  1. until

    Is there a recording of this available?
  2. I was told a couple years ago that there isn't a way to turn them off, as it is part of the Braceworks module. I think that it is still true, but I haven't dug into it for a while. My solution is to create a class that is always hidden and every so often run my script to select them and then re-class them. The name of my hidden class is "Truss Cross Turds".
  3. Looks like I am headed to the Hoist(Legacy) tool. I even tried to attach a custom record to the hoist symbols as jcogdell suggested, but when the hoist is inserted using the new Hoist tool, it seems to make the attached record fields inaccessible too edit.
  4. Yes. It is called a Truss Cross in the OIP. It is classed into the active class. They are added automatically when two separate trusses cross each other's path.
  5. I am referring to the automatically inserted Truss Crosses (see the attached screenshot). They are automatically generated and seem to get placed in the active class. For me, Braceworks is an add on that I have in case a client insists on using it. This happens for me maybe once or twice a year. I have my own load calculation process and I am leaning towards uninstalling Braceworks completely. There are too many limitations in the plug-in to work for me.
  6. Is there some way for us to turn off Braceworks or at a minimum the component that auto adds the truss crosses? I use Braceworks only when I have a client that uses it also. 90% of the time I do not use it and I find myself constantly selecting truss crosses and deleting them.
  7. FYI - I just checked SP2 and this does not seem to be fixed.
  8. Yes, I have 2020 SP1 and that is where I am seeing this issue.
  9. Thanks. Don't forget to mention that the whole process locks up as soon as you uncheck the 'Relative X,Y On Plot:' With that box unchecked the X & Y dimensions NEVER change.
  10. Also, if you add those 'Measure From:' X and Y distances to the Hoist Data Display and have the 'Relative X,Y on Plot' check box checked you would expect to see the values of those X & Y dimensions to be the same. It ends up that the X & Y dimensions added to the Hoist Data Display actually display the previous measurement when you move the hoist around.
  11. Yes, I understand that. 1. Place a hoist anywhere in a drawing and have the 'Relative X,Y on Plot' check box checked and turned on. 2. Move the hoist and the 'Measure From:' X & Y dimensions behave as expected. 3. Uncheck the 'Relative X,Y on Plot' check box. 4. Move the hoist and the X & Y dimensions do NOT update. If you go through those simple steps you will see what I'm talking about.
  12. It gets really weird if you add the "X" and "Y" Hoist Fields to the Hoist Data Display while having Relative X,Y turned on. Those numbers should be the same, but they aren't. There is definitely something off with this tool and these numbers.
  13. This is interesting. I checked again to see if I can reproduce the error. It seems that one must keep the box "Relative X, Y On Plot:" checked in order for the Relative X,Y to be recalculated. If that box is not checked, the "Measure From:" numbers do not change. Since I don't use the Relative X,Y on Plot and all of my worksheets reference the Measure From value this still is causing me problems, but I now see the workaround. Thanks for answering my post.
