  1. I am attempting to put a plant symbol in a drawing.  The colors on several of the symbols are not coming through.  When inserted into the drawing they are showing a solid white fill.  Whats the setting.  You will see I have inserted plant #86...No fill on drawing

  2. Ahhh so I need to do more than one ungroup?  Separate the bitmap from the white rectangle then ungroup the bitmap again and delete the white rectangle?  I already traced it out but I will try it again just to see.  I'll let you know what happens.

  3. I figured it was something like that.  I tried to Trace Bitmap but it only comes up with scattered pixels.  I'll mess with it and see what I can figure out...then I'll trace it.   Thanks for trying Kevin!

  4. Thanks for the instructions it seems to be the Vectorworks standard. I can't seem to get it to work.   I ungrouped, deleted the bitmap, got it to the white box.  There is no data in the white box.  Is it possible that its been locked by the engineering firm that created it?  Or am I missing a setting.  I control Zd back to ungroup and then pulled the two apart.

  5. Is there a quick way to convert a PDF to lines on a drawing.  I'm importing a site plan from a client which is in PDF format.  It comes in scaled perfectly with lines very clear.  Do I need to trace it or is there a trick?

  6. I want to print some rough drafts and the plan is only printing out about 2/3 of the design on an 11x17 page.  How do I adjust the print margins so I use the entire page...Margins excluded of course.  It shows on the screen that it is with in the available print area.  It was also only printing to page breaks.  I have a formatting issue.

  7. Ok just did it and used the selection tool to select the whole screen.  Nothing highlighted.  Somehow I have a symbol floating around way off in left field that I can't find.  Is it a digital ghost?😄

  8. Yea in advanced plant settings the annotations were not set properly and the plant tags were set as various things.  That weren't correct.  I have it straightened up here thanks for the help


  9. I have a report which is showing a plant which I can't see or find on my plan.  I'm not sure how to get it out of there so I can clean up the report.  You will see Plum Pudding Coral Bells.  Thats the one that needs to go.  What do I do?

  10. I have two view ports I want to display different data.  One has plant tags one has callouts.  The sheet with the plant tags Cover Sheet is to display plant tags.  The other, Specification Sheet, is to display the general specs for the job.  I want to show the plant symbols on the Specification Sheet but not the plant tags.  The plant tags show up on both but when I go to shut them off on the OIP tag function it takes them from both.  How do I unlink the two viewports?

  11. I have the attached flagstone path which was created by Duplicate Along Path.  I want to capture the individual pieces into a worksheet so I can estimate the amount of pieces I will need.  Is there a way to do it?  Somehow I see they are 3d symbols I must have created them like that.  I'm not sure if that's an issue.  LMK.  Thanks.
