Mickey Posted February 15, 2022 Share Posted February 15, 2022 (edited) This is one of my "I hate Braceworks" moments. I'm trying to learn to live it, but it keeps making my life worse not better. So maybe someone can help a couple of items I keep running into. Scenario #1 I have drawn some trusses using Tomcat. In this case a bunch of plated 12". The vendor chosen owns XSF so I want to change the symbols in the configuration to XSF so I can see where beams and things line up. If I were using the weight calculation tools this would matter as well, but currently not. When I open the Replace Truss Configuration tool I'm presented with a lot of options and it shows me all kinds of lengths, but no mention of symbol. See attached. - Or actually not because I keep getting a server error with upload failed. Scenario #2 Very similar to above but not symbol specific. I have drawn some truss with 12" and want to replace it with 20". Again I can see options in the change configuration. In the case of the photo you can't see there are 2 2'. Is one of those 20" and one 12" ? Where did this 2'6" truss come from? In the old days I could simply "replace symbol" but there's no option for that. I respect what Braceworks is trying to do, but it is not making my life better instead it makes it much worse. Thanks for any help. Edited February 15, 2022 by Mickey 2 Quote Link to comment
