Step 15 - Adding the Fireplace

The next step in this process is to add the fireplace into the drawing. We've created the following drawing to make it simple to understand the dimensions of the fireplace.

The Path Tool will be used to create the Fireplace in one step rather than by using individual lines and the Join Paths command to create a compound path.

First, the Stroke Editor must be opened to change the Stroke Color to Black since the last drawn shape (door cutouts) used a stroke color of white.

Second, select the Path Tool (resembles the tip of a Calligraphy Pen) in the Drawing Toolbar.

Third, tap on the drawing where the lower right hand corner of the fireplace will go.

Next, move two feet to the left and tap on the drawing to insert the point for the lower left hand corner.

Next, move up 1 foot and add the next point.

Add the next 5 points of the Fireplace by using the same process.

Next, tap on the starting point to close the path and finish the creation of the fireplace.

The fireplace is not in the correct position and should be 4ft 6in from the lower right hand corner; however, it is currently 4 ft from this corner in the drawing. This is quite easy to remedy in TouchDraw. Either zoom in and drag the shape up half a foot or use the overlay panel to change the shapes Y position from 20 to 19.5.
