  1. Hi any clued on the floor set up, how do i get the floor to lay on top as opposed to it being like on the wall?

    Hope you had a good weekend.



    i attached a screen shot, it should be herringbone, but its just lines argh

  2. Sorry.....Bob, I have another VW question, I have a floor in this room, where I applied the wall finish (successfully, thanks to you!) however I have made the floor approx 200mm depth, but instead of the finish going onto the floor its going onto the side, do you know how I can change this, I have tried the attribute mapping. i can't seem to change the direction to lie on the floor, any tips?



  3. its pretty weird here as all restaurants are closed and stores. yes on line is available, but its tricky when you realise there is something you need or want to get a birthday present..... but hopefully if we all stay in we can avoid contaminating each other an the virus will dissipate... until there is vaccine or ... well or whatever, its a strange feeling, the lack of global travel and the pressure that our economies are under, I feel for small businesses, plus a huge project of mine has been out on hold until we don't know when, I hope on the other side we will find new joy in small pleasures, like liberty. We can pretty much go where we want though there is little to be getting to.... out walking running cycling, but it would probably not be a good idea to drive 50 miles ... Im in Surrey, very few cases, we are pretty protected here. 


    I may have more questions... Sorry!

    Enjoy your weekend, weather good?

    its cheering up here, so looks like barbecue weather on Sunday.
