  1. Thanks to Jesse, it seems he pushed me in the right direction and the problem seems to be solved now. I assigned a text style to the class where the summary lives and since then i had no more issues with the text disappearing when publishing. It seems the Instrument Summary needs a class text style assigned, i´ve never done this before because it always worked for me. Howsoever, it seems again, like mostly, the bug sits in front of the screen 🙂 Thanks again and keep all safe and sound, Michael
  2. @jcogdell Thanks for your answer Iam working with exact the same Version 2021 / SP3.1 / Build 588748 However iam on a mac and still on osx 10.14.6
  3. Please find attached a testfile where this actually happens...maybe anyone of the vectorworks team wants to have a look at that! Thanks, Michael 210503_IS-Test.vwx
  4. Just want to let everybody know that this issue is back in VWX 2021 and does not go away with updating to SP3 This one just drove me crazy the last days since i have to fight with it on every reissue i have to do. Sometimes it works, sometimes it only affects one sheet, sometimes another. Thanks for the workaround with the eyedropper, it speeds up the process of renewing at least a little bit. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP !!! This is very annoying at not acceptable for a professional and quite expensive software and the fact that this bug is in the software since more then two years now doesn´t make it better!
  5. wow, thank you for your extensive answer, i really appreciate this! i actually just wanted to get rid of the dashed line but know i know a bit more about that whole title block border mystery 😄 thanks again and best wishes from the other side of the pond, Michael
  6. sure, this is the bottom line of the published pdf but i see the lines also in the viewports
  7. Hello All, i have created a custom title block and discovered a dashed line around it which is probably the papersize itself. i would like to remove this line but i cant touch it nor do i find any options anywhere to switch this off. can anybody help me here? thanks, Michael
  8. no grouping does not help at all, you need to convert to groups -> all subs apple-K is my best friend with DWGs now 🙂
  9. if anybody is interested, converting the objects to groups helps with that problem, the DWG had probably some weird symbols with scaling in them which caused occasionally this crazy behavior.
  10. unified view is not the problem here but thanks for that thought!
  11. Hello All, i have a very weird issue here and i cant figure out what is going on here. Iam working on this file since a week or so, it is a 3D plan of a TV Show (so iam working in Spotlight) i have a stage imported from a DWG, put in truss, fixtures etc, i had several version changes, added and changed fixtures etc., everythings good so far as you can see in the screenshot. Today iam looking at the published PDF files after another revision and i see that the stage is kind of cracked up, planes turned and it just is completely broken as you can see in the screenshots. The Model of the stage is also broken in wireframe and open gl of course. Even if i go two versions back, where everything looks normal and copy the model into the actual file, the stage cracks up in the same way again. Has anyone had anything similar before and is there a solution or workaround for that other than going back two versions and redraw anything i had changed until then? Is this a bug or is it just me doing something wrong? Iam actually quite experienced with vwx since 2008 but as we all know, most errors sit in front of the screen 😉 working on an iMac pro OSX 10.14.6 Mojave with VWX 2021 SP2 - already restarted vwx as well as the os EDIT: i had the similar problems when tried to import the stage model from the DWG the first time, the stage looked the same. However i managed this somehow and didn´t think about it until today. one of the last things i did before this happened was to EXPORT my sheet layers to DWG...could this maybe cause the issues? EDIT2: in a backup file i even can see that everything is ok in the file preview thumbnail, as soon as i open the file the stage breaks!?! Thanks in advance, Michael
  12. Thank you Pascal, this was exactly what i was looking for...i tried to modify the node already but i did not know i had to remove the first line to be able to do so! Thanks again for your detailed help! Michael
  13. Hi Pascal, sorry for the late answer and thank you for your answer, this is a brilliant workaround and it works like charm! Do you have any idea maybe why the dropdown list does not work? For my understanding i would need to have a input port in the "Objects by criteria" node where i can put in the criteria, coming from my field names list. Or is there another option to do that which i dont see? Also which node do i need to use to generate a user popup with radiobuttons for "true" and"false" ? With the existing node i can only choose 3 options in the OIP. Thank you in advance. Regards, Michael
  14. 190813_DrawBeam.vwxHi All, i try to write a script to toggle the "Draw Beam" option in the Lighting Instruments OIP. The goal is to switch quickly between beam visualization on/off of the different lighting instruments. I can see the checkmark appearing and disappearing after executing my script. However the function does not work, the beam is not shown/not disappears. If i check/uncheck the box it works as expected. Apart of that, how can i implement a selection by popup for the different instrument types? the script only works with the "Object by criteria" node, even if i paste the full criteria (('Lighting Device'.'Inst Type'='Robe BMFL Washbeam')) to a string node it does not work. Also i would like to have the draw beam on/off options as radiobuttons in a user popup but can´t find a node which does this. Tia Michael 190813_DrawBeam.vwx

    Manage Menu Commands

    as an addition for anybody who is interested: i found that one can assign a marionette script to a keyboard shortcut through converting it to a python script and turn it then into a plugin menu command! hope that makes sense. Michael

    Manage Menu Commands

    Hi Marissa, thanks for your quick reply! I cant find the Marionette Command Library.vwx ... looks like you are on Windows, do you know by any chance where i can find that on macOS? Tia Michael
  18. Hi All, how can i arrange/delete Marionette menu commands and how can i add a keyboard shortcut to a marionette menu command? The menu commands are not listed in the ressource browser and they are not apearing in the workspace editor. might be a noob question, but i could not find it anywhere. Tia Michael
