title block as a symbol issue

Recommended Posts

hi,

i've just tried to make a custom title block for my projects, according to the vw resource 'Creating a Custom Title Block in Vectorworks Fundamentals' and a video (of the vw2008 version):

custom title block (video)

the trouble is that after the creation of the texts, outlines and data record, the created symbol loses all line geometry, only text blocks remain. even if i edit the 2d component of the symbol, adding the missing lines, the result is the same, all outlines are gone, either.

the 2d geometry is all screen objects, i've tried with single lines and the grouped outlines, but to no avail.

does anybody have a clue what's going on?

thx,

rob

ok, here's the file (vw2012).

the left part is the remaining symbol instance trace, to the right the copy of the initial block before turning to a symbol.

It looks like your linework is 3D Polygons. Convert them to 2D lines and/or polygons and you shouldn't have any more problems.

i can't recall why they were 3d, but that was exactly the case.
