    Cut wall pattern issue

    I have a plan in which i wanted to set a cut pattern style to be applied to all walls, (vertical small) i set edited the pattern to align with element however it does not align with the orientation of th walls.
    What am I doing wrong?

    I´ll bet you a cold :beer: that you´ve edited the wrong pattern, and the one used for the actual walls, are set to align with view - OR you have a view override on those walls

      well, I applied the cut pattern as an override
      Why does it not work this way?

        It *should* work with an override - But am still thinking that you must be editing the wrong pattern, or accidently set the right one to "align with view"

            Thanks, somehow I did it again and it worked. I think I had edited the pattern through the override dialog and forgot to actually assign the pattern to the override
            Actually it was the fact that I assigned the pattern directly to the material of the wall then when I added the override it worked fine.

            Once I removed the pattern from the wall material then it changed again to aligned with view even though its set to align to element

                If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

                  Thanks for the link Mark! The info was right on. I had the detail set to fine so that is why it didn't work once I change it to coarse bam!
