I am working in this file and the basement ceilings / main floor joists above have disappeared. I checked to see layers are on and now I am at a loss as to why they aren't showing up. I know they are they there because I can see the gap where floor joists should be.
Any insight or help would be appreciated!
Not sure if this is the correct topic area but for some reason, I can not figure out how to display the electrical fixture I just dropped in. Here are the steps I've taken:
1. create wall elevation (E4)
2. clip wall elevation in plan view making sure the fixture is well within the limits.
3. saved, exited, restarted .plan
4. added light fixture in plan view
5. opened elevation by double-clicking the callout in .plan
6. display opens sans light fixture
Sorry had to zip the file... didn't have time to figure out how to shrink it...
I am trying to figure out how to change the line weights of the 2D symbols in a schedule.
I create a schedule in a CAD detail, send it to the layout, and scale it to appropriately fit the page.
However, when I print the layout, the 2D symbols look extremely thick. How can I make the line weights of the symbols thinner?
I've tried editing within the schedule, and changing the text height to a smaller size (1"), which this works to make the symbols thinner, but then the text is too hard to read.
Also, is there a way to make a schedule have multiple columns?
can anyone assist me? I am trying to have a faulse ceiling at at 9'9" P.L. showing as the bldg. section shows that I have drawn across in 2D.
