  2. Tap the start point
  3. Tap each vertex point
  4. Double-tap the start point to close the polygon.





Drawing a circle

  1. Double-tap to create a circle. 
  2. Adjust the circle size by either:
  • tapping on the circle's perimeter and dragging to the desired size.
  • entering the desired radius or diameter in Inspector Panel.


Note: You can move the Circle and the Text annotation by dragging them around the map by touching and dragging at the centre.






Adding and moving points

To adjust a measurement touch any point along the line, area, or radius, and drag to a new position.

If you have made a mistake, the easiest way to remove a point is to tap-select it, drag it first, and then double-tap to remove it.
