Where did my floor go?


Recommended Posts

So I designed a 2-story plan with a basement (on the foundation level).  I got the basement floor plan, 1st floor, 2nd floor and roof completed.  Then started working on detailing the inside of the house, adding cabinets, doors and windows.  I started on the 2nd floor and everything was fine.  When I went to the 1st floor and would add cabinets, doors, windows they would end up in the basement like there's no floor between the basement and 1st floor.  I can drag them up in 3D views to make it look sorta right but cannot figure out what went wrong or how to fix it.  Attaching a screenshot of what it looks like.  I have dragged the cabinets and windows up.  Also attaching the full plan file.

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.

Carefully and methodically make sure your "Floor Defaults: are properly set per floor then rebuild the foundation as Eric suggested. The carefully and methodically study your Reference Manual to make sure you fully understand the relationship between your "Edit - Default Settings" and the results you then get.
