  • Finding Lost Objects

    PVA - Admin

    When working in Vectorworks, you may sometimes think an item has disappeared or been deleted. Before you start over, here is a method of finding/revealing "lost"objects.

    Occasionally, when changing the scale, zooming, or changing render modes, an item (or even your entire project) may seem to have vanished. Most likely, the view has simply been refocused to a blank area of the file. By resetting the drawing window around all visible objects in the file, the objects can be "found" again.


    To fit thedrawing window around all visible objects in the drawing:

    1. Ensure that the current layer contains the object(s) to view, and that no objects are selected.

    2. Select View > Zoom > Fit to Objects.

    (Note: You may also choose this option from the View Bar in the lower left corner of the document window)


    Vectorworks zooms in or out so that all the objects in the drawing display in the drawing area.
