    By dragging a component into a “Project” or selecting an existing component and pressing the “Space Bar” the component will rotate at 90-degree increments, in relation to its current orientation.

    If the component is dragged over a wall that has been drawn at an angle and the space bar pressed, the component will be placed in line with the wall, as shown in Figure 1.

    Pressing the Space bar will still rotate the component at 90 degrees but this time in relation to the angle of the wall, as in Figure 2.

    Once the correct angle for the component has been established, the component can be moved to its correct location. So, using the wall to gain the correct ordination of the component, as shown in Figure 3.

    If the wall is curved the component will remain perpendicular to the curve of the wall, as in Figure 4.

    Again, the component can be moved away from the wall, but it will remain perpendicular to the curved wall, as shown in Figure 5.
