  1. You can use the the worksheet formula FormatField to extract issue data from formats. It will show you all the issue data you need for the formats you need. However, you cannot modify this data.
  2. Try changing the file type to .txt and it should get the job done. Other approach is to copy the script in a new script from the RM.
  3. Hello @_James, The .px and .py syntax are different. Why do you need the script in python? It should be possible to execute it as pascal script with no issues. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  4. Here is more detailed information from the help site - https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FWorksheets%2FWorksheet_functions.htm&rhsearch=datatagfield&rhhlterm=datatagfield&rhsyns=
  5. Hello @jimi123, You can use the worksheet function DataTagField. It will return the value of the custom text of your data tag. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  6. - This value is based on complex calculations, including not only the heating system, but the ventilation system, the desired interior temperature and maybe others. Changing some of these components will affect the result.
  7. - I do not think that you can create your own category, but you can edit the list of systems in the existing categories. The Edit List.. option is in the second list with the systems of the selected category. You can create your own list of systems or add/edit systems in existing lists. Here is an example of where the Edit List.. is with custom system list called "My Electric system":
  8. Hello @drelARCH, Not sure why there is no direct electric in the default heating systems. Anyway, you can easily add custom systems to your system lists by selecting the Edit List... option in the list of systems. The new system will be saved in your user folder. Another way to go for this is to attach the required energos system record to an object in your drawing, edit its values to be correct and use it in the project settings (it will be listed in the Drawing category) as shown in the image below. This way your system will be saved in the document and not in your user folder. Let me know if this gets the job done. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  9. Hello @TomKen, This is coming from your printer page settings. This is different for each printer so you will have to check your printer settings from Page Setup. You can also set your title block to be fitting not to the Printable Area but to the Page Area, but then, if you print it, it will be cropped, as the gray boundary is not part of the print result. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  10. Hello @Markus Barrera-Kolb, Yes, you can use the Title Block Manager to edit multiple title blocks across multiple files. You will have to make sure you make any edits from the manager with the correct selection, though, so that you keep your project data in sync. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  11. - Yes, okay so the default report is not changing issue cells, yours does. This is because the latest issue is always in the record Issue Data-1. This means that whenever you create new issue, it offsets all of the rest issues by 1 number, which leads to the cell change in your worksheet. Unfortunately, I do not think that this could be fixed automatically, you will have to make these changes manually if you do not want your issue cells to change.
  12. If you are using a limit to the displayed issues, the formulas will be created from this limit down to 1 starting from right to left, so that Issue Data-1 is in the right most cell. The last created issue is always saved as Issue Data-1 and this is causing the cell position change. If you turn off the Limit option in the TBManager, you will always get the oldest issue in the first column and the issues will not change cell position. - Any feedback on what is expected from the worksheet reports is welcome and considered. ūüôā
  13. Hello @ryanww, Try removing the terminator tool from your workspace and then readding it back again. Let me know if this helps. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  14. Hello @Boh, The only difference I see is the circle you are using in your custom formula and the order in which issues are filled. Could you give me some more information on what exactly do you want to get? Thanks, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  15. Hello @ryanww, If I understand correctly you are working with 2 separate VW files and use ConnectCAD Links? Or are you in 1 VW file and use arrow connections? In any case, could you send me a test file with steps how to reproduce your issue? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
