Forest SET refs Not updating automatically
« on: November 03, 2022, 02:37:31 AM »
Hi guys

I have a forest set and i put in there POINT helpers (in a layer).   I am using a forest object to distribute CHAIRS and when i use the FOREST SET as the source to distribute, it doesnt automatically update when i add more reference points to this layer?  I have to select the forest object itself and change 1 parameter and then it updates

Is there a way it can auto update as i duplicate reference points?

Hi!

Thanks for the question. At present, I'm afraid there are a few limitations with interactive updating when using references by layer in a forest set. For that reason, we added a rebuild button to Forest Lister so you can quickly update one or more Forest Objects without having to change settings or navigate to the Display rollout.



I hope that helps,
Paul

thanks for that.    no offense but it kind of defeats the purpose - id rather just select the reference points the original way - is this likely to be updated in the future?
