There is a Field (Column) available to the Schedules that report the "Type" and the "Sub Type" of Objects in the Plan file.
The Data these Fields contain is inconsistent across different Object Types
In this example, out of 221 Unique objects, 79 of them have a default "Type" field with data created by Chief. 142 of them do not have data in the "Type" Column.
Admittedly, some of the null records have more than one Type of object.
Obvious omissions are: Appliances, Electrical and Plumbing Fixtures, and Lighting. There are some more.
The questions are
1. Why is this a partial list?
2. Is there a way to open up the data in a Global way so hundreds could be updated simultaneously?
These Object "Types" should be modeled after the Tree Structure in the Library. Obviously Chief knows what type of objects these are.
In this Schedule the Field "Object Type" is Custom and Populated Manually.
