  1. Guys, I am starting to find some of the limitations that I see discussed in the forums and am wondering if this is one of those. The current plan I am working on has various footing widths and depths specified by the engineer for the foundation walls. While trying to create a wall schedule that will show each wall based on footing width and depth and when I look at the available macro's under Object Properties for a macro I don't see anything specific to the footing depth. Anyone know if this property exists for a foundation wall?
  2. Ok, that makes sense that Auto Detail has filled in for some of those materials. Like the idea of creating molding profile fill pattern and adding to my library. Thanks again Rob
  3. Guys. I am still going through this trying to get it dialed in and accurate. I marked Ryan's post as the solution, thank you for the reminder. Chopsaw, I am learning basics of Ruby as time allows so hopefully will get these custom fields dialed in and schedules will be correct. Thanks again
  4. Rob, this detail is awesome and I have made this my next project to figure out and implement. I am having trouble getting the fills to show up. I have went through all of the settings that I can think of to make sure I have fills set correctly and I still can't get them to show. I turned Layers to All On and that didn't do it either. 1) Any ideas on what I am missing on the fills? 2) Did you manually label the 2x4 and 2x6, or is this a macro, or is this a label setting I am missing? Love that idea
  5. Ryan, this is awesome and very helpful. Thank you for taking the time to put this together.
  6. Anyone know how I can get the Fascia, Soffit, Drip Edge to add to the Schedule? I can't locate in the Category List, it's not under Roof Trim, in my setup anyways. But Frieze board, Gutter, and Ridge Cap is.
  7. Done, added snip of Schedule DBX to prior reply above showing the Schedule Label setting. Thanks Chopsaw
  8. Chopsaw, I did attempt to update my signature two days ago, see snip below. Apparently I am doing this in the wrong location though as it's not taking in the posts. Is your comment based solely on my signature? Also, I marked VHampton's post as the solution when I found it worked. Also, I provided my settings for the label setup that I liked the best, directly above your post
  9. Here is the settings I used to get the label setup I have shown;
  10. Guys, when a door or window schedule is created, it changes the label on each window and door to the schedule label. Is it possible to show both the Schedule and Size for the label rather than just the Schedule label? I have tried various settings with the Door/Window labels to get this to work and haven't found a setting that allows this.
  11. For anyone who runs into this same problem that I created, I realized that when editing a Cad Detail, you can also set the Line Weight Options for Cad Details in the Drawing Sheet Setup dialog under File->Print->Drawing Sheet Setup. When I changed the Line Weights there to match my Plan and Layout files, it fixed the Line Weights on my schedules and everything looks correct now.
