Recommended Posts

You have two schedules one on Floor Plan: Floor 1 and one in CAD details WD Schedule

 

Delete one of them

I haven't looked at the plan, but generally multiple labels means you've got multiple schedules. Delete one.

NEVER put dimensions in the Layout. There is no way for dimensions in Layout to select anything in a .PLAN file.

The blue box is just showing you the area that's going to print (printer margins), but will not print.

Thanks, I gave ya both +1s :)

 

Did that CAD detail auto generate I don't remember creating it or maybe I did an old template, forgot!...... Is it better practice to put schedules in a CAD detail?

No, it does not auto-generate.

It is a matter of personal preference, so you may get different opinions.  The benefit of having a detail is that you can place it anywhere in the layout and multiple times. You can move it when your plan may or may not completely fit the layout page.

Personally, placing schedules in CAD detail. But I'm not the Expert. I did like you  once upon a time, and wound up with multiple labels, because I had placed a schedule on the plan and in a cad detail. I like the CAD detail myself.

You can do all that anyway.  Just send multiple cropped plan views.  Easy peasy.
