    Count truss objects

    You are welcome. I figured the short version answer would be enough for you. 😉

    Count truss objects

    Thanks. I had the right word but wrong syntax...

    Disappearing symbols geometry in HSVP (after SP4 update)

    Matt, I've had issues with extrudes made from polylines not displaying correctly in section. When I converted the resulting extrude to a generic solid, the issue was resolved. Not sure if its related or not. There is a bug submission with an accompanying file that I submitted under my name if its helpful. Kevin
  5. Latest service pack yes@klinzey . Where do I "send to tech support", please?

    Count truss objects

    =Count
  7. Bit of a back to basics question, but are you able to add class overrides to viewports and have them apply to 3d objects? I've clicked around a bit, and I would like to have a hatch overlaid on my 3d objects, but while I've got an over-ride set up it doesn't seem to show in the viewport. Also, note that the fourth coloumn doesn't show an override icon... I don't know if that might be the problem?

    Issue with Import Images

    THAT is what is happening. Importing as a Bitmap gives me what I am looking for (tracing sketches and research). Thank you for clarifying this process. Kindest regards, Brian

    Issue with Import Images

    @briland23 and in case anyone else above is still running into this: Can you please confirm this setting? If this drop down is set to IMAGE RESOURCE, the import will occur, but it will appear nothing happened because the import is simply making an image fill resource in your resource manager. Can you please confirm this setting is set to BITMAP?

    Issue with Import Images

    Hello, I am having a similar issue on 2019. There is absolutely no effective image import after going through the prompts. I am on a Mac 10.13.6 on a Mac Pro 2013 running Vectorworks Spotlight 2019 with service pack 4. I also feel like this functionality disappeared all of a sudden. I have restarted the machine. I am not importing I have tried PNG and JPG options and I get the same result. I am not importing large file sizes (most are under 1mb). There is no error message. There is no image import. I am covering by converting image files to pdf, and then importing the pdfs. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Brian

    spacers on truss corner block

    @rajaikhalil Please send me your file if you are able and I can take a look. I set up almost all of the truss in the shipped content libraries so I should be able to help you. Without seeing exactly what your new custom symbol looks like it is hard for me to tell you how to setup the custom corner.
  12. Can we please get the ability to save build lists in the spotlight fixture summary feature? Thank you.

    Count truss objects

    I've got a Worksheet listing instances of a given PIO, summarized by a selected field. What is the syntax for displaying the count for each summary?
  15. @A.D.K. Ah, you are correct! If I adjust that color, it does use that color when adjusting the layer scales! I will put together a submit here and post the reference number shortly. Figuring out how to get it to this point will still probably be important, but we at least have enough information for a submit. Now that we know it is tied to that color setting, it may be easy to fix/figure out in the background. EDIT: Here is the reference number for the submit on the ghosting ( VB-163003 ).
  16. @ASagatovVW I didn't have that blue applied to anything as an attribute, but attached is a screenshot of my Interactive Appearance Settings. It looks suspiciously like the blue associated with "Object Highlighting - Action".

    spacers on truss corner block

    hi , im trying to add the spacer to the universal corner block , the auto insert tool will just snap one to the middle of the truss , and not 4 spacers on each side. by duplicating the symbol then editing 2d and 3d component, i created my own symbol for a corner block with spacers. Im just failing to fix the the auto insertion parameters as the 6 mentioned points are very difficult to understand, does anyone have an idea about this?
  18. @A.D.K. Further update: It seems that I can replicate the blue boxes / ghosting issue in your provided test file by changing layer scales; however, I'm still not replicating this in a new document from scratch. Submitting your test file will at least get the ball rolling here, but finding out how to make this occur in a new document will likely be key for finding the exact cause/fix. In your example file, I am seeing a blue highlighting, but I don't see blue applied to anything. Did you previously have blue applied to one of the class attributes that the callout may have been originally placed in?

    Floor Command In Section VP caused VW to crash

    @BohI tried it and it did not crash? Here's my file if you want to see what I did. I used both the "Create Section Viewport" command and the Clip Cube as well to create the sections. I also use the floor tool for countertops as it is a "hybrid" as opposed to using an extruded element. Floor object test.vwx

    Disappearing symbols geometry in HSVP (after SP4 update)

    Just a quick update on this for anyone else wondering about this: I believe I tracked down what the problem is. Well, the actual problem seems to be a few interrelated bugs that make it a very hard problem to troubleshoot. The root of the issue is that polylines are not being dealt with properly in sections causing them to not display. Try these steps: NOTE: Before doing this, you may want to import any symbols you do this to into an empty file and save it, so you have the originals. Edit the 2D component of a symbol with the issue. Use the Select Similar (magic wand) tool to select by object type and click on a polyline Use the Convert to Polygon command. Exit the symbol. Now the symbol should display.
  21. @Boh Possibly. If we start going down that road, it might actually relate to the separate problem I outlined here. I was able to recreate the ghosting pretty consistently by scaling the layer in that file.

    Unlock node (new) not working

    There are tables in the appendix of the dev wiki that cover most selector values. http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Function_Reference_Appendix
  23. Is it possible to 'bind' a Vectorworks drawing with xrefs on export, so that all the xrefs are absorbed into one single drawing file - while also retaining a Vectorworks format rather than exporting to DWG? I know when you export to DWG, the option exists to 'Export Design Layer Viewports as separate files', which provides the option of this function in the dwg export. In this instance, the consultant I want to send my files to also uses Vectorworks, so I don't need a DWG export - I just want to 'Save As' or export a Vectorworks file as a copy essentially, but in a bound version with all the xrefs included. As a workaround, I can delete my references and absorb the content - but without first saving a copy of my file, this affects my original referenced file, which I want to keep set up in it's current state. I just want to essentially 'package' the information as an export so it can be easily transferred to someone else also using VW. Is there an easy way to do this that I'm missing?
  24. Anyone else found that when a Floor object is in a Section VP then VW will crash when you try and update the Viewport? Is this a know bug? Ive just updated to the latest service pack of VW 2019. I hardly use the floor tool, tend to use slabs, but saw in one of @Jonathan Pickup ‘s recent webinars him use it as a quick hybrid 3D object for benches and thought that’s a great idea!
  25. Let me know what you think.
  26. Hi - I have a 2019 Licence for sale - £2250 (no VAT) This is for stand alone no VSS It has service select currently making it ready for 2020 when it arrives but this can be removed. If you want that too its an extra £500 running till June 2020.
