How to Create a Floor Plan Using ConceptDraw PRO

Making a floor plan is the best way to get a handle on how to organize your living space, and find out what could be changed. Creating a floor plan to scale is a challenge of the home and interior design process and can be noticeably helpful for visualizing things like furniture layout. You can use ConceptDraw PRO to produce layouts of real estate properties. ConceptDraw PRO contains the large quantity of pre-designed vector objects that you can use for quick and easy designing such floor plans. You  can easily determine the size of the rooms and distances in you drawing. The ability to create a floor plan is delivered by the Floor Plans solution. This solution extends ConceptDraw PRO with libraries that contains over 500 objects of floor plan elements. There is a set of special objects that displays the sizes, corners, squares and other technical details using the current measurements of units. Read more
This astronomy illustration shows relative sizes of the Solar System planets.
"A planetary system is a set of gravitationally bound non-stellar objects in orbit around a star or star system. Generally speaking, planetary systems describe systems with one or more planets, although such systems may also consist of bodies such as dwarf planets, asteroids, natural satellites, meteoroids, comets and planetesimals as well as discernable features including circumstellar disks. The Sun together with its planetary system, which includes Earth, is known as the Solar System." [Planetary system. Wikipedia]
The astronomical illustration example "Planets to scale" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Astronomy solution from the Science and Education area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

How to Create a Directional Map Using ConceptDraw PRO

Travelers often use directional maps to find directions for certain places. These maps are guide millions of tourists to explore towns and cities worldwide. Searching addresses on a map, view nearby businesses, get driving directions - this is only a little of what directional maps is needed. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to create various kinds of directional maps. You can easily visualize city maps or destinations with driving directions and traveler information using special vector stencils libraries. Read more

How to Change Measurement Units in ConceptDraw Drawing

ConceptDraw PRO allows you to work with drawings with many different measurement units. Read more
The vector stencils library Map symbols contains 19 icons for labeling the maps using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
The vector stencils library Subway map contains 41 shapes for creating the subway (tube, metro) maps using the ConceptDraw PRO.
"The various features shown on a map are represented by conventional signs or symbols. For example, colors can be used to indicate a classification of roads. Those signs are usually explained in the margin of the map, or on a separately published characteristic sheet.
Some cartographers prefer to make the map cover practically the entire screen or sheet of paper, leaving no room "outside" the map for information about the map as a whole. These cartographers typically place such information in an otherwise "blank" region "inside" the map -- cartouche, map legend, title, compass rose, bar scale, etc. In particular, some maps contain smaller "sub-maps" in otherwise blank regions—often one at a much smaller scale showing the whole globe and where the whole map fits on that globe, and a few showing "regions of interest" at a larger scale in order to show details that wouldn't otherwise fit."

How to Resize Objects in ConceptDraw PRO

When creating diagram using ConceptDraw PRO, you can select, move, resize and rotate objects. After selecting an object (or objects) in a document, you can change it position, resize it or move an object to the desired position. The sizes of objects in ConceptDraw PRO can be changed by simple dragging, or you can set a particular size of any object. Using ConceptDraw PRO, you can re-size an object on the page using the absolute measurements instead of a mouse. You can make quick work of designing complex drawing using a combination of different-sized items. Read more

How to Change the Timescale in a Gantt Chart View

Most views in ConceptDraw PLAN have a timescale that shows the units of project time measurement (hour, day, week, etc.) used to schedule project tasks. You can change the timescale to view smaller or bigger time units, from hours all the way up to years. For example, you may want to show time in quarterы of the yearб or you may want to show Gantt chart across months and days. Read more
