Known Issues

It has been reported that this version of the software does not work on the French version of Revit 2019. No support/refunds will be given if you cannot run the software on the French version of revit 2019.

If you have trouble licensing copy of software, please check your Control Panel>Add/Remove> see if there are two copies of Auditorium Maker installed. If there are two copies installed, remove both and install one.

It is recommended you create a sketch that has an arc in the rear of the seating layout. This arc can be created by simply offsetting the inner arc.

It works with multiple monitors, but does not remember which screen the dialogs were set to.

May run slower when "borrowing" elements to edit. Check out worksets before using seating layout tools and modify tools for maximum performance.

Does not support seating layouts that have seating layout arcs greater than 179 degrees. The workaround is to separate the layout into more than one piece.
