  1. Sometimes it works sometimes not. How can one tag show correctly and the other not for the same symbol? The image shows 2 plant groups with exactly the same settings yet one shows the images and the other does not. VWORKS Plant tag images Error.vwx
  2. Let me guess - this is still unresolved by VEctorworks? Yet another reason we canceled our Service Select membership and are no longer going to update. These issues effectively make the software unusable. We have irrigation plans that require waiting hours a day for calculations to complete. This is unbelievably frustrating. We are looking for other solutions and possibly will farm out our irrigation work as a result.
  3. Title says it all. This is now happening in a few files since upgrading to 2022 (mistake). We will have to spend hours copying data over to a new file to correct this problem.
  4. Ah the EVER OCCURRING arrows showing up all over the place. I have never used a piece of software so prone to such ridiculous errors. I have a file that has them showing up on all the hardscape objects. Why on earth can we not set a class arrow style to NONE!!!!!!???????????????????????????? WHY ARE THERE ARROWS ON HARDSCAPE OBJECTS?
  5. I'm not seeing this solution working for me. Why on earth would anyone ever want fractions on a topo? Why is this even an option. Why don't tools like this just work for us? This appearts to be a bug.
  6. Perhaps the issues we are all having with landscape areas is mathematical. The algorithm used to generate these quantities is not a true 'circle packing' process involving tricky math. What this tool apparently does is create a grid with spacing based on the largest plant in the list - though even this is not consistent. This means that the quantities for the smaller plants in the list will be way off if you use plants that vary widely in spread. Take a look at the attached to see what I mean. The only way to make this tool useful therefore is to create landscape areas that include plants with very similar spreads.
  7. This is confusing - I suspect the reason for the lack of response. It is unclear whether we are to sort on 'Plant Record', 'Plant' or simply 'Field Value'.
  8. Unless I am missing something this still does not resolve the issue in 2022. We always draw objects with all styles BY CLASS - However there is NO WAY TO TURN OFF arrows/line markers via class attributes. when you draw a line and set 'make all attributes by style' we get arrows on EVERY SINGLE OBJECT. Please tell me I am missing something.
  9. Is this still not resolved or did it come back to haunt us in 2022? There is NO WAY TO TURN OFF arrows/line markers via class attributes. However when you draw a line and set 'make all attributes by style' we get arrows on EVERY SINGLE OBJECT. Please tell me I am missing something.
  10. 2022 - the OIP stops working after a while and displays no information about any selected items. I repeatedly have to close the software and re-start to solve the problem. Right clicking an object brings up the info but nothing shows in the OIP
  11. It appears the worksheet criteria function, though it has been nicely improved, does not work. See attached. Setting a criteria for the record, in this case 'Plant Record', has no effect on the data.
  12. Having this very same issue right now with a deadline. It appears the 'Mass Plants' toggle button has been replaced with 'Apply fill across plant grouping.' I've resolved a few of the issues by unchecking this. Do you know by the way how to batch -revert to 2021? I wonder if this is possible. I've stupidly already batch converted the projects I'm working on and deleted the old files. Now I'm screwed.
  13. Unless I am doing something wrong here creating a paving/class material legend with images doesn't seem to work properly. The hatch images in the attached document only show a background color and not the actual hatch. How are we supposed to create a material legend - as requested by building plan checkers across the united states? Can someone tell us how this is supposed to be done in Vectorworks? I've been using this software for 20 years now and there still isn't any reasonable way, as far as I can tell, to create a hardscape legend. hatches not working in worksheet.vwx
