By default, the keypad appears whenever a room's side is selected. This functionality can be disabled through the Measure Options window. 


How To

Change the Length of a Room's Side:

1.  Choose the side of the room to be adjusted by left-clicking its handle with the Select tool.

2.  Confirm that the selected side is pointing in the desired direction. A side will extend or retract based on the direction of the arrow that appears over it when it is selected.

Tip: The direction of a side can be reversed by selecting it and clicking the Keypad_reverse.png button on the keypad.

Note: Using the keypad to change the length of one side of a rectangular room will automatically adjust the length of the opposite side by the same amount in order to maintain a rectangular shape.

In non-rectangular rooms, the selected side will have its length increased or decreased and surrounding sides will shrink or expand to compensate.
