Not sure what you mean by the name of my program. I am using TurboFloorPlan-Pro version 188.8.131.521
This is what I was asking. This is the reason why I asked http://forums.turbofloorplan.com/index.php/topic,3231.msg15856.html
I know about straight lines. In my email I described how I am setting a point by drawing two arcs: one from each of two fixed points whose coordinates are known exactly and the radius of the arcs. From analytic geometry one should know that the intersection of these two arcs define exactly where the new point is.
Arcs are very nice in the paper, however, hard to develop in real life building. For this reason, I always recommend that if you wish to create a curved design, set the coordinates, tangents, dimensions and guidelines with straight lines.
Where do I find Projec Tape?
Last icon of the dims bar. As it's explained much better in the manual (page 78), it is kind of pointless to retype it here. Also, the manual is a PDF file, so it has an amazing feature called "Search"
My scale drawing is on paper. Please tell me how to import it into FTP. All I have is defined points based on arcs. I want to use this information to draw the objects in FTP. I already have the data.
You can use the Trace plan feature. You will find it in the page 276 of the user manual.
TFP, as any program, has a learning curve. The best way to learn the program, IMO, is practice + practice + practice => Read and follow the manual (this is important), see the videos => try to create elements not related with your project, so you will become familiar with the commands and how to develop the different components.
If you are interested, I have several training e-books, one of them is free. See links in my signature.
