Small things in X6


Recommended Posts

Have just had a project in which I'm doing the 3D framing in X6 for the first time, and noticed a few things that have changed and thinking I'd like it back to the way it used to be....


When I double-click the Joist tool, the Build Framing dbx comes up, but no matter what floor I'm viewing, this dbx shows up with the Foundation options appearing. It used to be that opening the dbx on 2nd floor would automatically appear on the 2nd floor options for building framing.


Also, when I open the Build Framing dbx (double click the Joist tool) and do some auto framing, (having previously drawn some bearing lines or joist direction lines), the General Framing icon (just to the left of the Joist tool) changes to the Build Framing icon, and I can't go back to the Bearing Lines or Joist Direction Lines without clicking the small arrow, and another icon, etc.

      I have an old plan and been saving it from X2-X6. When I open it in X9 the walls can not be opened or adjusted. It seems that everything else can be opened. The walls seem to be poly lines. I never opened it and saved it in X7 or X8.
      Any suggestion on opening it so it can be worked on?
