  1. atrribute = "color" attribute value = "red" for example: i can store forergound color, background color, font and size to be piced up and transferred, but I cant store foreground= red, background = green font=arial, size=12 bu you are right if eyedropper could do this this would be the right tool....but the settings should be editable
  2. eyedropper is no solution, it can only store the settings which of the attributes to be transfered, but not the attribute values.
  3. Hi grant_PD, thanks for reply no, the "sheet layer types" stay the same, and they are already in my template, but the settiings of the viewports in these sheet layers change from project to project. I wonder how others work with this problem, it must be the same when constructing a big building, is there alwas a sheet layer for plumbers, for carpenters, for bricklayers, for pavers, for painters... this must be hundreds of sheets on a big building site...
  4. Maybe I'm completely wrong, but I'm looking for a way to create something like "saved views for sheetlayer viewports" : In general, my sheet layers are for example top view sheet, front view sheet, side view sheet, one or two isometric sheets plus some detail sheets. Let's call these "sheetlayer types". Now the different crew on the building site needs different layers and classes in these sheets, for example the light crew needs fixture and truss layer, the scaffolding crew needs the steelwork layer, the rigging crew needs the truss layer and the layer of the venue roof, the stage crew needs the layaer with soft goods, and so on. So the problem is that for example a number of 5 "sheetlayer types" and 8 construction crews will lead to 40 sheet layers, all of the same shape only "filled" with different layer and class settings. So, maybe I simply can't find it, but is there a way to store only the 5 "sheetlayer types" plus 8 "views" and combine them as needed for printing ? Can a script do that ? Whats more, any idea how to update the titleblock accordingly ?
  5. - right Click - select edit - tab to Name - Edit - close That's a typical Vectorworks-Worklfow... Why can't this be a simple click like in any (windows-)filebrowser, and renaming ? This would save thousands of seconds of lifetime that could be use for more enjoyable things .....
  6. just checked it, I can't even change the solid fill, even if I restart Vectorworks. Another bug with the clip cube is that the shortcut does something else than the menue command, never got an answer to this tread.
  7. no one knows... ? Should be a simple yes or no ...
  8. is there a Viewer 2018 available ? Or do I have to convert my files to 2017 ?
  9. I tested all this a lot. As final conclusion I gave up using any images in reports. This function is buggy, slow and not worth spoiling so much time to get it running.
  10. Hi Mark, I got this answer from Pat when I postet this topic some time ago: So the class selection for thumbnail pictures in reports is not only poor in VW 2018, it also seems to have a bug....
  11. The main problem with this method is that nudging steps are counted as operations, so nudging objects may result to several backups in a short time depending on the backup settig.
  12. Just tried to open a webview index.html file on an older I-Pad, which failed (of course...) I thought I could use this for smaller projects on the building site without printing paper sheets. Anyone here who has experience with that ? Any recommended hardware / operating system / software ? As far as I can see Nomad does not work offline on a tablet device without login into the VW cloud...or am I missing something ?
  13. the clip cube can be positionend around selected objects. - select several objects - select View/Clip Cube However, this does not work when using the shortcut ( Ctrl+Shift+ALT+Q), VW then resumes the last Clip Cube position.... Bug or feature ? (usually I expect a shortcut to do exactly what the menue does...)
  14. Hi Pat, thanks much for your help, and don't feel stressed ... All I wanted to know if I had overseen some feature or workaround for the pagenumbers. So now it's clear: It's not possible without external software.
  15. Hi Pat, uups, sorry, diddn't update my old signature. I'm on VW 2018 ... I think title blocks are used for sheet layers only, not for reports ?
