I have been playing with some of the new feature in 10 and have a few questions that I have not been able to figure out. It appears that the view of the grid lines in the sect/elev window is controled individually within the setting dialog for each sect/elev window. This however is confusing, since some of these controls are adjusted by selecting the grid lines and using the grid line settings. Does anyone know of a way to make changes globally to all (or selected) sect/elev windows.
I am having trouble figuring out how the grid lines is placed vertically relative to the position of the model.
Without making any changes to the default setting the gird lines were placed 50 - 100' below my zero elevation of story one.The default grid is based around the project origin, which is something that never moves in any window! Not to be confused with the user origin or the edit origin, the project origin cannot be moved and is helpful in relating/measuring your model.
In addition I have tried to find the control which will allow me to see my section markers in the sect/elev window but have been unsuccessful. A search of the help menu and the manual has not helped. I recall that this was supposedly implemented in 10 and am excited about the feature. Thanks for any help you can provide.There are other nice features for S/E's (such as continuous redraw, shading, story level lines) but I don't think your feature made the cut mate.
good news mate your dreams have come true, well at least 3 of them I know about:
1) ability to see grid lines / section lines automatically in section views whenever they cross reference
you can see them now even in the 3D window (perspective or axonometric)
I am not sure we are talking about the same grid tool. I am talking about the grid tool add on that to my knowledge, has only been in existence since AC 10. You need to download this from the graphisoft web site since it does not ship with the CD. This is different from the Structural grid that is internal to archicad and a single placed grid shows in floor plan, 3d and section views.Oh I see now. I thought you meant the main orthogonal/skewed grid. I am glad to see the Grid tool made it even as far as the Goodies - wasn't too sure how far it had come along.
I guess having section markers show up in other section views was too good to be true. I read this post on another thread and assumed it to be trueNo idea what Rob is talking about. Maybe he can show us how to do that!
