  • Thank you, Tiemen. I look forward to the improvement that is already in the works, and will file a request to extend the hover properties.
  • I have had this happen, too. All of a sudden, in the middle of some command, I might notice all 2D entity snaps are cleared. F3 does not toggle back to recover the previous state. I have to re-activate each one individually. Seems to happen randomly…
  • A belated thank you, Tiemen. The block replacement issue has been fixed, I believe, in one of the latest releases. Now my question is about how to control the precision of the net footprint area (or other quantities) displayed in the tag, separatel…
  • "Create Sheets" in the Sheetset Setup is only step 1 of 2. It creates the new sheet dwg with linked viewports as you have seen, but they will (usually?) be empty until you run BimSectionUpdate. You can run BimSectionUpdate on the corresponding secti…
  • I would love to find a solution to this problem, too. @DFLY said: ...we have to make new dwg files for each revision. This is a very repetitive task, especially because I have to "save as" each file and then re-link each sheet in the manager …
  • I'm not aware of a method to produce the result you have using only a single command or two. However, using a few direct modeling operations—maybe what you meant by "nip and tuck"—didn't take too long to make the desired notch. Then, once I'd done i…
  • That reasoning makes good sense. Thank you, @Tiemen. I wonder if one BIM section will be able to point to multiple sheet files? Also, could it be possible to encompass multiple generated view blocks in one viewport? For example, an array of relate…
  • This is strange. I do not find it documented but something has changed in the last 3 months since the online help for Elevation Hatch was last updated. Maybe it changed with v21 or one of the sub-releases? A few days ago I installed v21.1.06, and no…
  • In the process of updating to v21.1.06 (thanks for the notice @Michael Mayer) and having to redo my customizations my again, I dug into the BIM Profiles and figured out how to import csv files. Choose the Import button at lower left of BIM Project …
  • I would find it immensely useful to have both items that @Samuel is requesting—standard lumber profile libraries and how to import tabulated properties to add new sets of profiles without having to input each one individually.
  • Odd. Running same v21 version on Windows 10 and also with v20, I see the same error in cylinder volume. However, its surface areas appear to be calculated correctly, as do volumes for prisms and spheres. And (+ pi 0) returns pi correctly to 14 deci…
  • Each BIM Section has a "Generate elevation fill" option that I think is off by default for plan (horizontal) sections. Try turning that on (under "BIM" in the properties panel) and doing a BIMSectionUpdate to see if your Composition hatch appears in…
  • I see Shape betas and Communicator betas when I scroll to the right, but no BricsCAD betas. How do I sign up for those? (and I too would like to be alerted about sub point releases.)
  • The links are there, but look identical to regular text. Persistent flaw in this forum.
  • I get an X that moves to current vertex, and a triangle that indicates the start vertex. Same in v20 and v21, on Windows. If you look in the Properties panel under Geometry, polylines have a numbered Vertex property. Clicking on or changing that va…
  • So many good ideas here. I especially like what @Knut Hohenberg said, much better than what I had suggested about a quick way to maximize the panel: the need to alter the panel width or to scroll horizontally should be eliminated wherever possib…
  • Yes, I've seen the same in v21.1.05 on Windows 10. Seems to launch a little faster than v20 did, although I never timed it. But then upon opening the first drawing of a session there's a bit of wait before the cursor works properly, as you said. So…
  • Yes. That solution works! I had not remembered BIMPROPERTIES. Thank you for following up with that procedure. I expect I'll be exploring that command more. The _SpaceTag blocks that I had redefined by my convoluted method displayed the footprint ar…
  • Great to hear a fix is already in the works! Thank you, @Tiemen, I'm not getting the "Space Quantity/Net footprint area" to work just yet... Updating the _SectionTag definitions is a bit tricky. It won't let me simply insert and redefine the _Spac…
  • @Jason Bourhill said: Add access to Layer Filter Panel. Currently you need to open the drawing explorer to access. I second that. Here's another request: maximize. I often find myself dragging the edge of the Layer panel to expand it across…
  • @Eva777 , you should file a feature request for this. In June, I filed SR103614 asking for similar functionality with BIMWindowCreate. I promptly received a reply to my support request, which said they had added the feature to their development "ro…
  • @JurgenDZ This does look promising! Thank you for the quick start lesson. Very helpful. Customizations are project independent, so you can reuse them on all your projects. Excellent. And the ability to apply different customizations to diffe…
  • @Joe Dunfee said: The new forum Where is the new forum you refer to? @rose_barfield said: Hi Joe, Here's the "layman's guide" Imagine unlimited design capabilities – BricsCAD® V21 - New features for V21 Core A building d…
  • I was continuing to see this misbehavior, to a degree that was crippling our workflow, regardless of local or network paths. So I am elated to share that after much investigation (SR104177) the BC Support sleuths have identified a culprit: It s…
  • Your particular error is not one I've encountered, although I've had plenty of banging my head against the wall trying to get Projects and Sheetsets to work properly. For example, (SR104177) https://forum.bricsys.com/discussion/35975, which remains …
  • Check out the command options that give you more control over 3d constraints. For example, you can refer distances to WCS planes: : _dmDistance3d Select a first entity or specify [Use as/WOrld/BLock/selection options (?)]:wo Select referen…
  • Any news on working with formulas in fields?
  • @James Maeding I agree that there should be fewer fixed categories (and that drafting is an unhelpful term here). I always go to "Discussions" to check for new posts. I almost never use the "Home"/"Categories" link, and find it difficult to find o…
  • @Tom Foster said: ScottS are you able, as the design develops and elaborates, to progressively move objects from the Existing 'building' into the Removed 'building' (it remains in the same position in space). And to slice existing objects, so …
  • Others among us are struggling with this same question: https://forum.bricsys.com/discussion/35631 The approach I am experimenting with is to classify new and existing entities as separate "buildings" in BimSpatialLocations, in addition to managi…
