unwanted classes when pasting from another file

Question

Guest

Posted for Kazis from the Architectural Thread:

When you copy "let 's say an object X" from a WV drawig file A and paste it in another WF drawing fileB it brings the classes of X into B without any warning. It's fine when the classes are existing in B but sometimes you don't want new classes to be created.

Is there a possibility that vector works could do a warning asking " do you want to create new classes when pasting" or somthing like that.

To avoid this problem of importing unwanted classes what can I do.

thanks from Paris France

I will add this feature to our wish list and hopefully sometime in the near future this will be implemented to our program.

Add to that the following two functions:

1. When user goes to the "edit saved sheets" and brings up the class/layer settings for a particular sheet, any name of any classes or layers that have been Added to the file since that sheet was first saved (or last edited) is underlined. This would serve to call out to the user that those are the setting's they need to address to update their saved sheet as desired. (Check out how "Conflict Catcher" handles changes to user-defined "Sets")

2. An external text file that keeps track of changes to vital preferences and settings for each file that the user can call up either via a menu command or in an updateable worksheet. It would have a column for Title of the particular setting description (default attributes by class, classes, layers, dimension standards, z-hts by layer, scales by layers, blah blah blah). Next column would have date of original set up / next column would have the actual settings for original date. After that, Every time a change is made to the file's standards, three new columns would be added: 1 for the date of change, 1 for the new settings, and the third column would be an "approved" cell, which user must manually check off for the altered standards to go into affect for that file.
