  1. JuanP, Thanks for your reply. I was excited to take the Hidden Treasures webinar only to find out I was 3 hours too late and now have to wait a month. Your efforts are appreciated. I have subscribed.
  2. Not sure why Vectorworks hasn't sent out an email telling us that they have done this. Not much use if they don't tell us this is available. Thanks to them anyway.
  3. In Archicad, when I place a door or window, a tag is drawn automatically giving the window size. in Vectorworks, I see that I have the option to draw a number and alter the shape of the line around the number. While I want the number later on for construction documents, initially I only want to display the unit size. I know I can do this with a data tag but is there any way to alter the built in tag to display not the unit number by the unit size? The goal is to have the size placed with the unit rather than placing a data tag after. All these extra steps add up.
  4. I come from Archicad and Revit where I am allowed to designate multiple layers as a core element. Two examples would be an 1) ICF where I have three layers (insulation, concrete, insulation) but want the whole assembly to be a core 2) An exterior frame wall where I want to include the exterior sheathing as well as the stud as the core element. VW only allows you to pick one layer as a core. With regard to the stud wall, I could just dimension to the studs and that would be okay (although not common practice around here) but the ICF is a different problem. I want the layers to show in a section but need to dimension to the exterior face of the ICF as well as any wall framing which may be on that layer. Is there a way to handle this in not too a complicated manner?
  5. Seems like the SmartPaste website is "Under Construction". Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.
  6. I've looked at a lot of VW videos lately. I think I saw one where you had an object and could then generate a sheet view of every side in one go. Does this sound familiar to anyone? It might of been an Archicad video.
  7. Actually had one more test - Selected all 8 sheets in order (1 to 8 using ctrl-click. Publishing order comes in 8 to 1.
  8. I have 8 sheets which I can select. Test 1 - Selected the sheets 1 to 8, clicking on the first sheet and the rest by shift-click. Publishing order comes in 8 to 1. Test 2 - Selected sheets 8 to 1, clicking on the last sheet and the rest by shift-click. Publishing order comes in 8 to 1. Test 3 - Selected all 8 sheets in a random order using ctr-click. Publishing order comes in 8 to 1. Seems like a bug to me. TKA's solution is an easy fix but the publishing order should come in correctly.
  9. That works as it should. I don't know of any other program I use that does this behavior. I am slowly discovering VW's various idiosyncrasies. Glad the fix is easy. Thanks.
  10. Have published my first project. Everything is great but the order of the pages in the pdf is reversed. Went back to look at my settings and noticed that if I select all the pages to publish and use the arrow to send them to the publish set, the order of the sheets is reversed in the publish set. Seems wrong to me. Of course I could select the sheets one by one but this seems to be incredibly inefficient. A bug or am I doing something wrong?
  11. Pat, Thanks for your thorough explanation. I had the feeling that Data tags would be involved here. Sucess.
  12. Here is an image of a window tag I used In Revit. Both the number and size were contained in the same tag. In Archicad, I could get the size automatically but had to add the number manually. I see in Vectorworks, I can get the number automatically but haven't figured out how to get the size either manually or automatically. Any good ideas out there?
  13. I am in the process of migrating from Archicad but posts like this make me want to run away screaming!
