    Plant Component details disappear

    Hi all. I have 1 plant symbol that keeps losing its components when I open the file up. I have checked all the component classes are correct, etc. I keep copy and pasting it from a backup file but beeps reverting back to the outline when opening the file again. Any ideas.

    Plant Tool Help

    Hi all. Is there a simple way of adding plants to a group of plants already placed using the poly-vertex placement mode? Thanks in advance.

    Drawing stepped retaining walls in 3D

    Thanks zoomer. I'm relatively new to VW. So I'll have to read through your reply a few times to understand it all.
  5. Can anyone point me to a video that explains how to draw retaining walls stepping up a sloping site with returns that taper up from the base. Similar to the attached plan.

    plant and landscape feature image library

    Thanks Mike. Great idea. Why a Workgroup Folder?
  7. Hi brainstrust. I am newish to VW. I am placing images of the plants and landscape features, such as furniture, retaining wall materials, etc, onto my drawings. See below. What is the best way to keep a library of these so that you can search them by name and paste them onto the drawing?

    VAA Title Block question

    I have been watching some videos about title blocks. They are talking about the new Title Block Border tool. I don't have this. Strange that I would have the Title Block manager Tool which only works on TB Borders?? I assume it is because I don't have Design - I have a custom title block that I want to edit. However I cannot find how to save it once it is edited. It keeps coming back onto the page in the original format. Any advice please. Thanks.

    Database setup

    Hi all. Does anyone use a database for their landscape objects that they regularly use? I am thinking of doing this. But I can only find an old video from 2009. Is there a more current one? I want to set it up so that I can have garden edging, different types of retaining walls, stepping stones, etc with a simple callout, say RW1, RW2, GE1, etc, that link to a note on the page stating what they all are. Save me doing it manually. Any help appreciated thanks.

    2D to 3D

    Thanks Guys. 3D here I come! Another steep learning curve for an old fart. Agree with the classes. I now have everything in a class. Much easier.

    2D to 3D

    I am about to start doing designs in 3D. I only to domestic at the moment. However I have just thought of something. When I am designing, I am constantly changing shapes of walls, gardens etc till I get the desired look. I also draw elevations and sections as I go. These help me understand the site and how they relate back to the plan view. Mainly in relation to junctions of retaining walls. Most of my sites seem to be steep, requiring a lot of walls. So instead of just modifying a polygon that is a wall, I will be modifying a 3D object that has RL's attached to it. I can see this becoming a problem. Or not? Should I design it in 2D till I am happy with the finished product then do it in 3D? Or will it be just as easy to modify things as I go in 3D? Cheers.
  15. I have a lot of top view plant graphics I have just downloaded and need to know the best way to import them into VW please. They are currently in a zip file.
