  1. It is nothing special. Just use the currently available Issue/Revision Data formulas, but use them from the Custom Formula option, down in the link formulas list. Here is an example file. I suppose you will see blank field for the custom formula name as it is saved locally, but you could edit the formula to see what is in it. Let me know if you need further info. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov Latest issue date.vwx
  2. @frv Do you want the Current Issue Date specially in worksheets only? As currently, there is an easy way to get it in the TBB layout using a custom link formula with Issue Data.Issue Date in it.
  3. - Try changing the separator in the formulas from , to ; as they are affected by your system local settings.
  4. Hello @frv, There is not record field for the Current Issue Date, so ='Title Block Border'.'Current Issue Date" will not work. If you are trying to get the Current Revision Number you should try ='Title Block Border'.'Current Revision Number". As for current issue date, you could try Pat's formula with the nested IFs.

  5. Hello @Scott Waller, First, the disconnected devices, this is happening because you have circuits on the layer Room 8.10 Audio connected to devices on the layer Room 8.8 Audio. These circuits are not working in the VW2019 ConnectCAD too and that is why they are not working in VW2020. About the disconnected circuits when creating new circuits. The problem here is that the symbols for sockets that you are using are tricking our detecting functions and we are not detecting the devices from the centers of the sockets. However, there is a workaround to that, if you simply add a line that intersects the socket symbol center and make it the same color as the background so that it is not visible, the connect tool will handle the sockets correctly. I am attaching a file with the fixed symbols that you can import and replace in your file and the Connect tool will start working again for these socket symbols. Let me know if there is anything else. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov Fixed socket symbols.vwx
  6. Thanks, @Scott Waller, I see some disconnected devices on layer Room 8.10.AUDIO. We will check what is the problem and let you know. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  7. Hello @Amorphous - Julian, I will see if that is possible. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  8. Hello @Scott Waller, Could you send us a sample test file from VW2019 so that we can see what exactly is going on when we open it in VW2020? Thanks, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  9. Hello @Scott Waller, I would advice you to open the VW 2019 file in VW 2020 so that the devices there get updated on file open. After that you should not have problems. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  10. - I am afraid that these changes are not going to be easy to implement and it will not be possible to get them to VW2020.
  11. Hello @Amorphous - Julian, Thank you for your feedback again! I have thought about your issues and here are my suggestions that I want you to consider and let me know if you are ok with them: 1) Add This Title Block is Active in the TBB Preferences dialog. This will allow you to create inactive TBBs if you want to, which will create immediately, without any waiting time. 2) Add This Title Block is Active in the TBManager dialog. Having it there will allow you to modify this state from one place for multiple TBBs simultaneously. The idea here is to make the TBManager the best place for making bulk changes to TBBs and apply them at once. 3) Improve the way TBManager handles and applies changes, so that it becomes faster. That way, for example, clicking on Cancel should take a few seconds, not more than 5-10. Clicking on OK will still take some more time, if there are general changes that affect record definitions or document options, but this time should be less than before I hope. Let me know if you agree with these suggestions and I will keep you informed with what I can. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  12. Hello @spljohn, - Simply edit the symbols in the RM that are used for your panels and move the name text where you want it. ūüôā - Currently, It is not possible to change the default spacing. - Well, you could manually insert the desired connector symbol in the Equip Item profile group. However, you will get some weird behavior from that symbol, so I suppose currently there is no good way of achieving this. - I suppose you can again edit the symbols in the RM and make them look the way you want. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  13. Hello @James Chipman, - The maximum number of socket signals created from the Device Builder is 12. If you want to create more socket signals you will have to manually insert the sockets in the existing device and then, if you want to reuse it or share it with others, save the device as symbol and share this symbol. If you think that 12 is not enough for Socket Signals in the Device Builder, could you create a VE about that or a post in the wishlist thread? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  14. Hello @switchonet, You can change the coloring of the cable line by editing the class named Sys-Circuits-<Circuit Signal Here>. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  15. Hello @Andy Broomell, @Boh is right. If you create new TBB style out of a TBB assigned to a class, when you insert objects of that style from the RM they are assigned to the specified class and not the active class. However, this works only for drag & drop from the RM. Creating the styled TBB from the tool takes the active class. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
