Note Schedule-Notes populate in different scales in schedule


Recommended Posts

This has me completely perplexed. I have created several Note Schedules for my project and when I go to Layout, they are scaling at different scales (THIRD PIC) AND as in the FIRST pic below, Notes show up in the CAD DETAIL Schedule at different scales. The Bath Elevation is set at 1/2" Scale and the Note Layer text style is set at a 1/2" Text Style..


Regarding the Layout Sheet (3rd Pic).. The bath notes are referenced on 1/2" Scale plans and Interior Elevations, The Plan notes are referenced onto 14" Scaled plans.


Questions to Start:

1. How are schedules supposed to be assigned to a text style scale in the CAD DETAIL Space versus, The Note layer Text Style in the Plan or Elevation and Finally the imported Scale of the Schedule into Layout??


2. What happens if the same Notes are used across different scaled plans and Views? Such as a 1/4" Plan and a 1/2" Interior Wall elevation view?



Thank you kind folks for any light you can shed on this issue.

      Automatically generated schedules…items that are added to a cabinet box such as a wall oven or lavatory show up in the schedule but I cannot seem to edit/control the name like I can with a free-standing item like a toilet or fridge. I have tried opening the cabinet dialogue box for that item to alter the individual component data so that the output in my schedule says what I need it to, but aside from renaming the cabinet label and assigning the cabinet as a plumbing fixture I don’t seem to be able to have the right control. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or reference a topic where this is covered? I keep chasing my tail searching for any tips and can’t find anything specific to my issue.

      My Note Label symbols are scaling larger than the layer font for the note text. This causes schedules to come in much larger when dropped into Layout. Schedules are created in a CAD DETAIL page in the PLAN file then dropped onto a layout page at the same scale as the drawing view the notes are linked. Please help with this anomaly. I have included a PDF with Screen shots of a sample layout page, Schedule and Layer settings.
      Thank you for anyoone who may be able to shed some light on this issue.

      I am working on a residential renovation project
      The current house is a standard one level 40 x 24 with have a full 8' finished basement (not walk out) with L stairs to main floor . Exterior walls are Siding 4 and will follow upwards with the same
      The client has requested the following  revisions
      redesign main floor layout 
      change main floor from 8' to 9' ceilings
      add second level with 8' ceilings
      12/12 gable roof pitch with storage room and dormers
      I have done the revisions  but how do I note the added one foot to the main floor on my drawings for an engineer to sign of on to get the city building permit 
      Thanks in advance

      I'm looking for input on how to best use schedules in my .pln file and on my layout pages.  Per my screenshots, I have created several note schedules.  They are on separate CAD Details in my .pln template.  I have copied and pasted them to my .pln for reference.
      I try to put the applicable schedule on the layout page that it corresponds to so tradesmen don't have to reference just one notes page.  The preliminary note schedule is used just for preliminary work; likewise, the roof notes on the roof plan layout page, site notes on the site plan layout page, and remodel notes on remodel layout page.  The floor plan layout page usually contains the construction, plumbing, HVAC, cabinet, and trim note schedules.
      Is there a way to place the note schedules on the applicable pages of my layout template?  This would eliminate opening each CAD Detail and sending it to a layout page each time I work on a new layout for a specific plan.
      If there is not a way to have the note schedules on my layout template pages (before I save it as a specific customer layout), is there a more efficient way than what I am currently doing?
      Thanks in advance for your input.

      Guys, I am starting to find some of the limitations that I see discussed in the forums and am wondering if this is one of those. The current plan I am working on has various footing widths and depths specified by the engineer for the foundation walls. While trying to create a wall schedule that will show each wall based on footing width and depth and when I look at the available macro's under Object Properties for a macro I don't see anything specific to the footing depth. Anyone know if this property exists for a foundation wall?
