    Is there a way to show elements of the floor below using the plan generator? Here is what I am trying to accomplish:

    For 2 story or 1 1/2 story houses, I like to show just the walls of the first floor below, that spread out beyond the 2nd floor as a lighter line weight so that a person looking at the 2nd. floor plan can see how the second floor relates to the 1st floor. I do not want to show the 1st floor walls that are directly under the second floor though. When the plan generator runs, It will cut out the LEVEL_01 so I can not control the wall layers of LEVEL_01 to show. Is there a way around this? It would seem that in the next edition of ConDoc, there should be a way to run a plan for one floor only in a multi-story building. See the image below for an example that was done in AutoCad using an x-reference and x-ref clipping.

    I think the best way to achieve this would be in LayOut. You could stack your second floor on top of your first floor, position it accordingly and create a shape with a white fill at 50% opacity. This will allow your top floor to be in view, and subtle first floor features underneath.
