v 2009  I am working on several different design options for a roof on a residential project.  Do I need to make the walls part of the design option to make them attach to the roof in the option or can I leave them alone?  What has worked for you when doing design options?

thank you,

AAron

If you want to modify the element at all it has to be in the design option.  Walls will not attach to roofs if they are not in the design option with the roof. Hope that helps

You can copy and paste those walls into the required design option easily enough.

My problem is I cannot change my windows because they are in the walls.  So if I want to change a window I need to do it for each option.  I cannot do it in my base.  My windows were not part of the design option, I thought.  Just the walls.

If you copy the walls into a new design option the windows will be copied with the walls.

What you said is correct, you cannot change doors, walls, add or remove wall (etc) bound components and things like wall joins etc unless they are in the same option set. The good news is that usually all this is happening early on in design and you can plan for it by making copies and making the appropriate changes. It is a little more difficult to change an existing drawing.

Hope this helps.
