    Title Block Manager VW2020

    Hello @Stu Wilson, The Title Block Border is giving the users the ability to have fully customized layout. This could not be achieved if we simply relied on clicks in the manager or any other dialog. That is why the workflow for showing/hiding/creating/deleting texts displayed in the TBB layout should happen in the layout edit mode and is as easy as simply working with text objects. However, if you do not want to customize your TBB so much, you could simply create 1 style with the desired layout and work with it. If you want to show/hide objects from it, you could assign them to different classes and then just show/hide the classes. Also, just out of curiosity, even if we had the functionality to create text objects in the layout from the manager, where would these objects be placed? We would either have to place them on the same place or add additional controls for defining the position. And the position is not the only thing that needs difinition, we have text size, font, style, etc. which are now easily edited from the layout. Anyway, you could fill in a wish about this and we will look into it. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  2. Hello everyone, First of all, the suggested workflow from @Boh is very nice. Thank you for sharing this here! 🙂 As for the delay, the Title Block Border is a complex object. Apart from giving the ability for maximal customization of the layout, it has a couple of automatic fields that work in synchronization with other TBBs in the document. In order to keep these fields up to date, we have to go through the whole document and update the data in each TBB. We have tried to limit this to happen only when it is needed and when this happens to be as fast as possible. However, for big documents this is slow no matter how we optimize this. Clicking on This Title Block is Active is one of the operations that requires this whole process to happen, as this check is marking which TBBs are used in the automatic data synchronization. That is why it is recomended to leave this field checked and use other fields for more regular modifications and inclusions in worksheets, as other fields will not trigger the whole synchronization process.

    Assign Data Tag On OIP Name Field

    Hello @Daniel B. Chapman, You could use the Data Tag to achieve this. Simply use Object Function for Data Source and Object Name for function. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Title Block Manager VW2020

    Hello @Stu Wilson, To me it seems that using one Title Block Border style should get the job done for you. 1: Edit the style layout and insert your logo there. It will then be present in all TBBs using that style 2: How do you deselect items? Also, where from do you want them to be removed? If you uncheck the Display for the field, it is not displayed in the dialogs, but if it is linked in the layout it will remain linked. In order to remove it from the layout you will have to edit the layout and either unlink the text object or delete it. 3: You could use the Word Wrap functionality of text objects in the TBB layout. If you need any further help let me know. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Hello @mreadshaw, Could you check what are your Export PDF Settings set to? You might have your Export Range set to Current View and this will explain the results. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Undo of a symbol import destroys Undo-Stack

    Hello @Matthias Ganninger, I think that there is already a bug about that. Is this happening in VW2020 only? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Date in Title Block

    - Plot Data Format is in Title Block Border Settings dialog, Sheet Data Pane, Current Plot Date field has the Plot Date Format popup - select one of the Auto options there - Then, go to File->Publish, Select the Sheet Layer with the TBB for publishing by moving in on the right side of the list with PDF checked in the popup below the left list. Then, select the PDF items on the right list and click on Options... button, which will give you the Export PDF options dialog. In this dialog you have a checkbox for Reset All Plugins on export. You should check this checkbox. If these steps are not clear, I could make a screen recording showing you the steps. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Fit Walls to Objects

    Hello @Kevin Allen, The problem in your file is that there are many wall peaks created and they cannot be visualized. You could remove your peaks and fit walls again with greater curved wall fit interval (for me it worked with 5'). Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    VWs 2019 Title Block - batch Renaming/renumbering Sheets

    @twhitwell6, Do you have Auto Drawing Coordination checked in Document Settings? If so, could you send me a test file to see what is going on wrong? The TBBs should update when the sheet is renamed.
