  1. Lets give this another bump.

    Resources for Backgrounds

    Wondering if the forum would chime in on resources for great backgrounds for exterior renderings. Suitable for Single Detached homes. Something to cover up the infinite horizon.
  3. While I understand what you're saying that really a sub-class is not different than any other class, is there such a thing as a real sub-class and what would it look like or behave like?
  4. This is the crux of the matter. It's about reducing the amount of clicking. I myself generally just duplicate a class (provided that it's already nested) and then edit the class to fix the naming. Another "little" thing that would go a long way to speeding things up. Gets my vote.

    Roof plan - best practices

    If your drawing your objects with 3D in mind you'll get your 2D automatically. I always put my roof objects on a separate layer to start. For objects like gutters, chimney caps, etc. you'll need to turn these into autohybrids to show solid. Attached is a simple roof plan. I generally do not show gutter and downspout locations.

    Custom Window Sash tool options

    Hi @jcosgrove Windoor as it is called has only been available to those in NZ and Australia. So unless you got your license thru there, there is no way to get it unfortunately. The rest of us have been waiting and waiting to get our hands on it.
  7. I've been using the new titleblock set up but just a little and it's doing ok on a basic level. Haven't gotten into some of the grand stuff I guess it's suppose to do but I'm all for getting this kinda stuff sorted out.
  8. @Rob Books some more fire trucks would be a good idea too. Sizes, turning radii are important in building design (fire fighter access). A few examples attached.
  9. @Rob Books Thanks for the lastest Entourage vehicles (Commercial). The front loading garbage truck and the dump trucks are welcome additions. WISH GRANTED! @J. Wallace there are some for you too. Check them out.

    Symbol Name in OIP

    The little things. The little things.
  11. I'd love to see a couple, 3 really, small enhancements made to the Line Marker editing function. 1. Have the Header Names function just like others do in the program so that when you for instance select "Length" the list will re-sort in a numerical order largest to smallest or smallest to largest. Alpha numeric in the case of Marker Name. (See item 2) or Marker Type, etc. 2. Provide a new column (Marker Name) that will show a name that could be given to any Marker. So that when using an exhaustive list of markers and for the sake of others in the office (standards) I can quickly find the precise marker I need. 3. Instead of a # column it would be a Stacking order with a drag and drop function. Right now if I select "New" and make a new marker and say "OK" the new marker goes to the bottom of the list. Predictable but I want it further up the list. Or...if I select a marker somewhere within the current list and select "New" and say "OK" the new marker shows up under the marker I selected originally when I selected "New". I don't want the new marker there; hence Stacking order with a drag and drop Upon making any change the said change will remain intact the next time the Edit Marker List function is selected One more thing...This
