    Project Issue History - issue order problem

    @_James You could import the worksheets used for Project Issue/Revision History located in the default content - "Libraries\Defaults\Reports_Schedules\Title Block Records.vwx" and edit them. IMPORTANT - you should not edit any of the cells with formulas in them and if you change their position you will have to change this in the TBManager too in the respective fields. Anyway, you could change the static texts and add new rows/columns. After that, when creating the reports from the TBManager, the worksheet from the file would be used with your changes included. If this is not what you are expecting, please fill in wishes with your requests. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Project Issue History - issue order problem

    - Thanks 🙂 - I suppose that the help was created in an earlier phase of the implementation of the task, when the report was created in this order, but this logic was changed later on.

    Project Issue History - issue order problem

    Hello @_James, In the Project Issue/Revision History the Issues are listed from the latest issue to the oldest and at this time it is not able to change this. You could fill in a wish about it. If you want to have your worksheet look the way you want it, you could manually edit it and reverse the issue numbers in the formulas that have "Title Block Issue Data-'x'" in them, but you will have to update your worksheets manually from this point forward, as the TBManager will overwrite the formulas. - You could change this with the Direction popup. However, this will not solve your problem in the worksheets. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    importing title blocks from 2016

    Hello @jeremyb, If you are using Sheet Borders or VAA Title Blocks you should be able to update them to Title Block borders in VW 2018 and above. If you are using symbols, you will have to create TBB object and click on "Import Graphics" button in the Settings dialog and select that symbol, in order to be able to use that symbol with the TBManager. If you need any further help, you could send me a test file. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Titleblock Sheet Data

    Hello @David Ormsby, The concept of global Project Data and local Sheet Data is still the same. However, the TBManager main purpose is to edit multiple TBBs at once. If you want to do single TBB edit, you could toggle the selection mode from the top right corner of the TBManager, it is represented with a button with 3 dots in it. After that, you have to make sure you are editing the desired TBB and not another one. Another way to edit single TBB is to do this from the Settings dialog. Let me know if you need any more info.

    Custom Title Block - Scale Text

    Hello @GW Rodriguez, If you are using Title Block Border object you could edit its layout, select the text object and make sure "Wrap Text" is clicked in its OIP. Also, you should resize the text to set its maximum width and it will not become wider than that. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Title block madness

    - The Auto Drawing Coordination from Document preferences is responsible for uptading of TBBs, when the Sheet Number/Title of the Sheet Layers containing them were changed. The Auto Drawing Coordination in the TBB settings is responsible for updating the Sheet Layer's Number/Title, when they have been edited in the TBB. It sounds to me that you could get a better use of the Sheet Data field Page Number, instead of using Sheet Number. The Page Number is displaying the Stacking Order of the TBBs that have "This Title Block is Active" checked, if "Auto Generate Page Number" is checked. You could also manually edit this field from the Manager if "Auto Generate Page Number" is not checked. Let me know if this gets the job done for you. - Yes. You simply have to uncheck "Create a new document on startup" in the Session pane of Vectorworks Preferences dialog. - If you work only in the active file, the TBManager will have all the information it needs and you should be able to distinguish the different TBBs in the dialog easily by the "Editing sheet" static text located in the top, if you are in single selection mode, as you have just 1 TBB in each sheet.

    Title block madness

    Hello @Mik, - Could you send me an example simple file of what is going wrong here and maybe an image showing what do you want to happen? - What exactly is your issue with the Sheet Number? - You see that window when you have multiple files opened and you are opening the TBManager from your active file. The TBManager is designed to work with multiple TBBs at the same time and not only with the active file but with other opened or not opened files. That is why you get that question. If you are going to use the Manager for the active file only, you could simply select the checkbox to always do the selected action and press "Load active file only". - We have all the information about the active file all the time. If you want to load the information in the TBManager about other files, that are currently opened in the VW session, VW will have to switch back and forth to these files in order to load this information in the TBManager. The "currently opened files" are like the tabs in your web browser that you have opened. You could have multiple tabs opened but only one is active and visible to you - the active one. The same goes for the files in VW. - As the TBManager could be editing files that are not opened and not loaded for it, it could not know how many TBBs are there in a single layer. That is why we use the term "sheet" for the selection in the TBManager, as you could be editing one sheet but it could have many TBBs in it so you are actually editing multiple TBBs at the same time. If you want to change the sheets, which the TBManager is editing, you could do this by clicking the button "Select sheets to use" and from there select the desired layers with TBBs in them. You could also check out the help site for more information about new functionality and workflows - http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2019/eng/index.htm#t=VW2019_Guide%2FSetup%2FTitle_Block_Manager.htm%23XREF_51932_Title_Block_Manager Let me know if you have any more issues or questions and I will do my best to help with what I can. 🙂 Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Title Block Not Appearing

    Hello @UncleNonny, Could you send me the file that is causing this issue so that I could look into it? Also, is this happening when you work on a new file? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Sheet Layer Names Won't Stick

    It is recommended to keep both Auto Drawing Coordinations in the same state to avoid such confusions. The document auto drawing coordination is responsible for the synchronization from the layer to the TBB and the TBB auto drawing coordination for the synchronization from the TBB to the layer. Let me know if you have any other issues. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Custom Title Block not appearing in import title block tool

    Hello @JCW718, There are 2 types of symbols used by the Title Block that are colored red and black. The black symbols, as the one you have created, are regular symbols and are used with the Import TItle Block Graphics... button in TBB Settings dialog, Title Block Pane. The red symbols, displayed in the first image that you have attached, are style symbols. They could be used from the TBB Tool, OIP, or Use Style popups in the dialogs. If you want to see your symbol, you will have to look for it in TBB Settings->Import TB Graphics. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Sheet Layer Names Won't Stick

    Hello Dan, Do you have Title Block Border object in that Sheet Layer? If so, could you check if Auto Drawing Coordination is checked in Document Preferences->Display? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Can I add a drawing stamp to multiple sheets?

    - Not through the manager. However, you could use different TBB Styles and edit just the styles, as you have mentioned. Another way is to make a worksheet with Database row that is collecting all TBB objects and add the Custom Text field there and edit it from the worksheet. However, your TBBs must have their Drawing Stamp set to "Custom" (could be done from a worksheet too).
