  1. Hello @Daniel Dickman, You can check the help index and search for ConnectCAD in this "What's New" page - https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/MdCWFv1io9TA/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FLandingPage%2FNew_features.htm%23XREF_57745_New_Features&rhsearch=iterate selection Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  2. Hello @Jiajing, - Have you tried editing the text field in the Title Block Layout and presetting its width (making it wrap text) ? That way, the field will not get longer than the set width and will automatically split the file name in multiple lines, using spaces as separators. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  3. Thanks for the feedback @Andy Broomell. Not sure if this is how other users would like this to work? I will be checking for more feedback on this one.
  4. Hello @cwojo23, In VW 2021 if you have a viewport with Drawing label that has architectural scale displayed and you are in imperial units, clicking on the Update Scale button in the Title Block will get you the same scale display as in the Drawing Label. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  5. Hello @Amorphous - Julian, The changes suggested in this thread are implemented in VW2021. You can check them out there. 🙂 Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  6. Hello @Dylan Shaleen, In VW 2021 if you have a viewport with Drawing label that has architectural scale displayed and you are in imperial units, clicking on the Update Scale button in the Title Block will get you the same scale display as in the Drawing Label. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

  8. Hello all, You can check on this new functionality in VW 2021. 🙂 Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  9. You can try changing the socket orientation to R, but this could lead to unwanted side effects.
  10. Hello @Rob Sherman, If I understand correctly, you are trying to set line style for cables, independent of their signal. Is that correct? If so, I do not think that there is a way to do this. Circuits take the line style of their signal classes and circuits of the same signal will look the same. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  11. - Unfortunately, it is a bit too late to make fixes to VW2018 while we have this bug fixed in VW2019. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  12. Hello @mark4, The files that you find in the user folder (the one you specified) are containing only user made changes. It seems like you have not made any changes to the signals/connectors and that is why you do not have these files there. You can find the application files in the same sub folders, but starting from your app folder, instead of the (year) folder. Once you find these files, copy them in your user folder and then you can modify them. Let me know if you have any issues. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  13. - Okay, I have just tested to make sure and it seems Reset all plug-in objects is not updating the File Name in VW 2018 SP6, but it does in VW 2019 SP6 and VW 2020 SP4. @Andy Broomell - there was a bug in VW 2020 SP3 that was fixed in SP4 about this, so if you are using SP4 now it should be working fine for you in publish too. Let me know if that is not the case. - Could you send me a test file so that I can analyze it? Thanks again for the feedback! 🙂
  14. Hello @MaleXLR, The Title Block Border in 2018 was introduced to replace the VAA Title Block and the Sheet Border. Since the VAA was a third party product, we seem to have missed some functionalities that it had, however, over the years and receiving your feedback, we have been continuously improving the Title Block Border object. In the next versions you will find the ability to have automatically populated Scale based on viewports, as well as the ability to edit multiple TBBs at once, using the Title Block Manager and many more improvements requested by users. You can check how the TBB looks in future versions checking the VW help site and looking for the Title Block Border help there. I am sorry to hear that you have issues working with the TBB and I am trying to help you overcome these issues and fix any bugs that come out from the forum here. As for revision data, in VW2018 we are using one record for revisions with one field for Number, one for Date, etc. instead of multiple fields (Number-1, Number-2...). This is the way VAA Title Block worked too, if I am not wrong. In order to get the single revision data you have to either use the Title Block worksheet reports or use the worksheet formula SUBSTRING. Auto drawing coordination - Make sure to use the same status for Use Auto Drawing Coordination in your TBBs and in your document settings to avoid undesired results. Finally, about the file name, if you change the file name you will have to reset all title blocks using Tools->Utilities->Reset All Plug-Ins in order to update their file name (or using the way with Project Data change, which you found). The reason for this is that not everyone would be happy if their title blocks get reset on each file name change. Any wishes, suggestions and improvements that you would like, you can always write them here in the forum and we will consider them. Let me know of any other questions/issues that you have. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  15. Hello @Christiaan, All of these settings are saved in the Publish Saved set in the document. Only the custom naming schemes are saved in the user folder too, but only if they have been added to the list using the Add button. They are saved in the file "PublishItemNames.xml". Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
