Outside / Inside wall face marked somehow in floorplan



Is there any option to mark outside or inside wall face on floor plan? Maybe with graphic override or model view options, or something else, but I didnt find a way?

I need to know at interior wall (for the exterior wall it is obvious of course) what is outside or inside face of the wall without opening its composite structure.

Thank you a lot.

If you select the wall, you can see in the info box which side the reference line is located on.

You can then see the reference line and you will know which side is which.

But you have to select the wall.





Otherwise you can use an autotext label to show the 'reference line location'.

Then in your 'on-screen view options' you can turn on the 'wall & beam reference lines' (they don't print).




The labels you can hide in a layer that you can turn off and the reference lines can be turned on/off at any time.


So with a combination of the label and the reference line, you will know which side of the wall is which.
