Insert Point is a tool that allows you to modify the shape of an existing room. Right-click a room and the option to insert a point will be in that menu.
In addition to the Right-Click Menu the Insert Point tool can be found on the Edge section on the Home tab of Ribbon bar.
Points are automatically generated on each corner of a square or rectangular room and each time the mouse is clicked while plotting a room with the Right Angle or Polygon drawing tools. Points are also created while cutting a hole in a room, and these follow the same rules as above based on which hole tool is in use.
Half-way between each point is a handle. Handles and points are the primary means by which the shape of an existing room can be adjusted. This is done with the Select tool by clicking on a point or handle and dragging it in the desired direction.
- Right-click a room.
- In the menu that appears select the Insert Point tool. The mouse cursor will change to .
- Move the cursor along the edges of the room. Dimensions will be shown to aid in placing the point. Click on the desired location to insert the new point.
- Repeat step 3 for as many points as you need to add.
- Press the Escape key on the keyboard or choose another tool from the ribbon bar to stop inserting points.
