Update Cineware Settings

4dProof

would like an option to "match all", rather than tediously going through one at a time to update from basic.

What do you mean?

What's "all" supposed to mean in this context, where there is only one place to match from AND to?

Sorry, not getting it. 🫣

if I have 30 surfaces that are not set correctly in the cineware engine settings, and I need them to all match their basic/internal engine settings, I have to do match them one at a time. There is no "match all surfaces (from basic)" option.

Ooooh, you mean with multiple surfaces at the same time....

Well that's a different beast. I was just told yesterday that this a technical limitation and can't be helped with. 🤷🏻

yeah... those are the kind of answers we've grown to expect... unfortunately I can no longer tell my clients "if you think it should be possible, it usually is". I find myself saying "well, it sucks that we cant do that, we may need to use software xyz to supplement AC"
Busy trying to keep up with Revit structures seems to have left the actual user base in the dust
