    Alert Dialog and Attribute Popup

    For #1, you can use a valve node before the alert dialog to determine if it shows or not. The only current issue is that nothing past the valve will run if the input is false, even if the network converges somewhere later. for 2, we don't have any OIP controls like that, so I am going to guess no. A workaround would be to modify your own popup controls with possible values, but I don't think we can display color at this time, it would have to be text based.

    Vectorworks Library Disappeared

    Could you check in the Session tab of Vectorworks Preferences and see if the "Enable Vectorworks Libraries" option is checked?

    Ungrouping Marionette's default Groups

    I've received it, I'll try to get around to looking at it this week 🙂 Thank you!

    Marionette and Symbol

    Yes, that's a text field. I'll look into a way to format that automatically, but that's an iffy situation because of conversions.

    I would suggest using a List (Ordered) node. There's no real way to figure out which way a node will accept different wires. (It may be stacking order? or insert order? I'm not even sure myself) Marionette MF Stud_MFarrell.vwx

    And here's your latest request: Marionette MF 2_MFarrell.vwx

    Marionette and Symbol

    Here's a simple example from your original file - I just finished it up as you posted for help on this new one. The trick is including nodes from the Record category in your original script to populate a record attached to the Marionette Object. ReportFromMarionette_MFarrell.vwx

    Ungrouping Marionette's default Groups

    Our debug mode at this time is primarily used to determine what data is flowing through a wire to kind of backtrack where the network went wrong - sort of like assigning breaks in code. It's hard to determine ahead of time what will cause a crash, but we do our best to add error handling to the default content when we come across it - is it possible for you to send me a network that you encounter(ed) a crash in? I'd like to take a look and see what I can do on my end. I'm working now on outlining some Marionette help, so I will be sure to add information on best practices as often as I can.

    You need to take it one step further. Right click on the wrapper node and select "Convert to Object Node" That will create an object based on your script with editable properties in the OIP.

    Can you send me a file either here or privately? I can help you.

    Marionette and Symbol

    Are you familiar with Marionette Objects? They would be your solution. Right click on your network and choose "Wrap Marionette Network" and then right click on the wrapper node and choose "Convert to Object Node" That will give you an editable object on your drawing that will behave like a Plug In Object. You can save that as a Red Symbol in your document. In order to display the parameters you want editable in the Object Info Palette, select those nodes and name them in the upper part of the Object Info Palette. Please let me know if you need any help 🙂

    Marionette Faceted Facade

    Version 1.0.0

    150 downloads

    This object will create 3D polys with random peaks to display a faceted facade. This object requires the installation of Python libraries Numpy and Scipy. If these do not already exist in [User Folder]/Python Externals, you will be prompted with a dialog to install them.

    Slow text edit

    @Jillian Mitchell Unfortunately, VW 2017 is not compatible with Mojave and there will be no updates for it.

    @Dendecko Is it possible for you to share this file? You can send it to me in a private message, if so. We would like to take a look at it internally. Thank you!

    Zoom - Fit to Objects not working

    Workspaces are stored in your user folder as .vww files, which are essentially .xml files; you could probably poke through there to check customization info, though it won't be so user friendly. It's likely possible to write a script that could make it more readable, but I don't have the time right now.

    @Dendecko Have you updated to SP3? Many fixes having to do with hangs are included in that Service Pack.

    Zoom - Fit to Objects not working

    Understandable! No automated repairs, all by guess and check. There's no real way to know which file(s) are causing the issue, to my knowledge. My approach is usually remove one folder at a time and relaunch until I find where the culprit is and then try to diagnose from there.

    Zoom - Fit to Objects not working

    Very possible that it's a corrupt workspace, and I sure do know how not fun it is to recreate those 🙂 I'll dig into the folder you sent me and let you know if I get anywhere, please also update me if you figure it out in the meantime!

    Zoom - Fit to Objects not working

    By chance, if you haven't deleted the old user folder, could you zip it up and send it to me in a private message? I may be able to narrow down where the issue is.

    Zoom - Fit to Objects not working

    Last time I ran into this, it was a corrupt file. Can you send me that file privately?

    Zoom - Fit to Objects not working

    @Markus Barrera-Kolb Could you try renaming your user folder to something like "2019_old" and restarting VW, then try again?

    Could you share the file either here or as a direct message to me?

    Items staying behind when moving grouped Sheet Layer Viewports

    I can't find a report in our tracking, though I may be searching for the wrong keywords. I'll submit a bug now just to make sure it gets covered.

    Is there a way to custom reset plug-ins?

    You could create a script in your Resource Manager (set the language to Python Script from the drop down) and place this code in it: def ResetThem(h): vs.ResetObject(h) vs.ForEachObject( ResetThem, "SEL = True" ); This script will reset all selected objects. Another option is to create a set of scripts that reset objects based on criteria, for example, the following script will reset all Space objects: def ResetThem(h): vs.ResetObject(h) vs.ForEachObject( ResetThem, "((PON='Space'))" ) You can also add these scripts as menu commands using the Plug In Manager.
