Moving the Entire Drawing


Occasionally you may want to move the entire drawing instead of moving each element. Since PadCAD only allows for one element to be selected at any given time, we have built a tool to move all the elements simultaneously.  This process is called re-centering.

To re-center a drawing:

  1. 1)Select an element on the drawing. Any element will do, such as a door or a wall.

  1. 2)Click the joystick button.

  1. 3)The joystick tool will appear toward the lower left corner of the screen.

  1. 4)The re-center button will appear toward the lower right side of the screen.

  1. 5)Decide where you want the center of your drawing to be.  Using your finger drag the drawing around until you find it.

  1. 6)Now place your desired center close to the center of the screen.

  1. 7)Click the re-center button.

  1. 8)The new center will now be located in the middle of the screen.
