  1. Cant you do that with setting material's fill and texture attributes to use class style?
  2. Have you tried Tile's 'Settings' (Fit to Wall option) under 'Edit' tile resource?
  3. I have to add my experience. Same as @Tom Klaber here, initially was disappointed (maybe little shocked) with 2020 icons but I thought I will somehow adapt to new icons look... actually I never did and overtime I see how wrong it is. I am on the Mac and I use solely light theme as I find it less visually disturbing and lighter on eye even though new icons to me look more correct on dark theme. Please hire guys that are passionate about graphic and UI design. I dont want to be critical but I got a feeling that this side of software is not covered properly/not cared about... As I mentioned in other post about 2020 tool icons I really like quality of VW promotion videos, in my opinion taste for quality there is really high so quality is already there just bring it to software. In current state there is too much going on in one single icon. Some icons without proper spacing touching each other in top bar...Please get rid off all the gradients, outlines, shadings that make eye tired and dramatically simplify design. Looking at the screen all day long it doesn't help at all. I prefer to have drawing/model itself stand out and palettes with icons fading away as much as possible. I am convinced changing merely icon look (not necessary whole look of UI) surely is not resources demanding. I would be even OK to go to pre 2020 version. While I do care how things visually look I am definitely more concern about how tools function and work. That is highest priority. In ideal scenario it should go hand in hand. Looking forward to see correction and improvements in UI design part. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into development of vectorworks. Thanks for effort and good luck.

  6. Very useful suggestion @robincj. Very essential to see different energy related scenarios. I have just got demand from client for one of my building renovation project to make energy comparison study using energos/phpp for exactly same scenarios (existing, new v1, new v2). I haven't figured out how I am going to approach it. I might go ungrouping way even though it is destructive way of doing things and I cant have different calculations side by side (in one file). Please introduce versions! While ability to make comparison studies in energos would be really really welcome ... i have come across one rather small issue with multiple labels present within one energos setup. Every label always share same label settings and there is currently no way to change one to different result selection without affecting others. See my compiled custom phpp sheet (energos data in worksheet combined with multiple labels) for better understanding. Main label = overal energy demand, color bars = other results. While it is OK to have one label (main label for worksheet) with almost every data in label setting turn on, others (color bars in my case) needs only one chosen. Is that the way it should work at the moment or is it a bug? Thanks.
  7. Hi guys, I am closely following your conversation, hoping to get correct answer to hardscape texture issues too. 😉 Thanks @Michal Zarzecki for bringing in this subject and @jeff prince for great effort to help. I spent good chunk of time (some days if not weeek) early this year to figure out new hardscape object (new at least for VW Architect 2020) and learn sufficiently when and which variation of hardscape settings is suitable...with focus on correct texture mapping. Even though english is not my native language and this fact is causing me some difficulties in terms of terminology I've tried every combination possible to achieve correct texture (having same issues as you @Michal Zarzecki) mapping mainly on aligned slab types (and their modification) of hardscape. I am too using styles, so I was wishing to achieve results using styles and their components attributes controlled by classes. But no success et the end. Eventually for final presentation I ended up 'Unstyling' Slab styled hardscape objects which was quick fix for textures but far far from satisfying as I broke control of my components attributes using classes. Following bug fixes that occured in SP4, there were few for hardscape i have a hope that it is all fixed by now. File that I created and produce before SP and play with it little after upgrade unfortunately wasn't showing any correction. But maybe I have to recreate those hardscape objects in order to fully take effect of latest. That is my experience with other objects in vw, that it wont heal itself automatically. I will soon do another round of hardscaping lesson soon so I look forward to positive outcome. Will be happy to share new information with you. Good luck anyway, hope you can find answer soon.
  8. @Pat StanfordIs this still active procedure in order to clear watermark stamp? I have accidentally imported few hatches from watermarked file into my commercial files and now have unwanted two file watermarked. It is matter of few hatch resources that I have deleted from file but it will not take away watermark stamp...? Thanks.
  9. @gester you are right with default electric source. I did a simple test of disabling 'include heating system' for Heating and in Detailed Result tab I see Heating set to: Default Electrical. Thanks again, this was of great help for me.
  10. Hi @gester Thanks for your input. I am not sure I understand what you mean. What you mean by installation system? I cant find that in energos settings.. You mean 'include primary system'?
  11. Ok. Thanks for clarification. I have another question regarding Energos record. Looking at 'Energos Heating Direct Electric' I only have primary heating system to use direct electric heating energos record. Energos label show heating value of 3,00 kW. From where this number arrives? There are only few parameters to choose from and I dont see any values there...How this works?
