Odd Icon & Traced Wall Line

Recommended Posts

I've been using CA for many years now and recently I started getting two odd items from Chief, that I don't recall seeing before.  When I delete a wall, or move it, I get a dotted line underneath where the wall used to be and then get a little "house" icon on my cursor.  I've attached a screen shot of it.  This only occurs 50% of the time and the majority of those times it will disappear if I close the software and reopen.


Does anybody know what these items are indicating?

It is there to tell you that you need to Build Walls/Floors/Ceilings.

Go to 3D View Defaults and toggle on Auto Build Walls/Floors/Ceilings - this should normally be left on.

Or go to do it manually go to Build>Floor>Build Walls/Floors/Ceilings.

Any thoughts on the dotted line?


Sounds like you are seeing a demo layer you have forgotten you added  (CAD) or you are referencing the As Built Plan?
