Chairs d isappear

Recommended Posts

In a council chamber on my plan I created two areas of public galleries by using the stairs tool i.e. making them wide, with wide treads and10mm risers - the latter to give those sitting behind the first row which is at floor level - a measure of elevation from which to view the goings on of the council.

 

I can place seating on the floor level, as you will see from the attachment, but when I try to place rows of seating on what is effectively the tread of the staircase it will be visible until such time as I click on something else and then it disappears.  If I click on the space where it used to be it appears again but then vanishes when I move away.  I have tried making adjustmentssing the object dialogue "height above floor" setting but it makes no difference.

 

My thoughts were that using the stair tool would be far easier and quicker than fiddling about with soffits but it seems as if said thoughts were totally wrong.

 

Is there some way that I can get the chairs to stay where I want them?

Stair objects have a solid white "fill" which will tend to obscure other objects in plan view. Open each stair object and remove the "fill" making them "transparent" and that should solve your visual plan view problem.

did you uncheck the auto adjust height box on the chairs ? unchecking that allows me to set a chair any height I want off the floor .... not sure if your stairs are somehow effecting the height though? M.

Thank you.  I will play with this issue once I have overcome the current new one.

Did what David suggested.  It looked like a junk furniture store when all my attempts to place chairs were uncovered.  :blink:
