Hi guys,

I'm wanting to indicate that all panels within a curtain wall is euqal. Some curtain walls does show the EQ texts on ALL panels. However, there is a couple curtain walls can only show EQ text partially. Please see image.

If anyone knows how to solve this, please please advise.

 

Thank you in advanceSmile

I can't tell from the image but I would guess you have a Storefront rather than a curtain wall. Storefront walls are controlled by grid spacing rules in the type properties whereas a curtain wall is a little more flexible. Try converting to a curtain wall and placing your grids manually, this should allow you to achieve the desired results.

It is not a CW problem.  Try deleting that dimension and dimension again and set the dimensions to eq.

If you want all your CW panels to be equal size then the way you have dimensioned would not do this. The two end panels are dimensioned from centreline of the mullion to the outside edge of the edge mullion. In your situation that dimension would be 1066 + (1/2 * Mullion width). If you want to show EQ as your dimension text you need to dimension to points that would actually be equal.

marmiketin1 is correct, however an alternative method, but not necessarily recommended is to "Replace with Text" in the dimension properties.

 

Left click on dimension > Left click on dimension text you want to alter > in the properties dialog, click "Replace with text" > type in EQ > Click OK.

 

By the looks of your attached image, it looks purely 2D drawn of the curtain wall you want to dimension so the above method should be fine. If you are dimensioning the curtain wall as a 3D element, you will need to follow marmiketin1's procedure.

 

Hope this helps.
