AddDuct Popup

What is the chance of adding the "use take-off /use tee" and the ability to
select square or radius ells to the addduct pop-up box. When running duct
sometimes square and radius ells are required in the same run of duct. Also
some connections require the use of tee connection and some require
take-offs. These requirements are usually determined by the size of the
duct and branch connection, or in the case of the ells, space restrictions.

As the program now runs, when drawing the run you have to close out of the
addduct command, bring up the duct pref. command, change the connection/ell
configuration, close out of the duct pref., then go back to the add duct
command.

This change would save a lot of time.

Pat,
You dont need to close the Add Duct dialog to use the preferences. There is
a "Preferences" button on the Add Duct dialog that you can use in the middle
of your layout. In addition if you click on the right side of the
"Preferences" button (on the down arrow icon), you will see a menu popup
that shows all the fittings and your default fitting preference too. The
default is one with the check mark next to it. You can change your default
elbow (or any fitting for that matter) here without even going to the
Preferences dialog. Hope this helps.
