The predefined surface is selected from the icon from the list of available materials in the program. This library cannot be expanded or edited. The selection is made only by indicating the name of the material, which, unfortunately, cannot be previewed. But after a few projects, you will more or less remember what the material looks like.
If you do not like to choose the material randomly, you also have the Textured Surfaces, which are available under the icon
NOTE: Remember not to move or change the name of the selected texture or the name of the directory in which it is located. Move the often-used textures to the ArCADia textures catalogue and download them to the project from there. The program only saves the path to the file and if it changes, the program will not find it.
A wall can be textured on the right, left, or its sides, which is visible on the edge of the wall and in its openings. But how do you know which side of the wall is left and which side is right? After selecting a wall, the direction in which the wall was drawn is shown in the view.
From the arrow direction, you can see which side is which and texture the appropriate one.
Please note that the wall is textured along its entire length on the indicated side. This means that if a wall passes through several rooms, all rooms will have the same texture on that wall surface.
In order for the wall to be textured differently in each room, it should be divided.
To divide a wall, choose wall, select the Split wall
