    I'm sad to hear you are leaving, but very happy to hear that family is a priority and this is were your energies will be going. Take care Jim and thank you for all your work.

    basic advice on saving and sharing

    I'm no expert; if I were in this situation I would consider exporting the worksheet and create an excel sheet which you can easily modify. You can then import it once you're done, saying that I've not imported a sheet before so I'm not certain of the implications of this.

    VW2019 site model issue

    Hi I'm putting together a site model using shape files from a drone survey. Done this a few times in VW2018, the first time in VW2019. Files import just fine and it looks good in 2d, when I go into a 3d model I'm getting some areas that are blacked out. I repeated the same procedure with a blank fresh file (first was a template file) and I get similar results but the colouring is white instead of black. If I repeat this in VW2018 is works flawlessly, and if I save this file and re-open in VW2019 is looks fine as well... Not sure if anyone has run into this or not?

    Edit data tag

    I've been playing around a bit with the new data tag tool, great addition. Just wondering if there is a way we can easily edit what is displayed in the tag (other than the pre-configured options). I usually have additional information showing in plant tags such as the ID and I was hoping to be able to customize the data tag to show similar info. Love the new tool as it makes it easy to label various plants without worrying about class visibilities, and I hope customization becomes easier. As a side note, I noticed that you can 't make any font or font size changes unless you enter the edit mode.
  7. Just wondering what might have caused a current file that I'm working on to generate over 2000 folders within the resource browser? It appears that all the folders are empty, I'm not certain when this occurred. It was a VW2018 file in it's earlier life. It has tons of existing tree symbols on it which might be related? Thanks for any words of wisdom.

    3D Loci density

    Thanks for that @Benson Shaw I didn't realize that this feature was part of VW 2019.

    Plant tag alignment and rotated plans

    @rowbear97 thanks for that...I didn't realize that this was a new feature of 2019. Looks very useful for Landmark applications, I may never use the traditional tags again.

    Volume Issue with Hardscape/Site model

    Brian do you any grade limits in place? These are an important part of adding a pad, in my experience. I haven't had a great experience using pads with retaining edges but a grade limit should help your situation. I often create a pad, then copy and paste this in place, change this to a grade limits within the OIP, then offset it by whaterever distance you wish. In this image, I offset it by 1'. The model will then place your pad and use the grade limits for just that. There are lots of good videos out there on VW Youtube channel which you might want to check out. A good practice can also be to put all your site modifiers into the same layer your site model exists. Hope that helps...

    So is the 2018 Mac Mini a viable VW machine?

    Ha, quite right...2019 was what was in my mind.

    Imac Pro Vs upgraded/loaded 27" Imac

    We recently upgraded to a 10 core iMac Pro. I would say my workflow has increased by 10%. Super happy with this unit, except to the cost, saying that we are looking at it through the long-term lense...hoping to get 5 good years. We have another workstation which needs to be replaced and we're giving the Mac mini a serious look.

    Super interesting @Rob Glisson we're in the market to replace an old Mac 'Cheese grater' some time in 2019. This looks like a great approach.
