    Spot Levels to 3d loci for site model

    Hi Mate, I have no idea what to do with that...so will not even attempt to look for another set of "how to's" to remedy my initial issue. Hopefully, there is a simple way to overcome the issue, it must be fairly common. Thanks anyway.
  3. Hi All, The drawing attached has spot levels for the location with the z value in the text box next to them, is there a workaround for me not having to manually enter the Z value on the entire drawing..! Total mission !! Any help would be appreciated. Regards Stu CHRISTCHURCH HOUSE.vwx

    Title Block Manager VW2020

    This still does not work how I would like it... There is a simple way to create a Title Block and VW does not provide it.. For me, Title Block manager and then should ask me what I would like in a Title Block and the wording and then populate and produce it, not edit what someone else thinks I want. Creates so much work I have actually come to the point of giving up.

    Title Block Manager VW2020

    @twk hi mate, This is why I am trying to use title block manager, I can knock this up in Illustrator miles quicker than in VW. The title block manager does not seem to be working correctly. I am trying to spend less time messing about with VW than I do actually designing the space...

    Title Block Manager VW2020

    Hi All, I'm in the process of standardizing how we present work and need to create a custom title block and then saving it as a company-wide layout. A few points to note so far on TB manager: 1: How do I bring a logo into the title block and keep it there, I can't seem to see any option for this. 2: De-selecting items like "project manager" and they do not leave the title bock, they are still there. 3: Is there an option then stops the text leaving the title block boundaries. At present, I export everything to Illustrator as for me it's quicker than spending more time trying to get a title block to work than the actual design work.!! Any help would be much appreciated. Regards Stuart
  7. Hi ALL, I need to make up construction drawings for the above, has anyone had experience of the material as there does not seem to be a resource for it at all. Also any wall construction detail help would be good, ie correct scale an bed depths, soldier courses as i don't really want to be drawing every brick! Regards Stuart

    Planting Plans..

    Just to give you an idea the size of the site im dealing with., I have attached the drawing. The ability to plant directly from the VW plant database would be a massive time saving..... HAR-LAN-18017-XX-XX-XX GA-LANDSCAPING 30:4:19.pdf

    Planting Plans..

    Think I have it sorted with that method Uglycat... thanks How do I change the font and font style for the plant tags/labels so they sit with the current RHS nomenclature standards... E.g: Acer japonicum 'Kings Copse' Achillea millefolium 'Rougham Cream' Please say this is possible as it also throws the font for the entire drawing out too...

    Planting Plans..

    Hi Guys, I am after circles only, linked at centres, I don't need any funny shapes or outlines. See attached image of how a planting plan should look. Will this also create a plant schedule for me to add to the drawing?

    Planting Plans..

    Hi Guys, I want to create a traditional planting plan that adheres to a few guidelines, not using the really bad plant symbols VW currently uses. From what I have seen I have to draw a circle, then make it a plant/edit contents, then find it in the resource browser, then use that plant, then modify any labels.... Is there a way of choosing a plant from the main database and planting it on a drawing...as a normal black circle and a label? Many thanks SW

    Scale Bar

    Hi All, Im struggling with the clunky look of the scale bars in VW, has anyone got any hints to make them look a lot better?
  14. Hi All, Trying to get a picket fence to work in the fence/railing tool and it seems to be impossible to get right at all..!! End up with all sorts of irrelevant options etc... Any ideas on how to get this to work ? Thanks S

    Plant Data Base

    Hi All, I am trying to search for plants that are in there plant database but do not show up un the resource browser.... anywhere! Only the really basic stuff! Usually I do manual entries on planting plans but I'm keen to use this database and explore the planting element in VW2017. Any help would be great thanks!
