Once you are done with sketching the floor plan and are ready to convert it into a line drawing, click on the Set Scale tool.

A blue scale line appears with circular grips at both ends.

Click and drag each grip till the blue line is aligned to an edge whose dimension is known.

With your keyboard, type the actual dimension in millimeters, and press Enter. On an iPad, click on the displayed dimension. In the pop up that appears, type in the actual dimension in millimeters, and press submit.

The sketch is scaled.


You can set the scale of the project both before and after creating the drawing.
