nifty window, door & railing trick

Post by kohledfusion » Mon Dec 03, 2007 5:52 pm

Just had a "duh" moment.

I've saved a bunch of doors, windows & railing elevations as symbols. When I place them over siding, I must explode & start 'cutting' out spots where it overlaps the siding.

I just added a white fill behind the footprint of a window elevation & moved it backward so that the lines of the window are up front. Now, when I place it over siding lines, the white fill 'covers' the siding lines - I don't have to trim siding lines out (or explode my symbol)!

I'll resubmit my symbols to the download site after I redo all of em with the white-fill.
