    Dimensions not recognizing wall widths

    Yes, "Suppress Wall Widths" IS checked. That was the problem all along. I don't remember ticking that box and I don't know how to change it for that particular Dimension Set, but at least I can fix it now by creating a new Set. Thank you Glen!!! I hope the OP sees this too.

    Dimensions not recognizing wall widths

    Well, thank you, Dermot and Alan. It must be something I wired incorrectly. I think I have the same Pref settings, and the string is finding the framing lines, but it won't display the wall width dimensions. It must be some tweak that I gave it that has come back to haunt me. I'll keep looking. TY!!!

    Dimensions not recognizing wall widths

    This question has been asked before, and I believe the answer is that you can't do it with the end-to-end or any auto dimensions. You can do it with a manual dimension, but only by manually dragging the little diamond modifier to the desired target. Having the little 3-1/2" (5-1/2") framing notations are very much appreciated by the framers actually building the building, but alas, no joy. X12 is painless and well worth it when you get a breather.

    Material Cost's?

    I don't think so. The "Master List" feature is pretty good, though Punch in a cost for a sheet of plywood for instance, and then add it to your Master List Then you can add it back in to any new list you create.

    Adding Object Information To Symbols

    Sometimes, if you drop the symbol into the plan (not in a cabinet, yet) you can access the Object Information field. Then place it in the cabinet. Worth a try.

    Adding Engineering & Construction Management Services

    If you find a way, please let us know. Even in the "residential" realm where an Arch. stamp may not be required, the place to begin is with your Insurance Agent, as the current fashion seems to be not covering liability for anyone without a "stamp".

    Print layout on different size paper

    On Page 0, select all the boxes, text, etc., and then select Transform/Replicate and Resize by a factor of .472. Should be very close to fitting on the new 11x17 sheet. Then just save as a new template.

    Cant see the stairs

    In Plan View (2d), verify that your stairs on on the layer "Stairs & Ramps" and that Disp (display) for that layer is checked. Next, verify that you are on the floor level on which you created the stairs. In other words, if you want the stairs to go from Level 1 to Level 2, make sure you are currently on Level 1. They will not appear on Level 2 until you create a "Stairwell" that creates a framed opening through the ceiling. Also, you must have a "floor" on the second level--not just the "attic". Hope this helps!

    Catalog flood vent

    Core Catalog>Mechanical, Electrical,Plumbing>Foundation Vents. May not be perfect, but at least a start?

    It is a little awkward because they've moved stuff around. The tools and settings seem pretty much the same once you find where they've been moved to, but for me at least, it all works faster and smoother.

    Yes, it is. And, seems to be working faster and smoother than the 2019 version.
