    Hi


    I did post this previously but it was on a closed thread, so have re-posted as a new thread because i'm not sure if the developers check closed threads.


    Is it just me, or when in preview mode / safe frame mode, the time of day is hidden behind the "Exit Preview (ESC)".

    This is really frustrating as we adjust the time of day for each view in order to get the best image, but need to be able to make a note of the time of day. We then use this to set up view specific view templates in Revit as this is the only way we have been able maintain the desired daylight setting for each view.

    Is there anyway the "Exit Preview (ESC)" and the time of day could be next to each other rather than overlapping? Would make life easier.

    Interface Overlay


    We are trying to set up a suitable image to use as an interface overlay (company logo , contact details etc.) and could do with some advice.


    We have a custom output that we tend to use for still images of 4000 x 2250 and have noticed that the interface overlay image isn’t reaming a consistent size relative to the custom image output.


    The interface overlay image appears to be proportional to the window size rather than the custom image size. So if we render from a small window the interface overlay comes out larger than if a bigger window were used? The final image output is still 4000 x 2250 irrespective of the window size.


    Surely the interface overlay should be proportional to the custom image size rather than the window size?


    We were trying to set up the interface overlay image to avoid having to use Photoshop to add the company logo etc., but unless this issue can be rectified I am not sure we will be able to use this feature.


    Has anyone else experienced this issue, and if so was a suitable solution / workaround found?

    We are currently in the process of replacing some of our Revit workstations and the graphics cards that are installed as standard are:


    NVIDIA Quadro P2000, 5GB Graphics Card


    I appreciate that these are slightly older graphics cards, but are more than adequate for Revit (and as always we are on a tight budget). I would be interested in how well these cards run / cope with Enscape.


    Any feedback would be most appreciated.

    It would already be a big advantage if the placeholder just had colour.

    Completely agree with this, would make all of the place holders far more usable if they had some simple materials parameters for use within Revit.

    It comes back to the discussion I've had in the past about wanting to use the Enscape place holders to display on drawings produced directly from Revit. Low polygons are great for place holders but are generally not of a good enough quality for inclusion on drawings produced directly from Revit (plans, elevations etc.).


    The current place holders are perfect for Enscape (cars, planting etc), but are lacking Revit parameters for materials etc. to make them useful for direct output from Revit (and there is a whole other discussion about when a car is a car, or if it is a plant....).


    As a Revit user it would be ideal to be able to use the Enscape place holders directly for output from Revit, unfortunately this is not currently the case.


    We currently use the following workaround for trees that we need to appear on our Revit drawings. We have 2 linked Revit files one with RPC trees for content we need to output directly from Revit and another linked file that contains Enscape place holders. Having the 2 linked files allows for very easy control within Revit via view templates, however this is far from ideal.


    I appreciate the need to keep the Enscape content simple, but with the addition of a few additional parameters the current content would be far more useful for output from within Revit (not just Enscape).


    It would be useful to establish how the current Enscape place holders are created for use within Revit in order to see if the current Enscape Revit users can offer some assistance to the Developers.

    Hi not sure if this has bee raised before, but we have noticed that the Flower assets in Revit are all a similar colour (blue / purple).


    Would it be possible to get some different colours? Yellows, whites, pinks, reds....... or if possible set this up as a material option in the asset?

    Any progress on having presets shared in a central location, for example on our main file server? As the files are currently saved locally they do not get backed up (if they were in a central location on our main file server they would).


    This is an issue as one of our users accidentally changed some of our presets and it transpires we have no backup! If they were stored on our central file server then we would be able to easily re-instate them.
