Summary0004756: When creating a wall from a rectangle in Arch it makes a oversize wall on the outskirts of the area for manipulation
DescriptionI can't sign up for forums, it won't let me sign up.
Separately in FreeCAD I just create a rectangle in Arch and want it to make a wall.
What it does is make a oversized wall on the perimeters of the platform to make the architecture and all that was expected for a wall to be made with the perimeters of the rectangle.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open FreeCAD 0.19
2. Pick new project
3. Pick Arch
4. make rectangle
5.turn off face of rectangle: make false
6.highlight rectangle
7.pick wall and click on rectangle
8. Oversize wall outside perimeters of Area for manipulation shows up instead of on rectangle
9. must zoom out and rotate to see incorrect wall.

This is actually the normal and expected behaviour. The Arch Wall is created from all 4 edges of the drawn rectangle, making it a rectangular shape enclosed by 4 walls. The drawn rectangle acts as the base line for the walls. You can now change the orientation of the walls on this base line to center/left/right. If you want to create a single straight wall, use the Draft_Line command (draw a single line), select this line and then select Arch_Wall.

Maintainer -> please close this ticket as it is no bug.

That's not is what is happening to mine. It produces a wall outside the perimeters of the area for manipulation that is not along the rectangle produced and the wall is extremely large but now I don't even get a wall but an error message when I try the same procedure.

I thought that I already put in the version as 0.19 in product and I don't know how to do a simple example file.
I don't know what to do now to show the problem.

The forum wouldn't let me on. This tracker is the only place I can go.

If your implying you want this taken down I don't know how to do that. What do I do to take it down?
