Message: Centering an object.The information in this article applies to:
- Chief Architect X5
- Chief Architect X4
- Chief Architect X3
- Chief Architect X2
When I try to center an object like a door or window on a wall, various messages display, telling me that centering will not be done. How do I avoid this problem?
These messages will display when you click in a location that does not allow the program to determine which wall of a room should be used to center the object.
In order for the Center Object tool to work, two conditions must be met:
- You must click in the room that you want the object to be centered in;
- You must click sufficiently near the wall that you want to center the object along without actually clicking on the wall.
It is important that you not click on the wall that you wish to center the selected object along.
In Chief Architect X2 and prior, you do not receive the advanced feedback on centering that you do in Chief Architect X3 and newer, so the image below shows several instances of centering. The areas that the program can use to determine both the wall and the room that a door should be centered on are highlighted.
