Attic Wall Auto rebuild does not turn off

Recommended Posts

I have an attic wall that runs between my two offices on the north end of the house.  When I color one in one office, the other office's wall gets color, also.  So I read the instructions and made sure that the main floor wall is broken and broke the attic wall.  I turned off the default walls > general checkbox for attic walls being rebuilt.  I closed the dialog box and reopened it and yet is was still unchecked.  But when I use either the eye dropper or a dialog box to let the two offices have different paint colors, the attic wall heals into one wall and takes the last color changed.  It is reproducible ad nauseam. Enclosed is my HD 2018 Pro file.

I see you stated Pro 2018, but you can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) 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 keeps others from having to hunt for it.

If you will place a saved camera in the plan, it makes it easier for others to locate the area in question.

It's also a good idea to keep the drawing square with the screen, at least as much of it as you can.

 

In your case, something like this.

Thank you Solver for your comments.  By the way, I can NOT see your program name or version. Your name, picture and location are visible as well as the large number of posts you have helped people.

I did not know I could save a camera in the plan.  I will do so next time.

The client likes north to point up.  So Northern Hemispheric of him. 

The bend in the house causes me pain every day.  But in this case, I do not suspect the bend is the problem with the attic auto rebuild.  If you turn off a function, it should not function.  How illogical phobic I am.

I still consider this case open.

Cheers, Kirk

Suggest reporting the inconsistency to tech support.

I thought tech support read this.  Live and learn.
