  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. 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.
  3. Has anyone seen the instagram ad? That is pretty slick! Have no idea how to do that in VectorWorks !!
  4. 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 !!!
  5. @Kevin - lol - odd workaround - works for a bit- then if I re-open VectorWorks (mostly due to crashing) it has to be done again.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 🙂
  8. 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
  9. 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 🙂
  10. 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
  11. 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)
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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 🙂
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. That is very true -- maybe we can submit for inclusion in Spotlight
  19. 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
  20. OH - yes - swagging is a way of life !
  21. In a way I think maybe @C. Andrew Dunning could alter the stanchion tool to convert to a festoon lighting tool ???
  22. Made a couple ... thoughts ?? Cee Form.vwx
  23. 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
