Symbol Z Value

Recommended Posts

I made a symbol. This is the first symbol I have made in Vectorworks. When I bring in the symbol from the resource browser it is not on the floor. It's lower. How can I change this symbol so that when inserted into a project it will appear on the floor?

Easiest way: first, go to front or side view to determine the exact distance the symbol needs to move in order to sit at Z=0. Next, double click (or right click) the symbol and choose Edit 3d. Once in the edit space, go a front view and Select All, then move all up or down the distance determined above. Now Exit the Edit space. The symbol should now behave as desired...
