Shape Handle - Increase the Length of a Wall

When you want to increase the length of one end of a wall not change the other end you can use the wall's Shape Handle. To access it you need to hover over the endcap of the wall and use the TAB key, select the Shape Handle as it is called. Now you can just use the Move tool to define a distance. It is quite easy. I'm trying a video out that I made very low tech. Experimenting with the approach...

Hey Steve,
Good Tip! I've been using it for a while... Glad "someone" finally got around to calling attention to its simplicity.
Thanks

BTW The visual aides are a great addition!

I like the movies, they really help!

BTW, you can also edit the temporary dimension after the shape handle is selected.
