    Draw wall relative to inside face rather than center

    When I am placing the walls and type in a dimension, I want the wall to be placed relative to the inside face of the wall to the inside face of the other wall as opposed to the center-line of the wall. For example, say I am drawing an enclosed 2 foot by 2 foot area. I want to be able to draw the wall and type 2 feet, and have the 2 feet be the INSIDE FACE dimension, rather than the 2 feet be from center-line to center-line of the wall. This would save a lot of time because we measure the areas based on the inside face then put them in the project. I want to avoid the extra step of having to click the walls and change the dimensions after they are placed. Is there a setting that controls this?

    When you are placing the wall, check your options bar. There is a pull-down for "Location Line:" There you can find different placement locations.
