  1. The 'Pattern' tad allows you to select a pattern which is different from the pattern in your material. For example, if your material is a standard grid and you would like it as a herringbone, select that in the 'Pattern' tab and then click' 'Keep Pattern/Texture in Sync'.
  2. Sounds like you need to offset the material a bit so you don't get a line in the middle of your tile. To correct this, use the 'Adjust Material Definition' tool (the rainbow tool). In the 'Texture' tab, use the 'Offset and Angle' section to move the material on the X or Y axis (click on the 'help' button at the bottom for a more detailed explanation of how to do this. You should also take a look at this article: https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-01006/customizing-a-library-material.html

  21. For your block wall, right click the symbol and select 'Transform/Replicate Object'. Once you are in the DBX, you can specify how many degrees to rotate the wall. For your slabs, you can build them from poly lines to your desired shape and then convert to a slab or solid.
