  1. I have prepared revised sheets for a project and I want to provide issue data. I need to change the issue number and want to set it to manual entry? as there is a numbering error.

  10. Jim, Thank you for your help. I have visibility set to show snap modify others but still cannot view plug in objects? Any other suggestions?
  11. I have inserted a toilet plug in object. It seems to insert correctly initially showing along the wall as expected. However, It will disappear and I am not able to force select or select the object? Not sure Why? When I place my cursor over the object I get a shadow of the object which is greyed out? Why. thanks, lm
  12. I wanted to create a new title block in 2018. I used a default standard, "My Custom Title Block". I made changes to the title block using "edit style" in the O.I.P. The edited version of the custom tilted block is available in the document . However, when I open a new document and select my custom title block the revised version is not available? I am only able to select the original default version. I thought that if I made changes to the "style" the changes would be saved to be used in other documents? What am I missing. thanks,

  22. Perhaps I am trying an inappropriate short cut. I have a know elevation at the proposed building. I want the slope to fall away from the point. I want to show drain locations and thought that perhaps I could use the slab drain tool to calculate the elevation of the drain given a specified slope percentage? Perhaps I am not thing ing this through! I do not have a site model and have limited data, but really this is just a parking lot with a simple drain configuration, thanks, lm
  23. I have a know elevation at at corner of a structure which will be my maximum elevation. I want to calculate the elevation of a drain in an adjacent parking area. If I am specifying a 2% grade can vectorworks calculate the drain height? thanks
