    Screen Refresh / Lag time in 2018

    Hi, Yes changing the garphics preference does make it slightly better, but the lag is still bad enough.

    Screen Refresh / Lag time in 2018

    I am still having this problem of lagging intermittedly. Especially when moving wall objects and selecting them. Anybody else with the same problem???? I have gone through a round of support but it did not reslove anything... logging info sent off... no answer. Hmm I am considering re-installing my 2014 version.... I have aW530 lenovo 16bg quaddro k2000m workhorse and only on 2018 encountered anything that would doubdt its power. I am sorry it might be 5 years old, but this computer should not struggle with an updated cad program.... it must be the soft ware? Or am i missing something obvious here? I should mentio i have just re-installe downdows 10 from scratch and vectorworks was the first thing i installed.... Very frustrating. can't work like this!

    Font displaying but not printing

    Finally found a font that looks a lot like my own hand draughting font. It is Draft Punk Ltd, purchased from MyFonts.com. It displays perfectly fine but does not print at all; it is just missing. Not on any of the three printers that i tried does it work. Nor through Adobe PDF or a freeware pdf generator, nor does printing through rastrising output (SLOW) work; all these seem to get stuck in some never-ending loop. Other software, like CS6 Design series (illustrator and Photoshop) or Libreoffice all display and print the font fine in any shape of form. It appears to be solely VW that has an issue here, or is there something wrong with this font? Anybody else had any problems related to specific fonts?

    Font displaying but not printing

    The owner of the font has come back to me and suggested un-installing both the OTF and TTF versions of the font (I had installed both) and re-installing ONLY the TTF. This has worked for me. I guess the OTF font throws the other one off somehow..? Thank you for your prompt reply.
  5. To successfully extrude certain 2d shapes i have sometimes converted them into polygones, which is fine visually. But it does turn curves into lots of tiny lines. This is a problem as after using the model to design and visualise for my purposes i then make a 2d flat version of all the shapes and send it off to a CNC router to cut them out. And this machine needs the curves to be curves with the least amount of points to do the best job. SO, the question is how can i make curves out of polygones again? Adobe illustrator offers a function called simplify which simplifies the curves back into just a minimum of points. Does such a function exist in vectorworks? Or which way would you have to go?
