How to use the application

(I) How to start to draw a Room object

For each room in your floor plan create a new room object by click mouse and drag “Room” button on the left side of the windows into the view area.

After room object was placed into the view, you will need to double click on the room object to start edit the shape of the room.

Below are tips to edit shape of the room (in Room Edit mode):

+ Single click on a line wall and drag to move the wall position

+ Single click on an intersection point and drag to move the intersection point position

+ Double click on a line wall to add a new intersection point

+ Double click on an intersection point to remove the intersection point

+ Use mouse to drag an area to select lines (walls) within the selected area (the selected line background will turn red) then use controls on the top of the window to change line setting (width, dash, color…)

+ To change a straight line wall to curved wall and vice versa, select line (the line background will turn red) then right click mouse to show a action menu, from this menu choose appropriate menu item to convert to curved or straight wall.

+ If you want to disable wall (not drawing it): select the line then press “Delete” key

+ To copy properties of one wall to other walls: select the old wall, press “Cmd + C” en select other walls and press “Cmd + V”

+ To change text content inside of the room object: input new content into the “Text Editing dialog”. ★Note: special text “%area%” is used to represent area size information

+ You could also fill the room with custom texture by using setting in “Text Editing dialog”

+ Use “Trim Wall” button on the top right of the window to draw a rectangle area to remove/trim all walls within that rectangle.

+ Click outside of the room object to quit Room Edit mode

(II) Add new line / polyline (Wall)

Create a new line (wall) by Click and drag “Wall” button on the left of the windows into the view.

Below are tips to wall line:

+ Use mouse to drag an area to select lines (walls) within the selected area (the selected line background will turn red) then use controls on the top of the window to change line setting (width, dash, color…)

+ Double click on a line wall to add a new intersection point or to break a line into two lines that attaches with each other

+ Double click on an intersection point to remove the intersection point

+ Single click on a single line wall and drag to move the line (wall) position (if this is a polyline wall, press Command or Alt or Ctrl key while dragging will move all polyline walls along)

+ Single click on an intersection point and drag to move the intersection point position

+ If you want to disable wall (not drawing it): select the line then set the “Line” check box on the top of the dialog to OFF

+ Use “Trim Wall” button on the top right of the window to draw a rectangle area to remove/trim all walls within that rectangle.

(III) Add Door / Stair to the room:

Select appropriate door, window or stair type from left tool bar then add it to the room that you created before.

To flip the direction of door / window (from inside door to outside door), double click on the door / window object

(IV) How to select multi objects:

Select multi objects is like in AutoCAD, please do as following:

+ drag mouse from left to right to select all object that lie totally inside the selected drag rectangle area.

+ drag mouse from right to left to select all object that is inside or cross the select rectangle area

(V) Export to image:

After designing, to export to image file, please press Cmd-E key to export to PDF, JPEG, PNG…

Note: When you design a large scale floor (example: “400 ft” × “400 ft”, please do as following to make the export process faster:

– Reduce length scale (example: in Preference dialog, set 1 feet = 1 to 10 pixel only)

– Export to PDF file (export to PDF is often faster than to JPEG or PNG…)

– If you want to export to JPEG image with large floor, please export with small zoom setting as following:
+ zoom the view to 20%
+ select menu “Export with current Zoom”

★Note:

To design a complex floor plan you should do as following:

– In the first Layer (named “Layer 1”) you add Room, wall, door, window, stair to it

– Create new Layers to add interior objects. By doing that when you edit interior objects, room, wall object will not be moved, resized accidentally

– Add more layer to hold independence group of objects

Free Art License 1.3

Free Art License 1.3

[ Copyleft Attitude ]

Free Art License 1.3 (FAL 1.3)

Preamble
The Free Art license authorities you to freely copy, spread, and transform creative works while respecting the author’s rights.

Far from ignoring such rights, the Free Art License recognizes them and protects them. It reformulates their application by allowing each and every creative use of the mind’s creation, regardless of their genres and the forms in which they are expressed.

While the application of copyright law commonly results in restricting the public’s access to the mind’s creation, the Free Art License facilitates. Its intent is to allow the use of the resources constitutive of a work; to enable new conditions for creation in order to amplify the possibilities of creation. The Free Art License allows enjoyment of works, while recognizing everyone’s rights and responsibilities.

The invention and development of digital technologies, Internet and Free Software has changed the framework of creation: mind’s creation can obviously be spread, exchanged, and transformed. They lend themselves favorably to producing common works that anyone can add to for the benefit of all.

It is the essential motivation for this Free Art License: to promote and protect these productions of the mind according to the principles of copyleft: freedom to use, to copy, to spread, to transform, and prohibition of exclusive appropriation.

