Ungroup in VW2018 also removes the attached records?

Recommended Posts

It seems that Ungroup (either invoked via script or manually) now prevents any attached records from transferring to the constituents parts of the group. Is this a change or am I missing something here (eg. it is a preference setting)?

Any help would be much appreciated.

When you ungroup do you get the attached dialog box? If not, at some point you checked the Always do the selected action check box and clicked No.

 

If this is the case, go to Vectorworks Preferences, Session tab and click the Reset Saved Setting button. Choose the Always do selected action choices and click OK. This will clear ALL of you Always do choices and the next time you do the ungroup it will ask again.

That is brilliant - thanks so much. I was thinking it had to be that setting but I just could not find how to get to it!

 

It was a bit of a slog but, with that now answered, I THINK I have managed to get all of my tools working within VW 2018.

Pat, it figures you'd get here first. I posted an answer in an older post, a half a day late and 50¢ short. I really should read all posts before answering any.

It is a competition Raymond.  First to 50 late posts has to buy the next round.  Right now, I think I have the lead. Another 7 late posts and I buy. On top of the 5 I already owe. It should be a fun night. ;-)

Pat,

   You're doing arithmetic after midnight (my time). You win. My mind is already mush. Please define "Late posts" – Are you counting posts after midnight, or posts we both try to answer? Who's the keeper of the tally? When did it start? What's the score right now? If this is a race from now to sunrise I think I'll concede – a good night's sleep vs. a beer; I'll gladly buy the beer  ;-) Did I mention my mind is mush? Simple arithmetic - when it stops being simple, it's way past my bed time. That's been my litmus test for several decades now. It's how I tell myself I need to go to bed.    g'night...
