  1. THIS. As well, the description of the Rotate Tool should say something about polar coordinate rotation.
  2. I've been having this issue for a few months now off and on. I just came to the Forums today to see if there is a fix for it. Anna Arbetter
  3. Because I don't want to have two of every Data Tag, one that has text right-justified and the other left-justified.
  4. I have two reasons for this request: 1. I am trying to get my data tags that have a "horizontal position" to the Left to have the text be aligned to the right. The only way I can see to do this is to edit each Data Tag individually within the Settings. That's a lot of slow, inefficient work. I could instead adjust the alignment a bit using the width handle if it were possible. 2. I want to be able to adjust the overall width of the tag text to keep it on the sheet and adjust the number of lines of wrapped text. [If you like this request, or any other, be sure to click the Vote icon, not the Like icon!] Thanks!
  5. Pat, I'm not sure what you mean in your last sentence. I'll try to clarify what I'm looking for just in case I wasn't clear. It would be the "same" as what is working now, except instead of outputting an X for 'present', it would output the area quantity. This is the square footage of the part of the object that falls within the Query Area selected for that column. Let me know if that helps or changes your take on it. Thanks again! Anna
  6. Aha, I thought it would be something like that. It is working and IT. IS. FABULOUS! I'm going to write up an explanation and create a Wish List post for this feature. This alone, this simple thing, is important for landscape users. I have one more thing to ask if you can do. An improvement on this. For a polygon that spans two query areas, do you know of a way to output the square footage of the partial polygon per area? For example, a 250 square foot polygon spans Area 1 and Area 2. Instead of outputting an X in each query column for present/not present, the square footage of each would be displayed. Say, 200sf in Area 1 and 50 sf in Area 2. Is this possible, by script or other method?? Anna
  7. I just sent you a Message and included everything I think you'll need. Thanks so much, this feature/capability is SO needed!
  8. I guess I did not explain that well. They are two large, closed, polygons. See attachment of zoomed out view. I selected the two polygons so they are highlighted. They share a common boundary, which was the "line" you could see in the previous screenshot.
  9. Pat, Many objects are fully in Area 1 or Area 2. Some do cross both. See attachment. I added an orange arrow pointing to the pink line. The pink line is actually two complete polygons and at this point zoomed in, you can only see the line where they are adjacent. Area 1 is on the left, 2 on the right. Example, the two dark pink rectangles in the upper right are dumpsters. Those should easily be captured by Area 2. Anna
  10. Pat, It's still not working in my project file. Any idea why? The database row is set to select criteria from a record format: =DATABASE(NOTINREFDLVP & NOTINDLVP & ('Stormwater'.'Site Features'<>' - ')) Anna
  11. Pat, Looks like it's working, see attachment. What is your script expecting? Perhaps the way it is set up does not work with the way I have things set up. Anna
  12. Pat, The name of my area is the object/IFC name of a polygon. Is that okay? I re-copied and pasted your script and double checked everything, and nothing is populating. The cells are blank. See attachment. What am I missing? Anna
  13. Pat, I was at first getting this error message, see attachment "IsLoc error message", before I realized I was using the wrong name for my area. Then I corrected the name and now I'm getting the error message shown in "Screenshot_IsLoc error message when using correct name.jpg". (by the way, I changed all the places you had NameofLoc to the name of one of my locations. I used "Outfall Area 1 query")
  14. Pat, Are you saying I need both of these things together to make it work? I would add the formula to the cell and also run the script? What's the process/steps for that? I've never used a script in tandem with a worksheet. Here is an image of my updated worksheet where I'm trying to get the Xs to work using the IF statement. Can I have more than one in a cell? If 1 it shows an X, if 2 it shows a dash. I'm still trying to figure out what to do when something is within both Area 1 and Area 2. THANKS! I'll start trying your function and vectorscript right now. ps. I'd love to know how to save the script as a resource in our Workgroup folder accessible through the Resource Manager, if that's what you meant.
  15. I hoping to set up this worksheet with columns that indicate location of Site Features instead of using row criteria to group Site Features by location. Currently, I can set the Location in each database row to select criteria that is "Location is within Outfall Area #1" or "Location is within Outfall Area #2". But I'd rather create more of a table with Xs in the cell indicating if a Site Feature is within Outfall Area #1 or 2, or both 1 and 2 (an X in each column). What do I need to set in the column cell so that it will populate the cells below with an X (for true/yes) or no X (for false/no)? THANKS! This will help me with so many worksheets in the future. Anna ps. Don't worry about what an outfall/outfall area is if you don't know. Just think of this as an area. Having said that, if you are employed by Vectorworks, please learn about outfall areas, drainage areas, watersheds, etc and add knowledge/capabilities to Vectorworks Landmark!!!!!!!!!! Thank you.
  16. Provide a dashboard (under a user’s account) that allows a user to track history and see status. A user would be able to delegate access to others (like coworkers) so that everyone within an organization can see the status, actions, and resolution (if available) of a support ticket. Thanks! Anna
  17. Can I only get coordinates from a stake object or can I use this method to get the coordinates of an object (a custom symbol)?
  18. Please hit the "vote" button to the left side of the original post (an up arrow and a number below it) if you would like to see this feature!
  19. I have a symbol that we use to identify specific locations and we need to display the latitude and longitude coordinates of each location. We have been using a Stake as a callout and have it set to display the lat and long coordinates in decimal degrees. I am now trying to show this coordinate information in a worksheet. I do not know what function to use to get the latitude and longitude into the cells. (or it's not possible.) I tried using =ycoordinate, =xcoordinate, but this returns the x/y location in design space and not GIS coordinates. Since we set our files to be georeferenced and use an Adjusted Origin, the location will not be the distance from 0, 0. The function needs to understand the latitude and longitude coordinates. Do you know what function I need to use? Thanks! Anna (attachment is a screenshot of a worksheet I was messing around with to try to get this to work. It could have separate columns for latitude and longitude, or one column with both and with a comma between. It is showing the x/y distance from 0,0, not coordinates).
  20. That's what I did. It was sufficient for my needs at the time. See my reply to Tom W.
  21. I did not make this tunnel using a duplicate DTM. I ended up using one DTM, a tunnel structure that goes in and back out of it on the other side, and a polygon inside the tunnel on this side (from a tip on the forum) to fake the look of a tunnel opening. (final product not shown).
  22. This makes sense. I've done this on a project where we needed to track trees removed (because they died) and replacement trees. Thanks for reminding me of that. I can basically reuse what I made for that.
  23. Markdd, How do you get the custom color palette file saved in that location? How do you update it when a change is made after it has been saved there? Anna
  24. I have made a custom color palette for the company. I would like to share it with the others in my office. Additionally, I work remotely and we share files through Microsoft OneDrive. How do I get the company custom color palette to them? I used the Help Menu and it states "With the Color Palette Manager, create or import custom color palettes". I am looking at the Color Palette Manager and I do not see a way to import or export a color palette. I've attached a screenshot of what I see in the Color Palette Manager. I also did not find a way to share the custom color palette through the Resource Manager. Thanks! Anna
  25. I created a nice edging using the Hardscape Tool in path configuration mode. I have not figured out how to create a Boundary configuration hardscape that has a border on only select sides. Is this still not possible?
