Bill, is there any way to make the Tray Ceiling show up(drawn in ceiling mode) on the floor plan without having to draw lines every time like I have on this drawing?

 

Thanks

Rick

In drawing mode you can go to Options⇒Visible Items and click on the word Ceiling System in the Group Visibilities. From the list that appears place a check next to Ceiling Tray. This will show the tray ceiling in drawing mode. Unfortunately it will show as solid lines with a fill color, which does not match the style you presented in your image. To match the style you are showing you will need to draw in with lines. However, since your tray is now visible you can use snaps and quickly draw in your ceiling lines by tracing over the tray. Then turn the visibility off again.

It snap's to the edge of the wall. I can't get it to snap to the steps.

 

Thanks

Apparently I misunderstood what you were trying to do. From your original message I thought you were asking how to make the ceiling show in drawing mode. Apparently you are wanting to have an automatic step diagram, which is not available in SoftPlan.

Yes, that's what I wanted. I just wanted to try and save time.
