Also, Schedule tools can be personalized just for you on request. Please contact us if you are interested.
BPT Information Palette
This palette indicates coordinate, length and dimension of objects. Also, you can change snap preference (snap to grid, intersection point or path).
The length measurement function calculates length of a straight line or a free curved line precisely and instantly. Moreover, it calculates total measurement of selected multiple objects or segments instantly.
Dimension function (newly added on ver. 4) calculates area of a selected object. When multiple objects are selected, it shows sum of all objects’ area.
Recalculation Button (marked as red) is also a new feature for version 4. In case an object size was changed, a dimension line will be automatically recalculated and revised just by a click of this button.
* Dimension function can calculate and show the area in mm2, cs2, m2, in2, ft2. Also, you can add two custom units to display them on BPT-Pro info window at the same time.
