copying and pasting walls

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello.
I drew a series of walls, all red, on the Ground floor.
I then copied and pasted them on the 1st floor. Everything in the Floor plan and section settings is red. They have red contours, but no red fill. What happened?
Thank you.

How did you go to the 1st Floor? By going up a story or by activating a saved View?
My guess is that if you went by clicking a saved view, it may have changed the Model View Options or the Floor Plan Cut Plane setting.

Thank you for the reply. In the mean time I discovered what the issue was - I copied and pasted the walls, but they were not high enough to be cut on the new level. So that's wy I could not see them entirely red, as their plan section was.

If they are standard vertical walls, then perhaps try setting them to symbolic cut and do away with the cut plane altogether?

Cheers,

Where can I find that? I did not find it among the properties / floor plan and section settings.

Check the Floor Plan Display.

Unfortunately it is not available for my red walls.

igreere:

Change the parameter above it, Show on Stories to Home Story Only, and the Symbolic Cut option will appear. This will ignore the Floor Plan Cut Plane, so is the simplest solution if the Walls only appear on their home story and always will be shown as cut. The All Relevant Stories option is best used for multistory Walls, or when using the Floor Cut Plane for changing the Wall's appearance for different Views.
