  1. thanks, marissa, i'll give it a try 🙂 rob
  2. this is the v2019, and the additionally installed module is python 3.7.2, apart from the one from vectorworks, as you and nicolas point out. i have even extended the path to the python 3.7 location, but to no avail. so it may lay on the internal mo library? thanks. rob edit: the current $path variable
  3. well, the /usr/bin contents doesn't list python 3.3, though. should i change any path to the right version?
  4. hi, although python 3.3 is installed on my machine and the nominatim with geolocator works (first screenshot from the terminal), vectorworks seems to not recognise it - it's the sun path diagram mo. is anything missing here - it's the polish version of vectorworks? thx for any clue, rob

    How to make a custom Data Tag

    thanks, kostadin 🙂 actually i haven't seen the hidden texts at all, even the selection didn't work. update: ok, the texts have been found 🙂 @olaf the text field is for displaying the record data in the tag body. rob.

    How to make a custom Data Tag

    not quite, just for the listed items in the data tag styles library... i think the data tags have something that identifies the objects they can be attached to, but i cannot figure out what. in my case i used the callout data tag to make it a data tag for a 2d symbol for slab breaks (for wall breaks i use the us window as a simple opening, and window data from the object). the break symbol has a record attached with the description, and the two main dimensions. the data tag doesn't recognise the object although the record with all fields has been assigned to the data tag text field. btw, you can attach all data for one field with a few rows... no clue if there's a way to proceed... rob

    ifc model size

    sorry for reviving. as solibri ifc optimiser starts to be a recognisable tool here in poland, is the previous opinion still valid, or has the sio performance with vectorworks (and probably not only) been improved in the meantime? thanks.

    VW 2018 Project sharing

    ok, i've installed and logged in. now i want to choose my local folder for project sharing (which is in my user directory on the main drive of the computer) and select it for constant backup. what is wrong with it?

    VW 2018 Project sharing

    hi tolu, thanks for looking at it. no, just dropping files onto our google drive in the web browser. i've set up my private cloud at home for this functionality, but now i have to do it for the company before i buy an additional nas drive 🙂 so the next step would be to install the google b&s client, but do i have to do anything on the server side? have fun, rob

    @anton5 i gather you answer to my #1, thanks for this. i mean a vectorworks project that has been moved from the world coordinates via replacing them with the user coordinates. sometimes the world coordinates are not retrievable anymore, we don't have a cache (like the one in revit) to store the world coordinates for the future exports. rob

    mac os mojave beta

    lacking apple support for opengl _is_ an issue for macintosh machines, and a big one. and, regardless of opengl presence in mac os, it really matters if vw still keeps opengl for the future releases or not. the sooner maxon introduces metal for cinerender, the better.

    mac os mojave beta

    if it's an opengl issue, then maxon will have to switch to metal for cinerender, too. because there comes archicad as well... i only hope that mojave will improve for this issue, because for the new computers it'd mean to go back to the previous os versions.
