Hi, Kevin

I started using this yesterday (thank you again!) and noticed that the walls are all lines... or connectors... or something  ????

Can you share why you did it that way and how you styled/formatted them to the lengths you wanted and angles, etc.

The reason I ask is that I can't seem to work it out. For example, I'd like to extend some of the walls, but can't work out how to do so without altering the thickness and other attributes. And just grabbing the end of the line and dragging it doesn't appear to proportionally extend the wall as it would with an object.

I'm sure there's a logical reason for making (what seems to be) this unusual choice. 

I'm also sure that editing them is simple and I'm just going at it arse about face.

Any tips?

Cheers,

Leslie

Leslie,

So sorry for the delay in replying. 

You are correct that the walls are simply lines.   To start I drew the walls as just lines.  Then I grouped all the lines (very important step), then I right clicked, went to format and started messing with the 3D settings until I got where I wanted it.  The rest of the picture was then built off that 3D framework of walls.   To move walls in this one would mean going backwards, which is possible, but difficult.  (I just tried to see if I could do it)  

If you still wanted to use this template, I'd ungroup the entire picture, remove all the furniture and such first (save them as pictures or move them to an empty page) and then try to highlight all the walls and undo the 3D settings.  You'll see when you undo the 3D things start not lining up anymore.  And you'll also notice lots of extra lines that stick out and look out of place.  Those were details I put in as finishing touches to help blend the picture together. 

When you move walls, you'll also need to move the doors (which sometimes have three pieces to them). 

Hope that helps!

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
