  1. @ericjhberg Thank you !. Yeah, that's going to be a big headache then..as a planting design focused office we are so excited to see this database being used in projects. We have been trying to add maintenance notes for some common plants we use in design, and hoping when we accumulate enough data one day the planting schedule we can pull out a column for maintenance notes. But if we cannot editing the plant database at the same time it simply means the efficiency of adding the notes will be decreased. Hopefully newer versions can be improved! In saying that, do you know can I copy my database to another station? Because my plant database have a lot more notes than the other one. If can, at least both work station can have similar plant database to work with...
  2. Yes, I mean we didn't do it at the same time. One person right click the figure, edit style, then get plant data, then the plant database can be accessible. Then if this person leave the plantdata base open, the second person try to do the same thing then the error message will come out. Does that mean the first person who opened the planting database needs to close it first?
  3. This is under the vectorworks plant database folder. In the scenario when the second person trying to open the Vectorworks Plants.exe is not there (sorry I got the name wrong in my last thread)
  4. @bgoff The only difference I spot is, if the second person try to open (while the first one has opened the database), the file Plant Database.exe is missing under the Vectorworks Plant folder...The picture I have attached showed the office setting
  5. Thanks Bgoff, yes it's been working for a while (about three months) for other files. We share customised planting schedule, hardscape schedule and hatch. Also we have exported some commone plant symbols shared between two stations. We just didn't figure out how to share plant database until this week. What do you think could be the problem?
  6. Hi All, I recently set up the plantdatabase in our workgroup folder for our small office (two workstation). I clicked Landmark-Choose database place and located the workgroup folder. The problem now is, our two workstation cannot open the plantdatabase at the same time... If one opens, the second one will meet an error message. I have attached an image. Is this normal? Or did we do something wrong?
  7. @Boh Thank you! That worked out! Yes I am on 2019, looks like I have to make sure in leader attributes the line needs to be solid. I thought the class attributes overwrites.

  9. Hi all, I'm having a problem with my callout tool...It's first time I met this problem and I haven't figure out what's happened. Let me know if you have any advice. Basically every time I do callout, the leaderline is incomplete...the first segment with the arrow is not there. There's only one line coming out from the text box. I tried to change the setting , switched off the file the reopen, or even copy other callout box from other files but none of them worked out. It must be some sort of setting problem. I have attached two images. Any ideas ?
  10. I just figure out this issue...I 'll put the answer here hopefully it's helpful for others : To fill out an area with paving in specific size, the best way is to create your own through hardscape joint pattern setting, instead of trying to adjust pre-made hatch pattern in the library. I found the following page is really helpful. Now I can hatch area with customised pavers. http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2017/eng/VW2017_Guide/SiteModel2/Setting_Hardscape_Pattern_Options.htm A great program.
  11. Hi all, I have created a lighting schedule for landscape lighting design. I'm using Vectorworks Landmark. I would like to add a column in the schedule so I can type in products specs. It can be quite different in each project so I prefer to leave a column in my pre-made schedule instead of filling in prescribed specs. However, I found the column is automatically linked to data and I cannot type in anything ... Are there anyway to remove that sort of link just for that column? I noticed the little triangle at the start of the column controls the setting but I haven't figure out where to remove this type of link. Anyone had experience?
  12. @Boh Thank you! I just checked that's the problem indeed! I didn't expect the imported figure is on a new class created on its own and default as not visible...
  13. Hi all, I have downloaded some 2D plant elevation figures (dwg format), and I make individual one as symbol and exported. I want to use them in my elevation drawing. However, even though all the figures are showing properly in resource management, when I place them in my elevation drawing there's nothing showing. I had similar problem with symbols that I created and exported. Are there any way to solve this problem? I have attached an image to show what's like in resource management. The blue dot show where I import the tree figure (but nothing shows up...) Also, I can only find 2D plants elevation in photorealistic or artistic version. I would like to see if there are some 2D geometric based plant figures that ready to use. Any advice would be helpful! Thanks
  14. Hi everyone, I'm currently trying to hatch with paving pattern. I'm having trouble to understand how does the following window works exactly... Say if I want to use this paving pattern but the size of the paver is 900mm x 400mm, how can I achieve this? The default is 1000mm x 500mm. I was trying to adjust the 'I' and 'J' but couldn't figure out...
