Class Naming

Recommended Posts

Hello - I'm using a workgroup reference of a site survey in a building project in VW 12.5. The survey file has many classes assigned by the surveyor that are helpful to keep when using the WGR to create viewports in my building file. Is there a fast method to place a prefix in front of all the class names that are from the referenced survey such as "S-imported class name" or "SITE-imported class name"? How do I manage to keep WGR classes seperate yet still usable in a file?

when you import file in VectorWorks 2008 there is now an option to add a Prefix to all DXF layers. But this not available in VectorWorks 12. There might be a 3rd party utility that someone has..

there is a 3rd party plugin on vectordepot.com . I have not tried it but it sound like what you might be interested in.
