    Default 3D Legend View

    Appreciate the help. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

    Default 3D Legend View

    Thanks Mark, this is great. If I omit the first line, it will default to active, correct? Also what does the "set 3D orientation step do? Thanks.
  3. Hello, Would love to be able to assign a default 3D Legend View, either by designating it active (as you do with a Label Legend), or more likely by associating it with a Legend so the 2D and 3D defaults become active at the same time. It appears this is not currently possible based on the response in this thread: Thanks!

    Default 3D Legend View

    Thanks Jesse and Tom. I had managed to figure out what you outlined above, Jesse. Tom has articulated my problem exactly. Tom: I've actually updated our template/reference files to include this. We've got an insertable symbol with all our fixtures (so our classes survive purges with less clicking), and I've added the 3d Legend View settings for copy/pasting as you suggested. It would still be nice to be able to associate it with a symbol, so I'm off to feature requests. Thanks again!

    Default 3D Legend View

    Hello Dear Geniuses, Is there a way to designate a default 3D Legend View, either made active/selected like the default Label Legend, or associated with said active Label Legends? Thanks!
  6. Thanks! Been working through a bunch of videos. Just in that learning curve where a 5 second task takes 15 minutes:)
  7. Hi Brad, I'm in exactly the same boat. I'm currently sitting here trying to figure out how the heck to hang a light on a pipe, and pining so hard for the ability to patch in the spreadsheet (not to mention the x.y address nomenclature). Ping me if you want to commiserate; maybe we share the learning curve.

    Hi Sam, I emailed you. Please ping me if you didn't see anything in your inbox. Thanks, A.

    Hi Sam, So I was overly optimistic. When I switched the length to a "middle label" instead of a "connection", the blue control square appeared, but I was not able to move it independently. Attached are screenshots of an example, and the cable tool defaults at its creation. I'm hoping I've made some glaring error that is easy to fix... Thanks, A.

    Thanks so much, Sam. Turns out the length label I couldn't move was a "connection" - ie: it disappeared when I unchecked "display connections". I turned on "display length" instead, and was able to move that label as you describe. I'm still working on the silly circles, and I'll update if I figure it out. For now the class attribute change does the trick for the arrows. Appreciate your help. A.

    Cabling tools

    Hi everyone, Three wee cabling questions: How do I adjust the positions of labels (eg: length) on cables? This is per instance, obviously. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to move the label without moving the whole cable. I've just laid in several cat5 control cables. Why do some have circles at one end, and other have arrows at both ends? I can't see any differences between the properties of the cables in the object info window. How do I adjust the size/shape of these handy end shapes? When I get into directional signal cables, I foresee those circles' being a giant pain. Thank you!
  13. Hello, When I lasso from left to right, it selects only objects completely outlined by the defined area. But when I lasso right to left, it does the same, instead of grabbing everything touched by the defined area! How do I fix this, please? Thanks, -Noob
  14. Having a search bar in the help menu that points you to Where To Click (either within a menu, or anywhere on the screen) would be very helpful while learning to navigate. EG: I just spent 5 minutes trying to find the Vectorworks Preferences button.
