    Batch selection of all elements in a class

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm going to give the magic wand tool a try. I've never found an actual use for it before so it might be exactly what I need!
  2. Hi all. I'm wondering if there is a simple vector script that will allow me to batch select everything in a file (on a layer) with the same class. I know that this can be done manually using the 'Custom Selection' command from the menus. In a perfect world, this would be a script that would then allow me to choose the class after making the command. Thanks in advance!

    PDF Font Issues since upgrade

    I am definitely having the same problem. This is what Tekton Pro looks like when it is exported to .pdf. I would really like an explanation/solution since my client prefers this font and the rasterized version is fugly
  5. H. Hope someone can help me with this. I'm hoping that there is a way to select multiple objects on a layer and designate their classes to be invisible. I import a lot of .dwg drawings and would like to hide their classes quickly. Would it be easiest to create a vectorscript for this?

    Revision Cloud Tool Crashes VW2011

    Well, not only did it open but I can also create new clouds with the tool. Do you know what's different about this file?

    Revision Cloud Tool Crashes VW2011

    I have been able to replicate this every single time. New file or old. If BCD is not having the problem, maybe it OSX version 10.6.7
  8. The revision cloud tools causes 2011SP2 to seize. I'm on Mac OSX 10.6.7 - I can replicate every single time I try to use the tool. Every single time. My video driver is NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M I've looked through the message board and it seems that no one else has come across an outright crash like this. I'm hoping someone has a possible solution?
  9. Hi folks, I am having a problem with pasting. I selct multiple obects that are on a lot of different classes. After changing layers and then pasting the elements into another part of the drawing, VW cannot undo that paste. Also, it seems that I have to be careful about what my class options are. If the option is NOT set to show/snap/modify I get into big trouble. I used to be able to simply pase my objects in and then group them while they are still selected. Any tips? Thanks. --------------------------- Running MAC OSX 10.4.4

    Flipped text flips out!!!!

    Has anyone solved the flipped text problem when exporting to .dwg? It's driving me crazy! My soution is to do it manually which is time consuming and doesn't help when using plug-ins such as spotlight. HELP!!!!!!

    Automatic Creation of Polygons

    I tend to agree with Delmer. Since when does a vendor dictate how one uses a program. You might want to do a full re-install to verify that the program isn't fouled

    Unable to crate pdf in 11.5

    I make it a permenant habit of reducing the print quality from 12oo dpi to 300 dpi. This has always helped in the past. Maybe it will help you?

    11.5 Crashing

    I also have also been crashing specifically doing 3D stuff. We have two users that are doing fine using Spotlight continuously, but I am doing the rendering work and crashing/freezing at least once a day. Win XP Pro. VW 11.5.0
  14. OK folks, Here is a problem that is just truly annoying. It is really really great that i can move the data fields around the lighting device. But... If I accidentally drop the 'purpose' inside the fixture, it will anchor itself. When I click on the little x to move it... nada. It seems to me that if any two grips overlap, a problem occurs and I can't move either field. Might this be an issue with 'snapping'?

    Lable Legend help

    Try this... When you are in the edit legend setup area, zoom out so the setup box is very small on the screen. Then use the cmd-a for select all. I am willing to bet that your labels are way, way over to the left of your setup box. Using the select all will put grips around the labels. You can then zoom in on them and either drag them onto your symbol or cut and paste them. This problem has been described in various ways on this help board and every time the folks from Nemetshek will have you believe it's a problem with you or your software. I strongly disagree. It is either a glitch in the code or it has somethoing to do with where your point of origin is on your drawing. Let me know if I'm right.
