    Export gradient fill to DWG

    How am I supposed to export gradient fills to DWG? They always come through as solid white.

    Tips on not losing Dongles

    Well I wasn't actually thinking you'd be wearing the lanyard while the dongle was plugged in ....

    Tips on not losing Dongles

    Assuming it's a USB dongle, put it on a nice long lanyard
  4. No probs - I've done quite a bit of Beta testing in my time, so playing around with things to try and find the cause is kind of in my blood

    Editing plant 2D graphics

    Tamsin, thanks for tips on database - I agree that it would be far superior for the FM database to be tightly integrated with VW. As for the rest, yes you missed the point - we're talking about editing the graphics of a plant once it's been created - it's horrendously difficult.

    Auto option in Plant Tag Display

    I agree wholeheartedly. Being able to pick the tag position at plant placement time would be a big timesaver. This whole "use the OIP" thing is beginning to get on my nerves. It predicates a workflow that is often far from optimal.

    Bold font not printing bold

    Hi folks, I have a worksheet on my drawing that has some cells set with a dark background colour and white text set to Bold in the cell, but when it prints the text is anything but bold. Any ideas?

    Editing plant 2D graphics

    I know you can do that - but we use the same base graphic for different plants of different sizes. I just can't understand how we're expected to be able to work with something where the graphical representation on the screen is completely different in size to the actual objects on screen as demonstrated by selecting them.

    Editing plant 2D graphics

    Why is it so hard to edit the 2d graphics of defined plants? Say for example a tree is defined with a spread of 4000mm. The tree was created from a symbol that had a diameter of 1000mm. When I go to edit the 2d graphics of the plant and select all the objects, they are at the size of the original symbol, even though it looks like I should be editing the full size plant. In this example, the objects for editing are 1/4 the size of what I expect. Thus, if there is any fill/gradients, any editing becomes very painful, hit and miss, almost impossible, because you can't see what you're doing with any accuracy. Conversely, if the original symbol is larger than the created plant, editing the plant you have graphics that are larger than what the display shows, and they're "invisible" so editing is extremely difficult. Is this what everybody else is seeing? Or is it something odd going on with my system?

    Dodgy hardscape

    There's definitely a problem with some hardscape objects/definitions. Take the attached screen captures for example. It's a simple Hardscape, of type Paving/Grid, with Pattern Size set to 400. The second image shows what happens when I move the locus point for the hardscape into the corner - I get these weird angled lines coming out of nowhere. Other times, I get the first row/column of the grid becoming blank. It would be nice if someone from NNA could confirm if this is a bug.

    I got the humour in the last part of your post ....

    Text>Font menu

    Who said anything about selling software? I thought this was a forum for airing desired changes/enhancements to the software, however minor they might be .... please correct me if I'm wrong!
  13. Can we please choose to have the font list as a scrollable menu rather than a huge list that flops open and fills the whole screen? Yes I have a lot of fonts installed if you're wondering ...

    Duplicate on top of same objects

    I say, still need a way to purge duplicates, or to somehow select objects that are underneath another without sending the top object to the bottom.
