Hi all, I have created a void sweep to cut the edge of my roof to hug my fascia correctly. I would like to edit this void sweep. Is there a quick way to easily locate these suckers? I know that all you need to do is hover over the void sweep and then click it to begin the editing process however, it is very rare that I am able to hover over the void sweep and have it highlight. It is a hit and miss affair. Mostly once I have created the void sweep I cannot highlight it to edit if I need to. cadjockey

Hi Mr Spot, That's what I thought however, this works for some and not for others. I do not think I have created the void sweeps any different from each other. Is there a setting I need to have on/off while I create these void sweeps so that later I am able to browse them? I note that while browsing the void weeps the 'make element editable' option is not available. cadjockey

i would maybe try making a small solid shape, very small, along with the void, so that you know where it would be in relation to the void, therefore making it easier to select. or, do that leftwards select thing where it selects everything within the selection box and then use the selection filter to select the void. i could be wrong, but that is what i would try.

When selecting voids that are cutting something, you need to however over the cut edge of the element the void is cutting to select them.

Hi Enran, I'll give that a try. Mr Spot, Yes that is correct. I am able to do this however, it very very random and mostly once I have created the void sweep I can no longer find it. No matter how much I run my cursor over the cut edge. It is very frustrating. cadjockey
