  1. Ah ha! That makes sense, now. I would've chased my tail a few more rounds without your help. Thanks, bgoff!
  2. I'm working with a plant symbol who's tick mark is not centered. I looked into other postings that reference editing this in "plant geometry," but that's not clear to me. I have tried locating the tick mark in the 2d/3d symbol, but it doesn't appear. Any input is appreciated.
  3. Yes, that's it! I think Pat touched on those settings in recent user group meeting, I just couldn't remember. Thanks to you both.
  4. I do use it with some frequency, the more I think about it. But yeah, sometimes I wouldn't mind having it off.
  5. I'm referring to the info that appears on the cursor while drafting (see attached). I guess I use it occasionally, but sometimes it's just one more item on a screen.... on technical drawing I think I'd leave it off if possible.
  6. The cursor datum could be turned off, correct? If so, please share how to do this.
  7. I've attached an image of this red symbol that's been appearing in recent days on my section makers. I don't think it's Landmark-specific, but that's what I'm working in today.
  8. A colleague solved this issue for me. There's a setting in the Object Info palette for "Detail Level." Some of the viewports on the project in question had this set to "Low" to help increase the speed of the viewport update. Adjusting this setting to "Medium" has resolved my problem... allowing me to draft styled walls on annotations where the component attributes read clearly.
  9. It's some "file" setting, maybe. Because I have a reference file from a client that has wall tags that can be mirrored while maintaining the proper text oreientation. I even tried copying and pasting those same symbols into my working file, and they're all wrong. Thanks though, Pat! And yes, the entire file just seems buggy.
  10. I believe I encountered this before, but don't remember the workaround. I created Floor Plan view wall tag symbols that include a digit in each. When I flip/rotate the symbol/wall tag, the numbers flip/rotate, when they need to remain in-place and upright. I did check that Adjust Flipped Text is on in Document Preferences and Viewport Advanced Properties.
  11. I was brought in on a project that has utilized the cross section viewport tool to establish the outline of the build and then drawn its components over this outline on the annotations. One prominent element of this move is to use styled walls vertically on the annotations; typical interior and exterior wall types. However, the components of the walls disappear in several 'but not all' annotations. This is also true of hatches used in a similar application. I've recreated this wall and hatch condition with no issues, but with there being multiple viewports and walls/hatches configured on multiple sheets already, I figured I'd ask if anyone's familiar with the problem... as I can't imagine recreating all these new viewports so that there's no issues with the wall components showing. For what it's worth, I've checked that all classes are on and such, but have not spent hours (yet) sorting this out. *Note my VWX program has been buggy since upgrading to 2020, but I'll start a new thread for discussion.
  12. All very helpful ideas! I'll try to implement some of these strategies and follow-up with feedback soon. Thanks again, everyone!
  13. Yesterday, all of a sudden anytime I enter a viewport a neon green square appears on the design layer seemingly the same size and location of the viewport's crop. Has anyone seen this happen or read about this in a previous thread? Note this is occurring across all files I've worked on since yesterday and I did not create these files.
