QTY of Selected object

Recommended Posts



When I selected a "group" of plants, the qty is given in the Object Info - Data Palette (See picture QTY1.gif attached). But when I select many "groups" of plants, the total quantity doesnt show. Can anyone help me? (See picture QTY2.gif attached) thanks!

Hi Kevin,

This is when I use different "Poly-Vertex Placement Mode" for different groups of plants.


It gives me the quantity per group using the "Poly-Vertex Placement Mode" but when I select several groups (as in the photo attached in 1st post), the Quantity area is blank. 

Really need help on this one to make a Bill of Quantities.


Any help or guide would be much appreciated!!!

I'm not a power user of the Landmark features, not yet anyway. Maybe @Tamsin Slatter will have better ideas.


If the plants are a symbol, you should be able to generate or create a report with the proper inventory.


If those plants are grouped, VWX should only see the groups as object, not the objects within the groups, unless you pul out the symbol.


If you, like me, don't love the polyline drawing tools, have you tried creating the poly lines in another way, and then using the Modify>Create Objects from shapes command?

Two possible solutions:


 1) Set both Plant (groups) to be On Plant List and create your BOM as a Tools>Report>Create Report / Peformatted Report>Plant List or

2) Select Both>Right Click>Change Plant Grouping
