  1. I played with the plant massing and am now trying to develop a workflow with them-

    This is a great resource and would like to hear how others are suing them in practice

    Thank you Tony for the recommendation


    The preset configuration allows for more than 100% plant coverage in a landscape area

    The file size gets big quickly

    If you ungroup the landscape area, you get the 2D graphics of each plant in the area, but the redraw tales time, and the plan results can be chaotic

  2. We did not quickly upgrade to VW 2019 because the software is too young and the timing of the MacOS update-

    Anyone who does is clearly taking a risk - 

    It is totally understandable that everyone wants to newest and best thinking VW has to offer -


    If a significant group of faithful users do not take the bait of a shiny new VW release and wait for at least SP2 release, I would assume VW would change their ways- they will see the metrics -


    We are enjoying VW 2019 for 2 months now and have yet to upgrade to Mojave-

    We upgraded to VW2019 because of many new features - data tags are the best thing ever-

  3. you will need a note or comment column added to the worksheet-

    begin by reviewing the database options in the worksheet and add the comment, annotation, or note field to the database row and it will be added to the worksheet


    it is possible to add a blank column and then add a pre-formatted comment, annotation, or note field (starting with = ) in the database row


    for additional info, Jonathan Pickup has free short you tube videos that show how to develop a custom worksheet with custom database functions


    Good Luck 

  4. EdwinE - It is our pleasure to meet you

    We use Hunter Products exclusively on irrigation and Hunter has been busy with new products (HC series controllers and flow sensors)

    We look forward to more irrigation product development

    We also use butterfly valves to isolate remote control valve manifolds

    Febco back flow preventers are typical

    Hose bibb options are important

    We always add fountain autofill valves and swimming pool autofill


    Hopefully other uses will add info they need-


    Please review and comment-

    Thank you

  5. I am waiting to upgrade to 2019 but want to know if the irrigation products/catalogs include Hunter's new controllers and flow sensor and MP spray heads and drip irrigation lines-

    Are there any details ?

    I look forward to the upgrade to stabilize the 2019 release and make it Mojave compatible

    I appreciate everyone working hard at Vectorworks to get the 2019 version stable and functional

    I am especially in awe of the many users working to get the release stable

  6. 1. in a new column place '=image' in the database row

    2. size the cell for the symbol and use the symbol for display (not attributes)

    3. be sure when you place the worksheet on the sheet, the classes you want for the graphics are on

    4. more good advice will follow by other users

    5. good luck

  7. I learned Minicad then VW using the tablet only

    I also used sketchup for awhile, but now 100% VW

    the tablet does not take long to adapt to because you do not look at the tablet for cursor movement just like a mouse

    I have no experience with Cintiq line and I like using the computer screen for cursor control

  8. I have been using a Wacom tablet for 20 years and I started with Minicad.

    I like the feel of holding a pencil and drafting

    It requires one handed keyboard use for right clicks, but I feel the tablet is a good input device and recommend it
