  1. I have yet to see a work-around for this, but I'd love the option to duplicate palettes. Two uses: I use record formats attached to symbols extensively. Having to swap between the "Shape" and "Data" tabs is a pain. I'd like to have a window for each open. Having different tabs in the Navigation window open at the same time showing your class and layer lists. Thoughts?
  2. YES! This has been on my "send to Vectorworks" list for quite a while!

    2020-GIS feature for Spotlight

    My vote is obviously a yes!
  4. Reading though the posts...this will be available for Architect and Landmark users. Any chance a stripped-down version could be implemented for Spotlight users? I don't think we need the fine level of detail required by others. However, when designing an outdoor event having the topographical or terrain details could be very helpful.

    (humorous) Speaker array & data tag problem

    Here you go! a few other data tags are there showing they work...just some odd rounding error (and no unit transfers over as well) speaker array weight glitch.vwx
  6. Built a speaker array with the components I needed, and created a data tag to notate the array name and its weight. VW decided to be VERY accurate, but... I adjusted the drawings units, re-entered each of the components weight, deleted and re-inserted the data tag...no luck. Also, the units of measurement aren't transferring to the data tag. Any ideas? (btw...the array weight should have been 885lbs. The difference is 0.00000072 lbs, or about 14 grains of sand.)
  7. Title says it all! See attached. Anybody else able to recreate this?

    SLVP border option

    it accomplishes about 95% of what I want it to do...however any annotations appear outside the crop box (callouts and labels) See attached #1. In my head, the border would be where the highlighting perimeter is when you select the viewport. See attached #2.

    SLVP border option

    I'd love the option to create a border for a SLVP natively. Currently workflow is creating a rectangle with no fill and placing it over the SLVP. Application: If I put the main drawing and a detail on the same sheet, the detail drawing stands out a bit better if I put a border around it

    Worksheet Improvements

    My two requests for worksheets: - Make the functionality and interaction more like Excell/Numbers (formulas, moving cells, merging, etc) - The ability to import, export and reference cells/columns/data from an external spreadsheet file (or have the worksheet portion of the file .vwx file separate and externally editable.) Hope I didn't hijack your thread!

    Vectorworks and ConnectCAD

    I think everybody has seen the press release about Vectorworks (or Nemetschek) buying ConnectCAD. Pretty excited to see what develops! Wonder if any of the VW staff (or maybe Conrad) who monitor this board can comment about what to expect in the 2020 release? Features, pricing, etc. From the press release, it seems that it will be a part of the software (C++), not a plug-in (Vectorscript)
  12. I find using the "Point on Arc" mode really useful for the work I do...I'd love to have that mode available when drawing other shapes. Polyline and spaces in particular. Thoughts, or am I missing something hidden in a menu? EDIT: It's there, but doesn't behave the way it does when using the Arc tool

    Associate an object with a space

    Maybe a newbie question...I'm a spotlight user, and this question may fall under more of an architectural scope. Example: I build a project with a number of spaces (in 3d) and objects (lights, speakers, symbols, etc) I'd like to create a report that lists the object name and a location in columns. As I move/place/duplicate an object, I'd like to object to automatically "associate" with the space it is in. How do I associate an object to a space I created? Can an object "know" that it is "in" a space? I'm sure it can be done via record formats and the report tool, but unsure how. I see that every space is given a unique (hexadecimal) name, but I think I'm missing a step in the middle. Does this make sense? Pardon the "air quotes". I'm using a lot of layman terms that probably aren't correct! Thanks! Josh

    Inconsistant label legends

    Thanks Kevin, that makes sense. But is there a way to make these consistent? I'd like the option for these to look the same across the entire drawing,
  15. We get a whole folder of .dwg's from an architect...sometimes hundreds, and I only need one or two (floorplan and RCP). If they are not organized or labeled properly, I find myself opening them one-by-one in AutoCAD LT until I find the correct one. Then I have to import it into VW. It would speed up the workflow a bit. It would also be nice to consolidate all the apps on my computer.
