Note: It's far more common (and less error-prone) to define width=*, height=* and length=* separately.

The key size=* gives the dimensions of a feature.

Most often used on advertising devices, and in that case it indicates the size of the advertising device, including the frame, but without its support.

Size is given with two or three parameters, separator is a '*'.
If three parameters are provided : length * height * width.
If two parameters are provided : length * height.
'length', 'height', and 'width' must be understood this way :


Examples of use

size=1*1.5: the feature is 1 meter length and 1.5 meter height.
size=1*1.5*0.2: the feature is 1 meter length, 1.5 meter height, and 0.2 meter width.

size=* can be used on nodes.
