Why don't my short walls clean up properly?
By default, walls will automatically join other nearby walls when you Cleanup. This may cause very short walls
to disappear. A Wall Join Tolerance setting in the Dimension and Extension Options controls this wall Cleanup
feature. By default, when you Cleanup, each wall will search out a diameter of 6 inches from its end point and join
with other walls. If you draw a wall shorter than 6 inches, however, SoftPlan will remove that wall during
To enable you to Cleanup these walls properly, you have the option to control this tolerance setting. Select File »
System/Drawing Options » Dimension Options. For the 6-inch wall example, you can reduce the item Wall Join
Tolerance to less than 6 inches. Note that by reducing this value you will need to draw walls more accurately to
ensure proper Cleanup.
An individual wall can be edited before being positioned or adjusted into place. Edit the wall and in the Wall
Joins button, reduce the Wall Join tolerance of the required ends where the intersection will be formed at less
than 6 inches. Then Move into place, or Adjust Item. If done correctly, when a Cleanup is performed it should not
remove the short wall.
