V2018 - walls revert to defaults in copy/paste

Recommended Posts

Just downloaded version 2018.  When I create a wall and specify a non-default exterior and then copy/paste that wall, the exterior reverts to the default surface.  I also tried to change the default exterior surface in the Default settings menu but many options from the library (such as using exterrior siding) do not appear in the Default setting menu.  I am trying to have a light grey ship-lap exterior.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

I have tried to use the available resources but was unable to generate a userful hit.  I am familiar with earlier versions of the program.

Suite has many limitations. See if this recent thread helps.

Great answer.  Not.  Many limitations?  This is simply bad programming - copy/paste that does not copy/paste is a pretty rudimentary failure in any piece of software.

What are you trying to do? Copy/paste works as expected here.

If I set a wall segment with exterior specified as siding and then copy that wall segment and paste it, the pasted segment reverts to default exterior.

In my Suite 2016, i drew a default exterior wall. Changed the siding material to aluminum siding.

 

I copied that wall and pasted it, and it's the same.

Well, I have had inconsistent results myself.  I have gone through and manually specified all walls in my model, so please just chalk this up to a user experience - I don't need fuirther help here.  Thanks.
