 When importing the pdf or image into the software, the whole plan is slightly rotated by a few degrees that the angle between horizontal line in the plan and x axis is not zero. To address this problem, please follow the steps below:


1. Right-click on the imported image  

2. Select "set up take off scale"  

3. Select "Pick-up two points to set-up scale"  

4. Click on the drop down arrow and select "all direction", then click ok  

5. Select any dimension (preferrably the longest) on the horizontal direction of the image and draw a line along it. Enter the actual size of it.

6. Check "adjust angle automatically " box.

7. Double check the dimension using the ruler as you would regularly In this way, the skewed plan has been corrected.
