Recalculate Room Points
After I move a wall by a few inches or move a door left or right along a wall, I have to update the room. Right now the easiest way is to delete the room and add it again with double click (because fixing the room to match a moved door manually takes a long time).

But then I have to select the textures again, change labels, etc.

It would be nice to have a button inside the "Modify Room" dialog box that lets you recalculate the room points (basically same calculation as when I double click in the center of the room). You could simulate this by assuming I double clicked into the center of the selected room.

Or is there already a good approach to this problem that I am missing?

Re: Recalculate Room Points
I had the idea to add an option to recalculate rooms like you proposed.
But I already introduced a solution to simplify this operation: cut the room, create the room with double click and select Edit > Paste style menu item.

Re: Recalculate Room Points
Thanks Emmanuel, this is a good tip. I will use this from now on!

For new users the idea to have a button to recalculate would be nice though, so if it is easy to implement I think it would a way to make the software even more intuitive and user friendly (It already is AWESOME!)

Hi rhawke
Sounds like a good idea to me, i never get door positions right 1st time, or 2nd come to that.
