  1. Thank you both for your feed back. Electromen you hit the nail on the head. That's typically how I design as well. I guess what I'm after is being able to quickly click all the rooms with the outlets and know they meet code at the locations CA dropped them. Then as I dimension the drawing (after having drilled into the details in areas like kitchen, offices, built-ins ect) I won't need to waste time adjusting every single outlet in that room. It was a curiosity I had while drawings and figured I'd pose it here. I've been surprised over the years as to the tricks CA has built in that I didn't e
  2. Putting aside the other issues with Auto Place Outlets tool is there a way to adjust the defaults so that they meet the Electrical code here in California?
  3. @glennw Glenn, you are a wizard! I'm really curious why you thought to take care of those issues but so far that was the ticket. I deleted the first room divider then changed the wall to "no room definition" and that was pretty slow still it took about 60's once I changed the wall. As soon as I deleted the 2nd room divider the whole plan felt snappier. Even panning around in plan was smoother! Thank you so much! With that said I do still get about 2-3secs of the blue wheel when I'm working in plan and have an open elevation/perspective. Are you experiencing the same thing? Again a HUGE thank y
  4. Great, thank you so much for looking into it. I'm currently going through another file that was produced around the same time and comparing settings. So far I haven't found anything.
  5. Got it... here it is: Here is the link to the video... Sorry, a bit new to the forum. I thought I had done that. Should be good now hopefully. Here's the link to the Youtube Video... sorry I couldn't figure out how to shrink the size down. Tuck_As-Built.plan
  6. Thanks so much for that. I should have mentioned that I went through all of that first before I reached out to this community. It is the oddest thing. Got it... I'll look into those options to see if that works. I did have auto rebuild walls turned on which I turned off. It didn't seem to speed it up so I went and deleted the wall framing that was generated by that action and still no performance issue. Thanks again for your help.
  7. The following text is from a posted that has since been marked solved. The solution on that thread is about 3 years old and required a RAM drive using a third party download. As the issue I'm having is new after I've changed settings and only on this one file and my I'm curious if there is a different solution. [copied text from "SOLVED" post] I'm currently experiencing really long lag times every time I move a wall or other object. Interestingly though I've noticed that bumping a cabinet doesn't produce the same lag time (it's almost instant) UNTIL it meets another object like an
  8. Jumping back into this topic hoping someone found a solution to this issue. I'm currently experiencing really long lag times every time I move a wall or other object. Interestingly though I've noticed that bumping a cabinet doesn't produce the same lag time (it's almost instant) UNTIL it meets another object like an adjoining cabinet. I tested this by pulling the cabinet out into the room which resulted in a lag, then when it was in the room I was able to modify the cabinet by bumping stretching deleting and replacing like normal. Upon pushing that cabinet back to its position next
  9. If I'm understanding you correctly here is what you need to do: If you select the window/door schedule you'll see the "force renumber" icon which will allow you to do what you are wanting: Then you may want to move the order around on your plan which you can do by selecting the window/door you want to move and click the "move up/down in schedule" icon you can put them in whatever order you want (I prefer them to move in a clockwise manner). Alternatively, you can drag them up and down in the schedule by selecting the schedule and dragging the node up or down. Hope that helps!
