    Site Modelling

    Try going to Site Model Settings in the OIP. In the 3d Display dialog uncheck Show Skirt.
  2. FWIW, today one can fit to objects on the same layer.
  3. Perhaps your rail and style widths need specifying. Go to Settings in the OIP and in the Leaf dialog, size the appropriate members.

    Window trim visibility

    Christiaan. That did it! Thanks a lot. Sheesh. You'd think it would be simpler than this.

    Window trim visibility

    Thanks Pat but no, the active class is None. I should add that in Plan it will disappear when classed off. In Top Plan, it remains visible. Maybe something to do with wireframe vs OpenGL? And yes the trim does disappear in 3D. And I can't class them off in viewports set to top plan
  6. So I have my window in wall with it's trim set to on and placed in a class via the settings dialog. I want it to show in elevation but not in plan. I can have it show or hide in elevation but turning the class to invisible has no effect in top plan. The trim still shows. How can I get the trim to disappear in top plan? thanks bc
  7. I just now opened it in 2019 and the condition persists. I subscribe to 2020 but haven't even installed it yet (unimpressive) so I am not able to see if it persists. I suspect it does. I wish it didn't.
  8. ArtV, the top shot shows Design Layer A with the bathroom in the center with the sink counter and walls etc solid in top plan view the bottom shot is a viewport of the Design Layer A on a different design layer. In that viewport, the Design Layer A visibility is set to grey. I don't want the counter top and walls to be wireframe.
  9. I wish there was the option to show greyed layers as transparent (status quo) or to show them as in top plan , where solid objects such as floors/walls etc appear solid. I believe the latter should be the default.
  10. Thanks, The layer that is greyed is a layer set to top plan. Nothing viewed in 3D. There are 3D objects but they should look like they otherwise do in top plan only greyed. Guess I'll wish list it.
  11. Why is it that my greyed layers show transparent? Walls, floors,extrudes do not look like they do in ungreyed regular plan view. They show as wireframe. I want that, when the layer is greyed, it looks like it usually does only greyed. Not transparent. Is there some setting I'm missing or do I need to wishlist this?
  12. THANKS A LOT ANDY. That should do it! Didn't think that they wouldn't be placed on their design layers.....
