How can I delete these keynotes?

Posted on: 19 Jan, 2015

Hi I just started using Keynotes for ArchiCAD 18, I know that is has changed significantly for these new version but I can't figure out how to delete keynotes. If I select them and click delete they disappear from the list, but if I want to create a new keynote with the same key number I have a message that says I can't create it because I already have a key with the same number. Can you please help? Thanks

Why are my keynotes disappearing?

Posted on: 20 Jun, 2014

We recently finished a church project a few weeks ago and were getting back into it to issue an addendum and the keynotes on certain view-maps disappeared. The leaders are still there, but the keynote is gone. This program is so buggy in Teamwork... The images below show what it looked like the day we issued it (keynotes are on and working. Then the next image shows how it looks now. The keynotes are still in the database, but just not on the sheets.

Keynote descriptions missing

Posted on: 13 Apr, 2014

Hi, I'm trying to place some keynotes. How do I get the descriptions of each keynote to appear in the Keynotes palette? You can see on the attached screenshot only the numbers are visible. Page 6 of the Getting Started reference guide dated 30.08.2012 shows both numbers and descriptions. Thanks, Harley

How to import memorized Keynote settings to new Projects?

Posted on: 14 Jan, 2014

When I import the Keynotes tab-separated or comma-separated file into a new PLN, it doesn't bring along the other memorized Keynote label settings that I had carefully established. From where can this information be retrieved, so that we don't have to re-define our preferred label settings etc. for every project? (see attached screenshot)

Any method to paste a General Note without making it keyed to something?

Posted on: 28 Dec, 2013

Hi, Overall I am very impressed with my new Keynotes software and functionality. However, in addition to placing AC text labels, I'd also like to use Keynotes to list General Notes about the project. Do you have recommendation on how to do this? A workaround I'm imagining is to place text labels where the leader line and arrow are whited out to be invisible, but I am hoping for a more elegant solution from you. Thanks

Why is my Keynote database not saving?

Posted on: 03 May, 2013

I've loaded my created keynote database, and it shows up in the keynote palette, however when I send/receive or reopen the project the keynote database is no longer uploaded. It reverts back to the preset keynote database, and I have to reload the keynotes again. I've tried it on other user's computers but with the same result. We are using Archicad 16 on a BIM Server.

Keynote text editing codes

Posted on: 04 Apr, 2013

Hi there I'm just going through the process of updating my Keynotes to the new format and I notice in the Cadimage Keynotes.txt file that there are some special codes which seem to create new lines and tabs in the long description, but I can't find any reference to these codes in the knowledge base. The codes are in the long description of 0.01.01 and are \n\t which when imported into ArchiCAD and placed in the master specification create a new line and tab indent for the asterix bullet to line up with the one above. Are there more special codes that I can use to format text within the Long Description and are they documented somewhere? Regards Andrew S

Can I have 2 separate schedules in one project

Posted on: 09 Oct, 2012

I would like to use the keynote manager to create two separate schedules in one project. One schedule would be used for the general keynotes, and one schedule is to be used for a finish schedule. I know that the database can only be handled as one complete one, but I would like the schedule to show as two different schedules on the same layout sheet, filtered by keynotes or finish notes. Is this possible? Basically one schedule would be: Keynotes: 1.01 Note xxxx 1.02 Note xxx 3.01 Note xxxx and one would be Finishnotes: PT-01 Note xxxx PT-02 Note xxxxx etc

Where can I get the tool scheme for Version 15?

Posted on: 06 Jun, 2012

I have just installed the Feb Tools update. I notice that my AC15 Work Environment now includes a locked Tool Scheme named "Cadimage Tools 15". There is no Tools Scheme 15 under Downloads > Goodies except for the v14 scheme that I previously downloaded and applied. Qtn 1) Am I correct in thinking that this was instaled with the lastest tools update? Qtn 2) Could you please advise the changes that are in this v15 Scheme or which tools have been upated in that scheme? The reason I ask this is that I have already updated the v14 scheme, including adding the Keynotes panels to the Tool Settings boxes as instructed by Cadimage. The v15 scheme to does not have the Keynotes panels activated so they have to be activated again for Keynotes.
