  1. Hello, quick question here,

    Is there a way to customize the spacing for issue and revision entries which the sheet border creates. I have created a custom titleblock (which I use with the sheetborder) with specific row widths for issue and revision entries. Then I punch in ":iNo" ":iNote" ":iDate" at the spaces they belong but when it comes to display they start to get out of their row widths and look misaligned. Is there a way to get around this? I tried to change the texts' spacing value but no avail...

  2. Hello, I'm kind of reposting this here from my original post to grab a bit more attention.

    What I'm trying to achieve is to regualate multiple users' "Vectorworks Preferences" and I was wondering if this tool has something to do with it? If there is another work around to this, please let me know... any help is appreciated as always. Thanks

  3. Alright this is a bit nit-picking at this point probably but, in the old 2014 VW I was somehow able to tab through fields within the OIP. Meaning I was able to to tab between "record format" "record field defaults" and "record info" sections easily. This came in handy especially when entering information to different record fields for the same symbol(s). Feel like I'm missing something but don't know what... any help is appreciated.

  4. Is there a way to attach or set the record field of a symbol to a dimension string embedded in it? I can't find the time to work on a script right now, but if there is a relevant code, I can work with that too.

    I dug around a little bit but couldn't find a post similar to this, if you can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate that as well, thanks in advance.

  5. Hello all,

    I was wondering if there was a way to count strings in a worksheet? The values are not in under a database row, they are just punched in stings to cells. I've tried nesting them in "INT" or "Value" functions and using them with "COUNT" or "SUM" functions but to be honest a bit frustrated that I can't even figure out this. What would you suggest?

    EDIT: my strings are basically dates in this format; mm/dd/yy

  6. Ok Jim will do. The issue is in this file, if you copy the blue revision clouds and try to change them they disappear but the orange clouds work fine because I created them new and also in the 2015 update, the others were created in 2014. And the file manager doesn't accept .zip files so I got you the .ifc format if that works...

  7. Hi all,

    I don't know if anybody noticed this before with VW_2015 but the revision cloud tool seems to disappear if you try to change its' color, its' shape by pulling on of the handle points or anything really. The only way to create one seems to just create a new one, you can't edit a copy of a revision cloud. Anybody running into the same problem? I couldn't find a related thread, but if there is, I would appreciate if you can point me in that direction.

  8. We as a company switched to 2015 recently as well. Couple of people are complaining about this a well, rarely including me, I'll make sure to send in a report next time it does this. We usually use it locally but with C/G license type, so we borrow from server.


    Although I don't think it has to do with SPs. I'm on SP2 and a colleague of mine is on SP1, hers actually crash more, probably due to computer capabilities such as RAM and what not but the program overall feels leaner.
