Constrain Collinear by wall component

Question

Posted (edited)

It looks like collinear (colinear?) constraints only act on the centerline of wall objects. Given that one of Vectorworks' weak points, IMHO, is the difficulty in keeping multi-story building envelopes aligned – who here hasn't spent way too much time chasing down those horizontal lines between walls that somehow just won't stack perfectly? – it would be great to be able to apply the collinear constraint to walls based on specific wall components, rather than just the wall centerline. If all exterior wall types were exactly the same this wouldn't be an issue, but the fact is that almost every project has at least a foundation wall type and an above-grade wall type, if not more, and these are usually different thicknesses. This feature would allow you to make sure that, for example, the exterior face of the concrete foundation wall would always align with the face of stud above...
