The Schedule tool can be used to create a table in your file detailing all selected walls, windows, doors, and/or slabs.

Note: The Fill Schedule Wizard is another way to add a schedule, that scans for objects on specific layers. See |#Rure13793.

Note: If you want to save styles to a template, see Savings as Templates.

  2. You can change the "Standard" style, but if you want to preserve this style, make sure "Standard" is highlighted, then click Create New Style.

  3. Assign a name or accept the default.

    This creates a new style which is a copy of "Standard."
  4. Highlight the new style, and open the General category. This is where you can define the schedule title.

  6. To specify the columns, click the Value field next to Columns.

  11. Open the Schedule tool's Properties to the General page.

  14. First click the schedule you want to add to, then select the windows and doors to include. Use Shift to select multiple objects, or use a selection window.

  15. When finished, select Finish from the local menu or Inspector Bar. The windows and doors appear in the schedule.

  16. If you want to remove objects, use Remove Object from Schedule. All schedule objects are highlighted; select the windows and doors you want to remove. Select Finish, and the objects are removed from the schedule.

Fill Schedule Wizard

The Fill Schedule Wizard enables you to scan your drawing for objects to include in the schedule; you do not have to select objects manually. The wizard scans for specific types of objects on specific layers, which is useful for large drawings which may have objects on invisible layers, or in which slabs are not easy to select because of multiple floors.

  1. This examples uses a model that has walls and slabs. There are two types of windows and three types of doors.

  2. Use the Style Manager to create a schedule style (see Schedule Styles).
  3. To create the schedule with the new style, open the Schedule tool's Properties to the General page.

  4. Switch to World Plan view and use the Schedule tool to place the schedule, by clicking two corner points.

  5. Select Fill Schedule Wizard.

  6. Click the schedule you want to fill.
  7. In the wizard, check the types of objects to include. (The list that appears in the window depends on what was defined as part of the schedule style.) Then click Next.

  8. Select the layers you want to include in the scan, and click Next.

    Note: For details on layers, see Snap Modes.
    The schedule is filled with all objects found on the selected layers.
