Why I hesitate to cusomize CA ussing Macros

Recommended Posts

Image 2 from PDF of printed and delivered plan last Friday window label correct. Then then Image 1 how that plan changed thanks to the new release of CA.

I have better things to do than go back and fix what was not broke, and now is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Window label macro not working like it did on Monday..... Fingers crossed that my little area of their sand box big enough to get fixed.......before XL

 

Before you ask, I can not send in Macro, it is another sandbox playmate's, I bought and modified..............

unfortunately, new releases can cause things to go bump in the night

 

best to inform CA's tech support as they try to minimize these "bumps"

 

while I advocate that most of Chief's tasks be doable without macros

the use of Macros can be very handy and "powerful"

 

my last career job involved heavy use of macros and editing them was part of the job

Lew,

 

I get that, how ever it seems to be a logged issue according to another thread. "top_elevation"

I had all ready started this one before connecting the dots of same issue, different use.

 

Thank you

Marc,

 

Replace all instances in your macros of

  owner.top_elevation

with

  (owner.header_elevation-owner.rough_opening_top)

 

The problem is that X9 fails to initialize the top_elevation and bottom_elevation attributes.  I reported this to Brian at CA and he acknowledged the problem.  It's in their court to fix it but in the meantime, using the above alternative solves the problem.
