wall numbers vs. door and overlay numbers
« on: March 20, 2018, 05:26:38 PM »
I have a question concerning walls and overlays/doors: Walls are numbered starting from 1. Is this also the case for doors and overlay, or are they still numbered starting from 0?

They should all start with 1. :) (I mean that I think that they do.)

I agree that they SHOULD.

But did we not allow the designer to specify otherwise?
And, if we did, then it SHOULD apply to
doors and such.

Hi Paul and Manikus, I just checked and found that while walls start with 1 by default, overlays still seem to start with 0 (I tested it in a design in which I did not alter the Global Attributes...).

Can you make us a mini-mod showing this problem?

I feared you would ask that... 

Just kidding, the only problem is that I realize such problems when my designs are already quite big. I should have followed my earlier idea to do very small designs to test the different features of DC.

I will see to do a small mod and also test the issue concerning doors. Might take a few days, though.

Since you really only need to show us the wall/overlay/door issue... You can make a copy of your design, and in the copy remove all events and all layers except one, and move the start place to a point right next to a wall/overlay/door that illustrates the issue.

I wrote a message to you and Paul with a link. It should illustrate the "problem" well.
