  1. I'm not sure exactly, but you should be able to send 'system' commands, and run scripts using the system. I'm still not fully researched this, but it was related to the SSL:CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED error. Essentially, you need to install a symlink to the system's certificates into the SLL of the Python you are using (Vectorworks') I don't know exactly yet, but I have this URL saved for further investigation: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35569042/ssl-certificate-verify-failed-with-python3 and this code snippet: import os import certifi import ssl openssl_dir, openssl_cafile = os.path.split(ssl.get_default_verify_paths().openssl_cafile) os.chdir(openssl_dir) relpath_to_certifi_cafile = os.path.relpath(certifi.where()) print("delete: "+openssl_cafile) print("sym link") print(" src="+relpath_to_certifi_cafile) print(" dst="+openssl_cafile) and this code for testing, where it was failing due to the error mentioned above: import urllib.request requestURL = urllib.request.Request( "https://www.vectorworks.net/cached/themes/vectorworks_redesign_2018/assets/images/logos/vw-logo-full.svg", headers={'User-Agent' : "Magic Browser"} ) response = urllib.request.urlopen( requestURL )
  2. Hi @JoeBayLD, Unfortunately, Vectorworks 2020 python cannot be updated as it is a major change with lot of risk. is this a SSL:CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED ? if so, then there is a way to create shortcuts in the python of vectorworks to add access to certificates.
  3. Hi @Carol - Design Express This is next on our lists to do. Regards, Vlado
  4. @MSLD Well, we always see to convert over when we change things. So please, don't hesitate to use it at its full capabilities. You can get really nice results. As for help, click F1 on the Define Tag Field dialog, it leads here: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FAnnotation%2FCreating_data_tag_styles.htm%23CSH_41 The collapsed parameters on #8 is talking about the field definition syntax.
  5. @MSLD the formula you should use for this is: "Too Large"@#AREA#>100sq m:"Too small" As @TDimov said, the data tag condition expression is: <Value_If_True>@<The_Condition>:<Value_If_False> Note, you have to be careful with the spaces around the condition, it does not expect any spaces. It is known problem that the Data Tag uses its own syntax for the formulas. It's at the top of our list to make it use Worksheet formulas in the future.
  6. FYI, the. Vectorworks plugins are not signed. The problem is that when you download a zip on the new Mac OS, it automatically get quarantined, so nothing you unzip from it would work, unless you de-quarantene the zip itself on your side before unzipping. Of course, waiting for SP2 would work, and it will be (is already) fixed there.
  7. Yeah, you have to de-quarantine the zip file, before unzipping. Use the terminal to do that: xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Users/vstanev/Downloads/LandscapeIrrigation.vwlibrary.zip xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Users/vstanev/Downloads/LandscapeIrrigation.vwlibrary.zip Change the path to the zip as you have it on disk. Also, pease make a duplicate of the original file before overriding. I'm not sure what do you mean in 'no hope in switching'? Can you clarify? It is OS independent bug, and i'm trying to help you by sending the file directly as I was under the impression you are on the mac.
  8. @Luciole Design we found it and it's a bug. It will be fixed for SP2. if there is anyone else struggling with this, please let me know.
  9. Hi @Luciole Design, is it possible to send me the crash log? That's the text when you click on the 'report' button after you get the crash. You can just dump paste it in a text file and send it over: vstanev@vectorworks.net Thank you.
  10. Hi @jeff prince, Please report each case where you see crashes and/or problem, we're actively trying to make the software more stable and reports like this are valuable. I'm sorry to hear that, and I understand your pain. I can assure that we're striving to improve the software, and you can imagine there are many ways it can be improved. There are many people with many wishes about many areas of Vectorworks, and they are all important. We are doing our best to log and generalize the wishes and then to prioritize them all in order for the engineering to focus on. So, please don't give up. We do appreciate user input, especially if it a well thought out and described workflow that needs to be added or improved. This helps us understand, prioritize, and eventually implement it. Regards, Vlado
  11. Hi @jeff prince, Thank you for your comments. This feature is dedicated to access various data from ESRI, not just maps, but for that you need to login into their Services. Depending on the region, they might have more detailed satelite images. Can you please elaborate on this? We're looking for ways to improve this. You can send me workflow videos or screen capture directly at vstanev@vectorworks.net Regards, Vlado
  12. Hi @Ben Beaumont, can you define the request? What file format is this? I guess it contains geographical information, and the goal is to place it properly, right?
  13. Yes, Vectorworks 2021 uses Python version: 3.8.2
  14. Hi @Aspect_Design, unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment. Please enter it as a Jira bug so we can make it work. The Properly Line has the 'Segment Record' format record attached to object inside, which allows you to report the segments in a worksheet. Also, there is a 'Curved Segment Record' one too. Regards, Vlado
  15. @P Retondoi'll add this information to an enhancement request, so it is considered for the future improvements in the area. Thank you very much, examples and workflow definitions always help
