Drawings should be more than just information on a page, they also need to be graphicly enhanced to allow the human user to read the information without getting lost in the masses of text. Schedule graphics need some improvement in this regard. It would be much easier to read the shedules if we could specify that ever 'n'th vertical and/or horizontal line is a different line weight and/or type. Right now we do this by grouping the shedule with detail lines, however these detail lines need to be adjusted every time theres a addition to or deletion from the schedule.

 

Also, while I'm on the topic of schedules, it would be very handy to be able to override data on a per field basis. For example, door schedules: the door width for double doors is displayed as the cumulative width of the door opening (i.e. 6'-0" ) rather than number of doors and the individual door width (i.e. 2/3'-0" ). In this circumstance it would be handy to be able to provide a text override; room schedules: the room height is diplayed as an absolute measurement (i.e. 9'-0 ) whereas it may be preferable to see that it extends to the roof (i.e.  TO U/S ROOF) because the ceiling/roof may be sloped. These are just a couple examples; there are many other instances where it would be usefull to override fields.

 

Anybody else think these are good/bad ideas? Are there better work-arounds then the ones I have suggested?

 

Cheers

Yes,  this has been on my radar screen for years over on AUGI

I just want the simple controls I have in the garden variety database like MS Access.
