Referencing Symbols from Project Sharing file to Elevations / Sections sheet files

Recommended Posts

We are having difficulties Referencing Symbols from Project Sharing file to Elevations / Sections sheet files, mainly the Level symbols, and grid lines symbol. Things that we use in both Elevations, plans and sections at all scales.

 

We have a project sharing file, with multiple users for one bldg only (10 stories, 256 apartments), which is working fine. we than have separate vectorworks sheet files for plans / elevations / sections, which generate all the sheets as above. Referencing in the main Working file. but we can't get in the grid line symbols nor the level symbols, as we get an error message saying that the Working file cannot be referenced in (only the Project file), which we know... but the symbol is inside the project file, and not reachable from within the resource browser.

 

is there a way around this somehow?

 

kind regards anton

Hello Anton,

 

What version of Vectorworks are you using?

 

You cannot reference resources from a Working File since Working Files are temporary files .  You can, however, reference resources from a Project File into your Elevation & Section files. You should be able to browse a Project File using the "Browse a Document..." menu action of the Resource Manager. 

 

Regards,

Tolu
