    Turn Layer & Class On/Off All Viewports

    Yes, Jim, the Visibilities radio button. Lots of people don’t click on that option, but it has a lot of power. Of course, you need to have named your viewports correctly.

    WinDoor Styles - PIO vs Symbol

    when you create a symbol, you have the option to make it explode into a Plugin object automatically (as we as ensuring that the symbol is assigned to the correct class). If you don't do this when you create the symbols, you can do it later.
  3. got to agree with you on this. i'm starting to love this and when I go back to 2019 i really miss it.
  4. Notes Manager - thank you for this. it is very fast when updating the notes. Door and Window updates. I'm still playing with the automatic level of detail bit that looks useful.

    Terrain Model Datum?

    I havent tried that. The reason I wouldn't use this is that all the site modifiers would have to be in the site model layer, or at the correct Z level in other layers. My method keeps the site model information at the correct elevation in the site model layer and at the recorrect relative elevation in any other layer.
  8. can you please share a screen shot?

    2021 Architecture Wishlist

    it might be a local issue, but when you look at a detail on a sheet layer, the back reference shows you the drawing that referenced the detail (the original source of the detail). We are getting requests from building authorities to show this.

    2019 just crashed without warning - no backup file...

    I prefer to set up my back up options so that it saves every 15 operations without confirm before save and save the 5 most recent backups. I know it creates a lot of backups, and I know that they are all in one place. when I get low in HD space, I clean out the folder (and there is only one folder to clean out).

    roof coverings that automatically have gutter, downpipes (downspouts) ridges, fasicas, and flashings wall coverings that create the cladding in 3D windoor (of course) improve the detail callout maker interface. back referencing for details. a 3D handrail/fence tool that works like a polygon in 3D

    2020 set up

    I would import the classes and scripts, but set the rest up from scratch.
