Edit user defined field in the Window and Door PIO?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to edit the Field names for the User Fields in the window and Door PIO? It would be helpful to be able to define these values for easier data entry. Also, defining being able to modify the data type for the Field Value would be nice as well (i.e. boleen, text,etc.)

I know that WinDoor can do this,but not sure I am willing any more to shell out additional money as the price of VW rises for something as basic as the window and door plug ins.

Neither the Window or Door PIO shows up in the Edit Vectorscript.. dialogue.

Look in your Plug-Ins\Common\Data folder for a file named

"DoorPreferences.xml" or "WindowPreferences.xml"

You should copy this file over to your user folder.

In this file you are able to rename the User Fields. You are not able to change the type though.
