    Help with Footing on Porches and Patios

    Not sure about your funky footing connection but you specify your footing in the wall DBX (X11)

    Rooms layer difficulty

    @solver Thanks Eric, it is inexplicably working now. I'll post the plan if it happens again.

    Rooms layer difficulty

    I am trying to shut off the Rooms layer in my section view but it doesn't appear to be working. I was able to turn it off earlier today but suspect I hit another setting somewhere that changed it. Is there another setting that I should be looking at? FYI this plan is in X11 not X12.

    Check the "Cabinet Specialty Storage" bonus catalog, there are X boxes in there.

    3 Way Switch Between Floors - Stairs

    I guess I was assuming you already had a 3-way drawn at the bottom of the stairs. You will need two 3-ways, one at the bottom and one at the top, label the one at the top as 3 upstairs, then just draw your electrical connection to the switch, which is actually on the first floor. The only downside is if it shows up in a 3D view, but you can always put it on another layer and turn it off.

    3 Way Switch Between Floors - Stairs

    Another option is to place a switch in the stairwell and re-label it as "3 Upstairs" which allows use of the electrical connection tool.
  9. @rgardner, @Alaskan_Son Ryan or Michael, can you give me a bit more detail on what you mean by using a filled polyline? I send my elevations as plot lines and dread making changes that override any editing work I have done. I would welcome more convenient ways to edit.
  10. @joey_martin thanks for this, I will definitely try on my next elevations.
  11. @joey_martin seems like a very simple method but isn't it somewhat tough and tedious to get the lines you want lighter selected when they are right next to lines you want to maintain as darker? Do you Marquis Select most of them and then Shift Select individually? Just curious about your method, would love to highlight this way as long as it isn't too much of a time suck.

    Dormers AND Shed Roof help

    Your back roof plane was sitting on the first floor and cutting the second floor wall off. I also unchecked the invisible button.

    Dormers AND Shed Roof help

    I locked the ridge height on the back roof plane and changed it to a 3 pitch, not sure if the pitch or your ceiling height is correct but this is the result.
