  1. When placing a symbol as a group (from the workgroup folder) places the group with strange coordinates that are not visible screenshot included of the object info palette Any recommendation ?
  2. thank you Jim a work-around could be to adjust the units before printing I appreciate your efforts in a resolution, the 3 place decimals look odd for a planting callout - as if anyone in the landscape field uses 3 decimal places for anything
  3. Using VW 2015 Landmark, selecting a document unit for square feet of 1 sf instead of the default .001 sf, the setting reverts to back to ,001 sf. I use the 1 sf setting when using the landscape area tool to display the area of a landscape area in the callout. The setting of 1 sf for area does not remain but the default reverts to .001 every time. Is there a file setup issue and the area setting be set before a new file is saved ??
  4. Tamsin- Thank you very much for the info I appreciate your time and expertise with the topic I will search out the service select tutorial
  5. Can you refer me to a tutorial or recommend a solution for referencing plant symbols and detail symbols from my dropbox account? I would like to be able to have a VW file that automatically updates as a source file when I revise or add a plant symbol or construction detail. Am I using the resource browser incorrectly? I usually import the plant symbol folder and detail folders into a new file and then use them in the new file, thus when I revise the symbol or add to the folder there is not an automatic way to have the original VW file updated. I also have a VW Cloud account and would be happy to store the reference symbol files there if dropbox cannot 'sync' Hopefully there are settings for a new file with the appropriate references- Thank you in advance-
  6. today VW did not save any work even using the auto save feature
  7. I would check the create report tool. There may be a record that already exists that could be added to a report that reflects the plant spacing in the plant description or in the spacing used in placing plants in a landscape area. I agree that the labels and terms used in VW are not my first choice and you have to become accustomed to the VW descriptions. Good Luck
  8. I found the length of the spacing occurs with long distances (several feet). The notes appear when you adjust the text spacing and lengths in the object info palette- I hope this helps
  9. Thank you Bryan for your help I started from scratch and added the database for the tree inventory I was working on. By starting over, the keynotes worked and all is fine. Thank you again FYI, I sent the file to tech support and they notified me they were working on the file but then never replied, one way or the other-
  10. The file I am working on has 37 entries that are used on 2 layer sheets. The keynote numbers are in the annotation (one sheet is 50 scale, on sheet is 100 scale), the legend is on the 1:1 scale of each layer sheet. Thank you for your help- 22" Imac 3.06 GHz Intel Core duo, 4 GB RAM, OSX 10.6.6, VW 2011 SP2
  11. I have only partial legend showing with a keynote system- 10 items are shown from a 37 item database
  12. I was able to plot after using the preset drawing sizes (arch D) in page setup. The sheet is 37 3/8" long due to a hard margin HP adds to the sheet. My earlier solution was a cutom sheet size that is not a valid solution using panther.
  13. I cannot plot VW 10.5.1b files using panther (mac) on my HP designjet 800ps. Although an image prints, the sheet orientation does not register properly. I am using a custom sheet size to produce 24" x 36" sheets on the 24" wide plotter. The image that prints is a portion of the sheet. I have tried several configurations with no luck. I tried HP in Boise and they know of the problem, but the guy I spoke with knew of no solution. I really like panther's interface and wish to solve the problem. Thank you in advance- Bob
  14. I have been using this software for nearly 4 years. My practice is primarily high end residential: site planning and site development. Schematics / renderings, thru cd's- I would enjoy hearing from others with similar work and am interested in collaborations- bob@cleaverdesign.com [This message has been edited by bob cleaver (edited 01-17-2001).]
