Now select the  'Furniture' button furniture button again. You will notice that the dialog is automatically scrolled to the position when the last symbol was selected. Now scroll to the 'Sofas' group and click on 'Sofa 1' as shown below and then 'Insert'.

The picture below shows the required sofa position in dotted red outline and the sofa (before placement) in blue attached to the cursor. You can see the insertion point is on the front left corner of the sofa. So to achieve the position required move the approximate point P1 and click. Now swing the cursor down and hold down the shift key key, when the sofa is orientated correctly click into place.

Continue to insert the various furniture items as shown in the ground floor layout. All of the 'Lounge' and 'Dining' items used are found in the Furniture library.

All of the 'W.C.' items used are found in the Sanitary library. All of the 'Kitchen' and 'Utility' items used are found in the Kitchen library.


Sometimes depending upon the insertion point it is not possible to achieve the desired position first time. You may have to place the symbol approximately and use the move button Move command to position the symbol.

The Kitchen work surfaces were added simply using the line button Line command.
