wall "healing/separating"
Read 2525 times

Can anyone point me to an explanation of the logic for walls? When I have two existing walls that I want to tie together or separate by dragging the end of the wall to the desired spot, sometimes it works and sometimes  it doesn't. When it doesn't work, the wall I'm moving simply snaps back to its original location. I've experienced this  in TurboCAD Deluxe 15 and trial version of TurboCAD Pro 16. Doors also react in seemingly unpredictable ways. I've read the online help, and it sheds no light. Can someone point  me to a resource or explain what I'm missing?

Select the connected walls, then choose "Drop Link" from the Local Menu. Then use the Edit Tool to move the end of the wall. I usually hold the Shift key and select the node, then Tab to the fields that need to be changed.

Thanks, John. That's a great help. You've helped me before.

Any clues on why doors don't behave as I would expect? I can never predict how a door will get inserted.

re: I can never predict how a door will get inserted.

Door direction depends on how the Wall was drawn.

  • A wall drawn south-2-north, the door opens east
  • a wall drawn north-2-south, the door opens west
  • a wall drawn east-2-west, the door opens north
  • a wall drawn west-2-east, the door opens south

Is that confusing enough. ;-)

Wow! Where is the logic in that? I'll play with it to see if I can make it useful.

Thanks again for your help.
