How To…“Smart Fill”
Calculating the area of a design is already difficult, but doing it live, in an active sketch, without a single straight line, in seconds? Now that’s a tall ask!! Meet “Smart Fill”, a fill tool that not only calculates the area of the fill, it actually updates as you sketch. Below is a quick “How To” guide to get started using smart fill on any drawing, sketch, illustration or image.

1. Target and Sketch
Assure your drawing scale is set and move the Smart Fill target to any area you want to fill or calculate. Ready for the magic? You can now sketch over the fill to change the area. Slice a room in half and watch it reduce or, erase a wall and watch it expand. Not seeing these buttons? Assure you have the latest update here.
2. Add Fill & Area Labels
Use the toolbar to adjust the tolerance of the fill, change colors or apply labels and color. Be sure to add the fill color before you add area label. TIP: When adjusting the fill tolerance hold down the adjuster to expand the threshold and allow tighter adjustments.
3. Multiple Fills
Want to fill and calculate several areas at once? Tap the “+” target to add up as many areas as you want. HINT: The placement of the target sets the placement of the area label. To delete a fill simply tap the “x” on the area label.
4. Add it Up
In case you missed it, when in “+” mode your areas will total up in an area chart for you. You can drag and drop this chart into other apps or copy and paste into a text layer.
