How to draw gamelines

Case

On nearly every job I estimate, the architect requests a game line layout, and a shop drawing. Normally I do these in Autocad, however sometimes I can get away with just showing my MeasureSquare seam layout. It would be nice to be able to draw my gamelines within MeasureSquare. I would also like the ability to use an offset function similar to how it is done in Autocad.

 

Solution

 

There are two workarounds for this situation:

  1. You can draw the gamelines as a "takeout" and apply paint on them.
  2. Set gameline as LF product and manually calculate SF by multiplying width with total LF required.

The second method is faster.
