  6. What is the format for displaying ifc data in a worksheet. I am playing around with the new data tag tool. I have a data tag tool associated with a wall and the tag text defaults to the ifc data associated with the mark field under the wall styles data tab.

  11. Good morning, That is exactly what I am looking for! From a cursory look it appears that the data field names are pretty strait forward - that is no abbreviations. for example: ='Title Block Border'.'Sheet Size Name' That said is there a data dictionary that identifies each data field by name.
  12. Are the data fields on the title block accessible via work sheet. I would like to create a sheet list that has added data not available in the "standard sheet list" built by the reports function. i.e. issue number and date
  13. Have you tried turning off "Standard Naming"? File / Documents Settings / Standard Naming
  14. Thank you - so simple when one knows where to start. I do not know why I struggled with this for so long. Interesting; Am I correct that one has to put text linked to a record in the 3D container?
  15. I can attach a record to a symbol instance via the resource browser but it seems the only way to populate the data fields is via the edit function which does not change the record associated with the symbol. Is there a tutorial or a set of instructions that explains this operation
  16. How do I save a symbol in my favorites file with the associated data? I create a symbol in a project file, attach a record and populate the data fields, however when I export it to one of my favorites file for future use it arrives without the record attached. Any ideas
  17. Try setting "Y value equal to reference elevation"

  19. There is a drop down menu at the bottom on the attributes pallet that give a choice to make an object " make all attributes by class" or if no object is selected it makes the the default "Make all attributes by class". I was looking for a faster way than having to navigate down the attributes menu and then select an option in a drop down menu.
  20. Does anyone have a keyboard shortcut or script to make the default to "Make all attributes by class"
  21. Ok, so i signed up for "Bimobject" entered my user identification key. set user settings "download symbol to active drawings only" Clicked on an object on the Bimobject site (thru vectorworks via the Bimobject tool) got to the download window and tried to down load both an IFC and a Rivit model. When I tried to place the object in a new drawing I get an "X" with a dotted box around it. But no object is placed, nor is one downloaded into the Resource Browser. Any advice After further research (I should have continued reading the help section) sketch up file type worked just fine. Select the file format to download (either .vwx, or a compatible format such as .dwg, .skp, or .3ds), and click to download the file.
  22. How does one turn on the member identifier mark, "Member ID" in a 2d plan view" ? Or in 3D I am looking for something similar to "Framing member label text"
  23. In the "create interior elevations" tool, what is the function of the "Detail Number". Can it be displayed automatically in the interior elevation view port title. I was thinking it might be used to display the room number of a space associating multiple interior elevations to their specific space.
