  1. These issues are all related to existing plant symbols from 2012 files that have been upgraded into 2013. I find that when I am starting from scratch in 2013 using the directions form migration guideline then everything is fine. I also don't have the choice to keep working in 2012, because our office upgraded to 2013 a while ago; all the projects have been imported into 2013 and there has been too much completed work on other aspects of the projects and it is now too cost prohibitive to go back to 2012. Its the plants-people who want to back save to 2012 because of the issues mentioned above.
  2. Display tag marker is not checked on any of my plant symbols neither in definition dialogue box or in the object info palette. When I select the plant symbol itself the the markers are not turned in the Attributes palette. The attributes palette does not show markers as on when nothing is selected. When I go to the edit the attributes of the Tag Class the markers buttons are not accessible, and they do not appear to be on anyway. In the end I did a work around by changing the Tag Class default marker to a double line with 0 line thickness for both left and right, and even though the markers aren't turned on anywhere it worked. The markers do not show at the ends of the leader line, they show up at both ends of the line that splits the Tag Bubble Circle in half and only after the symbol regenerates with any kind of edit in 2013. The other issue I have with plant symbols that were already placed in 2012 and then brought into 2013, is that whenever I edit the plant no minor how minor, all the instances of that plant jump back to their default locations with respect to leader angles and shoulder angles when they regenerate. Means you can't edit any plants without having to manually reset every instance back to the location that they had been previously set at -very time consuming. I read the migration guide and all the other posts before posting this. I couldn't find anything that addressed these particular problems.
  3. I was able to get rid of the markers on the symbol graphic but I still can't remove them from the tags.
  4. Also -- I have discovered that the markers do not appear on an existing plant symbol until I click on the plant object to make any sort of edit, uneven an edit unrelated to the attributes, such as editing the path. Once the edit is completed the markers spontaneously appear on the tag, and sometime on the symbol graphic itself when they weren't there prior to the path edit. This is occurring on a fairly large project that I have been working on since 2011, and there is no time to figure these weirdnesses out when the drawing has to go to be issued in fairly short order. This appears to be some sort of 2013 glitch and not necessarily related to my fluency in VW.
  5. This is a snapshot from an existing drawing that I brought into 2013. Now the plant tags are showing arrowhead markers that didn't exist in 2012. I have tried editing the classes both for the class for the tag, but cannot access the toggle button for markers from the attributes palette while the active symbol and tag are selected. I have also tried selecting "remove by class settings" and alternatively "use default attributes" and nothing seems to remove or even change the markers. I also tried applying a custom marker with a "0 mils" line weight. There does not appear to be a "None" option for markers in the class setting. Does anyone have any ideas?
  6. OK I will have to do that tomorrow when I am at the office as I don't use VW2010 at home. Thanks.
  7. Yes, I do. And now that you mention, my co-worker had the same problem and at some point we got the attributes to re-appear and it seemed to be related to either checking or unchecking Use at Creation. We got a dialogue box if you wanted to apply to the graphic attributes of the new class to the objects, and when we said 'Yes' then we got the attributes back. However, a couple of steps later the attributes disappeared again and we tried to duplicate what we had done previously with the Use at Creation checkbox, but we weren't getting the dialogue box asking to apply to the objects...and were stymied.
  8. I just brought a 2009 file into VW2010. I had already placed the plant symbols (with their associated tags) in the 2009 version of the file. While In VW2010, I noticed that some of the plant symbols were on the wrong class ('L-Text' instead of 'L-Planting') so I changed them to the 'L-Planting' class. This switch appears to have made the Plant tag lose its graphic attributes. The plant tag uses its own class called 'L-PlantTags' which I set up in the plant tag class in the default prefs in the 'edit definition' of plant symbol preferences palette) The 2010 Object Info palette shows that the plant tag is still using 'L-PlantTags', and the graphic attributes for the class 'L-Plant tags' shows a solid line weight of 2 and no fill, which is what I want it to be. The Object Info is also showing that the Tag Bubble is set at 'Circle', also as I want. All the settings appear to be correct, but I do not see a plant bubble at all now that I have switched the plant's class. I still see the tag leader, shoulder as well as the text that the bubble would surround. Any suggestions?
