  1. Thanks for your reply @Pat Stanford. I wrote an entry in the Enscape forum but got no replies. Anyhow, I managed to find a solution to the issue I'm having. I explain how to solve my issue below if it's of any use to other users: Currently there seems to be a bug when having Enscape controls installed in a Smart Options Display menu (SOD). If you open Vectorworks for the first time and then via your buttons in your SOD click on any Enscape button, the button will activate but only once. Next time you try clicking on any button of Enscape, it's respective interface won't open. Even if you try opening by clicking via the default place that Enscape installs its buttons. The way I found out to solve this issue and be able to continue working with buttons accessed through the SOD or the default place Enscape installs its buttons is to: 1. Open Vectorworks 2. After Vectorworks opens, click any of the Enscape buttons via the default place Enscape installs its buttons and then close the opened window. 3. After step 2, you can open your Enscape interface windows via your SOD buttons and you will be able to continue opening them for all of the remaining Vectorworks session. Do it the other way round... via first clicking buttons of Enscape via the SOD and you will encounter the bug I explained before. Hope this helps anybody who might be having this issue and I hope Vectorworks and Enscape solve this bug soon! ------- note: The default place Enscape installs its buttons is at least in Spanish (the version of VW I currently use) is called Grupos de Herramientas, I guess in English it's called something like Group of Tools or something similar.
  2. I'm having trouble with Enscape buttons displaying the windows they're supposed to open after clicking on them. For example, if I click on the materials or Enscape object library button, nothing happens. This also many times happens via the original tools panel... I think this error started happening after I created a custom toolset that displays my Enscape tools and some other tools via the smart options display. I leave a screenshot so it's easier to understand. Has anyone else have this kind of issue? Has anybody else placed Enscape tools in the smart options display?
  3. I drop this also just in case someone might be interested: https://www.vectorworks.net/support/quality-tested-hardware/faq https://www.vectorworks.net/support/quality-tested-hardware
  4. I'm interested in buying a Lenovo Thinkstation P620 (https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/think-workstations/thinkstation-p-series-towers/ThinkStation-P620/p/33TS3TPP620) Form what I can see on ISV certifications (https://www.thinkworkstations.com/isv-certifications/) is that the card I'm interested in (Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000) is supported.
  5. But it seems that Twinmotion Direct Link will really happen at some point. Listen to Dr. Biplab Sarkar speaking about it in his 2020 Design Summit presentation (min 13:45). Also the fact that Redshift renderer, recently acquired by Maxon is coming to Vectorworks is very exciting. Listen to Dr. Biplab Sarkar at min 13:30. Also check out this article that briefly mentions it: https://gfxspeak.com/2020/05/07/maxon-actually-several/ I'm also very much thinking of saying goodbye to Apple and making the move to Windows. Hardware is just much less expensive and the ability to be able to work with Nvidia RTX graphics cards and AMD's Thread Ripper CPUs just leaves Apple hardware performance very far behind. Just go to Puget Systems and try configuring your custom PC, by paying much less you get much greater performance. I'll wait until the June 22 Developers conference and hopefully a new iMac or iMac Pro comes out and that real time raytracing is in some way brought to the Mac. But neither of that is likely to happen and that's when I shall definitely wave goodbye to Apple. I hoped that today some new graphic cards where to be announced on GTC 2020 but sadly that did not occur but Nvidia's Omniverse development is amazing.
  6. Totally agree, I just requested the live link feature.
  7. This is incredible. I'm learning Unreal Engine at the moment and knowing that these new technologies will come soon in the future keeps me very motivated.
  8. Many thanks for you reply @Pat Stanford. I can find other ways to solve the issue I'm having. Actually it's not really a problem, I just thought there was a quick and easy way. There is absolutely no need for anyone to help me and spend so much time creating the script!
  9. Many thanks for your answer. Now I can stop trying.
  10. I'd like the count values of a database to be shown in a text field. For example, I'd like a text field to show the cell value of row 2.7 and column D from the database.
  11. @Pat Stanford how can one read a value from a database and get that value into a Text field?
  12. Many many thanks @Pat Stanford it works great.
  13. Hi, Establishing criteria for databases is easy: Database header cell: =CompAreaByClass('Class-1') using the previous function and establishing criteria I manage to show results only form a particular layer. What I can't do is the following, I want in a normal worksheet cell to get the area of my components but specify from which layer. I know I have to use this function: Spreadsheet cell: =CompAreaByClass(t=wall,'Class-1') What do I need to add to the function above to specify the search in a particular layer? Thanks in advance, Martín
  14. @markdd@Amorphous - Julian@Pat Stanford@mgries My apologies for replying so late! I've had a busy week.
