Wall tool -> wall styles

Question

When I double click the wall tool, I get a dialog box allowing me to set up a wall. It would be very helpful if within that box, I had the option to select one of the preset wall styles. If wall styles are not available in plain VW, that option could be grayed out. The wall type tool only allows me to draw the currently selected wall style, but to change styles I have to go through another procedure. This interface can be simplified and made much more efficient and accessible.

VWA 10.0.1

In my version ( Europe, Belgium, Dutch 9.53 ) I have that tool incorporated with the Architecture module.

It means that I have a palet with 20 different types of walls, when I push one of the icon it gives me the wall I wanted to draw.( I can also change them as many times as I like to do, the are not locked )

Try to this script below ( maybe you should change the units from cm to inches ) but it works.

Procedure CustTool;

VAR

Name:STRING;

Result:BOOLEAN;

BEGIN

PushAttrs;

ClearCavities;

PenSize(14);

PenPat(2);

AddCavity(TRUE, -7cm, -17cm, 24);

PenSize(14);

PenPat(2);

AddCavity(TRUE, -3cm, -7cm, 1);

PenSize(14);

PenPat(2);

AddCavity(TRUE, 7cm, -3cm, 71);

DoubLines(34cm);

PenSize(14);

PenPat(2);

SetZVals(0cm, 250cm);

FillFore(255);

FillBack(0);

FillPat(5);

PenFore(255);

PenBack(0);

PenPat(2);

PenSize(14);

PenPat(2);

CallTool(-208);

PopAttrs;

END;

Run(CustTool);

Good luck !

Yes, I am aware of the palette. What I would like is to be able to more easily apply a wall type from that palette.
