  1. Hi there, Any thoughts as to why my Windoor ID tags are not showing up correctly in elevation? For context the elevation is created using a section viewport placed onto a design layer that is the same scale as the model plan layers (1:100). Correct classes all appear to be on, and viewport is set to display planar objects. As you can see in the attached image the tag can be seen, but the actual ID number is missing. There is no trouble viewing the IDs in any plans. Thanks in advance.
  2. I am trying to set up an efficient office standard system for setting up Window and Door schedules using drawing templates, styled WinDoor objects, record info and worksheets. I have seen this recent thread. https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/58464-favoured-window-schedule-workflows/ which is great however I am using WinDoor objects rather than native window and door objects so maybe the WinDoor experts might be able to help? This is all fairly new to me so any help or suggestions from anyone would be appreciated! At the moment I am looking at setting up 2x worksheets to be used together: 1) The actual schedule that would go on the Drawing sheet. 2) A "WinDoor Housekeeping" two-way report worksheet that can be used to edit the WinDoor objects quickly and efficiently. I like this as you can quickly pick up any inconsistencies in your doors & windows and correct them. This report would reside in the Resource Manager (not be put on an actual drawings). So far so good. I have set up both worksheets. I have gone through all the available records available from the WinDoor plug-in. A couple of little things though maybe someone could help with: Is there a way I can show the WinDoor style of my windoor objects in a worksheet? It would be good to be able to cross check what style(s) are in use in a file. I can't find this as a record. The other thing is with the WinDoor user fields. The "Schedule Data" tab of the settings tab lets you use presets for the user fields. If I use the "Door Height x Door Width" preset for a user field it is picked up in the worksheet which is great however if I later edit the door size the preset value in the Schedule Data tab doesn't update (let alone update to the worksheet). Is this working as designed or am I missing something? I guess being a "preset" it is like a default initial value however the interesting thing is that for the ID Symbols if you use the second ID field for the same "Door Height x Door Width" the ID tags will auto update when you change the door dimensions. In the screen shot attached you can see the ID Symbol updated to an 810x2000 door but the preset value is still on 2010x760. To update the preset value I have to go into the settings dialogue of each WinDoor object one by one which clearly isn't what I want to do. Is there a way to "reset" or "regenerate" WinDoor objects so these fields update? Unfortunately there is no "door height" record though there is a "door width" one which auto updates to the worksheets. I've also noticed door heights shown in the OIP differ from those shown in the form dialogue too... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Windoor Id tool VW 2019 not working

    So it seems after updating to 2019 the Windoor ID tool does not work as it did in 2018. Each time I click on a windoor in a wall it gives me the error message "First click must be on a windoor object". After a bit of mucking around I it seems that the Tool works if the Windoor is not IN the wall. Anyone else noticed this? and is there a fix? Or maybe an updated Windoor ID tool plugin to work with 2019? Cheers, Steve
  4. Trying to get a schedule to show the width of my glazing just for pricing purposes, so I want to round things off to the nearest 10mm. Currently, the schedule (set as a database) is pulling from the windoor objects and I have set 'user2' to the 'overall width'. I can add 'ROUND' or 'INT' but that just makes the numbers all appear as 50mm which is not even in the same ball park - do the functions not work with numbers pulled from objects. =('WinDoor 6.0'.'__User2') =ROUND('WinDoor 6.0'.'__User2') Thanks.

    Windoor schedules

    HI I use Windoor for my windows and doors. I have generated a Windoor schedule with images but it keeps creating a schedule with 3 copies of each window object. Each Windoor object has the plan and elevation ID switched on. I experimented with switching those off in case the program was counting the object and the 2 ids resulting in 3 copies. It still came up with 3 copies. Has anyone else had this problem and was able to solve it? Ta PS I just got this from Julian Carr who makes Windoor Might help others. It is likely you are using design layer viewports and the schedule is counting objects in these too. You can fix it this way. 1. Open the worksheet for editing and choose Database Headers from the Worksheet's View menu. 2. Right click in the very left cell with a single number beside a little diamond and choose Edit Criteria. 3. Uncheck the two boxes that refer to Design Layer Viewports, then click OK. This will exclude objects in these viewports. The worksheet should now update correctly.
  6. In VW2017 all of a sudden in elevation all Window IDs from opposite side of structure are showing. Any ideas why? Is this a bug or a setting?
  7. I have a wall style which has skirting, gib (plaster) lining and timber framing. In plan views we dont show the skirting and gib (plaster) lining, we only show the frame. The windoors options for thickness all seem to recognize the overall width not the core component. In the setting I have replaced the 150mm (overall width) with 90mm (frame width). When I exit there is no change and when I re-enter the dimensions have reverted to 150mm. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Windoor ID More Options

    With the windoor tool you can set different ID symbols depending on what schedule they are, eg door, window etc. Im thinking my query isn't possible but will ask anyway. First query: Is there any way to add more than just a second field for the ID, eg in the image I have selected Unit width x unit height I would also like to have a field for head height and possibly another one such as User Additional Info so that I can enter a lintel size. Second query: The ID shown in the image is great for a floor plan at 1:50 however in the elevations which are at 1:100 the text is too small and has the second line of information which isn't required. Have tried to edit the ID symbol in the resource browser and make the second line of text have a different class, however this had no effect and still reverted to the visibility and attributes of the none class.
