  1. Hi, Many a time where you happened to want to create a library but found it too cumbersome because the record information must be written directly in the resource manager rather than a spreadsheet? Is it possible to write existing record information inside of a symbol to the symbol definition please? This would tremendously expedite symbol and library creation.
  2. Hi everyone, Has anyone tried to write symbol instance record definition information to a symbol definition record using a marionette?
  3. Hello Everyone, In a bit of a bind here. Is there an easy way to update the record information from inside the workspace after the symbol has been inserted? I noticed that It's very easy modifying records from inside a work sheet, but it it doesn't update the attached record to the symbol inside of the resource manager. Is there a way to do this? Can anyone please help? Thank you in advance.
  4. Hi All, I can't wrap my head around this feature in the libraries. I have found the directory for both user libraries and workgroup libraries. Even if I add a file in there, it doesn't show up. Could someone help me out?
  5. I realized that all my Library Files from my Workgroup Folders show thumbnails but no large Preview Image. (Same for User Libraries ?) The solution is to manually open all of these directly in VW, which generates Previews, and saving them again. Only Converting Files with the Batch Command does not create Previews. As Batch Convert has already many function options, I wish for including an additional Checkbox to also create Previews. Or an Option in Ressource Manager to generate Previews from selected resources. Also I tried to download some 2017 Libraries from Service Select. Some may already have, but all that I tried also had no Previews generated and needed manual opening and saving. I was wondering as the Online Select Libraries in RM all seem to have Previews included. For the RM Select Libraries I have a question. I did not find a way to download a complete Resource File, for example into my Workgroup Folders, just to import a single Object into my current Drawing. Not even an RMB Option (for import) if I select more than one Object. Or no drag'n'drop.
  6. Just got off the phone with V'Works support. V'Works 2017 Spotlight. I had to call and ask where the location of the entertainment lighting instruments is. It's under Object Styles. I asked if I can move that to somewhere easier for my users, and they said that wouldn't be recommended. Best you can do is make a copy of it into your user libraries. Can I request that the location be moved to the root Libraries and perhaps be renamed to "Objects-Entertainment-Lighting Instruments"? I know that you can just use the drop-down menu when you select the instrument insertion tool, but I've got several users in the company here that just plain don't want to do that. They want to do things from the Resource Browser, and they're not going to be happy when I tell them that they have to remember that the location is in Object Styles.
