I updated to vectorworks 2020, and I can't find the Spotlight Numbering tool. I've done some searches online, but there is nothing about it. The AutoNumber tool is there, but when I select it nothing happens. I read somewhere about it being part of the legacy tool set, but I don't know how to find that either. Attached is a screenshot of my dropdown menu.
so after some figuring out I have a custom title block via sheet border, it works with VW sheet list and with my data based drawing list. All three are linked and one changes the other with some prodding (double click, move and shake). One more thing I need to figure out is how to get the sheet/page number in the set, not sheet number like A-100 but page in the set: 1 of 50. Along with that the total number of pages in the set. I can control it now via my data based spreadsheet but its a manual operation (a - change the spreadsheet numbers, then "shake" the title blocks and miracle happens). What I am asking is whether there is a Record Format script definition that can read VW sheet list and interact with it (like: S_Page No:_SN), I tried standard title block and none of the record formats seem to work to that effect. Thanks for any insights
In the attached photo is a custom position label symbol, with a custom record format. I am experiencing an issue where the symbol does not refresh to its previous data when executing the undo command. The top symbol shows the 'Position Label Field' with the default value P-##, and the bottom field shows the 'Position Label Field' with the modified value from the Spotlight Numbering tool, using the Object with Record option, 1. For this example I executed the undo command, and as you'll see in the OIP it reverts to the original field data, however a nudge will be required to refresh the symbol so it will update. The action of nudging symbols after undoing a numbering action is not ideal. Has anyone else had this experience?
