  1. And an easily-accessible button for ‘recalculate this worksheet’. Instead of clicking through menus.
  2. @rohantheboat agree with all of your above points and posts. There’s no hiding that orbiting in VW is cumbersome and unintuitive. I myself have a 3D connection and have for many used the above-mentioned tricks to make orbit behave normally (eg ‘select the object to orbit around’). Your point is that, there’s already a better way that the logic of orbiting can work with, which is already in existence out there (sketchup), where you don’t need to define your centre of orbit for a smooth orbiting experience, it somehow just works! it would be great if such orbiting algorithms can appear in Vectorworks, so we don’t have the pain of making the correct selection (ie ‘right click’ -‘force select’) before orbiting. It’s too many steps as a navigation process while modelling. I may just add one other Orbiting suggestion while we are at it - we should be customise/able to set as default ‘orbiting from TOP/plan activates OpenGL’. I can’t ever see a situation when I’m orbiting from Tap/Plan that I’d need to see the model in wireframe. So, it is just a simple ‘certainty’ in my workflow that I have to additionally and manually switch to OpenGL everytime I orbit firm Top/Plan. It seems redundant as a workflow process.
  3. @jeff prince what issues did you find with your MacBook Pro and twinmotion? @Hans-Olav I am about to buy a few Vega 64 cards (8GB) for our 2010 Mac pros. Can you share your experience with twinmotion using the vega cards?
  4. @Frank Brault I sincerely hope you can help with the attaching image to record issue. As with the horizontal listing issue, I feel this is too important issue to be buried here with the image issue, so I will make a seperate Wishlist posting.
  5. It would be great to have 'overall' included in the way we set texture of a class. Like enclosed. I often find myself clicking the same texture 6 times unnecessarily. I
  6. Hi Frank, we are aware of the =IMAGE function, but the real-life usage that it is appropriate for is very limited, and we have largely removed that from our worksheets. We really need the ability to attach multiple images to a record. None of these workarounds you are suggesting really resolves the issue I'm trying to raise. If you see the need for it, can you please put through a feature request for it? --------------------------------- In regards to the 'endless list' must go downwards and not sideways, does not really add-up. This is the reason: when we have a really list, it will list downwards. Currently there is no way to make the list ‘break’ and fill multiple A3 pages. so regardless of whether the endless list lists downwards or lists sideways, you still need to layout the continuous list properly on a piece of paper for all the information to the printable. So, the said reason to not have a horizontal list is not really valid. Moreover, door and window schedule should be as below- sideway listed with a large image. It is simply not feasible with vertical listing.
  7. Wow I'm ecstatic! Thanks @Tom Klaber for starting this post and making us aware of Smartpaste. Thanks @GioPet for the great product and thanks @Matt Panzer for helping us follow up!
  8. HI @Frank Brault thank you for your attention to this matter. Do you think image attachment to Records is something that can be implemented? I would love to see this on Vectorworks. On a separate worksheet issue, while I have your attention: HORIZONTAL WORKSHEETS In scheduling for design, some worksheets are much better with a horizontal listing What I mean is a list that lists from left to right, instead of top to bottom, which is the only possible way now. This is useful for listing architectural items such as doors in a door schedule. Could this be possible in the future?
  9. By way of a quick by update, @Tolu has been working with me in the background on this issue, they are aware of it and now working on solutions
  10. Hey just letting you guys know, @Tolu have been working with me in the background on this issue, they are aware of it and now working on solutions
  11. We too have experienced this issue in 2019. Yet to test it in version 2020
  12. Hi @Frank Brault that’s for the suggestion, but would ‘worksheets’ be able to pull the referenced URL images as actual images, and display them inside the ‘worksheet’? Also, can the image links be POSIX file links instead of URL links? The issue here is about communication on paper. Having a URL printed a sheet of drawing means nothing to my contractor, who’s holding that printed drawing on site. He’s not going to waste time to type that URL back onto his mobile device character-by-character. My contractors will need a to see a page with all the images I want to communicate to him, at a glance.
  13. @Nikolay Zhelyazkov if possible, can you also make the Titleblock Manager PIO to check for permission conflicts (Project Share) before any operations, instead of at the very end of operations. Because of the slowness of the operations, we often will do the step-by-step process of adding 'issues', which takes up to 15 minutes. If, only at the very end after clicking 'ok', that the PIO checks for permission, then we would have wasted 15 minute. This happens to us quite often. And it happened again tonight.
