    For each cleaning option, the positions in the list support multiple selection by holding down the Ctrl or Shift key and clicking the left mouse button.

    checkbox multiple blank circle outline - deselect all items in the list;

    format list checks - switch (invert) the selection of items in the list.

    Clear - starts cleaning on the selected items in the list.

    Deletion on some items in the list is irrevocable.

    UNPLACED ROOMS

    In the tab, there is a list of rooms that are not placed and are in the project.

    Unplaced rooms are rooms that have been deleted from the view, but they are not deleted from the project and remain in its database. If necessary, these rooms can be placed again in another view keeping the room properties (name, finishing materials).

    To start cleaning, select rooms and click the Remove selected (...) button, or remove all rooms using the Remove all (...) button.
