misc help required.

Recommended Posts

we are having some issues in 12 and curious if they are addressed in 2008 - and / or if there is a fix - we are using vers 12.5

1. we have shared files / many users and have set up a complex set of references that seems to be working mostly well - two complaints / issues

a. when one goes to a design layer from a viewport the default layer visibility is active only - is there a way to change this - I cannot figurer it slows down production and editing when working with multiple refs. we can use views as a workaround but it is a hassle.

b. using the door tags as part of the door symbol is great - But I need to turn them off in some configurations and cannot figure how to do this without turning off the doors - this is almost a deal breaker as far as the utility of this tool is concerned.

also - we miss the page grid option for page layout - now one has to assign the size vs. just picking the number of tiled sheets [from vers 11] this was preferred, both options would be ideal.

any help or thoughts would be helpful

Not sure about v12.5 but in earlier versions the Tag is a symbol which can then be edited and assigned a Class other than default "None".

Assign a class to the label in your window or door PIO dialog box (ID Class field). With Info Editor (an inexpesive 3rd party plugin) you can do this en masse in one operation. Make that class not visible where you want the display suppressed.
