  1. Hello @designit, Seems like I forgot about this, sorry about that... This should be fixed in VW 2021 SP3. 🙂 Let me know if this is not the case for you. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  2. @Ben59 Thanks for the video and the additional information. Now I think I understand what you are trying to do. Unfortunately, I think that it is not possible to make this happen atm. As I have explained above, once you place the symbol in the drawing, if you have convert to group checked, then you end up with a completely new object created, which has nothing to do with the symbol, it just used its graphics and that is all. Any further changes to the symbol will not affect this object. I do not think that it is possible to have multiple devices created and then edited from one place only. You can do this with regular symbols (convert to group deselected) but then these devices are no longer connectable, as they are wrapped in a symbol. What I can think of something that could help you in faster editing of device data would be to make use of the Current Layer Device Report and make your edits in the worksheet. That way you will have an overview of all the devices in the layer and their data and can easily edit it from the worksheet. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  3. Hello @Matt Strong, I was not able to reproduce this on MacBook Pro M1. Does the issue persist in a new file? If not, could you send me the file in which this issue happens? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  4. Hello @Ben59, I think that everything that Pat and Dandecko said is correct. Here is a screen recording showing the difference between having the created symbol convert to group or not. Since I cannot really understand what you are looking for, I hope that this video can help you. If not, please take some time to learn more about how symbols work and how to best use connectCAD to get your job done. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov video1764641846.mp4
  5. Hello @KrisM, The crash discussed here is fixed in VW 2022 SP2. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  6. Hello all, In VW 2022 SP2 we have added an extra parameter in the Socket - Connections Count, which is updated automatically. This parameter can be used in worksheet reports as well as in data visualization to create new data viz that shows only the connected sockets. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  7. Hello all, As of VW 2022 SP2, the Select Sheets to Use button in the TBManager is with updated position, as discussed above in this thread. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  8. Hello @Ben59, In the attached video you create symbols out of connected devices and make the symbol get converted to a group upon insertion/drag&drop. This means that once you place the symbol on the drawing you no longer have a symbol but a group of objects, which are independent from the symbol and have their own graphics. The same applies to the device symbol that you are using to create your devices. once you place it on the drawing you get a device object and not a symbol, since devices can get connected but symbols can't. So, once you place your devices they are no longer symbols and editing the symbol will not change the devices. What you can do is that you can try to make sure that you have the correct layout for your devices before you place them and in the cases where you want to edit them afterwards you can either edit them directly one by one or in VW 2022 you can edit only one of them and then use the Device Tool Eyedropper Mode to apply the same changes to the rest of the devices. - https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2022/eng/VW2022_Guide/ConnectCAD/Transferring_device_properties.htm?rhhlterm=device devices transferring transfer transferred&rhsearch=device transfer Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  9. Hello @KenD, Here is a video showing what I think you are trying to do. Let me know if it gets the job done or not. video1157432905.mp4
  10. Hello @KenD, You should be able to make any changes to the text objects inside of a drawing label, including alignment. Just edit the drawing label layout, select the text object that you want to modify and make your changes. For more information check the help site here - https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FAnnotation%2FCreating_drawing_labels.htm&rhsearch=drawing label&rhhlterm=drawing label&rhsyns= label Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  11. Unfortunately this is currently not possible. Currently you can only have the TBB Sheet Size set to any of the Fit to Page/Printable Area options and make the TBB always match the layer's page size. You can add a wishlist item in the wishlist tread with what you need as a workflow, so that we have it in our database and we can consider it.
  12. - So you would like to have the Title Block Sheet Size control the Page Size of the Sheet Layer? Or am I getting something wrong?
  13. - If you set the Plot Date Format to Manual, then you can have the Current Plot Date not update when publishing.
  14. In 2021 you can actually use the Current Plot Date field of the title block border which automatically updates on publish. I think that this should get the job done without the usage of any scripting.
  15. - If you set up your Sheet Size in the TBB to be Fit to Printable Area or Fit to Page it should get exactly what you are looking for, if I am not wrong.
