  1. For years, I've been wishing that you could assign different opacities to fill and pen style in a Landscape Area. You can do this with most other objects, but not a landscape area. It would make life a lot simpler as I like drafting with a more transparent fill, while having the pen set to 100%. Basically, I just want to be able to uncheck the "Link Pen Opacity" box in the "Set Opacity" palette.
  2. I'm working on an irrigation plan and decided to make a new symbol to use for an irrigation Outlet because I wanted the graphic to have a different color. It seemed to work at first, but when I rotate the direction of the spray, the symbol doesn't rotate with it like it does with my other irrigation outlet objects. All I did was duplicate one of the existing outlet symbols I had in the Resource Manager, changed the color, and gave it a different name.... but it just won't rotate! I also have "Toward Coverage" selected where it says "Symbol Rotation" in the Object Info Palette on all the outlets. Attached are a couple images for clarity. It's a little cluttered, but you can see that the burgundy, black, and dark blue symbols point in the same direction as the coverage, whereas the light blue symbols do not rotate with the coverage direction. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bug in the program?
  3. I find the Hydrozone tool to be very useful for MWELO calcs and for irrigation plans. However, I sometimes find the tool cumbersome to use. One request is how Hydrozones graphically display when there is a hole or negative space in the center of the polygon (or path object). The area seems to calculate properly, but I don't like how it looks like the hydrozone areas overlap in places it's not supposed to. Here are screenshots so you can see what I mean.
  4. I'm having a similar problem with the plant tool. I had to set the user origin to 0, 0 to get the plants to show up where I clicked.
  5. I would like this too. I'm working on an irrigation plan right now and having to manually adjust every single pipe jump is pretty time consuming and annoying. Right not there isn't even an easy way to set the radius on an individual basis. Being able to set the default jump size would be very helpful.
  6. How many times do we have to ask for a text column option for it to get added as a tool in Vectorworks?
  7. The problem also seems to disappear if I create a completely brand new callout with multiple leaders lines (even in a converted 2018 --> 2019 file). But the original callout created from a previous version still has the line weight problem even if I delete a leader line and then recreate it 🤷‍♀️. Kind of funny how that is.
  8. Hi @ASagatovVW, The file was originally created with version 2018 and then was converted to 2019. I guess that's the problem..... I opened a brand new 2019 file w/ new callouts and the issue didn't appear.
  9. Hi @RGyori I currently have mine set to "Good Performance and Compatibility." So far, changing this setting hasn't seemed to help. You can see my specs below. We use VWX Landmark in our office.
  10. I've noticed that if I use a callout and then add multiple leader lines.... but then later decide to change the line thickness, only the original leader line thickness changes. The added ones still have the same thickness as when the additional leader line was created. Has anyone else had this issue or noticed it as a problem? Attached is an example. It's not a huge problem, but it's still annoying to have to delete the additional leader lines and then redraw them.
  11. One annoying thing I've notice with drip outlets is that Vectorworks doesn't calculate the total drip line lengths when you specify that you want a branching configuration. It seems to be accurate and give a total amount when you specify a snaking configuration, but you end up with "estimated average line length" instead of total line length on branching configurations. This doesn't seem very helpful. Would it be possible to get the total drip line length on branching areas (excluding headers and footers)?
  12. I agree. I think something more like this would be helpful.
  13. @Boh I've tried to add it in the Workspace Editor, but the option doesn't appear to be available.
