NEED BY WALL BACK

Recommended Posts

It just got switched to an invisible wall is all.  Maybe you accidentally deleted it at some point.

As far as I know, the program will never change a wall into an invisible wall automatically.  My guess is that you accidentally clicked on the Make Walls Invisible edit button.

Not entirely true.  If you delete an attic wall while Auto Rebuild Attic Walls is toggled on, the wall is automatically changed to an invisible wall and put onto the "Walls, Invisible" layer.  Delete it again and it changes back to a normal attic wall and put back onto the "Walls, Attic" layer.

I knew that I had seen that before.

I swear,  if there is anybody that knows as much as the Alaskan knows,  I would like to meet him.

 

 Thanks Michael for your input.

Apparently, the program switches the attic wall into an invisible wall to prevent it from getting rebuilt automatically.  I was not aware it did this but it makes more sense now that I think about it.  Attic walls will regenerate when there is no wall already there.  If the program allowed you to just delete it, it would keep magically coming back.

You can also shut off the automatic rebuild of attic walls in the general wall defaults.

Couldn't agree more. Alaskan is the man. Much respect.

Yep...seen it happen to me a hundred times, and always wish it would just delete on the 2nd erase rather than messing with auto-rebuild

Don’t think it could ever work properly that way.  Chief needs some kind of placeholder in order for Auto Rebuild to remain toggled on.

I just change them to invisible and turn that layer off. Works well and no need to fight the program - you will lose more times than you will win.

Yep true enough... but I'll probably create another layer just for those, because I usually have other invisible walls that I want to keep in their semi-visible state.

That's what I do as well.
