Separate Out Hedging within a Schedule


You wish the drawing schedule to show specifications associated to hedges separate from other specifications.


Here we have a default schedule split into trees and shrubs. 1 of these shrubs is part of a hedge, and we want to display it in a separate group to other specifications.



To do this, go to ‘Softworks > Schedule > Modify Style’, to load the style dialog.



Using the ‘Insert Group’ section in the top right, we can create a blank [New] group. If we want to copy an existing group, select the group header of the group you wish to duplicate and press [Copy Existing].



Here you will be asked where to add the new group, press [Yes] to insert after the selected group, or [No] to add to the end of the groups list.


With the new group, there are a few things to change.



Firstly, change the Header. Then we need to set the filtering for the group to only show Hedges, so set the Object type to KeySOFTWORKS > Hedges, and select and [Remove] the Species Group condition.



Now that we have a new group which will only show hedges, we need to stop hedges from showing up their original groups, as we don’t want duplicated data in the schedule.


For each of the existing groups, select the group header and set the Object Type to ‘KeySOFTWORKS > Exclude Hedges’.



Once each group has been told to ignore hedges, [Apply] and [Close] the schedule style and the schedule will update to show hedges in their own group.



To save repeating this in the future, it is recommended that you save this style. To do that, open the Schedule Style dialog again, and press [Export] at the top. Either save over the existing style, or give it a new name to save new style. If you want to use this style again, [Import] in the Schedule Style dialog to bring it into another drawing.
