Start by clicking to create the approximate shape of your fence and don’t worry about getting the shape exactly perfect or to scale. You’ll add gaps, gates, grades and distances later.
Complete your fence shape by carefully clicking on the first point you created. When your cursor changes from a crosshair () to a hand (), you’ll know you are connecting to another point and not creating a new one.
If you want to create a run of fencing that terminates at a post, simply double-click to stop your fence.
Add gaps where you won’t need fence panels or gates
When you’ve completed the general shape of your fence, it’s time to add gaps for things like buildings, trees, water features or other obstacles. You’ll do this by placing posts () on either side of the obstacle and then removing the unneeded fence between the two posts.
Carefully select a line of fencing and double-click to drop a post on one side of the obstacle. Select the line again and double-click to drop a post on the other side of the obstacle.
