ArcSite Drawing Settings


To adjust how the drawing and app behaves, you can access the Settings Panel in the top right corner of the app. 



Settings for Common Tasks or “Issues”

  • Choosing a unit (Metric / Imperial)  – Choose the top option – Units and Precision 
  • Choosing the level of precision (1′ vs. 1′ 1″ ... down to 1/64″ ) – Choose Units and Precision 
  • Changing how objects snap to each other 
    • Object Snap – This top level option turns on and off all of the individual snap options at once
    • Object Snap Settings – lets you choose from all of the individual snap options. Note if you are going to be drawing from the blank canvas, suggestion is to toggle on the Grid option.
  • Changing the Grid – The optional grid makes manual drawing easier. The grid options include:
    • Showing or hiding
    • Choosing a grid cell size
    • Whether objects will snap to the grid.
  •  Lines / Walls are changing in unexpected ways after changing another line/wall
    • Turning off the Smart Dimension option will stop the app from automatically changing “related”  lines.
