Electrical Legend/Schedule

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.

      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 have created a column out of Polyline solids and moldings.  Is there any way to get an outlet to place into this surface?  If there is not a way, what are your suggestions on what I do?  It is a dummy column framed out that surrounds a steel post, there is plenty of room for an outlet to be placed within the open interior space.  How do I place the outlet without there being a wall or a cabinet in this location?  Please see the attached image.  The red arrow points to where I would like to place an outlet.
       
      Thank you for your 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?
