I'm using curtain wall to make a decorative tile band.

I've created a system, and apply it to a curtain wall, and its OK. But when I try to adjust the start point in the curtain wall, panel divisions disappear, and the pattern falls apart.

Any ideas? Right side of image is OK...

Yes that is a bit strange and should not happen. It probably happens because it tries to adjust " the left overs ".
What I mean is, if you have scheme columns width at 1 meter interval and the length of 1 wall section is 9.67 m as example and the next connection wall length is 4.36 m ( random numbers ) it won't be able to divide this clean by 1 meter obviously.

I suggest to draw each section of the curtain wall as separate entity this way it is more flexible to adjust each starting point.
