When I create a room on the first floor, the model refreshes and shows the surrounding room below and/or above.
How do I prevent this from happening?
Please see below for example.
Ground Floor Is created (Height - 0m-3.6m)
When I move onto the First Floor, it shows the below partition and rooms after I create a room on the first floor. (Height - 3.6-7.2)
First I select "Show floor Only"
But after I create a room it shows the below rooms.
How can I stop this as I don't want to select "Show floor only" after I create a room every single time. I only want to see the floor I'm working on.
When I'm working on massive projects it becomes quite an annoyance as sometimes I can't tell the difference between the DWG/DXF and the floor below including the partitions.
I've changed display settings as well as creating my own to get around this however none of this works.
Any advise would be appreciated.
This is designed intentionally in this manner as when you add a room quite a lot happens in the background, as the software identifies any adjacent rooms and automatically changes the relevant surfaces accordingly, to create the correct heat transfer properties. What you are seeing is the software cycling through all the rooms in question and displaying the ones that have changed. However if you wish I can request this to be disabled by our dev team.

Yes, can you please offer an option to disable this feature.
No problem at all, I have requested that this be assessed. Many thanks for the feedback.
Did this feature ever get implemented? If so could you point me in the direction of disabling it in the software?
