SoftPlan Version:
2014

All of my drawings are really up-dates using 2012 to 2014.  As a result, I have only recently started a new drawing using the defaults of 2014.  I want to dimension stud to stud.  2014 seems to only allow me to dimension dw 2x4 dw walls at 4 1/2".  How can I change this?

Larry,

The checkbox for where you want to dimension a wall is in system options. Once you have started a plan you have to change it in drawing options (if the system options wasn't changed before you started the drawing). If that fails then you need to look at the wall definition and make sure that the boxes for extensions and dimensions is set to "none".

I did both.  The interior

I did both.  The interior wall option is only edge or center.  In the past, I thought it also had stud edge.  Can I set the thickness of the drywall to 0 and get the 3 1/2" wall?

Larry, if you will attach one of your drawings that has the extension problem I'll be happy to take a look at it and tell you what you need to do. It could be a wall  definition change or a dimension settings change.

Wall Definition

Edit the wall definition and change the Stud Dimension setting to Both.
