Auto Story Pole Dimensions--Almost There, Not Quite Yet

Recommended Posts

So,
I figured out how to move and get everything lined up, but my issue now is I am trying to get the story pole to locate the rough frame ceiling heights.  In the Locate Elevations, I have "top Plate" checked.  There is no "finish Ceiling" but the story pole keeps coming up with the ceiling location, not the top plate location.  I cant seem to pull a new dimension line off the story pole (clicking and dragging the diamond).
What am I doing wrong? Plan is attached.

Thanks,

Lane

You've done the double up again Lane , clicking the button again doesn't refresh the dimensions it just redos the Auto Storey Pole, without deleting the 1st Set of Dims..

 

Your Top Plate is there on the Right hand side.....

That's one I can't answer Lew , no prizes for guessing how I found out about this myself.....

 

Although they are Automatic Dims. it seems they must be manually deleted too,  as Edit>Delete Objects is greyed out....( for CAD>Dims ) at least in this Plan.
