Plant tool - Group / Ungroup plants function - Loss of database fields





I noticed a problem with the plants tool and the use of VectorWorks internal databases.

Indeed, in my process I want to assign personal data to plant occurrences (for example zones, phases or other data).

It works quite well overall (sometimes the data disappears for no reason, you have to be careful to have regular backups).
You can easily replace a plant with another style of plant, and the custom data is well preserved.


But I have a data loss problem when I want to use the group / ungroup the plants function.


As much for the grouping of plants having different data fields, I can understand that VectorWorks cannot concatenate the data of the plants (it cannot know what is priority).


But for the grouping of plants with the same personalized data, it would be interesting to be able to keep the identical fields filled in.
And for the ungrouping of groups of plants, it would be good for the symbols resulting from a group with personalized data to find them once separated.


So I don't know if this could be a bug or a feature request (wishlist), so I'm posting my message in this section.


Thank you for your comments and suggestions if you have already had this scenario and found a solution.


Best regards.
