  1. Ok I just started a new file with a new part, and its working fine now. I don't know what I was doing wrong before but glad it's working now. Thanks for the help. I clearly need to adjust my selection colours though, I can't tell which face is being highlighted which makes it difficult to know what is being changed. Again, thanks for the help. This has baffled me for some time now.
  2. Ok, I'll try again and post back soon. And yes if you would be willing to share the texture I would be grateful. I'm always trying to make my models more realistic. It helps when I put work on to the shop floor to have some accurate 3D perspectives of the final product.
  3. Also, where did you find your plywood endgrain texture? I like that one a lot better than the one I'm using...
  4. Hmm. I don't see what you're seeing. You have all the sides as separate items, mine only shows 'face override - sides'. I did select auto-align plane, but that didn't add the subsequent faces.
  5. I can get it to work part of the way. See attached screenshots. I'm trying to make the edge of the bottom plywood horizontal, but no matter what rotation I use for the texture, the plies of the plywood remain vertical. How do I force the edge to change orientation?
  6. Ok, following up on this thread. The data tag works perfectly. But here's a question - now that the bubble are separate lines, the tag has no fill. So if I use this over a woodgrain hatch, things start to look a bit messy. Any way to get a fill for the bubble?
  7. Oops, I need to update my signature, will do it now. I'm on 2022 Architect with InteriorCAD. I can never get the per face texturing to work. Not sure what I'm doing wrong...
  8. Can someone please explain how to apply a texture to a face of an object? For the life of me, I cannot get the grain directions in wood textures to represent what I actually want. In some cases, changing the rotation of the texture does absolutely nothing on one object, but works on another. It doesn't make any sense to me. Below is a screenshot of a bunkbed that I'm trying to model, but I need to get the grain directions right so I can provide this with my shop drawings. Any help appreciated.
  9. Yep. That did it! Thank you. I too spent a bunch of time looking, but couldn't figure out why mine didn't work. So in the end, something simple. But not so simple.🤦‍♂️ Happy New Year!
  10. It is. Here is a file with the data tag. If you have a chance maybe you can take a look? I'm sure I'm missing something simple. data tag sample.vwx
  11. Ok, sorry for the delay on this. I think I have it setup correctly, here are my settings for the lines. But I still get the line extending beyond the side brackets when the text is over 6 characters.
  12. Hmm. This is promising. But why do my lines extend beyond the bubble when the text gets really long? I tried a few different variations on your settings above (including control points of the top and bottom lines), but always the same result. Does your example have the same behaviour?
  13. Well I'm very grateful to have gotten this far. And TBH, it's unlikely I would ever have a finish tag that long. But it never hurts to ask! Appreciate the help. This will be a big time saver for me.
  14. Wait! I got it. Helps if you actually read the instructions. Apply the constraints to the text, not the bubble. Which is great. But last question (I think). When you input a long text note, the bubble ends get elongated. Is there a way to constrain those but adjust the middle portion of the bubble? See attached:
