Question

I am so sorry that I have no idea what I'm doing with these chairs, but I thank you all for your patience and help. 

 

This time, I pretty much just need to number my seats, however, the seating tool was not at all doing what I needed it to be doing so I switched over to just using an array and editing from there. However, now it seems that you can't number them or that I can't convert the section I made into a section Vectorworks likes. So basically, from here, I'm not sure if I need to scrap the array and go back to fighting with the seating tool or if there's a few crucial steps I'm missing. Thanks again!

Hi @AmandaM22 So I used to into this alot and for me the simplest solution has been to create a record format SEATING, with two fields: 

• Chair Number

• Remarks

Then I place a text item in an appropriate position on the 2D chair element inside the chair symbol

This allows me to have an easily fillable field. either from the Data Tab of the OIP, or my FAVE, using Savvy Sequencer, a plugin of great power and flexibility for numbering anything.

I have attached a small VWX 2020 drawing with 2 different chairs & record formats. in it, both show chair numbers, albeit slightly differently…

@mjm It worked! Thank you so much! 

@AmandaM22 Great news indeed. Such good feelz when it does what you hope and expect it to do.

Which "it" did you end up deploying - the simpler or the more complex?

 @mjm I went with the simpler one for now. I'm probably going to change that later since just about everything else I'm doing is in 3D, but for what I need it for right now, the simpler one was faster and easier.
