  1. What is '3D Conversion Resolution' setting of your section viewports? Under Advanced Section Properties...
  2. Have you tried 'quick search'? You can browse through worksheets in opened files as well...does it help somehow in your situation?
  3. @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...?
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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..
  8. 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....
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. @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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
  15. Hello, Do we have possibility to have bidirectional workflow when using data tags with worksheets? I want to edit data tag text field from within worksheet and I thought that we can do it using DATATAGFIELD('fieldname')...but content of the text field is locked in worksheet... Is there maybe other option to achieve this?
  16. Hi @line-weight i iust checked it and it works same way for styled objects. Unstyled you control trough context menu. It took me quite some time to understand and navigate through all these settings but really worthy... for instance class assignment is really big one ... great time saver with organization of objects.
  17. You can make it by style. You have to select your styled window/door in RM and then under 'Plug-in Object Options' set to settings you prefer: insertion location, offset, wall closure etc.
  18. OK. OK. I did some quick tests...but I suppose I have to really wait when changes happen (by SP2) to be able correctly test and see fully workflow that we will need to adapt by then...? After some tests would by nice to have control to see slab attribute hatch only on top component area. I mean I have slabs (for ground floor) with many components in them a they can stick out (edge offset) - outside of the building ...but i need that hatch only for interior area...hope this will be somehow addressed....or i will have to cover those parts with hardscapes and other landscpae objects... I see, it indeed does work, but I cant use data visualisations then which is quite essential to my workflow as this is sort of 'viewport styles' available at the moment, quickest way to graphically express results in different way
  19. Yes I am. You are right @Bruce Kieffer. After double checking it indeed recalculate only selected worksheet. I think I was initially confused by fact that 'recalculate' function takes much longer to update than 'update active worksheet' in worksheet menu.
  20. I would be very much interested in that one too. @Bruce Kieffer What I can see 'Recalculate' function update all worksheets not only selected one. And with many worksheet present in file it can take a while to update. Would really welcome quicker way to navigate to recalculate active worksheet function.
  21. Hi Matt, Thanks for coming back with warning in advance. I appreciate it. Does this mean that in initial realese - SP0 of VW 2022 it should still be working as is now...? So I will skip SP2 then...and by SP3 it should work again...? or should I adapt to other workflow down the road...? I am not quite sure I completely understand what you are saying... By applying hatch to slab style do you mean selecting hatch as a fill for 'slab attributes'...? so you mean regular hatch instead of surface hatch?...hatch in that set up will be disconnected from texture so I have to correct mapping of hatch to align with texture (of topmost component) in order to be consistent (when i present same part of building in textures and in hidden line so for example tiles looks same size in both viewports)... Well at the end whatever workflow it takes I wish i could precisely set up size and have perfectly aligned texture with hatch ... Will class attributes and overrides work in section viewports? So far I've had mixed experience with using class attributes and overrides in section viewports...but that may be caused by me not setting up something correctly....
  22. Ahh...I see something really obvious 🙂 Great! We have that covered now. Thank you a lot.
  23. Detailer tool would be welcomed addition too....at least what i can see from tutorial videos. It is only 2D but very useful to build up library of construction details.
  24. Hello, Is there any chance to report in worksheet database length of structural member. Simple column type member or straight horizontal member.... There is for structural m. property: 'lenght'... when added to worksheet it changes to: ='StructuralMember'.'CenterPointLength'...but doesnt report lenght value. I know we dont have lenght field in OIP for structural member ... but one would expect that such a basic property of member can be easily available and reportable. Or am I am missing something obvious? would welcome if there is at least some math calculation alternative to be able report lenght value in worksheet or data tag as well. Since introduction of material resource we abandoned framing member but we feel that this tool is not really fully developed... Thanks for any suggestions.
  25. Hello, Quick search (under F key) is great addition for latest version, you can quickly search for menus, tools even recently opened files and also worksheets present in active file...but it is only searching in those areas within active workspace...so it doesnt qo into all command/tools/menus unless they are present - visible in palettes/menus. Am I missing something really obvious? I cant think of any reason why it should work that way. Because if it does work like this than we cannot hide palletes (and have more working space) with tools and have it available and access through quick search... Thanks for any hints.
