The Land Use Type Manager is used to view, edit, and create Building Types, Place Types, and their underlying Components. Upon project creation, your project will be populated with the default set of UrbanFootprint land use types, along with any types specified by your organization. Access the Land Use Type Manager by clicking the Manage iconfrom the left-hand menu bar.
You can add a new component or type to your library in either of two ways: by creating it from scratch, or as a copy of an existing Component or type which you then edit.
To create a new Component or type, follow these steps:
1. From Manage mode, navigate to the Components, Building Types, or Place Types screen.
2. To create a new Component or type from scratch, click
Add new and continue to step 5. Otherwise, continue to step 3 to create a Component or type as a copy of an existing type.
3. Select an existing Component, Building Type, or Place Type upon which you want to base your new type. You can scroll through the library list, or begin typing in the Search box to filter the list.
Save as and continue to Step 5.
6. To save your inputs, click
Save. Your Component or type will be saved. If the specifications are not valid, your Component or type will be saved but cannot be used for painting or inclusion in type definitions until you ensure all entries are valid.
