  2. @Pat Stanford @Sam Jones thanks for you ideas!!! 🙂
  3. i didn't dare to use it in fact ;D (also it was one of my favorite commands in GW Basic decades ago 😆) But, good ideas!!!
  4. Look for example in the following description. In the python syntax all boolean variables are written wrong. After trying the script on my own, I found out, that "false" and "true" have to be written with a capital 'F' and 'T' and not with a lowercase f or t. So, 'False' and 'True' is right, not 'false' and 'true'. I guess, that's not the only wrong function reference. https://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:IFC_GetPsetInfoAt
  5. at least there's a task manager/activity manager on any computer for that case ;-). But, seriously, how can I implement a dialogue with an abort-button in a foreach-loop which cycles through an undefined number of objects? In a for or while loop I can just use an AlertQuestion which returns me the value for escaping the loop, when I press the abort button. But in a foreach-loop?
  6. @Pat Stanforddoes ist also work, Wheel I‘m stuck in an AlrtDialog? however, worth a try is worth a try 😉
  7. Hi, does there exist a command (both in Vectorscript and Python) for immediately interrupt a script in both python and Vectorscript? I actually am using the foreach-command quite often. There it's quite difficult interrupting with a dialogue with an abort button. Unfortunately "Ctrl-C", "Esc"... don't work. the only working alternative actually is forcing Vectorworks to close completely. Thanks for your help!
  8. Till VW 2021 SP1 wall components in the ifc-Export got the Name of the Wall style. Since 2021 SP2 now the component name in the ifc-file is no longer the wall-style name but switched to the component name. Due to the fact, that now every component has its own attributes, name,... that sounds like it "works as designed". However, we would prefer naming every wall-component in the ifc-file like the wall style. Now I don't know where to interfere/influence to obtain the wished result in the data manager. As you already can see in the file data manager, of course, walls are exported by components. I attached the original VW 2021 file, the SP1 ifc-export and the SP2 ifc-export. Thanks in advance. 2021-IFC-Export-Test.vwx.zip 2021-SP1-Test.ifc.zip 2021-SP2-Test-2.ifc.zip
  9. @JuanP thank you but I already did contact the service-select support from our local reseller, and I have been sent to http://vectorworks.net/ . Unfortunately there isn't a download-source for what I am looking for, or is there something I didn't see?
  10. Do you mean mac "accessible corners"? They are called "hot corners" and, here with mac os 10.14.6 everything works fine.
  11. Hi, we aregerman Vectorworks Serviecselect-customers and till 2016 have been using english/us Vectorworks program versions. Actually still some colleagues are working with us Vectorworks 2016. Now we switched to G-Series/network licenses. Unfortunately our us-version-installer to be an E-Series installer only, to me. Could you pls help me where to get an installer for Vectorworks 2016 SPX - Mac OS - G-Series? That would be a great help!!!
  12. ok, so, i made a check what happens, if I check out a license and try to work "offline" with more instances of Vectorworks. It worked as well. So: - if I work in connection with the RLM, every Instance of Vectorworks I open is counted in the RLM. so, either 10 persons open 10 instances or 5 persons open 2 instances a person. However it's 10 licenses running on the RLM - If I instead check borrow a 2021 license and work outside the company-network, I can open as many instances as I want with just one license counted on the RLM (already tried it here) - (same issue with E-Series and with B-Series/Dongle-Series) - with one license I can open as many instances on the same machine, as I want to) Somehow that doesn't make sense to me...
  13. Hi, just a short question. When I use more Vectorworks-Versions simultaneously on the same machine, does every Vectorworks instance I run count as a license? I just took a look at the RLM Server Administration Web-Interface and it looks to me like that. Every time I start or quit a Vectorworks-Program/Instance on my local machine the license counter on the server goes up or down. If I check out a license instead i can run as many instances on my machine&user as I want simultaneously (what makes more sense to me, imho) So, is the number on the server right or just simply misleading. In fact actually I got 2020, 2021 SP1 and 2021 SP2 running on my Mac and every instance is listed on the RLM Administration-License overview...
  14. Hi, could anyone get me a download-link (or an installer directly) for a VW 2016 SPX - Mac OS - G-Series Installer? We switched to G-Series and now i got trouble Installing our US-Version, because I only have an E-Series Installer on our Server. PLEASE HELP 😉 needless to mention, that we of course have our working serial numbers and a working license-server here, so, everything legal...
  15. i had the same problems, too. In fact it's been a converted workspace.
  16. Hi, has anyone some recommendations for a macbook pro 16" USB-C/Thunderbolt docking station? We are looking for an easy to use, reliable docking station to use - with an 4K external monitor which gets connected with the correct screen resolution! - as power supply - for attaching the macbook to an RJ45 Ethernet Cable Just one single USB-C Cable to plug in, not one for the docking station, one for the monitor, one for power... The docking stations we actually bought don't do that job. (more than one mb pro 16")
  17. sure, in Germany we all have quertz keyboards, there are also keys with strange dots on vocals O_o (they look like Ä,Ö,Ü) , and, we are all driving on the right side of the street here and we are using dimensions in a so called "metrical system". The quarter pounder with cheese for example here is named "royal ts" and, wait, we still use latin letters and arabian numbers, but, why does this matter? 😉 And why does Ctrl-Z work on windows and Command-Y works on Mac? 😄 however, now I know more
  18. Hi, just call "issue". The Script-Editor on Mac doesn't support cmd-z. On Windows Ctrl-Z instead does work. Just a small Enhancement-Request...
  19. HAREA = vs.AreaN("('datenbank'.'Haus'="+HNRS+")") made it. The Variable also only works without single quotes. (not HAREA = vs.AreaN("('datenbank'.'Haus'='"+HNRS+"')") ) first step made 😄 thank you!!!
  20. finally have been able to resume my work on python, never thought it would be that different between vectorscript and python. The code from above doesn't return me any syntax errors, however, it doesn't still work I actually try to calculcate the area of all objects with the same criteria, (like I already have been able to do in Vectorscript) I tried it your way, then I tried it the other way you suggested me last time in vectorscript. Concatenating strings works fine in python, with + signs and with vs.Concat. However the area-function doesn't return me the area of all objects with the wanted criteria. So I integrated the AlrtDialog in the end of the script, just to see what really is happening inside the script, and, every concatenation looks really good. However, the area is always empty. I also wrote # in front of the area function, just to see, if there was another problem. From that moment the HAREA variable was always = 1234. (because I set it = 1234 in the 5th line) Somehow I want to port my script to python, too 1) because I am learning both, python and vectorscript 2) because i think that python in long terms is the better choice... thanks for your great help to my last questions!

  21. Hi, is there any possibility of mapping numeric data into a string ifc-string variable and prevent the variable from having many decimal places? like num2str from vectorscript? Unfortunately the data manager doesn't run on vector script :D.
