  1. Importing existing files from pre-2019 seems to make the title block manager system even more unstable than with a new sheet. I have had to re-input every drawing number over a dozen times as they all revert back to previous numbers when opening an individual title block. Best wait for a patch for this disastrous feature before using it. I cannot trust the title block manager system from 2019 to retain any information correctly and would recommend keeping well clear of it. The title blocks can however be ungrouped once initially set for a project and this will give the ability to change the individual sheet information easily (as normal text boxes) and so be reasonably sure it will not change back at random...it is also far quicker than using the Manager system feature. I can only assume that whoever invented the latest tilteblock feature had no idea about the commercial reality of getting drawings done quickly and accurately but was wrapped up in providing a new 'functionality' gimmick...which would be forgivable perhaps if it worked!
  2. Vectorworks 2018 Issue. Existing titleblocks hold no placement data when updating a drawings titleblock to the current version. It forces the titleblock to away from the border and it will no long fit to page. Any tips, or is this a bug?
  3. I'm having issues with the 2018 SP3 titleblock. I've create a field that is a pulldown and defined the choices, but when I go to use that field, it gives me a check mark next to a blank value. Editing the field shows the pop-up values, but they never appear in the titleblock. Anyone else having this issue?
  4. Hello All I am having trouble getting my custom title block to be available with the use of the title block border tool. I have followed all of the steps for creating the title block and have placed it in the users/libraries/default/sheetborder-titleblocks folder but it won't show up when I create a new file and try to place it as a titleblock. Is there a step I am missing here? Thank you
  5. I there a way to make the paper size and used scales come in the titleblock automatically? As in picture 1 I am able to get the papersize in there through a record, but that's just for one presentation layer. If I make another presentation layer it will sum up the used papersizes. As you can see in picture 2 And is there a tutorial how to make a new titleblock in VW 2018? I imported this from VW 2016, but now I can't find how one thing is linked to another...
  6. Is there a way to reorganize the field in a title block?
  7. Running VW 2018 SP1 on Mac. We have a few fonts (specifically DIN) that we use for our drawings that are becoming distorted when exported to PDF. The characters become squished to look tall and narrow with lots of space between each letter. This is occurring in all text including titleblocks as well as drawing labels. Changing to a system font seems to fix this (tested with Helvetica). Unfortunately our title block was really designed around the DIN font, so changing the font would require a complete redesign of our titleblock. The problem can be fixed by checking the "rasterize text" option in the export to PDF window, but this is really not ideal. The font was working perfectly for us in VW 2017 and prior. Anybody else with font issues in 2018? Any possible solutions?
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. Hi All, I'm a new convert to VW and I'm going through the processes of setting up a host standard drawing elements for use in the future. I've followed the guide for the custom title block creation (http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2017/eng/VW2017_Guide/Setup/Creating_a_Custom_Title_Block.htm) and for the most part it's working as expected. I have a collection of P_ and S_ prefixes that are behaving. However, the pop-up fields are only showing up on the data tab of the object info palette. When I double click the title block the field that should be a pop-up is just a standard text field that I can populate freely. Have I missed a trick? Is there some way to force the 'double click' edit of the title block to also show the pop-up fields that I defined in the record? Many thanks, Dan
  11. Hi everyone, I have been wondering the new title block feature - is there a way to callout a time stamp (as opposed to a date stamp) for the titleblock? The time stamp tool doesn't work inside of the titleblock, and was wondering how that could be fixed? It useful in determining the latest revision of a set that might've not been issued as a new revision or a new issue set. Hoping to get some suggestions. The secret i think is in the new pop-up feature shown in the sheet and project dataset? Now, only if i knew a way to callout the timestamp function....
  12. Hi all, Is there a way to vectorscript an automatic update of dates in the titleblock fields prior to publishing? I understand there is the data stamp tool available but it just seems more direct if there was a plugin to execute that targets the date field. Gabriel VW2017 Spotlight user MacOS
  13. Hi, I have two separate issues. I've created a custom Smart Titleblock by editing a Vectorworks sheet border with our company logo and when I'm editing in 2d - the fonts show as desired but when I exit the symbol, they revert to some generic font. Is there anyway to change this? ALSO, when Creating Sheet Lists (Or Record Formats), is there anyway to add a record format that automatically creates assigns the Stacking Order of the sheet on the worksheet? I'd like to know what the record format for "stacking order" is. Thanks
  14. I have several VAA Titleblocks in a template. I also have a worksheet which shows the info from all titleblocks. As its in a template there are no revisions. However all the titleblocks show the current revision as A, even thou the list of all revisions shows as no entries. Images should hopefully show in more detail.
