Does anyone know how to access the Key field from the Finishes database? For example, [CT-1] would be the key with the description Ceramic Tile, 4" x 4", etc. In VW we enter finishes by editing a database and entering these values, but in a finish schedule report, we only have access to a concatenation of Key and Description (which would be Floor Finishes Edit, or Space.Finish Floor and read as "[CT-1] Ceramic Tile, 4" x 4", etc." in the finish schedule), or alternatively the finish description only (which would be Static Floor Finishes, or Space.Floor Finish and read as "Ceramic Tile, 4" x 4", etc." in the finish schedule). Ideally, we would want to use the Key field in a finish schedule, not a length description.
The 2019 Data tag tool looks really good. Tagging objects is simple but I cannot figure out how to use the information properly. The space labels I had set up in 2018 for finish plan and floor plans no longer work in 2019. I think I can modify the graphics of the new room data tags but I can't get the info to layout correctly in a room schedule. I cannot find any procedures on how to tag a space and generate a room schedule base on the 2019 data tag tool. I'm sure I can come up with a work around but there has to be a procedure that Vectorworks has worked through using the 2019 tool sets. How is Vectorworks designed to tag a space and make a room finish schedule? Is there a file or video out there that can show me?
