  1. Alan, I was using this but it was not working because I had the graphic attribute was set to class for the walk line and apparently this does not follow the class markers properly. I overrode this setting and it works fine now. The request above was to tie the class setting markers to the stair walk line which is currently not the case.
  2. With the help of Paxar this one is solved. The class definition was interfering with the stair walk line in the Graphics tab for the stair. The start and end markers have to be set separately for this to work properly as they do not correspond to the markers in the class definition.
  3. I was just thinking that in the class definition the two markers could be labeled (and act as) start and end and could correspond to those for the walk line. This would perhaps be more consistent behaviour - currently I have to override the stair walk line markers to get them to point in the right direction.
  4. The ability in Vectorworks to calculate the effective R-value of parallel items within components would be great. However, in my example the lambda of component 4 is calculated to take this into account and so the total would be correct. I'm just asking for the total to be displayed in this location. It would be nice to have air films included in some way too but I consider these to be a "fudge-factor" to review in case I am very close to the required values.
  5. Can we have a total R-value within the wall style dialog box please?
  6. I use a 4" high outer component to a wall as a base which I show in 3D but not in 2D using class visibility. When I turn on the "hide details" toggle in 2D the wall does not respect the width of the wall with the base class turned off. I suspect this is by design as the graphic is likely for the entire wall but it is not expected.

  8. It would be great if the site model could have different units than the file. We often design buildings in imperial (file units) but have to work in metric for site purposes. Dual units for the stake object would also be great.
  9. For the table and chairs tool, I would like the ability to enter a value for the amount of offset the chairs are from the centre of the table. I like to show the chairs outside of the table to get a better sense of the room they take up in real life. Also, the ability to not have chairs on one side only and an option for a round table with chairs spaced around it.
  10. It would be nice if palettes could have multiple instances. This way you could, for example, display your list of classes in one instance and your list of layers in another. Or you could show the shape tab of the OIP and the render tab at the same time.
  11. It would be great if this tool had some additional features: 1. Ability to add more than 4 ID symbols 2. Ability to have more customization of markers 3. Ability to use in section 4. Ability to rename the ID I am using this tool for tagging walls - have not used it for other objects yet.
  12. Pat, thanks for taking the time to help with this! Much appreciated.
  13. I assume that the formula in column H should be =IF(G4,0,D4/Value(F4)). Still does not work for me however. I think IF is broken. Does not work for me in 2017 either.
  14. Thank Pat. This did work. The next roadblock seems to be getting rid of a division by zero error. I tried using an IF statement to check the denominator for zero, and then use zero instead of the D4/value(F4) =IF((VALUE(F4)=0), '0', (D4/VALUE(F4))) but it behaves strangely or does not substitute a zero for the error. On a different version of the same worksheet I used the criteria to get rid of the objects with a zero factor but if I want to show this object as zero persons in the calculation I cannot get it to work.
  15. I think the problem is that the factor column is not taken as a number but perhaps text.
