I'm curious about what ways anyone has been able to draw life safety travel distances, and then be able to schedule the distances. for example: i've experimented, as a workaround, using a property line to sketch my travel paths, but if it's not a closed loop, i can't schedule the distances. i'd like to have my schedule display as a table of distances from numerous travel paths. lines would be my preference, but they can't be scheduled. in ACAD it would be a polyline, with a total distance displayed. any ideas? how does everyone else do it?

Here's a way......workabound #1001!!! Use the railing tool and draw a railing from the door to the end of the hallway. Then create a schedule and pull in the lenght field and thats it. It's not nice, but it works!

People have joked at work that I would build my whole building as a railing system if they'd let me. I like that idea, but it won't work in my case because we put the length as text at the starting point of each exit path. I think I'm out of luck making a family that calculates the length automatically and labels the end. I would need some sort of sweep/annotation hybrid template. Noticing the "Chain" check box on the distance options makes figuring the distance "manually" a lot more bearable though.
