    Leader line is partially missing in callout tool

    @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.

  3. 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 ?

    Hatch pattern local mapping setting problem

    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.
  5. 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?

    Plant elevation figure (2D symbols) are not showing

    @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...
  7. 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
  8. 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...

    Planting figure showing different direction--how to fix

    @Tony Kostreski Thank you! That's very helpful! Good to know the plants can be rotated!
  10. Hi everyone, I'm currently doing planting design and found the figure showing different direction. I've attached a screenview. It only started this morning. The same figure was normal yesterday. Could anyone explain what happened and how to fix? Thank you!

    Hi David, I am having the same issue here. All the hatch associated with the hardscape disappear in 3D viewports after make the hardscape into 3D. Have you find out how to resolve this problem?
  12. Hi everyone, I'm rather new to the 3D modelling of Vectorworks. Currently, I have a problem with the 3D setting of the Hardscape. I understand if I just draw a surface, I can extrude and creating 3D , and selecting texture through the object info palette. However, if choose to make the surface as hardscape, it seems I can only do the hatch in the plan view. I did set the hardsurface as a 'slab' with thickness. But in 3D viewport it's just a white solid. Is it possible to show the hatch I applied in plan view in 3D view? It helps for design at concept stage otherwise all the 3D slabs I have to adjust in the object infor-render part. For example, the decking hatch in plan view and the 3D view. Currently the deck is hardscape.
  13. @Tony Kostreski Thank you! That works! I guess now I should go back to the resource management to make sure all the categories are there
  14. Hi Everyone, I'm having a bit trouble with my planting list. I have selected a prescribed worksheet (plant list) to show my planting schedule. The pre-made one list plants based on its' category. But some category is missing so my planting is not listed in the schedule. How can I add the category into the worksheet and make sure all the plants are counted? Thank you! As the following showed, there is no category of succulent and orchid so currently, I changed the agave as a shrub to make it be included in the schedule but I don't want to change the orchid section as shrubs... I have tried to insert rows but I don't know how to link the row with the actual plant... If anyone could help that would be great!

    Hi all, I'm trying to edit plant style but after changing the spread, clicking ok, the plantdatabase jump out then an error message showed. At the moment I have trouble to cancel it. Does anyone meet same problem before?
