Thanks, and maybe I answer this first -balrobs wrote: ↑Tue Nov 24, 2020 7:46 amBut afterwards, if I try to edit a width of a wall segment using the command "EditWallWidth" and selecting a specific wall segment, first the wall alignment flips and then several input dialogs are sequentially opened. I would only expect one dialog asking me to modify the respective wall segment width (maybe having the possibility to specify unit dimensions?) without flip action.

Then, thanks for testing the experimental WB I have explained somewhere about the vision and current implementation and the development direction as an architect. However, the features being experimented had not been fully exposed in the ArchSketch in github for some reasons and limited time. The capabilities to have different Align and Width are 'partially' supported on ordinary Sketch currently (and ArchSketch is in fact currently treated only as ordinary Sketch atm).balrobs wrote: ↑Tue Nov 24, 2020 7:46 am- Installed windows and doors were not adapted to the changed floor plan geometries
This approach was very vulnerable to the topological naming problem, especially if sketches were deleted or changed afterwards. (I was able to reduce this problem considerably by using @realthunder's LinkStage3-branch)
All these problems seems to be addressed by your solution so let me encourage you to keep going on.
Thank you @paullee for your very detailed post.
One more point about switching Align - there maybe some occasion after you click an edge / segment nothing seem happens, check the Report Window if something like 'Arch Wall has an invalid Shape'.
Current width in the dialog box is a good suggestion See if I can do that. And look forward to any comments, it's always good to have view on expected workflow from architectural practitioners.balrobs wrote: ↑Wed Nov 25, 2020 1:15 pmBTW maybe a simple improvement could be to open the dialog with the actual wall segment width after the user clicked on a specifis wall segment.
I will going on experimenting the new feature to support placing Arch Window/ Door/ Equipment 'parametrically' and post my impressions here.
Thank you again for your effort!

So we should always consider this optional.
That said, it seems like a good idea indeed that on inserting an appliance, you'd be offered the possibility to "hook" it somehow on a wall...
It seems turns out to be not that difficult
