  1. Hey all, My collegues and I have been using VW project sharing for a couple of projects now. We are using VW 2024 (update 5) landmark edition. We have noticed some seemingly random check-outs being required to update some viewports, graphic legends, or worksheets. I've posted an image below that shows me trying to recalculate a graphic legend (highlighted in the lower left hand corner) and a prompt from VW to check out callouts on totally different design layers and sheet layers that have nothing to do with the graphic legend I'm trying to update. This has happened with other instances but this is the latest one that has prompted me to ask about it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
  2. I have a resource libary that is used across the business and recently we have been starting to use Graphic Legends (GL). When we import the GL into the required document all class definitions from the resource liabary then get imported into the new document. Is there a way to make sure either no classes are imported or only the class definition of the GL is imported?
  3. I'm experimenting with moving our planting schedule/legends from worksheets to graphic legends. I'm having an issue with the legend maintaining its size and the symbols aligning all on the center. What settings am I missing? Is it possible to manually adjust the list order? similar to how keynote numbering works? Based on the attached screenshot (the right image) can graphic legends achieve this? and are they ideally supposed to replace worksheets for this level of data? is there a way to connect the symbol with the correct lineweight and viewport setting into a worksheet? I know there is the image function... but it appears broken with not an accurate line weight. The current worksheet looks good. and is achieved by adding individual plant viewports and dragging them into place.. which becomes a tedious movement exercise prone to error whenever that sheet is updated.. I'm at a bit of a loss on how to speed up this documentation and looking for a few answers or recommendations on what is the best practice. thanks in advance
  4. I am working on a Materials and Finishes Schedule - hoping to use an Object Attributes Graphic Legend. However, I have tons of textures in my model. I have put all of the textures I want to put in the Schedule into a Texture Resource Folder in the Resource Manager. Can I filter the criteria of the Graphic Legend to filter down to a specific Resource Folder? (Renderworks Texures>Finishes>*) I suppose I can rename all of my Finish textures with a prefix and sort by name> begins with. . . Much appreciated, Bart
  5. HI I'm struggling with defining the Graphic Legend Field - (no coding knowledge) If Mark is empty on the Wall Style Data Tab, then the Legend reads the 'Name' #AnyIFCEntity#.#Pset_WallCommon#.#Reference# (default from Vectroworks original setup) If there is an entry in Mark, then it reads the Mark . How to define the 'Mark' and the 'Name' from the Wall Style Data tab? Thanks Tali (apologies - I may have posted this on a PM before) Wall Graphic Legend Trial.pdf
  6. As above, this would be a really useful functionality that would allow symbols or styles to be clearly identified on a drawing with an associated Graphic Legend reporting that data about that object/style. For us, we could then basically automate the way in which we identify differing wall styles on drawings. Currently this is just a regular viewport with all the colours added to the annotation space. The wall descriptions are then manually typed out. This introduces a lot of potential for errors, not to mention it being a tedious task. Other people have different uses for it as described here. This could be an extension of the "Filter by Viewport" option of graphic legends or something else, but certainly it seems like the functionality to achieve this is present in VW albeit in separate parts.
  7. Got my graphic legend working for doing fixture summaries, and that works great, pulls in Type, dmx channel count, weight etc. is there any way for the graphic of the fixture to render with the color of my data visulization? I usually color code fixtures on plots and would love for the key on the side to match. Currently just renders in the default texture it looks like. pic attached for example.
  8. I am trying to create a graphic legend, using a few simple 2D symbols, to which very simple 2-field Record Formats have been applied. When I go to edit the Cell Layout for the Graphic Legend and create a "dynamic text" item, when I select the symbol's Record Type & Field and try to create a dynamic text component as part of the Graphic Legend cell layout, the Graphic Legend appears to simply ignore the item entirely. It doesn't show up at all in the layout, even as an empty place-holder. When I change the data source for the dynamic text item to be an Object Function (such as "Area"), then everything works fine. Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Note that the Cell Layout is identical in both examples. Here's the PROPERLY WORKING example: And here is the NON-WORKING example:
  9. Hello, Is it possible for graphic legend based on material name to include information like material description, mark, keynote ... We have tried with worksheet function: #WS_MATERIALPROPERTY('MaterialKeynote')# but it is not working. Is there a way to extract these type of data? Any suggestions much apreciated.
  10. Hi everyone, I am using the new graphic legend tool for a booklet representing prefab facade elements of a building. Any prefab element is a symbol (hybrid 3d/2d) with an attached record. Within the graphic legend cell, I would like to insert a text (dynamic text of a graphic legend field) showing the overall amount (=count function) of each prefab element (=symbols). It seems to me it is not possible to call the "count" function via dynamic text definition. Any idea/suggestion on how to do that? (e.g. showing how many times the item shown in a graphic legend cell - in window reports / wall type reports / symbol reports / etc.- is used in the drawing/file and/or within the selected criteria).
  11. Recently ran into a problem in graphic legend referencing. In abstract, I believe the graphic legend tool has the ability to potentially eliminate drawing wall type details by about 50% if not more! Currently I am trying to use the Graphic legend tool to essentially do just that - create details for all the wall types, floor types, symbol types etc...to be used for current and future project in our office. I have succeeded in the most import aspects - extracting component and material information from these elements. There are just a few things missing - a scaling reference (one shown in GRAPHICLEGEND scale) and a number sequence for image cell numbers. It seems they already autopopulate the numbers given that each image can be previewed seperately as image cells (see below). These number can then be used as detail callout numbers from the plan (not necessarily referenced, but indicated / recorded). I think this would be a huge timesaver for many people here. DATATAG COMPONENT CALLOUTS.vwx My wish is to be able to extract this information into the dynamic text properties (i.e. #WS_Objectdata(GraphicLegend#, scale) or something similar, and #WS_Objectdata(Graphiclegend,cell number) or something similar. But here is the prefinal result! I'm attaching my reference file to show the remaining information that can be extracted from PIO's.
