    Wall styles

    @SadeHi, see attached. Note the setup of the wall, all is by class and components. Get this right and you can change walls easily. Always draw walls clockwise so you know which is the right side or left so when adding textures all will work. HTH Also have a look at this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkK32tglmIE Wall with Insulation.vwx Wall with Insulation v2016.vwx

    Glass Railing Transparency in "Hidden Line" render VP

    @khumennyHi, It doesn't appear to be able to adjust the transparency in the viewport. What i have done is use a mask in the annotations layer and adjusted the transparency of the mask. HTH Handrail.vwx

    Glass Railing Transparency in "Hidden Line" render VP

    @khandschuhHI, you can control it in the Viewport by making the glass class no fill. See attached. HTH Glass Handrail.vwx

    3D Roof not re-positioning

    Hi, I am finding that if i move a 3D roof for some reason and then do an undo (Ctl_Z) the roof often does not move back. Everything else is undone but the roof remains in the moved location and has to be manually moved back. When this happens its also a sign that the program will crash very soon so i close without saving (As is save all the time) and all is good again until the next time. Any one else experiencing this??

    How do I Auto-Rotate text in 3d view VW 2019?

    @Olivier Jauniaux Hi, you can convert the text to polygons and extrude it then rotate as needed . Or create an image prop from a text block say use photoshop and create a jpg and make a transparent mask. It will rotate toward you if you wish, Good Luck.

    Why does my section viewport render like this?

    @jtempleton Hi not at computer but on Viewport OIP turn off view planer objects, this look like some 2d polygons have solid fills. HTH

    Roof Components in Elevation

    Yes i thought it would work the same as walls but no. I made a styled roof and turned off the components and the whole roof disappeared, unlike wall. you turn of components and the wall will still be there as a solid wall. Sorry to mislead you ūüôā

    Roof Components in Elevation

    If your roof is by components you should be able to turn off that class in the viewports. like walls put the riff on a container class called 3D Roof New and the other components in their separate classes. Then when you turn off all the component classes you only have the container class showing. hgh

    Section Tags

    In the attached file change the class for section marker Class to any colour it changes. Try to get it to be class by none. I can make it white by using white but will not change to None, it will stay previous colour. Are you finding the same??. Section Markers.vwx

    Roofs now not visible

    Check distance from internal origin, not user origin, and make sure they are close. Especially in any credit files like surveys. Turn all classes on and select all. Make sure nothing is too far away. this is usually the problem.
