Show Door/Window Heights in SIA Dimensions

Tim Harland


IN the German version of Vectorworks it is possible to show the heights of doors or windows directly in associative dimensions (see the video here for a demonstration). When selecting the SIA Dimension type the Height of the openings is shown greyed out in the dimension info box but there is no way to get the dimension to show this information. That is very confusing for our users as they can see that the dimension recognises the height of the opening but can't work out how to get it to show up. 


We have a work around using data tags but that is a bit clunky especially when you adjust the offset of the dimension line. It feels like this would be a positive development for intelligent models especially seeing as there is already a tool available in a localised version.
