Defining the LineStyle

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I was looking around a little bit about information on how define the linestyle of an object.

There is  a Linestyle bug thread but it doesn't help.

If I try to run the network Marissa provided in the last post I get an error message.


My task seems to be easy: I'd like to define the line style for a polygon. But how do know the index numbers for the self defined line styles in my document?

Are you in a non-English version of Vectorworks? I've learned that my network may only work with English. I have a node in progress that will work in any language.

Yes, it's the German version.

Do you know of some kind of workaround, until the network works with non-English versions?

The issue is that the file name for line styles is translated in non-English versions. You should be able to change the filename in the node script to what your file is named and it should work.
