Hi,

 

I manually traced a non-structural floor slab and included the 9'3"x10" segment for the garage door cut.There is a separate wall segment at the door that is 4" lower. When I finished the trace it snapped to the inside of the foundation wall losing the part at the door opening. Am I doing something wrong?

I answered my own question. I redrew it with an exaggerated projection  through the opening (about 2' to the outside of the building). It then allowed me to adjust the edge back to the face of the wall in 3-D view and so far it has stayed put. I had only tried adjusting the slab edge in plan view. I separated the two slab areas so I could slope the floor back to front in the garage. This puts my garage door at the right height.

Here are the final results for the slab and the 3-D view

Will this stay in place even when the drawing is cleaned up or re-opened? I think I've used this trick before but have had to uncheck cleanup... Yes. I just tried it again and my touch points always reset to the interior of the foundation wall.
