  1. My doors are inserting with height -2". Where is this setting?
  2. Friends - what're you guys doing at areas like these wall intersections where the automatic floor slab somehow errors? These are intersections between full-height & partial height (parapet) walls. For some reason, the floor slab follows the 45 of the wall joint and makes a weird triangle. If you DONT join the walls, the slab tool doesnt work, if you DO join the walls, well, the slab tool doesnt work...
  3. Art, yeah that's easy if you have objects. I used that tool daily in Acad for schematic level stuff, and for getting room sizes right
  4. I do too, but sometimes you just want a quick measurement during schematics - like how big is half of a room?
  5. like the tape measure, but for area. Polygon, fill etc...
  6. We interchange these on drawings all day long. Annoying to have to check the box and go back & forth. Can it be 2 separate tools please?
  7. Anyone else having this? When I add a new callout in VP, the page-display radically increases in size and all dimensions change. Using the eye-dropper to put them back doesnt fully do it either. WTF?
  8. Parking space tool no longer works right in 2020. This space was drawn in 2019 and behavior is duplicated for me in 2020 across files. Accessible space has its Aisle width added to the space width, then the aisle shows on end.
  9. In theory. I've been trying to get it to work for a year without much luck.
  10. attached below @Marissa Farrell WallTest.vwx
  11. Playing around with Data Visualization a bit more, for some reason even with boxes unchecked it appears to be overriding pen colors? The two walls shown should have identical pens. One has a 2-HR rating w/ visualisation shown. I have not checked boxes for pen over-rides yet theyve changed from red to black? thanks
  12. @SMannVW, Thanks so much for that. The video I took my screenshot from showed pull-downs for fire & acoustic ratings. Do you know how to achieve that?
  13. Well, this video showed me something I've been dying to do - how to properly tag walls for fire & acoustics!? How oh how pray tell does one specify Fire Rating and STC for walls, doors etc? This is SUPER useful to be so buried. Is there a tutorial for all this I've missed someplace? Thanks
  14. It would be great to specify other than Story Above for stairs. Useful for split level buildings, or stairs from random grade elevations up to story heights.
  15. Thanks - I wound up doing Method 1. Still a lot of cleanup, but it got it done.
