    Worksheet Lumber Counts

    This is great thank you! I figured it out, however the total length is slightly off but only by a fraction of an inch. The formula to find total length of 1x4 is =(Perim(C='Material-1x4'))/2 The formula to find total number of 4x8 sheets for 1/4" Ply is =(Area(C='Material-Ply 1/4'))/32 (32 being the area of a 4x8 sheet) Now I'm going to add my new classes and worksheet to my start file. Thanks all!

    Worksheet Lumber Counts

    I'm just getting into Worksheets, and I understand how to use it with symbols and finding their quantities. However, I would love to figure out how to get lumber material counts. Ideally, getting total lengths of lumber and total area of sheet goods, and then determining how many sticks/sheets are needed. I am having a tough time figuring out how to have the worksheet differentiate between 1x and ply - the only way I can think is to have different line types for each type of lumber and then put in different formulas based on the line types. Any ideas?

    Worksheet Lumber Counts

    Thanks for that idea, that's what I was thinking was the best idea. However when trying pulling the length/width info for the worksheet, there's no clear concise way to get the total length when the shapes are in different orientations. The only way I found was to just add up what made sense.

    Script Error for Title Block

    I don't seem to be having this issue anymore, but if I do then I will send the test file. Thank you!

    Script Error for Title Block

    I just edited the title block in my start file and it was working fine. I added it into an existing file to update the initial title block that I had. After a few operations, the title block/border began flashing and hiding. If I tried to click on it to edit, a script error message would pop up, shown below. Any ideas?
  6. I have gone from Architect to Spotlight and I am able to switch between the workspaces. I would like to be able to use the Pipe Fitting tool (only available in Architect) but it says that the plug in could not be selected and to check if it's in the plug ins folder. It is in the plug ins folder, but I still can't use it. Is there a way to transfer plug in items in that folder from one workspace to another? Or would that mean that I need architect again?
  7. Is there a command to be able to delete all annotations from all viewports on a page, or from all viewports selected? I tend to duplicate sheet layers but then have to go back and delete dimensions and callouts from each viewport one by one. It would be very helpful and a time saver to be able to do it all at once.
  8. @Marissa Farrell This is incredible, thank you!!
  9. I have always had issues with my basic and tool sets palettes going back to default positions. Every time I open up VW, it goes to default and I have to drag them to my desired positions. About every week or so I save palette positions just to see if it works, but it never does. This happens regardless of being on a single or double monitor setup. Pictures attached are before and after I drag the tool sets. How can I get this to work properly?

    Unable to Save Palette Positions

    I took a look, and everything is as it should be - thanks for the tip! Unfortunately it didn't do anything for my basic/tool sets & attributes palette. I'm thinking that maybe this might be fixed by going to 2019?
  11. I love having the automatic date stamp in my title block, but when using a smaller page size, it can't get any smaller and I end up not using it. I would like to be able to add a text style to it, or be able to change the font and size.
  12. Yes, I am using title block border and drawing stamp for the date. I can edit the font size larger than 8pt, but that's the smallest it will go. On my title block, most text is 6pt, so a date stamp at 8pt looks out of place.

    Unable to Save Palette Positions

    No I don't...it happens across all monitors and just on my laptop screen.
  14. In architect 2018 - I'll have more than one file open, and I'll zoom or do a command and it won't do anything in the open file, but it will happen in another project tab. I'll go into the other project tab and it will show the navigation of the original opened file. Everything gets flip flopped from classes/layers to commands. This happens every once in a while, but recently more often. My solution is just closing down the program and opening it up again and its back to normal.
