Surface disappearing

I am using surfaces to create a different floor covering etc. in portions of my main rooms. Unfortunately, these surfaces can sometimes get behind the main floor surface so you cannot see them. I can delete the main floor (i-icon, then trash) and see them, but as soon as the floor is regenerated (e.g. I tweak a wall and it is re-created) the surface again goes behind the main floor covering. I tried changing the elevation of the surface to no avail. In PowerPoint there is a “bring to front” command for objects – is there any similar command in floorplanner? Or any fix to this? Thanks!

Hi,

You can draw surfaces manually with the 2nd icon in the construction menu, which is useful if you need a surface which isn’t enclosed by walls. Another thing about these surfaces is that they have some options under the right mouse menu, mirroring, duplicating, and as you need: sending to front and back. btw: elevation doesn’t help out here, it only has effect on the 3D elevation… something we’ll have to work on :)

Excellent! I wasn’t aware of the options on the right mouse menu – does the trick. Thanks!
