Sorry for this question, but I cannot edit the height of a curtain wall in ABD Update 4. I can edit the different components but not the height of the whole curtain wall.
There are two ways to change the height: in a schedule or using the grip handle.
Since schedules have been around a while, I'll explain what's new (If you need help making a schedule, let me know).
The curtain wall uses a new technology for grip handles. It acts a little differently than other tools you are used to, but it's what allows the selection of mullions and panels inside the system but allows the entire assemble to act as one element.
If you hover over the top corner of the curtain wall, a grip handle will appear. If you click on it, that will select it. If you keep your cursor on top of it, a mini toolbar will appear. Click the Move icon, and it will let you change the height up or down.
There is a similar handle at the lower corners of a curtain wall which lets you change the length.
By the way, the curtain wall does not appear in the Schedule.
Hi Tom, It seems my Dataset_NM has different catalog type for CWalls (it looks different than yours):
You have Courtain Wall panels, frames and Systems and I just have a generic one.
The NM dataset has that same division. It's part of the new Curtain Wall tool deployment.
It looks like you may have a schedule created for the previous Curtain Wall tool, not the new one. Was your dataset upgraded from a previous Update? You might need to create a new schedule for the new tool if that's the case.
Sergi, do you see Curtain Walls if you turn off the filter?

Yes, I see 2 catalog types, the old and new one. Thank you.
Thanks for confirming.
