    Dragging wall points

    it seems to work about a quarter of the time and Ideally I would like to verify that the walls are perpendicular
  2. When dragging wall points, to connect walls, there should be an option to lock orientation, or perpendicular, specifically when working in rotated views, I have to draw a guideline in order to keep walls straight.
  3. Is there a comprehensive listing of these somewhere? I would like to create a data tag to label the slab style applied to a hardscape. I'm not sure if this is possible, but don't know why it wouldn't be? I'm not sure which category it would fit in I think I looked through them all, but search here would be helpful?
  4. Is there a way to prevent the site model from automatically updating? I a site model and a couple snapshots in a file. I accidentally changed the site model class and it took 10 min. to update. Then if i want to change it to show existing only 2d another update and 3d existing only, another update. If I could disable automatic updates I could roll all changes into a single update!
  5. You can use the new Data Tag Tool for your plants in annotative space in your design layers, this is the workflow we transitioned to almost as soon as the feature was released. We don't you integrated tags for anything after the introduction of the Data Tag Tool.

    Setting Default Linetype

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding, this solution may be too simple? Set the default (nothing selected) to by class and create classes based on your fills and linetypes, make sure to check the box under "Graphic Attributes" to "Use at Creation" then either draw on the proper class or assign the proper class, once the object is created.
  7. It seems like there are a dozen ways for a hardscape texture to fail, and only one very narrow way for it to display properly... It's good in the style material tab what about the style rendering tab What about the actual path that defines the shape of the hardscape, Maybe if that's all correct it will work, but sometimes it just seems not to... no apparent reason. It seems like there must be some way to streamline all this and pull it into a single interface... at the very least, if I apply a style, why does the class of the path still override?
  8. Pad site modifiers should also have a checkbox and texture selection for adding a texture to the modified surface. If I'm using a slab modifier, it probably as likely as not to need a texture different from the default. I use lumion with 3d grass, when I create a pad for a structure (house, pool, sidewalk...), I have to duplicate the path and create a texture bed modifier too. If not, grass will come up through slabs when rendering.

    Linetype images

    Somehow your linetypes on the left are smaller than specified in the linetypes I sent, or just long lines zoomed out? The problem I'm having, is that the text in the linetypes should be larger. Linetypes are setup with 6 pt font and none of the ones you're showing are close to that. I can't figure out how to make them any larger, either through image function adjustments or row height/row ratios. I think the lines your showing would be illegible on a printed sheet?

    Can you send a screenshot of how close you were able to get them?

    The font was the same, it's is a page based linetype using consistent 6 pt. font. Nothing that I've been able to do gets it to much more than half of that and pixelated in the legend on the sheets. Can you send a screen shot of what you came up with. I entered the values you shared, but didn't see much change.

    Thanks for trying to help, but the output remains unacceptable. The fonts in my linetypes is still too small - I checked and ratios of the fixed cell size don't seem to make the difference one would expect. Combine that with the low resolution and the linetypes are fairly poor and become essentially illegible once one begins to half-size a set for field reference. The image function in worksheets has a lot of potential, but needs continued refinement. It seems like the key will be integrating a vector format "image" for graphics like lines, fills and symbols.

    Thanks for the response. I spent 45 minutes tweaking the row height and changing every setting on the on the images tab without luck. Seems like whatever I do, the font won't exceed a set size and with the pixelation inherent in the image function, the linetypes are pixelated to the point of illegibility. Changes have effects on world based linetypes, but effects on page based linetypes are erratic.
  15. If I have a linetype set to page units, why doesn't it show up correctly in a worksheet? Is there something I should be doing in regard to "scale" my worksheet? I'm attempting to generate legends to match our drawings. Text in lines is illegible I've spent an hour this morning adjusting everything I can think to adjust.
