Hi, I think an essential addition to the "Rules & Standards" for the
stair tool is a maximum height between landings. In my jurisdiction,
there is a maximum height of 3.7 m for stairs until a landing is
required (2.4 m in institutional occupancies.) ...
Is there a way to include a true/false variable in a simple IFS function
in an expression? I want to use the input in the Description tab of the
internal wood door to modify some values in my door schedules. Here is
the variable: "Door belongs to the...
Hi, I've been playing around with the curtain wall tool for wall and
floor framing. It's probably obvious to some, but some newer users might
benefit. Using the boundary method on a floor plan, you can easily
create a horizontal curtain wall that can...
Hi, I'm having an issue with a composite floor slab interacting with a
footing. The footing consists of a simple slab with a "Structural
Concrete" material. The floor slab is a composite with a 4"
"non-structural concrete" material and a gravel fill....
Hi, I'm just putting effort into learning to use schedules. For door
schedules, I would typically describe doors using both the exterior room

symbol, range symbols, etc. don't reall...
That usually happens to any object if the default settings have it
higher than the current storey. If it's nonetheless at the proper
height, the easiest solution is to simply right-click on the object and
hit "relink home story". This allows you to c...
Ya, I just noticed the buttons are gone, which is strange. Ctrl-A works,
but might not be obvious to newer users. Some of the issues you're
describing above aren't issues if you've got layer combos and favorites
setup. I think the folder/subfolder st...
I think it's partly about expectations. You're not going to get much on
a yearly update cycle. I like having small incremental improvements.
People might be less underwhelmed if it was called 25.2 or something.
For me, $100/mo (or whatever) is a reas...
