PlantManager can be used to document and schedule surface treatments or finishes.

Each finish type can be represented in the drawing by three preset types;

  • an area (either closed polyline or hatch)
  • a block object representing a furniture or utility item
  • a linear element such as a garden edge

A finish can be assigned by creating a ’Finish’ list and entering (or importing) data defining each item.

As with a plant list, each item comprises a key name and custom fields to specify its characteristics. In the case of finishes which are represented by areas, graphic elements including hatch patterns, colours and linetypes can be used to distinguish each item.