Definitions

By “work” we mean either the initial work, the subsequent works or the common work as defined hereafter:

The common work: it is a work comprised of the initial work as well as all subsequent contributions to it (originals and copies). It is created on the initiative of the initial author who, by choosing this license, defines the conditions under which contributions are made.

The initial work: the work created by the initiator of the common work (as defined above), of which copies can be modified by whom wishes.

Subsequent works: contributions of authors who participate in the evolution of the common work by exercising the rights to reproduce, spread, and modify confered by the license.

Originals (sources or resources of the work): each dated copy of either the initial work or any subsequent work, that its authors present as reference for any subsequent updates, interpretations, copies or reproductions.

Copy: each reproduction of an original as defined by this license.

1. OBJECT
The aim of this license is to define the conditions under which you can freely enjoy this work.

2. EXTENT OF THE USAGE
This work is subject to copyright law, and the author, by this license, specifies the extent to which you can copy, spread, and modify it.

2.1 FREEDOM TO COPY (OR TO REPRODUCT)
You have the right to copy this work for you, for your friends or for any other person, by employing whatever technique you choose.

2.2 FREEDOM TO SPREAD (TO INTERPRET, TO REPRESENT, DISTRIBUTE)
You can freely spread copies of these works, modified or not, whatever the medium, wherever you wish, for a fee or for free, if you observe all the following conditions:

* attach this license, in its entirety, to the copies or indicate precisely where the license can be found,
* specify to the recipient the names of the authors of the originals, including yours if you have modified the work,
* specify to the recipient where he will be able to access the originals (either initial or subsequent).

The authors of the originals may, if they wish to, give you the right to spread the originals under the same conditions as the copies.

2.3 FREEDOM TO MODIFY
You have the right to modify copies of the originals (initial or subsequent) provided you observe all the following conditions:

* all conditions in article 2.2 above, if you spread modified copies;
* indicate that the work is a modified work and, if possible, the nature of the modifications;
* spread the subsequent work under the same license or any compatible license.

The authors of the originals may, if they wish to, give you the right to modify the originals under the same conditions as the copies.

3. RELATED RIGHTS
No action confering either author’s rights or related rights may interfere with the freedoms confered by this license.

This is why, for example, interpretations must be subject to the same license or a compatible license. Similarly, integrating the work in a database, a compilation or an anthology must not be an obstacle to the enjoyment of the work as defined in this license.

4. INCORPORATION OF THE WORK
Any incorporation of this work into a larger work not subject to the Free Art License must ensure full exercise of the rights confered by this license.

If the work cannot be accessed apart from the larger work incorporating it, then incorporation is only allowed under the condition that the larger work be subject either to the Free Art License or a compatible license.

5. COMPATIBILITY CRITERIA
A license is compatible with the Free Art License if, and only if:

* it gives the authorization to copy, spread, and modify copies of the work, including for commercial purposes, and without any other restrictions than those imposed by the observance of the other compatibility criteria;
* it ensures proper attribution of the work to its authors and access to previous versions of the work when possible;
* it recognizes the Free Art License as compatible (reciprocity);
* it prescribes that modifications to the work are subject either to the same license or to a license which also observes the present compatibility criteria.

6. YOUR INTELLECTUAL RIGHTS
The object of this license is neither to deny your author’s rights on your contribution nor any related rights. By choosing to contribute to the evolution of this common work, you only agree to give others the same rights with regard to your contribution as those which were granted to you by this license. Giving these permissions does not require giving up your intellectual rights.

7. YOUR RESPONSABILITIES
The freedom to enjoy the work as defined by the Free Art License (right to copy, spread, modify) implies that everyone the responsability for their own actions.

8. DURATION OF THE LICENSE
This license takes effect as of your acceptance of its terms. The act of copying, distributing, or of modifying the work constitutes a tacit agreement. This license will remain in effect for as long as the copyright which is attached to the work. If you do not respect the terms of this license, you automatically lose the rights that it confers.

If the legal status or legislation to which you are subject makes it impossible for you to respect the terms of this license, you may not make use of the rights which it confers.

9. VARIOUS VERSIONS OF THE LICENSE

You will always have the choice of accepting the terms contained in the version under which the copy of the work was communicated to you, or alternatively, to use the provisions of one of the subsequent versions.

10. SUB-LICENSING
Sub-licenses are not authorized by the present license. Any person wishing to make use of the rights that it confers will be directly bound to the authors of the common work.

11. LEGAL FRAMEWORK FOR INTERPRETING THIS LICENSE
This license is written with respect to both French law and the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works.
