Hi everyone !
Simple question, how to set the line type of slab that is displayed on the floor below?

It should be simple but in Dialog Settings of slab it is not possible to select the type of line on the floor below.

OK I found It. Option>> Project Preferences>>Legacy .

 

P.S. I don't understand why there? and why it was not possible to give in Dialog Settings? The user has to get tired.

Thanks Eduardo

I just found it before a moment and was surprised.

It is a Legacy option so it is there because sometime between 1984-2010 it was the easiest place to control, probably before MVOs were introduced.

Exectly, and it's sad, because the user has to check in Dialog Settings, then MVO, then in Work Environment just in case, and only then has to guess that it can be in Project Preferences.

I still hear that Archicad is intuitive 😀
