Hi there,

I am wondering why can't I editing curtain wall boundary in a section or elevation view? just can do that in 3D. view. Seems like everything is locked. but I can edit the other things like frames and panels. But not the scheme. the only thing I can do in the scheme is moving it.

Thanks.

Hello Zhihao 1990,

Each type of view allows access to specific and appropriate commands. The interest is not to edit the object despite either. In a sectional or elevation view, it is possible (in some cases) that the curtain wall is partially visible. Editing it via this type of view therefore involves a risk. Different views are also tools that should be used correctly to get the best result. For example, a point of a mesh can be configured in 3D relative to another point (subjectively) or in 2D with a precise altitude coordinate. Two views = two objectives for the same logic > the best result !

Thanks for your reply, I totally understand what you mean. But how come in some case you will be able to edit the boundary via a section or elevation, and how come in this case it is uneditable? that's something i am so confused about.
