  1. Try sending the parent object to the back first then select closest point. I have also been trying something similar to this but it gets tricky when both PIO's use the same code - therefore when one finds it's child object the child object becomes the parent and thus finds the original parent (confusing i know) what needs to be done in this case is somehow setting a flag on each object (like an invisible field) to say that it's been done. Please let me know if this helps, it might help my tool along.
  2. THE BAD HABIT OF BEING A DRAFTY IS LEAVING THE CAP'S KEY ON - . Good wish, i'd also like an option to filter out all visible layers and classes in the layer/class pull down whilst working to save scrolling through the whole list on each sheet.
  3. How about a command to email selected objects - at present I need to copy a detail into a blank document, save it - use my email client to send it then trash the document after.
  4. These things can easily be written with a simple linear object in Vectorscript.
  5. I know that, however all linux graphics programs are ported on most linux distributions. However if I should name one, then make it Mandriva.
  6. How about porting Vectorworks to Linux ? A lot of people use Linux - a lot of wallets.
  7. If filemaker stores data in a text file you can read that using SDK.
  8. How about being able to edit the Viewport Crop similar to the new revision cloud - i.e with the 2D reshape tool. This will save the need to enter the viewport to simply resize it slightly. Being able to enter it to edit the viewport is still however needed for cutting holes etc. But this extra option would be great.
  9. This is probably a major call - but how about live workgroup referencing with chat ability ? This will make it easier when working in groups so you can see where things are going to clash.
  10. Does anyone know how to find the intersection of two linear plug-in objects and placing say a locus at the intersection point and when either of the objects is moved the locus is update. So far I have linelineintersect() but the problem i'm find with linear objects is that everything is relative to the start of the line and not the drawing.
  11. Does anyone know how to move the drawing rectangle, I'm writing a script to print window, I have set the drawing rectangle using getrect() but it only sizes it to the centre of the current drawing frame
  12. Edit script in the saved sheets are great for something to happen before activating the sheet. Since viewports are kind of sheets within sheets it would be good if they too could activate their own scripts.
  13. Walls only act as segments, I would like to be able to change the entire polygon, for example a Strip footing.
  14. How about an option when creating double polygons or double lines if they kept their information so the width, cavities etc can be modified in the object info. This would be very handy with variations.
