MasterKey for ArchiCAD - Updating MasterKey keynotes when your specification changes

All modifications to keynotes generated from your Masterspec specification must be made via the Masterspec NextGen2 website. The changes will then be pushed through to your drawing sheets when you update the Keynote Manager in ArchiCAD.

To accept these modifications in your ArchiCAD project, select Update in the Keynotes Palette. This will automatically connect to the Masterspec servers and source and download the revised specification for your ArchiCAD project.

UPDATING KEYNOTES

The Keynotes Review palette will then appear showing you the changes for your specification. The changes are displayed as follows.

BLUE

 NEW

RED


 DELETED

ORANGE

 CHANGED

Review the changed Keynotes by clicking on them to ensure you are happy to proceed before updating your ArchiCAD project database. This may be particularly useful if the person responsible for the specification is not also doing the drafting.

If you are happy with the changes, click OK to update your Project Keynotes database. However, this action will not update the already placed labels throughout your project. To update the Keynotes see the next section.

UPDATING ALREADY PLACED KEYNOTE LABELS

The MasterKey Audit Labels palette will automatically appear to notify you of the required changes to your project’s labels by listing each keynote and how many times it appears on each view.

If the placed Keynotes have been modified or removed, the palette will highlight this modification with the same coloured text.

You can then select either the entire project or one particular note and then select Repair. This will update the Label in your ArchiCAD project with the new database entry, or it will remove it if the entry has been removed.
