Conditional parameters variation does not update automatically

Achille Pavlidis
Enthusiast

Hello,

 

I noticed the following: If I change the conditional parameter for ignoring the door opening surface area in a wall from the standard 2.00m2 to, say 1.00m2, this change doesn't happen automatically in the Schedule.

I have to delete the door and then re-place it after I make the change in Calculation Rules, in order for this change to actually appear in the Conditional Surface value.

 

Why is this happening? I think it is a bug

Are you regenerating (rebuilding) the schedule?

Maybe close the schedule and re-open it?

If it is the schedule view you have placed on a layout, you may need to manually update it as there has not really been a element change in Archicad, so the placed view may not update automatically.

Yes @Barry Kelly , I tried both closing and re-opening and rebuilding. It does not channge. And I havent placed the schedule on a layout.

The only way to get the correct value on the conditional surface area, is to delete and replace the door.

I would say this is a bug then, as the schedules should be using the settings you make.

You shouldn't need to delete and replace a door (or create a new schedule - I suspect that may work as well).

Please report this to your local Archicad support and see what they say.
