Re: Undo planning view

you can make a new view and have all the sections transfer to that if you want, that way the rest of your sections wont break. i agree the function is cool, we use it to make our ceiling plans. But apart from what i said earlier i don't see a way to undo it.

Re: Undo planning view

Use the modify element function and click on your view, the view modification window will open. Under "camera" you can select the view you want. I'm guessing yours will be on top view, unfold the pull-down menu where you can select the view and click top again. Then click OK. I just tested...

hi quazoosl, For me there are a few "rules" for TSW modeling: -try to keep the number of operations on every part as low as possible. For example, don't extend a constraint block but rather alter the shift on a side. This gives you a model that is less likely to cause errors or long loadin...

Re: Change the default index style?

i think you can change it in the topzdft.cfg as the colour fond and text height are also determined there. however, what code you should use to get a balloon is beyond me
