The Zone Boundary recognition algorithm does not take Partial Structure Display setting into consideration.
There is only three options: consider Wall faces as Zone Boundaries, consider Wall Reference Lines as Zone Boundaries, or draw Zone Boundaries manually.
I can see a wish here: provide additional Zone Boundary Recognition options for Zones:
1. Make them respond to changes in Partial Structure Display settings.
2. Option to consider inside face of Wall finishes as Zone Boundaries (so Finishes are calculated as part of Zone area).
3. Option to consider faces of Wall core as Zone Boundaries (so we can get Zone Areas with Structures only.
4. There may be more useful ones...
