Schedule Spacing

Recommended Posts

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?

May or may not be an acceptable solution for your situation, but you can try unchecking Scale Images in the Window Schedule dialog

Tried that. Each unit fills it's allowable space better, but the wasted space remains the same.

The height of those rows in controlled by the width of the column.  If you make that column narrower, the rows will have less wasted space.

That's the extent of the control that I found. I changed the name. Would you agree that there's a fair bit of wasted space between rows? I'd like the sliders to control rows like there are for columns.

Ya, I definitely agree that we oftentimes have quite a bit of wasted space.  It would be nice to see a bit more control in this area.

Rob you may need to shorten your column heading a little more or allow it to use two lines so the other rows will take less space.

      I was wondering is there a way to rename a symbol so that the name appears in the schedule will be as required rather than the CA symbol name. eg. 2 way ceiling register, I want to rename it as supply air to reflect in my schedule. Is it possible? Any suggestions how i can achieve that?

      I am trying to figure out if there is a way to make a framing schedule for the entire project, and not just wall by wall. 
      We are finding that framing schedules do a better job listing out the members and sizes then the material lists. 
      Thoughts/suggestions?

      I am looking for a solution on how to insert schedules into Layout. I have tried converting the schedule while in a Plan to a Cad block and then inserting into layout by Copy/Paste, but this deleted the Note # specific to each line item and I would then have to manually add them for each line item on the layout page.
       
      Here is a picture from a Chief layout where I have blue circled the schedule showing that Chief has inserted it into layout. Any ideas?

      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?

      I'm having trouble with the column width on schedules. I added and deleted some columns, set to auto height and width and all except the comments column size properly.  I have tried searching help etc., and haven't found any information on this problem.  I believe my computer recently updated windows 10, could this be a factor? Have tried restarting as well