  12. Thanks @Nikolay Zhelyazkov I dont think I understand fully your first suggestion...I cant see 'edit list...' option in main heating system categories. I only see this option in the list of specific systems... Is there a way to create my own custom category and build my own list of specific system types? Or am I constrained to only use default system categories? Second solution is working for me, but I would prefer the first approach.
  13. Hi community, In order to correctly set up my building heating system i need to add electrical heating as my primary system (floor electric heating) ...but there is no option for that. Hot water heating has electric system but not heating. Is this error?...or am I missing something? I see that in RM among energos records there is one record called 'energos heating direct electric'...can I somehow include it and add to my heating system. Will energos take effect after attaching this some object in drawing? Can somenone help me to solve this question. Maybe @Luka Stefanovicor @Nikolay Zhelyazkov might have answer. Thanks.
  14. @Pat Stanford any thought on this matter...? I have successfully created one worksheet with database criteria set to only one criteria: Visible Selection State > is selected. This make process much much simpler and I am free to name style as I wish. Of course I have to go through individual wall/slab/roof style to select them and then recalculate given worksheet...but this is definitely much easier workflow. Anyway, I would be curious to know what was your thought and solution how to simplify this process with one cell where I can define criteria style name. Thanks in advance.
  15. Thanks for sharing this very useful script. Would be possible to modify script to be able to select only one image or selected images instead of whole content of folder? Thanks.
  16. Thanks Pat. Your suggestion is something I was thinking of kind of...to have one place where I could control name of style and it will affect whole worksheet all database sections criteria. Please see attached my setup. Normally I dont need that much database sections (components), maybe 5 - 7max. But still I wanted to have few rows in case some style Primary focus is to provide list of components and their attributes (thickness, lambda, R-value...) and have overall thickness and U value. I have been following this forum for over year very closely but I havent come to other solution and approach than the one I am using.... I would greatly appreciate your help in simplifying process. database criteria.vwx
  17. Hello community, I wonder is there a way to rename multiple database row criteria (using same object style name) in same worksheet in one action? As you can see in attachment, I have a structure of wall (can be slab, roof..) with 10 components, but each component is directed to the same style name OP02. If i want to list all components for lets say different wall style with name OP03 I have to go to change it 10 times in database criteria...and thats tedious. Also I dont want to have preformatted worksheet for 10 - 20 different wall/slab/roof style in one building. So any thought or put it other way is there a better criteria approach for calling components with simpler criteria setup? Maybe script would do it? Thanks for help.
  18. Ok. 1. What type of object are you missing, is it slab, floor...or something else? 2. Have you checked visibility for 'Layers... and Classes...' for missing object (including components) in viewport settings? Hope this helps.
  19. set viewport to 'Top' view
  20. Hi @RichPiano Change view to ‘Top’ will display texture. Regarding slab: in Render tab of OIP under Mode you can choose from by object or by component. Try these settings.
  21. Talking about shown units, is it possible to tweak metric units (set in units)? Result in energos label (for area) is in format sq m, cu m instead of my preferred way m², m³ ... etc. My dimension units in document are set that way... I know it is very subtle change but I prefer to be consistent throughout project document. Thanks.
  22. Thank you @Pat Stanford and @Luka Stefanovic for your involvement. I am progressing... It looks to me as if U-value is taken into account only when it is actually automatically calculated from components lambda/thickness in style and not when U-value is set to override calculated value (my case)...? Thank you anyway for your great tips on mapping in data manager and also multiple visualizations at the same time. Looking forward to use it in near future.
  23. Yes it does, I had objects on excluded layers. Now they are in. So you say that no matter what tick mark under 'use' is it will not take into account...and it will still be included?
  24. Ok. Thanks a lot! Great to hear that there is a solution. ...and I see that it will not show up in building elements list. I am slowly moving into record format realm that so far was neglected from my side. I see great potential for many things in my production.
  25. Hi @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Thanks for response. I was bit unclear with description of my situation. What you see on attachment is two holes in slab done using circular shape modifier and peace of extruded circles with glass textures. There are actually no 3D symbol inserted into slab. So my question is how vw deal with these holes in roof in terms of correct Energos calculation...Arent they just holes and energos numbers gets There are not connected (I wonder if there is possibility to connect to) with two custom skylight object that i have added through budilding elements > new dialog in energos settings...? Ideally I wold like to map these physical object with U-values and include them into calculation...but I dont think these is possible.... Thanks.
