Hello!

We are working with the client wh constantly changes his mind. One of the things we repeatedly do is changing wall finishing thickness. When I change 20mm render to 10mm gap is created between the wall and the render finish so I have to align it back with the wall. I wonder if there is a way to make the wall finishing stick to the wall face. Any advice is much appreciated.

Do you mean pin it? It does not work. I found that it is possible to draw wall finishes while activating snap to the inner side. This option is available when in drawing mode. This way you can change the thickness of finishing and it is always stuck to the wall.

No, I mean lock - when you align something a padlock appears - click to lock it.  The method that you describe can also be used.  Also note that if you pick the walls with the location set to 'Finish face - interior' they should also move with the walls.

Did you do this finish as a seperate wall?  Why not include it in the main wall type?

Thanks for your responses. I will try the lock method too. 

Regarding the inclusion of the wall finish in the wall type - this is our office regulation. For some reason we are drawing fiishes as separate walls. I used to include finishes in the wall type durng uni years however.
