Hi all,

it seems that the Schedule of Surfaces no longer will let me use any created parameter.

If the parameter is used to filter :
Nothing will be find and describe by the schedule

If the parameter is used as part of the schedule ("describe") :
Elements will be found but the parameter will be noted as "--" in the schedule


It did work perfectly in AC22 ... Any idea why or how to make to fix that ?

What is this "Services" parameter that you are trying to schedule? Is this an element Property you created in the Property Manager Dialog? In my Archicad 24, I see that there is no such parameter available by default.
All I can see from your screenshot is that "Services" is a Text type parameter.
And yes, from your screenshots I can see that it returns a value when used in an Element Schedule, but no value when it is used in a Surface Schedule.

The "Services" parameters is Text Parameter I created my self. (It can be used for all kind of elements).

I do a lot of Offices, and i need to specify the "services" for a lot of stuff, such as zones, furnitures and partition

I can confirm (tested in 24) that a string property returns no value when used in a surface schedule.
I am not sure why as all other (at least lengths and number properties) seem to work fine.

Hi all,

Thank you very much for your reports and I am very sorry about the issue!

This is a known defect in our database (please refer to it as DEF-1835). From AC23, the Surface schedule cannot handled string properties correctly, they will be shown as "---".

The workaround here is to use Element schedules instead, but I can see that in some cases, this won't be possible. I hope that we will be able to correct it in the near future!

Thank you for your understanding, and once again I am very sorry for the inconvenience!

Best regards,
Minh
