You can add Estimating records directly to ArchT assemblies using the Add Records command. This is a two-step process. First you add the assembly to the drawing, then you add the Estimating record to the assembly.
You can also assign an Estimating record to an ArchT style. Assigning an Estimating record to an ArchT style automatically adds that Estimating record to all the existing assemblies that use that style. In addition, any new assemblies you add using that style also have the Estimating record assigned to them. For example, suppose you assign the Interior Stud Wall work package to the ArchT standard wall style. All existing walls in the drawing which use the standard wall style now have the Interior Stud Wall work package attached to them. In addition, when you add new walls which use the standard wall style, Precision Link automatically adds the Interior Stud Wall work package to them.
After you assign Estimating records to styles, you can modify the records as follows:
To modify the Estimating record assigned to a particular assembly, use the Modify Records command. This command lets you select one or more assemblies in the drawing and modify the Estimating records assigned to them. Even though the Estimating records were added to the assemblies automatically via styles, the changes you make to the records affect only the assemblies you select.
Sometimes you'll want to make global changes that affect the Estimating records assigned to all the assemblies which use a particular style. In this case, use the specific Styles command (e.g., Wall Styles) to change the Estimating record. Precision Link applies the changes to the Estimating records attached to all the assemblies which use that style. If you used the Modify Records command to change the records for one or more assemblies which use that style and then use this editing technique, Precision Link removes the changes you made using the Modify Records command.
