Both wall ends resize at the same time

Recommended Posts

When I attempt to edit the length of a wall, both ends resize at the same time. Why is this happening and how can I stop it? I have tried to edit preferences and put it back to default but it doesn't fix the problem.  Any ideas?

it sounds like you have the center locked instead of the start ( or end) in the Wall's DBX on the general tab , if this was set on the 1st wall drawn and you use the "same wall type" handle to draw the rest , they may have the same attribute set too.

Sorry DBX  is the common shortcut here on the Forums for DIALOG BOX   ie what pops up when you OPEN an item/object

In "Edit - Preferences - Edit - Behaviors" in Home Designer Pro 2015 (and older versions as well) there is a setting for "Edit Type", the ones listed there are: "Default (where it should always usually be selected), Alternate, Resize, Concentric (which includes a "Jump" input box to control how much something resizes concentrically) and "Fillet". Each of those settings and their specific purposes are fully described in your Reference Manual as to why one might use them temporarily.

 

If you changed any of them but especially "Concentric" could also directly cause the behavior you are seeing, check and see. Without knowing which software application you are using, it is a guessing game for us as to why you are getting unwanted behavior.
