    X12 update - loss of relinking referenced plan files

    I also am having the same issue. I have a plan template I use with all my general notes in a cad detail window that is linked to my layout template. (circled in red in layout pic) When I start a new drawing and I make changes to those general notes, I send the floor plan to my layout template. (shows two linked files - see layout pic) In the past, all I needed to do was to relink the new saved plan over the template plan (See pic 2 - second Sample plan link has forward slashes instead of back slashes). The general notes would update to my changes made in my new plan. But now it won't recongnize the relinking; it keeps both linked plan files (template and sample)

    Inverted Arched Window

    Is there a any way to create an arched window like this? The center unit is no problem, but I can't seem to get the units on each side to have an "inverted" arch. Arch Window.pdf

    Keynotes in layout

    Thanks for the info Larry. Unfortunately because of my black background, if I choose any light colors in plan view the 2d symbols in the layout print out light. I may have to settle for the darkest color I can still see in plan view.

    Keynotes in layout

    I will do that - when I have more time, just hoping to eliminate my inexperience before I got support team involved.

    Keynotes in layout

    Here is a pdf printout of the same keynote schedule. The 2d symbols retain some color even when printed black and white which makes them difficult to read when printed. I have experimented with different colors, if I use black text for the symbols (on my black background) I can see the symbol but no text inside. I need high contrast for poor eyesight and black screen for eye relief.

    Keynotes in layout

    It appears that keynote symbols in my schedules display in color no matter what settings are selected in layout. I use a black background and light colored text. Even when put into a pdf the keynote symbols print out very light. The rest of the schedule text is fine. Any thoughts The rest of the schedule text is fine. Any thoughts?

    Circle Window

    Yours looks like just a circle window with wider grilles and not 4 separate windows. Is that the only way to do it? And... My apologies. Is there a way to move posts once started?

    Circle Window

    Is there a way to create a circle window using four quarter rounds. I can't seem to get the top two windows mirrored below to create this look.

    Will this allow creating a macro to show the required s.f. area for daylight openings (8% of room area) and natural vent (4%)

    When To Switch To New Version

    When a new CA version comes out, how long before you exclusively use that new version for con docs? I am always hesitant to use it right away - just in case I run into a bug or some other problem with new features that alter how I typically do things. You can't just go back to x10 to finish up an x11 drawing when a software problem arises, correct?

    X11 Custom Object Fields

    Window and door schedules (which is mainly what I have the custom object fields for) show all the info as before. It is just in the new "open object" dialog in the library that doesn't show the values or allow me to change values in the custom object fields. That new "open object" feature in the library is something I'm really excited about and was hoping I could edit those custom objects directly in the library. Still very useful!

    X11 Custom Object Fields

    Is there a reason why the custom object field info doesn't show up in the dialogue when directly opening to edit from the user library? When I place the objects into a plan, the custom fields I entered in x10 all display correctly, but are not showing up inside the dialog of my library. I have also tried creating a new item with the custom object info and saving back into the library to see if it would show up - but it still does not. Just wondering if this is a bug or not

    X11 Highlighting fill

    Again the text displays correctly - but only when I select something is when the fill shows up. Just tried the select all - still didn't work. Maybe a bug or something, or an obscure setting somewhere

    X11 Highlighting fill

    That is what seems to be happening. I checked in the x11 layout as well - same white fill. I use a white background in my x10 layout and selected dimensions on the layout show a black background. Thanks for all the input I did try importing defaults as well as opening a completed plan I had done previously. Sample Plan.plan

    X11 Highlighting fill

    I changed the text, dimension, and window label text style defaults to transparent. Still not working. The white blotted out text only shows when I select an item such as window, elevation camera, dimension, etc. I keep trying to change different settings, but still can't come up with a solution.
