  1. Thx for the suggestion @bcd Unfortunately this isn't the best solution, but a good workaround. We will give it a go. Maybe someone somewhere has a script to batch export design layers? 🙂
  2. Hi Pat, Unfortunately I need access to the angle / rotation of the wall to set a range of values. The goal would be to visualise walls drawn slightly out, currently we use a worksheet. Wall Rotation.vwx
  3. Wondering if any one has a script to automatically create a saved view for each design layer? I have 500+ design layers I need to publish as a PDF, in lue of making a sheet layer w/ viewport for each or a manual save view.
  4. Hello All, In VW2022, It appears that Walls are missing from the 'Objects using Parameter'. Is this a bug? Will walls be added? I am looking at getting the 'angle' property to have a Visualization of walls that are rotated between ranges.
  5. Any others having the same issue? Bug submitted today, happens on Mac and windows here. Environment Vectorworks Version : v2022 SP1.1 (619242) Vectorworks Product : Design Suite, Renderworks Operating System : Mac OS 11.6 iMac, 27-inch Mid 2015 3.3 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 16 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 AMD Radeon R9 M290 2 GB Bug Title Curtain wall Bottom Offset fails to extend the wall below 0 from 0 and freezes the application. Bug Description Editing an existing curtain wall to have a bottom offset below ‘0’ to be a negative number fails to generate and freezes the application when the bottom offset is at 0. If the Bottom offset is a positive number, then going below 0 the wall will generate. It only occurs when the bottom offset is set at 0 to start. Steps to Reproduce 1. Open a blank file, draw a standard wall, or a curtain wall from the start. 2. Change the standard wall type to a curtain wall. 3. The bottom bounds should be set to layer elevation. 3. Edit the bottom offset of the wall to be a negative number below 0. 4. Application freezes, requiring a force quit. What is the expected (correct) behavior? That the wall will move in the desired direction without freezing. What is the current (bug) behavior? The application freezes.
  6. Any one have an update to this out of curiosity?
  7. @JMR Thank-you, Yes it did I just missed the file previous, thx for your quick response 🙂
  8. @JMR Are you able to repost the file?

  10. @markdd Your right, but they do not work when the layers are referenced into a new project using Layer Reference.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hi @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Yes, That's the setting I missed thank-you.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Is there a way to get the data tag to show secondary units when having it show a dimensional value?
  17. @twk Yes it is working, thank-you for your solution it works really well!
  18. @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
  19. 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
  20. +1 Sketchup 2018 supported required. Please update, so we don't have to ask designers to send older versions.
  21. Is there the ability to turn other objects visible when editing a symbol inside a viewport annotation?
  22. 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.
  23. 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
