Reference Items

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to reference items from one floor to another, like referencing walls with the F9 key?

Turn on your Reference Display, select reference floor, select your desired reference layer set.  Save as a new Plan View and you can switch to it with a single click next time.  

 

You can also toggle your reference display stuff using hotkeys and a macro recorder to make it a single click operation.  Don’t have time to go over that one though.

You can only reference 1 floor at a time, a lot of people here want multiple floor references for referencing floors 1 and 2 from the 3rd floor.

That's not the issue I am referring to. What I want is, referencing other items, other than just the walls from floor 1 to floor 2.

Michael had your answer.  You just need to use a different "Reference Layer Set", one that includes the items you want to display.

 

Note that a "Saved Plan View" remembers the "Referenced Layer Set", including the referenced floor.

What is "referencing"? Do you want to see certain items, be able to snap to them etc?

 

Reference display is controlled by a layer set. You can change what is displayed and how.

Ed Zachary, thank you. 

 

To the OP,  These are the settings you need to familiarize yourself with...

      Do yourself a favor - get a copy of Get Your House Right.
       
      It is a map through the thousand design decisions you'll be making as you design a house. It is a dictionary of the Architectural Vocabulary our predecessors worked to perfect and articulate, and is your key to taking your designs to the next level. 
       
      You have to drive around this life and see houses designed by total amateurs, littering the neighborhoods and fields along the roadway - don't let your designs fall into this category.

      I am working on a project that requires the plan view of each floor to have a reference grid that intersects at each column.   Is there a easy way to do this where each grid has an alpha callout at the top of the layout view and numeric callout along one or both sides.
