  1. Thank you, Jim. I went through a huge, lengthy thing with Kaspersky, and they have updated their 2012 Anti-virus so it no longer finds these false-positives (which they agreed were false). The 2012 is a free update, for anyone using Kaspersky 2011. Guess all our nagging with them worked!
  2. It's hard to see from your image, JHEarcht, but it looks like the same files that Kaspersky is picking up and deleting on my computer. Door, TrueType, General Notes, among about 30 others. Some* of them work again now that I have 'restored' them, but I can't use the door tool, nor change the door properties - awesome. What is this plug-in you're talking about?
  3. UPDATE: Kaspersky has been a right pain in the arse about this - friendly, but so many avenues that are trying to deal with it / assuming it's been taken care of. But they have the info, I guess the next release will work better. I keep trying to work-around the issue, but may ditch them, as it would be cheaper than my time wasted, and VW is SO glitchy now - DAYS spent on this! GGrrrrrr!!!!
  4. Ah, but I don't have 2012... Guess that does mean that it wasn't a trojan, though. Thanks for the update.
  5. Thanks Kevin - I had a feeling it was a Kaspersky issue with VW...it just felt like a strange place for a virus to target. BUT - according to the internet, the Trojan.Win32.Mediyes is a real virus - how can I be sure before allowing Kaspersky to ignore it?
  6. Yeesh! Those are exactly the same Trojans. It wasn't on my bosses computer until I opened a particular file - could it be in there - I used a symbol from a CAD symbol site, and some from Kohler. 2 fonts from Fonts101 last week. But computers are networked. Please let me know how things go? What a waste of time, energy & money.
  7. 2 days ago some of my plug-ins stopped working, and my Kaspersky anti-virus warned me of trojans, finding 18 in the plug-in folders. Now, I don't recall if the warning came before or after the plug-ins stopped working. So I loaded the files onto my bosses computer, he never uses VW. All was fine, then his Kaspersky anti-virus warned me of the same trojans! I'm afraid to do the scan and possibly screw up the VW on that computer - I'm terrified of losing all my symbols etc. I've removed VW from my PC and am about to re-install it. Guess now I've lost all my shortcuts, there goes hours of work! Any clue about these trojans? What's going on??? Thanks for any advice. VW2011 Windows 7
  8. Vincent C - I definitely get what you're saying. Now that I'm back at my desk and with all kinds of body issues, I really have to look at my whole set-up, and how I use my body. Thank for pointing that out. mk - That's a heck of a piece of machinery! Thanks! kbw
  9. I am back from medical leave now, and eager to open this discussion back up again (not sure if I should add to this thread or start a new one) - the way technology goes, I'm sure the suggestions need to be updated, so..... What's the best ergonomic mouse for VW??
  10. ok, I understand now that you install onto the COMPUTER, not into VW directly. It works. Any recommended fonts that work well with VW 2011, PDF conversion and prints nicely at 1/16, 1/8 & 1/4 scales would be appreciated. Doesn't have to be a hand-drawn style...
  11. VW 2011 comes with a huge list of fonts, but they don't show as samples, I don't have time to change text to every one to find one I like ... any recommendations? They don't have to be a hand-drawn style. They do need to translate into PDF well. Also, I have read here about a few downloadable ones, but I don't know how to do that...any advice there? Thanks!!!

  12. Thank you! I'll play with those two options - just setting a different Text Off value will let me drag the line nicely (had avoided it because my text looks awful as it is). Appreciate your help!
  13. When I have a small dimension and want to pull / move the dimension line, and the text is larger or same size as the line, the text moves (as though it is in the foreground, and the line is behind the text box). So I can't move small dimensions with out moving the text, then the line, then trying to move the text back to it's place. PLEASE HELP ME?!?!? It's driving me bonkers and wasting time! Thank you!

  14. Ken, may I ask how the Kensington works? ie: my most used action is to select an object, hold & drag it, while both rolling and pushing the middle button to zoom and pan around the drawing to drag the object to a new location. Can this be done with the Kensigton - I don't quite get how the ball works, and how you select, drag and pan or zoom ... I've never used a rollerball, and in my small town, 'trying before buying' isn't an option - so how is the ball for landing on grips and draging to resize etc.? Thanks!
