  1. Hello - The Vectorworks Redline Status Report is great but is missing some key information for our workflow... "Assigned to" and "assigned by" is necessary information for our remote workflow & collaboration efforts. Is it possible to edit the redline status report? I have not been having luck so far on that front. I have been able to recreate it manually except I have not been able to figure out how to get the manual report to pull closed redlines... Any insight is appreciated.
  2. Hoping to find some step by step help with this because after reading the help topics and watching youtube videos I still don't get it The ah ha light is not coming on for me. Old dog, new tricks. I have been using VW constantly since 2012 designing exhibits and doing production drawings for 2000 sq ft trade show booths and 5000 sq ft hands-on museum spaces but I'm usually too busy to think about more than I absolutely need to get drawings from pretty pictures into the shop. I want to be able to do what is shown in the image from a vendor below and I know VW can do it. I'm on 2020 Let's say I have all of the parts as symbols in one of my Favorites. I start a new file and import the parts I need and build this thing (I'll attach a small sample of the right tower) Does the Description import with it? Should I do something in my Favorites file to make it easier for multiple new files? How do I tag the parts and multiples of parts? How do I turn that into the report as shown with quantities and such? Remember step by step because I've spent a good bit of time on this and I'm just not getting it A small sample of the attached file would be great for reverse engineering as well Every thing is an imported Symbol except for the top 4 - 2x2x19 corner extrusions which are the taller symbol pieces converted to solid sections While I have your attention, is there any reason why these types of parts (in 20 x the quantity shown here) would make VW sometimes run as slow as doggie doo doo on a damp day? Free beer when you come to Tampa if you can get me on the right track Bematrix sample file.vwx
  3. Hello all I am new to worksheets and have been following a tutorial to set one up for building takeoffs of my project. I have started with the walls and have been able to create the worksheet with no issue except when I try to summarize the walls based on wall type. When hit summarize all of the data no longer shows, so it doesn't provide a Toal wall length or area for the summarized wall type. See the attached images below Does anyone have any idea what step I am missing? Thank you
  4. Can we please have a Preformatted Report added for a combined window and external door schedule, assuming 'W' ID Prefix for both windows and external doors (and assuming internal doors have a different ID Prefix, 'D')? It will require IF statements, as noted here by Pat: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/104578-door-and-window-schedules-combination/#comment-455772
  5. ConnectCAD in Vectorworks 2023 promises a new contextual command to Find objects in a report. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2023/eng/VW2023_Guide/ConnectCAD/Creating_ConnectCAD_reports.htm#h1 Is this feature exclusive to ConnectCAD objects only? I can see this as a really useful feature for all types of reported objects in Vectorworks. Attempted to use command on door schedule, doesn't appear for door objects.
  6. Is there a way to have a single material with different finish options? I've been trying to simplify multiple things across my workflow, and materials seem to be the one thing that I just can't figure out on my own. In the past I've been ok with having a library of different materials that correlated to finish variations of the same substrate, but now that I've been working on creating automated worksheet reports it is become quickly apparent that this is only going to become an issue in the future due to how VWX pulls information. I had tried using records to do this, and it was working, but I really like the idea of using the material specifications if possible to remove more step. Is what I'm hoping possible somehow? I've only started getting into the more advanced features of VWX, so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm completely missing something. Thanks!
  7. In a Window Schedule Report (or just a simple Worksheet) is it possible to call up the thickness of wall that each window is inserted into? I want to do this to help tenderers do take-offs for the various sill depths they need to allow for.
  8. Hi all, I'm having some hard time with window schedules because the Sill is always coming with the window height function, even when we have in the tool the selection of "Structural Opening" which by default should include the sill height in, like the door threshold does, but when we add the sill to the window it adds literally the height of the sill but it doesn't add it to the "structural opening" size in the GENERAL OPTIONS for the window. Example is having a 1200mm height window (general options - Structural opening) if i add the sill of 50mm what will happen to the overall size of the window is going to 1250mm height instead of the sill being incorporated in the overall height of 1200 making the "Unit Size" smaller So with the above in mind is there a way of using the worksheet functions to "remove" the height of the sill while having it on the drawing so i can have a Realistic Structural size of the window opening ?? Hope i was clear on my explanations.
