  1. Did you already try simply using the legacy tool instead of the new tool? We have a couple of newer tools that don't work well with our current workflow, so we just use the old tool until our workflow system catches up. Open the workplace editor (tools>workspaces>edit current workspaces), click the tools tab, go to recent changes and find the tool that was removed and drag it back into your palette.
  2. Well that is 40x slower.....Can someone explain why this tool is better than the old tool, how to properly use it, or how to get the old tool back?
  3. I searched the forums, but ion;y came up with a request someone made in 2014 to have Digital Signatures added to VW Architect. Has there been any change in this recently? Florida (and presumably many other states) requires a Digital Certificate to verify a signature on a drawing.
  4. Great! As usual, I was looking in the wrong spot. Thanks! I'll give this a try.
  5. I use layers as containers for types of details at similar scales....3/4"/ft wall sections on a layer, typical toilet room details on a layer, etc. Is there a way to grab an entire layer from one file and insert into a new file without having to copy and paste the geometry?
  6. OK, I found where switching the site model to Proposed Only causes the area of my site to turn white while the rest of the site model remains green. I have't found an explanation of what a texture bed is, what it is for, how the model knows what is proposed vs existing for the logic behind that function, or how to control the 3D graphics display of the model. It doesn't seem too be tied to the 3D graphics dialog box....or I don't know what I'm doing (most likely scenario).
  7. Thank you for the input. Terrain>Send to surface added the line to my model. I can't seem to figure out how the texture bed thing is supposed to work nor have I found any tutorials that explain it. Are the 2012 and 2015 tutorials still valid? I have a property line object, but it has no effect on the model. Does is matter if the property line Z elevation is 0 and the lowest contour of the model is 520? I tried changing the property line Z elevations, but it didn't seem to make a difference.
  8. I have a 3D site model generated from CAD topo lines. The CAD file came with other graphic information such as property lines, etc. These things display correctly in 2D, but I would like to be able to see them on the 3D model as well. Is there an typical method for making this happen?
  9. I am having a similar issue in 2020 SP3.1. When I pull up a floating view pane, it is completely blank. Nothing I do seems to enable me to use it. Operator error? Or is there a problem with the software?
  10. Thanks for the clarification. It seems like making all Z values = 0 would be much simpler conceptually and practically.
  11. The latest (2019, Service Pack 3) still doesn't seem to be working as intended. Or I still don't know where the switch to turn that feature on is located.
  12. Reporting back that the new Data Tag Tool is not very flexible.....or I'm using it wrong.
  13. Thank you JMR. Indeed that was the largest of my problems. I hope to have some time soon to really get to the bottom of how Schedules works. I suspect it will take some practice and hair pulling to get it to work the way it needs to. I door schedules are easiest to deal with if you take the time to load a bunch of typical doors with preselected characteristics into your template file to minimize having to individually modify criteria on a door by door basis later on? It seems to be easier early in the project to not work about anything other than width, but then all those other characteristics have to be manipulated on a door by door basis, which is really slow. Best practices insight appreciated.
  14. Claes, Thanks again for the help. That appears to have worked. I performed the operation while in an isometric view however, and got a really bizarre result. So, I backed up and did it again while in plan view and got a result that looked as expected. I don't know that I understand the specific reasons why the commands used gave me these results, however. I assume it has to do with the plane of the screen?
  15. Thank you for the help. I've been pulled away to work on other things, but hope to get back to working on this soon.
