    Thanks

    I World like to know what settings you have, I followed instructions and I have to redo palette settings every morning. Even when I use just the big screen the palettes loose position.
  2. I found a way around it, when applying tag directly with data tool it has a problem because of the size of the label itself relative to the window, if I put the label next to the window and then drag the leader over there is no problem. However, it doesn't make sense why windows which are outside of the section cut be an active choice in that section.
  3. I am trying to tag windows in elevation and for some reason tag tool highlights windows on the back elevations, they are bigger. I tried elevation and limited section both the same. Is there a way to toggle overlapping items?

    data tag links

    I made more tests and I can't find what is the reason for some objects being "invisible" to data tag. I sent it to the tech support.

    data tag links

    I am using single object mode and this particular tag doesn't see the record of invisible object, if I make the object visible in the view port the tag recognizes it and attaches itself, when I go back and turn it invisible the data tag still is attached to the object.

    here is the test tag, it seems to have lost the ability to tag the invisible objects. It worked before and other tags work regardless whether object is visible or not.TAG test.vwx

    data tag links

    I have different data tags attached to different objects some visible some invisible. I has been working faultlessly, then suddenly linking to invisible objects stopped working, the links work when connected to visible and then turned invisible objects and maintain data feed. Other tags still work - are linking to invisible objects. I was searching through settings but cannot find what governs this.
  8. maybe something doubles the count, can you "control" click on line one and "sect item" and then repeat for line 2, is it coming up with the same object/title block?
  9. I keep 1. backup of every major issue/revision. 2. current file on VW auto save. 3. time machine which I found the most useful. once project is signed off i remove #1 while keeping pdf of it. the only time I needed to go back was always time machine, I would say in the last 10 years. Though I might be lucky only twice I had a corrupt file I had to replace.

    data tag

    I got my data tags mostly under control. there are two things I could not find online help with: 1. What exactly is a multiple attachment points, what does it serve and how do you invoke it? 2. Is it possible to harvest twi different types of data, Bayonne line is a #area# and another is #Window#.#ClearArea#. From what I experimented with it all has come from one source, so what I am looking for is a tag that responds to A or B and not A and B.
  12. yes, depending where is the data coming from, the issue here is that if you use static text the flipping will occur, I managed using record formats to add prefix in the formula - data tag layout (unstyled), edit dynamic text/tag field, pick the record formula than add in front of it what would be otherwise in static text. Once that is done then tag works with horizontal auto positioning.
  13. Data tag is not accessing all available stair object parameters. It would be great to have stair data displayed at he right size in different scale viewports (just like window and door tags). It is strange though that for instance in simple stair I can get R&T size and fl to fl, not the number of risers though, in new stair tool only fl to fl and a lot of other parameters which I doubt anyone uses. Seems like an unfinished project with stair tool (again).
