    edit - I also get two errors when I run it, although it seems to process everything even with the errors.

    I've just started preparing to switch over our text and have determined that some parameter results were coming up as null. This gets rid of the warning for people that care.

    Also don't forget to get rid of pull-downs in your script as much as possible. 2020 has added categories, types, etc. so try using by name if possible. You can use clockwork to get element types.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks, John Pierson for the pull-down tip and Greg for the original text style script.

    Well, I'm old enough to not use I, O, or Q, for grids--a legacy of when everything was drafted by hand (and that "Q" was complicated even with a Leroy set). Also, back in those days we all used diazio "resist" printing, so any blemish on the paper, or the printing paper would end up in the print. We uses sepia prints a lot, too, and the resolution of those could hadd "fuzz' to things that must needs be precise.

    This woudl be followed for lettered Keynots, as well.

    I'm alos old enough to have a habit of skipping over "13" just to avoid any issues by the supertitious. (Who might be clients, GCs, etc.)

    Back on topic, I'd love to be able to introduce Lexend. it's actually a scientifically designed font, brushed for best readability on screen and in print. It's slightly complicated in that t does not meekly follow typographic convention, but is organized more to need. Lexend Grand is a larger type scale that is not "bolder" nor more "expanded" than the non-grande.

    However, I'm far too well versed in "we've never dunnit before" stubbornness.

    For the curious, Lexend is open-source.

    Good looking font! I might have to have my Dynabatcher convert a copy of the Template to it, to see if i like it.

    That is funny.

    No question, all work on site would grind to a halt as a conseqence of the tremendous confusion created by the documents. Tremendous time delays, tell us what to do please.

    That made me laugh, thanks.

    This could apply to so many things currently but in general I despair of our country's tendency to over-elaborate - or maybe it is just the BSI - or maybe it is just me not being clever enough

    We use Calibri over here for almost everything. A few things like view titles and other titleblock info are Century Gothic. For most text we do Calibri 3/32". For dimensions we do 3/32" Calibri set to 0.8 width, and spaces suppressed. We even have our SpecLink spec software set to Calibri for specifications.

    We transitioned to Calibri back about 5-6 years ago, coming from that nasty old ArchiText font. I liked that font when I was younger, but now after using Calibri, ArchiText just looks YUCKY!
