Filling walls

Recommended Posts

I would like to fill walls in plan view that were drawn without hatches or fills. I can't seem to edit them. I can change the wall style but it only affects new walls.

Do I have to re-create the walls ?

Changing the wall style should always change the existing ones. Are you sure you're changing the correct style? Are the walls really styled, check in the OIP what style they are?

I initially tried to modify via wall preferences option in wall tools.

There are two places to edit fill; 'edit wall attributes', and under components, click on wood framing then the 'edit' button becomes available and 'wall component attributes' dialog opens. I edited in both places. This morning I navigated to this wall style via the resource browser and was able to make the edit and it showed up in drawing the way I expected.

Thanks, but I don't understand why setting the fill in the 'wall attributes' didn't seem to do anything, but 'wall component attributes' did.

Anyway, thanks again.

In 2014 I could edit wall attributes in the wall style to fill by class.

not no more in2015...

e.g.: The workflow is to draw all interior walls the same 2x4 with 1/2" gyp. Some are classed to walls-existing, some to walls-demolition, some to walls-new.

Walls-demo attributes are no fill and dashed outline, wall-new are hatch filled.

I can make a wall demo or existing by changing its class, and it will show accordingly.

Has anyone seen how to do that in 2015?
