    Does any one have any experience with this plugin? Its a set of macros for VW to make things run smoother--however not really understanding how macros work, I can't active these commands. Anyone have an idea/been using this plugin?

    I've just been using it, and it is quite helpful. Well worth $35.

    I use the AutoPlot tools and have have found them to be WAY worth the $. They're huge time and effort-savers.

    Probably the best add on i've ever bought for any program. In order to make the macros work though you have to select the Autoplot workspace, which is pretty much the spotlight workspace with a few changes.

    Been using it for a while. It makes inputting channel and dimmer numbers a lot easier.

    Anhony -

    Please forgive a little correction. Though, initially, the quickest way to use the AutoPlot tools is by switching to the AutoPlot Workspace, you don't HAVE to use that Workspace. You can add them to ANY Workspace you wish and they'll work beautifully. I've been working that way for years...

    Really, i guess i need to learn more about how to use vectorworks itself to create workspaces. Anyways, i like the Autoplot workspace though so its the one i use all the time.

    Anthony -

    I highly recommend learning how to edit Workspaces - and about the many third-party tools and commands (Sam's, mine, others') you'll be able to plug in. Doing so will greatly expand your Vectorworks abilities.
