Unstyled wall attributes keep reverting

Recommended Posts

The Line weight of a Bearing Wall I that I have been using keeps reverting back to 0.5 after I change it to 0.35, and save the new setting.

I tried using the 'Making all attributes by class' option which makes no difference and the Classe attributes confirms a specified line weight of 0.35 in the Organisation window.


Any advice welcome.

You'll see to the far right of the plan that I have sent, where I have deleted a part of the 200mm wall and redrawn it after editing the wall attributes to make the line thicker.

However the line weight doesn't save, so when I come back to use this Wall type the line attributes have returned to their thinner weight.

I have attached the file...

@jcrock, I created a class called [Fat Line Class] and pointed the wall style (Bearing Wall 200mm) at it so it will use that attribute.  Is this what you wanted?

In this "simple" wall style that doesn't have components, you need to use the "Make All Attributes by Class" button as you've described but in the "Edit Wall Style" pane under the Insertion Options tab, you have to assign it TO A CLASS.  For more complex wall styles that have multiple components, the Class in the Edit Wall Style pane  (Insertion Options tab) becomes the CONTAINER CLASS and the attributes for the container class are assigned in the Wall Attributes pane (use the "Make All Attributes by Class" button.)  You can then assign different attributes to your various components in the Component Edit pane (I've attached a screen shot that shows a wall style with multiple components)


I've included your file with the adjustment
