    Plant tag alignment and rotated plans

    @rowbear97 I am having this same problem. It is very frustrating. absolutely nothing will allow me to create plant tags that aren't all wonky on my rotated plan. Can you point me to a tutorial for creating a custom data tag for plants? I'm not having any luck finding one.

    why did my model turn green?

    okay, this is possibly a bug of some sort. My guess is that a helios MUST have a color applied to it. So, when I create a class that has NO fill color, and add a helios to that class, the helios chooses the default fill color which is that cyan color. recreate with these steps: Select the helios put helios on a class that has no fill color. in the attribute palette choose fill 'Solid' it automatically fills with cyan color and the helios cone turns cyan and the light on the model turns greenish return fill in attribute palette to 'None' notice that the fill color of the cone and the light color remains cyan change fill color something else and the cone changes as well and the light color changes to that color as well return fill in attribute palette to 'None' notice that the fill color of the cone and the light color remains whatever color you chose. It may well be that a helios requires a fill color. if that is the case it is confusing that I am allowed to select 'None' as a fill in the attribute palette. thanks, all, for your help. Laura

    why did my model turn green?

    I did look and the class has no fill. BUT when I look at both heliodons in 3D view the arrows are filled in a cyan color... so maybe that has something to do with it? If I have only the one on the left active the coloring of model is fine.when I turn on the class for the second heliodon it turns green. I have tried making new heliodons, switching classes, put them on separate layers... I guess I can tell the client we turn the model green to help reduce distractions. ahahaha ūüėĄ If you have any other thoughts on why this might happen I would appreciate it! Thanks! Laura

    Not sure if this is a rendering problem or a lighting problem. I added a second heliodon and my model turned green... Anyone know why this might happen? Thanks!

    Residential landscape lighting objects?

    Okay, so there are no residential outdoor lighting options. Got it. I'll work on making my own. It just seems so weird that there aren't any options for such a crucial part of landscape design. I was hoping they were there and I just couldn't find them. I notice they have a bunch of streetlights suitable for commercial projects elsewhere. -Laura

    Residential landscape lighting objects?

    Hi, I would like to have 3D residential landscape lighting objects and attach my own data records to them. I was wondering if there are already some basic ones I can use. I found one bollard that looks usable in Resources/Vectorworks Libraries/Object-Building Services/Electrical/Click Lighting Outdoor Bollards.vwx But am looking for a basic path light, step light, up light, shroud/no shroud, etc. Anyone know where to find such a thing? Thanks! Laura

    Object info palette flashing / blinking

    Hi there, I'm using Landmark 2018 on a microsoft surface (sad face). I have to mess with a lot of plant symbols. Whenever I need to change something in the Object Info palette. the palette blinks three times per thing I have to change. so that's like 3 extra seconds, if not more, to change each thing for my plants. order of events: place some plant symbols highlight them in object info palette scroll to Polygon Display change it to something watch the darn thing blink three times repeat This is driving me absolutely nuts... any ideas what the problem is?
  9. I am having a very similar problem. Right in the middle of my work day on this file. everything on the design layers disappear unless I am zooming. very weird. I restarted, etc. The other weird thing is that even in top/plan view my background is green instead of beige. I must have done something to trigger this. But what?! Fortunately my backup file was fine...

    Workflow for creating wonky stairs?

    @jpccrodrigues Can walls touch each other? And would you create a wall by doing this: create rectangle/create object from shape/choose landscape wall or some other way? Thanks so much for your comments Laura

    Workflow for creating wonky stairs?

    @Jonathan Pickup Thanks Jonathan. I am in landmark but have never used the hardscape tool. So I think I will try doing it with pads. I suspect I am just a bit over my ability level with this project...

    Workflow for creating wonky stairs?

    Hi there, I have a site model and I need to create the existing stairs. The stairs are a bit wonky and I am having all kinds of trouble. I'm wondering how other people would approach creating these... I'm new to site modeling and so I am flailing a bit. Would you just create each stair as a pad? Lower left you can see the bit where the stairs are all weird. Thanks!
  13. Hi there. I am going through this tutorial: Adding Source Data with 2D Polygons or Polylines I have selected all my contour lines. I go to Landmark > Survey Input > 2D Polys to 3D Source Data when this dialog pops up the contour line that is automatically selected is one way up in the middle of the site instead of starting with the line I selected first. Additionally, if I hit 'Next', it then starts selecting all kinds of random lines that I did not even select! in the first place! If I delete everything but the contour lines it still selects a random contour line in the middle of the site and skips around whenever I hit the 'Next' button. my contour lines are all on the same layer, there are no other lines or polys on that layer. I wonder if anyone has any insight about this problem. thanks! test-contourlines-V2018.vwx

    Newbie modeling question about how to fill in model

    @michaelk thanks
  15. Hi, I'm going through the tutorials for site modeling and am trying to make a simple model. I want the model to be smooth and filled in the same way it looks in the 3D Preview area of the Site Model Settings dialog box. I am in VW2018 and on a PC I'm adding a pic of my model which is just all lines and the preview box where it shows an example of how I want it to look. thanks, Laura
