Add Alias to Customized Item Takeoff Information
« on: Sep 29, 2006, 02:59:36 PM »
Can we add alias to the customized item takeoff information?  This way we could add it to the item tab of a fitting...

Yes, we have the do alias LISP.  

I just think it would be nice to edit the alias while editing a fitting.

There is an alias field that you can customize but I believe your question is deeper than that.  Elaborate more and we can help out

When I double click on an object then go to the item tab, the alias field doesn't show up here. (See attached image) I have seen it done before though. When I right click and edit the object, then click the "Customize Item Takeoff Information" button, then Item tab, alias is not an option in the list to add. I was just wondering if it is possible some how.

I am new to some of this so, hopefully you understand my question.

That is odd.  Since it is a product listed item I tried adding it in the product data.  Not seeing a way.

It does show when you are modifying multiple objects though.

I don't See it available in the "Customise Item Takeoff Information" list either.
You can however add this to the product list for each size of a product listed ITM.
Strange that after it is placed and picks up the Alias from the product list you can still edit the Alias entry of the instance using "Change Object(s) Properties".
