Setting up the Door or Window List as a View

Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2011

When setting up a Door or Window schedule for the first time using the Interactive Schedule it is important to know that you should save the Door or Window List as a View. When the Door or Window List is viewed as a view one can control the output scale, especially considering the setting out of the schedule on paper.

The one way to save the Door or Window List as a view is to right-click on it in the Navigator > Project Map and then select the option "Save Current View...".

This will open the Save View window

You will find the Door or Window List at the bottom of the Navigator - View Map.

The other way is from Navigator - View Map > click on button towards the bottom of Navigator called "Clone a Folder...".

This will then open up the "Clone a Folder" window > scroll down the list and double click on Schedules to expand > click on Element (Note: under the General tab - Scale: is blanked out and cannot be changed, don't worry about this as we can change this later).

Select "Clone"

You will now see the view "Element" at the bottom of the Navigator - View Map. Expand the "Element" View and select Door or Window List then click on the button at bottom of Navigator - View Map > "Settings..." Under the View Settings > General Tab you will now be able to set the "Scale:, Pen Set:, Model View Options: etc. At this stage 1:50 would be recommended. One can also change the "Name:" by changing the button from "By Project Map" to "Custom". Then it is also a good idea to change "Dimensions" at the bottom to your preferred method. In this instance I prefer "Plain Millimeter".
