  1. sorry for the delay,

    VP in annotation mode placed on a worksheet. My workaround has been to zoom by using "C" [window zoom method] and stay at that level until I exit the VP annotation.

    If it does disappear, then I have to either "undo" until Im out of anno mode or restart the program. This is almost feels like the programmers had fun with a glitch and put a "done" button that does nothing but confuse and befuddle.

  2. As shown in image below, Im having a similar issue it seems. these are all nurbs circles that are extruded along path. All are being cut in section [the one to the far left is the only one cut straight on. As it shows the geometries are both : being simplified to polygons, and are being deformed into what can only be described as cloud like formations.

    I also created the original geometry in 2008 and then went back and redrew the nurbs circles with 2009 [for problems with severe faceted simplification]


    any thoughts?

  3. have patience > this may be a noob question, but do I have to have "renderworks" to apply textures to 3d elements even just to see in opengl render mode?

    It seems like this feature set is pretty basic even for a program like sketchup and can't figure out why this is tethered to a rather expensive package [for what it does] like renderworks.

    PS I have more than enough experience with long list of 3d apps... but, again, am a VW noob [please correct if wrong]


  4. Having a problem where the class containing all floors on a layer are appearing in front of the class containing all walls on the same layer. I have tried the "send to back" command for the floors, but as soon as I switch layers, vp's, sheets... and then come back, the floors are back to the front. This is really frustrating in the sheet layer that I've designated as the "floor plans" where I have settled for just turning off the floors class to print. [using anno's to hide objects behind]

    Also, I tried using the "respect design layer viewport overrides" option for the sheets after sending the floors class to the back, but to no success.

    Is it simply a class hierarchy issue or a "glitch" in the software that does not respect object viewing order according to height.

    any help is greatly appreciated.
