How to Add 3'9" in the middle of all 4 stories

Recommended Posts

The client wants to add 3'9" to the overall length of a 4-story structure.  I don't have a roof to worry about, but what's the most effective way to do this?  I tried Edit Area (All Floors) but it's only moving the floor I'm on.  VX7.

 

Thank you!

Edit Area (All Floors) should work, if it is not attach the plan or contact customer support.

Thanks for letting me know I was on the right track!  I surely would not move all floors, but I did get each floor stretched independently and clean up appears to be manageable.  I would be entitled to assistance via Chief since I don't maintain SSA, isn't that right?

You find a stretch zone (line) on your plan, and run edit area (all floors)  - draw the rectangle over the area you intend to move; now the cursor will stretch or contract the structure . Use Edit>Default Settings>Plan > Arrow Key scroll distance to set the distance you want to expand or contract. That way one key press is enough.
