  1. Hi, I am trying Understand Plant Symbols and their behaviour with Classes. Some of the default plant symbols I am using retain the colour for class 'None' even though I am choosing 'Colour by Class Style' in the attributes palette. I have examined the symbol via edit and all objects withing the symbol appear to be on layer 'None'. So I would have expected ALL objects within the symbol to either change or NOT change, not just some. Is there some further reading that I can do to understand these plant symbols? cheers toonie

    massed plants to "drifts"

    Hi, You answered an earlier question of another user regarding the changing of massed plants to look like single drifts. Thanks for the solution, i.e. "Look at the Set Plant Style command. If you choose "No Sketch" and enable styling on a plant group, it will be "merged" if the circles are overlapping." However the merging is inconsistent and varies and I am finding that it depends on the symbol used (correct?). I have spent some time trying to determine what differences are causing the overlap to occur or NOT occur but cant figure it out. Can you help? thanks

    2 worksheet questions

    I am creating worksheets that contain Height and Spread values and have 2 querys. Query 1. The Height is appearing OK...thanks to your help on my last issue [smile] However I am expecting the Spread value on the Define Plant dialog to be displayed but am seeing the Spread that is displayed on the Set Plant Tool Options. Select the Plant Settings button and the Spread that is displayed in the Set Default Plant Tool Options dialog is the one populated in the worksheet. FYI the header used is: ='plant record'.spread The end game for me is to show a worksheet with the spread and height from the Define Plant dialog. Query 2. Ideally i would prefer to show the height and spread ranges from the Plant Reference DB. Can you help with the worksheet header values for these attributes? thanks again for your help toonie

    how to display plant list values

    thanks, you wouldnt beleive how long i spent looking through the help and playing arounf with VW. How about the other issue regarding the Spread value? I am expecting the value on the Define Plant dialog to be displayed but get the Spread that is displayed on the Set Plant Tool Options. Select the Plant Settings button and the Spread that is displayed in the Set Default Plant Tool Options dialog is the one populated in the worksheet. FYI the header used is: ='plant record'.spread The end game for me is to show a worksheet with the spread and height from the Define Plant dialog. and ideally i would prefer to show the height and spread ranges from the Plant Reference DB (cant seem to work out the header value for that one) thanks again for your help toonie [ 12-22-2004, 05:53 AM: Message edited by: toonau69 ]
  7. howdy, i want to add more colums to the supplied plant lists i understand that you set the parameters in the header part of the table but for some reason i seem to be getting things wrong Specifically i want to display the Appearance Height and Spread from the Define Plant dialog in the plant list. What I keep getting is: 1. The Spread value shown on the Set Plant Tool Options (ass oppossed to the Spread shown on the Define Plant dialog) multiplied by the plant quantity. 2. The Appearance Height value shown on the Define Plant dialog multiplied by the plant quantity. My header values must be incorrectly defined. Maybe my approach is all wrong! thankyou -toonie austy
