  1. Hi guys, I've created a custom formatted worksheet for our plant schedules that is just in a .vwx file on my desktop. I want everyone in my office to be able to have access to it via ourVW Workgroup. Is there a way for me to export just the worksheet into the Workgroup or do I maybe have to save the file it's in as a .sta template and access the worksheet in the Resource Manager form there? Any help is appreciated 🙂 Thanks!
  2. Bumping this post - has this been added in 2019 yet? I'm trying to turn off the visibility of layers with the Visibility tool. I have 3 .dwg's directly imported into a .vwx file that is then viewported into another .vwx file. -Thanks

    B&W 2D Plant Symbols

    Hi there, I'm running VW Landmark 2019 and I'm wondering how you guys go about 2D planting plans? Working in the landscape architecture profession, our 2D plan sets are B&W and plants are generally easily distinguishable symbols. Using the Plant tool in Landmark, I am able to lay down certain plant species, but all of them are relatively artistic with colored fills. When I turn off the color fills, only the outer border remains and the plants are barely distinguishable (see attached photos). How do you all go about having distinguishable 2D plant symbols? Do you have to amend the pre-loaded Vectorworks ones? Thanks!

    I'm a new user trying to change the linewieght of my plant tags. I don't see the "Create Plug-In" command but I do see a "Plug-In Manager". Should I be going through here? I'm using VW 2019 Landmark.

    How to change the line thickness of plant tags ?

    Hey, I'm also trying to change the lineweight of my plant tags and I've been searching the forums. Has anything changed for VW 2019, how would I go about this now?

    Multiple Users on 1 Project- How do you do it?

    New to vectorworks and searching around on the forums for how people go about this - has anyone found a better way for multiple users to work on a project yet?

    Dimensioning Standards

    Hi guys, I'm working on a standard dimension for my office, let's call it SW_DIM_STD. I have created it and it now exists within my three template files that our office work will use. Is there a way that the custom dimension style can live within the office workgroup, not just each individual template? The way that I see it, if the dimension style is updated within one file, it will not update across all files. Although it is great to have the ability to have custom dimension styles in each drawing file, is there a way to update SW_DIM_STD without manually doing so in each template file?

    Scale patterns

    New to VW and trying to learn about tiles - how do you go about changing the scale of a tile? I don't see it when I click around through the usual dialogue boxes.

    Scaling Hatches

    Scaling Hatches

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong here but I found that hatch in the resources manager, right clicked on it, any only got these options - no "Edit Hatch" option. (See attached picture) Also, would this change the scale of the hatch in every occurrence or just a single occurrence?

    Scaling Hatches

    Here is a polygon that I filled with a concrete hatch. Do I update the Page/World setting in the "Hatch Settings" box or is "Edit Hatch dialog" something different? I'm also not sure what a "radial menu" is. See attached screenshot.

    Scaling Hatches

    Hi guys, I'm a new VW Landmark 2019 user running a Windows 10 computer. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to scale hatches in VW like I could in CAD or SketchUp. The sand and earth hatches are way too big on my details and I need them to scale down. Thanks!

    How to change dimension settings?

    So can I save a Dimstyle to my office Workgroup? Or do I have to save the dimstyle within a certain .vwx file, then import that Dimstyle from that .vwx file into my current working file?
