Jafo......thanks for posting that link to Floorplanner, great fun......... been having so much fun and it's so intuitive that it's taken a few days to get around to reading the downloadable manual.

I've been checking out the Floorplan software, can anyone give me the clue on how to draw the initial circle there? Mahalo!

I haven't played around with it that much, maybe djspn can fill us in? I'm afraid everyone says my design skills are too Spartan and utilitarian (function over form et all) that I gave up years ago lol..

Hi Melissa..........first off, thank you very much for all your knowledgeable contributions here.
What I did, and haven't seen a better way after reading the manual:
Set easy to work w grid settings via the WRENCH icon, upper right, the bottom line is Grid settings ( 5 and 5 works well).
Using the WALL tool (3rd from left in the construction box) create a square rotated 45*, the diagonal being the diameter of the yurt (see attachment for 30'yurt).
Click on a wall
Click the Info Button "I"
Select WALL in the dropdown
Click the curved icon, top right
You can now curve each wall to create a round shape, the gridlines will help you keep the cursor in the middle of the wall as you curve it, get the numbers the same for each wall,think it is 23.55' (30x3.14/4) for a 30' yurt, (see attachment) , enlarging the view will help w this step.
Sounds complicated, but if you take it step by step, I think it should be straightforward, ask again if it's not clear.
Good luck and again thanks for your contributions here

Ahh Awesome! Thank you for the play by play, I hope to get back to experimenting with it this weekend. I'm enjoying this forum, thankful to Jafo for all his hard work. It's always a joy to share yurt knowledge.

Jalo......is there a way to delete a recent post?
If I hover over the EDIT button it says EDIT/DELETE POST, but after clicking the EDIT button I see no option to delete.
I'm playing around w images of something I've worked up on Floorplanner but haven't yet figured out how to display them in appropriate scale, don't want to clutter the thread w experiments.
Thanks

You can only delete a post after a certain amount of time. What post are you looking to delete?

I was trying to delete my previous one, #18.
I could still see the EDIT button, but didn't see a way to delete.
Be good to know for future reference, like it said, don't want to clutter the thread w experiments til i figure out how to appropriately scale images.
