Currently using LT version 2014

Relatively new user and struggling with temporary dimensions.

When i draw a corner wall junction the temporary dimenions pop up but snap to the centreline of the wall.

It will not allow me to click on the blue grips to toggle through (sometimes it allows me to do this and soemtimes it doesnt!).

I have also changed the settings for temp dimensions under additonal settings, i have selected faces rather the centrelines but it makes no difference.

What am i doing wrong?

Its weird the way the walls join at the corners - see picture attached, the blue line contiunes around the corner as shown and the other wall stops short of the corner, is this normal?

hi Pikey500,


I believe the temporary dimensions are controlled by the "Location Line", so if you want to drove the external wall using say a internal dimension then jet it to "Finish Face: Interior". Have a play around ith these feature to find the one that suits you.


In terms of the wall join, I assume its normal as it happens on my Revit 2014 as well. It is likely that its illistrated this way to prevent over laps which could confuse schedules of say wall area. But I'm guessing in that regard and bow to someone who knows more on the subject.


In terms of connections there is a button called "Wall Joins" within the Geometry segment of the Modify| Walls. This will let you cycle though alternative connections. 


Hope that helps.

Wall joins typically default to butt which is what you have and these will show the same in view as if they were miter.


Learn about wall layer priority as that controls how complex walls will join.  You can read about this in the HELP.
