  1. Thank you, Pat. I was able to adjust the text size, but the shoulder lines are now far from the text. I tried modify>align> align/distribute leader lines. Do you have any suggestions?

  3. In Landmark 2018, I can't find a way to modify the plant tag text size and orientation for detailed viewports of planting plans. I changed the scale of the detail viewports but the text size looks like it didn't scale down. Also, If I rotate the detailed viewport, is there an easy way to adjust the orientation of the text? Thanks!
  4. I am looking for help in taking me concept drawings to landscape installation drawings, including hardscaping and planting. I am located in Asheville, NC, so plant knowledge of this area is important. I currently use Landmark 2018 on a Mac. Thanks, Terri
  5. I just found out about this issue although I've talked to technical support about problems since I started using VW 2018. I join the other posts in voicing my discontent over this issue. It needs to be resolved ASAP and not in 2019 as I was told this morning. Does anyone use Sketchup for landscape design? Is anyone else considering using Vectorworks 2017 until they resolve this problem? Thanks
  6. Thanks so much, Wesley! I wasn't aware of the visibility tool before.
  7. Is there a way to identify a class used in a referenced dwg file? I used to import dwg files into a separate file, select the classes that I wanted and then import it into a new vw file as a referenced file. This time, I've importing the dwg into a vw file as a referenced file. There are over 100 classes with the many consultants involved. I use Landmark 2018 on a Mac High Sierra. Thank you! Terri
  8. Thanks for the suggestion. What is OIB? It sounds like this has to be set up when placing plants for the first time. Is that correct?
  9. Bryan, Thanks for your response and offer to help me. To clarify, it's not the plant list but the plant tags on the drawing. It's the class that's created automatically with the place plant tool: Plants-Component-Tags. When I select a single plant, all of the characteristics and options display in the Object Info Palette. I can change the tag display option to none for a single plant or grouping. However, if I select the first phase (or another phase) plants with a custom selection, only the layer, class and number of objects displays in the Object Info palette. When I changed the class option to active only or anything other than show/snap/modify, I get the same results in the Object Info palette. The new plants for each phase are in a separate class but on the same layer. I don't know if I can create a separate class for the plant tags for each phase that will connect to that phase. I want to show the plant symbols for the entire project but only have the plant tags and plant list on the drawing for that phase. I'd like to know a more efficient way to do this that to select each plant grouping individually. Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Terri
  10. Hi, Is there a way to include my plant symbols for one phase on the same drawing as another phase without the plant tags showing up for both phases? When I've tried a custom selection, the object info palette doesn't show the option. I don't know if my file is corrupt or if this just isn't an option. Thanks, Terri
  11. I checked and the VW Help folder is still there. I also can't print or bookmark any pages anymore. Should I uninstall and then reinstall the program?
  12. The links on the Vectorworks Help website for 2009 no longer work. Is this just my problem or have they been disabled? Thanks!
  13. Thanks for the explanation. I'm happy to learn how to do this.
  14. Hi Wes, Thanks for your suggestions. I found out that I needed to Ctrl click in order to access the "edit criteria" option. Jonathan Pickup has a helpful video on YouTube. VW has a good video techtip entitled "Organizing Worksheets" which really clarified how to organize my plant list worksheet to meet my needs.
  15. I am creating a drawing for the Phase I installation of a master plan. I would like to create a plant list to include only the plants in a class for Phase I. When I bring my plant list onto my drawing, it shows all of the plants, even for those on classes that are invisible. Although I was told that I could edit my plant list worksheet to control what's included, I have not been successful in determining what to do. What are the steps to achieve this? Thank you!
