Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Does anybody know why the 2D symbols in the Electrical Legend/Schedule showing like this after exporting it to the CA save to PDF?

Thanks

 Somebody give this guy a point^^^.   That was a really good answer.    On a similar note, can anybody tell me why walls are like they usually are?   I know I’m not giving you anything to go off of but  you guys don’t have anything better to do right? Let’s hear your best guesses.

 

Seriously though, if you want help you’re going to have to give us more information than that.  What are you expecting to see?

Alaskan_Son, what more information do you need?

the 2D symbols look smudged, also they look like that when printing the Arch D sheet.

 OK, now that’s something to go off of. You want to know why the 2D blocks look smudged.   Your problem is that the line weight being used for those objects is too thick.   I’m away from my computer right now and I can’t remember off the top of my head what controls those particular line weights.  I want to say that it’s the layer for the objects themselves though. Try putting that schedule into a CAD detail instead of the plan and then change the line weights for that electrical layer in the layer set bring used for the  CAD detail.  You could probably do the same thing in your plan view but then your electrical objects are also going to display differently. 

 

 Anyway, give that a shot. If it doesn’t work I’m sure somebody else will be along to help you out or maybe I’ll take a look when I get back to the office.  One way or another, it’s definitely a line weight issue.

      Hello, Is it possible to create a ceiling assembly schedule in CA? I could not find one, nor an option to assign to a custom schedule. Any tips?

      We have limited space on our layout page and more pages than can fit. I cannot seem to find a way to do columns. The only option is to shrink the font but that will not be an option as the city requires a minimum font size. All I can come up with is to do a manual text box. This seems like there should be an easy solution to this as I know plan sets that are 60-80 pages and you would need multiple columns to show all the pages. Thought?

      Hello,
      In one of my basement floor plan, for some reason the door number is displaying 2 numbers. I don't where is this coming from. Just to clarify there is only 1 door in that location. In the door schedule there is only one number for that door. I try to delete that door and inserted it again. I try to insert a new door at a different location, that new door also is displaying 2 numbers. Kind of crazy. Any help?? see attached image

      Good evening everyone, hope you are all well! I have had this problem for awhile and I have searched the forums for this issue before. The living room shown in the jpeg is a 2-story height space in a tiny home (84" first floor, 60" Loft). I want to have the electrical layout displayed on the ground floor and also have the recessed lights in the vaulted ceiling in the floor above. The problem is the vaulted ceiling is drawn on the 2nd floor. The obvious workaround is to draw these fixtures on the 2nd floor, CAD to detail, and copy them as a separate layer on the ground floor. It is important that the client sees the lights in relation to furniture, cabinets, etc. Let me know if it is possible to combine the first and second floor into one room in the living room. As you can see in the photo, the ceiling is registering only 84" above the floor. Thanks!

      Hello everybody. I have recently made the jump from the Home Designer Pro series to Premier X12. I have a client that wants the windows to be labeled with letters instead of numbers. I have not seen a way to change that but am I missing something?
