    Viewports and design layer order

    I didn't revert the order of the layers, but i was able to use the eyedropper tool to copy the layer order from one viewport to another. here are the options I used.

    Why do my doors keep jumping out of the wall?

    the other thing I would look for is a wall that has no fill. that makes it hard to find the wall when you drag along the wall.

    Massing model roof profile

    sure, Bob, you can do that. Be careful of the inserting point of the symbol, it determines the elevation of the symbol when you use send to surface.

    Massing model roof profile

    Edit your Massing model preferences. The important settings are the: use Custom Roof from Profile Pitched roof. You need both. once you have created your massing model, right-click and choose Edit Profile. The profile is a roof object that you can edit like a standard roof. The buildings in the image are massing models, even the one with the curve on the roof

    Enable clip tool to clip walls

    that could be good, but it has its issues. people might use that to create openings in the wall, when they should really create an opening.

    hybrid objects can only be rotated...

    if you remove the 2D part from the symbol you can rotate it freely.
  8. I think Boh is right with this.

    Worksheet calculating Spare Fixture counts

    try this: =INT(C3)+(IF((3)-INT(C3)>0, 1, 0))

    Worksheet calculating Spare Fixture counts

    you only need to add one if the rounding does work. I use this IF statement =INT(D3/E3)+(IF((D3/E3)-INT(D3/E3)>0, 1, 0)) (this is from one of my other worjsheets and does not relate to your worksheet)
