  1. Hello @twk, Have you tried using the Scale field in the Sheet Data of the TBB in VW 2021? From the help site you can see that it works like that: " When a title block border is inserted on a layer, this value is automatically completed with the layer’s scale for design layers, or with the scale of the first viewport on the sheet, if there are viewports, for sheet layers. If the viewports have drawing labels in their annotations, the Scale display format (for example, architectural or engineering) is taken from the first drawing label in the viewport. Click Update Scale to update the value as needed. If the sheet layer contains multiple viewports with different scales or with different scale display formats, the Set Default Scale dialog box opens; set the Scale value to be used in indeterminate cases. " I think that it does exactly what you are doing using that script. Correct me if I am wrong. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  2. Thanks for reporting this @Ross McLee, I will fill in a bug about it. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  3. Hello @teedd, I am not able to reproduce your issue. It is really strange what is happening, because restarting VW should not affect the way we detect sockets/devices. It would be of much help if you can find certain steps that reproduce this issue always, so that we can see what is causing it. In the meantime, can you check where will it get you if you click on Navigate to Other End of Circuit button in the circuit OIP? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  4. Hello @LauraCB, As of VW 2021 it should be possible to make object specific changes to multiple TBBs using the TBManager and have only the modified TBBs checked out. For example, if you would like to add new revision to sheets 1 and 3 and you have sheets 1 to 4, open the TBManager, click on Select Sheets to Use and select only sheets 1 and 3, then add the revisions you would like to add and click OK. After this, only the TBBs on sheets 1 and 3 will be checked out. Let me know if this covers your expectations. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  5. Thanks for the feedback! I will add this as a wishlist item for the TBB. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  6. Hello @Edgar RAMEL, You can put the scale bar in the TBB object, but I am afraid that it will not behave as expected when the layer scale changes. The way to go would be to have the scale bar outside of the TBB and manually put it together with the TBB in the layers you need. Not sure if there is any other way to go for this. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  7. What exactly do you want to see/know?
  8. There it is (VW 2021) - Equip Item Data Tag.vwx
  9. Well then, you can try using Data Tags for this purpose. Just tag the Equipment Item with a Data Tag, edit the Data tag's layout, insert a text and specify what to display using the Dynamic Text value in the OIP. I can send you an example if you want one.
  10. - Actually, you are asking about 2D equipment in 2D rack or about 3D racks? Because tagging of 2D equipment is absolutely possible.
  11. Hello @Daniel Dickman, Unfortunately, currently it is not possible to do this. Could you send me a test file showing what would you like to display in the 3D Equipment so that we can see how best to resolve this? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  12. Hello Daniel, When the signal is empty the arrow is taking the class Sys-Circuits. It seems like this class has some messed up markers. If you edit the class and select the correct markers for it they will point correctly. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  13. Hello @genev, Can you send me a test file with just the title block in it, so that I can check what is going on? Thanks, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  14. Hello @bluewater2222, Seems like hyperlinks are not made to work when inside other objects or symbols. Maybe there is another way to achieve what you are trying to do. Can you attach an example pdf here with working hyperlinks, so that I can see what is the goal? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  15. @Conrad Preen, @Kelzilla1000, Hello guys, The disappearing text is more like rendering issue, since the text is visible when zooming in/out. What is more, turning unified view on fixes this. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
