  1. Thanks Tom. Am I right in saying that I can only import Sketchup models if I have VW2020 or higher? Thanks Justine
  2. Apologies for the couple of question in 1 post but I think that they go together. All for VW 2019 If I want to use a 3D image files such as those on Sketchup3D warehouse for my Vectorworks drawings how do I create a 'resource' to reuse including a 2D image so that it is visible in top plan? What formats can I use? Do I duplicate something from resource manager and then create an image prop for use in the 3D element as we do for plants? Or, do I create a 2D symbol and attach the suppliers images to the 3D element? If there is a video somewhere please send me the link. I can only find videos that deal with differing elements - image props etc. Thanks Justine Wood
  3. I am attempting to create a tree 3D image using the attached png which I have bought and downloaded. When I select create image prop in Model, and import and elect the image nothing happens. It doesn't open up the screen allowing me to create transparencies etc. I have the image saved outside of the file, on my iCloud Drive. Any ideas as I need this image today? I have VW 2019 Many thanks
  4. thanks - am setting up some training. I didn't set any lighting that I know of but will investigate
  5. I created a garden design in VW2019 and it all looked great in top plan. Then I went into rear view and rendered open GL to see what the elevation looked like and only saw the gravel hatch not the texture. I then changed the 3D setting to slab, set the slab height at 5 and the depth at 1 and used main class for the texture and the gravel appeared in the elevation. When I returned to top plan the plan looks like the attached screengrab - solid black even though the object info says hatch. What can I do to get the hatch back for my top plan? Also, the landscape areas are looking really ethereal after rendering. very hazy yet dominating. Any ideas on how to keep the density but up the contrast? Many thanks Justine 3026:CP.vwx
  6. I missed this previously Tamsin. Thank you. Is this also how I would add external image files for furniture etc? So helpful.
  7. Currently I have a file with all the plant records I have created that I use across my Client planting plans. It works but I am sure that I must be able to create my own library so that I can access it from any file and still create plant schedules etc. Is there a tutorial anywhere or can someone tell me how to do this when I duplicate a record to create my own plant record? I should add that I am on VW2019. Thanks
  8. Ahhh thanks that is all clear. Last question is how do I deduplicate. I have many borders using the same plant records. I have clicked summarise but I still have a row per mention of the plant record. I just want to deduplicate so that I have 1 row per plant record where the quantity totals ALL incidences of that plant record.
  9. I have checked the number of worksheets and deleted all of them and still when I amend the report the changes do not show up after I click OK. It just appears to hang in the edit report window and then when I click outside to return to the report nothing has changed.
  10. I am trying to create a customer report that has one column for the 2D symbol associated with the plan record, another column for the Latin name and the last column with the quantity that plant record. So not importing an image - using something that exists already. When I use the reformatted report (Basic with images) it is that image field that I am trying to create in a custom report.
  11. Thanks Tom. I'll check. I've just created a custom report but now I can't find teh right name for the field with the 2D symbol so that I can use this as key. Any ideas. TBH I have thrown Homeschooling out of the window right now. 🤣
  12. Apologies for that bit of homeschooling that I also attached😃
  13. Thanks Tamsin. That was all simple and I did as you said. However when I clicked OK it didn't update the table in the document. Is there something else that I need to do?
