  1. I think it has something to do with one drive. When I went to my $LOAD_PATH on my local and right clicked on tutorial > properties > file path I had a different file path than what was listed in chief for the $LOAD_PATH.
  2. I also found out that the default $LOAD_PATH was wrong.
  3. I finally got everything to work!!! Thanks everyone all your help! I was able to use Alaskan_Son's method. I couldn't get Chief to evaluate the macros for the longest time, so after much thought, I decided to restart Chief and everything works as it should.
  4. We have over 200 template files. If I placed them in every file and that macro changes, I would have to update every macro in every file manually. I'm trying to prevent re-entry.
  5. My overall goal is to create a macro in Chief to require a .rb file that is stored from a folder on a shared drive. I don't want to put it in my scripts folder that is connected to Chief because that drive (C: drive) is not shared. Instead IT is creating a new drive (Z: drive) for us, so everyone will have the same file path. There are many computers that will be opening the files in Chief. I need to be specific with my file path and it needs to point to the Z: drive I hope this helps. For ex: C: drive - not shared - where Chief is currently installed Z: drive - IT created - shared - this is where I want to store my scope1.rb - same file paths on every computer
  6. Thank you for the YouTube video Eric. Is there a way to define a new $LOAD_PATH to a different drive. I ask this because, I'm not the only one that is going to be opening these files. To my knowledge they all need to be "required" from the same file path.
  7. Evaluation Error: Ruby SecurityError: Insecure operation - require Stack Trace: from (eval):2:in `block (3 levels) in <main>' from (eval):1:in `instance_eval' from (eval):1:in `block (2 levels) in <main>' from eval:9:in `eval' from eval:9:in `block (2 levels) in <main>' from eval:3:in `loop' from eval:3:in `block in <main>'
  8. Are you saying to create a folder and name it $LOAD_PATH? I'm not sure what you mean.
  9. Joe and Michael I tried both of those approaches and I wasn't able to get the right output in Chief.
  10. Thank you for the easier format and the YouTube videos. You gained yourself a new subscriber! Yes I'm just trying to have the standard lumber lengths populate in the rafter labels.
  11. Initially yes, but for future updates I can just change the macro on the .rb file and it automatically updates the file when they are opened.
  12. Thank you Joe I will do some more research I this. I appreciate all your help!
  13. Thanks Joe The macro works in evaluated, just trying to take it one step further and save the company a lot of time. I'm am trying to read it from my local so I don't have to open every CA file and update them 1 by 1. We have hundreds of files.
  14. I'm trying to run a .rb file that's on my local in CA by using a marco. Right now I can only get it to read the file. Does anyone have any insight on how I might be able to to this or where I need to look? Macro: In CA"C:/Users - Desktop/scope1.rb") Output: from text stored on a local drive rafter_length = (length.to_f.round / 12) + 1 convert_to_int = rafter_length.even? case when convert_to_int == true resut = rafter_length when convert_to_int == false result = rafter_length +1 end
  15. Thank you so much for your help!
