Common Tasks

Installing Scripts

When, for the first time, you create a plug-in, Vectorworks puts all of its content in user plug-in path and each time Vectorworks runs it recursiveley load all the Plug-Ins in that path (Also looking for the short-cuts). When you designed and implemented your plug-in in either of the scripting languages, you may want to use it on different machines or VW instances. Vectorworks Plug-in manager allows users to install packages containing scripts and other content. For basic installation it just simply copy provided plug-in (which should be as a zip file) into the user plug-in path. Also if a installation script is provided it will run that script as well. Please follow below links for more explanations and examples.
