  1. Great update! For us materials are very important and it will be very welcomed if we can get fill by materials. We've built our workflow around materials together with data visualisations controlling fill in sections viewports + materials textures in 3D views/viewports.
  2. Hello @Jesse Cogswell, Great thanks for all your amazing work you freely share with community. All these wonderful tools cant be for free. Please send me DM message with your paypal acount ;-) Anyway, one question regarding Replace Name Text plugin is Error Message I get. Any idea what might be the issue? It works fine in blank file, not in any other based on my template file with many folders with resources.... Thanks.
  3. Another tip that might be useful in insertion of multiple rows/columns in one step that is different to what @Pat Stanford suggested... Lets say you want to add 5 new rows in one step so to do this you select 5 existing rows and hit 'insert rows' Same applies to columns.
  4. Thanks @Tom W. for you suggestion. Your solution is closest to desired result. Ideally i wish i could achieve this using one wall and only one symbol... Recently I really enjoyed watching video focused on wall closures for custom symbols presented by @Matt Panzer https://university.vectorworks.net/mod/overview/view.php?id=3027
  5. Hello, This is resources/file structure we have developed in office to collect employees (users) working hours for office projects. It is working fine unless we edit record format bind to symbol...after that all already picked values in symbols in users files get all reset to default values... Any idea why might this happen? is it bug? We use record format as a source for project names, project stage, employee name etc, mainly pop-up types. Symbol with text fields linked to record format: Record format with all sorts of data: Much appreciated any help.
  6. Hi, I am looking to find way to set up correct wall closure for custom opening. It is wall opening with stepped edges and am using symbol to cut it out. At the moment finish components of wall style stop where edge is stepped and will not wrap around to the desired place...tried different wall hole and wall closure components for symbol but no success so far... Here is case: view from one side (purple - finish component, gray - core, green - finish component) view from other side This is current state: and this is objective: Is it achievable using one wall style combined with custom symbol with wall hole and wall closure component? Would like to hear your suggestions. Thanks.
  7. try keep your newly created format with default name: Format-1 or so... I just tested it and it worked for me
  8. We prefer to have U-value as a 'Display' for Energos under Units settings. Vectorworks after each program restart revert to R-Value. Will this be fixed for SP3?
  9. Hello, I am experiencing same behaviour for few months already... My workaround is to create new record format (sometimes one, sometimes two...) and then material can pick up new ones allowing to eventually access those formerly intended. HTH.
  10. SITE MODEL criteria: type is 'Site Model' report: ='DTM6'.'Cut Volume' ='DTM6'.'Fill Volume' ... SITE MODIFIER criteria. type is 'Site Modifier' report: ='Site Modifiers'.'Volume (Existing)' ='Site Modifiers'.'Volume (Proposed)' ='Site Modifiers'.'Cut Volume' ='Site Modifiers'.'Fill Volume' ... HTH
  11. What is '3D Conversion Resolution' setting of your section viewports? Under Advanced Section Properties...
  12. Have you tried 'quick search'? You can browse through worksheets in opened files as well...does it help somehow in your situation?
  13. @Matt Panzer is this still relevant information after SP2 update? Shall we continue to control 'wall closure' instance by instance and not control it globally through using plugin options in RM...?
  14. My typical drawing window uses only floating pallets. Snapping options dialogues are all hidden behind floating palletes...see screenshot. Other similar dialogues from attributes pallet (like for local mapping )are OK. It is only ones connected to snapping options. I have recreated user folder by moving out initial one and let program to create new one but with no success. I have even completely reinstall vectorworks but display issue persist. I wonder if other users are experiencing this issue as I havent seen any posts on forum regarding this. I see this issue since first version of 2022 realease.
  15. Thanks @Peter Neufeld. and @Tom W. for looking into this. As you pointed out Tom and I agree I would too normally go with 'Trim' conditions so I guess for calculation purposes I need to switch to overlap mode and update worksheet with symbol criteria. I have to play with it bit more to see how satisfactory are results in overlap mode + if they are OK to send to contractor with other take-offs from building model. Speaking of surface array i suppose there is no other tool (except marionette that i haven't learned yet) in vw that can generate object repetition patterns and can be in reasonable time edited/modified... i am thinking about battens under roof tiles or facade cladding tiles... With virtual models of building getting more and more detail I wish I could have covered all main materials and objects and provide comprehensive scheduling report to client and contractor. I am working on it for last few months, battens under roof tiles are part of it
  16. Hello all, Am evaluating option to use surface array tool to create facade cladding or pitched roof tiles....but wondering if there is easy way to report of how many of array items (symbols) are present? Seem that it turns symbols into solid intersections... Thanks in advance for advice.
  17. Thanks @Tom W. for testing. After some more testing I can indeed attach record but only newly created. All existing records are invisible. After I attach new Record I am able to scroll through all the existing Records and pick one I need...so at least there is workaround for now..
  18. Hello, Can anybody confirm that attaching record format to material is not working in vw 2022. I have many record formats present in a file but I always get this message: Tested in multiple files but same issue....
  19. I definitely don't see this issue in SP1 only in SP1.1. If I recall correctly I experienced similar behaviour since initial release of VW 2022 but only happening on external or internal component of wall. Rejoining wall seemed to fix this issue.
  20. Thanks @Matt Panzer for quick response. I have sent you whole file and also new file with relevant walls. Thanks for looking into this issue. I am not aware of any symbol in file that has wall hole component.
  21. Hi all, Anybody having serious difficulty to get under control wall wrappings. Please see issue in attached screenshots. What i can see it is triggered when two walls with different style are joined/rejoined or when window/door in wall gets wall closure. It was working fine in VW 2022 SP0 not sure about SP1, but definitely not in SP1.1... Am using wall closure on wall style level and then individually activated on each instance of window/door through Plug-in Objects Options... I am wondering if it has something to do with addition (since SP1) of custom symbols wall closure...? I use custom symbol for sill and I have turned off 'insert in walls' option but with no desired effect. There are no other symbols in walls only feature in wall that cut out portion of wall underneath each door... @Matt Panzer Do you have maybe some idea what might cause this behavior and how to fix it? Thanks for all your help.
  22. @Eric Mousse thanks for question. I am having same issues since SP0. No way to edit windows/doors style. Will try now number separators suggestion.
  23. Hi while it is possible for some objects with components (slab, wall, roof) to control their materials section fills attribute through data visualizations we can not do it with components in slabs with aligned surface (hardscape type) and new site model components which is strange...see attached screenshot with aligned slab not taking light gray solid fill from data visualizations. I dont write this post in wishlist section as this appear to me as an item that needs to be corrected ... as it is possible to control these components with materials applied using class function or other value but not by material value so only way to achieve same graphic appearance now in section viewports is to have multiple visualizations selected. Please make this process consistent throughout all components with materials. --- Another issue with mentioned objects (aligned hardscape + site model) is that it will not display 'profile line' set in 'advanced properties' in section viewports Can we have a fix for these issues?
  24. Another data tag related question today: I have already placed in annotation space few data tags of same style with one user-defined text field in it. Whenever I do some changes to that data tag style, data tags present in drawing are reset to default value...bug maybe?
