    Walls joining up on their own

    I have had some odd issues with walls in 2012.

    It seems like they are more 'attractive' to each other than they were in 2011. specifically any time the touch, they join up in parallel. And when you then move them they drag the adjoining walls along. I know this may be a feature, but it seems they are stickier than in 2011 and there are some problems.

    See attached file. I just have a standard wall and a little base wall piece. They just cannot seem to be next to each other in parallel without messing each other up. Hopefully the attachment is clear, and the behavior replicates, if you try it.

    I get the same (annoying) behavior, but can easily work around it by selecting "Disallow Join" for the thin wall pieces before moving them, and "Allow Join" when they are in place...

    Hardly ever model walls like this, so I can´t tell you if it specific to 2012...

      Thanks for checking, at least it replicated when you played with it. I just don't recall anything like this in previous versions.

      We are doing a fussy interior and we are using these thin walls to model all sorts of floor base types of different heights, which stop and start in lot of different ways along the walls. Is there a better way?

        It seems to me also that wall joins are slightly different in 2012 - I hadn't noticed an increase in er, mutual attraction, but I was surprised the other day to be able to get walls with small changes of direction to clean up at the corners by mixing mitred and regular joins.

        For most wall joins I change the default joining method to Mitred - it's a pity you can't choose the default method for joining and to have Disallow Join saved as part of the wall parameters - most internal partitions I use Disallow Join on any ends which meet external or non-partition walls.

        Clicking on the blue dot at automatically joined wall junctions should cycle through the joining options.
