Trying to make connector panels equipment item not working?

Recommended Posts

I'm following this article http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/ConnectCAD/Creating_connector_panel_layouts.htm and trying to build panels first before having a schematic.


I am in the rack elevation design layer and i select the equipment item tool and click on the screen to use it and it brings up the equipment item object properties and this is where some weirdness starts happening.  First off the custom panel dropdown has 2 buttons get connectors and create panel devices but neither button does anything.  when i type in a name and then click off that field the whole object properties changes it now has the fields name, model, width, room id, slotid, rack uid, and user 4, under user 4 are the buttons that used to be get connectors and create panel devices but now they read user5 and user6 and they still dont do anything. 


What am i doing wrong here?  ive tried opening a new session =using the connectcad template and still same thing.

Hello @spljohn,


Thank you for your feedback on this issue. We are aware of it and it will be fixed in the next service pack.

As a workaround for now, it is better to create the Equipment Item object without making any edits in its Preferences dialog and after that edit the created object from its OIP.


Best Regards,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov
