Door Window Style ID Tag Change

Recommended Posts

How do I change the ID tag on a door or window, without converting to unstyled? Currently all the instances of a particular style of door have the same ID tag! Not helpful. If I go into the settings for a particular instance, the ID tag options are greyed out....If I convert to unstyled, that defeats the object of having pre-prepared styles that can be edited across the project easily e.g. if Client decides to have a different shaped vision panel in the front doors across a series of houses, or we have particular product data to update the style with later in the project. I'm trying to generate a door schedule too.

Go to the particular window style in the RESOURCE MANAGER and EDIT it.  Under the ID Tag tab set the "Label" to the little slider icon which sets that particular field to "by instance".  Then close up the style editor.  Now go to the design layer and choose a window and you'll be able to change its tag separate from any other window as it is now set to "by Instance"  See attached screen shot


Doors work the same way...
