    Thanks, Joey I was afraid that was the answer. Graeme, I don't think that will work for me.

    Is there an automatic way to make a floor truss like a gable end truss? The floor truss sits on the wall and is built with vertical web members similar to a gable end truss.

    Dimensions not recognizing wall widths

    My auto exterior shows wall widths. I often use interior dims to suppress the wall width. But you can select the dim & turn that on/off

    Wow, big government. It is always embedded in the model number but that may be a rounded off number.

    Closing the roof/ceiling gap

    I just had the same issue. Deleted the roof & attic walls & rebuilt the roof & gables were OK again. I lowered the floor below by 4" which may have been the culprit. Not sure though.

    Walls framing into Open Below Floor ?

    FYI Thank you for contacting Technical Support Services. Unfortunately, we do not have a setting right now that stops this from occurring. I will pass this along to our development department to look into further and possibly resolve in a future version of the software. I would continue to manually adjust those framing members that are too tall. Best regards, Technical Support Analyst
  7. I think I asked this before but can't remember the answer. The wall surrounding the Open Below room frame down into the floor area where I have a floor truss. Is there a setting that stops this extended wall? I have in the past just modified the framing in the wall detail but would like a better solution. Thanks

    Macro Question-Consolidating macros

    Just to be clear, using the "job_info" macro with all the global variables, do you need to execute it somehow? Or just having the macro in the macro list is enough to initialize the values?

    Macro Question-Consolidating macros

    So if I understand the request you would have one json file for constants like this: # my job constants $wallInsulation = "R-19 Batt Fill" $wallFraming = 24 and so on And include the macros like this? "UserDefinedMacro": { "Name": "Railing Exterior", "Value": "42\" Guard Rail", "ShouldEval": false, "Context": "none", "RubyAPIVersion": 1 }, I know I do not have the syntax correct but I have seen all macros in one json file. Perhaps I miss understood the request.
  10. The width is a big deal for me. That's why I use Arial Narrow for standard text & Arial with Bold set for most titles. Arial Black is a bit much but could be used in titles.
  11. That was a polyline solid with arch, not a polyline arch. Just to be clear. Pick the edit button & hit F1 for more info. You will need to scroll down to see solids edit info.
  12. Not sure it was available in X11 but I think it was. X12 has improved the editing.
  13. Personally I'm an Arial Narrow & Arial Bold fan Also, Arial Black if I need it to really pop.
  14. I used poly solids, columns, 3rd floor room divider walls with open below set.
