  1. If it helps anyone for the future I also had a long filename trying to save to a folder with commas (on a network share) which threw up the Teigha Library error. After keeping the long filename (48 characters) but switching to a folder without commas on my desktop, it worked fine
  2. HI guys, depending on your needs, you could also format the cells/columns/rows to be numbers with X amount of decimal places displayed. .. Will keep any calculations more accurate but not make the Worksheet a PITA to read at the same time
  3. Hi @Pat Stanford, I know this is a bit old, but have come across this one myself now. I interact with VW worksheets to cost out playground jobs and produce fabrication lists of symbols, so I have a vested interest in getting to the bottom of this. I have had a play with your sample document and have not been able to reproduce the issue, however I have been able to reproduce in my own documents and I believe it may be something to do with the shape/size of the object which defines the location. I'm unable to attach the screen capture here for some reason so I have included a link to the video on GD (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zgDb1CYLckKgMDGoiZSKiyNF7k5Eu2K8/view?usp=sharing) Not sure why it behaves like this; ideas? My only thought is that the symbols I am using exist in 3D, which maybe affects it somehow?? @knickers I know this is an old one now, but can you have a look at the video and see if you get the same behaviour?
  4. Hi sbarrett, I've been having a play with this sun path marionette and it's great! I just had a quick query for you - the azimuth bearings are correct but the sunrise and sunset dates are incorrect for our locations in NZ (out by almost exactly one hour in our winter and almost exactly two hours in our summer - I'm guessing daylight savings has something to do with the hour difference between the two) If I could be so bold as to suggest for the future (and please don't take this as criticism) : - Ability to turn on and off the blue intermediary lines (perhaps classed as something unique?) - Ability to turn off the blue intermediary sunrise and sunset times (perhaps classed as something unique?) As a work-around, once I have set the location I can ungroup the Marionette object and delete (or classify and alter visibility) the unwanted intermediate lines and times to achieve the desired look
  5. Hi guys, Thanks for all the assistance! I haven't had much of a chance to play yet, so will update you guys once I do
  6. @Marissa FarrellThanks for that, will take a look this afternoon/evening!
  7. H Alan, I have done a bit of youtube stalking :-) In fact, it was your extrude symbol along path that made me think about it in the first place. Thanks
  8. Hi guys, Wondering if anyone out there can help me try to figure out how to duplicate symbol(s) along a path using Marionettes? Self-admittedly relatively new to marionette, but have a programming background (never tried VectorScript, mostly due to no available time). I see there is a Operations-->Duplicate node however no Duplicate-along-path node. What I am trying to achieve is something akin to the Railing/Fence tool in Landmark, but with an ability to space balustrade symbols we have already created along the path (and hopefully in future iterations draw in posts and rails too). The purpose of this is to save my designers time having to 3D the missing rails and posts while still being able to count the number of balustrade symbols in a worksheet for quantifying. Currently, the tutorials I have viewed seem to be that the network runs and then you adjust variables to suit (e.g. polyline co-ordinates), rather than being able to free draw a polyline and have the network use the polyline as the basis of the duplicate-along-path (i'm sure my inexperience and impatience is going to land me in hot water with some of you!), again akin to the Railing/Fence tool Would love to then extend this functionality into drawing retaining walls in, specifying the correct(ish) height, and quantify the required length of retaining boards (and hopefully posts too) by classifying the extrudes and dividing the volume by the respective cross-sectional areas. Any and all help appreciated
