  1. Thanks for the update @JimW Heres hoping you dont need to jump all the way to a new render engine.

    Symbol Count Table

    Heya Team, We have just purchased a new modular screen frame system and I have made a simple 2D build template to allow us to piece together individual sections to create custom projection screen sizes. Id like to create a table within the design layer that auto populates to let you know how many of each symbol is currently in the drawing. Something that says Corners =4, T-Pieces = 4 etc. Something that once you've built your masterpiece, tells you how many of each to add to the rental program. Thank you so much for your time!
  4. Heya Team, We have an issue whereby we version a drawing at the end of its filename. When we open the open recent tab, the names are long enough that the version number is lost. We would like to request that when you open the open recent menu either the tab is wide enough and scaled to the longest file name, or that you can hover over a name and it will appear in a callout. Photo attached.

    Resource Manager - Thumbnail Issues (Windows)

    I have a similar issue with symbols when trying to use the Isometric view for the thumbnails. I build the libraries in 2017, but now whenever I edit a symbol and exit, the thumbnail re-draws, but only zooms in on one small section of the actual symbol. See the highlighted symbol is the only one I have edited. If I enter 'edit 3D' on any other symbol and exit, it will re-draw the thumbnail similarly.
  6. We have 5 VW users in a room, we all suffer from the all black or all white screens even post SP3. We all find that quitting and restarting is the only way to get it to come back. Very Very Frustrating!

    Multi Texture Walls at Height

    Heya Team, I'm hoping there is an easier solution than my current long winded workaround. I am currently drawing an exhibition space with 12 meter walls. There is multiple colours of wall is it goes, I was hoping for a way to tell a wall to be one renderworks texture from 0mm-2000mm another texture 2000mm-5000mm and one from 5000mm and up. I currently have to duplicate all of the walls and stack them to get this effect. Is there a non Architect answer to doing this? Thanks so much!

    Video Screen Tool Insertion

    Ah, thank you so much for the tip. I believe this is a slightly different mechanic to previous versions, its always just a slight adjustment. I appreciate your time in getting back to me!

    Video Screen Tool Insertion

    Good Afternoon Team, I am having a hard time with the new Video Screen Tool in 2018. We make a few minor adjustments to the tool as far as adding custom projectors and limiting the screen size options to sizes we own. I have an issue whereby when I double click the tool in the tool sets, it immediately places a screen and projector in the drawing at 0,0 It then gives me the dialogue box to select the parameters I want and I can then place that new one. My issue is why would it immediately insert a video screen at the mere selection of the tool, this is a change from 2017 and I fear its not intentional. Has anyone else come across this and is there a way to toggle this? Thank you so much!

    Symbol Thumbnail Rendering Issue

    Hello Andy, Thank you so much for that suggestion. Alas, that doesn't seem to be my issue, I can change the orientation of the thumbnail, right Isometric, Left Isometric etc. and they all seem to revolve around the same small portion of the symbol itself. I will continue to investigate this, as the symbol is not nested, nor does it have excessive classes that could effect this. I'm really at a loss, but I shall continue to play and Ill post any successes I may have. Thanks again.

    Symbol Thumbnail Rendering Issue

    Hey Team! I'm having a new and interesting issue with 2018. I have converted and opened a symbol file from 2017, and each time I edit a symbol in anyway (or just enter 'edit 3D' and exit) it re-renders my symbols thumbnail. Its now not encompassing the whole symbol in its thumbnail. I have attached an example, the screens are very similar, the first symbol I have edited and you can see its zoomed in on the base plate, whereas the others look the way I would expect. Can anyone tell me if I'm just missing something obvious? Thank you so much!

    Sheet Border PDF Export Issue

    Howdy Team, We have had this issue for a few versions and 2018 doesn't seem to have fixed it. Perhaps it is my own settings causing the issue. Take a blank sheet, apply a sheet border, Changing 'Sheet Fit Mode' to either Internal or External Dimensions doesn't seem to matter, This will draw a black line around the edge of your sheet and another further in or not depending on that setting, export to PDF. My issue is that the black line border closest to the edge shows on the top, left and bottom, or just top and left occasionally of the PDF. I know its an oddity, but its been consistent since 2016, just wondering which setting might be able to fix this. Thanks everyone for your help! Test.pdf
