Hi Dan :)
Many many thanks for this advice! :) You may have saved me many many hours of intense frustration
tomorrow! Knowing that someone else has used this successfully is such a relief.
So, the key is the line tool :)
Thanks and regards form

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?
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.
