  1. Hi all! If I create a group in VW, the group will be assign to the active class. Is there a way to have a class that is automatically used for new groups? Like with walls, even if I am in another class, the walls are always assign to the class "walls". Thanks! Francesco
  2. Hello all, On multiple projects I'm working on, I have lighting devices and 3D objects which are colored/shaded improperly when the Lighting class is visible. I created a new, blank document to demonstrate this behavior. In this document is a Lighting Device and a 2D white filled rectangle that I extruded. Whenever the Lighting class is invisible, the color/shading of other objects appears normal. Whenever the Lighting class is enabled, the color/shading of other objects is affected. The rectangle's color now appears gray even though the attributes panel shows that it is set to white. Any idea why this is happening and how I can prevent it? Thanks, Zack Lighting Class Visibility Color.vwx
  3. Hi all, I'm about three months new to Vectorworks, and I use it mainly for theater as a sound designer, but I'm working on a project where I've designed a whole theater venue (i.e. lobby, stage, auditorium), and I'm struggling deciding how to separate these different spaces. I've made layers for the orchestra, mezzanine, and balcony, but these layers don't necessarily translate to floor levels across the venue. I'd also like to make view ports and sheet layers with just the lobby, but objects like doors, stairs, and slabs are are all in one class regardless of where they are in the venue, so there's no way to hide a whole portion of the venue by turning off classes or layers. I'm thinking I should a.) create separate layers for each space, e.g. lobby ground plan, lobby mezzanine, lobby balcony; theatre orchestra, theatre mezzanine; stage fly gallery, stage mid gal, etc., or b.) make parent classes for each part of the venue and class common items to the appropriate parent class, e.g. Lobby-Stairs, Theatre-Stairs, Stage-Stairs, etc. Curious how other more experienced users would go about organizing such spaces. Hope the question makes sense. Thanks!
  4. Trying to delete a class leads to this pop up window: Unable to delete the objects. One or more of the objects that you are trying to delete is a required component or automatically generated component of a plug-in object and cannot be deleted. As shown in the first attachment. I did a custom selection search as seen in the next snapshot. No plug-in objects using that offending class however. Am I missing something or is this a bug? Happy Holidays everyone!

  5. There seems to be a lot more auto-generated classes lately. For example, if I insert a stage light to project a gobo or I simply want the instrument body to appear as part of the scenery in my rendering, that auto creates four classes: Braceworks, Hanging Point, Distributed load and Point load. When I try to delete these classes I'm informed that "one of more of the objects I'm trying to delete is a required component..." Even after I have moved the objects to other classes. Same with all kinds of objects and symbols. It makes me not want to import anything in from the RB for fear of cluttering up my document with undeleteable classes. I can go into the Org panel and work my way up the tree reassigning and deleting and it looks like it worked. But exit, and there they are, still in the navigation stack. I go to one of these classes with Layers=S/S/MO and Classes=Active only and Ctrl-A and get nothing. So these are empty but undeletable classes. Is there a way to control the auto-generated classes or at the very least delete them effectively? VW 2020 Windows 10
  6. From the perspective of creating and maintaining drawings standards: Is there a way to have a class in one document and have it referenced in another document, then make a change in the class attributes and have it change in the referenced document. (as you might with a symbol) Also is there a way to rename a class and have it be renamed in the other referenced documents.
  7. Hi, Establishing criteria for databases is easy: Database header cell: =CompAreaByClass('Class-1') using the previous function and establishing criteria I manage to show results only form a particular layer. What I can't do is the following, I want in a normal worksheet cell to get the area of my components but specify from which layer. I know I have to use this function: Spreadsheet cell: =CompAreaByClass(t=wall,'Class-1') What do I need to add to the function above to specify the search in a particular layer? Thanks in advance, Martín
  8. I am trying to group together several similar items (each in a different class) into one group inside of a symbol. This group is intended to be in a parent class that would then control the visibility of the entire group. However, after grouping the items in the symbol and placing it the desired class, when I exit the symbol, the items come un-grouped. When I reenter the symbol edit, sure enough, they are all ungrouped. Any ideas?
  9. Heya Team, How would you go about toggling which classes to show in your symbols thumbnail view? For example, truss with a simplified class, in hidden line symbol thumbnail render mode it doesn't look like truss. how would I turn that class off for the symbol render? Thanks in advance!
  10. I'll be teaching a 2-day hands-on Vectorworks BIM workshop at the AIA offices in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, on October 12 and 13: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/santa-fe-vectorworks-bim-workshop-tickets-50280749074
  11. When I change the colour of the class my cabinet doesn't adjust to this colour. I have created multiple cabinets from one base wich works fine. But the cabinet I have attached doesn't change as you can see for yourself. I have changed three classes which the cabinet uses, but they all remain white. Does anyone have any idea, what might be the cause? Any suggestions or ideas to simplify my cabinet are welkom... I get the idea this one is made more complicated then needed. Parametric cabinet.vwx
  12. The Plant Definition does not appear to give the user the ability to assign a plant to a particular class. This would appear to be a useful feature which would be very valuable when using the select similar tool for instance or in a large scale planting. Currently it appears to default to NONE. All comments appreciated.
  13. So I have a class structure set up and therefore set my attributes to 'class style' but I have noticed that this changes and I'm not sure what key I''m pressing or what action I'm carrying out that is changing this? Any ideas? Its driving me crazy. I guess sometimes my active class changes to others too sometimes - I might start drawing on my '1 EXTG Walls' class and then all of sudden it might be back to my '0' class?
  14. it will be good to have Class 'parent class' so that objects take the class of the container (group, symbol, Plug-ins). this will be usefull by symbol. for exemple a chair with steel structure and a upholstery with parent's class that can be than change. or group with object with a fixed class (other objects have parent's class)
  15. How about add the description in Organization dialog? so you can have an entire look of the drawing's structure
  16. Hi there, I've noticed that whenever I 'Force Select' an object, it activates the layer but doesn't change the active class. This has been the case among many documents, and occurred with VW 2017 as well. Any thoughts?
  17. I use a 4" high outer component to a wall as a base which I show in 3D but not in 2D using class visibility. When I turn on the "hide details" toggle in 2D the wall does not respect the width of the wall with the base class turned off. I suspect this is by design as the graphic is likely for the entire wall but it is not expected.

