2021 - Linking Text to Record for userx records does not render on symbol

Recommended Posts

@Vectorworks team


We have identified a bug in VW2021 which has been reproduced in both our migrated file, and a file created from scratch.


The issue is that for our device symbols, we customize our dev_label_generic with additional text fields that are linked to the user1, user2, user3 dev_rec record type to show the additional info that we have for them.


This is not working right now. The good news is that the data is still there, so I am not worried about it for now, but it needs to be fixed.


Please see attached screenshots of the issue and a blank file created and reproduced with it.

Hi Kevin


Thank you for reporting this and thank you also for the detail in the report. That always helps us get much faster to a resolution. We've confirmed this and we'll take immediate action to fix it. Meanwhile as a work around you can add a text object in your device, select it and in the Object Info Palette in the ConnectCAD Linked Text group set it as linked text and choose the device field to link to.

I realise this isn't perfect because it doesn't automatically apply to all new devices but it does let you visualize your data.
