Window Numbers in Elevation shown behind glass

Recommended Posts

I have been having a problem when trying to list window numbers in my elevations. Within my drawings I have two Deep revealed windows and once I give these two windows ID's they seem to be showings but behind the glass. Assuming this is because I have unusually deep windows. Is there any way to move the ID's in 3d to in front of the glass? Also I am having a problem where a part of the window number is gettings cut off. Anyone else had any of these problems?? 

 

Also as you can see in the screenshots below. (the two windows on the left are the extra deep ones, the other windows have part of the window numbers cut off)

 

I am using Windoors and VW2018 sp1. 

 

Thanks,

Steve

I think if you use the windows as plugin objects, you should be able to look at them (in plan view) and simple drag the tag /name/number in front of the glazing, which hopefully should resolve your issue, at least it did for me (ones ;-)

Hi Anton, I have tried that and it hasn't helped me. It seems the plan view location of the Window No doesn't move it in elevation.

yes have tried this also. I feel like I've tried everything! I have ended up just physically drawing them on 2d in the elevation viewport. Its ok if there are one or two deep reveal windows. But when there are 10 or more it gets quite annoying!

Months on, I figured out it. I had to Edit the Window Number Symbol, and make sure the Text was justified to one side.... Who would of figured.
