  1. 1. can I select something across all layers.. 2. can I merge to classes.. 3. is it possible to select objects with two dissimilar properties like I want to select all rectangles which are red in color and green in color toger...
  2. I use the US version, I couldn't find the number stamp tool in the workspace editor, I tried everywhere. I use the architect version, not the renderworks version, can that be a problem. In the help section it says call tool selector as -229 please help

    hey I was successful with the first part of the project, I mean hide and show solved my problem. now the second part, can I click a rectangle and activate a script...that would solve all my problem, expecting help
  4. you can change the pattern also ...by going to set attribute defaults, but you can't change the scale ..it is dependent on the layer scale...

    I am quite new to the world of VS, so advise accordingly. Let's assume I have 10 classes named 1-10. I have 4 rectangle in my drawing, if I click the first one, i want class 2 and 3 to be deactivated and class one to stay active and when I click the second rectangle say class 1 and 3 would be deactivated and 2 be active ...etc etc so on. just how a web page or a flash stuff works. is it possible please advise ?
  6. where is it ? I mean how do I get to that ?
  7. I use vectorworks architect.I have made a symbol for a switch board..Now I want to name them as SB-01, SB-02...etc etc Is there any shortcut method, so that Auto numering can happen, please advise.

    I think, Nemetschek should buy it and add it in the next version. I feel that individual property changing of HATCH should also be there. that is like autocad , after applying the same hatch to two different rectangle, i should be able to change the scale of them.
  9. Hey archoncad, YA it works great, I mean the script window.. Does the script window only create scripts, with custom selection or I can make something else also...say for example,to be simple whenever I click this script the object selected before that woud move by 6" etc . I mean if I can do it , it would be wonderful. If yws How do I get it there...
  10. Hi, the script concept looks great and I feel by writing script I can save a lot of my effort. But I am quite new to vectorworks, can you please tell me where should I write the script. I mean how should I do the selection script so that I can click that Icon and do the selection everytime.
  11. 1. How can I do custom selection for objects whose line weight is anything between 6-12 excepting them. I am unable to do it. 2. can I do custom selection with more than one rule, say can I choose all the rectangle which have black fill and line thickness 6. Please advise
  12. ya, it is a very desired character. Anyday VW is much superior to AutoCad , but it would be great if it can the match layer control qualities, then nothing could be better.
  13. I joined this new office and I wanted to convert everybody to vectorworks, where they were using AC for last 6-8 years. I had a big headache converting them as they were expecting Vectorworks as AUTOCAD -2020 version, with all older features, as AutoCad. THe trouble I had to go through was to first making them believe that treat it as a new software not as a substitute of Autocad. Now within 6 weeks these guys are so much in love with VW , that they don't even look at Autocad. Try it and see the result.
  14. what jan 15 suggests is what I think is what I have to do. Katie the problem with your suggestion is that when I will scale it the circle won't expand with respect to the centre but would rather move. jfmarch your suggestion should ideally be there in-built the vectorwork, as it is there in AutoCad. I mean when I select more than one object with more than one similar property they should be ideally editable together. LIke if I select two circle with similar radius I should be able to edit them together,and two circle with different radius and same centre should be editable together, with respect to the centre.
