Scheme Settings Dialog Box (Interactive Schedule)

Click Scheme Settings from the opened Schedule window
Use Document > Schedules and Lists > Schedules > Scheme Settings
New/Duplicate: Click New to create a new Schedule Scheme.
Delete: Click to delete the selected Schedule Scheme.
Import: Click to import a Scheme data file (XML format, created with ARCHICAD 8 or above) or a Door or Window Schedule file (created with ARCHICAD 7.0.)
Export: Click to export the Scheme as an XML file that you will be able to import into another project.
In the Criteria panel, click Add Criteria to expand the Scheme definition.
In the Value column, depending on the type of the criterion, you can type a value manually or choose from pop-up controls. For example, if the criterion is Subtype name, click the three-dot button to choose from the list of Subtypes.
If you click the drop-down button on the Add Criteria button, you can access the following as criteria:
Remove: Click this button to delete the selected row. Inactive if no row is selected.
Click and drag the up/down arrow at the beginning of any row to move the row up or down within the Scheme.
The and/or operator determines the relationship between adjacent criteria.
If needed, use the Open Parentheses and Close Parentheses columns of Scheme Settings to set up nested criteria for more complex schemes: in any selected row, click on the pop-up under the parentheses column to choose a parenthesis, or no parenthesis.
Add Fields: Click this button to access the list of available parameters and properties.
Keep Components together in the Schedule: This checkbox is available in the Scheme Settings of component-type lists.
Remove: Click this button to delete the selected field from Scheme.
In both the Criteria and Fields panels of Scheme Settings, use the black arrow at the right end of the Add Criteria or Add Fields button to access additional parameters and properties:
Library Part Parameters: This command makes the parameters of loaded library parts available for listing as criteria or as fields.
Select Object by: Use the pop-up on the right to choose an option for searching for objects to select.
Folder View: lists all the loaded library folders that contain library parts.
Folder View (Used Objects only): lists the loaded library folders that contain the library parts used in the current project.
Search Criteria: displays a form that allows you to list the library parts whose name matches the chosen criteria.
Favorite Objects: shows the preview and the name of the library parts defined as Favorites.
Search Object: If the Search Criteria option is active in the Select Object by pop-up field, this area allows you to search for library parts whose name matches some criteria.
Find names which: With the pop-up control, choose a condition (match, contain, start with, end with) and enter a text string in the field on the right.
Search in: Use this pop-up control to choose a loaded library to search. Click the Find button to display the results in the Library parts found box.
Find: Click this button to perform a search based on the condition set with the Find names with and Search in controls.
Library parts found: Displays the preview and names of the library parts that match the condition set with the Find names with and Search in controls.
Add: Click this button to add the available parameter selected in the box on the left to the list of selected parameters on the right.
Remove: Click this button to delete the selected field from the box on the right.
IFC Properties: If you want to use IFC properties as criteria or fields for the schedule, click this command.
The appearing Select IFC Properties dialog box lists all IFC properties defined for all elements in the project. Only those properties are listed which are checked in the element Settings dialog box (and which will therefore be exported if the project is saved in IFC format).
Click the second button to add a schedule cell which displays the sum of the items in the selected field. Here, we will have the schedule add a sum to the schedule’s Volume column.
Note: You can apply unique formatting options to this row of sums/quantities, which is called Grand Total. If you choose “Grand Total” from the Apply to pop-up list, the formatting options will apply to this row/column of the schedule only.
The third button lets you add a flag to one of the fields in the list. (You cannot flag more than one field at a time.) The flagged field will display a separate sum or quantity for each group of identical elements in that field. For example, the Wall Type field already has a “Quantity” row, showing the total number of walls; to show a Quantity for each type of wall in that field, we have added a flag to the Building Material field.
Note: You can apply unique formatting options to this row of sum/quantity subtotals, which is called Total.
