Upload Your Own Floorplan

 

Once the Floorplan has been uploaded, it must be scaled properly to ensure that space is accurately represented on the diagram. Use the Scale tool to scale the floorplan:

  1. Click on File in the menu and then click on Scale Floorplan

  2. Click and drag to draw out a line segment along a known dimension of the diagram, such as the scale bar, a door or a wall

  3. Hold down the Shift key to lock the scale line to a straight line

  4. Enter the actual length of the line, and then select Scale

As long as the file itself was originally to-scale, the diagram will be to-scale in Social Tables as well!
