    I did this and it gave me a label for every plant. Not what I want.

    Hi all. I want to do a clipped hedge look using Duranta Ahenas Gold. How do I go about placing a square plant symbol around a curve. Here is my very dodgy attempt. Only thing I can think of is doing them individually. Rotating each one. Then only taging one plant and somehow change the quantity to the # of plants shown in the tag. Cheers (again)
  4. Thanks Bob. That worked. Much appreciated.
  5. I have added a new plant to my list, However the symbol doesn't appear as shown in the plant settings as shown below. Any Ideas please?
  6. Thanks Pat. I had it on Show Snap others. Cheers
  7. Hi all. I have placed a pergola image from the resource manager onto the plan and I cannot select it. I am on the correct design layer. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance. Cheers Bernard
  8. Thanks Andy. Much appreciated. I probably would have found this if i had more experience. Cheers
  9. Hi Again. Sorry for the beginners questions. I have rotated a reference mark. However the text has rotated also. How do I get the text to stay upright? Cheers
  10. Sorry. I don't fully understand what you and MarkDD have said to do.
  11. I chose to trace the internal line of the wall. Offset it by 250mm, then offset it by 500mm the other way. Then drew a line to join these at either end, Compose them, then converted to polygon. I was hoping that there would be a quicker way. Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply. Cheers
  12. Thanks Guys I appreciate your replies. I decomposed one of the polygons. See first Pic. When I try to select the curved line, it just selects a small section. See second Pic. It always does this. So where to from here? Draw a new polyline over the old and offset it?
  13. I Have drawn some retaining walls as polygons. The client has changed their mind from rock clad, block walls to random rock walls. I want to increase the wall thickness from 250mm to 500mm. How would I do this? I have tried the offset tool. However it offsets it in both directions. Kind of works. However I then have to reshape one side back. I haven't used the wall tool yet. Still learning. Thanks.
  14. Thanks Kevin. Appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. I hadn't installed the add on. Doing it now. Cheers
  15. Hi. When I draw an object, say a rectangle or a line, I tab into the Object Info window next to it to type in the dimensions. After a while it stops working. When I tab into it it highlights the figure to be changed, however I cannot type over it. It stays the same. Only way I can change it is to finish the object and use the 'Object Info' pallet. Any suggestions please. Cheers
