  1. Question: the BOMA standard Dominant Portion is the area point for office buildings and is often the window. Can the window Symbols be viewed in the 2020 version and can Area polylines snap to those symbols? I have to hold a reference on to my screen and toggle between Drawing and Area modes to moved the area line on to the symbol. Not accurate and not easy.
    Thanks for the reply!

    • Not exactly sure what you are trying to do but you may want to download the 2020 trial and try for yourself, please try setting up a custom drawing mode with Area visibility on along with the regular drawing items.
