Does anyone know how to use a formula in the 'formula' field in the Space Setting Additional Data section? (Vectorworks support didn't know, but the help manual says that is what it is for). My goal is perform a calculation of number of occupants (=#Gross Area#/#AreaPerOccupant#), to then report on a data tag. However, whatever I put in the formula field just shows up as text when reported... (Attached is a sample file in 2019). Any suggestion of how to solve this, or other ways to get the number of occupants to show up on the data tag would be very much appreciated! Occupancy Data Tag.vwx
Hi, I wonder if anyone knows who are the best way to get the height from a solid. I'm working on a single house in a sloped terrain, their wooden posts have different heights but with a standard notched end. The Issue begins when I try to get the heights from those "solid subtractions" on the worksheets. Normally I use the "framing member tool" to get those dimensions correctly, but in this case I've to make an extra operation because the notch. I've tried to convert them in other kind of objects like "generic solid", or "extrude along path" without success, I suppose there may be a formula or something that allows me to get the dimensions I need. Thanks!
I'm just learning about worksheets and have learned a lot on the forum. But i can't seem to find an answer to a very basic procedure. I'm creating a Door schedule and have used the User Field 1 in each of the doors for the price. With ='Door'.'UserFld1' placed in the worksheet database header, each of the database subrows have the correct price and have been formatted with decimal and the leader $. But the database header row only shows the number of doors with a dollar sign in front. How would i show the total price of all the doors in the last cell of the column? Is there a better way to do this that i'm missing?
