Lighting Schedule

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello Everyone, I have 3 questions about lighting schedule, and I'm going to make them here in one post.

1- How can I make the title text(in red) bigger without changing the header text of the individuals fields (in blue)? (see pic)

2- How do you Schedule the LED strip Lights? the ones that you buy by length.

3- I was changing the ID of L04 to L02 and the L02 to L04, but when I change the L04 ID to L02 they merge with the actual L02, because I have Merge Uniform Items active. I think this should not be happening, because the only similar thing they have at that moment is the ID, but they are not made from the same library part or anything. (I already solved this by giving L04 a temp ID and changing L02 to L04 and then changing L04 with temp ID to L02, but this is a silly workaround.) So my question here is, is there any way to set the criteria for the Merge Uniform Items option? That it won't merge things that I don't want?

Thanks in advance!

Ok, the 3rd Question is solved, I don't know how or why but it is working right now. Anyway if you know why could this has happen I will appreciate it.

Still looking the answer for the others 2 questions.

Thanks!

I don't think that Question 1 has a solution. Both rows are identified by the Schedule as Headers and so both are controlled by the Header settings. If you change the Text format of the Header, it affects both. They cannot be separately modified.

Ok, Thanks laszlonagy, do you know if this has change in AC20, I heard about some new things in schedule?
If not this has to be in the wish list. I think is a pretty obvious option.

Regarding question 2, I use beams and columns to model strip led and I schedule the length.
Alternatively you can use the area light and schedule one of the 2 dimensions (that one you set to be the length).

No, I do not know of any improvements in this area. The uppermost row should be called "Title" and should have its separate formatting options. But at this point it is only a wish.
