  1. 99% of the time I work in rotated plan, placing plants directly on the design layer (I know it's possible to place them on sheet layers and avoid rotation-based issues, but I explicitly don't want to do this). Problems are 2: 1) Plants disappear when placed. They can (usually) be brought back by toggling "unified view", though weirdly it doesn't matter whether it's toggled to off or to on. Presumably this has to do with the working plane in rotated plan, but I can't figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. 2) The rotation of the plants themselves (in the OIP) are at the plan rotation, not 0, which creates havoc with the plant tags. Screenshot shows "disappeared" Osmanthus symbol. If I toggle Unified View OFF it reappears!!! I can deal with the second problem by realigning tags and leaders (somewhat arduous), but the first problem is now close to intolerable. Plant tool has _always_ been a nightmare, but I've now realised how ridiculous it is that with big jobs it's actually now quicker to work by hand, which shouldn't be the case. Can anybody help? -------------------- Windows 10 VW2016
  2. Having exactly the same problem. Did you ever fix this or find a workaround... Effectively makes it impossible to use a custom resource library of plant object. Martin Deasy Windows 10 VW2016
  3. Printing black/white construction drawings. One of my Sheets has very slightly shaded background (scarcely noticeable), rather than being transparent/white. This massively increases the print spooling time (other normal documents print immediately).Anyone else had this puzzle? To clarify: it's the entire printed area--excepting the paper margin--that has the shading, not just the viewport. And I've confirmed that background is set to white in interactive appearances tab.
  4. Select similar is not behaving as it should. I created a pattern of adjoining hexagons using move by points (so all identical by definition, and same alignment). Then I tried to select similar (with size and object checked in the preferences box), but only a few of the hexagons were selected. Can anyone shed light on this strange behaviour? Thanks.
