The Measure Desktop screen can be broken down into 6 key areas. Most of these are customizable so that you can find tune it to your needs.
This portion of the screen is the primary work space for Measure projects. The drawing tools found on the Ribbon Bar and elsewhere will be used to draw and arrange the floor plan here. This space will also be used when allocating material in Layout Mode and viewing the drawing in 3D.
The ribbon bar contains all the tools and features necessary for creating and editing rooms in the Drawing Area. Tools are grouped together under tabs (Home, Room, etc.) based on common functionality.
Additionally, there is a File button that opens a menu from which users can save their current project, start a new project, open an existing project, print reports, and so on.
Some features in Measure generate their own Ribbon Bar tabs containing tools that are specific to the feature being used. These specialized tabs must be closed before other tools and features can be used again.
