Breakdown of configuration options

Truss, Framing, & Joist Layers

Command affected:  JHANG

When drawing a crossing line along the ends of the framing members to place a hanger on there are often objects that will get crossed but that should not get a hanger drawn on them. In order to limit the objects that will get a hanger drawn on them to just framing members the JHANG command will only place hangers on lines and plines that are on a layer that matches the layers in this list.

Specify the layers that you want the JHANG command to draw hangers on. You may call them out specifically and/or you may use wildcards

In the dialog shown above the string "S-FRAM-##" means that the JHANG command will insert hangers on any line/pline that is on a layer that is named "S-FRAM-<number><number>" so "S-FRAM-01", "S-FRAM-02", "S-FRAM-03"  and so on would all have hangers drawn on them, but "S-FRAM-B1" would not.

To add to the list of layers that the JHANG command will draw a hanger on press the "Add Layer" button and the following dialog will appear:

Type in the layer name or layer wildcard that you would like to add and press "OK". It will be added to the list of layers that the JHANG command will search.

Should you want to delete one of the layers or wildcard designations select it in the list and press "Delete Layer" and it will be removed.

Distance to Inset the Block From End of Line

Command affected:  JHANG

This command will insert the hanger block this distance in (back towards the middle of the joist) from the end of the joist. This is to allow a space between the bearing object and the hanger for clarity. If your block already accounts for this spacing you may enter zero.
