    Disappearing Walls (also slabs sometimes)

    I have also noticed that the wall object sometimes disappears after inserting the slab through the inner boundary mode. The wall appears in 2D but not in 3D. I am only able to select it in 2D. When I move it in 2D or replace the wall style it shows up in 3D. I am using VW 2019 SP4 in Mac OS 10.14.6

  3. Sometimes, while working in design layer the connect between the story levels and design layers removes automatically and I can’t find when this change is happening and how is this happening. I have encountered it two times, first I thought I would have missed something and when the same happens again I can’t find when and why this is happing, but this makes things strange. I need to manually connect all the design layers once again to its story level. Have you ever experienced this?
