  1. I'm not sure this is what you want but you can ungroup snappable pdf's which provides you with a line drawing from the original vector drawing.
  2. I agree. I’m pretty sure this is on a wish list already along with requesting to import sheet layer objects like you can with design layers.
  3. Thanks Art. You are onto something there. There is no remote object in the referenced file that I can find. In the referenced file zooming to extents with all classes/layers on zooms in tight to the floor plan. However in the master file, with only the DLVP selected, zooming to extents zooms way out. When the objects using the floor tool are deleted from the referenced file and updated into the master file then zooming to extents in the master zooms in tight to the floor plan just like in the referenced file. Clearly some bug with the floor tool in refenced DLVP's.
  4. Thanks Wes. Since my last post I've actually reorganised my drawings so that the floor plan was no longer a referenced file which solved the issue for me but ideally I wouldn't have had to do that. So in case there is a bug (which looks likely) then here are stripped out site plan and referenced floor plan files. They are v2019.

  5. Alternatively if you are using drawing templates then the most efficient way is to set up the templates with the most commonly used tools set to preferred default settings.
  6. Hmmm... so it seems to only happened on referenced DLVP (at the moment).
  7. I would definitely use this. I don't know why this isn't already built into the program.
  8. Is another perhaps simpler option is to put the “A” windows on an A class and the “B” ones on a B class etc. Then have seperate database rows for each class?
  9. Objects created from the floor tool disappear when a crop is added to a DLVP. Any clues as to what is going on? 2020-01-15 14-09-34.mp4
  10. I've just been playing with this. As @Taprootsuggests it's a fantastic way to make quick consistent location plans that look good.
  11. You can use the smart points snap. With snap points on in the snap settings, grab an object at the center point, hover over point one for a second or so till a snap appears, hover over point two till till a snap point appears, a dashed snapping line should appear between the two points. You can then place your object on the midpoint of this line.

    Calling up finishes

    Thanks Grant. That's a clever way to do it. I wouldn't have thought of that. I am however looking for an automated system where the tag is pulling data so whereever it is placed it will self update to display the correct info. The reason is that we are working in teams and having a simple bullet proof system is less prone to errors creeping in whenever something needs revising. I still like my idea of using classes and class descriptions however it falls down as I don't know a way to list in a worksheet the class description of a class of an object. Is this because the worksheet will only list record info of the object not the class of the object? Perhaps there is another way? I already use space objects for finishes and have an extensive set of codes for floor, wall, ceiling finishes etc. It would be great to be able to use this info but not be tied to using the limited finishes functionality of space objects. This must be a very common issue so I'm sure there are lots of systems people use...
