  1. You're very welcome. And thanks for saying thanks. It's appreciated.
  2. In the Landmark workspace, there is also a command, View > Show > Show or Hide Site Modifiers. But the class works equally well, and does not turn off the functionality of the site modifiers.
  3. If you edit the symbol again, this time choosing to edit the 2D graphics, I think the geometry should be pointing above the X axis. But yes, you may need to flip individual instance of the symbol in the same way that you would a door. I think you'll only be able to do multiple sockets into one wall at a time.
  4. Once you've changed the symbol options, you might be able to select all your sockets in one and drag them over to the wall, so that they attach. The wall should highlight as it does when you insert a window or door.
  5. Yes, if you right click on the symbol on the Resource Manager, and choose to edit the Symbol Options, you can check Insert in Wall, and then choose On Edge. You can also define how it cuts the wall, if at all.
  6. I am not experiencing this at all anymore. I think it might be an old template issue. If you use the Garden Design template that's provided with 2020, do you still see the problem?
  7. It was 1989! Teaching those with typewriters to move to Word Processors.
  8. Mark, when I started teaching people technology at the age of 24, Copy and Paste was definitely revolutionary!
  9. Or, copy and paste an existing database header row, and then just edit the criteria.
  10. You can have multiple database header rows in the same worksheet. Just go to the row where you would like the next one, right click on it, and nominate it as a database row. Then set the criteria.
  11. It does work in 3D but fails to detect if the object is outside the bounding box on the Z axis. So will include elements you may not want to include.
  12. @markdd I think the Location is within thinks only in 2D... I extruded the polyline and gave it a new name. I then duplicated a symbol and moved it up on the Z axis, but within the bounding box of the extrude. They worksheet reported it. I then moved it up further on the Z axis, so still within the plan bounding box, but outside the 3D bounding box. The worksheet still reported it. Sorry.
  13. And you want to show the area name beside each item? @JMR, how are you displaying the Polygon area name on the drawing? That's what I am struggling with because there is no relationship between the area and the objects being reported.
  14. Thanks @JMR but I think this has beaten me. I agree that having a common prefix on all the areas will help narrow down the results. However, I think that @markdd is also looking to include the name of the Location polyline or polygon alongside the objects that are reported. However, as there is no direct relationship between the elements, other than physical proximity, I can't see a way to do it. Although the symbols are enclosed within the polyline, they are not related to it. And it could be that they are actually enclosed within more than one polyline, so it's not necessarily a one to one correlation, if that makes any sense. So, I think this will need someone much smarter than me to answer!
  15. Oooh - you've got me there... let me see if I can find that and learn something new... I suspect you will have to have multiple database rows - one for each area. But I'll see if I can find something.
  16. Hi Mark Select the Polygon, and on the Object Info palette, give it a name, using the Name field at the bottom of the palette. Then, in your worksheet, set the criteria to Location is Within <Area Name>. Here's a quick example... Location is Within.vwx
  17. Thanks for the heads up Jeremy. I'll alert the tech support team that this is happening with these two antivirus programmes. We recently had issues with a Sophos update too.
  18. Yes, plenty - please join my Zoom meeting.
  19. OK Richard, would you like me to help you tonight?
  20. You're very welcome. The beauty of the hybrid approach is that the resulting object can have both 2D properties, so look lovely in plan view, and separate properties for a 3D view or visualisation. If you don't need the plan view, you can stick to a purely 3D view, and just model elements. If you choose a Top view instead of a Top/Plan view, and render with OpenGL, you will see the textures that have been applied.
  21. Hi Richard I will give you a call in the morning if that's OK, and then we can establish the best workflow for what you want to achieve.
  22. Login to the student portal - it is displayed on the page where you downloaded the software.
  23. I'm so glad it's working. You can set OpenGL as the default render mode here: If you don't have the option available on the Quick Preferences bar, click the lower down arrow (at the right of my screenshot) and enable the option. Looking forward to seeing your progress when you feel ready to share!
  24. OK - so it looks like you have created a style called Audley, which contains a number of components. These are set up with different fills which will show in a section view. However, the basic attributes for the wall has a fill style of None, and this is what's causing the textures not to display. Here's what to do: On the Resource Manager, click the Home button to ensure you are looking at the resources of the active file. Locate the Wall Style definition, named Audley. Right click on this and choose Edit. At the top of the dialogue box, above the list of components, click Edit Wall Attributes. Change None to Solid and then choose the base colour you would like. Click OK and choose to replace the style. Now, the wall is set to render By Object (in other words, not render each individual component) and to get that texture By Class. The wall is in the class Wall-Exterior. So, now, edit that class and on the Textures pane, choose the texture you would like to apply to the left and top of the wall. In my example, I have put a stone texture on the left (outside) and the top, leaving the interior of the wall showing the solid white fill that I applied in the style. tamsin.vwx
  25. P.S. I will need to do this in the next half an hour - other weekend activities will take over then!
