The Library drop down menu provides easy access to the in-built symbols in gCADPlus. Symbols are grouped in several different ways:

A standard set of symbols, each with the same canopy diameter (1000 mm or 3 feet)

A set of sized and categorized symbols - tall trees, small trees, large shrubs, medium shrubs etc.

A set of named symbols - primarily for you to add your own symbols.

A broadscale set of symbols used by designers working on large sites where the same symbol may be used many times and associated with different species.
