Top  Previous  Next

The image_16Insert image window allows you to add images to the floor_plan_16Floor Plan pane. These images can be useful for adding logos, crests,  decorative features and floor plan items that are not well represented by shapes. To display this window click the image_16Insert image button at the top of the floor_plan_16Floor Plan pane.

A preview of the currently selected image is displayed (if any). You can drag and drop a new image here, e.g. from Mac OS X Finder or a web browser.

If you have already added images to this plan you can select them from the Select image drop-down list.

Click on the Choose... button to select an image file to load. PNG, JPEG and BMP image file formats are supported.

Name is the name of the original image file.

Pixels is the size of the image in pixels (the preview may be displayed smaller in this window).

Set the Size field(s) to the dimensions of the image as it appears in the floor plan. Note that the image preview will not change.

Check Constrain proportions to display the image with the same width:height proportions (aspect ratio) as the image.

Set the Units drop-down list to your preferred units.

Set Angle to the rotation angle of the image on the floor plan. Note that the image preview will not change.

Notes can be used to store any relevant notes for the image. Click on Stamp >> to add a time and date stamped comment to the top of the Notes.

Click Add to accept the changes and close the window. Click Cancel to discard the changes.

Note The new image will be placed automatically in the floor_plan_16Floor Plan pane. It will attempt to place it in a space near the centre of the room. You can then drag it to the appropriate position.

The image data is stored inside your plan file, so you can move the plan file to another computer without losing your image data.

You can change any of the image properties at a later point using the image_16Image Properties window.

You can also insert an image by dragging an image file from your operating system or web browser into the floor_plan_16Floor Plan pane.
