    Continue Wall Type in X5

    How do you set the default for this, or is it not possible? I bring up old plans all the time and have to extend the existing wall type. Instead of taking the time to configure what the default wall type is you can just continue what's there. I usually will turn the corner with the existing type. In 9.5 I had the default to do this automatically all the time. Is there a setting in X5 that I can set or do I have to click the button every time?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Select the wall you want to continue and drag by the diamond handle to create a new wall.

    Hey Kevin,

    Yeah, but you have to click the continue wall button, to get that little handle to show up. I want that to be my default. In 9.5 you could set it and forget it.

    See if you have "show same wall type handles" turned on in your preferences. I think these are turned on by default so I have no idea why these would be off for you.
