I an wondering if anyone has discovered if the latest version(s) of Softplan have addressed the issue of windows that match the rise of a stair placed against an exterior wall.
The bottom of the top (and maybe more) window usually starts on the lower level while the top of that window "passes" thru the floor system and into the upper level.
This is not possible if you have two walls separated by your floor system.
My solution has been to draw a wall on the lower level the height which includes the floor and upper level wall and then eliminate the wall on the second level at that location and draw lines to show the wall so it will print.
I draw all the windows on the lower level, adjusting their elevations as required and draw any windows going thru to the upper level as dashed. In elevation (after I have generated it) I also have to ensure that my stair opening at that location does not include the subfloor or rim joist as they go right thru the window.. that process is a real trial and error as if the opening comes too far past the wall it "cuts' the window too.
It's a tedious process and doesn't allow me to fully use Softplan's BIM capabilities. I was hoping that with the changes for such things as stairs being drawn once and now being "included" on all levels that there might also be something for being able to place windows in a similar manner.
Any input appreciated.
