  1. Ian—

    Very helpful info……..especially regarding the lock turning orange. I’ve had lots of problems with this (not knowing about the color indicator).

    I wonder if you could elaborate on how layer extensions (or might not work) with stacked walls. Is the process the very same or are there slight variations?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    • Hi Mike,

      No access to individual Layers in Stacked Walls, even when the component wall in question has it’s layers unllocked. As soon as that Wall Type becomes encapsulated in a Stacked Wall ‘assembly’ you only get to control the overall base / top of the complete Stack.

      Many thanks,
      Ian

  2. One more question regarding layer extensions. Once the layers have been unlocked, must the extension be accomplished on a wall-by-wall basis; OR, is there a way to manage this globally for all instances within the view or project?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    • Hi Mike,

      The adjustment of the unlocked layers is per-wall, as the layer length is stored as an Instance (not Type) parameter.

      Best to set it up some other way (which we can explore in other videos) if you are looking (as I suspect) to pre-configure the layer lengths before you place the walls?

      Cheers,
      Ian
