    Nesting and sharing the frames lets you switch between different frame types by door in the project. For example sidelites, transoms, masonry head frames, hospital stops, etc. We use that parameter...

    This also works well for things like L-shaped countertops to put the grip at the object and not at the center of the family.

    If you're using it to drive a yes/no parameter, the simpler version is this:

    or(parameter < 150 mm, and(parameter> 200 mm, parameter< 250 mm))

    If you want specific values or parameters, the...

    Do you actually need them to be 1 parameter, or just display that way? You can combine the fields in both schedules and tags, so graphically it will still read as 1.

    It is an instance parameter. It is only assigned to views. It's a shared parameter as well, but I tried a project parameter as well and it behaved the same.

    That's the problem, the string from object is just returning the parameter name, not the value. the ANNO-096 part is getting lost somehow, and that's what I'm trying to get out.

    Hi all,
    I am trying to pull a value out of a view parameter that I've added as part of a view template. This is a script that will create views based on scope boxes in the model and an...

    We're looking at Plangrid right now for that. It's built around the mobile interface.

    This is exactly what we do here and it works pretty well. The only issue I've seen is it also overrides phase settings, so existing equipment/ductwork/air terminals will show black as well.

    I typically break them at every floor regardless and join them as needed if the same framing is actually bypassing the slab. Walls like to join to other walls and wrap corners, and that gets messy...

    You can add a reference plane at the midpoint with EQ constraints to the top and bottom. Then you can lock the diagonal line endpoints to that reference plane and it will stay equal.

    We show separate frame type legends on projects that have sidelites and/or transoms. If all the frames are the same configuration, there's not much benefit, and the widths are covered in the details....

    That doesn't let you adjust the size of the text box though, only show where it is. Do you have a way to add a grip to that?

    Aside from the length of text being editable in the project, you're describing generic annotation and note blocks. As far as I know, there's no way to edit the length of a label or text field without...

    the ones that go in the view usually associated with a matchline. I know the view title can't be touched, but that's one per sheet. The view references can be 6 or 8 per view, so a little more time...

    View reference tags

    We're starting to look at automating view and sheet creation here using dynamo and it seems like one of the sticking points with a few people has been placement of view reference tags on sheets. Has...

    I've seen this "trick" posted before and I still cannot think of any reason to actually use it aside from maybe using a formula to lock a yes/no parameter in a family. Since yes/no parameters only...

    This is what I typically do as well. Easier to manage if a door needs to move.

    I'm not totally sure what you're trying to accomplish either, but you can tag objects like ceilings and other elements based on their offsets from the level. Our ceiling tags for RCPs have an...
