  1. My favourite feature on my favourite tool so far! I'll consider switching to VW 2020, then, for those projects not using the Callouts!
  2. Nice! Nikolay, this is VW 2020? Is it usable for all Plug-ins? I was trying to read values from some of the HVAC ones and they are stubborn.
  3. Hello Nikolay, is it possible to format real values? Example: active units is meters. I wish to display certain values in cm, with precision 0.00 It constantly takes the document units, and there seems to be no precision setting available. We are using data tags also as labels for the Spaces. This allows us to edit the Spaces without selecting them. It is a huge speed improvement. Again, here too we need to coerce precision and units. We really need some units formatting for Data Tags.
  4. Not resolved and I don't have the feeling that it ever will before me to retire. I cannot state loudly enough how this issue is annoying. An endless bucketload of inefficiency to get around problems.
  5. Thank you Zeno, ūüėÄ ... I just have been reproached that I speak a total mix between German and English! I think that we will do a common zero for the project. We must use the coordinates during IFC export, so, let's go for "common zero".
  6. Ciao Zeno, do you use a common Z for all buildings or every building has its own project zero? Accordingly, how do you set up the Reference Elevation in the Export IFC Project settings?
  7. Hello all, Vectorlab is now forever down. TWK, I can send you the List Browser article privately.
  8. Thank you Ruben, Good to know. I am considering splitting floor finish from structural slab. That would make our 2D much easier, since the structural engineers don't ever get to see them, but they could stay for display in plan, as we need. It is quite schizophrenic, all in all.
  9. Hello, we have the request by our planning partners to set slabs to the story above. It flips our wall/slabs settings. As architects, we usually see the slab below. What do you use? What do you prefer? Below a basic test floor as example
  10. Expanding, every Vectorworks user sees a Design Layer, whose elevation and wall height are set, as a storey.
  11. Ciao Wes, when layer-less levels where introduced I asked for storey-less levels. I don't understand why do we need storeys since we can simply map them during export.
  12. Storeys are not difficult to understand, but their interface in VW is. It is messy. There are too many cryptical alerts and levels appear/disappear in too many flavours, across various quirksome dialogs.
  13. What a suggestion, no please? No symbols. It is a nightmare to maintain -the various widths, the various vertical positions, etc. etc. I did try, I even had special symbols changing by layer scale, this far before the current implementation of "2D components". The 3D can be as it is, we need this in 2D scale 1:50 or so. Take the object of Archicad, that would do very well here.
  14. Dear Marissa, we are a large nameless crowd with one voice, this forum. VW must put here a person with the power of taming a crowd. This isn't a gift everyone has. Jim had it. While VW is "listening" we do brew any kind of fantasy as to the possible answers to our complaints -or lack thereof. There is no limit, in any direction, to the kind of suppositions we can make. As a rule -such is the nature of a crowd - these fantasies are not positive nor good for you. Ciao, _c_ PS You are too kind for being thrown into this pit, get out of it!
