  2. Click on the Utilities tab in the top menu.
  3. Click on the ‘Rename Building and Floor’ button.
  4. Select the desired Building Code and Room Number.
  5. Click Ok.
  6. Click on the ARCHIBUS tab in the top menu.
  7. Step missed in video: Catalogue your rm and gros layers
  8. Publish Enterprise Graphics.
  9. Save the drawing.
  10. Move necessary files, if needed, into the correct folders for the drawing.
