Suddenly Windows don't cut thru the wall…?

    I tried to search for this issue – but my searches keep bringing up issues with Microsoft Windows – LOL!

    Suddenly – out of nowhere, all the windows I drop into this design don’t cut through the wall – the wall goes through them.  They are like a picture frame hanging on the wall with no picture.

    Did I click some setting somewhere?

    Doesn’t seem to matter what window I use.  When I look at the Attribute for the window, the glass and the scenery are there…   I’ve In/Out adjusted.  I’ve deleted the windows and put in new ones.  I turned off the placement zone and turned it back on.  These are standard catalogue windows – I am not using the Wizard.

    Any ideas?

    This happens occasionally and I have found no fix apart from using the control key or the in/out variable to force them into position. The only other fix is to start a new drawing, drawer the walls again and add the windows and doors and then copy and paste everything OTHER than the windows and doors from the original drawing.

    Thanks, Mike!   I even drew a new wall elsewhere on the floorplan and put a window in it just to test. Same thing.

    I did end up grabbing the entire kitchen, lights, everything except the walls and copy/pasting onto an entirely new kit file.

    I’ve never had that happen before!  Weird that it just “happened” between one render and another!

    At least I know it happens to other people!
