    Aligning Textures in Texture Beds

    Nearly 8 years later and Vectorworks still haven't provided a solution to this. The paving texture has chosen to render at about 30° to where it should be, so there isn't even a way to rotate the texture image as a workaround.

    fence railing tool upgrade

    Also so that 'top' rail can be below the top of the pales (frame verticals) e.g. like a picket fence

    Vertical Bar Railing

    Thanks very much for that, looks like a good workaround I do think Nemetschek need to up their game on this one, we have been using the fence/railing tool because it is quick to use and very handy for giving an accurate layout, including post positions, in 2D whilst allowing us to share IFC models with other consultants on BIM projects. To have a tool that can't produce a normal railing type like the above without lots of workarounds is really poor and I would want it to be able to follow site contours using send to surface or similar.

    Vertical Bar Railing

    How does the railing/fencing tool create a standard vertical bar railing like this one?

    Railing/Fence Tool

    More for the fence wishlist: Top rail, bottom rail and intermedate rails all individually contolled please! Ability to offset the 'frame bars' (this is a really poor and misleading name) from the rails like a real fence As others have posted, ability to follow slope either by stepping or sloping

    VW 2019 Crash when attempting to "Replace" Symbol?

    I have a similar issue sp2 on vw2019, VW will go into a spin when a SINGLE INSTANCE of a symbol is selected, or if I place a symbol. If I select 2 or more symbols there is no issue. Spinning beachball for 2-3 minutes then works it out, but it is extremely frustrating.

    Centre/center points

    Thanks! That will teach me to have something switched on that I don't understand. That avatar looks good....

    Centre/center points

    VW 2018 is very reluctant to pick up center/centre points. I have to zoom right in to pick up a top, bottom, left or right center and it's really slowing me up. Is anyone else having this issue? It's all set to pick these up in the snapping palette and preferences and didn't have problems in previous versions.

    Object Info Palette does not work properly in VW2018 SP2

    Also having problems with the OIP since installing 2018. Particular issue with the data tab which refuses to display which records are attached to the selected object. When this happens I cannot move the bar between the formats and the input section. Undocking the OIP seems to allow the display to act normally, but I want to have it docked.

    New Bridge Line Tool

    Have this issue in a different scenario, 2D symbols from VW 2016 containing arcs when imported keep flipping over. Assume when the bug fix is done it will address this? In the meantime the 179.9° trick does seem to resolve it for my cricket outfields
  11. As an addendum it would be good if the docked palettes could stay at the width and proportion that I left them. Laura
  12. The resource browser works best widened out so would be helpful if it could be docked across the bottom of the other palettes that I have in two columns, as if they were 'merged' in a spreadsheet. At the moment I have it undocked as a workaround.
  13. +1 As above, real sites slope in all directions
  14. We really need to have hardscape objects with component buildup that fit to undulating contours - something like a texture bed with 3D projection beneath. Even better if the 3D component acts as a site modifier allowing true cut and fill to be calculated. I've just been watching Design Software Solutions' webinar and I can see that hardscape works fine if you have a very simple and straightforwardly sloped area to deal with. Unfortunately that's rarely the case in real life, for instance usually if fitting to existing levels at the edge of a site or an existing building the slopes are going to be in many different directions and frequently undulating. Hardscapes such as tarmac and block paving do not have to slope to even gradients and frequently don't. I'm being asked by clients whether I can provide BIM information on landscape buildups for some of my projects now and am having to tell them that I can only give them existing and proposed site models.
