  1. Another way to approach this is to use data tags for the viewport where you need the larger scale, The tags will only be present in the viewport annotations and won't affect the label legend scale in another viewpüort or in design layers.
  2. Its odd that the export works when set to mm but not m, the export process converts all dimensions to mm. I'll get a bug report opened and bring it to the dev teams attention
  3. @ReMatsu Can you DM me the VWX file and the MVR created in 2024? Also are you on a windows or apple computer?
  4. Viewport., VGM and Site model caching can be turned off in the dcoument settings and the VectorCaching toggle can be found in the Vectorworks preferences.
  5. This webinar by @markdd does a brilliant job of explaining the workflow to use schematic views for custom positions
  6. Here's an excellent webinar from @markdd about how to use schematic views effectively
  7. @AStein Change the consumer components in the distro for output components and add the consumers into the hoist symbol. What connector did you add to the cable connector xml? As I don't have it at my end it seems to have defaulted back to camlock connectors for all the components
  8. At the moment the only 2 options that I'm aware of are to insert a point load (combined drop pipe and lamp weight) for calculation puposes add the drop pipe to the light as a lighting device accessory. You'll need to set the drop pipe symbol up correctly as lighting device accessory andset it as a base acessory (same as a clamp)
  9. @Alan.AHA what are your system specs and operating system version?
  10. @AStein For the cables to be able to document what hoist they are connected with you need to add a consumer electrical component. once this is done the cable will display in its 'End' field the name of the connected hoist.
  11. The easiest way is to set a class text style for the class that you insert the bridle object into. That way it will be drawn with the correct text style at creation. A second option is to use the text style dropdown in the bridle object properties after creation to change it (group select all the bridles together)
  12. @RMDiekmann Thank you for bringing this to my attention I've tested it and you're correct only the single connection mode of the cable tool is correctly connecting the cables. All three other modes are drawing the cables but not connecting them correctly at the start or end. The other options for drawing cables are still working correctly (patch by command and using the dropdowns) I've opened a bug report
  13. @Stefan B. It should be fixed in update 2 that is just about to be released, along with a number of other cablle related issues
  14. @AStein This is some really useful feedback, I'll make sure that it gets to the right people. We are actively looking into how to address many of the these workflow related issues. Some like the hanging position obscuring the trusses inside are much harder to address than others and will need time to carefully plan. But the more info and feedback you and others can povide identifying specific pain points and problems the easier for our developers to understand what needs to be addressed and what our priorities need to be.
  15. did you apply the tag to the original light on the design layer or in the schematic view? Tags will maintain the original orientation based on the view they are first inserted in, so create the tag from the lighting device, then delete it in the design layer and reapply it using the data tag tool on the schematic light.
