  • Moving Connected Walls

    PVA - Jim

    The 2D Selection and 3D Selection tools have an additional mode, Enable Connected Walls, in Vectorworks Architect. This mode automatically maintains the connection between the wall being moved and adjoining walls. The involved wall angles remain constrained throughout the move. While dragging a wall, precise offset distances can be entered in the Offset field of the Tool bar. Enable Connected Walls mode does not apply to Y-joined walls or round walls.            

    To move a wall while maintaining its connection to adjacent walls:    

    1.   Click the 2D Selection or 3D Selection tool from the Basic palette.    

    2.   Select Enable Connected Walls from the Tool bar.

    3.   Click on the desired wall and drag it to a new location; the walls stay connected during the move. 

    When moving a wall connected between two other walls, the wall being moved is resized to maintain the connection. A T- or L-joined wall, when moved beyond the end of the connected wall, disconnects the walls.   End-to-end walls joined as an L-join move together as a single wall. For corner joined walls, all involved walls are resized to maintain the connection. A wall cannot be moved in such a way that its length equals zero.  End-to-end walls joined as an L-join move together as a single wall.
