SoftPlan 2014 New Features: Dimensions

dimensioned items in place.
All visible items can have angled dimensions
applied. Formerly this was only assessable to items in the current drawing mode.
Align Extension Start Point option added. Acts
a way to pull most of the extensions lines further away from the floorplan.
Include Openings option added. De-select this
to exclude placement of the Extension Lines from Openings as is the drawing standard in

length of an Arc.
Snap is always used by the Dimension Point command
to locate items. This makes dimensioning short distances simpler.
The Edit dialog Move arrow is automatically selected and highlighted based on the cursor location on the
dimension line when edit was selected. In the example above Edit was selected at the pink cross ,
right of the dimension number, the Move right button was selected and highlighted by default therefore
eliminating the step of selecting the direction.

these type of openings to be dimension differently than the other windows and doors on the drawing.
