  1. Hello there, I am a new VW user with much more AutoCAD experience. In my previous office we organized our job files in this format: plan1 plan2 ie1 ie2 ee roofplan then each drawing as a separate file: A1, A2, A3, etc. So the A sheets referenced the interior elevations which referenced the plans. These were all just dumb 2d line drawings, With VW it seems like you would want less drawing files so that you can still use the batch plot feature. Also, because we are drawing in 3d, that seems to complicate things. Furthermore, we would like different people in the office to be working on different parts of a project..... Any suggestions on how to organize a multi-story residential project in a relatively small office? Should each floor be a separate file? Should one file be the "print" file that references all of the floor files (with plans, sections, elevations, etc)? Thanks for the help and the suggestions!!
  2. Hello there, I have a problem with duplicate doors showing up in my schedule. Attached is a screen shot. I have selected each one and am SURE that there are not two doors on top of each other in the drawing or two doors in different Design Layers. After reading through some posts, I now know about the SUM feature and about how you can only use SUM three times and how to get around it. I can use this to help alleviate this problem (as a temporary fix), but then I have another problem when I mistakenly number a different door with the same number - they each get "summed" into one door on the schedule. How do I actually solve the initial problem itself? Does anyone else have this problem? Is this just a bug with VectorWorks that we must work around? We are working on a few files that both seem to do it. On another file there are actually five copies of each door! Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
