Wall Insertion mode

When enabled, the Wall Insertion mode allows a symbol or plug-in object to be inserted into a wall. The symbol definition must have the Insert in Walls option enabled (see Creating symbol definitions).

Linear and rectangular plug-in objects cannot be inserted directly into a wall. However, once placed in the drawing, they can be dragged onto a wall to insert them.

When Wall Insertion mode is disabled, a symbol or plug-in object that is placed near or on top of a wall will not be inserted into it.

A symbol or plug-in object inserted into a wall is automatically made parallel to the wall’s center line, by rotating it to match the wall’s angle. To remove a symbol from a wall, click and drag it out of the wall. The wall is automatically healed.

For more information, see Symbols within a wall.
