Wall Reference Line

Each Wall has a reference line and a direction. The Wall reference line is visible on the Floor Plan if you switch on:
View > On-Screen View Options > Walls & Beams Reference Lines
Note: If the chosen composite structure has no core, then the core-related Reference Line choices are grayed out.
The reference line of a Profile (complex) wall depends on the user origin defined in Profile Manager/Editor.
Reference Line Offset: If using an “outside” or “inside” reference line, enter a positive offset to move the reference line toward the center (or center of core) of the Wall. A negative offset will move the reference line away from the center (or core center). (No offset is available if the reference line is in the center.)
Note: In contrast, to move the reference line while retaining the Wall’s position intact, and/or mirror the openings, use the Modify Wall Reference Line command.
Note: To move the reference line while retaining the Wall’s position intact, and/or mirror the openings, use the Modify Wall Reference Line command.
The direction of the Wall, indicated by the arrow on the reference line, is defined by the order in which you define the wall’s endpoints.
Note: The directions of curved Walls and polygon Walls are fixed and cannot be reversed.
Note: With the commands at Edit > Reference Line and Plane, you can modify the Reference Line position and the direction of selected Wall type elements.
