  1. It would be great if we got the option to attach a record to a symbol with the possibilty to distribute the edited information in record to all other symbols with the same name. At the moment the only way to change the information in the record and distribute it to all the symbols is through a worksheet. This is not ideal, because 90% of the time you don't have the worksheet open or ready when you are editing info in the data tab of the OIP

    Undo and Symbol Record Data Refresh

    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?

    Multiple records in 1 marionette script

    Hey, I added a small part of a script to explain where I get stuck. What I want to achieve is to link a record to each component made in the script. I want to use records because i want to filter the data. Unfortunately, I think only one record can be linked to an object-node. In my example I create 2 records (same name) and only one is visible. Is there a way to associate a record to each piece in the script? It is not necessary to see the records in the oip , if its possible to get the data in a regular worksheet it would be perfect. A worksheet in the script is possible (used custom nodes #Created by MFarrell) . In the worksheet I can see the data from the two parts created. Problem there is, if the object instance returns 5 times i get only one worksheet in the resource manager. Can someone help me out? Maybe i have to approach it differently. Every hint is welcome. 1objectnode2records.vwx

    This example shows, how to create a record format with fields from an external csv or text-tab file with marionette. This example maybe needs the following know how which is not automatically is handled by the script: 1. Save Text with excel, open office or any other application as separated text file or tab separated text file. 2. Setup the "import txt" node-popup with the needed text encoding. Try utf-8, Latin1, macLatin_2 or other encoding to handle umlauts or special character issues. 3. The Exmaple just checks the first line of the text-file and creates record fields from them 4. The path to the text-input in the attached example is related to the document path. Save first your Vectorworks document. Or use an absolute path input. 5. No warranty or charge for this script, play first on a new file or on the attached file. I whish you success with it
  5. Having issues trying to get the Titleblock Style to show the file path of the drawing. Attached record, and enabled the option, yet still nothing. Has anyone else the same issue or advise me on what to do properly?
  6. Hi there, I am working on a project where i created a marionette object node (thanks to this forum it works so far) with a couple of adjustable parameters in the OIP. Is there a way to get access to those parameters to create a worksheet that lists all the object instances and there parameter settings? Before i knew marionette i used databases (records) to store all that information but within the object node i can't do it since it groups everything on the last step. I hope someone understands what i mean and ideally has an idea to make it work. thank you very much in advance Benny
  7. 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.
  8. Hi there, I have a problem with the linked texts inside the symbol blocks. When I see them in any type of 3D visualization even in wireframe, I can see all the information pulled from the record without any problem, but when I try to visualize the symbol not in plan view, with the hidden line mode on, all those data disappear. Anyone knows how can I do to show the linked information inside the symbol block even in hidden line mode? Thanks

    Creating a bill of materials

    I`m trying to create a bill of materials for a table design. The idea was to create a worksheet to count all the symbols in the design (every part of the table is a symbol) and add a column to type a description for every symbol. But this doesnt seem to be possible. Is this correct? I want to add text in the blue part. If this is not possible: Probably attaching record is the way to go. Only me is told that i have to 'reload/replace' all the symbols on al the design layers to give it the record/info I attached to the symbol. Is there a way to attach the record to symbol and 'send' the information in it to all exciting symbols without replacing them? Thanks!
