    Custom ID tags for windows and doors

    the tags still work even after you turn off the class of the original objects.

    the beauty of the data tag is that the tag is connected to the object on the design layer, so when you update the design layer, the tag updates automatically.

    Samuel, I use the data tags in viewports to avoid the need to scale them. they work great for that.

    to use a custom profile, create 2D symbol with the correct shape.

    Layer scale without moving drawing position

    It looks to me as though you are using design layers for printing. This means that you have one design layer for your drawn information and one design layer and one design layer for your title block. When you scale the drawing layer, you're not scaling the title block layer. this is not an effective way to use Vectorworks. It is better to use design layers for drawing, and sheet layers for the printing (and title blocks).

    labels on the drawing, or in a report?

    Wall insertion point control?

    Use the Core Component Control line mode.

    Wall insertion point control?

    I don't think this has anything to do with stories. I think you can use the modes on the tool bar to sort that out:

    Dash line show on the same place

    it would be nice if it was quicker. If I was an intermediate user, I might achieve this by creating a small script using the Tools > Custom Tool/Attribute command.

    Custom ID tags for windows and doors

    Hi christiaan, I have started to add my tags to the annotation part of the viewport. I find that it can read all the information that I want and it is where I want for that viewport. it doesn't matter that it is not on the same layer as the door, any updates to the door automatically go to the Data Tag.

    Dash line show on the same place

    I tend to connect the line style to a class. Then, when I assign the Object the correct class, it shows the correct line style. I find this a productive way to work.

    "unfold" roof to obtain actual roof size and run

    you can use a worksheet to report the areas. there is a function that will calculate the areas of the roof along the slope. If you add a name to each roof face, you can sort the worksheet to give you the data for each roof face.
