  1. Hi All, Why the definition of plant symbol cant be edited suddenly??? what setting i changed??? When I duplicate a plant symbol, I cant change any content in definition dialog tag, such as ID, Latin name, common name .... etc. I click 'OK' after I edit, nothing happened, I have to click 'cancel' to close definition dialog tag. --- it still worked very well all the time before. Anyone can help??? Thanks! _________________________________________________________________________ VW 2016 LANDMARK. Windows
  2. Thanks Alan, It is exactly the problem frustrated me. the presentation you uploaded solve the issue, but the line weight in VW is really hard to control... thanks again.
  3. Hi all, Anyone knows how to control the line weight to be shown EXACTLY as we set up on screen. I already set the line 3mm width that is displayed ridiculous wide on screen, but when i issue it to pdf, it looks wider but not as I expected. it always looks thinner... thanks ______________________________________________________ VW 2016 SP4 MAC.
  4. Really looking forward to new version. the fascinating feature of VW is 'one-stop' design tool, which is the most attractive function to me. Although, some basic functions still need to be fixed---personal preference. For example, Control XREF files class visibility from viewport, or issue grey PDF files, or Text Finding(the best one still is CAD-again, personal opinion) and basic adjustment for images colour,stature...(PS function)-now in order to make my plan better, I have to use 5-10 same images but different statures/color. I mean, all these functions would change VW a lot, but they are powerful functions to my daily work, making my life really easy. Really hope VW can inherit these advantages from other programs, and also develop the feature itself. Thanks
  5. Hi all, Here is a problem i found recently. after i create some landscape area objects, i cant change them conveniently, for example, I put them on one class named Mass planting and labels on the other class eg: softlabel. But, when i change the landscape area path, the label change its class to massplanting class automatically, which is not i wanted,i hope it could stay in label class. Second issue: once the landscape area created, i cant flip its line type(it is a custom linetype), it will disappeared. line type is OK in polyline, which i can flip freely. anyone met this issue before?? Thanks!! ________________________ VW 2015, Mac
  6. can fix this by exporting to image files, but you need to drag all images back to pdf again in the end. I just want to explore some better ideas... thanks anyway
  7. Hi Jim when i export to image files,other problem shows up: the image i use as "hatch" show white edge frame... see attched please
  8. Hi all, I use png files in VW, such as tree symbol, but when i export to pdf files, there always show sharp white edge around images... anyone knows how to fix this issue??? see attached screen shot thanks a lot
  9. Hi, anyone knows how to print color hatch to gray color??? one way i can set view port to black white. is there other way i can control color hatch to print gray color?? thanks __________________________________ Vectorworks 2016 Mac
  10. Thanks Ben, It does work for everything but not for the one I wanted!!!!! Sad… don’t know why. Still appreciate your help.
  11. Hi all, Anyone could please help me resetting the prompt ask dialog??? At the beginning, there was a ‘asking box’ jumped out until I tick ‘always’, but I want to change my decision. I want to keep the attributes when I change the class. so how could I reactive this ???? btw: creating a new file seems could fix this problem, but I can’t. It is a master template, so I am stucked with this file. Thanks _____________________________ VECTORWORKS 2015 MAC
  12. Hi all, Anyone knows why the Reference Source when creating new viewport is not available?---but when i create a new file,everything works well.Only some files(eg: this is CAD converted file) randomly cant use viewport reference source function. Anyone can help?? thanks! see the screen please. ____________________________________________________ Vectorwork2014 PC
  13. Hi rowbear97, thanks for reply. see attached screen shots pls. hope they are clear to show the problem. hardscape objects can be controlled very well.
  14. Hi Ben, I dont know how to file a bug report. doesn't matter, you guys will do it anyway. Thanks again.
  15. Hi Ben, Thanks for your help. I think it is a problem of VW and you are right the outline does move away(FLOATING to random direction). I was not sure what were them, thought they are graphic card issue, as i can't select those floating outlines. But if you can see them also, I reckon it is a VW issue... BUG. Here is my trick, I happened found yesterday, if you change anyone of point to arc polyline(you can still make them looks like straight line though), then problem solved!! give it a try, it works for me at least. Hope this "trick" could help everyone... not perfect solution. By the way, here is another problem,if you are interesting, but i have not found any solution. please see the link below: https://techboard.vectorworks.net/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=223521#Post223521 Basically, the color of landscape area objects can not be controlled though view port class setting.
  16. Hi,Benson Here is what i did: 1.set up two custom line types: first is 2mm line segment, second is 200mm line segment, same shape.(my linetype is geometry,page base-I draw them inside the linetype editor,see attached"2mm,200mm") 2.assign 200mm linetypes to first row of rectangles;2mm to second row. (See attachment please.) 3.gave them a hatch(see column 2). Everything works perfectly so far. you can see the linetypes show very clear, but they are just shapes with hatch,NOT hardscape objects. 4.I change column 2 to hardscape object. NOW you can see the problem. the outline disappeared...only when i apply a hatch to the hardscape object, the outline miss out. you can see column 4-hardscape object without hatch, the linetype works very well, like shapes in column 1. Here is what I found: Only when i apply hatch to the hardscape objects, the outline disappeared, even in the design layer screen-I cant see them after I gave them a hatch. So I think it is not the scale issue, because when i change hardscape object hatch to "none" the line types work perfectly. my conlusion is: when i change the shapes to hardscape object, i cant use hatch+custom lines at the same time. Not sure what is going on really, I blame the VW for now. But still frustrated...

  18. Hi, Benson Shaw, thanks for help firstly. See attached please. it shows my custom line setup, the linetype length is 200mm. It still doesn't work, except when i set OIP linetype scale 0.001---it doesnt make sense though,as it will show as solid line. Do you suggest i set up line length maybe 2000mm???
  19. The costumer lines work perfect as shapes in classes. However, when I create Hardscape objects with custom linetypes,the outlines miss out.I can see them when zoom in/out,that means, they are there,but just cant show up/print out correctly, weird... although solid line works perfectly in any ways only lines with break(eg:dash,dash-dot lines) miss out... Any help please? _____________________________________________________ WIN 7.0 VW2014 SP1 Landmark
  20. J. Wallace, thanks A lot. That does work, but I cant print B/W only, I still need to print other colors as well. _____________________________________________________ WIN 7.0 VW2014 SP1 Landmark
  21. like i sai. the landscape area object line color stay as color as the class setting, i can't change them to B/W by viewport setting. Any give me a tip?? VW2014 Wins. thanks !
  22. AEB thanks for reply. I am quite sure they are all by class, but other drawings objects on the class are under control(linetype, attribute...) but only "landscape area objects" linetype COLOUR stay as class preset, like FOREVER!!!
