  1. Nice share @_c_! Finally got my group widgets working after months of trial and error. My widget indent calls were in the kObjOnWidgetPrep function not the kObjOnInitXProperties. (Funny that indentation works in kObjOnWidgetPrep without the Grouping) Again, thank you and thank you.
  2. I'll chime in for the NZ market, we are using the MasterSpec system that has plugins for both Archicad and Revit (Master Key). If we could get integration for vectorworks that would be awesome! https://masterspec.co.nz/
  3. We have also transitioned into vw2021, from vw2019, and just getting my head around the General Notes/Call Out Notes/Notes Manager workflow. A colleague who is setting up notes for the General Notes tool has found out that you can't Add multiple notes at the same time with this new workflow. You were able to in 2019. Is this WAD?
  4. I may have a copy of 12.5 somewhere. I have used in past for Windows 10 successfully, opening older projects for clients wanting changes/renovations some 10 years later! I will PM you, @Victoria Bowles
  5. Another thing that comes to mind is the position of the model in the design layer. We've noticed if you draw too far away from the origin, or your model is too far away, the openGL render craps out.

    Set a class to the roof object. And control the fill/pen attributes (colors) through that. Once it is classed, you can also then set this new roof class you've created to gray visibility when you're in plan view, and then set visibility back to visible when in 3D view.
  7. =('VAA Title Block'.'__DwgScale') __DwgScale is the field you're looking for
  8. wow, I did not know this. Very similar to the script I have. Apart from not being able to pre-select scaling conditions:
  9. +1 to have the Titleblock do this automatically, even for the numerical scale part of the titleblock. I wrote a script that automatically fills in scale info from viewports at time of publishing. In instances where we have you multiple viewports with different scales on the same sheet, you preset what you want the script behavior to be (largest scale/smallest scale of collected viewports on sheet, or concatenate scales, or display 'as shown'). It makes sense that a functionality should be added into the titleblock object, as it is such a pain publishing your 100 page set, then realising scales were not set correctly. (That's what happened to us, and that's why the script was written 😁)
  10. Hmm, yes that is what I'm currently doing, importing then deleting. I thought there was a different way. Thanks for the insight. I'm looking at the build resource list calls, in what use case would the addResoureceToList function call be used for? Is it just a container mechanism for VS? The same functionality can be done using lists in python correct?
  11. Greetings, I'm trying to read default record field values from another file using the BuildResourceListN function: def vs.BuildResourceListN(type, fullPath): return (LONGINT, numItems) I manage to read in the record names from the other file, however using the GetResourceFromList function returns NIL on resource handles. And, as the dev wiki documentation describes, this will return NIL if resource is not in document. Is there another function call I'm missing? or is this not possible. I see that the titleblock tool can open and display issue data from another file. How is it doing this? @JBenghiat, @Vlado, anyone? Thanks in advance
  12. Maybe create a temporary symbol > add all other symbols in there > place on drawing > export as image > delete temporary symbol
  13. To add to this discussion, we have found that unchecking 'subset fonts' reduces the file size quite a lot. Approx. file size reductions i'd say 8Mb to 200kb.
  14. Possibly the level of error checking in Visual Studio? I use PyCharm and have not much experience in VS. Pycharm recommends the h is not None flavor. Using the h != None, displays a warning to adjust my code.
  15. Ahh yes, that would be me, I forgot I had even signed up as a contributor.
