`displaying plant tags without symbols

Recommended Posts

I've created my plant tags on a separate layer to the plant symbols in the hope that I can display the tags without having the symbol displayed. I've only drawn the symbols to get quantities but the drawing is too cluttered with them visible.

Unfortunately, if I turn off the layer with the symbols on the tags disappear even though they are on a separate one!

Any suggestions?

Hi Dai

Make sure your symbols & tags are in different classes then just turn off the symbol class(es). (Edit the plant symbol to change its class, use the Tag Class option in the Plant definition to assign those). You can also tweak the rendering of the plants (Plant defintion/rendering/outline & mass overlapping plants) so the plant groups are outlined rather than showing the symbols - might make for a cleaner presentation?

Cheers

Thanks Keith

I have the tag and the symbol in different classes and can turn off the tags without turning off the symbol bu tnot the other way around!

I imagine VW couldn't foresee someone wanting to tag something that wasn't displayed!
