  1. File deleted on overwrite. At times when I overwrite a file on my company network, the file is deleted and I then I get "failure on attempt to open file". The original file is deleted. I remember having a similar problem several years ago but don't how IT resolved it in that company. Any ideas as how to fix the problem?
  2. Submitted a bug report. Hopefully they can resolve this it helps with data management when exported. Tom
  3. I found that if I type or paste directly into the cell it will export the complete info but if I do it by referencing another cell (ie: =A4 or =('Worksheet-1':A2)) then I can see the info correctly in the worksheet. When I export it to a txt file then it only exports the first 9 digits or letters. Thanks, Tom
  4. When I make a worksheet and export it (.txt), if the data width was 9 digits or less I can not ever in that drawing change it to say 18 digits everything is fine except the exported txt file will only have the first 9 digits. Does anyone know how to change this to have the 18 digits in the txt file? Thanks Tom Arch 2012 sp5 Win 7 8gb 64 bit
  5. I don't know what else you have done but I click on the background and select none for the pen before doing the same to the fill. Hope this helps Tom
  6. Thank You Thank You This would have been driving me crazy but, I'm already there, so I was just frustrated. When I get all the pieces of this together I will put it up for anyone intersted. Thanks again Tom
  7. Pat, When I put in valid Record, Field, & Field Data I get a Handle value in debug but it comes up with "Warning: Symbol definition handle not valid." and the message box diplays "7:46:38 AM Symbol Def Name is:". I'm sorry but I still seem to be missing something. Procedure Test; {$DEBUG} Var H1:Handle; Procedure DoIt(H2:Handle); Begin Message(Date(2,2),' Symbol Def Name is: ',GetSDName(H2)); End; Begin ForEachObject(DoIt, 'Display'.'Order'='ADNDI'); End; Run(Test); Thank You for your time and help on this, Tom
  8. Thank you for your help. I have a symbol with a field existing in the record. I am trying to get a handle (or symbol name)for the symbol using the string that exists in it's field. The sample code I put up, I was hoping to claify what I was trying to do. I can get the handle if I use SelectObject I am trying to do it with out selecting each object then deselting it. Thanks you for your comments on this. Tom
  9. Hi, I have been going crazy trying to get an Oject name associated to a field value. I used something similar to the Select object comment to get the handle then get name for something else but I can not get "ObjectNameA" from field value 'ADNDI'. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Procedure tryScript; {$DEBUG} VAR h : HANDLE; x, ObjectNameA : STRING; BEGIN x := 'ADNDI'; ObjectNameA := 'ADN 22x28 Wall'; {Record name = various} {field name =' '. 'Order'} {field value = 'ADNDI'} {SelectObj(INSYMBOL & (N = (' '.'Order'=x)));} h := GetObject( ObjectNameA ); ObjectNameA := GetName( h ); Message ( GetSDName(h) ); END; RUN (tryScript); ThankYou Tom
  10. Thanks I found I should have posted this on DWG forum and not here. I did see where this problem was known for 12.5.3 Thanks again Tom Intel Dual Core 3.16ghz 4gb RAM XP pro x64 PC sp2 Vectorworks Fundamental 12.5.3 (80532)
  11. Hi, Has any one had a prolem importing a DWG drawing into Vectorworks 12.5.3 in a 64 bit PC? The files work fine when I do it on a smaller 32 bit machine, but I when I do it on the 64 bit OS it sayes that I have insufficient memory. ie: 42976 k additional memory must be available to import this file. this is just an estimate...larger. This is the first import I have tried using the 64 bit system, everything else works fine. Is this a compatibility problem with 64 bit and vs 12.5.3? Thank you, Tom Intel dual core 3.16ghz 4gb RAM XP pro x64 PC sp2 Vectorworks Fundamental 12.5.3 (80532)
  12. Has anyone had any experience with a "ATI 100-505564 FirePro V3700 256MB PCI Express 2.0 x16 Workstation Video Card " we are looking toward as a possible upgrade card. Thank you for any input. Tom
  13. I have when I have made a change that requires it. You can always go back to windows filemanager and change it. Tom
  14. have you tried just replacing the workspace from backup before reinstalling, I find this normally fixes a lot of little things. Tom
  15. John, If fill out the info request someone from sales will contact you to find out what you need and send it to you or set up for you to download a 30 day version. Tom
  16. Allison, You know when you have a symbol on the drawing if you press ctrl K U you can edit just that one item and it is not a symbol so you just group it after you are done. Hope this helps you. Tom
  17. When it changes the mapping I thought it changed to what you have as a default font. I have arial as default on this drawing and it maps to it. Tom
  18. I tried your script and running around 9% the script spiked to 50% on one processor for an instant (had to do it several times to catch it) then returned to under 9%. I have a PC not a MAC but I hope this helps. Tom
  19. I have not been able to do it in VW, I use Illustrator and can do it easy. Tom
  20. I use control alt V and it pastes in the original position unless you have a different number of pages. Also if you just paste from one to another drawing it defaults to the origin of the drawing. Tom
  21. When I go to the font file in Windows I can copy delete or what ever. I didn't think you could use a windows font in a Mac or visa versa. Hope this helps
  22. What is your OS? In windows you can get it from the font file.
  23. Jody; When I have text in CS3 example white tex. I make the background transparent then change the color of the text to 1% black. I save it as a PNG, then import it to VW as PNG my file sizes stay small and I do not have a problem with subtracting the holes. EPS will import also the same way if the larger file size is ok. Tom
  24. I have been exporting to Illustrator for a long time, now our office switched to CS3 and my files will not open corectly in Illustrator. Is 12.5.3 EPS format compatable to CS3? Thank you, Tom
  25. What version of Vw are you using and what OS? This has been a problem in the pastw/ v12. Tom
