  1. Hello, I need to change the difference between the unit size and the rough opening size for some doors for some of our glazed sliders, so that the correct information will read out in the schedules for coordination with ordering. I don't seem to be able to find an option for this in the obj info. settings. Anyone know how to do this? It would also be great if anyone knows how to change the units in the rough opening column in the schedule to read out as inches for further ease of coordination. Thanks!
  2. Is cloud services a separate cost, or, part of vectorworks 2018 package? Can you continue to work on the vectorworks file while the sheets/images are being rendered in the cloud?
  3. I am trying to create a worksheet with multiple formulas in it. For this I need to be able to search different criteria in each column. The type is spaces. What is the order of the text I need to input into the cell to pick up with the criteria would do in a database row? I have looked through all of the following places and it is not very clear to a novice. http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Function_Reference_Appendix#attrCrit http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Search_Criteria#Search_Criteria_Format http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2016/eng/VW2016_Guide/Worksheets/Worksheet_Functions.htm Thanks!
  4. Benson, thanks for the ideas. I have all classes on and all layers on set to view everything to try and find them and set to show/snap/modify all No luck.
  5. I have a number of extrude along paths that are only visible in my sheet layer viewports, and not visible in the design layers. This makes editing them or deleting them impossible. Any ideas?
  6. It is solved. Just need to have cell 4 =Value(B4*B3)
  7. I am able to multiply other columns with the surface areas, it only shows the #Value! error where I am multiplying by the Cost Index
  8. I am able to get a read out from this method for everything except the Cell 4 which would be the resulting cost estimate shows #value. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
  9. Is there any way you could direct me to this post?
  10. @tfloraditchthe only time annotation dimensioning does not work is if you are dimensioning a rotated viewport, for example where you have a difference in project north and true north. This is the only case where I have a class and design layer dedicated to dimensioning. I have tried eliminating this by splitting files where I need to show site plan (true north) sheets in a separate file to floor plans (project north), however I loose the automated elevation/section notations when doing this.
  11. @bohlrI've been wanting to find a similar shortcut, but cannot locate "Make all attributes by class" as an option in edit workspace,
  12. Hello, I am developing worksheets to give me take-offs for my zoning and code area requirements for permits. I am currently doing this through assigned zones in space labels which seems to tie everything together well. However, it is taking a long time to change the settings, class settings, label setting to the space labels in each new project. Is there a way to change and save the default space label settings so that this is already done? Thanks, Rebecca
  13. @markddYes, this works to a certain extent. Thanks for the help. The slab object cannot be assigned a surface hatch from the attributes palette unless it is un-styled, which removed some of my control over this slab type in the whole project. Keeping the slab 'styled' for other take-offs, I can get the following: the best result showing hidden line for both foreground and background. Draw-backs of this are that symbols display their 3D look and not their 2D look, and we still don't get the top/Plan hatching in the walls. Currently resulting to using two viewports layered on top of one another to get the best of both worlds, although this work-around is very time consuming to both create and maintain/update.
  14. @TomKlaber The floor is a slab object. It does not show the surface hatch in Top Plan. Maybe I have my settings messed up? I would like it to be showing the surface hatch of the texture I have applied to the top component of the floor slab by class. Is there another way I should be doing this?
  15. Found out that =ComponentArea(1) function also works, this way you have control over which layer of the slab style you are getting read outs for.
