  1. Hello All, Is there any way of storing script files in a single folder? I'd like to have all the various script pallets gathered in a single folder. Right now, they are interspersed in the RM folders based on alpha order spelling. Short of naming them all starting with a -z- to keep them at the end, keeping them organized seems to be a challenge. Suggestions?
  2. @Kevin Allen It would be in every drawing I get from the scenic dept. They use various options to present to clients and it's a crap shoot as to which layers I need on/off
  3. Is there an easy way of updating/copying current visibilities from my current design layer work into an existing viewport? Without deleting said viewport and making a new one? Or without searching line by line for visibility settings? Let's say I have a template with existing viewports on existing sheet layers. Said viewports will have various layers and classes set to their own visibility settings. Now, let's say I do a bunch of drawing/editing in various design layers. While doing so, I make changes to my current set of drawing layer and class visibility settings.

    This session was recorded, but I’m not sure what they’re doing with it. I’ve been asked to do a webinar sometime in the next couple of months. I’ll keep you posted.
  5. How do I get the truss measurements to convert from metric to imperial automatically in reports?

    Best practice and method for fixed grid rigging?

    What happens when you add a length? Right now I think you're multiplying by zero.

    I'm doing a braceworks session at the design summit on Tuesday.

    2019 Insert truss tool broken

    I just played with this for a bit. For me it's working in the last three builds I've been testing. BUT, the truss file I was testing with crashed a build from June. I"m wondering if it could have something to do with the model of truss? I was testing with Christie truss.

    What happens if duplicate before dragging? Do they snap correctly? Rather than copy/duplicate-drag method?

    System Scaffold as Custom Truss in Braceworks?

    To do rough work with ground supported systems, I simply add hoists above where the rig hits the floor. It gives me downward force loads at said locations. etc...

    Custom Truss

    Yes, maybe, and no. I've built some interesting configurations and Braceworks has given me hoist loads. The big catch is whether your given truss has the info that engineers use to calculate stress and flexibility of the truss itself. I often set my truss to use static numbers and run calculations. Each hoist gets the point loads. I will double check with paper and pencil, etc. If the custom truss doesn't have Braceworks type attributes, then no. However, you can edit and create what you need. With that said, you still need to double check your work, etc. Your mileage may vary 🙂

    The getting started guides is a great place to start: https://www.vectorworks.net/training/2019/getting-started-guides/entertainment/rigging-insert-truss

    Escalator only showing half

    I know I"m missing something. Why is my top/plan only showing half of my escalator? Thanks, Scott

    Vectorworks 2019 Structure Member Tool

    well, in that case, perhaps they'll change my request into a bug report.

    Vectorworks 2019 Structure Member Tool

    I've put in a request to add that tool to Spotlight. Since it's now needed to really use the new bridle tools, etc... Hopefully, they'll add it.
