interior elevation & zone name?

proto

Hopefully this is a simple syntax question easily answered by the pros here...I'm having trouble with a zone name not populating to the interior elevations. [Not sure if it's problematic for other rooms, this is the first I'm creating in this file.]

 

<ZoneName> is the autotext listed in the Name of the Interior Elevation Selection Settings.

When I spacebar-created the marker, it tried to make 8 int elev views. So, I used the 2-point (or rectangle) tool option to select the corners of the room. That, at least, got me to the expected four interior elevations.

 

Two out of four correctly name the room where the interior elevation marker resides.

 

The Kitchen zone perimeter is precisely positioned on the inside surface of the bounding walls. So are the offending neighboring Zone names.

 

What am I missing about getting these to track appropriately with the Zone within which the interior marker resides? [I am aware I could force the name & move on.]

Thanks for any assistance!

OK, I figured it out.

In the Interior Elevation Marker Settings, I changed the Horizontal Range from Infinite to Limited.

For some reason, there was a Limit line for each of the two weirdly named elevations that drifted past the bounds of the kitchen walls.

I slid those back into the room & boom, back to regularly expected operation!

I don't have a solution for you, but can you confirm the kitchen/dining and kitchen/closet zones don't actually touch?

i.e. there is a wall gap between them?

Works fine for me? Even when the Kitchen/Dining Zones touch

But I did a manual placement, click in corner and diagonal click in the other

you can't build a line

that would be my expectation too & I followed same manual placement you did

 

i'll check today if any demo vs new have any weird overlaps...maybe it's reading something there?
