window IDs

Recommended Posts

how to i get the ID label tool to automatically label windows ( and doors) with the ID data from the window object. the rest of the field data gets pulled out. my window schedules then use the label ID instead of the data from the object.

The ID Label for Doors and Windows are already built into the objects.

When you place a Door or Window for the first time, or use the Settings dialog to make changes, look under the "Data" tab of the dialog. Select/check the box "On Schedule". This will activate the automatic ID label.

As an alterantive, just select a Door or Window and find, in the Object Info Palette, the "On Schedule" checkbox. Just below it are the other data fields related to it.

i don't have a problem with the built-in data. my problem is when i annotate my floor plans with the ID Labeler tool, I have to manually (auto-increment works) enter the Prefix and ID for each label. I would like the Labeler tool to pull the data out of the object so i do not have to worry about getting IDs mixed up (and save time).

on my version of VW (11.0) the data settings only have the On Schedule check box and two fields ( manufacturer and stock number). i have to use the Data tab to set the other fields.
