Stop erasing Window and door make and model

Recommended Posts

This a minor annoyance. When I'm working on the construction drawings I occasionally have to make a minor change to a window or door. Maybe add an egress check to it. Maybe add a comment that it needs to be tempered glass, etc.. Everytime I do this it erased the door/window schedule Manufacturer and Model Code number. Is there a way to prevent this? It should really only erase/reset this info if your changing the height and width of the window. The rest of these changes are options that should affect the manufacturer and model number. Maybe a lock option?

Change schedule to text if need be. Or open window in dbx select egress. For general additional notes change schedule to text.

      I design for a builder who uses concrete walls (Ritek). The builder wants the plans to show the window size correctly with the cutout 40mm larger all round. I see you can do this with stem walls. Is there a work around for normal walls? Doors are ok, I just make the jamb 40mm wide. This doesn’t seem to work for windows. The wall manufacturer wants to read my cad files, measuring the rough openings.  Any suggestions would be great, thanks

      I'm sure this is simple, but I can't figure it out.  I'm new to Chief Architect...
       
      How do I get the callout labels to be smaller, like 1/2 the size they are showing on the image I have attached?  I am referring to the appliance and cabinet callouts.  I can't figure out where those text sizes are controlled. 
       
      I appreciate all the help!

      I want to show a window schedule for each elevation only showing the windows on that elevation, what is the best way to do this?
      This way i can show the sq footage of windows on that wall exposure and have it totaled in the schedule for just that wall.

      There must be a way to alter or control the vertical spacing of schedules. I've included the exterior elevation view of windows in my schedule, and there's a lot of wasted space between each row.
      Does anyone know if that can be adjusted?

      I seem to be having a problem that I am at my wits end with.  It appears that my plan is showing double callouts for all my windows and I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of them.  I have tried deleting my window schedule and then inserting it again but nothing.  Has anyone else had this issue before?
