    We've been complaining about this for about 100 years now and very little has improved, in terms of fixing existing broken stuff, and making things more consistent. So I doubt much is going to happen in the next 100 years. @abshapi see this thread:

    Your experience is the same as mine - the closer you look, the worse it gets. It's become a familiar process

     

    Oh yes we have!  Forget new features - fix the ones that are tere.

    If you're trying to figure out the relationship between the height of the brace and the height of the flat,

     

    Was not trying to do that.  By setting bracing to 0 and face to 0, I was still getting the outside frame 🙂

  3. Hello all,

     

    I have a project that requires me to show how space use changes over time.

    I'm new to space planning and having a bit of a bear of this.  

     

    example:

    • Space 1
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Retail Use 1
      • Month 2: Retail Use 2
      • Month 7: Buildout
      • Month 8: Exhibition
      • Month 14: Tear-Down
      • Month 15: Vacant
    • Space 2
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space
      • Month 6: Buildout
      • Month 8:  Exhbitoin

    etc ..

    This could also be reorganized by time

     

    • Month 1
      • Space 1: Build-Out
      • Space 2: Build Out
    • Month 2
      • Space 1: Retail 1
      • Space 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space

     

    As a final product

    I would like a series of color coded plans showing Usage per Time Period

     

    It would great to be able to generate a worksheet from the same data to allow easier manipulation.

     

    Thank you

    Ethan

  4. Thanks Pat

     

    I have a unit with about 9 "Spaces" or "Areas"

     

    I think what you say is correct

     Probably the best way would be to create a custom record format with a field for each scenario (or month) and fill that in for each space. You can then use that data to either generate lists or to use Data Visualization to change the display attributes of the spaces.

     

    Over the course of time, the spaces will change use

    example:

    • Space 1
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Retail Use 1
      • Month 2: Retail Use 2
      • Month 7: Buildout
      • Month 8: Exhibition
      • Month 14: Tear-Down
      • Month 15: Vacant
    • Space 2
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space
      • Month 6: Buildout
      • Month 8:  Exhbitoin
    • etc ..

    This could also be reorganized by time

     

    1. Month 1
      1. Space 1: Build-Out
      2. Space 2: Build Out
    2. Month 2
      1. Space 1: Retail 1
      2. Space 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space

     

    As a final product

    I would like a series of color coded plans showing Usage per Time Period

    It would great to be able to generate a report from the same data

     

  5. we have all noted this for years.

    The new model of 'annual release' to justify subscription packages is the culprit.

    This - i belive - is  a practise started by apple wit the iPhones and has come to dominate the industry.

     

    Gone are the days when software could refine itself over years.  The push for new features now outways basic functionality; and we are all dealing with bloated software.

    Anyone wonder why Acrobat is over 1GB of code?

  6. Apologies if this has been asked and answered ...

    When checking layers in/out we are asked to make notes - which is great!

     

    Is there a way to see a running list of those check in/out notes?

    - Perhaps even linked to a design space object on each layer that shows notes relevant to that layer?

     

    That way one could track changes between updates (as long as there is good note taking).

     

    On that _note_ is there a way to simply show changes since your last sync?

     

    Thank you!

  7. yes  - there is the indicator on the top left of the upper menu bar.

    However - this is ONE instance where I actually want notifications (usually the bane of my existence).

    It would be incredibly useful to have a notification of when someone opens a working file, checks out a layer, etc ...

    This would really help i think 🙂
