Is there some way to show this other than drawing it on the elevation in annotation mode?
  4. I've got a 4' tall window in a stairwell that straddles two floors. It's on the lower floor layer so in the viewport elevation the wall from the floor above shows up in it. I guess this is an example where setting up stories might have worked better but I haven't been using stories. Is there a way to deal with this?
  5. When I double click on the elevation viewport to annotate it, it becomes fractured into lines what am I doing wrong?
  6. I changed wall to unstyled with gray fill. Made viewport. And the grey fill did not show. I went back to floor layer and the gray fill was gone. when I check the wall component the fill still shows as grey. What setting got undone?
