Drawing and designing with Softplan for sometime I have one issue I can’t seem to resolve. Most often it occurs when I’m working on elevation drawings. I convert them to shapes and put the converted elevations on one drawing where I can use self drawn cross sections to verify the elevations accuracy. I’ll also paste into the drawing the different floor plans to use some information from them to transfer to the elevations, usually items that weren’t generated from the model. Complex items.
The issue is in this single drawing page with elevations, cross sections, and sometimes pasted floor plans, when I move items in blocks to align the drawn elevations, line shapes will often “get sticky” and move out of alignment, extend themselves, sometimes get left behind in “group block moves”, especially lines that are drawn at angles other than 0, 90, 180, or 360.
I’ve tried moving blocks with “attach” unselected or selected and other choices to with no avail. Things get messed up on the drawing. I use layers extensively and when I turn on a layer that was off I’ll find the drawing has many distortions that have occurred while it was turned off, and meanwhile making sure “visible items” was checked when aligning or moving groups or items. I’ve gotten to the point anytime I move a block, group block, align groups, I have to turn on all layers to help minimize this issue, but it still occurs, just at a less occurrence.
It can become a real time waster always having to go back and reconnect misc items, and then it will occur again. What can I do to alleviate this issue?
