  1. To get my .pdf file size down I’ve always set out my images for a given sheet and then exported as a single image, then adjust size externally & reimport – as in this example using a plant palette. But how can I automate this more? I’d like to hit a button and export everything within the coordinate space of the two highlit locus points (in encl. image) (ie using the export as image function). I almost always export .jpg, 300dpi (but sometimes I adjust that), at maximum quality setting. I’m not a script writer but is this something that already exists, or could someone here write such a thing? I always get width dimension of my sheetspace objects before entering dialog. I don’t use loci for anything else in sheetspace. Mouse: File > Export > Image file; Export Image File dialog {Alt f x i} - Export area, defaults to random setting. { m } - Dimensions, remembers its setting. {TAB is only access} - Quality, remembers its setting. {TAB is only access} - Format, remembers its settings. {TAB is only access} - Print size, height & width always some random number. Units defaults to inches, so always have to reset to cm ). {TAB is only access} Then press Draw Marquee Draw marquee in sheetspace Dialog returns with Save and one navigates to path and saves it A lot of steps – 13 or so, some of it forcing mousing, and I do it at least twice a day. A button would be amazing, and save a lot of time and fiddling. My musing - ignore for now A script would probably start with checking that locus points existed in current sheet. So can a script read/parse locus point positions as part of a process? Or do they need to be in a record? Or will a name suffice?
  2. Currently trying to export images of my line drawings for a Design & Access Statement. Using Apple Pages so exporting as JPG/PNG is my best bet for cropping effectively and getting file sizes down. However, I think I have messed about with the settings previously and my image file exports are always blurry or contain thick lines compared to PDF. Is there something wrong with my settings? Thanks. 2210 - Planning Materials 3.pdf
  3. So I'm importing some aerials for a job there's 20 of them, whether I reference or import I have to click Okay for each one, I've been doing this since 2005, surely there's a way using e.g. Marionette (or a script) to avoid this tedium. I get new images for this site quite often so this wastes a lot of time. Has anyone else solved this, coz I know I'm not the only one doing large sites.
  4. Hi! Can someone explain me why exportin a drawing as JPG is changing the colors so much? I'm exporting from the design layer, and not from the layout sheet. Attached you can find a screenshot with the VW project and the JPG open side by side Attached you also find a screenshot with the Export Image file dialog box. Thanks! Francesco
  5. I have a quick question regarding Exported Rendered Images from Vectorworks. When I export an image in whatever its format I get pale colors even though in Vectorworks colors appear perfect. Would somebody know why this happens? I’d like to obtain the same rich colors and contrast that Vectorworks gives me but in an exported image (without having to pass through photoshop to increase contrast..). Hope someone can help!
