Step 24 - Adding the Dimension Lines

The next step in creating the floor plan drawing is to add the dimension lines. TouchDraw makes it easy to create dimension lines in a drawing.

First, use the Line Tool to draw the line that will make up the dimension line. Start by drawing the dimension line for the vertical size of the dining room.

Next, touch and hold on the created line or press on the Contextual Menu Button in the Top Toolbar to bring up the Contextual Menu. The contextual menu includes an option called Style as Dimension Line when the currently selected shape is a line.

The line will be turned into a dimension line with an auto-filled length and arrowheads on each end when this option is selected.

Use the same process as above to create the additional dimension lines for the drawing. A few shortcuts are available for speeding up the creation of dimension lines. We have created the following video to demonstrate the steps outlined above as well as to show a quick method for drawing the rest of the dimension lines with a minimal amount of effort.

The Floor Plan should appear as below once all dimension lines have been completed.
