  1. How do I set the defaults for a Hang Position? When I select some truss objects and convert to hanging positions I would like to popup to already assume "Create a dingle hanging position from all selected objects." I would also like to set the "Show Name" Boolean to false as the default value in the OIP. Thank you, Maxwell
  2. Hi Everyone, How can I set the Viewport and Section default settings so I don't have to click every button each time I create a viewport. Thank you, Maxwell
  3. Hi Everyone, I am looking at the new Viewport Label Style and want to add a field that shows the viewport's view. So if I the viewport is in a front view it will display "Front" and if I change it to a top view it will say "Top". This would work exactly like the scale. Thanks Maxwell
  4. I draft with the layer color setting toggled on in my design layers, but when I switch to my sheet layers I want the setting to automatically turn off so the lines are true colors. Then when I go back into a design layer it toggles back to my last setting, in this case it would be to layer colors turned on. Exactly how AutoCAD does it.
  5. Much appreciated, as always. Thanks for your help. Best, Maxwell
  6. I currently use a script to accomplish this, but that workaround is a bit cumbersome when going back and forth between different design and sheet layer saved views. I also use the Quick Preference, but if I forget to turn Layer Colors off BEFORE going into a sheet layer, sometimes my title block or other lines will get stuck in their color and then publishing gets all messed up. I figured if Vectorworks just handled this on it's own it would smooth the whole process.

  8. I will look into that. I have a large site plan in this drawing on a layer that is turned off. Could that be affecting it? Does it matter that a layer or class is off, but still in the document?
  9. This happens even before I do any annotations. I create a viewport and it shows up this large. If I draw a box around the design layer view and turn that into a viewport it creates a cropped viewport and it works fine. I was trying to avoid that by just creating a viewport of the saved view I am looking at in the design layer and this is the outcome.
  10. Does anyone know why the bounding box of my viewports are so big? If I crop them they become the size of the crop and look normal, but it looks like if I keep them uncropped they are the full size of the design layer regardless of the layers and classes being turned off. Please see attached screenshot for reference.
  11. Hi! I am trying to set the default "Show beam at" parameter in a lighting device to "Falloff Point" and when I go into Spotlight Preferences, the attribute default pop-up is blank and there are no options to set the default when I click the dropdown arrow. Any thoughts on why that is and how I can set the default parameter? I attached a screenshot for reference. Thank you, Maxwell
  12. Thanks, Sam. I am looking into your plugin. I remember having it in college, but don't have it anymore. Out of curiosity, do you have a comprehensive list of the commands your plugin operates? I am curious what "Beam Console" is to start off. Thanks, Maxwell
  13. Is there a way to quickly turn on and off the "Draw Beam" option in the OIP for a lighting device? I would like to quickly toggle all the fixtures on and off without having to select them all each time. Thank you, Maxwell
