Hi, Is there a way of changing the default wall connection (at placement time) as in the attached screen capture? I would like the default to be L connection.
Bentley, can you please help to answer this question?
In the Place Wall toolbox tick the Auto Connect option. This will mitre walls of the same type.
You also have the option to Close where your wall will "rubber band" until you place the last point.
I know the walls will mitre using L bisector, I want them to mitre using L parallel by default....is this possible?
Sorry, I appear to have misunderstood.
So you would like the default to be as shown in your screenshot, not to mitre?
Yes, we would like the default connection to be as in my screen capture (i.e. L Parallel)
Further to this question, is there anywhere that we can set the default join option for compound wall components?
ie, when i join a compound wall, the structure layer joins with a butted L, the furring and finish layers join with a mitred joint etc. I would like to be able to change this so that, for example, my furring layers connect with a butted L joint also, not a mitred joint.
Hi Marc, Any news on this query?
"Yes, we would like the default connection to be as in my screen capture (i.e. L Parallel)"
I wasn't able to find any reference to setting a default connection type during placement. Can you file a Service Request with support to have a new Enhancement logged? Unless of course anyone is aware of some means to do this...
And while they're at it, make top/bottom as well as sides of a LinearForm make the connection as selected - incl e.g. top of one to side of another. Don't say that wd invalidate LinearForm geometry - it's poss to achieve that effect by other longwinded route, and both Forms still report as LinearForm.
But I suppose that's another story.
Now - Now remember - we only live in a square world, in our little square boxes at our little square desks.

Nothing new on this topic I guess? I would still like to see the feature!
If you're referring to the OP where Hany asked how to default to a Parallel connection instead of Bisector, no, nothing has changed there. I also wasn't able to find an Enhancement that requests this either, so it's possible the SR was never filed.
