    Create Layer - Layer Order

    Hi All I have a question about the Layer Order, when i use "Layer with Type" or "Layer". I have textfields wich i manipulate with some "String replacer" before it reverse the list* and create Layers. The Order of the Layers are in the correct range then. But if i only add some new Nodes, which have nothing to do with the create layer section, the Order will change. I have no idea what affects the layer order. It seems to me completely arbitrary. *I need the reverse node - without it, the order mess is way larger. How can I determine and influence the order? Greetings KroVex

    Problem with 2D Object in 3D

    Hi there, usually you can create a 2D object and change the Plane in the "Object Info" window to layer so it appears in 3D views. Usually you can also change the z axis and move the object in 3D space. Now i have the problem that i can do all that except setting the z Axis. As soon I enter a digit into the z coord. and hit enter, the plane changes to screen and resets the z coord.. This only happens in the current document I am working in. Also when I open the document stay in Top/Plan view, I can change the plane to layer and set the z coord without resetting. After i change into 3D view I no longer can do this. Does any one know a solution to this? -Alex working with VW2019 SP3 on a Mac Mojave 10.14
  3. Hello everyone. I am trying to do something that looks easy but I don´t find the right functions: "To change the position of a design layer" The initial situation is this one: Design Layer # Design Layer A --> 1 Design Layer B --> 2 Design Layer D --> 3 I want the layers like this: Design Layer # Design Layer A --> 1 Design Layer B --> 2 Design Layer C --> 3 Design Layer D --> 4 Must be not so difficult to insert a new in a position because I can do manually when I create a new layer. I need to know how to get the number of the "Design Layer B" --> 2 And be able to create a new layer at the next number. this are my options, and no one is useful to my eyes vs.Layer("Design Layer B") vs.CreateLayer('NEW Design Layer', 1) vs.CreateLayer('NEW PRESENTATION Layer = LAYOUT', 2) Any idea?

    Ifc import and classes

    Hello I'm looking to understand if an ifc import is supposed to have classes and or layers? A single design layer is created just like in a DWG import. However no other classes import and every 3d object is a generic solid. Is this supposed to happen this way? The ifc file is being exported from CAtia and I can't seem to find any information on if i'm seeing whats the norm or if there is something I am doing wrong? Do i ask for another file? They sent me an STEP file and all it does it trigger the wait rainbow ball from hell for a long time. Am i to assume i just need to give this file more time as its importing a lot of information? So as you can see. I need to know its me or is it you? George Costanza "I invented it's not me it's you." Love Len
  5. This is a wish for an override for imported plane attributes to match the preferences of the main file: main file document preferences set up to 'screen plane only' - (or whichever) import the selected items from other file into main file vwx detects that 'objects being imported into current file have plane different to document preferences' question then is asked - 'would you like to change their plane to match current preferences?' - select yes or no, imported object planes are amended BOOM! - No more imported objects in different planes This would have to include groups, symbols, lines, poylines etc Don't see how this is any different from when you import textures or symbols that are the same - it always comes up with a warning symbol like the above. Thanks
  6. Hello all I have a little Problem about to create Sheet Layer by Name, with the Node "Layer With Type" . The name is created by the layer number instead of the Layer Name (red arrow), and I have no idea how to change it: I tried to add the "vs.NumLayers ( ):" command to the node, but it did not work: And yes, I only have little script experience... Does anyone have a idea how I can customize that? KroVex Work with VW 2018 Designer (German Edition).

    Force Select won't capture class

    Hi there, I've noticed that whenever I 'Force Select' an object, it activates the layer but doesn't change the active class. This has been the case among many documents, and occurred with VW 2017 as well. Any thoughts?
  8. Through the layers button in the OIP it is possible to rearrange layers in a viewport. It would be nice if the same could be done in the organizer through visibility settings for viewports to be able to rearrange layers for multiple viewports in one go. Or select multiple viewports in detail view and the edit option allows to do the same for layers visible in all of the selected viewports. Just ran into a situation where it would have been really convenient. I had to add several additional layers through importing them from another document, the imported layers ended up near the top of the layer list in the viewports but should be near the bottom. Now I had to rearrange multiple layers in about two dozen viewports one viewport at a time. Having this option to rearrange layer order in viewports in the organizer's visibility would have saved quite a bit of time.
  9. Hi all, I seem to be unable to select objects from other layers other than the one from my active layer. It seem to me the only way to go about doing it is to right click the object and choosing force select. I have checked online and the impression I get is that i shouldn't have to do this as my setting for my class is "show/snap/modify others". However, in my 3rd screenshot as i dragged my cursor over the area shown, only my 2 lights fixture turn orange(this orange did not appear in my screenshot) and not the 2 rectangles which are TVs. This is the same when i try to click on any other thing. Does anyone know if i need to check on any other settings?
  10. I think I mis-typed a key command, but all of a sudden my design layers do not rotate together. I have the theater on one layer and my set on another but when I change the view, either by Flyover or View dropdown, only the currently active layer rotates. How do I make them rotate together again? Thanks!
  11. The pictures show the problem I'm having on my projects where I have alot of layers. On my usual "palette"-monitor, the horizontal monitor, I can't see the bottom layers, and not even the button to move down the list. When using the keyboard to move down the list I don't get a indication what layer is currently being highlighted. When I move the palette over to my vertical monitor I can see the whole list and the button. When I then move the palette down such that the bottom of the palette is out of the screen I get the drop-down menu lifted such that I can see all the layers. Is there a way to keep using my horizontal monitor for this palette or do I have to move it to my vertical monitor? First world problem, I know...
  12. I get a crash everytime I want to assign symbols to another layer or a new layer: - select symbol - chose OIP Layer, new design layer - rename the Layer - Enter - CRASH Anyone else has this problem ???
  13. Would it be possible to have the text field in the New Class and Layers box offer auto-complete suggestions? So in the Classes the box could offer class family names already in the file and in layers would offer storey prefixes. Also could offer class names from a set of standard as well.
