Some of you may already know this workaround as it does go back a few years but it’s something that I have just stumbled upon which would of saved me a lot of time on previous projects.
- Having groundhog day checking and double checking your slab setting out?
- Wondering why one edge of the slab appears to of shifted whilst the other side remains in the same location?
- Spending days wondering who is sabotaging your slab setting out and perhaps more puzzling why someone would be doing this?
- Getting sick of having to edit the slab sketch and YET AGAIN lock it to a gridline?
Floor slabs sometimes feel the need to try and be helpful by shape shifting themselves when walls which are adjacent to their edges get moved. If the wall moves the slab edge moves. You can try any of the following methods to combat this behaviour to no avail. Pinning, locking sketch edges, locking dims, isolating on separate workset...All of which won’t work.
Simply put the slab(s) in a group and it will no longer be able to shape shift..
A very simple but very handy workaround. I’m guessing the same thing applies to roofs and ceilings although i haven't tested it on them yet.
