Wall joins change after flipping plan

Recommended Posts

With some time on my hands I'm moving from VW2019 to VW2020.  It has been a mixed experience.  The first image attached is a floor plan I'm working on.  The second image is the same floor plan flipped horizontally.  And now all the horizontal walls have broken their joins and extended the depth of the wall they were attached to,.  Both plans are in the same file, I duplicated the layer so I would have an original and a flipped layer.  I drew a marquee around the plan, then Modify > Rotate > Flip Horizontal.  And then the result you see in the second image.  Any explanations / guidance would be appreciated.  It only takes a few minutes to repair the walls  . . . . . but I shouldn't have too.  And now I'm calling it a day and going for a beer.

It's probably easier and better practice to flip the plan by flipping the sheet layer viewport, assuming the mirrored unit is identical.  You can use flipped viewports to assemble a 3d model if that's needed.

Also instead of flipping 180 maybe mirroring would give better results? Mirror tool lives in the basic tool palette.

I second the Flipped Viewport instead, assuming as said that the flips are identical.
