  1. Is there any way to get the Place Plant dialog box to display latin or common names instead of the codes? It gets hard to remember what each code means when selecting a plant to place.

    tag length

    Thanks so much. They said it couldn't be done, but it worked. Now if there was only a way to eliminate the '4.00 BKO' decimal problem on these labels....

    When will that be available for online download?

    tag length

    I'm talking about the plants tags that automatically generate using the plant placement tool. I think the proper name of the line part is the 'shoulder.' I can see that when using the ID tool you can change the shoulder length. Is there a way to do it with the other kind?
  5. Yes, I selected 'syles enabled' when I created the plant. If I select a plant style fot the group, such as light sketch, I can get it to display more or less correctly. The only problem is that the first plant in the cluster is darker without the white outline, then the rest have the white outline + the applied style. It doesn't look too bad but I would like to do better....

    tag length

    When the ID tags are displayed, the lines undere them are much longer than the tags themselves. If the tag is '6.00 IDE' for instance, which may take 4' in scale (1/2") the horizontal line under it on the leader line is something like 10' (1"+) in scale, much more than is needed. This makes getting tags into tight places difficult. I can't seem to change this with the polygon edit tool, just its placement. Is there a way to change the segment length?
  7. I defined a plant, went back to the place plant tool, chose 'at polygon corners' and made a shape. The corners made the symbols slightly overlap, which is fine, but only the first plant placed has a black outline and the others are all white. What's going on? I want all to have a black outline....
  8. (I don't work for kinkos) For all of you that wish more plotting services handled VW documents or don't want to invest in your own printer, Kinkos has a file-prep tool that I just used called KFP that can be downloaded on their site (www.kinkos.com) on the front page(lower-right corner). Not only can you print any document (be sure to select paper size in print setup!) including color, but the files are smaller than whole VW files. After installing, choose 'print' in VW, setup the print options, view the preview image and choose 'save.' The file can then be e-mailed to your local Kinkos using KinkoNet from the kinkos.com page. There is no need for them to have the VW viewer.
  9. It would be great if there was a way to compress a file and e-mail it from within the VW program. It would need to be a format that was readable by the viewer and the main program. AutoCAD has a feature like this....
  10. Is there a way to toggle off/on ALL constraints at once? It's a real pain to turn them all off and all on again individually as I like to keep several on at once, then switch to none of them.
  11. In Renderworks, many textures do not have the images that created them included in the resource. That means that they can never be used on 2D objects. Seems easy enough to include the images.....

    I don't have Architect. Some of the texture resources do have images; most do not. It seems easy enough to include the images used to make the textures in an update. I am going to post this to suggestions.
  13. I was curious about your question so I did a search for 'exporting autocad' in the forum's search area. There was alot of good in the 'General Discussion' area. One post called 'Exporting for AutoCAD use' seemed particularly good for export setting info.

    Where is that located? What would be great is images like those in the stone textures. Is there any way to use them in 2D?
  15. Are there any 'random' slate patterns/symbols etc. included in the VW10 Landmark package? If not, any tips on creating objects that interlock?
