  1. Re-upping this request. The Ontario Building Code & the National Building Code of Canada has required an L shaped Grab bars for several years now. Also, an Ambulatory Water Closet Stall requires grab bars on either side of a Toilet, & ofter we include one that is a folding grab bar. Some tools need to have some flexibility built in, as building codes are alway evolving.
  2. After a rigorous double blind test** I would like to bump this request up. ** Double Blind as I was doubly blinded with frustration after 352 attempts to release the Dimension tool only to unwittingly gab a PDF underlay, typing an X and deleting both as well as one string of Dimension lines I had been working on only to have to UNDO to get back to where I was before attempting to use the Dimension tool. Good thing my UNDO/REDO is set to 400. 🙈
  3. Why do doors hinges swap? -or- Door Configuration Consternation If one plops a door into a wall & gets it all cozy but then later changes the KIND of door (in this case from a simple swing to a bi-fold) the hinge must be re-jiggered. I've noted this for years but thought it needed to be brought up. All that's been done to the door is to change the configuration.
  4. @P Retondo I feel your pain and 2nd your & @Taproot 's opinion. Like the stair tool, I just avoid using this thing as it's the opposite of useful and is a black hole for billable hours.
  5. @JuanP I get that this is an iterative process & I have no idea what's involved in getting under the hood to fix this. But from you comment, it sounds like VW can't "Just turn the old icons back on" for at least two more versions. Do I have that correct?
  6. Maybe these guys could help 🤪
  7. Not to beat a dead horse, but sheesh! Why are there two systems that don't make ANY sense for sizing stuff that should be identical? The font size in both instances are 6 point. A marker size of 4 produces a circle of 600mm or 4mm on the page for the Detail Callout that's generated from a Detail Viewport, but a Reference Marker Detail Callout is completely different with a 2D detail scale factor of 0.6. Also while I appreciate being able to change the Font size from the Font menu, seem like one should also be able to choose the font size in the OIP no? Here are the graphic output for a Detail Call out: Now here are the details for a Reference Marker Detail Callout object:
  8. It would be very helpful to be able to "Hide" a Floating Pane rather than have to close & reestablish. Even with two Screens, this technique would be especially helpful when reviewing documents in another programme open at the same time to maximize screen real estate. See attached altered image
  9. @EAlexander Thanks, one of those things I keep forgetting is available! I does in a pinch!
  10. Here's a pretty common UL detail. Thing is, I'd like to model it in 3D and the fills don't really show up & the column sizes will change on every project. I can use 4 sets of 16mm walls for the GWB but that seems dopey. Any thoughts on a work-a-round other than making symbols that need to be customized for every column?
  11. BTW, I'd also like to be able to see fills to a 3D object in 2D plan view as well.
  12. It seems that a 3D object when viewed in TOP PLAN always shows up as solid line. My wish list item is some way to make a 3D object drawn with dashed lines to show up as a dashed lines in 2D plan. I important for things like existing Structure, HVAC or proposed Furniture/Millwork; stuff I need to note & even show in elevation or section, but only roughly to account for the space an object takes up. As suggested in another post, this could be achieved as hybrid symbol, but that's a work-a-round. Not sure why if one draws a 3D object with dashed lines, they appear solid.
  13. @EAlexander Thanks I did consider this but this would mean every item would require being turned into a symbol & editing the 2D info when the size changes. I'll wishlist it.
  14. This wish is to make every object's graphics to be edited graphically. One may do something similar to a symbol now, where a double click allows one to edit the symbol. Here are two Examples: Doors: Elevation marker
