    Door ID Tag Text Size

    Set your Design Layer to a scale more or less matching your viewports. IAC not 1:1. I use as my standard scale for most of my project 1:50 in the Design Layers now the scale factor to my viewports is not too huge to get all nasty moving of of text and other ill effects.

    Font Preview

    It would be nice, however, this is not (in the humblest of my opinions) Vectorworks core business.

    Measure box doesnt show up?

    I don't see the sprocket in the rightside of the option bar, but there you will find the extra fields to show: If the sprocket doesn't show you can switch it on by going to the menu in the triangle in the same bar. Regards, Gerard

    Snap to midpoint question

    You are absolutely not alone. Not tablet related, it is also a problem if you use a mouse It used to be the centre point seeming more to the front so it would snap better.
  5. Great request!! Or maybe even without going in to edit crop mode just holding Option (alt) and Spacebar and dragging the Selection cursor?
  6. There is a little tool called "Hide Class". Install it in your Vectorworks. Then click on objects who's class you want to hide. Then all those classes are hidden. To show them again you option click in the Organze: Classes window on the column with the eye. If you really want to use that single class Idea then you could quite easily change the script and replace "getclasse" and "Hideclass" lines with SetClass(h,'00_off'); Have fun Hide Class.vst

    Auto zoom between design and sheet layers

    Why would you draw on a Design Layer set to 1:1. Of course, what you draw is 1:1 but I have the display scale of the Design Layer in the middle of the range of scales I mostly use. That way the corrections for hatches and text is limited meaning text will not move too far away.

    Boolean tick for further inputs

    Oh, then I understood the question wrong: This was going to be my answer: if Pusewallh then begin end; EnableParameter(ghParm,'hoogtew',not Pusewallh);

    Next Object in Selection

    BTW You do know there is an Align function, don't you? Menu Bar: Modify: Align: Align/Distribute. Or you could perhaps use Menu Bar: Edit: Duplicate Along Path...

    Next Object in Selection

    There is no Super-Selected state. An object is either selected or not. I don't think you can traverse through a list of selected objects by script AND change the focus of the OIP to the next object.

    Next Object in Selection

    I don't think you can traverse through a list of selected objects by script AND change the focus of the OIP to the next object. I had to have only one object selected, having the others deselected would mean the script would then also slect objects that were not of interest so that is why I had him isolate the problem. That would be the right answer if Mark was editing Record fields: - Menubar: Tools: Report: Create Report... - have it list object with a certain record - Add the fields of interest The worksheet also uses the stacking order (unless you sort the columns) You can not paste directly from the clipboard to multiple cells, unless you first copy the value of one cell. Unfortunately Mark is editing the Y values and you can't change those through the worksheet.

    Next Object in Selection

    I think you should: 0: move your objects to an empty layer and Deselect all. 1: Run your first script: setselect(factlayer); 2: Do your thing 3: Run the second script: setselect(nextobj(fsactlayer)); setdselect(fsactlayer); 4: Do your thing 5: repeat steps 3 and 4 until you reach the last object. 6: Bring every thing back to the original layer Explanation: setselect(factlayer); Selects the First Object on the active layer; setselect(nextobj(fsactlayer)); Selects the next object from the First Selected Object {Don't miss the "S" here} setdselect(fsactlayer); Deselects the First Selected Object, there for, in the next run, the object that was the next object will now be First Selected Object.
  13. Hi Will, I added multi Layer support. Just found out in VW 2018: You only need to use my Check Solids command if you edit your symbols by double clicking them in the layer. If you edit your symbols through the Resource manager it will update all solids using that symbol. I noticed I'm using a top down search in this script. Normally I would start factlayer (first object on active layer) to start a search, but I used Lactlayer. That means checking solids will change the stacking order. If you change the stacking order you have to be careful using ForEachobject-xxxx calls as they also run from first to last. If each object you check is placed at the end of the list you may never stop, unless you build in an extra check for that. A simple handle check might be enough, but needs testing. Check_Solids.vsm.zip Have fun, Gerard
  14. "intact" indeed refers to "impossible to compute". It was a problem that I ran into a lot when changing form VW version 2009 to 2010 (I think it was) So I included that warning. There is a ResetObject(h); function you can call. However, it didn't do what I expected it to do when I wrote the script. It might now. Checking solids inside symbols that might be using other symbols.... It hadn't occurred to me one might want that. The number of layers is hardly an issue, most time goes into the shear number of objects to check.
  15. @Matt Panzer Thank you! (old dog, new tricks...)
