      • Use Code Map – This option allows finishFloors to look at the finish code map to determine the type of floor to place in a room.  If unchecked, the default type will be placed.
      • Floor Type Not Found – If the floor type specified is not found finishFloors can either place the default type or prompt for a type.
      • Default Floor Type – The default floor type to place if code map is unchecked.

      • Ignore – No thresholds will be created.  This is the same behavior as previous versions.

      • Center of Frame – Floor finish will be extended to the center of the door frame at each threshold.
  • dimensionCheck
    • The primary dialog has been made ‘always on top’ so that it does not get lost behind the Revit main window.
