Landmark_SIG_014 Special Interest Group November 2012

In this meeting we continued our series on getting started with Vectorworks Landmark. An important part of creating a landscape plan is creating plants. In Vectorworks 2013, the plant preferences have been changed. There are now two dialogue boxes that control plant settings. The new settings with the two dialogue boxes allows for more flexible plant placement.
