Workgroup Referencing - Symbol - PIO problem

Recommended Posts

I have a symbol (A) of a piece of a building, a bay. It contains window

symbols (B and C) each based on the window PIO. When a layer containing

copies of Symbol A is referenced into another file, the positions of the

individual window symbols B and C within the A symbol are altered...they are

strewn about the plan.

I can only manipulate the symbol in the original file...and there all is

well. Thoughts?

Carl,

most WGR alignment errors are caused by different origins between the two files, something supposedly fixed in VW9. Because symbols are involved there may be issues of where the origin was located at the time the symbol was created.

Thanks for the thoughts. I'll check into that.

In case your interested: a respondent from the VW discussion group suggested changing the nested symbols to groups and checking orientations in 3DEdit.
