Changing ceiling heights in all rooms on a floor at the same time.


Recommended Posts

Happy quarantine everybody!


I know it is there some where, but can't find how to change the ceiling heights for all the rooms on a floor at once.   Working on a project an the client removed a bearing wall on the first floor, which changed the second floor framing from 11 7/8" to 14".  This messed up the first floor ceiling height.  To correct this, I had to go into each room on the second floor and edit the ceiling height above absolute.  I am confident there is an easier way, but searched for 15min (I know short attention span) and couldn't find the answer.


Hope everyone is and stays healthy,

Make sure default settings are correct relative to your intention and then verify those settings in a single Room Specification dialog, then while that verified room is still selected, look for, in the "Edit Toolbar" an icon that has three connected orbs (tool tip says: "Match Properties"), then with the "Apply Properties" tool you "left-click" in any rooms that are not highlighted. The Match Properties dialog and apply properties tools will allow MANY different settings to be shared per floor.


There is also a "Reset to Defaults" command under the "File" menu that you can use once you have verified Default settings are correct for your purposes.

      I have tried to catch all the ceiling heights above to fix this, I need the first floor to be 10', client change their mind of course once entire plan is drawn. I am attaching plan file as well. Previously I have simply redrawn the entire plan to change the ceiling height. I dont have time this time. Super frustrating... i haven't found a tutorial that makes the fix. Not sure I'm asking the correct question.

      I am working on a living room/kitchen where I have added a cathedral ceiling and exposed beams.  I wanted to make the walls higher since the beams can't go above the wall height.  After I adjusted my walls to 12' the molding stayed at the default wall height.  How can I move the molding to match the new wall height?
