When I attempt to edit the length of a wall, both ends resize at the same time. Why is this happening and how can I stop it?


The most likely reason that this behavior may be occurring is that you are no longer in the default edit behavior. If this is the case and you have behavior indicators turned on in your preferences, you should see one of the following behavior indicators following your mouse cursor:

  • Default
  • Alternate
  • Resize
  • Concentric
  • Fillet
  • Edit Object Parts
  • Rotate About Center

To change the current edit behavior

  1. Select Edit> Edit Behaviors from the menu and select the edit behavior you wish to activate.

To toggle the display of behavior indicators

  1. Select Edit> Preferences from the menu.

    For Mac, select Home Designer> Preferences.

  2. On the Behaviors panel, check or uncheck Behavior Indicators as desired.
