Hi :)
Not sure if Draw is the right tool to use.

My workplace is moving soon and i have taken measurements of the oddly shaped big new room at the 
new place.  My first thought had been to make a 2d paper-'model' and then use smaller bits of paper 
to represent furniture to test-out different layouts.

Could Draw be used to do this instead, reasonably easily?

Tom :)

I would think this is quite possible. First you use the line tool to draw the outline of the room. You might want to indicate where the doors or any windows are in the room. Then create outlines for your furniture. You can drag and drop them wherever you want them. I did this to figure out how my son and I were going to share a large bedroom about 4 years ago. My design did not seem possible the way I saw it, but all the furniture fit right where the drawing had them. I have done this since that time to move furniture to new locations. Again, works like a charm.
