  1. I am having this problem in 2021 - is anyone else? Edit: False alarm - I had "use colours" unticked in Open GL options, ticking this displayed the textures.
  2. @JBarch, as part of 2021, worksheets can be exported (and imported) as .xlsx files;
  3. I agree, would be great to have this functionality. Perhaps this is now much easier to implement with 2021's new excel import/export feature.
  4. Hi @Hugues, I don't have 8 decimal places set, could there be another cause? I'm not including the tabs in the prints no, I would rather not see these. Do you know the dimensions of these so that I can account for them in my margins?
  5. Thanks Nikolay. Out of interest I tried using the standard Issue History worksheet and using this. I see it's set up for a US Letter paper size. I changed this to A4 and the formatting goes completely wrong (pdf attached). Changing it back to US letter, it's still not correct. Is there a tutorial for setting up worksheets so that they're correctly sized on a given sheet of paper? It's very time consuming re-sizing columns and the numbers don't stay exactly as the values you enter (for example if you specify 16mm it's common to go back and see 15.97mm). Is it possible to set the print area like in spreadsheet and then have the desired area be scaled to fit? Title Block Project Issue History.pdf
  6. Thanks for your help on this. After a bit more playing around I realise that it's my error as I had set all the margins to 0. Now that i've restored these to a more sensible amount, particularly the bottom=25 the rows split correctly. On this, is there any reason why the margins give 8 decimal places? I do not need this level of precision! Also I found that if I put all the margins as equal amounts, the worksheet does not sit centred on the page, hence right and left have different values.
  7. Before I do, would the fact that it's a 2019 file converting into 2021 for testing have anything to do with it? Perhaps I would be better rebuilding the worksheet from scratch in 2021? I simply just open the worksheet from the resource manager, click 'file' (within the worksheet window rather than the programme window) > print > and then use the 'open as pdf in preview' option that's available in MacOS.
  8. Hi @Nikolay Zhelyazkov, I have been looking into 2021 and the print functions built directly into the worksheet window. I have been trying to do the same thing as above but am still getting issues where the page split ends up cutting rows - am I using it wrong? In between sheet 450 and 500 there is supposed to be sheet 455 - this has been cutoff completely!
  9. @JuanP, @Matt Panzer, @Tamsin Slatter, @Nikolay Zhelyazkov as regular VW posters on here (or at least ones known to me) are you able to give anymore information on this?
  10. I would also love for some VW employees to chime in here with what's planned for the tool, throughout the section of the talk I heard people were encouraged to take to the forum to chat in more detail with people from VW - it would be great to hear what's coming for these tools
  11. Agree, needs a fundamental re-write/re-engineer. I know they have to put a positive spin on things but the 'incremental updates' made me chuckle a little. Some things got a very definite 'it will be ready for the next version' and I was sad to hear this doesn't seem to be the case for the window, door and stair tool. Not to be crass but it reminds me of the phrase "you can't polish a turd" and it seems that these incremental improvements are getting close to that.

    I would also be interested in a good solution to this - data tag seems like a great tool at high-level but falls down in some specific uses such as this.
  13. For the first time in a project I am using the space object to display finishes, and then using a worksheet to report areas etc. as well as using the space object to display the room name, area and dimensions on other drawings. One problem i've come across is in bathrooms. The floor is tiled and it's easy to report the total floor area of the room. This would not happen in practice however as one wouldn't tile under a bath or shower tray for instance. Is there a way to modify the finish area of the space object only so that only the true finish area is reported or would this require a separate space object to be made to report this?
  14. Hi @Tolu, thanks for the info. We were using project sharing with a direct connection to the NAS but have now switched to dropbox. I think our issues were to do with 2 things: - no VPN connection - slow internet speeds Everyone's home internet obviously varies quite a lot but I know for myself at the beginning of lockdown it was about 15Mb/s. Are there speeds you would recommend or recommend nothing less than X Mb/s for example? What is a fast internet speed relative to file size, perhaps you could give an example as a ratio? Finally to be clear, is working via dropbox better than working with PSS? Or will the performance and stability be roughly equal on both?
