Is There a Way To Reverse Layers in the Roof Structure DBX?

Recommended Posts

Seems crazy I don't know the answer to this but is there a way to add layers 'under' roof structures? Like a layer of underlayment 'under' the roof? All the inserted layers end up on top of the current layer. I can add a layer on top of the roof structure, which will end up under the roofing but am curious if there's a way to add a layer 'under' and existing layer somehow?

Sure you can just move the arrow down Larry. Sorry you want underlayment between the layers not under or over. That is a bug. You have to add on top or below then rearrange your thicknesses and materials.

Ignore all that if your DBX looks the same as mine select layer 2 and click insert.

Ok here is my conclusion:

 

select layer 1 and then insert to add above

select layer 2 and then insert to add to middle

select layer 1 and move layer arrow down to add to bottom (not in Help File)

I 'think' I get that Chop, thanks for the help. If you add the layers just right and then delete the right layer you can get the effect of a simple 'move up' or 'move down' command. I sometimes just feel so stupid when I use Chief. Sigh.

Your not the only one. Sometimes you just need to take a deep breath and think how would someone do this backwards.

I just noticed that this seems to have come up again in another thread on the forum, so hoping this helps to clarify the current situation.

Nice Video Chop, and nice microphone too. Was wondering, have you found a way add a layer below the first data box with the 9 1/4" as the only box? Say you start with the 9 1/4" lumber, can you add a box below that?

 

Would really love to have a simple ordering dbx to add to the flexibility of a mis-ordered layer.

Yes, the same theory holds true for that situation.  Make sure that the 9 1/4" box is not highlighted and click once below the layer indicator arrow on the layer illustration.

 

And yes it would be nice to be able to reorganize a multi layer setup but just to be able to build it the way you want should help.
