  1. Good news. Slow walls has been fixed in VW2024 SP2
  2. Hi Alana, I agree. Unified view is not as good as it was. This may happen when the layers (if your using layers) are different scales.
  3. How on earth did that change 🤪 In 30yrs, I have never changed that, and I'm not sure I even noticed those options. 😴 Thanks Mark
  4. Hi, Up until yesterday, my manually placed symbols had an insertion point where I set it. Something went wrong during the day because now the insertion point is at an alternate location. This only happens on one of two computers using the same stationary sheet. The black pic clearly has the insertion point offset from the coloured edited symbol (midpoint). How can I reset it for one computer only?
  5. This has been happening for quite a while. It's annoying.
  6. Additionally, this only seem to happen with 3D objects. 2D can be rotated and visually stay correct.
  7. VW2023 popup active button ("OK", "Cancel", etc.) was bordered by a blue rectangle. This was the highlight to the default option. VW2024's active button is grey while the others are "In your Face" white. Can this be reversed? "In your Face" white active button with the others greyed out.
  8. Can anyone else make this happen so I can add additional support to my bug report ? What the movie. I use alt-left mouse button to select. Then I use ctrl-left mouse button to drag and make a copy. With the selection I rotate 90° With the space bar held down, I pan. I can also make this happen while zooming in and out. Do you see the blue object change back to the horizontal view while panning ? It's rather annoying when trying to position one object alongside another. The blue object is imported from another CAD software, but I've not experienced this until VW2024. Untitled video - Made with Clipchamp.mp4
  9. The bug has been reported and I received notification that they have repeated it and will work on the fix. Hopefully, if I'm not going crazy, it will speed up VW2024 completely, because I'm feeling that I have to wait a lot for different processes to finish. But that's another story.
  10. Excellent Tui, Then I will report this as a bug. Ta.
  11. So, from all of your responses to my question of Mac's, it looks like your all using Mac's and the problem only occurs in Windows. I've also turned on "Account Settings/Signature/View Signatures" and now I can see you are all Mac users. I'll keep this post live until someone can test this problem on a Windows PC with VW2024 to prove the theory.
  12. Here's something interesting. I have been using my computer at work for the above posts. I also have my laptop for when I work from home. Both have the same delay issue. Exactly as explained previously. My work computer is Windows 10 and my laptop is Windows 11. Are you all using Mac's ?
  13. Interesting. I have opened the file that I posted, and I am still getting delays as per my video. I have created a new wall using all the defaults, and still get the delays. I may have to contact my local support to fix it then. If they come up with a solution, I will post it here for all other users with the problem. Thanks all.
  14. Wall types.vwx Please see attached.
  15. Not that I am aware of. We have used the same wall setup for 30yrs now. In 2022 or 2023 combined the round wall and straight wall into one tool with combined options. That's when the radius tool lost it when dimensioning the round wall. ( a different issue that I've been waiting to be fixed since August. ) 2024 is when the slowness appeared. All my hardware is the same for the last 2 or 3 yrs.
  16. I believe that I may have limited the method I used. The wall tool allows the user to click to start and then click the next point and then move to the next point and click, etc. ( as per left picture below ) The method I require for individual wall sections is click to start and then click to finish. Next wall click to start and click to finish. ( per right picture ) You are right @michaelk, there was not lag in the wall tool for 2023 ( as attached ). 2023 wall tool.mp4 Slow wall took.mp4
  17. Hi, Has anyone else noticed how slow the wall tool has been in 2024 ? In 2023 I use to be able to click (start), double click (finish) and then, because I have many many separated walls in my daily projects, click (start) again. In 2024, it's to click (start), wait 1 second, double click (finish). I'm not exaggerating the time here. I know that I can start a new wall without waiting for the previous one to appear, but that's very deceiving.
  18. Ahhh, then it's Chrome Edge seems to work. Thanks Pat.
  19. Hi, Has anyone else have the following problem ? With the new vw2024, I am finding that it's taking the focus away from everything else on the screen. What I mean is that if VW is open, I don't get my hidden taskbar pop up when I want it (without hitting the windows key), and I don't get email or Teams notification or Snipping pop up, or at least I don't see them pop up in front of VW like I did with previous versions.
  20. Since I raised this topic, I've had mostly success, but some anomalies. After fiddling a bit, this is my latest version which of course is specific to my process but may gleam some light on the problem. You must be on the layer of the crop polygons you are using to create the viewports. My line type is probably not available to you so you need to change that to your choice too. procedure Main; Label 1, 2; var Lyr, ViewportLyr, LineStyleName : string; i, j, DashedStyleNumber : integer; Pt : Array [1..500, 1..500] of real; hL, hV : handle; Loop : boolean; procedure Log_Selected (h : handle); var VT : integer; AR : real; hC : handle; begin hC := ConvertToPolygon (h, 0); DelObject (h); SetName (hC, 'Tmp'); i := i + 1; GetPolylineVertex (hC, 1, Pt[i, 1], Pt[i, 2], VT, AR); DelName ('Tmp'); SetDSelect (hC); end; procedure Create_Viewport; begin hV := PickObject (Pt[j, 1], Pt[j, 2]); if (hV <> Nil) then begin SetSelect (hV); DoMenuTextByName ('Create Viewport', 0); if (Loop = True) then begin ViewportLyr := GetLName (ActLayer); Loop := False; end; Layer (Lyr); end; end; begin DelName ('Tmp'); hL := ActLayer; Lyr := GetLName (hL); Loop := True; if (NumSObj (ActLayer) = 0) then Goto 1; if (YNDialog ('Every selection on active layer will be a bounding for a viewport. Continue?') = False) then Goto 2; DashedStyleNumber := -Name2Index('Dash Style-9'); { The bounding polygon will be a line style of choice } LineStyleName := GetDashLineTypeName (DashedStyleNumber); DSelectObj (((V=True) or (V=False)) & (LT <> LineStyleName)); if (NumSObj (ActLayer) = 0) then AlrtDialog ('Crop must be line type Dash Style-9'); i := 0; ForEachObject (Log_Selected, ((Sel = True) & (L = Lyr) & (LT = LineStyleName))); DSelectObj ((V=True) or (V=False)); For j := 1 to i do begin Create_Viewport; end; Layer (ViewportLyr); Goto 2; 1: { Error } AlrtDialog ('No bounding box selected, or bounding box is not "Dash Style-9".'); 2: { Abort }; end; run (Main);
  21. Hi all, Seems that Juan is MIA so can anyone else give me their opinion please?
  22. Thanks Juan, I just sent a PM & updated my signature.
  23. Hi, I am given IFC files from clients all the time by email. This one is 1 mb. When I export an IFC, eg. below, it is 416 mb and not nearly as complex. Any hints in getting the IFCs smaller?
