Renovation: Showing new and existing walls on same plan


Hi I am trying to figure out how to show new walls hatched or poche'd and existing walls as dashed on a floor plan. I am not providing a separate demo plan. Is there a way to do this with composite walls? Thanks!

You can override the existing walls, but all will be affected.

Can you post a sketch of what you trying to achieve?

If you mean you want to show individual skins of a wall as existing, new or to be demolished, no you can't.

The reno filters and graphic overrides affect the entire wall.
