  1. One of the architects I work with wants all text to be in capitals. It would be nice if we could include capitalization in a text style, and it could be included in callouts, drawing labels, etc.
  2. I sent in a video. It happens when I delete a leader, then add a leader, and double click in the same place. If doesn't happen every time, but will crash by the 4th or 5th time, every time.
  3. I've found when I create a keynote and add a leader line, when I double click in the same place, (adding a leader on top of itself) vwx will crash. This happens in both 2020 and 2021. Very annoying.
  4. Brilliant. Thank you. Is there any documentation for that? Or should I not bother making data tags if the syntax is going to change.
  5. Not quite sure how to use <ExprIfTrue>@"<Condition> : <ExprIfFalse>". in a data tag. I'm trying to make a tag that will look at the area of a rectangle, and if the area is over 100, will say "too large". I tried =IF((#AREA#>100), 'Too Large', 'Too small'), which will work in a worksheet, but not in a tag. What am I missing?
  6. Is there an easy way to apply labels to a schematic view? If I create a schematic view from a hanging position, the schematic view shows the position name. If i create it from a lighting pipe, or truss system, it won't show a name. I've tried using data tags, #Lighting Pipe#.#Name# doesn't work, and #NNA_SchematicViewObject#.#Name# gives a value of 0. Any suggestions?
  7. Why don't the instruments in schematic views show data visualization? It makes the schematic views a lot less useful.
  8. Adding the zero to 0.5 makes it work, but it still keeps the units as square feet. Using VALUE(#AREA#) returns VALUE(150 sq ft). It works in the report, but not in the tag
  9. I'm not having success. I tried to calculate cost of sheet goods, where is would show #Area# *.5 (for 50 cents a square foot), the data tag shows '150 sq ft * .5' without doing the math
  10. Edit the wall style, and in the Insertion Options change the Top Bound to Layer Wall Height, and Bottom Bound to Layer elevation. If the wall is unstyled, you can change the settings in the OIP
  11. Ok, I understand how walls can change their appearance in viewports based on the detail level, but how does one assign detail levels to components? Where is it set that low detail level shows only the wall borders, but medium and high show all the components? Can this be changed?
  12. I would have thought the clamps in the 2021 Library would already have that.
  13. I like the new accessory process for adding top hats, etc to conventional lights. It doesn't seem to work for moving lights. When I add a clamp or moving light claw, it places it at the front of the light. I can re-position it so it connects to the base, but when I focus the light, it moves to the front of the light. How do we change the relationship?
  14. Have you tried data tags?
