  1. OK, classes were the culpirit (but I'm positive they were all on). righhhht.... railings still an issue. thanks
  2. hi, this may have been covered - I have found a few similar posts but nothing exactly this problem: stairs, visibilities on VP's: defined upper floor and lower floors as seen in stair settings below, from 2nd floor DL. they are visible in the DL of both main and 2nd floor, but not the 2nd floor VP. (also visible in main floor VP). class is not the problem - all are on. should I copy the stairs to 2nd floor DL so it's duplicated? (I have done that before just to get the job done, or draw in 2d, so I can keep going, but don't think it's the idea intended with the stair tool) also, the hand rail is set to inside only but shows up both sides, that's secondary to this visibility thing and too much time spent already to figure that out.... thanks for any help!! ps is there a good video tutorial for stairs that covers stuff like this?
  3. Hi, thanks - did the type=door, doesn't change it. how do I remove the door record from those 2 doors?
  4. thanks Pat - I couldn't access add surface, but edit group was the thing!!! simple. thanks!
  5. I have 2 doors on my schedule that I don't want to show. in the oip the "on schedule" box is not checked, and I have tried checking then un-checking... what am I missing? in the criteria for the door schedule, record = door = present, and the specific DL's are chosen. all that is perfect. I don't see another option to choose ALL doors vs only ones that have the on sched. box checked - which makes no sense. thanks for any help!
  6. I know this is posted somewhere, and that it will be a "duh" moment to get the solution, but I can't seem to find the thread. I have clipped off parts of intersecting roofs (still having trouble with connect/combine - that's another discussion), the issue is that I need to restore a small part of one roof - how to do that? it's a pia to re-create the roof, but it might come to that... I know it's simple, like an ungroup command and re-group after, or something..... thanks in advance for any help !
  7. hi Wes, this is probably a no brainer... where is the complete list as you show to set window parameters? my list of classes has no level of detail like this - it has "door class" and no sub categories, same for windows, except for " windows main"... I had to add the window and door class, probably because I used a previous file which didn't have them. is there a resource to import all the standard available classes with their sub categories to fix this? I don't even know how to screen shot my list to show you. many thanks from lisa
  8. thanks Russ, I'll give it a go! also changed the navigation graphics to good performance and compatibility - will try this first then your work around. thanks again
  9. it sounds like something similar to what I am experiencing, rja/a. because I'm still learning BIM and trying to commit to it, I keep thinking I am doing something wrong or have conflicts within my files that are causing problems. but what? 2 big question marks so far with my very recently upgraded computer$$$ and VW 2019: - I'll update a VP or do a roof edit, and VW hesitates, then shuts down, no warnings, no info on why. - within VP's - when annotating - I'll move something and it will only show the shadow outline of the object in the new location but still show the object in the first location, but it's not accessible. the oip does not recognize it at all once I've "lost" it.... would really appreciate some help!!
  10. Is there a way to define a wall type with a stone skirt and stucco above, without the stucco being added into the entire width of the wall? even with defining the top and bottom offsets, the wall thickness adds everything together .... thanks! stone skirt question.pdf
  11. Great thanks Michael - yes I'll be in Phoenix. will look for The Pat! 🙂 had trouble updating to 2019...have to stop everything and try again one more question - once the schedule is created is there a command that tells it to add the label to the plan or do I have to do that thru the OIP for each individual window/door? thanks
  12. Thanks very much "The Pat" and "The Michael" (yes, you too!) for all the great info in this thread - one day I'll hopefully understand and be able to implement it.. As others are doing I'd like to slip in a question or 2 regarding window and door schedules - is there ANY way to auto-label or if not, an easy way to label rather than thru the OIP (ug) or worksheet for each individual window/door? (or am I just being lazy?) editing right on the worksheet: easy to just plug in numbers in order, but then it would be a mess on the plan - no easy read or "pattern". I try to have window labels numbering upwards in a clockwise direction on the floor plan, for example...maybe that's OCD and crazy? doors, exterior - same, but interior doors, more random but try to keep a pattern of some kind. one more question - can I get both the ID label AND window size to show on the plan? for custom homes, the builders find that much easier. thanks 🙂
