We have limited space on our layout page and more pages than can fit. I cannot seem to find a way to do columns. The only option is to shrink the font but that will not be an option as the city requires a minimum font size. All I can come up with is to do a manual text box. This seems like there should be an easy solution to this as I know plan sets that are 60-80 pages and you would need multiple columns to show all the pages. Thought?

You can have multiple page tables. A bit of creative masking ... ?

Ya, maybe laying setting things on different drawing groups with white boxes? Seems unnecessary for what seems to be a simple problem.

I think Eric means sending the table to the layout twice, side by side, and covering the bottom half of one and the top half of the other and adjusting their positions to match. If not, my apologies to Eric.

Instead of placing that Layout Page Table directly onto a layout page, place it in a CAD Detail in Layout, and then send that CAD Detail to your layout page (from layout to layout).  This makes it very easy to simply copy that view and reposition/crop the layout boxes instead of having to meticulously mask ask adjust drawing order.  Here are a couple quick videos I made a little while back showing the method I typically use for this type of thing...

      I'm trying to send a Kitchen Island to my Layout in 2D without the other cabinets being in the elevational view. Is there a way to do that?

      Hi everyone,
       
      I seem to be having some trouble with the way a layout displays when I send it to a client. My assumption is that when I send the layout, and plan file all items should appear on the layout upon opening. Please note, I do have imported files in the layout, but I ".zip" everything with the layout and plan in the same file, so all items are together. However, some items on the layout still do not appear, is there something I might be doing incorrectly or need to add/lock to the layout?
       
      Many thanks!

      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 like to use Line Style renderings for my concept sets - and have noticed that when i use them the backgrounds print out black. This when I have them set to 'live view - update on demand'
       
       
      I export using the chief pdf exporter - then open in Preview and the backgrounds look white - then I print and they're black.
       
      I have checked the background of the line style viewports, and have even specifically set it to a 'white' background.
       
      In the chief menu, I have selected and changed all my window and colors to white as much as possible even, and no change.
       
      When the pdf is exported from Preview, after the export from chief, and made into JPEG files for each sheet it will print correctly.
       
      Trying to figure out what's going on - pretty sure it's not my printer - and i've tried printing from other PDF readers and no dice. Also, if I print from the 'mac print dialogue' and use the native pdf exporter, the files come out without the black background, but there are other issues (different thread I suppose). 
       
      My hunch is that it's somewhere in the chief achitect PDF converter, maybe specific to mac computers. Anybody else having this problem? It has been posted about before but never saw resolution.
