  1. I suspect this is one of those features that you get used to very quickly - then when you have to go back to using 2018 and earlier again - wonder how you ever coped! I was thinking of returning my eGPU as it didn't make too much of a difference - but sounds like it is worth hanging onto now Thanks again @Jim Wilson great work!

    Teaser Tuesday - Class and Layer Filters - Vectorworks 2019

    Sounds like a great feature! Don't want to start a whole "what's not in 2019" thread - but was really hoping for a GUI update. Cripes VWX feels old now.

    Bring Back Teaser Tuesdays!

    You're getting us excited now Jim! (or are you just making a simple statement?)

    External GPU for MacBook Pro

    Hello all Blackmagic eGPU working well with my 2016 MacBook Pro (USB-C) and 5K LG Monitor. Looking at the activity monitor - the eGPU is doing all the work. I need to put it through its paces properly - but so far so good. Benchmark test score is roughly 5 times better than the built in Radeon Pro 460 (4GB). If any one has any specific tests or files they want me to try, feel free to ask! Cheers, Andrew

    External GPU for MacBook Pro

    Hi I did buy an eGPU box a couple of months ago - but I couldn’t get it to work with my LG 5K monitor. But I have just bought the Blackmagic eGPU which does work with Thunderbolt 3 monitors - picking it up Monday so will let you know how it goes! Andrew

    AMD or Nvidia, any real world comparisons?

    Wonderful - thanks Jim. It has 8GB memory and at £600 over here in the UK not overly expensive I don't think? Just asked Apple Support if the GPU is upgradable and they said no - but not the end of the world. I'll be using it with a 5K display. (LG UltraFine USB-C) Heading over to your side of the Atlantic tomorrow for a week - so will get one ordered for when I get home. Thanks Andrew

    Hi all Just spotted that Apple have released this : https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/product/HM8Y2B/A/blackmagic-egpu with a Radeon Pro 580 It looks like this has a USB-C out - so could be used with the LG UltraFine Thunderbolt 3 display - I think? Any one know if the Radeon Pro 580 is any good / works with Vectorworks? Andrew

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    OK Shame - but all working now regardless! Thanks again for your help!

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    That's perfect! Worked straightaway Thanks so much for your help - hope there will be a native formula added in a future update? Thanks again, Andrew

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    PS - Does seem odd that there is a formula for Current Revision Number, but not date!

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    Thanks Jonathan I've done a work around for now by manually adding a comma at the end of each date - then using the Substring function that Nikolay suggested. Thanks so much! Andrew

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    Thanks! Closer - but it's not registering the delimeter - so I get all revision dates in a long row. Should I add a delimiter manually to the date as a work around?

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    Thanks Nikolay I tried this, but got the following result. If it helps, when I tried just ='Title Block Revision Data'.'Date' (ie - without the Substring) I got : I've obviously entered the Revision date (which I enter manually) in a couple of different formats. Would it help if I re-formatted the Revision date as a date format? It looks like there is no delimiter between each date, which is I guess what causes the Substring to fail? Thanks again Andrew

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    Thanks Jonathan - Tried that and nothing came up.

    Revision Date - can't add to Worksheet

    Sorry to bump this, but does anyone have any ideas? To summarise, I just want to create a report which lists sheet number, sheet title, latest revision and latest revision date. Thanks, Andrew
