  1. Identifying a design layer an object resides on is difficult unless the design layer happens to be active. Is there any way to ID an object's design layer without activating each and every design layer and then trying to select the object?


  2. How can I import a dwg file and have the imported objects take on the native class attributes of the current file, current file being the one receiving the import? Currently, all imported dwg layers change the corresponding class attributes. Don't want that!



  3. I have a symbol open for edit and want to export the contents of the symbol to a flat 2d dwg file. The export errors with an internal error and the export fails. The symbol is a title block with line art, text and graphics.

    Thanks in advance.


  4. Thanks Vsd for the reply. It looks like the short answer is, unless you want to mess with VScript, you cannot access the data fields of a roof object within a worksheet.

    I am one that believes any software that bills itself as a BIM application, will need to allow simple access to all the drawing data in order to build simple custom solutions in order to make BIM really work...I'll keep hoping VW gets there in the future.

  5. Hi Pete, I'm hoping your name is Pete. I have had success with the Length() field, although it returns inches and needs to be divided by 12 to get feet (I'm not aware of this little fact being stated anywhere in a help file or manual). I would like to return the data from the +/- Z field, I set my wall heights in that field. Any ideas on worksheet syntax?

  6. Joe, I share your frustrations. If I could help you, I could help myself as I'm looking for the same answers. It seems that we can get and report data from just about everything else, just not walls. If so, someone would have had the answer by now. That leaves me to believe no one has a clue. I'll let you know if I stumble into something.
