  1. Check out the alert at the bottom of the image you posted. "A component of this wall is using a story bound that does not exist". If the wall is styled, edit the components of the style. If it's not styled you can edit the components right from the OIP. Check each component to see what the bounds are. If that makes zero sense, post a file with the wall in it. 🙂
  2. The stairs are using the texture Composite Decking Azek Weathered Teak RT. That texture has the hatch Board 200mm HF imbedded in it. The lines you are seeing in hidden line view are that hatch. You can either edit the renderworks texture and remove the imbedded hatch or just delete the hatch from the resource manager and that will get rid of those lines in hidden line view.
  3. But not always. I'm able to get it to fail when pasting it into a new drawing at the origin. Sometimes.
  4. I tried all those too. Have you tried opening a blank file drawing a curved wall, then pasting in the "bad" wall? That worked for me.
  5. I'm seeing the same thing. I could have sworn that wildcards on layer names used to work. I wonder if there is a way to use the Left function or a Substring function in the database formula to do what you want. @PatStanford?
  6. It's probably not it, but the only difference I can see under the hood in a wall that works and a wall that doesn't is an undocumented real number setting. 606. But I can't find a listing for 606 in the Object Selectors Appendix. Must be a SDK thing? SetObjectVariableReal(LNewObj,606,141841.394834864971926);
  7. Very strange. I'm seeing the same issue you see. More data: Take your misbehaving wall and copy it into a blank file. Same problem. Draw a new curved wall. Same problem. Start a new file. Draw a curved wall. All good. Copy misbehaving wall into this file. All good. Wall is fixed. Copy same wall - now working - back to your file. Problem returns. I suspected for a while that it could be a distance from origin problem. But now I think not.
  8. No. I still have the Attach Record in the contextual menu when right clicking on symbols, including red symbols.
  9. I don't think so. I know I've had 4 versions w/ 2 licenses running at the same time. I just wish you could copy and paste from one version to another.
  10. Yes you can. Make a record format with a field for each piece of data you want to include. In the Resource Manager attach that record to the symbol. In the symbol put in dummy text then Tools>Records>Link Text to Record and pick the record and field for that text. I'll attach an example. And a link to Sam Jones' tool where he has already figured this out 🙂 http://www.autoplotvw.com Link Text To Record.vwx
  11. It is possible. But I’ve never tried using only wildcards. Since you don’t care what the device name is, can you remove it from the criteria? Does that make it work? Or use just one asterisk for the device name wildcard
  12. @KWiley I've been using 2024 for what seems like 17 hours a day for a couple months with no lags or slowdowns. What computer are you using? What OS? If you would like to post a slow file here or send it in a PM Pat or I could test it for you to see if there is something in the file that's causing problems.
