The structural plan of a story is the system that will carry the architectural plan of the upper story. Therefore, the beams and slabs to be entered in the structural plan must be in harmony with the architectural plan of an upper story.

With the settings you will make from the Transparent Story Settings dialog, you can see the objects of the upper and lower stories in virtual lines, and you can easily create your project using virtual lines as a reference.

You can set whether or not to show the traces of the objects on the lower and upper stories, display line type and colors.
