Multiple window/door labels showing on plan & elevations

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Can anyone explain why I have 2 separate numbers/lables showing for each window & door on my plan view & elevations? I've tried renumbering the schedule, deleting & recreating the schedules, etc, but no luck...

 

Cheers, Nathan

Deleting the window schedule removed 1 set of extra numbers/labels but not the rest. I'm wondering if there's a couple of "hidden" schedules on my plan...?

I'm not sure why the problem occurred but at one point I had up to 3 different numbers/labels showing for some windows & doors (but not all).

Each Schedule in the Plan will result in a set of Labels.

 

Maybe you have a Schedule on another view or in a CAD Detail.  IAE, there must be more thatn one schedule in your Plan File.

That's what I've been thinking... there's another schedule somewhere...

 

I might have inadvertently changed the layer for the original schedule while preparing the working drawings. Have tried switching-on all layers but it's still not appearing.

If you change your "Schedule To Text", it will no longer update any changes.  Is it possible this is your problem??

Also if you had put your schedules in a cad view it will still update and is live.

Check any and all Views, including extents with all Layers turned on:

 

Plan Views (all floors, including foundation and roof)

Elevation Views

Section Views

CAD Detials

etc.

 

IOW, everything in the Project Browser

 

Make sure you turn on all Layers and zoom to extents.

Hi guys,

 

Firstly thanks for all the responses, this issue has really been doing my head in...

 

I just changed the schedule to text & this has removed the extra window & door labels (thanks Alaskan_Son). I think I can work around the issue now.

 

Cheers all

      Wondering if there's a way to drop the '0' which is generated in front of the schedule numbers. It adds size to my labels and most of the time there are less than 10 items so it wouldn't be confusing - but I haven't been able to find any options where we can omit this automatically generated zero.
       
      Anybody have any tips or insight?

      Hi, I'm working on CA x10 Interiors.  I have a kitchen with high ceilings and stacked cabinets, but can't figure out a good way to have all the cabinet nomenclature/labels to show in plan.  If I fudge it in the plan, the elevations expose my work-around.  I'd like to see both layers of labels in plan--any way around this other than manually moving each cabinet layer's label?  I suppose manually moving the non-displaying label elsewhere in the plan may work...Many thanks. Scott

      It seems if the window schedules can calculate the rough openings by adding the 1/2 inch to the unit size... or whatever I set up in the framing option to be...  there's got to be a simple way to display the R.O. at each window... but how?
       
      I know nothing about Ruby stuff nor creating text Macros. Do I need to use one of these? If so, how? I have no idea what to do! And three calls to CA tells me they aren't going to help. I'm rather frustrated!
       
      I've seen a couple posts and even some code on a post and thought I would be able to make changes to it to get the outcome I want - but no luck. I'm doing something wrong, I guess. 
       
      Here's an example of how I'd want the rough opening displayed (under each window)... R.O. 3'2 1/16" x 6'0 7/8"
       
      In addition to the R.O., I'd also want the Andersen window name/code above, or below, the rough opening. Adding their specific window name/number is my next issue. Well... that, and figuring out how to get all their sizes/windows in the system!
       
      Following is the code I found. If this is the code I need to use... can someone tell me how/where to apply it?
       
      number = height + rough_opening_top + rough_opening_bottom
      divisor = 1/16.to_f
      a = ((number/divisor).round*divisor).divmod(12)
      feet = a[0]
      inches = a[1].floor
      if a[1].modulo(1) == 0
      fraction = ""
      else
      fraction = " #{a[1].modulo(1).rationalize}"
      end
      "#{feet}'-#{inches}#{fraction}\"".reverse.chomp("-'0").chomp(" 0").reverse.chomp("-0\"")

      Can anyone tell me how to add more labels in the app? I merged a couple of rooms and now seem to have only one label but still need to show the other rooms (and sizes. Sf or dimensions - but this might be asking too much). Thanks
