  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.
  15. I would like to see the attribute palette incorporated into the object info palette. When no objects are selected then show the defaults. It should be in the shape tab under all other shape info for the object.
  16. When attempting to open a file in V11, I get a Visual C++ Runtime error message. The file was originally created in V9 and converted to V11.
  17. When printing A1 on our KIP printer from the A0 roll (Landscape) it prints sometimes correctly but more often than not it prints sideways leaving room on the top to trim. This only seems to happen with VW11 and seems to be fine with VW9
  18. I admit the worksheets in VW are excellent and I agree with you they could be better - They do so much. In some cases i've found myself resorting to using VW for my spreadsheets but if they were just that much better we can do away with excel.
  19. I found turning off the new Accelerated navigation preference helps
  20. Since this has happened since the minicad days, I have obbsessively had my fingers close to the 'command'+'s' keys, I probably save once every 30 seconds. I agree this needs to be fixed. How about like a database such as filemaker where once an entry is made it is written straight to the file rather than having to manually save ?
  21. When editing worksheets with small text (say 6 points) it is quite difficult to read it (unless you're in that cell and the text is on the edit bar). A simple zoom button will be good for this (similar to excel). Perhaps another thing could be to edit the text in the cell which would be possible with zoom control. Also, when right clicking on the row or column headers, more options would be great like formatting text etc. To put it quite simply, let's make worksheets just like excel. Merge text, find cell etc, all those cool things. P.S has anyone seen Autocad's attempt at worksheets (excuse the language but it's piss poor)
  22. By justify I mean like you can in a wordprocessing document. So all the text within a block is spaced slightly different so it all lines up along it's edges.
  23. While I think about it - Justified text would be great, if all the text in the block was aligned, it would be easier and neater to line up the leader.
  24. Turn your monitor sideways LOL. Just kidding I agree
