  1. Thank you ! I was able to add as a menu item - now I need to hunt down how to add as a right click item Thank you! Ethan
  2. Any one try the Razer Blade yet ? Only negative I see is the possible load fans and running warm ?
  3. Thanks Tom ... in the end - which machine do you get? I am pretty balanced between drawing & rendering. Thank you, Ethan
  4. Seems there should be a way to move the internal origin to a place that you want it? Maybe too many things are connected to it to move it ?
  5. I'm in need of a new laptop as my MBP is aging. Is VectorWorks on PC really that much nastier? I almost feel I should get a cheap PC laptop for month to play with windows and see if I can live in that environment. Has anyone else made the switch over to PC lately? the Razor sure looks sexy though Thanks
  6. I'm finding that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Like there is some order of operations that must be followed to get the drivers to kick in ?
  7. Copy - So each referenced viewport is its own individual thing. The trick is to duplicate the viewport of "P" and on different "A" layers as you need them. Thank you Ethan
  8. Hi -- I am referencing Part "P" into Assembly "A" I have classes / layers in "P" that I want to hide / show in different viewports in "A". How do I go about this ? When I go to the "Layers" or "Classes" visabilites in the Viewport dialogue box - I don't see the referenced layers / classes. Only the local ones. I don't want to control from the referenced viewport object of "P" - as I don't want it to be for ALL viewports in "A". Hope this makes sense Thanks!
  9. Yes - I've noticed a definite improvement Which fly mode are people liking ?
  10. 100% - if it worked in VectorWorks like the space Navigator does in the demo software, it would be a dream. It's pretty much why I purchased in the first place!
  11. Does anyone have a configuration that is working well on Mac with VectorWorks 2017? Can you export your config file ? I'm trying all permutations again - and getting frustrated (again!) thank you Ethan
  12. Pretty Great work - IMHO I apologize for any circular questioning .. This brings me to a question I posted on another thread ... Is there a comprehensive list of functions that can be called out in a worksheet? - the only lists I can seem to find are: http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Search_Criteria#Search_Criteria_Tables http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Function_Reference_Appendix#attrCrit http://kbase.vectorworks.net/questions/1089/Worksheet+Functions+-+Doors http://kbase.vectorworks.net/questions/1090/Worksheet+Functions+-+Plants http://kbase.vectorworks.net/questions/1088/Worksheet+Functions+-+Windows The kbase articles look the most promising - but there is not a full list I can find? For Example: You use : =('Data Stamp'.'FileName') Where does one find the function callout ? Data Stamp'.'FileName Is there a comprehensive list of all callouts? Thank you for your time Ethan
  13. Hi mk Very impressive as I poke my head around the file. I'm seeing a lot of the items I was interested in learning about! Question: Is there a reason that the Filename and Total Sheets do not pull automatic values? Sorry if this is a silly question - I'm kind of beat here on late Sunday night. Thank you much, _ER
  14. Lots of great info here! But the original question is "how do I reference the Sheet Names / Number / Description from the Organization Dialogue box? If I enter then names there - I want my title block to reference them Using the Sheet Border Tool - I have to put the information into each info pallet and each title block separately. It seems much more straight forward - and much better organized - to pull the information from the "Organization" Pallet. Obviously this is recorded - so I would like to pull it to use in my title block. This will keep everything aligned when I use the Publish Tool. Thanks Ethan
  15. Thanks Pat I want to create a TOC that utilizes the same info I use to "publish" a drawing set. - So i don't want to use custom fields - I want to be able to reference Drawing #'s, Names & Descriptions from the Organization window (see screenshot). I would like to display the info in my title block AND in a TOC worksheet as a cover page. Thank you Ethan
  16. Hi, Trying to build a worksheet to reference: Sheet Number Sheet Title Sheet Description And then also be able to put them in the Title Block. Is there a way to do this? I can't figure out the syntax. Or do I have to use the TitleBlock Tool ? Thanks Ethan
  17. OMG Thank you ! It seems that there should be a good reference for this. I'm not trying to reference Sheet Number Sheet Title Sheet Description Seems like it is a no brainer somehow ?? but i can't find it. Can someone point me to the correct syntax?
  18. is there a good tutorial on this? I found the "wall report" tutorial - but it does not really show the "how" to construct arguments - just a lot of 'do this" thanksl
  19. So easy - so perfect THANK YOU !!!! is there a list of all the references somewhere? I feel as if they are very hard to figure out what each one is. ty Ethan
  20. Hi - Trying to create a wall schedule - and I want to name some walls for clarification. Trying to create a Name (IFC Field in the OIP??) and then pull it on the report? Can someone give me the right location for the name and syntax for the report? Thank you Ethan
  21. I found the object that was causing the trouble. Selected it. then Right Click and chose release from the sub-menu that seemed to do the trick
  22. ? the project file is on BOX - so in theory it should be synced with the home machine ?
