    Graphical Column Schedule too large to fit on one sheet...

    The firm I'm with now uses Graphical Column schedules in their projects. (My former firm just tagged the columns on plan at foundation level and again where a column splice occured.)

    This firm is new to RS, and I'm new to GCS. So, my Graphical Column Schedule is too large to fit on one sheet. I saw that I could "Group Similar Locations" and that would make the schedule smaller, but looking at old projects, this firm schedules each and every column independently.

    What are my other options for splitting the GCS to several sheets?

    I'm telling you! Everytime I think I've exhaused all my searching for an answer (hours!) all I have to do is post my question here and when I return to my project, I figure out the answer!

    OK... for those stumbling upon this post, here's the scoop!

    In your GCS, you can set how many columns are showing across the width of your schedule. (see attached.) Also, you can set the scale of your schedule just like any other section, detail, plan, etc.

    Once you place your GCS on a sheet, click on the GCS and look in Properties. Scroll down to Extents> Segment Start in Viewport and Extents> Segments in Viewport. Here is where you adjust how many pieces of GCS show up on your sheet.

    I think I need a :beer:

        You should also be able to uncheck the "itemize every instance" option in your schedule and this will mean each column type C1 for example, will instead of showing every column, show just 1 instance. You can break this table up also to display over more than one set of columns as you have discovered.
