• Are you looking for a coupon code to buy my software? You can get one from lots of 3rd party sites but they won't work. My software never goes on sale and has never been discounted. The only coupon codes that are given is when I give a club presentation and I offer a discount to the attendees. Other than that, everyone pays the same price.

WTP Cutting Summary not showing species

Hi , I have been mucking around with WTP trying to improve my learnings with it, and every time I paint some segments and check the summary view, it alwas shows the base as the species I chose, but the rings are always the default, e.g. I paint alternate rows Mahogany and Ash and the summary shows all rings as Mahogany. Well this morning I discovered that if I paint the rows using the Species select tool on the left in the row details box, I get the summary view the way it should be Woohoo!!! I then export to Excel as usual and I don't have to manually change them as I have been doing. Anyway, I thought I would share it, as I can't be the only perosn getting it wrong....or maybe I am :)
 
Hi Dave.
It would be helpful if you would attach your wtp file for us to look at.

The default species column is what you have chosen as default. It can be changed by selecting the disk or ring and changing the species in the row detail window.

In WTP when you paint a segment it will be listed on the right hand side of the summary sheet in columns labels S1, S2, S etc.
What S1, S2 is listed on the bottom of the summary table.
Doing this from memory but I believe while you can paint any number of species the summary table is limited to 5 species.

Attached is an example wtp file I made to show how the species are shown in the summary

Hi Lloyd, Thanks for replying. I did not realise that there were extra rows showing the different species S1, S2 etc as my view was set to 150% :)
I thought the default species column would show the woods needing to be cut (in my case Ash and Mahogony) If is select the row and change the species I can get it to show in the species column but not if I paint them, however the painted segments show in the S1 S2 column... learnt something else today thanks. Not an issue for me anymore and thanks again for making an awesome piece of software and I am just staring to realise how powerful a tool it is. All the best, Dave
Lighthouse test is the file I had the issue with and Lighthouse 2 is the one I am using and works for me.

Glad it is not an issue anymore for you.
Thanks for the wtp files.
