  1. @tsw There is probably a better way to do it, but this might work for your need. If you attempt to delete the reference file in the navigation palette, there is a pop up that prompts you to decide what will happen to the referenced contents. One of the options is import into the current document. This may result in a very large file, but you won't have to track down reference files 😉
  2. @David Meagher Gray the layers that you don't want to change. You will be able to see them for reference, but you won't be able to effect change to any objects living on those layers.
  3. @Dishav Vasudev I tried playing with the location settings with the same result. Under the 'conversion' category, there is an option to 'Convert all objects to 2D'. That worked!
  4. Anyone ever see this issue? Know a cause/solution? The file is fine in AutoCAD, but importing into Vectorworks messes with the arcs. All of the attributes are correct, except they've been given different start/end points.
  5. @DBruhnke That works nicely! Thanks
  6. @Pat Stanford That's a bummer it can't happen in a single cell. Thanks for the workaround.
  7. I'm attempting to write a formula in a worksheet that amends some math with text. In excel, the formula would look like this: =(A1*A2) & "A" VW doesn't seem to like the & "A" part Any help would be appreciated
  8. Looking for some assistance with creating worksheet formulas. I'm attempting to nest some multipliers in a SUM formula and can't quite find the right way. My failed attempt: =SUM(B2..(B3*2)..(B4*3))
  9. That did it. Thanks @Pat Stanford
  10. The data tag tool does almost exactly what I need, but it has a physical connection to the symbol. I need the symbol and the tag to exist independently so if I move the symbol it won't cause the tag to move. Any thoughts on how/if this could be done with a marionette network?
  11. Following up on the use of data tags - it works but not without faults. While the tag pulls the info needed, it is also tied physically to the symbol. When the symbol moves position, so does the data tag. For my purpose, I need the geometry to exist independently, so either symbol or tag can change position without effecting the other. I would still like to see a text box with the ability to link directly to a worksheet cell.
  12. Hi @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Can you please advise on where to access/how to change this setting?
  13. @Boh Thank you, Thank you! Data tags did the trick. This is going to save me soooo much time.
  14. Before the title block was revamped a couple years ago, one used to be able to tab through entry fields. It seems that is not possible anymore. Am I missing something? Is there a way to quickly get through fields without having to navigate the mouse each time? If not, I would like to request that tab'ing' be reinstated.
