Can i do a window schedule for each elevation?

Recommended Posts

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.

Only include the windows in that schedule from that active floor via the schedule

Ahh, I missed the specifics. Thinking outside of the box I would probably modify the window labels to include the relevant information and drag the label to align as a sorted list on a side bar

You could accomplish this with a text and blank leader using macros as well which would leave the label alone

They're complicated. Don't bother learning RUBY unless you literally have nothing to do for weeks or months. BUY them. You'll feel fantastic about your awesome decision making ability!!

the area of the window is already available in the window schedule. However if you're looking to display the areas as it pertains to ABC 9.10.15, I can tell you that the macro is far from simple. I bought mine from @Alaskan_Son and I could never have come up with it. 

I assume that is the reason you'd like a window schedule from one elevation only. Here's an elevation that shows a customized schedule based on macros.

      Looking for a way to add window and door toppers for interior millwork.

      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!

      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?
