wall centerlines

Recommended Posts

Just upgraded from 9.5 to x12. Been using this program since the start. Working on my first design and have an issue:

I cannot snap to centerlines of interior walls and the dimensions skip over the centers as well. I have the centerline box checked for interior walls.??? Any quick help?

Look at the Locate Objects tab in Auto Exterior Dimension Defaults.  You've got your options there.

 

That'll locate interior walls to their centerlines, the ones that join exterior walls.  Manually drawn interior wall dimensions will not default to wall centers and will need to be edited.  Quickly done in a typical 3600 sf house plan.

I have this checked off as interior wall centers but the automatic dimensions still go to the start of the walls. If i try to drag the dimension to the center it skips to the other side.??? Frustrated already!

I have this checked off and it is still dimensioning to the start of the walls. It also doesn't allow me to drag the dimension to the center of the wall. It skips from one side to the other. They are 2x6 and 2x4 default partition walls with 1/2" sheetrock each side. ???

Got it. Thank you. I will read through your first message with proper instructions. I set it in the dimensions tab but not the default tab. Did it in both and now I'm off and running! Thank you again!