    Create Classes

    I'm not a scripter, and in my limited research I was not able to successfully do this. I want to create a tool (marionette node, vectorscript, anything) that when I run it it will create a series of classes in the active document. I know what I want all those classes to be, just don't know how to make this script. Thanks,
  20. It would be nice if a new subclass or sub-subclass could be created by right-clicking on the parent (sub)class in the navigation panel when in hierarchical view E.g. Class1 Class1-Subclass1 Class1-Subclass2-subsubclas1 Class1-Subclass2-subsubclas2 If I would right click on Subclass2 and select new class then it would automatically start the new subclass with the proper prefix, i.e. Class1-Subclass2- in this example and then I would only have to complete the subsubclass name instead of either retyping the whole thing or duplicate the subclass and then edit it or edit a subclass, copy the name and then paste it when creating the new sub(sub)class. Especially when you have to create (sub)subclasses on the go as new information is piling up that does not fit within existing classes and you want to class it this would save quite a bit of time.
  21. It would be nice to be able to assign a class to window and door styles in the Settings dialogue box - not classes for the individual components but an overall class. e.g. all windows are assigned a user class such as My Windows, so when calling up windows using the tool we do not have to change it's class from None to My Windows. Same for doors. Thank you for your consideration.
  22. Hi all, I seem to be unable to select objects from other layers other than the one from my active layer. It seem to me the only way to go about doing it is to right click the object and choosing force select. I have checked online and the impression I get is that i shouldn't have to do this as my setting for my class is "show/snap/modify others". However, in my 3rd screenshot as i dragged my cursor over the area shown, only my 2 lights fixture turn orange(this orange did not appear in my screenshot) and not the 2 rectangles which are TVs. This is the same when i try to click on any other thing. Does anyone know if i need to check on any other settings?
  23. This is an idea for a new way to create new classes. Instead of 1). going to the Organization, 2.) creating a new class and then 3) modifying it's corresponding attributes (i.e. pen, fill, texture, etc.), it would be awesome if there were a command, perhaps a right-click menu command, that created a new class with the attributes of a selected object. Inherently this would then work best if the objects selected were placed in the newly created class and made to reflect all attributes by class. This would be an additional, more visual way of creating classes, simply by first applying graphic overrides to existing objects, and then by using that object to define the style of a new class. Its kind of like a style in Word or InDesign...
  24. I find myself forever going to the Color Palette and having to go through the 4 drop downs to reset all to the "Color by Class", "Fill by Class" "Style by Class" etc ... Does anyone know a shortcut or script to automate this?
  25. Another plant tool query: Generic "Small Shade Tree 01 object has components classed for outline, canopy, interior linework, and color fill. The only color fill classed object is a single short line - sort of a twig similar to the interior linework. Does it have a function for display or other use? This wouldn't be an issue except that if this resourc plant definition is duplicated to use as basis for a new custom plant object, the new object does not display properly if that "twig" is present. My discovery: Duplicate the resource, edit the 2d components. Replace or reshape all the elements, leave the twig as is, or move it to new position. Now place the new custom plant object into a drawing. The shadow and mass outline functions do not work. Edit the definition 2d elements and delete the twig. Now the shadow and mass outlines display as expected. Any ideas? -B
