Topics:

If you right click an item SoftPlan presents a number of tools that you can use to edit that item. You will also find an item called 'Label'. If you select Label and then click anywhere on the screen a note dialog will open and place information about that item in the note.

The label for a roof would look like:

ROOF
AREA: 1240.0 SQ FT.
MATERIAL AREA: 1240.0 SQ FT.
PERIMETER: 140' 8.000"
THICKNESS: 0' 0.500"

And the label for a stair looks like:

STAIR
TOTAL RISE: 8' 11.500"
TOTAL RUN: 11' 8.000"
RISER HEIGHT: 0' 7.1563"
TREAD DEPTH: 0' 10.000"
NUMBER OF RISERS: 15

Great for quickly adding notes about the various items in your drawings or for verifying that something is correct.
