Speaking of 2022...

 

One suggestion I have (assuming it's not too late haha!!) is to make a "Mass Duplicate" command, where we can block-select things to duplicate.

 

I'm working on an elevation tonight and had to turn something on to a faded layer, and when I use Duplicate it's tedious to "repeat-edit" style click everything I want to duplicate.

 

Maybe there's already something I don't know about?  In fact there probably is.  Hah.  But if not, I would recommend this as an alternative.

Aaaaaand nevermind.  I was up until midnight and up at 2am to take people to the airport...I'm apparently a bit delerious.  Repeat Edit works wonders for this problem.  

Suggestion for SP Forums though - make it so we can delete our own foolishness!  Hah.

Right click on the item
Select “type selection”
Right click again
Select “edit and repeat”
Edit as needed.
Click OK
Click edit “finger” when done to turn off and finish.

Another suggestion - I haven't seen where SP has the ability to do box newels yet for stairs/railings...seems like this should be something we can do by now?

You can use any sort of post for the newel. So, design whatever you want and make it a post/newel and replace the ones you want. You can use lathe for fancy stuff, DWG imports for detailed posts, or caps, etc. to get looks you want.

I been using the 3D warehouse A LOT and creating all my own corbels, brackets, newel posts etc for over 10 years.
Osborne web site has plenty of CAD resources as well.
