VW novice - selecting control line mode for wall thickness

Recommended Posts

Hello,

When adjusting a wall thickness (after the wall has been inserted), I've been trying to figure out how to adjust the control line mode so it's either left or right (as you can when creating the wall in the first place). I'm sure there must be a way but I can't find it - can anyone help?

Thanks!

With the wall selected, you can choose Style from the Object Info Palette, then select "Replace." If you replace the wall with the same style, youll see the control line options on the bottom for left, center, right. Whatever you select as the control line on the right side of the dialog box will then remap to the selected option on the left side of the dialog box.

That control line mode will be ignored for changing thickness of Unstyled Walls.

It will always change from the middle.

The control line mode does only apply for creating those unstyled Walls.

Not that I think that is cool, but that's the way it works.

It will work with Wall Styles applied as you expect.

Yeah you have to use Replace, not just alter the thickness. Pretty much any time you want to go back and broadly modify walls though you should be using Wall Styles.
