Set the lay direction for one or more rooms based on two sets of GPS coordinates (i.e. longitude and latitude). This is a specialty feature that will primarily be used on projects in which an architect requires GPS room alignment.
- Select one or more rooms.
- Choose "Lay by Coordinates".
- In the dialog that appears, enter two sets of coordinates. The Project Location is the physical location of the Measure drawing on the Earth. The External Location is the place on the Earth the lay direction should point toward.
The "Map it" button below each coordinate allows you to see that location on a map using an online mapping site. The URL used for this feature can be specified under Measure Options>User Settings>Drawing>Mapping.
- When you are done, click OK to close the dialog box and set the lay direction.
