  1. 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 ??

  2. 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-

  3. 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

  4. 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-

  5. 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-

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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-
