    How do you work? Workspace Configurations

    My own is very similar, I swap the Attributes and the toolsets. I keep the RM at the top and either window shade or use Common-R to reveal and hide.

    Note this is a several day old back up file....it isn't the current one. What is it that could have corrupted the new file? I just need to know to avoid making the same mistake.... Also - Is corruption permanent?

    why did a backup version of the file work? Crossing my fingers, to make it keep working this way...
  5. Sure enough! When I am in the design layer - and a component is turned off - I simply do not see it - I mistakenly thought that is the way it worked in VPs too. This is a fine workaround for now. Thank you for your help!!!

    Just checked the 1 monitor option - unfortunately i still get the same result....

    Nothing official yet, apologies. I would expect around the end of November if schedules proceed as they have in prior years.

    I'll try the 1 monitor route. Let's see what happens. Is there an ETA on SP2?

    Everything seems in order as you said, thanks for letting me confirm. You MIGHT see an improvement in behavior by disconnecting and then rebooting one of the machines with a single monitor only as a stopgap workaround, but its very likely this issue is one of the items being corrected for SP2.

    No problem. I think the files just attached. Also something to note : scanline drawings work. Its just theres no way to modify curtainwalls or any objects in 3d other than plan. Note 2 - All objects when opening the file - show up. Then disappear. DxDiag_Win7.txt DxDiag_Win10.txt

    Would you please attach the resulting txt file from hitting "Save All Information"? it tells me a LOT more than the main screen does.

    This is the Win 10 Machine. Yes - Both machines have SP1 installed. Will update config for win 7 machine shortly.

    Also, this is 2019 SP1, correct?

    Ok, just confirmed, its not an OS problem / driver, it's a VW problem. A win 7 machine is exhibiting the same symptoms.
  15. Jim Wilson

    We definitely have outstanding issues with graphics glitches and refreshes not happening as expected regardless of the OS. If you can, reply back with this from both machines especially if they behave differently:
  16. Can you send me a simple file with a few of the walls your describing? As long as the class the wall is in is tuned on, it should show as it did in 2018 if the component classes are off.

    Okay, just restarted discovered a new thing.... When i pan / rotate in one direction - this shows up: Then I rotate in a different Direction and I get this again - Maybe this is a windows 10 thing? I will try to look at the model on a VW 2019 copy on a Win 7 machine. Be back soon.
  18. Hey all! There has been a lot of UI talk both publicly and privately here. To that end, I realized this is something I never focused much on: How do you have your workspace arranged? Below is how i like to set things up on a 4K screen, I sacrifice the Vis palette and swap the Resource Manager from its vertical configuration to a larger but auto-collapsed mode if I'm working on 1080p. (Often for training and presentations) At work and at home I often use multiple monitors, but I normally keep Vectorworks confined to the main display. At most I will pop a multiview pane or the Resource Manager on its own to a secondary display. How do you arrange things? Why do you like it that way? What don't you like about any limits you have to how things can be configured?

    display screen gets messed up

    Yes! It's working fine now. Thanks a ton for your incredibly quick response!

    No, I've tried all 3 settings, I've also tried turning off GDI+Imaging and Anti-Aliasing and in 3d lowered one tick from detailed to responsive in 3d rotation. The thing is, it briefly appears, and then dissappears again. I can't figure out why. There were a few experiments i've done where the upper stories work when i enable the layer, but the lower story does not for some reason. This is really frustrating. I have a deadline by friday ūüėĎ Maybe a restart will help. Be back shortly.

    display screen gets messed up

    It looks like your laptop is using your integrated Intel card rather than the appropriate dedicated GPU. We don't have an article for AMD graphics since the user interface changes card to card, but these are the general steps: 1. Open the AMD "Control Center" (Might be called Catalyst, or Crimson, or Radeon Settings) 2. Select "Manage 3D Settings" under 3D Settings. 3. Click on the "Program Settings" tab and select the program you want to choose a graphics card for from the drop down list. 4. Now select "preferred graphics processor" in the drop down list. (You can see what the automatic option is listed as global setting) If you want to use the dedicated graphics card, select High-performance AMD processor. If you can't seem to find any settings like that, HP may have steps for doing so for your particular model.

    Custom title block

    I had created a custom title block on the 2017 version. I was able to export it to work in the 2018 version. I can't remember how that was done now though. It imported fine into 2019, but I need to change the logo and can't get it to find it again. I don't want to recreate it since all of the title blocks are for architects and not us show people. So my question is, how do I import or save my current title block to work in 2019? Thanks, Tom

    I have the same issue as Bryony. Here is my DxDiag file DxDiag.txt
  25. Thanks, Matt, I can not turn them off or hide them as then I will not see the wall at all. We need the wall to be colored or hatched per our key to distinguish rated walls, new walls, and existing walls. Unfortunately, the components of these walls are shared, meaning I can not override the as there is no way to do that so they show up white in existing, gray in a new interior, and hatched in rated. We are in a real pickle. I think the only option is to set our symbols so that the low detail is actually high detail and just take the hit in the 1/4" plans.

    Do you see the same issue if you switch Navigation Graphics to one of the lower two options? Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > Display
  27. Thanks! The DPI setting on the Export PDF dialog does appear to help fix the issue. Although I have to set it about 1200 DPI before all the circles look correct which seems excessively high. I guess the next question is how do I set the DPI with the Publish command? This is how I normally export PDFs since my drawings almost always have multiple pages. I can't find anywhere to set the DPI when using Publish, and it doesn't appear to use the DPI of the Sheet Layer.
