Issue Snapping to Surface Layer at End of Wall

Recommended Posts

Since upgrading to CA Interiors x11, I can't do a point-to-point snap to the surface layer at the end of a wall. It automatically snaps a half inch in to the end of the framing layer. The same thing happens if I try to bump and object (like a panel) against the end of a wall; it passes through the surface layer (1/2" drywall) to the framing layer.

 

I've set my defaults to show only the surface layer in my plan, I've set dimensions to locate on the surface of wall, set the wall defaults to resize about outer surface, and nothing has worked. Is this a bug in the new version or is there a default/preference I'm missing?

It seems to be when you're in the Kitchen & Bath set. I switched the Active Layer Set in your plan to K&B and had the same issue again. I'm a specifically kitchen designer, so I live in the K&B set.

I found the issue. If the wall is not in a "room," the snap doesn't go to the surface of the wall. The same is true in your test plan. If you draw a wall outside of the room and try to snap to it, it will be 1/2" from the tip of the wall.

 

I often only draw the walls I need in a kitchen plan (it's faster and tends to look cleaner for my clients).

Best practice is to create a room. Always the first thing I do as shown in my test plan.

 

You can place walls on a specific layer and turn off its display if you don't want to see them.

Noted. This hasn't been an issue in previous versions of CA Interiors (X8-X10), so it's a habit I've gotten into.

 

Thanks for your help on this.
