  1. Thanks for the information Will look into it all
  2. Hi all Am not in here very often but once was very active We are a landscape design, landscape architecture and consulting arborist company in Melbourne Australia and have 3 VW LM licenses and use the ETT a lot Some years ago I built a web form - Gravity Forms on Wordpress to collect tree data on site for the ETT I did not pursue it as then I thought what happens if you do not have a good internet connection and decided to wait Since it seems there are a few companies where you can build forms to do such things that will work on both IOS and Android devices that do not need an internet connection I would like to be able to collect tree data on site, export to excel; if that is the way to go and import that data into VW to populate the ETT We have strict criteria within it we use manually right now so the fields etc are not the issue What I would like to know? Is it possible to pull such data into the ETT? Is excel ok to use? And how does one achieve that? Thanks in advance for any help! Darrell

  6. Hi all When using the Existing Tree Tool as a local stand alone user we can have our own defined "library" of trees that live in a text file on Windows at ... Exisiting Tree being the text file C:\Users\PC-User\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2023\Libraries\Defaults\Existing Tree If we in Vectorworks Preferences set up Workgroup and Project folders with say Dropbox or in our case Office 365 and put the Existing Tree text file there in the correct location it does not work meaning each user has to use the C:\Users\PC-User\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2023\Libraries\Defaults\Existing Tree locations which also means if a user enters a new tree it cannot easily be shared with other users Therefore the Wish Request is to be able to have our own Existing Tree data to be able to be stored in Workgroup and Project Folders so we can all add new trees as we need to Darrell
  7. Windows - I think C:\Users\YOU\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2022\Libraries\Defaults\Existing Tree
  8. Hi all In the OIP of the Existing Tree Tool we have an ability to use Additional Fields If I have an Additional Field of say "Retention Value" with different values like "High" "Moderate" "Low" etc that we use and manually enter Is it possible to have those values as drop downs coming from say a Record or something else?? Not been here for long time but thanks in advance!! Darrell
  9. I set backups to save every 7 minutes and end up with a lot of space taken up temporarily but storage today is so cheap When we finish a project we keep all of the incoming, outgoing and latest VW files but delete all of the back ups They then go to the cloud
  10. Hi all Have not been here for a while but still using and loving VW I have a very old plugin built by Petri Sakkinen a long time ago It rotates multiple objects around their own axis not the combined objects axis Should be a core part of VW I think Watch this http://somup.com/cFQIQDVSBG Darrell ROTATE ABOUT CENTRE v2018.vwx ROTATE ABOUT CENTRE v2018.zip
  11. Hi all, Just discovered AutoCAD has a Layer State Manager which is similar I think to VW Saved Views - correct me if I am wrong Would it be possible when importing an AutoCAD file to have the import / convert Layer State Manager to Saved Views? Darrell
  12. Interesting - Been using VAA Titleblocks for so long now and really happy
  13. Thanks Jim That is cool and getting the hang of things
  14. I dunno We used to have in the old forum something like recent activity I would like to see not every post shown but every recent topic shown I think the old forum did something similar
  15. Then share and drink the champas anyway

  17. Thanks all I thought it was almost obvious and wondered why it had not been picked up before hence the "stupid" remark

  20. I noticed these sorts of things awhile ago I only used it with lines - not polys because of the corner issue Interesting thing is it is called a Line Type not a Poly Type so should it be used with Polys?? And if some one can explain to me how you get the distances between objects in it separated how you want them to be!!!!
