I am creating some wall schedules to show some simple length and area values for a builder client. I have got them showing the column totals I want but noticed an odd thing. If I create a new wall it shows up in the schedule on a new line but if I duplicate a wall it shows up in the schedule as an existing wall but with double the length. It separates out if I change the duplicates length or angle but falls back into the parent entry if I change it back to match the parent. The element ID does not have any affect on this. How can I stop this?
Also as an alternative how can I group all elements of the same type into one line on the schedule? Ie instead of listing 20 walls of the same type (ie as per my complex or composite profile name) why can't the schedule just lump them all into the same line with a total meterage?
I've done some searches on this but can't seem to find anything.
