  1. Yes, but to be honest, I've watched so many videos and gone through so many tutorials, It's all kind of of blurring in to one big mass, some of it at times seems to be contradictory. I don't know how the overlapping occurs. It just happened again. I'll have to keep an eye out for exactly how that happens. I think I do want that information to be project based. When I create a design iteration, it's in a different file. I copy, paste, and rename the file with a suffix Dx. This is my way of keeping unmolested records. I don't know how I'm going to work with revision data yet. Currently revisions are by sheet and I'm just placing text over the titleblock. This has got to change, but as of yet, I'm not sure how. As stated before, It looks like I'm going to have a unique TitleBlockBorderStyle for each different sheet size. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  2. Worked a bit more on it today. I think I'm finally gaining an understanding of all this... Thanks, Rudy Beuc Standard Title Blocks RBeuc.vwx
  3. Dug into the attaching data bit tonight. Please understand I've been trying to digest and understand alot of information from various sources during this process. So the P_FieldName format is pre 2018? What's it now? Does project data, and sheet data, have to be manipulated from a select number of tools? Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  4. So I tried again tonight. I think I made some progress but am still quite frustrated. Attached is the file I'm working with. Also attached is a screenshot video of my current issue. I've figured that I'm just going to have a separate style for each page size. I've got a 24" x 36" size completed, I think. However, the titlebolck manager will not recognize the custom project fields I've included. What's going wrong now? Tired and going to bed, Thanks, Rudy Beuc 2022-01-20 22-02-09.mp4 Standard Title Blocks RBeuc.vwx
  5. But then wouldn't the border graphics be integral to the titleblock symbol? Not the "TitleBlock Border"? How would fit to printable area work then? Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  6. Yes, this appears to be what I have to do. I also want to use my own sheet border. One that my office has been using for years. It doesn't seem possible for me to have custom graphics for the "Title Block Border", so It also seems I'm going to have to completely forgo using the "Title Block Border Tool" for now. Hopefully new versions will have increased capabilities for border and titleblock graphics and related customizations. In the attached screenshot my title block and border are 2 different 2d symbols. The titleblock has text currently linked to records. I'm in the process of converting my practice from Revit to Vectorworks. In my previous workflow, I could control the visibility individual objects within a family (symbol or plug in in VW) with a yes/no parameter. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  7. Ok, the title block is a 2d symbol before it gets inserted into a border. I'm wondering if there is a way to have Marionette control the opacity/transparency of select objects within the symbol thereby imparting an On Off function. But perhaps, the class option is the path of least resistance.... Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  8. I'm creating a titleblock. I'd like to have the ability to control the visibility of preliminary stamps, seal, and other information via a checkbox in the Object Info Palette, or perhaps via a project setting. I guess I can do this with separate classes for each object but would I prefer to keep the number of classes within a project to a minimum. Is there any way to accomplish this? Do I have to do it via marionette? If so, how to I attach a marionette routine to an existing graphic? Thanks beforehand, Rudy Beuc
  9. Within VectorWorks, how is font height measured? Is it capitalization height, capitalization + ascender, or ascender+ capitalization + ascender? Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  10. Ok, way after beer:30. After a lot of hit and miss, trial and error, drilling down, ect...., it seems that one of the site modifiers became corrupt or whatever. Maybe during the project upgrade from 2021 to 2022. After erasing the offending modifier, everything seems to work as intended. Why, I don't know.. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  11. I'm having a problem. I have a site model. It has modifiers attached to it defining roads, sidewalks, new contours, ect... When I go and try to change the class it sits on, the material, or texture, defining the surface gets changed. Why is this happening? There is no texture or material assigned to that class. Please see attached video. Thanks, Rudy Beuc 2021-09-30 23-11-24.mp4
  12. Zoomer, I was hoping to translate a project and see that everything came over halfway OK, and learn from it. Not much came over OK. I was wondering if there was something I may have missed. Looks like Revit projects can't be directly imported into VW. Maybe it has to be done in pieces, I don't know. It wasn't a large project, It was a house. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  13. Ok, I'm a single person frim and I do all my own drafting. I'm working in Revit and in the process of migrating to VW. It's primarily do to subscription only licensing choices provided by a certain software vendor, but that's another issue. I also know of some other firms who are looking for alternative due to the same issue. But anyway.... I need to learn and establish workflows, customization, and so forth. So I think, "Ok, I've got a blank spot in my schedule, lets try this out". This way I'll learn stuff, get some customization done, and move forward. Besides, it would be great to be able to open up my past work in the current software. Yesterday afternoon I tried to convert a copy of a recent project. My workstation ran all night. Well, the results are not as expected. I don't think I can use any of it to move forward. Nothing like it seemed in all the videos I've seen so far. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  14. Just tried to convert a whole Revit project file. Did not come out as expected. Anybody else try this? Any tips? Thanks, Rudy Beuc
