Contractor Drawing Tricks

Removing Measurements

Need to remove measurements from a drawing? You don't have to do it line by line! Next time you need a drawing without measurements shown, try turning the measurements off after creating the first line. Do this by clicking on the line and unchecking the itemized and full measurement settings in the lower right corner of your screen. As you continue to create lines, the measurement settings will stay turned off until you turn them back on.

Moving Elements

It is natural to assume that you would have to keep your finger, stylus, or cursor directly on top of the element to move it within the drawing tool. But you don't! Just click on the object you want to move; you will know it is selected when it is highlighted blue. You can then click and hold anywhere on the page then move your cursor to move that object.
