Speed up editing with these three tips. (The first two must be changed to see any improvement.)
- Turn off Design flags (Analysis and Design Indicators)
- Turn off Dynamic Material Lists
- Turn off the setting which automatically group tags members
Analysis and Design Indicators:
There is a Program Setting change that can have a positive impact on the time it takes to edit a member. This involves turning off the design flags. (Step 1)
Go to File > Setup > Program Settings... > Settings > View & Selection > Drawing > Draw Analysis and Design Indicators.
Change this value from "Yes" to "No", and go to step 2.
Dynamic Material Lists and Labels:
Go to Program Settings > General > Auto Preferences > Dynamic Material Lists. Change this from "Yes" to "No."
Click OK to save your changes.
You may manually refresh these lists by clicking the button just below - "Refresh Material Lists", or deleting and recreating the list.
Auto-Generate Group Labels:
Turn off the automatic generation of group tags. Job Properties > Job Settings > Labels > Labels: Group Label Settings
Labels - Group Labels > Auto Generate Group Labels - Change to "No".
You may have to change the individual sub-groups such as Joist Group Label Settings as well.
Expand out the sub groups by clicking on the triangle just to the left of Labels: Group Label Settings to view each sub group.
