Format Worksheets/Spreadsheets to fit page size and print across multiple pages

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm replicating a thread that was posted on the Vectorworks Spotlight Users Facebook page.  We feel this is a topic best for the official forums to get additional input on the topic.


The overall ask is that the worksheets and spreadsheets have more format functionality and enhanced user friendliness.  


The ability to create custom worksheets to sort through all that data is huge but for most, not being able to present that data in manner that is formatted and printable to specified page sizes is huge issue.  Most users export the worksheet to an external spreadsheet program, often complaining of lost data, additional steps to their work flow, and having to repeat the process when the drawing changes the data.  I personally have tried keeping the workflow within VW by creating a sheet layer for each worksheet/spreadsheet but often run into the challenge of the spreadsheet/worksheet runs longer that the page size.  My only option at that point is to try to split the worksheet up so I can print on two separate sheet layers.


It would be great if VW can pay some attention to the worksheet/spreadsheets.  They're a great resource but some love would make them even more robust.
