  1. Hi @LarryO Thank you very much for your response and being so thorough providing alternatives. I think I will create a hybrid symbol so I can control graphics a bit better. I won't need to take quantities of get a schedule from the drawings. Thanks again!
  2. Hi, Just like Josh, I am looking to change the centre mark. Is there a way to achieve that, please? Thank you.
  3. @Tom W. Yes, I have changed the stacking so far, that's how I got the screenshot I sent. I just cannot understand why the 2D fill is not a thing completely separate from the 3D texture. It seems like a missing piece. I would like it to happen in model space because this is where I do the drafting, so I would prefer to work on a platform that actually looks like what's going to be on the sheet. That's okay though, I will make it work this way. Thanks for all your help Tom. Have a good rest of your day ūüôā
  4. @Tom W. Hi Tom, Thank you for the response. Yes, I understand how to make it work on the sheet. Can I achieve the same result in model space? Thank you.
  5. Hello, Thank you for your response. I mean that I want to see the walls solid in 3D (with its texture) and I want to be able to see objects through it in 2D. I attached a screen shot of what I want in 2D and 3D (note that when I see what I want in 2D, the wall is transparent in 3D. Thank you so much!
  6. Hi All, I am trying to get a wall with multiple components to display a solid texture when looking at it in 3D but have the component display no fill in 2D. If setting the "Edit wall attributes..." Fill to None, then the wall appears transparent in 3D even though each of the components have a texture. Which must be normal, but then, how do you force the component (for which the class fill is already set to transparent) to show no fill in 2D? Thank you!
  7. Never mind, I figured it out. 2021 comes with a bunch of new options for landing details (Stair to Slab connection) and I guess some of the old settings are not accepted anymore as some of the new options make more sense. See screenshot attached. I will leave this here in case someone runs into the same issue.
  8. Hello, I was wondering if anyone has experienced this stair object error when converting an existing 2020 file to 2021: "The distance from the top of the floor to the top of the notch must be larger than the distance from the top of the floor to the top of the stair body" These stairs worked fine in 2020 apart from the usual 3D glitches when using the clip cube. But when converting the model I am getting this error (See screenshot). I can just rebuild the stairs but I would like to understand what's happening. Thank you!
  9. Thanks Pat, I thought from your other posts on the topic the Record.Field would be the way to go but I have not had the courage to dig into it yet. I think I should, it sounds promising. I will surely take you up on your offer for more help if needs be! Thanks a lot! Jean
  10. Hi Pat, Thanks for the quick response. I understand for the greying, that's okay, it would make things a bit more legible. Regarding the recall on database cells, I was simply trying to retrieve all my door numbers into a manual entry worksheet. I used a workaround. I originally was trying to get some manual input into a database worksheet but understood it wasn't possible by reading some of your older posts. The goal was to create a decent graphic output for a hardware schedule. So I ended up creating another worksheet (manual this one) format it like the database door schedule and put them right next to each other (see screenshot) Thanks for your help!
  11. Hi, On a similar topic, I am trying to format cells in a database. The database worksheet (door schedule) is quite long, and I would like to use a grey fill in every other row. But as soon as I format a cell, the entire column takes on the same attribute. Is there a way around that? Is it normal. Second question, can I retrieve cell results from a database worksheet into a regular (manual entry) worksheet. I can recall other worksheet but I cannot seem to find the proper way to recall the cell from a database as they are labelled in the format "A1.1" and the "." seems to throw off the formula. Thank you!
  12. Super! Thanks @michaelk that's a good tip to extract the 2D component of the hybrid symbol. I guess, I will turn it into an autohybrid to get it cut at the appropriate height. Thank!
  13. @michaelk @Pat Stanford Thank you so much, I will test these options. I haven't used either the custom leaf or "use symbol geometry" for door in the past. I should have thought about Pat's option as I think I remember using that for windows. Anyways, thank you both very much for taking the time to reply and being so thorough! J
  14. Hello, I was wondering if anyone would be familiar with a way to adequately model a folding overhead glazed door? I can certainly model a door and insert it as a symbol, but I want the door schedule to pick it up. I attached an image to give you an idea of what I am after. Thank you!
  15. I see, I misinterpreted your intention! I'll do some more digging.
