  1. thanks, that works, I thought I did tried that but must have done something wrong and got confused by the "luck"
  2. I stumbled upon one thing I cannot resolve: I have floor area calculations in a large worksheet everything is working when I add area calculations, when I need to subtract for some reason its not working, I tried other variations too with the same result: =CRITERIAAREA((L='A101-1ST FLOOR') & (C='Z-area-FAR-X - C')+(C='Z-area-FAR-X - R')) - this works =CRITERIAAREA((L='A101-1ST FLOOR') & (C='Z-area-FAR-X - C')-(C='Z-area-FAR-X - R')) - this doesn't
  3. so that was 5 years ago, any progress with using tiles in renderworks textures?
  4. it doesn't work for me even in the sections set in design layer, the 2 items lost their link and I cannot re establish them in existing view port, I cut a new one and copy/pasted annotations and re established links, the problem is that on Monday links will be gone.
  5. yes, I made a test file, one thing I noticed that if I cut in model space it works fine, only when I cut in viewport it causes records to misbehave TEST.vwx
  6. Out of the blue my furniture tag selectively stopped working, I have been using it without a problem for a long time, now I annotated viewports with tags, after some changes wanted to add tags and nothing works, existing tags display data. Then it started working again but only in some viewports, I tested the same object in different viewports and sometimes it works sometimes not, cant figure out what is the setting that cause this.
  7. out of the blue my tags selectively stopped working, I have been using them without a problem for a long time, now I annotated viewport with tags, after some changes wanted to add tags and nothing works, existing tags display data but are not linked anymore. I made a duplicate viewport in the same file and tags work on the same objets, then again all links lost after some work, could not retrace steps. Tags in deign layer link properly, so viewports cause problems.
  8. Cant figure out what is the reason that some files render objects correctly and some not, the same set of objects with the same lighting. In this case the file was simple scope paste took care of the problem.
  9. can you post specs for the iMac Pro you have been using,
  10. I have a file (primary one) that works flawlessly, I created a spin off (save as) for the purpose of filing with the local dept of Buildings, all fine. One day I opened the spin off file (all settings are the same) and suddenly some elevations viewports are like X-Rays showing everything as if not opaque. To be exact north south south are showing correct and east & west are X- Rayed.
  11. so in my set up I still have the data formula which reads "SK 1" but added prefix "P" automatically for all plumbing fixtures (in my case).
  12. yes, this is exactly the set up I have. Instead of having SS as text in the tag layout you have to put it in front of the formula.
  13. all fillets are different, but one thing I noticed in my case that changing order of filleting allowed to complete (overcome locked fillets) conditions. I my case it was doing the simplest filleting at the very end.

    Naming Lights

    thanks, don't know what happened with screen shots but the above is what I was referring to, so it is a bug, not a big deal but ...

    Naming Lights

    Not sure if this is supposed work like this but it kind of doesn't make sense. When naming light, the name shows in visualization palette but when trying to edit the name, it can be highlighted but cannot be edited in properties and when going into Edit Light the name disappears and has to be retyped from scratch. sequence: 1 light crated and highlighted but doesnt change name, 2 Open properties, name flight not displayed, 3 Name typed 4 name visible in visitation palette after closing properties 5 reopening properties to edit name, name not visible, instead of changing number 1 to 2, I have retype the whole name.

  16. I was trying to make it work too, there are too many questions, it would be great to have some guidance.

    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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.

    data tag links

    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.
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
