My walls have multiple layers which used to display in floor plan, but now they are gone, and only my main layer shows! How do I turn the display of those other wall layers back on so I can see them in my floor plan?


If you have checked the Disp column for the Walls, Main Layer Only layer in Display Options, only the main layer of your walls will display.

To turn on the display of all wall layers

  1. Select Tools> Layer Settings> Display Options .

    In Chief Architect X5 and prior, navigate to Tools> Display Settings> Display Options. 

    • In your currently active layer set for floor plan view, scroll down to the 'Walls, Main Layer Only' layer, and uncheck the Disp column.

    • Click OK, and any walls in your plan that have multiple layers will now show them in floor plan view.
