  1. Though I haven't used VWLM 9.5 too much yet,I will throw my 2 cents in here. I have found the Plant tool along with the ID tool to be very cumbersome.First I had to make a tree symbol from an existing symbol then make a record then put the record in the Plant Database then put it in the Project plant list then attach to a symbol correctly (being careful to get rid of the old symbols record which has been quite confusing) then make an appropriate ID Tool symbol and place it in the right place (actually havn't been able to figure this out yet) run the script etc. Then finally place some plant symbols which have to only be from the correct database. Then try to label........ All in all it so far has been way to difficult to get right. I mean to get everything in the form I need for my drawings. FOr example the ID Label has to be a certain way and even though it is a very simple design the process of making the label and getting it work right is way too complicated in my opinion. I suppose once everything is set up it may be useful but so far I have not had the spare time, which I think will be considerable, to get everything set up. So as a wish list item. I would ask that there be less steps, clearer documentation and generally easier way to automate the Place plan tool. But as I havn't used VW much since 8.5 I find the improvements in VW's general ease of use and stability to be much better. Crashes have been petty rare so far though lot of non-fatal stalls . Thank
  2. Speaking of the ID tool DOes anyone know how to get the tool to use a specific Font. I have been able to get almost every other aspect of Plant mangement to work with Japanese Text except the ID Tool. I was unable to find an explanantion of how to get the Tool to use a certain Font, it persists at using an English only Font so Japanese Text comes out garbage. WInXP PRo Eng. VWLM 9.5 Thanks Steve
  3. Export Simple Vectroscript works best. You have to add the command to your workspace via the Workspace editor. I have found this better than DXF the few times I tried it. HTH ------------------ STeve Okinawa,Japan
