  1. Thanks , I often use that powerfull feature who is edit device in worksheet πŸ™‚ But the reason of that post is : Because I'm new on VWX and CCD , I constantly learn new stuff and have a better understanding of optimizing workflow ... (and I hope I will learn for a long time πŸ˜‰ ) So at the begining I drew some stuff of my warehouse, with picture, police colors... and export it After few drawings I noticed that I often use device connected in the same way, so I search a way to save it already connected and by the way import they alreday connected ... But some device wasn't well built (not the same grid settings/ not the same size/ color /picture size ...) So it doesnt really matter and I updated they on the way , when i need it ... But when I use connected devices (save as symbols/group) the corrections (update) wasn't there . I, now, understand why, And I'm still looking forward to have an organised work and a correlation between drawings I think the "better" way is to write all the modification I've to do , and one day update all at a time ... But you know what ??? I never have time ... πŸ™‚πŸ€£πŸ™ƒ I also have question about new 2022 feature (linked equiipment and spotlite device) but this is for another post ... Hope you understand my "vision" and Hope help you to involve that great sofware πŸ˜‰
  2. Thanks !!! I hope I'dont hurt anyone , If i do it, please, put that on language problems and THANKS to everyone ho take time to help me πŸ™‚ Ok I understand the difference between group and symbols What i'm looking for is : in your example : Before connect the device, save it , eport it in shared folder , do the same for the second one . Import from shared folder the two device, connect it save as symbol/group modify device 1 and import the symbol/group, I want that the symbol 1 in symbol/group is the symbol 1 modified ... but it doesn't work ... In french we say : "Je veux le beurre et l'argent du beurre" I want all the device alone /and connected , and when I modify one device who are saved connected with other, it import the modify device ... thanks for your time πŸ™‚ 2021-12-01 11-44-27.mkv
  3. Ok but why the links doesnt exist just before I place it on the drawing? I understand that device who are already in my drawings are not updated , (and this is not what I want , for that the new option in v22 who you tell me is perfect πŸ˜‰ ) but If I put it back in my drawing why , they don't take the updated device ... Writing that words, I think I understand, but I'm affraid that there is no way to do what I want, or maybe another way without pass thru symbol who creat new objects...
  4. Hello Nikolay , thanks for Answer ! I understand but have some questions . So @Pat Stanford isn't totally true, with that method I've "copy of symbols with their own graphics " in the same position And what @Dendecko said isn't true in my case because the symbols are converted in group of object ... I don't really understand because , if their was simple object, the links were brokes , and they are not , wire are still wire socket are still socket ... And if they are object where are they ? May I am on the wrong way... I "only" want to have group of symbols as devise connected with wire (with class, length ...) the ability to use it back in different drawings AND because drawings are in perpetual evolution, AND because I understand som new stuff everytime , and update my device and save them in shared folder , It make sens if the group of connected devices are linked to the devices I used to build them and updated at the next insertion πŸ™‚ I hope you understand what I'm looking for πŸ™‚ Thanks everobody Ps: I'm in touch with french support , and will report feedback here.
  5. here is a video who lets show my problem In the vidΓ©o I put two wymbols, (internet222) connect it together , creatye a symbol and convert to group (sorry I wasn't sure that the option was ticked so I cancel and do it back ...) I select taht group of symbool import it, > everything is ok ... So I modify the symbols (internet 222) import back the group of symbols made with internet222 symbols but the symbol insid the group wasn't change ... Can you explain me why ? thanks 2021-11-26 10-22-31.mkv
  6. Hello I'm using connect cad and spotlight, In the connectcad start up guide they say to put the grid size to 4mm. So I drew all my symbol in the connectcad template who is with a grid size at 4mm. But Now I draw my schematic diagram in spotlite file who have not the same grid size, that's why (I think ) I have problem with wire, because my connector arent always on the grid ... So what settings you think I must sert ? 5mm ? woh is a multiple of 10 100 1000 (I draw in spotlite in m/cm) And Have I to edit all my symbols with that grid settings to above problems ? Thanks a lot
  7. Hello thanks for answer πŸ˜‰ It make sens now πŸ˜‰ But I've another question : I work with shared folder, and build my own library So I create a symbol , convert it to group as you can see below After that I export it to my shared folder ... the question is: what are the symbols "reference" of the group of symbols ? That group was made with my symbols from my shared folder but If I modified one of them, and them import back my "group^" of symbol, there are no change ... May my workflow /organisation isn't good.. For now, when I've chnage to do on my symbol instance , I edit it, , save it, export it and replace the old instance in my sahred folder (for futur use...) But I want that my group of symbol relate that change too ... I don't understand from where comes the instance of symbol in my group of symbols ... Thank you so much (hope you understand me, if not feel free to ask me πŸ˜‰ )
  8. I have annoter question : With that process, if i update one of the symbols, it will be updated in the groupe too ? For example if in change the ptz symbol, all the ptz in the group will be updated too ? Thanks
  9. Nice this is exactly what I'm looking for !!! many thanks !!!
  10. Hello I often use the same symbols pluged in the same way ... Is a way to export groups of symbols In other software, I can save only the selected stuff, and merge that file in new one . What is the better way tu re-use group of symbols in new file ? For example if i would import all the symbols attached below (ptz+ splitter+wire +...) Thanks
  11. Hello in VWX 2021 helps I can read : But when I right click on the drawing i can't find "Create Data Visualization Legend" where I'm wrong Thanks !

  21. my mistake , esc key is working for unselect... and X key is the shortcut for the "select tool" i'll use esc key for unselecting without changing tool πŸ˜‰
  22. Hello I think there is a reason for X key is the shortcut for unselect , but I don't really like it , especially with the text tool , or when I'm in the paramater of a n objet ... With the text tool ,I've to push esc because, often it writes X ... And I often "accidentatly" change the object name to X ... Is a way to use esc key for unselect shortcut ? or maybe is a wrong idea ? if so why ? Thanks for your feedback
