After finishing the construction of the walls it is necessary to adjust the floor dimension. Promob has a tool for this.
1. With the walls created, click Adjust Floor Limits in the upper toolbar.
2. The shape of the floor will automatically adjust itself according to the total size of the constructed walls.
As of Promob version 188.8.131.52, when you build the wall from the Wall Editor, and select the Floor Limit Adjustment, the floor are automatically adjusted according to the exact size of the wall construction, with no floor left over.
IMPORTANT: available only for walls built by the Wall Editor.
Automatically adjust floor limits
In order for the floor adjustment to be done automatically, it is possible to configure it through the Promob Preferences tab.
1. In the Preferences tab, access Environment - Construction of Walls;
2. Check the option Cut floor when finish;
In this way, by keeping this option checked, when finishing the construction of a wall, through the Wall Editor, the floor automatically adjusts and follows the shape of the wall.
NOTES: By default, for Promob Maker, this option is checked.
When there are two or more walls, the floor adjusts to the ceilings:
Only consider walls when adjusting floor limits
In the adjustment of the floor, it is possible to define whether the limits of the floor will be considered in relation to the ends of the built walls, or if they will be considered in relation to the ends of all items that are outside the limits of the walls.
1. On the Preferences tab, access Environment - Floor;
2. Check or uncheck the option Consider only walls when adjusting floor limits;
3. The floor is adjusted as per selection;

The floor will always adjust automatically using the Adjust Floor Limits tool. In some cases the walls have a different shape and the floor needs to be adjusted manually, for this:
1. Access the Geometry Editor and in the Geometry Editor add the required number of vertices and move them to the floor line to adjust it according to the walls;
2. Click OK to view the floor in the space.
1. Select the floor and access the Tools Panel - Properties. Change the dimensions of the floor.
1. When selecting the floor, note that red arrows are displayed at the ends. Select the arrow on the side that the floor will be increased or decreased.
