  1. I'm sure this is covered somewhere, but I cannot find the right search terms. When I use Cloud Services to publish the 3D model - how do I set the initial "home" view? Thank you
  2. As cloud services picks up the file from dropbox -> Is it whatever view happens to be active on the file when the process begins on the cloud server? That seems a bit random. It also stops me from working on the file during the wait time & Process time 😞

    Duplicate Along Path 2.0

    I gave the Repeat Along Path tool a try. it is seems more a glorified Duplicate along path then a true PIO tool. I would not consider it a replacement, though it can be useful.
  4. Has anyone seen the instagram ad? That is pretty slick! Have no idea how to do that in VectorWorks !!

    Duplicate Along Path 2.0

    This is more along the lines of what I was thinking. Model on a PIO like the Rope & Stanchion Tool. That will allow editing of paths and output to a report. Thank you Kevin for creating the Request !!!

    VW 2019 viewports drop down

    @Kevin - lol - odd workaround - works for a bit- then if I re-open VectorWorks (mostly due to crashing) it has to be done again.
  7. Has anyone played with the idea of using the Fence tool to create lines of crowd control barricade? Would be interesting. Also possible might be adjusting the rope&Stanchion PIO? hmmmmm

    VW 2019 viewports drop down

    I wish we Could do this on the Info Pallet - drag left so that there is more room Or if the drop-down right justified so you could see the full names.

    Fencing tool for Crowd Contorl Barricade?

    That's what I'm doing now. Would be great if it was more like the Rope&Stanchion - so I could edit the polyline and have it auto adjust. Also - adjust if I change barricade styles - aka from 8' Bike Rack to 10' wooden police or 3' MOJO 🙂

    Timesheet / TimeCard ?

    Ahh - I like it if I can do it with the Set to Operations on the autosave. I often leave the file open overnight or whatever - so purely open / close would not really be indicative. I was also thinking a simple excel style report where I could manually enter start/stop times and it could calculate hours. I'll take a look at the log again though. thanks 🙂

    Timesheet / TimeCard ?

    Hi all, I was thinking of seeing if I could make a report in VectorWorks that would work to track my hours on a project. Wondering if anyone has attempted this before I give it a go! Thanks Ethan

    Using Symbol Library with Spotlight Tools ?

    I was doing this for a while - but then each library update was overwriting my file. So I had to keep a separate file and then it got too annoying. (or some-such as I remember)
  14. Hello all .... I realize this is something I should have figured out a long time ago -- however .... The Spotlight tools are chocolate-- ie - insert a projector, speaker, array, etc .. The Spotlight libraries are peanut butter - ie. L'acoustics, Panasonic, etc ... How to I make a Reese's ?? (insert the library symbol into the plugin tool?) thanks e

    AutoHybrid with Data

    How come if I use the the "AutoHybrid" I lose all ability to use the PIO data? Catch-22 - Can't make an AutoHyrbrid of a Symbol and keep the data - Can't make an AutoHybrid of a Group to make a symbol with data am I missing something?

    "Log Time in Program"

    So I've had the "Log Time in Program" set on forever; and today finally went to use it. Does anyone have a quick workflow that can figure out the amount of time you have spent in each file by calculating the Open/Close times? Thanks 🙂 Ethan

    Custom North Arrows

    So I found a cute Compass I want to use for a North Arrow. I use the North Arrow tool and see 10 "Configs" I see the "North Arrow" file in the Resources Browser. I Edit that file and see 27 existing arrows - now 28 with my new one. How do I change the "Configs" to use one of the other 27 arrows? Thanks 🙂

    Using Symbol Library with Spotlight Tools ?

    I was playing around with it - and I found that If I put one of the panasonic projectors into my drawing - That projector then became availabe to the PIO Screen Tool. I think it may have something to do with the correct Record being attached to the symbol?? I also remember adding symbols to the library file that the PIO referenced. However, this got boring as every library update and/or version release wiped out that file. I'll shoot to upload an example later.

    Air Conditioner Sizing

    Hi all, Is there a quick way to figure out BTU's of AirCon required for a space? Looking to double check my event supplier. Thank you Ethan
  20. That is very true -- maybe we can submit for inclusion in Spotlight
  21. Wow - this felt promising and it has a lovely icon Getting a script error (Image enclosed) It says t sa UTF encoding error ? Maybe I"m doing something wrong?? thanks Ethan

    Catenary curve tool

    OH - yes - swagging is a way of life !
  23. In a way I think maybe @C. Andrew Dunning could alter the stanchion tool to convert to a festoon lighting tool ???
  24. Hello all .. Looking for UK / EU power symbols. Have to draw in 16A single phase CEE Form outlet 32A 3-phase CEE-Form etc ... Anyone have / know what those symbols should look like? Thanks Ethan
