  1. To provide more information about how annoying this is - we have 20,000 plants approx across 17 different sites and associated schedules and 20 different actual plant symbol types. To manually go to every single site and click on every single draughted group of each plants to get it to wake up is simply not feasible. The resource browser only shows one symbol in the file - but when individual daughted symbols within the document are selected the information is different (as can be seen int he above screen shot) and the plants appear twice on the schedule or not at all with their different data displayed. We have probably spend 8 hours on trying to work out what is going on and have a project due in a few days. We can't risk getting the plant numbers wrong. All we have managed to figure out is it something to do with IFC data, as this is what appears different. Aaaughhh dying a slow death ūüėě
  2. We have a client who manages a program of annual/seasonal colour plants in public open spaces. We design the displays and the plants are in their individual pots within their displays. The Client can obtain data about the performance of the plants during the display - for example the height at a certain week, how many of a particular plant needed replacement etc, if some plants needed extra water, if some plants required less water. We would like to utilise this information to ensure our designs begin to be more robust and so that the client can schedule replacements, extra watering etc better. For instance - if we nominated a bulb and had the data that indicated it needed replacement at week 5 after installation, how could we draught this plant symbol and then produce a report to say to replace them at that week? Say for instance we nominate a plant which we know needed 10% replaced at week 7 would be another typical senario.
  3. We have recently started using the Titleblock manager to control/update fields across our whole documentation set. However, we are finding that it freezes when we try to update the fields. For instance to add a Version stamp to the titleblock across 46 sheets yesterday took 45minutes to process. In other files the problem has been the same and every individual titleblock has been edited which is then quicker - however there is the risk a field will be missed and the entire process will need to be done again. Another frustration is that every other person has to close out of shared files to use the file - which seems to be logical, except for if someone is working on a planting plan and another person just needs to issue the concept set. Are other people having this problem? Have other people had this problem and been able to resolve it. Thanks
  4. We have developed a printing problem in 2020 and 2021 versions, in the last two weeks. When we publish a pdf, the pdf opens like usual but we are unable to print it. However, when we pdf individual sheets on the same settings and each individual page can then be printed with no problem. As far as I can tell this problem started when we installed the latest service patch for the two versions. It isn't an individual file problem as its in three different files we have tested. Any hints on what is going on?
  5. I have Landmark 2009 and renderworks. I am having difficulty with a number of files. I can't zoom in and out well. I zoom in and a get a split second glimps of what I should see - the it flicks back to the original view, fades slowly and then returns to the view as it should be seen. I had at first thought that it only occured if I had attached 3D info to the plants but have now realised that this is not the case. Even when I turn all the fill classes of and just view as black and white lines it still happens. I have a GeForce 8300 with the current driver and a AMD processor. Should this graphics card to able to handle it? Please help as it takes about 20minutes to make small adjustments which should take about 30seconds.
