This article summarizes bullet points of the default avatar and avatar editor.

Avatar Size
Avatar size controls Specific measurement areas and proportions. There are two sectors: total body and details.
1. Start with the total body then edit details.
2. Click on the numbers or measurement lines on the avatar to check which measurement you are editing.

Measurement is for editing user-created measurement marking. In CLO, we could use the measurement tool for areas where default measurement markings are not provided.

The arrangement allows you to edit existing or create custom Arrangement Points & Bounding Volumes to assist in pattern arrangement.
