page based symbols

Recommended Posts

does anyone know how to change page-based symbols into world based symbols?

It has to do with units

I found out after setting up my symbols some were (info pallet) page based (green text) and the first few are world based (black text) .....

which I do not understand how this is possible.

Hopefully someone does

Edit the Symbol from the Resource Browser and choose Symbol Options from the four options available. In the dialog box that opens at the top there is a section for Units. Select World Based

Additionally, some of the hatches that ship with Vectorworks are Page Based which I tend to convert over to world.

If during a Symbol's creation you set it to Page Based this becomes the default until you reset it back to World Based. Thus you only need to have created one Page Based symbol to get caught out.
