Revit :: 2014 - Printing Visible Portion Of Current Window?
Jun 11, 2013
I have had numerous problems trying to print from 2014 using the setting "Visible portion of current window". This feature was never that good, anyway, but now it seems to be WAY worse. I'm spending 5-10 minutes to just send something to the printer that should only take 5 seconds.
See the attached images of what I see on screen, the print dialog boxes and then what I actually get. The "Center" option doesn't function properly and now I must manually adjust the margins to print what I see on the screen.
I'm trying to import one Revit file into another. When I try to link the file I get a dialogue box that says:
"The import geometry will not be visible in the view using current settings. The Oringin of the import will be centered on the origin of the model instead. You can view the import in any view where its geometry is within the extents."
For this it sounds like the imported model is way off to the side or way up high or low but even in a view that I increase the extents to maximum i can't see the object.
I've tried "center to centre" and "origin to origin". I've check in the visual graphic and can't see anything turned off.
The file i am imported ia a structural model export from Tekla that I imported into a Revit and cleaned up. Everything looks fine when i open the file on it's own.
Apparently the issue has been happening since as far back as CS2. The flashing text cursor is only visible in the upper left hand portion of the screen. If the text your are attempting to edit is on the far right or bottom of the screen, the cursor vanishes. Some people have suggested zooming in and out, but this only appears to solve the problem because the art board may get nudged into the "good" portion of the screen. I did a screen shot and found that the cursor is only visible in about a 930p x 600p area of the window (not including toolbars). Incindentally, the is the same size that the window defaults to when initially opened. On a HD monitor, this amounts to a very small space.
I need to get the visible portion of a particular layer in the final image.Lets say i have 4 layers and some portion of each layer is visible in the flattened image i would like to get the portion from each of the layers. The input will be in xcvf format.I will ideally want to automate this and output to file in some format looking like this,
Layer1 ---> Co-ordinates of visible polygon from this particular layer in the image . Layer2 ---> And so on.
How to proceed with the script. I think brute force is to take each non-transparent pixel and and find the same pixel in all above layers if it is not found it will be added to the region.Or something exists like selection from alpha combined with multiple layers ?
Or if there is a way to find out for an image with all layers visible which pixel came from which layer ?
I converted from AutoCAD 2000 to 2014 and now when I open up my old drawings some of the text does not show up. But if I go back and open it with 2000 it is still there. I found that if I convert the text to mtext it shows up. Is there a setting in AutoCAD 2014 that I can change so that this text shows up? I tried changing the annotation scale to see if that would do anything but it did not.
I am currently doing a migration of files to 2014. During the migration, does windows active window you are working in deactivate while the Task Scheduler is running? Trying to type an email got a bit annoying. Minimizing the Task Scheduler will only work some of the time.

I modified a Window Family file by adding a Window inset parameter. When I inserted the window into a wall, otherwise the window worked fine, but when I changed the window's Window Inset value, the frame depth changed instead of the frame's location. The frame was originally made by Sweep tool, but now when I made it by Extrusion tool, the window works fine. Anyway, for future purposes, I would like to know how to be able to use the Window Inset parameter with a frame made by Sweep tool. How do I lock the depth of the frame sweep?
I am trying to find the best way to make the wall/roof shown below. I have experimented with the normal route of using walls and roofs with no luck, then I tried a conceptual mass, then I tried model in place component which is how I made the model below and that worked to get the exterior form I need, but I cant void the interior part of the crossing forms so I can finish the floor plan on the interior. I need to somehow erase the portion of the two buildings where they overlap so I dont have the interior wall of the smaller building. I use revit architecture 2010.
I'm attempting to create a wall style that has 2 components, a framed wall and a brick veneer. What I would like to do is have this wall react a certain way when I insert a window. Basically, I don't want the window to cut into the brick veneer, only the framing.
I have attached my attempt so far, and I have not figured out how to get the window to only cut the framed portion.
I have a problem with "tools/window attributes/configure current"when I try to configure current window (especialy tabulator spaces 8 -> 2) I got fatal error: unhandled access violation Writing 0x0000 Exception at cc424946h
Photoshop Elements 12 opens with the top portion of the window not available on my Mavericks desktop. Without access to the top bar of the window I'm unable to reposition the window. Rebooting the computer and re-starting the program doesn't reset its position. The top of the window is not visible on a secondary monitor either.
What I am trying to do is to model a roof using Revit Lt so that the roof tiling and battens carry on over the gable wall. Is it possible to add a void profile to the roof slab in order to achieve this or do I need to model a small section of roof to just cover the wall portion?
On PE 9 there was a way to make the window (area within tool/layer/toolbar frame) transparent so the desktop would be visible. Can this be done for PE 11? The default is gray and I can't find any setting to make it transparent.
So for some reason when I open maya and try to open a file or create reference the window doesn't pop up and I can't click anything else whenever I try I hear a ding sound. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
I need to remove the background image which is visible through a stained glass window and replace it with a soft plain background (simulating an ambient light)
I don't really want to artificially recreate the lead grid design and wondered what's the best technique (masking or otherwise) to preserve this detail? I am considering clone stamp, intelligent fill, masking etc. but first I need to create a source of the grid to use.
I am using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 and Adobe X Pro. When I print to PDF (using plotter DWG to PDF) the hatching for the slopes analysis does not show up. I have other hatching in the plan and that shows up, along with the outline for the slopes. Its just the actually slope hatching that doesn't show up.
I am using MEP 2012, I have arch back rounds on in a Xref. Everything seems to be fine and work well. When we go to print the drawing on with the xref on it is barely visible. If I open the xref up and print it comes out fine. I have inserted the xref to its own layer.I do not know what to do from here.
My production team uses the Inventor View to view drawings once they are released from engineering. Sometimes they get printed so they can send a copy to our vendors. When ever they print from Inventor View 2014 the lines that are on the Visible Layer do not print. Also the lines in the titeblock are not very dark even though the "print all colors black" has been checked. It does not matter which printer or computer is used.
I have a family reunion photo from 1925 that I'd like to print and distribute with all of the 20 or so individuals tagged names visable. If this is possible, I'd distribute one clean photo and one photo with names. Can I make this happen with Elements 11?
I am trying to export part of a structural model to IFC but Revit is exporting the complete model. My file is from a consultant and is created in Revit Structure 2011, I am opening it with Revit 2012. The model contains ‘new’ and ‘existing’ phases which appear to be set up correctly.
I have tried a couple of different methods set up a 3D view and defined it by phase 'new only' so the existing is hidden, and tried to export with the “current view only” checked and uncheckedset up a 3D view and defined it by workset using visibility graphics, and again with the “current view only” checked and uncheckedEach time when I open the Model in Navisworks or Solibri everything is visible.Have tried this in both Struct and Arch with the same result, but I do not have the same issue if I open and export from Revit 2011 (arch) ?
Why isn’t my DWG link from one RVT visible when I link it into another? I.E. I link my site dwg into my Arch central and want the Site to be visible when I link the Arch into other files. I want the Arch to hold the Site link but be able to see the site when the arch in linked into other models. I could have sworn I have done this in the past but can’t get it to work now for some reason.
I am having troubles with printing my work in Photoshop. The problems is that the printing window is to large for my 10" screen, which means that I cannot see the whole window and the printing button. How can I make it smaller, so I can print?
