It seems that fill patterns should be an option for the Slab Tool. We find that drawing a fill for tile and then a slab is redundant. Why, the two functions should be available in the same tool.
This would save sooo much time when making any flooring and ceiling tiles as well.
Sergio wrote:You have a good point here. There are many situations where a slab needs multiple fills. In the room/zone issue perhaps the fill should be associated with the zone tool and override the slab setting when the zone is active. The other situation that occurs to me is when a floor has a border around a field. This occurs often in stone and tile floors, sometimes in wood and carpet floors, and there are the occasional floors with mixed materials. I suppose these could be done manually (the old fashioned way).
An option would be to associate slab fills with zones. Then you could have one room(zone) have tiles, while the next room(zone) on the same slab does not.
