  1. Yes, I've seen the same behaviour. A bug has been submitted.
  2. Dave, file attachedtest render model.vwx

  4. Windoor allows control of the architrave offset if you have access to it.
  5. PDF Squeezer on MacOS has been my go for years, it’s easy , quick and controllable. Oh, and good value.
  6. That’s disappointing, the Graphic Legends feature shows great promise
  7. The most straight forward work around is to use Windoor which allows more control of this. I do wonder what led to the 2 dimensions being one parameter, is this a ‘normal’ thing somewhere?
  8. Emily, Thats right, it's line control is just out of reach for now! good luck with your custom window symbol. Regards Colin
  9. It seems to use the None class, and as you noticed, doesn't appear as an option in the Window/Settings/2D visualization tab. If you don't already know, if you ever need to check these you can set up a test PIO and assign seperate classes to each category in the 2d visualization tab, then select and press Command+K, it will be converted to a group so you can then check which classes have been assigned to each part. Some groups will have a class from the visibility section of the same 2D visualization tab, so the sash swing is in a group by default in the visibility class 'Sills', but inside that group the swept arc of the sash is defined by the 'Swing' and is configured to use the class fill and line; the dotted rectangle showing the sash projection uses the 'None' class, but it's line and fill do not use the None class settings so it is preset as far as I can tell. Hope this helps (!), it's not very intuitive and the naming of the visibility classes is certainly misleading.
  10. It is surprising, I have found them really helpful. Thank you!
  11. If the window is controlled by a style, right click on the symbol defining the style in the resource browser, you will see the plug- in object options in the context menu. if it is unstyled, right click on the window PIO to get the same menu.
  12. Like Christiaan, I used to use NBS Building, that has now been replaced with Chorus which is too expensive for a couple of months use per year. The small version of Chorus doesn't use Uniclass and is too restricted for the work we get involved in, the medium and large scale versions are difficult to justify the costs for limited use. So now when we do write specifications, it is manual office standards.
  13. I usually model ridge tiles, the roof looks more realistic and of course they show in hidden line elevations and roof plans too. In areas with tight planning controls, visually appealing, accurate representations really help to sway the doubters. We have solar panels, surely ridge tiles can’t be too difficult. Space X, now that’s difficult!
  14. It excludes the sill which isn’t always what you might wish for. The worksheet can be modified so the reported height is a sum of the window frame height plus the sill height.
