  1. just for curiosity, and because nobody answered on my previours datamanager-post.

     

    Who really does work on BIM-projects with Vectorworks?

    @rDesign @Andy Broomell  @bcd

    @zeno how is the situation in Italy?

     

    Who else do you know however where (USA, Canada, american contintent generally) who does do BIM?

     

    (I am just wondering about lacking Datamanager skills in here, or lacking interest in the Datamanager..., mainly because it's a tool which has been improved significantly during the last 3-4 VW Versions...)

  2. I started some troubleshooting posts in here,

    however I got no answer. Does anybody really use it?

    I imagine, that it's mainly used in european studios, like in BeNeLux, DACh (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and maybe Scandinavia.

     

    However, there doesn't seem to be many experts in here, or am I wrong?

    The tool seems to be to "new" somehow (also it exists for at least 6 Versions...)

  3. One of my colleagues recently had this strange picture on his screen. What could it be?

    It's Vectorworks 2022 SP5 (German), a MB Pro 16" 2019 with MacOS 10.15 with all updates. 16GB Ram, 8GB VRam.

    The "problem" just occured once, a few days ago and it was visible on the MacBook screen and on the connected USB-C screen as well. Unfortunately it disappeared and after rebooting and didn't come back.

    So, I guess it's either a videocard issue or some software problem (MacOS or Vectorworks?)

    However I remember, that graphiccard problems look more likely like in the following two links. Right? (stripes, no triangles)

    Did ever anybody see sth like this as well?

  4. @JuanP just for curiosity, somehow it feels like the datamanager is performing quite complex background-tasks in vw.

    1) is the datamanager running on another thread/cpu-core?

    2) might a complex datamanager be a source of vw instabilities?

    3) who else could I ask?

     

    I mean, somehow vw offers the user a bunch possibilities how to manage and organize things, unfortunately that can be a source of problems and instabilities as well. Like running your operating system in expert mode all the time, acting as a root user. 😉

  5. 25 minutes ago, Marissa Farrell said:

    The script DOES reset the objects every time it's run, it just appears to have a dependency elsewhere.

    so, the way all data stamp objects are been reseted depends on the scale of the actually open layer. Sheetlayers always are 1:1 layers, design layers aren't (1:100 in my case for example)

     

    , it's the old scale problem in symbols, which affects that behavior again. Would be great to set up a layer to work like a wanted layer scale, as well.

     

    Its about modular building with many instances of a generic floorplan.

    Obviously that topic is in research...

  6. funny thing, however I don't understand why.

    first an introduction:

     

    There's a symbol in the file with 2 space objects and 2 data stamps inside.

    Every time I edit the data stamp style all stamps get scaled big and every time I export a pdf with the command "reset all Plugin objects" all data stamps get small again.

    there's no right or wrong, maybe data stamp objects are not designed for being used inside symbols, I don't know... (reason - all symbol content is in scale 1:1 wether all designlayers have another scale...)

     

    now the main part

     

    i wrote a little script, which resets all data stamps. however, that script only works when executed from a sheet layer. When I try to run it from a design layer none of the data stamp objects is resetted. WHY?

    (you can try it in the attached file, if you want)

     

    (if you want to get big data stamps again, just edit the data stamp stile...)

     

    @Pat Stanford @JBenghiat  @odaus

     

    !!!! I DON'T WANT NO DATA STAMP; SYMBOL-usage or other help, I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY THAT SCRIPT ACTS THAT STRANGE WAY I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND !!!!

     

    thanks
