When did that happen? / I forgot about that!
I finally started a project in version 14 today. It’s probably more accurate to say I got distracted from working on my first version 14 project and spent time transferring over my version 11 template.
The task is a little more daunting than I expected because I’m jumping so many versions. So I’m going to forge ahead on this project and develop the template as I go. I expect to have lots to share in the coming days.
Here’s two things that I came across. Oddly, neither are new to version 14…
- I learned today that door and window swings can be curved or straight. I don’t remember seeing this in version 11, so I think it’s something that appeared in v12 or v13. You can read more here. A lot of my coworkers will be excited to have the ability to use straight door swings. It’s never been my preference, but that’s okay.
- Eric Bobrow, one of the makers of MasterTemplate, has a great 5 minute video on how to set door and window IDs en masse. Again, this is a trick that has been around for a long time. But I haven’t used this option since version 9 (4 or 5 years ago) and had long since forgotten about it. It’s a great trick. And if you select the windows or doors in 3D, you can change IDs across stories.
