How to add additional wall types in the Walls Button?

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway to add to the one exterior wall type and one interior wall type in the wall drop-down menu?   Problem:  For renovation projects I have need to show various types of interior walls, e.g., dashed interior walls for demolition, fire-rated interior walls, etc.   Is there a better workaround other to using the first interior wall type everywhere, then changing the default to 2nd type interior wall, and then cutting and pasting where the 2nd wall type should be?  Thanks for any help.  (HD Architectural 2020)

I see you mentioned Architectural 2020 ...

 

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

No.

I'd draw with the default wall types assuming they will be the majority. Then multi select the walls that need to change, open and change to the new wall type.

 

With Chief, you can add wall types to the library and then pick and begin drawing.
