    Move doors with Reshape tool

    Thank you both methods work, but I think what I will do on most occasions is to make sure the marquee selection goes around the end point of the wall on the side that is in the direction I am going to stretch. This way the doors move and all I need to do is rejoin the wall at the end. Another trick I can use is to break the wall at some point near the stretch so the marquee selection can go around an end point. It would be nice if the tool worked the way it had in the past. I used it this way every day.

    Compare Fill Fore color

    This is not working and I have no idea why, any help would be appreciated. Procedure linecolor; Var cw: longint; r,g,b: LONGINT; h: handle; BEGIN GetFillFore(h, r,g,b); if r,g,b =(0,0,255) then SetFillFore(h :255,255,255); End; Run (linecolor);

    Is there any way to execute a script on a group of files?

    Script wont run in symbol

    I have written a script to change the lineweights of objects in a drawing based on there existing lineweight and it works fine in a layer but I can not get it to work in a symbol. Does anyone know what I could do to make this work. One Idea I have is to cut the objects out of the symbol and place them on a layer make the change and then put them back in the symbol but I do not know how do do this in a script. my script is below. Procedure Lineweight; Label 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106; VAR H1 : HANDLE; P1,P2 : real; Begin; DSelectAll; SelectObj(INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (LW=7)); DSelectObj(INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (T=TEXT)); H1:= FSActLayer; 100:SetLW(H1,3); H1:=NextSObj(H1); if H1<>Nil then goto 100; DSelectAll; SelectObj(INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (LW=10)); DSelectObj(INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (T=TEXT)); H1:= FSActLayer; 101:SetLW(H1,4); if H1<>Nil then goto 101; DSelectAll; SelectObj(INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (LW=14)); DSelectObj(INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (T=TEXT)); H1:= FSActLayer; 102:SetLW(H1,6); H1:=NextSObj(H1); if H1<>Nil then goto 102; DSelectAll; SelectObj(INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (LW=20)); DSelectObj(INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (T=TEXT)); H1:= FSActLayer; 103:SetLW(H1,8); H1:=NextSObj(H1); if H1<>Nil then goto 103; DSelectAll; SelectObj(INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (LW=28)); DSelectObj(INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (T=TEXT)); H1:= FSActLayer; 104:SetLW(H1,11); H1:=NextSObj(H1); if H1<>Nil then goto 104; DSelectAll; SelectObj(INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (LW=39)); DSelectObj(INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (T=TEXT)); H1:= FSActLayer; 105:SetLW(H1,12); H1:=NextSObj(H1); if H1<>Nil then goto 105; End; Run (Lineweight);

    Script wont run in symbol

    Since I did not need to keep the symbols as symbols I was able to convert them to groups and then my revised script worked for the entire drawing. Thanks for the input. PROCEDURE SelectedObjLineWeight; Var cw:integer; FUNCTION explodeob(h:HANDLE) :BOOLEAN; BEGIN SymbolToGroup(h,2); END; FUNCTION edObject(h:HANDLE) :BOOLEAN; BEGIN cw:=GetLW(h); if cw = 1 then SetLW(h, 8); if cw = 7 then SetLW(h, 4); if cw = 10 then SetLW(h, 6); if cw = 14 then SetLW(h, 8); if cw = 20 then SetLW(h, 11); if cw = 28 then SetLW(h, 12); if cw = 39 then SetLW(h, 15); END; BEGIN DSelectAll; SelectObj(INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (T=Symbol)); ForEachObjectInLayer(explodeob, 2, 2,1); ForEachObjectInLayer(edObject, 0, 2,1); END; Run(SelectedObjLineWeight);

    Script wont run in symbol

    Yes all lineweights in a document is my goal.
  8. Why don't I get the Linewieght to color table when I export a DWG and I have selected "Map Line Weights to Colors"

    Page setup

    Yes that was it, thanks

    Page setup

    Is there any way to define the printable area in a Vectorscript?
  11. When I open a file from Windows explorer the "save as" path does not set to the current file location, instead it is at what ever the location of the last path that I directed VW2009 to. This is the way that VW 12 worked and we were all pretty used to it at my office. Is there any setting to change it back to the old way.
  12. The Hamma

    File path does not default to file location

    Yes it's annoying, but it not just the "save as" is whenever I want to open another file, export a file, export a Pdf. The path never changes with the open file it remains at its last location. That would be fine if I dumped all of my files into the same location but I don't.

    Replace wall style deletes Symbols in wall

    Thanks, I'll do that.
  14. Using VW 12.5.x If I replace the wall style in the attached file it deletes the symbols that are inserted in the walls. I have tried this on every computer in our office. Is there any way to correct this?
  15. Often we have details that we pull in from other projects and or we rearrange the details on the sheet. Hence the need to renumber each label in consecutive order. It would be great to have a tool that I could set to a start number and click every consecutive detail mark and renumber them sequentially without having to edit the Object info for each item. This would save a great deal of time and my hands from carpel tunnel syndrome. P.S. it would be great if this worked on door and window marks, detail marks, and any other object that has record based number field.

    Dash Styles

    I need to revert the dashes in a drawing to the original dash styles that are included in a standard blank file. Is this possible.

    Minimum printed Lineweight

    I would like to bring this issue back up again. Many times things get drawn or symbols and hatches are in line weights 1 and 2 mils and this is just to small for our printers or our desires. It would be nice to have a setting that beefed up all line weights to a minimum and our minimum would be 3 mils. Seems like a simple request and a simple fix.
  18. I would appreciate a minimum printed linewieght option in the print dialog box. Reason being that may times symbols hatches and other objects nested deep within groups may be linewight 1. When I print any line below 3 they don't print, hence the need for a minimum printed linewieght.

    Katie, The boxes still appear when using PDF export, but not when printing to a PDF printer, after the workaround David

    Is VectorBits Dead

    I have tried to go to Vectorbits.com for several days now, and I get nothing. Has Vectorbits closed down.
  22. I WOULD LIKE TO VECTORWORKS TO BE ABLE TO EXPORT FILES VIA THE PRINT COMMAND. REASON BEING IT WOULD BE NICE TO PRINT A 2D MODEL SPACE ONLY DWG TO SEND TO THE ENGINEERS. OUR ENGINEERS GET PRETTY ANNOYED WITH PAPER SPACE. THE OTHER OPTION WOULD BE TO BEABLE TO CONVERT A PRINT SHEET AND ALL THE VIEWPORTS TO A GROUP SO I COULD PLACE THEM ON A SINGLE LAYER TO THEN EXPORT.

    PRINT EXPORT

    Thinking a bit more about my wish. I would like to be able to keep items grouped and polylines and such. It would be nice that if the viewport crops something then it is recreated as a smaller piece but if it doesn't then the object stays intact. And I said single layer but, I have changed my mind on that one, Just as long as the Dwg is produced in model space and no paper space.

    Problems Exporting DWGs

    One thing I would suggest is save the file you want to export to a seperate file. Then purge it until you cannot purge anything else. I would also suggest geting rid of the viewport all together bringing everything to design layers if you can. Then export. I have placed in the wish list for the capability for VW to use the print command to export. Hence producing a 2D single layer Dwg that is a replica of the drawing as viewed when printing.

    Move Command

    Yes you can, still slower than all the other programs, and doesn't have the versitilty of a reference point move.
