2015 schedule/tag nested family?

Make sure the nested families are 'shared'. Open them in the family editor and check the properties and be sure the 'shared' check box is checked then reload into the host family. Tagging should also work if they are nested. If it doesn't happen you can tab into the family to tag.

2014 Apply a type current - reload into project - watch what happens

Nice! I can't explain this behavior, but I think an exorcism can be performed. Try deleting that middle Reference Plane (top of the legs) and recreating it along with the constraints. This appeared to correct it, here.

2015 'Type Comments' for each item in a Catalog List, how?

I'm currently putting the name of each Detail Item in the Type Comments field so that I can simply (custom)tag that Detail Item and it automatically gets labeled. How do I achieve this when my Detail Items are already in a Catalog? (Beams, Angles, etc.) A formula perhaps?

2011 is there an easy way to trace roads on google?

I wouldn't exactly call it easier. But you could: - color filter the image to get better contrast between what you want and don't want - use an edge filter on the image to auto-detect edges and/or use a threshold filter - use Raster Design to convert the edge lines to AutoCAD entities

If we polled AUGI members about how many use an Autodesk product in its fresh-out-of-the-box state, the result is likely null. Truth is, the beauty of AutoCAD and other Autodesk products is that they are so very customizable, and users...

Stand alone viewer for sheet sets..

Sheet set manager is great with a small drawback. You must have AutoCAD to run it. It would be great to have a viewer for sheet sets. Kind of like the viewers already available without all the bells and whistles. Just a viewer so you…
