  2. Is there the ability to make a VW 2019 file ALL CAPS? Including databases and text styles.

    So far my workaround has been to manually type in CAPS, but the database header has got me stumped.


    I must be missing something. Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    The section seems to be displaying cuts of elements it should not.  When I go into Edit Section In Place - those objects are not there - they only show up in the section viewport.  Most of them appear to be components of groups of symbols with different classes than their container object - as if the section disregards container objects and breaks everything down when gauging if to display or not.  

    I have been able to eliminate most of them, but there are these few persistent objects and I can not find the source geometry that is causing them.  


    Is anybody else experiencing this? 

    Totally experiencing this issue.


    It is a brutal bug, working on an apartment building and furniture showing up everywhere it shouldn't. 

    I'm guessing its related to there new low, med, high feature.  When a class is off it should never show up.


    My current workaround is to use the Detail Level low and turn off symbols that are inside of unit plan symbols.

    I hope VW's fixes this soon.

  4. I believe this should be considered a bug, or at min. not desirable behaviour.

    Page based symbols do not display correctly when Navigation Graphics is set to Best Compatibility. 

    This may be is a result of my graphics card, but certain things should always show.


    - Create a page based symbol

    - when inserted into a section viewport it scales down based on the scale of the viewport it seems.

    - when a crop is applied to a viewport the symbol increases in size?


    If you print a PDF it displays correctly.

  5. Bug Alert,

    This works with simple object for example draw a rectangle and make it a symbol, the same behaviour will persist.


    With a hybrid symbol, open "multiple views panes".

    Edit the 2D component of the symbol, the 2D objects disappear.


    Also happens when editing a symbol containing symbols, if a symbol is 2D only it will disappear when entering the root symbol with multiple views on.

    See Screen recording.


    Very frustrating behaviour!!
