Re: Randomization of trees

Hi Thomas, you have to select all the trees and clear the Manual Style property. The Manual Style is the one used while drawing the forest and will always overrule the Rule Style. That's why you don't see the desired effect, even if the Rule Style is correctly applied by running your rule.

Thanks!

 

That solved my problem, but i still dont quite understand why I can`t find the name of the spesific rulestyle when going into the properties palette and browsing rule styles.

 

Should`nt I be able to find my style "3_trees_style" by browsing the properties palette? And If I have several tree styles, how does the program know which of the rules to use when i cannot define or locate the Rule Style by name in the propertis palette?

Hi Thomas, it works a little bit different. What you see in the properties is the "Rule Style", not the "Style Rule". I.e. it is just the style that was assigned to the feature by running the rule. The feature itself doesn't know anything about which rule it has its style from.

Hello,

 

With expression manager you can do more dynamic styling solutions. So here is another possible solution:

 

random trees

 

Good luck.

Unfortunately this was not the solution for me. As far as I can se, I have the same issue as Thomas, but when I clear the manual style in properties, nothing happens. I commit and refresh my style rule again and manual style is applied again. 

 

Has anyone got some pointers?

When you cleared the manual style in the properties, did you make your changes persistend by pressing the 'Update' button at the top?

Did not see that one there - Thank you!

 

BUT - it doesn't seem to work when the forest area is defined from a shp file?
