    Workspace Woes

    Yes, i have learned to have a backup copy of my workspace. That solves the issue of an edit operation going awry. It doesn't solve the problem of trying to open a workspace for edit and VW seizing up. I don't actually use the Edit Current Workspace but rather go through Tools/Workspace etc. as you suggested.
  2. This happens regularly, probably once a week. Want to edit my workspace so click on Edit Current Workspace. VW stops working. The cursor is still there but I can't select anything. Also the Workspace dialog doesn't come up. I have to restart VW to get everything working again. When I do get the workspace dialog and do an edit, when I select OK to accept my changes, VW will crash about 10% of the time. This also involves losing my workspace. I'm getting very nervous when I want to edit the workspace. Seems particularly buggy. Anyone else have this experience?
  3. That breaks some item text across columns so I would say that it doesn't work.. My workaround for two columns was to make a copy of the legend and put a blank rectangle over the part of the legends I didn't want to hide. It works but it's not something I think I should have to do.
  4. Tried that. Tried 2,3,4 columns. VW will assign the same number of items to each column or as close as it can. This does not suit the actual content size of the items.
  5. Here's the legend. I can see what it's doing now. There are 11 items in the left column and 10 in the right column. So VW has tried to even out the number of items in each column but has paid no attention as to the content of each item. if you could edit the height of the legend, that would help.
  6. The column width is fine. The height or number of rows in each column is the problem. For example, if my legend has 60 rows with one column, if I click on two columns, the left column will have 20 rows and the right column 40 rows. VW 2021 SP 4 WIN 10
  7. My keynote legend needs to have 2 columns to fit on my sheet. When I pick 2 columns for the legend, the right column is much bigger then the left column. I see no way to control this. Is there a way?
  8. Happened to me too. VW's gremlins at work.
  9. That is great. Works like a charm. Don't know why I didn't see that. I've got a good Data Sheet now so don't really have any need to edit the built in options. Thanks.
  10. My fresh file is a copy of my template file. There are things on most DLs which I would not want to disappear if I deleted the DL. It would be straightforward to deal with imported objects which are ordered by the imported DL.
  11. My project file and my template file have exactly the same DLs. Are you saying I would have to rename the DLs in my project file which contain objects to a new name.
  12. Just remembered the answer to my question. Should have grouped everything before copying. Ungroup after pasting.
  13. Have a new project with not much work in it yet. Just did some major revisions to my template so wanted to copy/paste my new project into my new template. All the objects are assigned to the current class and layer settings after the paste. Is there a way to keep the class/layer settings from the original file? I am not seeing that the paste command has any options. Maybe I'm going about this in the wrong way.
  14. So now I'm looking at the Data Manager and have created my own Data Sheet which presents the data I'm interested in in a useful format (grammar?). I'm using the User Fields for some information. These are text fields. Is there a possibility some of these can be a pop-up field? Or is there some other method which can have a pop-up field in the Data Sheet?
