Using "plot & model view" and worksheets

Recommended Posts

Hi all


I like to use the "plot & model view" command for showing vertical trusses with light fixtures in both lighting plots 3D renders. Problem is when I generate worksheets from the "create report" command, I get all the lighting instruments used in the "plot & model view" shown twice in the generated worksheets. 


Is there a work around for this? I like to use worksheets for entering light data info.

Edit the criteria of the worksheet database row to either specifically include the layer that has plot view or specifically exclude the model view or vice versa.


Objects in viewports are counted as separate objects as far as worksheets are concerned, so you have to be specific in WHERE you get/count the objects from.


Ask again if this was not clear enough

In the Create report dialogue uncheck “design layer viewports” which I think is on by default.
