    Default Property Set Definitions for Schedules

    I am new to creating schedules. This has probably already been thought of a thousand times before. So here go. In order to get my Room Opening Schedule to work I have to add 3 different property set definitions to all my doors: Door information, Door styles, Frame styles. Could I make the process easier by creating a new property set definition with the name Room Opening Schedule? Then all you would have to do is select all you doors and add the property set definition named after the schedule you would be creating. Then you could do this for all the different schedules you use. When you look in the Style Manager under the Property Set Definitions folder and the Schedule Table Styles the lists you look exactly the same. Hopefully my description is clear. Good idea or not? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    While there is no requirement to have a Schedule Table Style and a Property Set Definition it references to have the same name, there is, to my knowledge, no prohibition on it, either. If it makes sense to you, go for it.

    [Note: A Schedule Table Style can pull properties from multiple Property Set Definitions. Not that you could not use the Schedule Table Style name with various numbers appended, should you ever have a reason to place your properties in different Property Set Definitions. One instance where that would be necessary is if your schedule references properties, some of which are style-based and others of which are object-based.]
