  1. Has anyone been able auto-populate the Room Finish Legend to a Live Worksheet? I'd prefer not to re-generate this every time we issue a drawing set. Ideally the worksheet would identify all unique Finish in one column and their corresponding Description in the second Column (regardless of whether they are Wall or Ceiling or Base materials. For example: FINISH DESCRIPTION GWB-1: 5/8" Gypsum Wallboard. WD-1: Painted Poplar T&G, 3/4" x 5".
  2. Anyone know how to delete the "Import Classes" default files? I will never use AEC-UK-Uniclass2015-ARCHITECT-Ee-Element.vwx for example and it clutters my workflow. Where are these files located in mac VW2019? Thanks.
  3. Two wall tool requests. Walls from Polylines: I would like to have custom Walls that can be generated from a closed poly-line (as opposed to the wall tool that uses two-point "lines") We work with concrete on a lot of our projects and the workaround to make varying thickness or shaped walls is very cumbersome. I can see a simple wall tool edit that can generate shape from a poly-line OR a wall component that can have a "Taper/Shaped/Custom Outline" in the dialogue similar to tapered slab components to generate the geometry. "Free-Standing" Wall Components Free-standing wall components that can "glue-on" to walls. For example, if one room of a project has wood slats on furring strips, I'd have to make a wall type for each wall (exterior, interior, bathroom plumbing walls, that ALSO have furring strips on the side face that room). But I'd rather create a wall that has wood slats and furring strips only and apply it only to the walls facing that room. I would do this with tile, interior finishes, etc as well. Basically, re-orient how VW thinks of wall assemblies to align to how real-world assemblies are realized.
  4. @JuanP Can we also put Viewport Edit Class & Layer edit dialog boxes into a combined window with Class & Layer tabs, so you dont have to click out and back in to edit settings?
  5. I was also thinking about this... How about Unit Styles: They could work like text styles and be called out from a menu wherever you have a unit displayed? I would set up Feet-Inches (1/4" precision), Metric (cm/.1), Feet only (.1), Area (sq. ft. / .1) etc.
  6. I would like to have an option where VW appends a prefix- or -suffix to classes at export. We export DWG to coordinate with consultants. Since they don't have a Class/Layer setup, things get very complicated very fast. For walls on the in VW are on Class: A-Wall & Layer: 1st Floor Plan or 2nd Floor Plan In AutoCAD that wall would end up on: Layer: A-Wall (stacked on top of each other) I would prefer to append the AutoCAD so the walls end up on: Layer: A-Wall-1st Floor Plan Layer: A-Wall-2nd Floor Plan or some version of that. And the same for Plumbing fixtures & Doors & Windows, etc.
  7. Has this changed since 2012? I like to use tree symbols and scale them. Our local reg's dictate how close you can build near "protected" trees and I like to scale the symbol based on the formula dictated by the city (and then I populate the required tree table based on these symbols) BUT, I have to manually enter data (tree diameter) because I can auto-populate the symbol scaling factor...
  8. Stairs should allow you to pick from all designated levels, not just "[Story Above]" Could be separate Selections Top Bound: Select Story: Select Level: Top Offset: On mult-level or split level structures, "Story Above" can be quite limiting.
  9. From Manuel ( just downloaded my 2018 set): dear VectorBITS user, this message is to notify that VectorBITS plugins are now available for VW2018. best regards Manuel Garcia de Paredes V e c t o r B I T S
  10. From Manuel: hi Hector, I will try to release updated plugins ASAP. I will let you know when they are available. best regards Manuel Manuel Garcia de Paredes V e c t o r B I T S http: // www.vectorbits.org
  11. VectorMove is/was awesome. It was doing this before VW caught up... I also like the VectorStretch, which VW has not imitated yet... If Manuel is no longer writing VB plugins, VW should buy up his tools immediately...
  12. Any update on this? I've been having the exact same problem. -Thanks
  13. Any update on this issue? I am having sheet border vanish after updating embedded symbols (or other title block symbol edits)...
