I'm just starting to use the "Design Size" in editing the rooms in room mode to show on my floor plans for my website.   Is there a way to change things so it shows feet and inches rather than just rounding?  I have a room for instance that is 14' 8.5" wide and the label shows at 15'.   I would be fine with 14' 9" but rounding to the next foot seems a little too much and maybe a little misleading to potential buyers looking at plans on my website.

 

Thanks!

 

 

Sam

Sam,

 

Not that I have been able to determine.

Did discover that once inches reaches 7" it rounds to next foot up.

Also, if inches are between 0" - 6+", rounds down to nearest foot.

 

You could always explain the issue that it is approx. room sizes

Hi Sam,

 

Go to "Drawing Options_Drawing Options_Dimension/Extension Options". Click on the Feet & Inches" option

Thanks Phil!   I figured it had to be there somewhere.

Careful Sam when you use the room size as it will go to theouter most location.  For instance if you enter a bedroom in a 3' alcove it will add on the alcove dimension even though a room may be 12'x12'.  So you will end up with a dimension of 15'x12'

 

Also not that it takes the largest number first regardless of whether it is width or depth.  Seems wront to me as I have always thougth it to be width x depth when I describe a room size.  Maybe in 2016 release

Is there a way to make the inches text smaller than the foot text size or even use superscript on the inches?

No, sorry - unless you write the text in Word (or similar) and paste it into a multi-format note, but that's way too much work.

Heather, you can change the way it reads.  Edit one of the rooms to bring up the edit table.  There is a heading for size type and you can change it there for each room.

Be very careful and check every single room dimension.  I have had 3 cases where the bubbles were in the correct location but the reading was off by several feet.  The reading changed when I relocated the bubble to another spot on the same wall.

In SoftPlan 2020 they added that you can specify the room sizes in Width x Depth or Depth x Width instead of just the largest numbers.

If you are talking about what order the room dimension can be designated when you edit the room and bring up the table, it is there, at least in the version of 2018 that I had.  I just recently updated to 2020 so have not brought 2018 back up but I know it is there because I changed the dimension order all the time in room mode..  I waited to upgrade until I feel the program bugs are worked out.  I be darn if I have not have found a problem in foundation dimensioning that I did not have in 2018.

Well I never!

 

The option to change them wasn't where I would have looked, but it is available - and as you say was also available in 2018.
