  1. Woah weird I just copy and pasted directly from AI to VWX 2024 and it worked great.
  2. Jk you need to click through to the path and reverse it there.
  3. And... still an issue. Also "reverse" is missing. Official help hasn't been updated to reflect current OIP. Please send help ! https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2016/eng/VW2016_Guide/Text/Creating_Text_Along_a_Path.htm
  4. 9 years later... anyway to combine nurbs surfaces??
  5. Still problematic ! I suspect this is a VWX 2023 draw bug. I'm noticing lots of weird draw issues and this is certainly related.
  6. hey guys missed u Here are two solids: When I click to add solids, I get this nonsense: Oddly, when I hover over the object, I still see the original, clean Bézier curves: My next thought was - Shaded renderer is on low. Switched it to high. Still have same issue. When I click into it, it shows the bez points correctly, too: This means that this is probably a render error of some kind. At different zoom levels, it sometimes looks like this, too: Any thoughts here? So bizarre.
  7. You didn't include that handy-dandy additional super-power. I'd love it though.
  8. @michaelk amazing work. have been using today and it's insane that this stuff isn't built in! I want to combine your palletes into a single windows w/ several palletes and give the tools icons and all of that good-good. Wish I could dock 'em ! Again, amazing work. Thanks for making these.
  9. Content is NDA (classsssic) What I can tell you is, if I create a new report with the same settings, I can modify cells and then it'll update the cells on my original, locked report. This is fine for now. **scratches head** I can click the cells, format them, etc, but I can't modify the content in the cells. very weird.
  10. I have a report from a record, I used to be able to edit the record data straight ion the worksheet, but now it won't let me. Some sort of locked thing going on? Any ideas?
  11. @michaelk you are a monster!! Can’t wait to try these out!!
  12. 🤦‍♀️ Been a minute since I used Detail Viewports, but every time I try to make one, regardless of source VP, I get this error: VP source already has a crop (because, duh) VP source - have tried all different kinds of render types VP source - have removed all other VP links (like section markers) Where are the droids I'm looking for?
  13. Ortho view, hidden line. I want to make certain layers (I.e., "Venue") appear in Hidden Line any render view, but I want the opacity of those line weights/solids/etc to be brought way down. Obvious thought is to bring the opacity down in overrides, but that doesn't seem to change anything... is this a problem with hidden line shaded all render types?
  14. @Mark Aceto aha - so "Don't Count These" is a Layer - "L"= Layer
  15. @Mark Aceto having spent a little time in a worksheet WITH and a worksheet WITHOUT database rows, the undo bug is only in a worksheet with database rows. Otherwise: undo behaves as it should. Either way though, who QA's this stuff?? Have always wondered about that...
  16. You guys are the best! @michaelk Do a manual spreadsheet rather than a report w/ database rows works perfectly. I have fixed number of spares, rather than a percentage, so instead of referencing a percentage cell, I'm just putting in a number. All of my objects that I'm counting are symbols so that works great. I don't understand the "'Don''t Count These'" in the formula and the "L" - my stuff still calcs properly with this, but wondering what this is.
  17. Confirming my name is trashcan. Ditto re: UE. It performs on an M1, but not super well. 😞
  18. A fixed reference for a viewport would solve this annoying series of work around we've all developed. @Mark Aceto your thinking about assigning any viewport a position of 0,0 so when the angle changes, the model position doesn't, is a great idea. @Boh I am using ortho views, but only for isos. Using section VPs for everything (left, right, front, back) is a timesaver and a technique I'm just starting to use. It's nice to have the section references on a top view, but not strictly necessary for my purposes. Good workflow adjustment for me.
  19. Undo within worksheets undoes your previous action outside of the Worksheet edit. You can't undo anything within a worksheet in VWX2022 SP4. Sup?
  20. Adding some text like pipe sum or calculate quantity or worksheet sum so I this is more easily searchable at a later date !
  21. 2.1 through 2.4 are calculated from Records. I want to add a column that is Extras Spares and then a sum Column that calculates the total. Column 3, 4 are manually added as they are spares not on the plot. I want to manually put in spare #s in column C that are calculated from records, but it won't let me. Is there a way to do this? Also the =SUM isn't working for total units for 2.1 through 2.4. It's calculating as "1" Help? thx
  22. @Mark Aceto the image didn't make it!
  23. This has been driving me nuts for years. I make a viewport, crop it, annotate all nice and then I want to duplicate that VP and change the view, say from LEFT to RIGHT. Now my crop has to be moved. I know I can make a new VP via a design layer and it'll do the things I want, but then I have to redo all my annotations. Seems like a pain either way. Is there some secret recipe out there somewhere that allows me to: change a view of a viewport and the crop intelligently re-adjust to the new view? would probably save me hundreds of hours over the years...
  24. Dumb question - so dashed hidden line in section view kind of does what I achieve, but if there's a lot, say, behind the room where my section is, how can I easily hide it rather than class every damn little thing? That's what I was trying to do by using clip cube lolol.
