walls not staying joined

Recommended Posts

Using VW 10: whenever I copy a floor plan- the walls of the copied and orginal plan are no longer joined together, but disconnected- I have to go back and join them together- every time I make copy- any one know what the problem might be-is there some preference or button I need to push?

Are you selecting walls and copying them to the same document, different layer or in another drawing?

I also have problems keeping walls connected. I like to use the polygon reshape tool to reshape plans. I have done it this way since version 9 but now I have to rejoin the walls when I do this. I am using VW 10.5 on a windows machine

I figured out my problem- I believe it is related to the VW 10- enable connected walls mode- I used to put a marquee around a group of walls- duplicate and move into place- apparently this is no longer an option-

one person told me to put a marquee around the walls and then use duplicate array- seems a little more cumbersome- but I'm getting used to that-

does anyone know of a better way- and could the connected walls mode feature be disabled in the next version? please?

It can actually be disabled in this version. Go to Vector Works Preferences -> Edit menu and unclick "Auto Join Walls".

thanks for the info- that solved my problem- but does it make sense to have to turn off the auto join preference to keep your walls joined?
