  1. check the database cell and organize the sum vales and summarize values to total or organize the cell entries that follow
  2. We use the wall tool and set the width of the wall to the border you are planning - metal edging, concrete edging, brick edging - wall height adjusted to the material - A worksheet can track the wall with a name and you can save the wall as a style for reuse - HTH
  3. In the recent publishing, incorrect sheets are being published (version added in attachments) macOS 10.15.4
  4. It is great for you to share these investigations. I agree the 3rd study using the road for contours works best for the road. Using PIO modifiers beyond road edges as a grade limit (either by distance or slope) should make more realistic grading solution on the sides of the road. Custom Curb tool allows for varied road shapes and then you can reshape the road as desired. Use station points to adjust the elevations along the road allow for fine tuning.
  5. With the current work-separation situation, my associate and I are working remotely. We are using the redline tool to communicate changes and ideas on drawings. In order to overcome the small comment box in the OIP, we have developed a worksheet that we place on the drawings for easy access/editing long comments and discussions. How are others accomplishing this coordination, redline tool or other methods ? Thank you and be safe
  6. @neal-2002 I am curious on your hackintosh setup, please share as much as you can
  7. We do not print from VW but publish a PDF and then print from Preview app We find the formatting is lacking when printing from VW direct
  8. @Tamsin Slatter can you direct us to the request so we can vote it up ? I could not find VE-100503 in a search
  9. We are developing a workflow to add irrigation emitters to a drawing that allows for automation in placing them in multiples at each plant. We have considered using symbols (perhaps in a special class inside each plant symbol ? but do not want to break the class system and the pre-formatted worksheets) Adding tubing between the emitters with an automated system would be helpful. Perhaps a workflow already exists - Bryan Goff -
  10. I will guess the OS (Catalina from Mojave) has something to do with it. OR Was the file on the old machine already rendered (so the model was already save in computer cache) ? Adjusting the seating would be quicker in that model than rendering the entire model from scratch on the new machine.
  11. I recommend you use data tags in the annotation layer of a viewport You will have better control and uniformity
  12. After dissecting the file (thank you for sharing) I need to learn more about subdivisions Your approach is very much like construction methods (especially the plum bob symbols) Hopefully youtube will be a resource
  13. @digitalcarbon this looks brilliant, can you elaborate on the process/workflow ?
  14. We wanted simple field installation and future maintenance with a single emitter type and adding multiple emitters for each type of plant. So would you place emitters first and the 'snake' the drip line to each emitter ? OR 'snake' the drip line and then place emitters
  15. Brian- I first posted this to the General Discussion section of the forum and would be happy if you remove it from there and just keep this on Site Design
  16. Thank you Brian Using the drip pipe makes sense in lieu of an irrigation lateral for the emitter symbol and connecting the emitters throughout the planting area Would there be a potential error placing the correct number of emitters at each plant ? Live Data Viz also makes sense - I have not used this feature
  17. We are planning to develop symbols of emitters for plants (for easy placement on drawings): 1 and 5 gallon container plants receive 2 emitters 15 gallon container plants receive 3 emitters The workflow is to use symbols (with emitters and laterals with the correct classes in the symbol) that would be placed at plant locations. Once the symbols are placed, the symbols would be converted to group and then ungrouped and then at least one emitter at each plant is connected to a valve using the irrigation lateral tool - the result is all emitters and laterals will be part of the terrific VW irrigation schedules. When the plan needs revising, the emitters would be shifted as needed manually (without the use of the symbols). I look forward to critiques -

  19. @ptoner how do you disconnect from the network ?
  20. I believe you will find the custom size in the plant style of each plant
  21. @NoemiM and everyone, thank you forth responses. You have provided some terrific ideas and I will follow up after I have time to develop a process.
  22. @bgoff can you develop some samples in a VWX file and share it ?
  23. The formatting flexibility with data tags is incredible and a great tool for existing tree info used in a traditional plan view It makes you think about other creative uses for the data tag Thank you J Wallace and Tony for the inspiration -
  24. one reason for the fence/railing tool is that it spaces posts evenly across a segment of fence
  25. zoomer- we would all appreciate a review of fences with offset elements a fence with continuous stringers on one side of posts- do you offset the posts as a profile or symbol or offset the stringers as a symbol or profile ? fences work for fitting them to terrain versus flat slabs
