QUESTION

How do I get the Material List Display Options dialog box to appear?

Whenever I select Tools> Display Options  I am presented with a Layer Display Options dialog, instead of the Material List Display Options dialog.

How do I get to the Material List Display Options dialog box so that I can make certain categories of my materials list visible or invisible?


ANSWER

The Material List Display Options dialog is used to make certain categories visible or invisible, depending on your needs. In order to access this dialog box, you must first create a new Materials List.

Once the materials list is open, you will be able to access the dialog box. Use the following procedure to access the Material List Display Options dialog box.

 

To access the Material List Display Options dialog

  1. To create the materials list from your plan, select Tools> Materials List> Calculate From All Floors .

    This will generate a Materials List. Once the Materials List has generated, you will have full access to each of the menu items.


  2. With the Materials List open, select Tools> Display Settings> Display Options  from the menu to open the Material List Display Options dialog.


  3. Within this box you will be able to make the categories of your choice visible or invisible. 

     

    In doing so, you will be able to isolate certain categories for the purposes of printing, examination or modification.


  4. Click OK when finished.
