So, I am trying to use the Geometry Editor in OS 2.4.0. I imported the floor plan PNG for the first floor and and sized and located is as necessary, assuming the units shown are in [ft] and not [m]. Then I moved on to the second floor and imported its floor plan PNG. However, I find it very difficult to now size and locate it so that it is on top of the first floor plan. It would help to be able to enter scaling factors somehow, and to pin a point on a floor plan, rather than just a corner of image, all while being zoomed in and not having to zoom out to grab a corner of the image. Is there more functionality to this than described on the website?

No, there is unfortunately not another way to resize images at the moment. But you're not the first person to ask for this; a similar request has been made here:

Yes indeed, very much the same request. Would be nice, also, to be able to draw a point on the image and say that this point will be fixed, and then draw a line on the image and say that this line represents x ft, thereby achieving a modicum of automatic scaling. Other than that, this is going in the right direction (once windows are available). In fact, it reminds me a little of the new Trace 3D.
