  1. Hello, Landmark user here. I am curious if the Architect license has a preformatted report for Walls created using the Wall Tool. That would be very useful for me for the walls we build in Landmark. I'm just curious if your license comes with that. Landmark does not. ALSO - I found a page in the Help Menu called "Worksheet tutorial: Creating a wall schedule" that shows how to create a worksheet that displays the Wall Area (gross), Wall Area (net), and Wall Thickness. Is there a way to display Face Feet? That is what I'm trying to extract from my wall. Thanks! Anna
  2. I would like to see a new Mode setting in the Stake Tool – to display the elevation of a smart object. It should be able to display the elevation of a Hardscape, Wall, etc., top or bottom elevation.
  3. Hello, I have several saved views that I would like to make sheet layer viewports from and the viewports need to have a camera that I can adjust later. Do saved views have a camera that I can find and access? If so, where? Thank you, Anna
  4. @The Anorak I have this issue as well. There is currently no way to get the north arrow to follow directions from the Heliodon or the file Georeferencing for that matter. My workaround is to rotate the north arrow by 90 degrees from what north is in Design Space. If your work in Design Space has a 0.0 degree rotation, place a North Arrow directly on the sheet - not in Annotation space - and rotate it 90 degrees in the direction you need.
  5. Hello, I am editing the terrain model on a project to reflect the tunnel that is there. I'm trying to figure out the most realistic outcome that is possible to do. Is there a site modifier that will actually punch a hole through both sides of terrain to make a tunnel? What are my options? It just needs to be somewhat realistic, not perfect. I'm attaching a 3D view of the model so you can see what I'm working on. Thank you! Anna
  6. @Pat Stanford ?! Having the Long/Lat stored at part of the PIO record would be amazing. Frankly, I assumed that was already there, but hey, I'm always grateful for enhancements and for customer requests being heard. 60 days, I assume you're referring the release of v2021 - is it that time of year already?! Wow. I can wait 60 days if you're advocating on my behalf to get this feature fulfilled. Thank you so much. Georeferenced data is integral to so many of our projects and sometimes we need to be able to display on a map the location of a feature (for example, a data tag that displays the Long/Lat for each tree). We sometimes work with environmental scientists who collect 'threatened and endangered' plant and animal gis data and they hire us to map the location of these existing features. For this particular project, we were producing shapefiles for a project partner who will train "citizen scientists" to monitor the trees for the purpose of gathering climate change data. So the shapefiles we produce out of Vectorworks are not just for something mundane like knowing where to construct the planting beds. The shapefiles are not the end of the project but the beginning of the next phase of the project. As we speak, people in Gary, Indiana are discussing the project, developing educational signage, and beginning to receive training that complies with the National Phenology Network program. It's a very exciting project and we hope to do more of them. Thank you so much, Anna
  7. I have locus points for proposed trees and a worksheet displaying information about the trees: ID, Latin Name, Common Name. I want to add the Longitude and Latitude of each tree to the worksheet but I cannot find what function to use in the cell to display that. I have a georeferenced file. I'm waiting for an email reply from tech support but this is urgent and I have no idea how long it'll take to hear back. Does anyone know how to display Latitude and Longitude? I've attached a screenshot of my file showing the Data tab of one of the objects that needs Longitude, Latitude displayed. It also shows the worksheet I have set up for displaying the tree info. What function goes in those dang cells? By the way, Xcenter, Ycenter, XCoordiante, YCoordinate do NOT work - they display the location based on x,y of the file not taking the georeferenced location into account. Having said all that, I'm a bit worried the trees are not in the correct location. The location of the highlighted tree locus in the file is 2882818'9", 2315428'6.156" while the coordinates of this location (Gary, Indiana) are 41 North and 87 West. Also, to help you understand what you're looking at, the tree loci are a shapefile I exported from my project file and imported into this file for the purpose of checking on what I produced. This shapefile is a deliverable to the client who will put the tree location shapefile into an app so that people can locate the trees as part of a national science project. Thank you! Anna
  8. @Carlos Sainz - Yes! I've been in contact with tech support about this and I think they now understand. I hope this can be fixed soon. For now, I know that I rotated my georeferenced north "design space" 90 degrees to the right, so I placed north arrows on the sheets and rotated those 90 degrees to the right. It got me through.
  9. @Kevin C, the north arrow does not always have to be facing up. It is acceptable to rotate the drawing in construction drawings - as long as the north arrow is pointing in the direction of north for the drawing presented, of course.
  10. What is the recommended way to rotate the view in a viewport so that north is not up but to the right? I have been able to do it by creating the viewport in design space with design space using a temporary rotation. But the north arrow in that viewport still points up. I am unable to rotate the north arrow because it is following the georeferencing of the file, which is what I of course want it do. I don't want to do any funky stuff to "make it work". I want to set this up the way that Vw wants me to do it. What is that?
  11. What version are you working in? Vectorworks 2020 says it can import a GeoTiff. http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FImport%2FImporting_georeferenced_images.htm&rhsearch=geotiff&rhhlterm=geotiff&rhsyns= Having said that, I'm here because I'm having a problem importing a GeoTiff right now and I'm working in v2020...
  12. This would be just like the automated numbering of existing trees using the Existing Tree tool, which allows you to set a prefix (such as a capitol letter E) to the automated numbering system. It starts at 01 and counts up as high as you need it to go. This is of particular importance on a project with lots of trees, and we get one of those at least once every year. We currently have a project with 1,400 existing trees that we need to manage, and we'd like to give that same level of detail to the hundreds of proposed trees. With individualized tree IDs, we or the client can better manage tree care and planting schedules (e.g. I'm going to plant tree numbers 01-50 this year, numbers 51-80 within three years, numbers 81-100 within five years.) Please make this possible!!!!! Thanks, Anna
