Orientation change of walls and beams relative to guidelines should be more streamlined.

Just an ease-of-use suggestion. If the user changes the guide line location within a beam, the beam doesn't move (good!). On the other hand, the user cannot change the location of the guide line location within a wall without moving the wall.

 

It would be nice to be able to do both for both types of objects:

- Flip orientation (guideline location stays the same, object is moved)

- Change guideline orientation (doesn't affect position of object, guideline location stays the same)

 

It might be worth considering implementing this ease-of-use feature for slabs, stairs, roofs, and other objects which use guide lines/planes.

Are you sure?

Reference line stays put and the beam moves left/right/up/down when you change the anchor point.

Beam moves left/right if you adjust the reference offset value.

 

The same with walls when you flip walls on the reference line - the wall moves and the reference line stays put.

 

What version of Archicad are you using?

I think there was a time when the beam didn't move, but now beams, columns and walls all move around the reference line (which stays in the same spot) for consistency.

 

There is a command to modify wall reference line while keeping the wall in place.
