General:

Command affected:  FINSCHED

This is where you enter the text for the titles of the room number and room name columns in the finish schedule.

These values have the ability to stack two text lines in the finish schedule title area to conserve space so you may enter a "Top schedule title" and a "Bottom schedule title" for each. You may leave either the top or bottom titles blank if you only want to use one line for the title.

Floor:

Command affected:  FINSCHED

It seems that every office has a slightly different set of items that they like specify in a finish schedule. In order to accommodate all the possible items that might need specified we have allowed you to create your own custom items. There are four possible items that you may specify for the floor and you may specify the schedule titles, prompt, and default value for each of  these items.

To use an item check the "Use:" box. You may then specify the schedule title values (both top and bottom - the schedule has two lines for these titles to help conserve space).

Then you may specify the prompt that is displayed when editing the room name/number symbols and the default value that will be used when inserting it.

Note:  If you change the location of a title, the information entered in the symbols for that title will not follow the title to its new location. The information entered in the symbols is referenced by its location and is not linked to the words of the title. Therefore if you move a title, the information already entered for that title in existing symbols will have to be moved in each symbol as well.

Ceiling:

Command affected:  FINSCHED

Once again, in order to accommodate all the possible items that might need to be specified we have allowed you to create your own custom items. There are four possible items that you may specify for the ceiling and you may specify the schedule titles, prompt, and default value for each of  these items.

To use an item check the "Use:" box. You may then specify the schedule title values (both top and bottom - the schedule has two lines for these titles to help conserve space).

Portion of the TXTEDT command for Room Name/Number symbols

Then you may specify the prompt that is displayed when editing the room name/number symbols and the default value that will be used when inserting it.

Note:  If you change the location of a title, the information entered in the symbols for that title will not follow the title to its new location. The information entered in the symbols is referenced by its location and is not linked to the words of the title. Therefore if you move a title, the information already entered for that title in existing symbols will have to be moved in each symbol as well.

Walls:

Command affected:  FINSCHED

Specify the titles for the walls of your rooms. Obviously we've made the assumption that most of your rooms
will have only four directions. If they have more use the notes/remarks area to cover the others.

Now specify the items that you would like to use with each of the walls described above.

Each wall may have up to ten items. Check the "Use:" box for each of the items that you would like to specify then enter the title for the schedule for each item (the schedule title only has one line of text for these values as the wall title uses the top title line as shown above)

 


 

Portion of the TXTEDT
command for Room Name/Number
symbols

 

 

Next enter the "Rm symbol prompt:" & "Symbol default value:" for each item. The prompt is what will show on the left as shown above when editing the room name/number symbol with the TXTEDT command. The default values are what the values will be for each wall when the room name/number symbol is inserted (unless changed).

Note:  If you change the location of a title, the information entered in the symbols for that title will not follow the title to its new location. The information entered in the symbols is referenced by its location and is not linked to the words of the title. Therefore if you move a title, the information already entered for that title in existing symbols will have to be moved in each symbol as well.
