  1. @Pat Stanford I've been hoping to tackle formulas in worksheets, can you point to any video resources, the lists of possible formulas are difficult to learn from?
  2. @spries Pat is correct. Even though it is frustrating at times, what you're after is possible. You need to add data fields to an existing record applied to the objects, or create a new record and add it to the elements you're querying. The database row criteria only specifies the objects in the file it is looking for. You can create a data column from any record field those items have attached. Each column can only reference one record field, but you can have empty rows if the data is not applicable (you can't mix record fields in the same column). It's easy to create a note record that is blank, once it's attached to the objects and referenced in the worksheet column, you can fill it in directly from the worksheet.
  3. I can't seem to click to select my design layer reference viewports. Only way I'm able to select them is to drag a bot to entirely cover them, or use the vieport manager? Is anybody else experiencing this?
  4. It would be great to have the ability to reference data fields in regular text boxes and callout objects
  5. Sorry, missed your comment, here's as smooth as I was able to make it... better, but still jaggy in places, part of the change was rounding all my vertexes... It seemed to smooth out most around .04" smaller didn't seem to make much difference. Linetype, grading.vwx
  6. Here's my latest attempt this could be useful... if only! I'm trying to make a working linetype for contour grading but still doesn't generate well. each small segment in this line is .12" long, still not well generated around a curve. even tried less than .01" segments with no luck.
  7. I've had this appear about as often as not. When attempting to grade across an object, random elements from the existing grade seem to override modifiers? I've tried to create 3D polys between the contours but these just regenerate around anything I try to do to "fix" them. Red are my site modifiers, generally going well...
  8. I haven't had any issues just dragging and dropping PDFs, VW will pop-up a window with a few options...
  9. I have a similar problem tagging the proper plant.
  10. Usually if this is a concern, we simply export raster .PDFs rather than vector. Of course that won't prevent OCR, but if somebody can read it they can retype it...
  11. @P Retondo The render transparent option is for a viewport (I'm most familiar with sheet viewports?), but it will eliminate items like the 3D chairs showing through the table. (t leaves the fills in place)... I got the impression that is what you were after. Are you working in Sheet Viewports?
  12. Does unchecking "Render Gray Layers Transparent" help Viewport>Advanced Properties? I've also thought about submitting a wishlist item to at least 1 alternative fill/line to a class, very often I find i'm using the same override in a couple of viewports, or I want the typical CD black/white/gray with a predefined color option that could be easily toggled using layer overrides, without having to go in and manually override each class.
  13. @Katarina Ollikainen good approach. I find I'm using visualizations for more things recently. I hadn't thought about landscape areas, but I'll take a look.
  14. thanks for looking into it. It isn't critical, just something I was running into when moving back and forth with Bluebeam.
