  1. it may be a banal question but is there a way to insert a column in worksheet at the right end as opposed before last col on the right? I know the instructions: To add columns to the right side of the worksheet, click and drag the bottom right corner of the worksheet - it makes no sense, clicking and dragging resizes the worksheet window
  2. you need to select the the sheet (click on it) then the option will became available, you can select all and have same option set up for all or do it individually, I would recommend to select all and set one setting, the most efficient (no raster and, perhaps, reduced image size to 150DPI) and see how it comes out, then fine tune it with different settings.
  3. check under publish settings, options whether you have these sheets set to rasterize, if so uncheck it.
  4. you might run onto more problems as you work, I have ru into unresolved issues with rendering and viewport qualities which I enumerated in a post whole ago, no worries now, but if you run into the same problems let me know, the problems are better visible when on a big screen:
  5. Disregard my comment, I didn't see the elaboration on this subject
  6. Usually the great thing about this set up is that you can reverse change the details by inputting the desired value in the window, great for global adjusting of, for instance, window heights.
  7. Double check values of summarized items, usually when they are different a dash will appear

    Door schedule data

    thanks, now I have a better understanding. Interestingly when choosing other "conditional" values like lights or trim the pull down option menu includes IF but not for transom, that is how I originally arrived at my formula - I think it should be IF by default. Anyway, given this experience I think it would be good for the cell parameters to be accessible in one window like, for instance class attributes, as opposed to in many separate menus, just an idea to reduce number of clicks.

    Door schedule data

    yes, the cell format was wrong, it was leftover from the original door schedule column which was set to boolean. Many thanks. I noticed another thing which may be a bug of sorts, if transom value is set to more than 0 and transom is inactive it still shows the value as if the transom was there as opposed to N/A.

    Door schedule data

    Actually, I am in 2020 Architect (need to change the profile) and I copy pasted If from my worksheet and it still yields asterix, when I input the If formula the record switches from "spring" to "transom" which I believe records whether there is transom and not the spring value.
  11. I am trying to have the transom height show up in the door schedule, I picked "spring" from the pull down menu but its only showing asterix. I tried: =IF(('Door'.'Transom'), 'Door'.'Spring', 'N/A') and it doesn't work.
  12. totally agree this is an issue, including the palette position which is not perfect. I work from a laptop, most of the time I have additional big screen sometimes not, when I switch it creates a total mess of windows and palettes. I wonder if there is something like a project/file associated "workspace" that remembers all of it, and preferably int one or two versions depending upon screen set up.
  13. I wonder if there could be improvements: 1. Have a separate button @ top of spreadsheet to recalculate as opposed to scroll down menu. 2. I understand "one way street" with worksheet, but I wonder if a change to any data base object could trigger recalculate button to go red, even if it doesn't belong to the particular spreadsheet - a reminder of sorts update.
  14. Try "option" empty trash, if it doesn't work, sometimes you need to restart the computer.
  15. I ran into this problem in various places (including layer settings), it seems to be fixed on the Mac side. I used to add space after the the name or number which seemed to trigger change.
  16. in different files on different computers light become un editable as soon as I edit it, the name disappears and popup window doesn't invoke edit window any more. I can't even delete this light????
  17. I have a single object in both elevation and section. 1. It appears that the section is actually cutting the object and changing geometry from smooth to faceted, I tested a different smooth object and it was fine when cut, however, 2. Doing a section cut of the test object resulted in correct first view, I noticed some strange shadow line when zoomed icon the viewport, I changed the line to white, well, the section view is no longer updatable, red line around the viewport doesn't go away and 'update' button is no longer red even though the viewport indicated is out of date. 3. When trying to do another section viewport it resulted in elevation without cut mark. I removed, presumably, a corrupt viewport and made a new section viewport, it works but it is faceted again right next to elevation viewport of the same object. 4. Viewport resolution. In model space, of course, everything looks sharp. In viewport, despite setting the sheet raster to 300 dpi it looks like 72 dpi, of course I can go to 600 or 1200dpi but that is simply unworkable.
  18. I have Architect and the current escalator tool is in the Building Shell toolset, you might check in workspace editor whether it is just not active.
  19. its a bug, VW knows about it and most likely will be fixed in next SP, this has been brought up a while ago, I think it happens only on windows.
  20. click on "name" in publish window - you can control the order of pages there
  21. if you don't have 2018 you can use attached space object.vwx
  22. Something happened with graphic attributes in space tool. It seems impossible to have a label 100% opaque and 2D boundary in less than 100% opacity. This functionality was working in VW2018 but 2019 and 2020 has rearranged info and settings boxes and it is no longer possible. Its kind of indispensable when dong planing and color coding different uses etc.
  23. you are right, it's a bug, I will report it to the tech. I formatted my space tool/object in VW2018, just checked and it works in 2018, then you can reuse the same space object in 2019 or 2020 but when formatting it in settings it reverts to opaque.
  24. yes, highlight the space object, then in the info box click on settings, then navigate to graphic attributes.
