Auto Story Pole

Recommended Posts

Is there really no way to edit the text on the auto story pole markers? I mean, I know that I can add text, but I really cannot edit the auto text that they use as labels?

 

For example, one of the main benefits when creating con docs is the ability to list the stem wall top as the grade level and then dimension from there for the excavation depths. The problem is that the default in CAX8 is to include the sill plate in the wall height. So it lists the top of the sill plate as the top of the wall, which throws off the excavation by 1.5". The inability to edit the auto story pole text literally makes the functionality nearly useless.  :(

Also, if I add text to the story pole, why is it automatically assumed that I would want the text added to both the callout text and the dimension line?

You can change the marker text in the Dimension Line Specification dbx...Extensions/Markers...Marker Style...Elevation Marker Text.

 

I have previously sent in a request to not apply additional text to the dim line and the marker.

Thanks Glen. I completely didn't notice the rename or double click capability of the specification dbx.
