    Hoist Symbols in worksheet flipped

    I managed to find a way to "cheat" it. As it stands, all hoist symbols on the drawing have their dimension display automatically orientated to be pointing towards the hoist origin. I added a new hoist origin in the bottom right hand corner, refreshed the hoists so they all have the dimension display orientated the same, refreshed the worksheet, deleted the new hoist origin and then refreshed the hoists so they were showing the correct x,y dimensions again. Simple Well at least the display in the worksheet is aligned and it pleases my OCD, until I find a better solution.

    Hoist Symbols in worksheet flipped

    Thanks Pat, I will add this to the wishlist forum. The main problem with the hoist symbols is that the orientation of the dimension display is dependent on if it is placed to the left or right of the center line, whilst this makes sense on our drawing I don't understand how the worksheets choose what symbol to reference, it must be referencing some from the minus side and others from the plus side. I'm not sure if it looks at the first instance of the symbol placed in the drawing or maybe from the top down. I will have to experiment next time I get some down time. Ben

    Will it jeopardize the chances of this issue resurfacing if I save and import my workspace settings? The thought of re configuring all my layout/settings is very daunting! Ben

    Hoist Symbols in worksheet flipped

    We use worksheets to produce our key for hoist symbols. When we use the image function to get the 2D symbol some symbols have the dimension display flipped and others don't, this means when we turn off the label class the symbols are not aligned correctly. I have attached some screen shots to illustrate. Thanks Ben

    Web View Low res images!

    I am trying to get a model uploaded to web view to show a client. Problem is that the textures are showing up very low res, where is the setting to adjust this? I have set GL render to Very High and Web view quality to Very High Any suggestions Thanks Ben

    Turning Off Classes in Worksheet Images

    Did this ever get fixed or did any one find a workaround? We use this function for our hoist key (Spotlight) and it is becoming somewhat of a pain! Our arrows are appearing huge and there is no way of turning the labels off. B

    Worksheet loosing row height

    I am using a worksheet function to automatically display symbols in the key. I set the row height to 16 points and my image is set to 15 points, if extra symbols are added to the drawing upon re-calculating the worksheet the new rows are defaulting to auto fit! is there an overall option somewhere that I am overlooking or is this a bug? Thanks
  10. I am trying to add some info together in a cell of a worksheet and I want it to appear as such " LED Wall @ 12' x 32' " I can do the last apostrophe by using the trailing function in the cell dialog but when I try putting the apostrophe as the foot symbol actually in the header it is obviously not letting me as that is the syntax to display a character. how can I get around this? This is what I have to make it work but I want to add the apostrophe's in to this! =CONCAT('LED Wall @ ', ('VS4-LED'.'ArrayWdth'), ' x ', ('VS4-LED'.'ArrayHght')) Thanks B

    Excluding objects from Worksheets not working!

    @michaelk I Know, thats what I used for the Lighting Devices but alas there is no such functionality for Truss, Soft Goods, Video elements etc.

    OK So I took @michaelk's idea of changing the '|' to '&' but instead i told it to search for the "Hide from Inventory' record to not be present instead of the actual field value. That worked Only problem now is if someone unchecked the "HIDDEN" field value instead of removing the record all together it won't work At least it will get me off to a start. It is a shame you can't add user fields to built in objects, I added a Show In Inventory checkbox to the Lighting Device Objects (Spotlight) and that works like a charm.

    Changing the "|" to "&" didn't help! The problem may be that I am only attaching the "Hide From Inventory" Record to things I want to hide, so if it is set to only show HIDDEN as FALSE it may be confusing it!!

    The header is =DATABASE((INOBJECT & INSYMBOL & (R IN ['VS4-LED']) & (('VS4-LED'.'ConfRef'='Overall Dimensions and Spacing') | ('Hide From Inventory'.'Hidden'=FALSE)) & (L<>'*UNUSED*')))

    @Pat StanfordI still have had no luck, I thought it might have something to do with the “or” “and” syntax. I tried editing it manually but it kept defaulting to the criteria builder settings, I will try clearing out the builder and just doing it manually in the header.