  9. It would be nice to have a nicely formatted accommodation schedule available under: Reports > Create Report > Preformatted Report To include: Space Number Occupant Name Storey Number of habitable rooms Number of bed spaces Net internal floor area (e.g. excludes structural columns) Gross internal floor area
  10. I am a boundary surveyor and spend my time trying to sort out peoples problems with the location of their boundary lines. I align my surveys to the (UK) OS National Grid and if we submit the findings to the Land Registry I need to know the Eastings and Northings for each change in direction the boundary line takes. No Z coordinate, only X and Y. Using the Stake tool makes marking these changes in direction really easy, what I would like to do is create a report for each Stake instance with a number and the two coordinates in. Nothing fancy, just three columns. Try as I might I cannot find a way of doing this, is anyone out there able to help, or to suggest another way I can gather this information?

  11. Hi Is it possible to create a Report which counts the amount of Posts used in a Railing/Fence object. I have tried to create a report that counts the Symbol (in the case a custom symbol is used for Post) - with no luck. I also tried to see if there were records related to Post Postion - as the window that allows you to edit the posts does reproduce the amount of posts used... Also no such luck 🙂 What also would be nice is a way to reproduce the name of the type of Railing/Fence used - the Symbolname used as can be found via Settings > General > General configuration Thanks! Kind regards Carol
  12. Hi, Is there a way to create a report with selected objects. I am creating a planting schedule with data from a master plant file. Is there a way I can create a schedule for a selected number of landscape areas and individual plants without creating one for the whole site?
  13. So I'm designing a curtain wall that spans 2 floors and each have windows in them on 2 separate floors. Is it ok to design the symbol as one plug in object as if it were a window spanning two floors or am I building this wrong altogether. It seemed easier to just design it as one piece rather than design 2 separate systems that are slightly different one from the other. Will I run into problems down the line when making my window schedule? When I used to draw it in 2D, the whole curtain wall system would be under a single "window type" that would be considered as one curtain wall with casements where indicated. Maybe I'm overthinking this but I would love to get some feedback as to how some of you would handle designing a simple two story "storefront" system". Thanks
  14. Hi everyone, Is there a way to customize the reports one creates via the Title Block Manager? The reports I mean are the Project Revision and Issue History Reports. I'd like to place them all in the same sheet layer but I don't want the company info to be repeated in the three reports. I would very much appreciate a hand. I've tried editing this file: "Libraries\Defaults\Reports_Schedules\Title Block Reports.vwx" and then placing the edited file in my user folder under application support but I've had no success. Hope someone knows how to do it! I leave the part of the VW manual that has info on what I'm talking about: http://app-http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2019/eng/index.htm#t=VW2019_Guide%2FSetup%2FProject_Revision_and_Issue_History_Worksheets.htm&rhsyns=
  15. I know there are some workarounds for this, but it'd be nice to just have the option to have fixtures excluded from paperwork in the object info panel. Either that or being able to select the classes that the paperwork will create from. I have a class for all standard fixture elements, but I also have a separate class strictly for house lights, so I can visualize with them on. Being able to remove them somehow in a native feature would be brilliant.
  16. We produce our lighting drawings using custom symbols for light fittings. We then run a Symbol count report inside of VWX to get the QTYs of light fittings. This currently works fine but give us a total number of fittings across the whole project. What we'd like to be able to do is run the report but further segment it, by room / area. Is there a way to be able to define rooms / areas and run this report so it would output something like the below report mockup (see attached screenshot below) Im running VWX 2014 Architect. Although i do have a license for 2017 also, just havnt upgraded yet.
  17. Dear VW aficionados, could anyone please explain to me the difference between the below. Most likely I would understand a 'sketch or visualisation' to it better in comparison to reading the Help menu where I can't digest the content. --> Reports, Records, Databases, Worksheets & Schedules <-- Am getting utterly confused about these ;0)) Any input is appreciated. Cheers, Grethe
  18. Is there a way to create a report for symbols that have symbols within them? i have multiples of the same part and parts that have minor changes in them that use some of the parts and pieces from other parts and I want to create a report that generates a report of the total pieces used. Is that possible?
  19. I am working with a set of symbols that are simply rectangles with text that is linked to a 5-field record. When I insert the symbols in the Annotations layer, they do not generate any data in the report. It only works if I put them in the design layer. What am I missing here?
