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'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 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.

      I seem to be having a problem that I am at my wits end with.  It appears that my plan is showing double callouts for all my windows and I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of them.  I have tried deleting my window schedule and then inserting it again but nothing.  Has anyone else had this issue before?

      Hey All, 
       
      Is there any way to include the jamb width in a door schedule? For example...
       
      Door Unit is a Marvin Clad Ultimate CUFD 3070 S LHIS
      Door Frame Size: 37 7/16" x 86"
      Door Jamb Size: 1 3/16"
       
      Door schedule shows the width as 35-1/16...**37-7/16" - (1-3/16 x 2)** and I want it to show 37-7/16
       
      Is there a macro I can edit to act more like the widow schedule preforms?
       
      Thanks is advance,
      Austin

      Does anyone have some decent ideas to keep track of details? I'm working on a large home that has over 40 details. If I decide that a particular detail, let's say it's #5, is redundant or not required, that means I've got 35 details and their callouts to renumber????? 
      I've been calling out details from the cross sections in layout, specifically so I don't have to open each section view (which is so tedious) in order to place callouts. But there's no schedule tool in layout to make any sort of auto-numbering system. And no linking system from the callout to the detail camera (I like to keep them live) or to the CAD detail (which I use for less dynamic details).
      This is as bad or worse than the issues one runs into when using room numbers.
      Surely there is some system within Chief for actual architectural plans?
