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 Cleanup.
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.
