We will make a tutorial about this but here is in a nutshell what you can also do.
An alternative method is of course using your modeling software to place markers where to place trees.
But this method works with normals. Attached is a list of pictures showing this method.
In picture 1 you can see my starting with the mouse on the wall of the building. This is so that you now the origin where to start dragging.
In picture 2 you can see that there is an ortoginal line from your original click position you also see a distance from your original position
In picture 3 we allign the lines so it is exactly 10 meters from the original click position
In picture 4 I do the same on the other side
In picture 5 I placed some random extra stones in between
In picture 6 I select them all
In picture 7 I select the menu then position and select space to evenly space the stones
In picture 8 you can see the result all stones are 10 meters from the original wall
Hope this helps!
You can also set to imperial units in the settings menu but it is not using feet/inches yet but only feet and feet decimal.
