  1. I would like to create a worksheet of all the Viewports in my drawing and most specifically what scale they are. Available criteria for viewports are limited. Is there a worksheet function I could use to achieve this? Many thanks. Mark
  2. Greetings, I'm having a peculiar issue with the new title block tool in VW Spotlight 2018. I'm not having any issue with placing or scaling sheet borders, however every title block I attempt to place or update from an earlier version drawing shrinks to a completely useless size. As far as I can tell there is no adjustment on this sizing and aside from custom creating a title block, I cant work with it. Am I missing something or is this part of a title block bug? I've included a test file that contains only the border and title block in question. Any insight is appreciated. In the meantime, I'll just be firing up VW2017 to use as a title block tool o_O. title test.vwx
  3. So I've created a template title block for us to use in the office. Ive set up its size, our logo and all the other bits and it works fine. However....theres always a however right....I want to be able to have the option of changing the scale bar to suit the drawing that is on the sheet. My template drawing that I request people start with has a sheet already set up that they can duplicate (so it takes all the info with it) but the scale bar on this sheet is say 1:50 but the new sheet might be 1:100 - how best to do this? Is it just a case of creating multiple title blocks in my resource browser and replacing them (using the 'replace' in OIP) when required? I feel I will have lots of title templates, which is fine but want to check before I start creating them all. I hope this makes sense and apologies if the question has already been asked (I did try and search the forums.)
  4. Hi all, Is there a way to scale a dashed line in a easy way? AFAIK the only way to do it is via Advance Viewport Properties: Line Type Scale. Cheers, Juan
  5. Originally in Marionette (I guess in VW 2016), I never had any trouble with the graphic relationships of nodes to each other and to their wires. Regardless of the design layer drawing scale which a network (or at least a Marionette object) was created or used in, there was never an issue with this. Now, I guess in 2017, nodes have been changed so that they are in page units... and unless the scale of the design layer in which a Marionette object is created matches that of the design layer where it's being used, editing the script features all of the nodes piled up on each other and/or very long, even disconnected wires and tiny nodes (relatively speaking). It seems the relationships of nodes to each other and their wires should always remain the same, regardless of drawing scale (and even regardless of whether they are in page or world units). This is reminiscent of callouts, which can't be saved as PIO symbols, because when placed in design layers of differing scales, the relationships of their leader lines to the callouts themselves are not preserved. Or maybe I'm completely missing something?...
  6. Hello, I am simply trying to scale down some objects in a very rough way so that it can fit on a page and be printed. The only way I know how is to go into the modify menu and scaling it that way. Its a very tedious method of doing this as I am not sure how much I need to scale, and therefore constanly adjusting. Is there a way to have like a sort of scale box where I can simply drag the scale larger and smaller? Essentially I am trying to visually see the scale adjustment with a single command so that I dont need to guesstimate constantly, while re adjusting. Kind of like the scale tool in Autocad and Sketchup Any help would be really appreciated!
  7. I'm having issues getting a DWG file that was drawn in metric to import in 1/4" scale. The issue is when I import the file and tell it to be in imperial units and 1/4" scale, the drawing shrinks down to peanut size on the page. Then when I dimension line it, the dim lins are HUGE compared to the drawing. I'm thinking that the dim lines are probably in 1/4" scale, but the drawing itself is not for some reason. Can anyone help?
  8. This may seem like a peculiar request, but it would be nice to be able to select "=" or ":" for metric or imperial scales. I like to use ":" when using imperial because scale is still a ratio to me, not an equal.
  9. I have a file that I have drafted in 1/4" scale that I'd like to scale up to 1:1, since it would be easier to manipulate. Is there an easy way to do this without messing up the dimensions of my drawing? Beauty_and_the_Beast_Plot.vwx
  10. Hi All, I have followed all of the steps of all of the tutorials out there for creating a custom title block. It works great on the sheet size it was created for but, as they all say, it should scale and when I pick a different sheet size and insert the title block, it stays the original size. Please help!
