Design SuiteWall properties

Edit the parameters of selected walls, and the components of standard walls, from the Object Info palette. Certain parameters are available for standard walls or for curtain walls only. Settings on the Render tab are not available for curtain walls, since the textures of frames and panels are specified separately. Use the Edit Wall tool to adjust the frames and panels of curtain walls. To change the wall attributes, use the Attributes palette.

The fields in the Object Info palette are named similarly (but not always identically) to those in the Wall Preferences dialog box, and roughly reflect the order in which settings are entered in the dialog box, for ease of editing.

The wall parameters are described in Standard wall preferences and Curtain wall preferences. Only the parameters that are different are described here.
