  1. couldn?t find the answer to this problem with the search function... although i?m sure others faced it as well i have a drawing in which a lot of unconnected lines should be combined into one line, even better a closed polygon these are supposed to be a dashed polygon but appear to be separate individual lines that are a distance apart from each other the source file is a pdf drawing that was converted into dwg and then imported, there is no original dwg file available so i can?t fix it there any ideas? seems very basic but i really don?t have a clue :blush:
  2. Thanks for answering, but unfortunately this does not solve the problem. I am aware of the possibility to 'link text to record'. We use this all the time to manually write the title of each sheet on that page (in our title block). My question, however, is if there is any possibility (using Fundamentals - no BIM) to automatically link the sheet number and name (as we write in the organization panel) to such a data record. That way, we would not have to re-write every sheet number and title twice (once in the organization panel, once in the data field of our title block on each sheet). The _SN suffix solution, as proposed, seems not to work in our case. I'm wondering if this is because it is not supported by Fundamentals...
  3. Thanks for your reply. However, it is unclear to me where exactly to write the '_SN' part to make it work. I tried both the Field Name and Default Value fields of the Record Format, but neither seems to work. Does it have anything to do with the fact that I'm using Fundamentals?
  4. Hi everyone, I'm quite sure the answer to this is 'no', but giving it a try anyway: we are using Vectorworks 2012 Fundamentals in the office and wonder if there is any way to place the sheet number and/or name of a certain sheet on that sheet layer (e.g. as a text frame, or as the value for a data record attached to our page-symbol). This way, we would avoid the double work of systematically numbering and naming our sheet layers in the organization panel, and rewriting these numbers and names on our page colophon. Thanks, Dan
