  2. @markdd Your right, but they do not work when the layers are referenced into a new project using Layer Reference.
  3. Hmm, This technology sounds like a direct VR link could be in the future? Sending the workspace to a headset, even allowing basic editing or texturing in VR.
  4. Would be great if Data Tags could be used in annotations for elevations and link to the windows and doors to call them up in Elevation when the project layers are referenced.
  5. Hi @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Yes, That's the setting I missed thank-you.
  6. The stake objects for the DTM allows users to choose which units to display, this functionality should be added to the elevation benchmark tool. (And Record Formats & Data Tags) Attached is a screenshot or of the current elevation benchmark, and a portion of the Stake Object showing the ability to choose units.
  7. You can create a database of "Data Tags" but it can't seem to filter by style, or display the style being used. Any Ideas? Optimally I want to create a database of all data tags used in a file with a certain name and call up the parameters to check their values.
  8. Is there a way to get the data tag to show secondary units when having it show a dimensional value?
  9. @twk Yes it is working, thank-you for your solution it works really well!
  10. @twkVery interesting solution. Thank-you for taking the time to respond with such depth and detail. Unfortunately I am unable to get it to work. I have attached a file, perhaps I missed something? ALLCAPSPython.vwx
  11. Is there the ability to make a VW 2019 file ALL CAPS? Including databases and text styles. So far my workaround has been to manually type in CAPS, but the database header has got me stumped. I must be missing something. Any help is appreciated. Thank you
  12. +1 Sketchup 2018 supported required. Please update, so we don't have to ask designers to send older versions.
  13. Is there the ability to turn other objects visible when editing a symbol inside a viewport annotation?
  14. Totally experiencing this issue. It is a brutal bug, working on an apartment building and furniture showing up everywhere it shouldn't. I'm guessing its related to there new low, med, high feature. When a class is off it should never show up. My current workaround is to use the Detail Level low and turn off symbols that are inside of unit plan symbols. I hope VW's fixes this soon.
  15. Check out your Navigation Graphics settings. I had issues until I adjusted the settings. https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/58922-beware-of-navigation-graphics-settings/&page=0#comment-293972
  16. I believe this should be considered a bug, or at min. not desirable behaviour. Page based symbols do not display correctly when Navigation Graphics is set to Best Compatibility. This may be is a result of my graphics card, but certain things should always show. - Create a page based symbol - when inserted into a section viewport it scales down based on the scale of the viewport it seems. - when a crop is applied to a viewport the symbol increases in size? If you print a PDF it displays correctly. Page Based Symbol.vwx
  17. Hi Pat, I should clarify, by Multi View, I am referring to Multi View Panes where your screen divides into different views.
  18. Black viewports still happening in 2019 ūüėě Only solution that works for me is to restart vw's.
  19. If your experiencing objects disappearing it maybe due to the Navigation Graphics setting under preferences. See attached screen recording of the effects between - Best Performance - Good Performance and compatibility - Best compatibility Navigation Graphics.mov
  20. Bug Alert, This works with simple object for example draw a rectangle and make it a symbol, the same behaviour will persist. With a hybrid symbol, open "multiple views panes". Edit the 2D component of the symbol, the 2D objects disappear. Also happens when editing a symbol containing symbols, if a symbol is 2D only it will disappear when entering the root symbol with multiple views on. See Screen recording. Very frustrating behaviour!! Screen Symbol.mov
  21. I think this might be a bug. Space area in a database does not return the expected value in 2019. Space Issue 2018.vwx Space Issue 2019.vwx
  22. I can't find the syntax to reference the Layer Description in a worksheet database listing the layers in the file. Anybody know where to find this or what it is?
  23. @Vasil Kitanov Thank-you for looking at this, perhaps VW's in the future can provide more information with their pop up, with reasons why its not supported.
