The Dimensions window allows you to change the dimensions of the floor plan. To display this window click the button at the top of the Floor Plan pane.
Units allows you to choose metres or feet, as you prefer.
Size is the size of the floor plan metres/feet across (X) and down (Y).
Area is across x down, in m2 or ft2 (depending on your choice of units).
Area per guest is the amount of area per guest, in m2 or ft2 (depending on your choice of units).
Area per accepted guest is the amount of area per guest who has accepted, in m2 or ft2 (depending on your choice of units). As a rough guideline:
Note Local fire regulations may specify limits on the number of guests for a venue.
Seat width is the number of metres/feet between the centre of one seat and the next (including elbow room). Automatic table size is calculated from seat width, so increasing/decreasing seat size may increase/decrease table sizes.
Check Draw grid if you would like a visible grid to be drawn in the Floor Plan pane. If checked you can set the drawn grid Size in the chosen units. Every fifth line is shown darker to make it easier to count grid squares.
Check include in print/copy/export if you would like to include grid lines when you print, export or copy to the clipboard.
Note Printing/exporting a fine grid (e.g. each foot) in a large room can slow down print/export times considerably.
Check Snap to grid if you would like the centres of items in the Floor Plan pane to be constrained to a grid. If checked you can set the snap to grid Size in the chosen units. If you turn Snap to grid on or change the snap grid Size, you will be given the option to snap all tables, shapes and text to the new grid.
Note The drawn grid and the snap grid are independent of each other.
