  1. Hello @spettitt, - The data in the sockets in the profile groups should be more reliable as they do not get deleted on every reset. What is more, the other sockets are just copies of these sockets. Now to the main problem, I suppose that you see the changes on the second run because you miss a device reset to recreate the sockets from the profile group and duplicate them on the drawing. I suppose that simply putting the Device's foreach after the Socket's should resolve this. Important note to keep in mind, once again I will emphasize on this that the sockets on the drawing are mere duplicates of the sockets in the profile group -> the UUIDs in their attached records will most probably be pointing to the sockets in the profile groups. This might actually be useful for you, as in the end you should want to get the sockets in the profile groups. - I think that this should be easily doable for devices and circuits, you just have to set up the mapping correctly (not really sure if there is a worksheet function for UUID access though). As for sockets, I think that this will not work out, as you would want the sockets in the drawing to get the UUIDs of the sockets in the profile group, which might not be possible to achieve with the data manager mapping as it would require you to read data from one object and write it in another. Let me know if this helps and if you need any further help/info. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  2. - I suppose that you will have to remove the vertical line between the 2 texts to get this working but I will be able to confirm if you send me a file with this drawing label.
  3. Hello @spettitt, The data is stored in the Title Block Project Data record. You can take its handle from the name and then read directly from it I think. Let me know if you need any help with that. Note - do not make any changes to this record as it will not get applied to the TBBs in the file and will get the project data out of sync. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  4. - Can you share or PM me the 2018 file so that we can test what is going on?
  5. - No, you will have a fully functional drop point in this case.
  6. Hello @Thomas K., You can create an unstyled drop point there and then select the the symbol in the drop point OIP. Does this help? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  7. No change yet but we have this planned and will definitely work on it, so keep your eyes open.
  8. Hello @Enzo Vernusse, The easiest way to go for this would be to customize some of the existing socket graphics, such as the skt_con_classic_ symbols. Then in the socket OIP you can select skt_con_classic_ for the graphics style of these sockets. Let me know if this helps. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  9. Hello @Thomas Lowery, This sounds like some hidden classes in the viewports that get created. You can try playing around with viewport class visibilities to see if this changes anything. If you can share a sample file showing the problem I will be able to look into it as well. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  10. Hello @MartinR, You should be able to simply place it on the right with the tool or with drag&drop. For drag&drop you will get more precise results if you start the drag from the equipment item's insertion point (top, left, front). Let me know if you still have troubles getting this done. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  11. Hello @Jeff.Sullivan, Currently it is not possible to change this. I will add it to our wishlist database and we will consider it. Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  12. Hello @Mike Wood, Can you please share or PM me a file with the broken title blocks so that I can look into it? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov
  13. - You can try the following - Make a backup copy of your file - Delete the inner symbols for devices and sockets entirely from the resource manager - this will make all your devices and sockets look blank. - Then reset all plugins which should reimport the symbols at the correct size - If something looks broken, you can go back to the backup copy of the file
  14. - You can always create unstyled data tags. If you have already used the tool with styles, just open preferences and click on the Unstyle button to go back to unstyled creation. - I am not really familiar with this, but I will include it in the wishlist item. What would be your expected behavior here? To see the Create Data Tag Style menu or the Edit Data Tag Style dialog?
