  1. Awesome, this is exactly what I needed. Thank You!
  2. I installed VW2020, and it asked me to choose whether I wanted to Paste In Place in the active or another plane, and I accidentally chose the other plane, when I really want to paste exactly in place. Is there a way to reverse this? Thanks!
  3. It is insane, I still cannot get it to work for me.
  4. Was this ever implemented? Would be super helpful to me!
  5. Got it working on one of my computers the other day, just randomly ran it and after weeks of trying it just worked. My other computer still not working. I have tried everything. Crazy!
  6. I tried @uglycat's suggestion but no luck for me!
  7. Same as uglycat, it did not work for me! Disable both Antivirus & Firewall.
  8. I get: Then click Update & get: Windows 10 Pro!
  9. Thank You Jim, this worked for me! Crazy I was using the built-in video card the past 3 years 😂😂😂
  10. I upgraded to VW2019 from VW2018 and am having an awful issue...my projects open fine in Wireview, however when I choose a different renderer (I use Open GL) it immediately shows blinking blocks around the entire workspace area, see images below. These blocks change patterns constantly regardless of whether I move through the workspace with the orbit tool. I also included the image of when I first open the project and as you can see it looks fine. This happens with all of my projects and does not happen in 2018 with projects I have not yet migrated to VW2019. Any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix? Thanks.
  11. Hello, I use VW 2017 and need to purchase a new PC laptop. In January I purchased a new MSI WS60, which I thought would work great for Vectorworks. It was AWFUL. I hook it up to an external 1920x1080 USB 3.0 monitor (Asus MB168B+) and I had to lower the resolution of the laptop monitor to adjust, which I have no problem with. The problem is the text scaling was always off (regardless of the DPI & cleartext settings) and the windows in VectorWorks NEVER maintained their correct location if I closed and opened the app, or restarted or anything. I also had tons of the "ghosting" lines around the windows when I moved them. On my desktop, I have no problems. Using a different monitor isn't really an option because all of my travel kits (I'm always on the road) already have this monitor. So I am asking for recommendations on a model or brand of laptop that will work better. I bought the MSI because it was marketed as a CAD laptop, but it was terrible. Budget isn't really an issue for me, I use this laptop every day on the road for my job. I don't really do any serious rendering, just wireframe documents exported to PDF. I would like the laptop to be same size as the MSI WS60 so it fits in all my bags....the size of that was 15.3 x 10.5 x 0.8 inches. Any advice is appreciated. Thank You.
  12. Hi Jim, Thanks for your reply....I think I'm going to try VW2016 on the Macbook Pro and see if that solves any stability issues....Thank You.
  13. Hello, I am looking into purchasing either an MSI WS60 or MSI WT60 for VW2016. What are the main differences between these two units? My main attraction to the WS60 is that it is a lot thinner and stylish. I am currently using a Macbook Pro (early 2013) in dual-boot (using VW2010 on the PC side) but due to a combination of Win 10 on Boot Camp and VW2010 I am having some stability issues. I use an external 1920x1080 USB 3.0 monitor, and in order to spread palettes to the second monitor I need to run the resolution of the Macbook Pro at 1920x1080, which looks terrible. My main question is the difference between the Nvidia Quadro m2000m graphics card in the WS60 and the Nvidia Quadro K3100m in the WT60. Does anyone have any recommendations on these 2 machines? Should I put VW2016 on my Macbook Pro and give that a shot before jumping to a new machine? Thanks!
  14. Hi Jim, I tried the update, no luck. Same error message. But if it's worth anything I don't think I've ever updated Vectorworks. Should I have installed earlier SP's first?
  15. I have been using Vectorworks 2010 without issue on a Windows 7 64bit machine for a few years. About a week ago, I got an error message "Vectorworks 2010 Application has stopped working". Here are the details: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: Vectorworks2010.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 4b0e2827 Fault Module Name: StackHash_4c0d Fault Module Version: Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000 Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 00000000 OS Version: 6.1.7601.

  16. Thanks for the info....probably a good thing for them to add to future editions!
  17. Hi, I'm trying to find an easier way to view/blind layers. Currently you have to click the layers button, then select the layers (which doesn't auto-preview), then click OK. Is there a way to keep the layers window up, and have it auto-preview, like it does in the actual Vectorworks 2010 application? Thanks!
  18. Hello, I am trying to number seats and give letters to aisles in VW Spotlight 2010. Does anyone know how to do this? I don't want to do it manually.... Thanks!
