How to draw a site with specific dimensions:

Click draw and define the site by left clicking on the site boundaries. Click once to start the draw tool then enter the specific length of the segment. Click to finalize the direction of the line then continue to enter the other segments of the site.

How to draw a site with metes and bounds:

Select Metes & Bounds under the site tab. Input your metes and bounds except for the last segment. As you input your metes and bounds a preview will show on the right-side of the dialog. The dashed line shows how TestFit will close the site when you are done. Don't place your last segment and click apply. TestFit will close your site and as long as the site is not self-intersecting, the segments aren't too small or have minuscule angles the site will be placed. You can always go back into that dialog to edit your site.

How to add a site:

Click the + button and define the site.
