  1. Yes! I have exactly this problem. Doesn't seem to matter how I set the database criteria it doesn't seem to want to recognise attached accessories. -TL
  2. Update: this appears only to be an issue when using symbols with Light Info Records attached. I’ve tried removing the Light Info Records from the symbol and it works exactly as expected. Anyone got any idea what’s causing this or how to get round the issue? Thanks!
  3. No joy 🙁 The 2D elements are now all polygons, but the problem persists. I have both “Background Render” and “Foreground Render” set to “Hidden Line” in the OIP, and “Display 2D Components” selected.
  4. Thanks guys. I have 2019, so hopefully that’s not an issue. The 2D component is made up of polylines though... I’ll try making a polygon instead when I’m back at my computer.
  5. I'm struggling to get 2D renderings to appear when using viewports, and can't work out what I'm doing wrong. I've edited an existing hybrid symbol to include 2D representations for each of Back, Front, Left, Right but no matter what I do I only ever seem to see only the 3D object in the viewport. I honestly have no idea what I'm missing so any help would be appreciated. Thanks. I've followed the workflow here: http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2019/eng/VW2019_Guide/Symbols/Workflow_Using_2D_Components_of_Symbols_and_Plug-in_Objects_in.htm#XREF_17531_Using_2D
  6. Amazing. Thanks so much. I'm sure I used to know how to do that but it's 10 years since I used VW.
  7. Hi all. I'm trying to set up some viewports to get everything I need on to one page from a larger lighting plan, but for some reason in any 3D views, all of the lanterns are showing with the light source (which doesn't scale - two pics attached; one zoomed in and one zoomed out) and I can't for the life of me get rid of it! The same issue is not present where viewports are not involved. Any help much appreciated.
  8. I'm fairly new to architect (been using Spotlight for a while) so am working on a few projects to get me going. I've got the basic model of my house drawn up, and have constrained the walls to each other on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors, and have put in associative dimensions for all of them as well. My issue is that when I alter the associative dimensions, I either get an error message (not compatible with other constraints already in the drawing), or the program just crashes and quits. If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong, then help would be most appreciated. I seem to be coping with everything else just fine but this is killing me as I have to reload the program each time I try something new to resolve it! Cheers. -- VW 2010, Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard
