  1. No, maybe I'll try them. I was not going to because I understood they required more computing power and could bog thins down, but then I have only about 120 points, so..... Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  2. >>Every software has its own tricks. Best to just accept them and use the software the way it wants to work and not try to force it to work they way something you already know does. That is a sure path to disappointment and anger. 😉<< I get that, but, knowing the differences, or more specifically what's causing the thing not to work as expected is 2/3rd's of the battle. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  3. Ok, that worked. I've switched all the layers to the same scale and everything is working as expected. I've got to keep unified view turned on or else Illogical stuff happens. I'm used to working in another software an all the little different ways VW does things are adding to the learning curve. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  4. So I'm going to model a site. I've shot grade elevations in the field and I'm going to lay out 3d loci in line with the information I've gathered. The 2d information is on one layer, the 3d loci are going to be on their own. Despite all my visibility settings, the 2d information disappears when that layer is not active. What's wrong now? Been spinning my wheels with this for a few hours now... Thanks, Rudy Beuc 2022-05-24 11-54-40.mp4
  5. #$%@#$%.... Now I see it, the Levels Column next to the Stories Column in the Design Layers Tab. Hadn't notices that before... I was running around in circles trying to figure out how to manipulate those assignments within the stories tab and it's nice graphical UI. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  6. Yeah I was able to do the association in the design layers tab, but the resulting associations did not appear in the stories & levels tab. Were you able to achieve this? Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  7. Yes, thankyou. However it seems the only way I can associate a layer with that level is to create a new layer within the level dialogue box. I was trying to associate previous existing layers with those levels. It appears I just can't do that. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  8. Having issues working with layers, levels and stories. Even though I've associated layers with stories in the layers tab of the Organization palate, I can't get then to be recognized in the levels part of the stories tab. I don't know what's going on, been flipping through help files spinning my wheels with this for way too long, and am fed up. What am I missing? Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  9. Sorry, there must be a miscommunication because I don't believe the video demonstrates how to have the callback within the callout markers or section lines. It just shows how do do that in the drawing labels. What I want is to have the callouts and section lines match the drawing labels as I'm able to do in the software I utilize now. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  10. Ok, so the video shows how to have backreferences in the drawing label, but not in the detail callout or section lines linked to those viewports with the labels. My goal is to have the information displayed in the detail callout and section line symbols, exactly like it is in the drawing labels. Therefore the callout and section lines need access to the callback functionality also. Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  11. Ok, just got a workaround by using the Notes Parameter. So, is it possible to create my own parameters for markers, labels and callouts? Thanks, Rudy Beuc
  12. I would like to request that Callout Markers and Elevation/Section lines have access to the back reference parameter just like viewport labels do. Currently I’m making the transition from another BIM authoring software to VectorWorks. Over the past few weeks I’ve been customizing viewport labels, callout markers, and section/elevation lines. I would like them to match the format my office, and family, has been using for decades. Attached is an example of a recent project. Also attached is the last project I hand drafted. The practices I use are the same as my Father and Grandfather utilized. I wish to continue having my detail/section markers and labels match. This provides consistency and helps avoid confusing one section with an unrelated marker. I can do this currently in another BIM software and I wish to continue doing so in VectorWorks.

  13. 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
