Build Tool

The Build tool allows you to quickly add or remove objects in a Space, as well as access the Mapmaker and upload custom objects. Just click Build (hammer icon) in the Left Nav Menu. The Build panel opens, allowing you to easily search for objects, quickly add a suggested object (like Draw Battle!), open the Object Picker, upload your own custom image, or access the Mapmaker (if you are a Builder or Owner).

When you've found the object you wish to place, just click anywhere on the Map to add it. When you're done placing objects, collapse the Build panel.

Tip: If you want to snap the object to the grid (handy for chairs and furniture), hold the Ctrl/⌘ key when you place the object.
