  1. With Vectorworks 2022 I have about 10 data tag styles that are working. Now I want to create one that displays the wall width. I am close. In the Define Tag Field window: Data Source : Record Format Format Name : #Wall Record# Field Name : #Width# With this Tag Field Definition #Wall Record#.#Width# Result : 0.458 My guess was that it was the number of feet. After a little searching I edited the definition #Wall Record#.#Width# * 12.0 Result : 5.500 I ignored the extra zeroes and added a quote mark at the end to indicate feet #Wall Record#.#Width# * 12' Result : 5.4999960000000e00' I inserted a space before the quote #Wall Record#.#Width# * 12 ' Result : 5.500 ' My last step was to remove the last 2 zeroes, i.e. have a precision of 1. However, in the Define Tag Field window, the Units, Precision and Show unit/mark fields are greyed out. Question 1: What has to be added to the tag field definition to control the precision, in my case I want the result to be 5.5 I read the help here :https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2022/eng/VW2022_Guide/Annotation2/Creating data_tag_styles.htm?rhmapfs=true#CSH_2476 In the "Editing a data tag style" section, step 8 describes the "Current Tag Field Definition" and gives some examples but doesn't point to the "language reference". Question 2: Where can I find the "language reference", i.e. the syntax for the expressions that can be entered in the Tag Field Definition area? Thanks, Bill
  2. Hello, I was working on VWX 2012 in a teamwork project. Means several people were working with the same files. We happened to have an ongoing problem with the drawing precision. I know about the Units-Settings. But maybe our problem was also linked to Symbols. Whenever a file was opened with a different MAC the symbols for example changed its places by 0,027453 meters (lets say). Since the Units-Settings are file specific I don't know what could cause this issue. Are there any settings that are global in the program and could cause this problem? Or do you think its a symbol based problem? Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks and kind regards Malte
