Option between creating the walls walltrace, as sketch or as draft

Postby Renato Rebelo » Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:12 pm

Hello,
I was wondering if it would be possible to create an option in the arch bench preferences to choose between creating the walls walltrace, as sketch or as draft.
This was important because draft lines are more flexible and easy to edit, but skecths are more powerful allowing you to use constrains. So the user could choose according to the needs.
thank you, :D

That's a good idea. I think it should be not only a preference option but also a checkbox in the wall task panel so you could switch between the two anytime during your work session... Would you mind creating an issue in the tracker for it?

+1. I use draft lines for my some drawing, it was easy to change since it come with details in property editor. :)

I prefer to do that after the release, as it might introduce some problems...
