Phased planting plan

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is there a way to include my plant symbols for one phase on the same drawing as another phase without the plant tags showing up for both phases? When I've tried a custom selection, the object info palette doesn't show the option. I don't know if my file is corrupt or if this just isn't an option.

Thanks,

Terri

sorry for the short answer, I was distracted with FOOD! Sorry very hungry.

As I was saying yes you can, as I understand what you are trying to accomplish. A phased plant list is very doable and If you need further help with is just send me your worksheet and Ill work it up for you.

Bryan,

Thanks for your response and offer to help me. To clarify, it's not the plant list but the plant tags on the drawing.

It's the class that's created automatically with the place plant tool: Plants-Component-Tags. When I select a single plant, all of the characteristics and options display in the Object Info Palette. I can change the tag display option to none for a single plant or grouping. However, if I select the first phase (or another phase) plants with a custom selection, only the layer, class and number of objects displays in the Object Info palette.

When I changed the class option to active only or anything other than show/snap/modify, I get the same results in the Object Info palette.

The new plants for each phase are in a separate class but on the same layer. I don't know if I can create a separate class for the plant tags for each phase that will connect to that phase.

I want to show the plant symbols for the entire project but only have the plant tags and plant list on the drawing for that phase. I'd like to know a more efficient way to do this that to select each plant grouping individually.

Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Terri

You can assign tags to different classes through either the plant dialog or the OIB and control the tag visibility that way.

For instance: Plants-Components-Tags-Phase 1 or Phase 2

Thanks for the suggestion. What is OIB? It sounds like this has to be set up when placing plants for the first time. Is that correct?

Terri, sorry i missed your response. Yes for the plant tags on screen you can set different classes as cdub suggests. Quite often I will design all and grey out the other phases in a viewport showing that phase, leaving the active phase in color.
