Slab Reference Plane

See Use Cases, below.
Note: To modify the Slab reference plane while keeping the Slab position unchanged, use the Modify Slab Reference Plane command.
A basic Slab has two possible reference planes: either the top or the bottom plane.
A composite Slab has four possible reference planes: the top or the bottom of the Slab core, or the top or bottom of the Slab.
Note: If the chosen composite structure has no core, then the core-related reference plane choices are grayed out.
Use this function (Edit > Reshape > Adjust Elements to Slabs) to easily adjust elements (Walls, Columns or horizontal Beams) to specific levels of one or more Slabs that are located above and/or below them.
This command (at Edit > Reference Line and Plane > Modify Slab Reference Plane) enables you to modify the Slab reference plane of one or more selected Slabs, while keeping the Slab position unchanged.
Note: If the selection includes one or more basic Slabs, then choosing the “Core Top” option here will result in a “Top” reference plane for these basic Slabs.
