Windoor Id tool VW 2019 not working

Question

So it seems after updating to 2019 the Windoor ID tool does not work as it did in 2018. Each time I click on a windoor in a wall it gives me the error message "First click must be on a windoor object". After a bit of mucking around I it seems that the Tool works if the Windoor is not IN the wall. Anyone else noticed this? and is there a fix? Or maybe an updated Windoor ID tool plugin to work with 2019?

 

Cheers,

Steve

I’ve not used the I’d tool but I have been using the new tag tool, have you tried setting up a tag tool for Windoor yet, it works well and can be added in viewports

I had a little bit of a go. But Couldn't figure it out how to offset the ID's and make them auto increment. How did you set it up? Would be interested if it worked well.

The Windoor ID tool is doesn't work for me either in VW2019 

The workflow to use the Data Tag tool needs to be a little different to work at the moment, as far as I can tell there doesn't seem to be access to the auto-numbering when placing Data Tags.

The way I found that works for now is to place your tags in a viewport as normal then go back to the layer with the Windoor objects on select one/settings in PIO and update using the 'ID numbers on the drawings to match list' button.Windoor_Tag Example 2018_09_28.vwx

The positioning seems to have no control but you can select the Tags and then use the appropriate align tool.

I've attached a tag style which is probably similar to what you have already tried,  you can also edit the schedule type from the data palette with this version.

@ColinW  If you go into your resource browser and Edit your Data Tag / Then edit Tag Layout / Then select the Text you can actually give the text attributes to Auto Increment. 

 

The only thing I still can't figure out is how to Set the tool to Offset the Tag to one side of the windoor. There is "Auto Placement settings" in the Data Tag Syles but no matter what I change that Value to it doesn't seem to make a difference...@ColinW were you able to fix this?

I’ve just got my head around the windoor ID tool so bummed to hear it doesn’t work in 2019.

I haven’t tried the new data tag yet and there is also the VAA Multi stamp tool which links to windoor items tho I haven’t tried that out either.

is the VAA multi stamp not an option?

Hi Boh,

 

I am on VW2019 SP6 and I have the error message "First click must be on a windoor object"

Is there any hope its working on VW2020? 

 

Thanks

I get that occassionally but it is only because I am clicking on another object that is ontop of the windoor object (It may note be easily apparent sometimes). I am using vw2109

I had this issue in SP3, Julian couldn't trigger the bug on his own computer so it never got properly identified. After a lot of messing around, I found the issue went away if I undocked the snapping palette, it's worth a try!  When SP4 was released, I could dock the snapping palette again without causing the bug, SP5.1 is working ok also.

This works! I can not see what the link between the tool and the snapping palette is but I am glad you find it out.  Thanks again!

Why don't you upgrade to 2109! 🙂

 

The latest/ last service pack for vw2019 is sp6.

Yeah, it's a weird bug. We couldn't replicate it on two different computers with the same OS and VW versions, so it may be specific to certain graphics setups or something similar. Could be why you're not seeing it in SP6 Boh and Jens is.
