    Space labels keep scaling

    Thanks Bo that is what we experience as well - I don't know if this is intended or not. You can use text scaling to change the size of the space label in the Sheet Layer Viewport but that can have other unintended effects.

    Space labels keep scaling

    HI Sean, Let us know how you get on - another issue we have found that Space Label Symbols scale with the SLVP scale irrespective of whether they are World Based or Paged Base - I'm not sure if this is expected behavior or not, for us it would be useful if the page based symbols behaved like other page based symbols so that the text was the same size on different scales of drawings.

    Text wrap in symbols

    Hi Jim, This is similar to my query on wrapping texts in title blocks - do you know if it has been implemented yet? Thanks! Tim
  5. Hi Jim, is that likely to come in a Service Pack or not till a future version? Thanks, Tim

    Worksheet - Sum of Database Items (Area Totals)

    At a guess you have =('Space'.'11_Area') in your database header rather than =('Space'.'Area') - this is the difference between 'Space Area' and Space Area Number when you are selecting fields under create report. If you change the header to =('Space'.'Area') it should work - you will have to add the 'sq m' as a trailer to the cell formatting.

    Layer Appearance in Viewports

    I have looked at this in a bit more detail - 3D items can have colour overrides but only in standard viewports (not section viewports) and only in wire frame not in hidden line, which isn't much use for 3D work.

    Layer Appearance in Viewports

    This is an old thread I know, we use layer colour overrides in viewports successfully to show demolished and new works with 2D layers. I was just wondering if anyone knows if the layer colour override should wprk for Section Viewports as well, so we can do the same thing with elevations generated from our model? - it doesn't seem to work for me at the moment?
  9. I would like to locate an office standard colour palette in our common Workgroup and Project Folder for everyone to access. However any colour palette xml files that we put in the common folder (Libraries\Defaults\Colour Palettes) do not appear as an option in the Colour Palette Browser? If the same xml file is located in the User Data and Preference Folder (which is unique to each user) then it does appear in the Colour Pallette Browser? I could put the file in each users folder but it would be better and easier if there was only one instance of it in the common folder. Has anyone set up standard colour pallettes using the Workgroup and Project Folder? Thanks, Tim

    Small script for move by points tool

    Can you not just use the 'I' key to toggle it - or whatever you have set as the shortcut key for mode group 2 - check tools/workspace/edit current workspace & 'keys' tab to see what you currently have set for mode group 2?

    Copying Viewports Between Files

    Just a quick update - it seems this has been 'fixed' in VW 2015 at least, shame as it was a very useful feature.

    problems with wall area in Worksheet

    You can add a thin paint component like Wes says to unstyled walls as well as styled ones, and then just adjust the thickness of the middle component manually as you would the overall thickness, although it involves a few extra clicks to get there? That area can then be scheduled using the CompAreabyName function that Alan notes?

    DWG Export of Hidden Line Elevation

    There is also an issue if you have a hidden line foreground render and render works background - only the rendered background (+ any annotations) exports not the hidden line which is usually the bit you are trying to get as a DWG.

    Suspend Groups/2D Reshape Groups

    You would be able to edit the other groups - with the settings as you describe you can see/snap other groups but you can't change them, or am I missing something?
  15. It would be useful to have a suspend groups function for times when you want to select items that are contained within a group and edit them (swap out a symbol for instance, or change text properties). Also related but perhaps different the 2D reshape tools doesn't work on groups - it would be very useful if it could (or if groups could be suspended to allow it as noted above)
