Move, Resize, Rotate and Delete Objects in DreamPlan
When creating a home design project in DreamPlan Home Design Software, you can edit, resize and move objects that you have added to your project. Objects in DreamPlan include interior and exterior furniture, accessories, plants and more. Objects such as walls and paths that are drawn cannot be resized, however, they can be deleted and re-drawn.
Select an Object to Edit
Adding a New Object
To add an object to your DreamPlan project, select the object from the left hand menu and then left-click in your project where you would like the object to be placed. After an object is placed, it will automatically be selected to resize, rotate or delete. A selected object will be identified by a blue box surrounding the object, like this:
Select an Object
If the object you would like to edit is not selected, you will need to select it in order to resize, move, rotate or delete the object. To select an object, simply click on the the Selection Tool hand symbol in the right hand menu to enter selection mode. When selection mode is active, the hand symbol in the right hand menu will have a green background. You can also enter selection mode by hitting the spacebar on your keyboard.
When selection mode is active, you will be able to left click on any object in your project to select the object for editing.
Resize, Rotate and Delete Objects
Once you have selected an object, you can use the options displayed in the selection frame to resize, rotate or delete the selected object. Objects that are drawn in your home design project, such as walls and paths, can not be rotated or resized and must be re-drawn. Objects such as walls and paths can be selected in order to be deleted.
To move a selected object, simply left-click and drag the object to its desired location in your project. Moving an object can be done at any point during the home design process.
To resize furniture, trees, plants, and other objects in DreamPlan, simply left click on the icon in the bottom right hand corner of the selection frame and drag your mouse outward to make an object larger. To make an object smaller, click and drag your mouse towards the object slightly.
Rotate an Object
You can easily rotate furniture, plants, cabinets and other DreamPlan objects when decorating your home. Rotating objects is also very useful for exterior design aspects, such as adding a ladder to a pool or rotating a swing in a backyard design project. To rotate an object, left-click on the top-left icon in the selection frame and drag your mouse left or right to rotate the object as needed.
As you rotate an object, DreamPlan will show the rotation in degrees.
Delete an Object
To delete an object, simply click on the trash can symbol in the upper right hand corner of the selection frame. If you accidentally delete an object, you can use the undo button in the right hand menu to reverse your changes.
