I usually work one screen (envisioneer in model view) when I’m getting started Because i have Emails with notes, I have a PDF sketch from the contractor, ETC. open on the other. Would be nice to have a larger screen then 24″ is not big with 3 or 4 windows.
Then once I’m in worksheet view I like to Cover both screens and put in all the floor plans, Usually one on the screen i’m working and then i split the the other screen up if i have to. Also Very nice when you’re Finishing elevations and doing cross-sections (I do those from scratch find it easier) It’s just much quicker and you can see details without switching back and forth all the time.
Would be interested in hearing how you guys do it to. Maybe i’ll learn a much better way.
Currently using 17″ laptop (screen has emails, Excel, Hyne Design etc) with Envisioneer maximized on 28″ UHD screen
Prior to this Metabox laptop – 2.5 years old now, I ran a desktop driving 19″ screen in portrait (with emails, Excel etc) with Envisioneer stretched across 2x 24″ HD screens both portrait. At one stage I even dragged the Catalogue (and Properties in Worksheet view) onto the 19″ . . . .iirc that made worksheets fit better & added a little more to the drawing area as well.
Guess I’m showing my age because I detest the tabbed interface. I prefer to have most toolbars displayed so I can access just about any tool with a single click. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome obviously influences that choice!
Happy Donut Day, If you don’t live in PA you prolly don’t know what that means today is a holiday in PA where everyone goes and buys donuts And everyone likes donuts exept the people that were making them since last night. Peanut Butter donut with coffee AAHHH!!!!
Interesting I enjoy hearing how other people do it. I used a laptop for the first year and a half of doing blueprints, With only a 15″ laptop screen and that was not a good idea looking back working on one screen really slowed me down. And the laptop still does great when I’m only doing construction drawings (which is what i do mostly) But when i get these 3D jobs like one a month and especially the doctors home in my latest post my laptop would really slow down.
But I’m very curious what is portrait mode in envisioneer how does it look? and how would switch over just to try it out?
