  1. Sorry, I thought IsFlipped is a parameter of the door. I don't think you recreate the formula 1 to 1 in the Data Tag. However, the syntax for conditions is "<ExprIfTrue>@"<Condition> : <ExprIfFalse>". Hope this can help somehow. As for the doors: I'm not really familiar with them and can't help there.
  2. Since VW26 the Data Tag also has a conditional expression. If that is all you use in the worksheet it should be possible to do it in the Data Tag. What exactly is your worksheet formula?
  3. VE is short for Vectorworks Enhancement. What you want couldn't really be classiffied as a bug so an enhancement request is the best fit.
  4. Data Tags use a different system for formulas from worksheets. Try using "#AREA# / 1sq ft * 0.5". You should use the unit in which you'd display the area (the document unit as it is written here or the unit you've selected from the unit popup) and keep the 1 and the unit mark without a space between them.
  5. Your workaround looks good but sadly you have to ungroup the roof. I'll see what I can do when I have enough time away from other tasks.
  6. Write the formula as "#AREA# * 0.5" or "#AREA# / 2".
  7. Currently, there is no way to do that. Please submit a bug or an enhancement request.
  8. Yes, it is possible. The formula for the example you've given would be "#Door#.#ROWidth# / 100 M". However, you can also change the units in which the result is shown, as I suspect that is what you want. The pop-ups are below the "Parameter Name" pop-up and the formula would be "#Door#.#ROWidth##m_0_1#".
  9. You can associate a Data Tag to the VP even outside of it if you use the second tool mode. And the general functions Nikolay mentioned can report the information. However, they wouldn't provide you with the correct data as they extract the data of the Data Tag's container which would be the sheet layer and not the VP. That's why they work inside the VP. Maybe a better solution would be to have a way to move the Drawing Label from outside the VP but you'd have to create a VE for the VP team for that.
  10. Hi, Dylan! Have you actually attached the record to an object and then tag it with the Data Tag? Also I hear there is a tutorial about how to setup the database connection but I don't know where it is. Maybe it will help if you manage to find it.
  11. You can try using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) when reinstalling the driver.
  12. Can you please create a VB for this and attach a file in which the issue is reproducible?
  13. Can you create a VE for the secondary units? I can look into adding them to the units popup at some point.
  14. This was intended to work like that. Initially we decided to disable the reshaping of the Section-Elevation Lines which are in the "Elevation" configuration. We now see that was an oversight and this has already been changed for SP2. If you have access to the betas you can try it in Beta 3.
