One of the most annoying Softplan features is resetting wall type definition settings when changing wall materials.
 
Most of my walls are set up to have specific colours and pen weights, so that they all print consistently. If I want to duplicate a wall and change the siding from SIDING A TO SIDING C, the material being edited should retain ALL of the features of the previous selection (worst case scenario - Softplan should ask if we want to retain settings) ... NOT reset to pen 5 and DEFAULT colour. That invariably means resetting all the custom selections, when the only thing that should change is the chosen material.
 
I have sent a suggestion to Softplan regarding this, but am I alone in finding this annoying?

I agree it can be a pain, ..

 

I have found though, that multiple changes can be made simultaneously by selecting with the control key

 

Works with Pen Numbers as well, ..

Yes, you can also select by click and drag on the mouse, and select multiple segments. However, that only works if you're changing to the same colour/pen/size etc.

 

This is a sample of how my walls are configured.

I thought that might be something you'd already discovered, .. ;)

 

 

Right Click .. also allows Copy and Paste.
