PIO OI is Out Of Hand

Question

Could we see a default setting (or user assignable option) for the new door & window PIO's which always has "general settings" and "jamb & trim" set to open on creation (in the OI palette). As it is now, just to change the size takes a whole extra step (more than it used to.)

Thanks!

When you select the wall or door PIO, you can click on the Preference button in the Mode bar.

This shows the settings of the tool with all parameters expanded. You can input the information there first, then plop down the doors and windows as you wish.

This preference of settings for the door and window is set until the preferences button is pressed again.

Otherwise, you have to change the settings each time in the OIP if you want a window and door that is always different than the program default.

Which, I can see how it would be time consuming to change in the OIP each time you placed a door or window. BUt you should be using the above mentioned way. That is much quicker.

Hi Katie,

Note this method is only possible if the PIO is selected from a palette. Otherwise, if the PIO is selected from the Object/Resource Browser, the preferences button is not available!

And I think the Door/Window PIOs are not in a palette at the standard 'non architect' workspace.

The only way to change defaults then (other than editing the workspace adding the PIOs to a palette) is to make/edit a symbol set to convert to plug-in object...
