    Seems to work fine for me, even with an open polygon. Are you sure you are 1) Selecting symbol first, then going to AEC>TILE? 2) Using a polygon as opposed to a polyline (you can convert a polyline to a polygon with the TOOL>CONVERT TO POLYGON command). Hmm...

    I think i needed to convert the polyline to polygon, but it was taking to long to tile the stone pattern. maybe it is my machine?

    thanks Peter

  2. I'm trying to use the Tile command, but i can't produce the results of the example on page 9-7 (architect). if i draw a rectangle the command works, but if i drawn a polygon like the sample it will not work?

    the symbols of the stone veneer was exactly what i was looking for! it would be great if i could figure out how to use it!

    If you don't use colors in your drawings, as we do not, there is a slick way of doing exactly what you want.

    Activate the document preference for "Use Layer Colors", create a layer link as you have done, and in the "Layers" dialog, set the line color of the layer your link is on to whatever shade of grey you like.

    We do this with excellent results. We have our "Base Plan" layer set to black lines and grey fill, and our "Screened Base" layer (the linked layer) set to grey lines and white fill.

    For the Floor Plan sheet we display the "Base Plan" Layer. For our Foundation Plan, Framing plan, Electrical Plan sheets we display the "Screened Base" layer.

    Once you are using layer colors however, you cannot set individual colors in you drawing. So if you draft a la autocad, with many colors displaying in your drawing, this technique is not for you.

    You can , of course, toggle "Use Layer Colors" on and off to get around this. (i.e. draft in color, then switch to layer colors when you print)

    i have sent up the drawing using the above method, but now the solid fills that are in the viewport annotation disappear.

    David, in the past all of the libraries were automatically loaded into the RB. There got to be too many! Now you can choose which ones you want to be there by going to: RB>FILES & FOLDERS>ADD NEW FAVORITE. Then navigate to the VW 11.5 folder>Object Lib's and then choose which library to add. HTH's

    Thanks Peter! [smile]

    I checked out the Walcom webpage. I will have to think about this!... Thanks [Cool]
