    2019 SP1 is FUBAR

    I cannot believe this 2019 version was actually released to the public....simply horrible experience. I cannot put up with this any longer. CIAO.

    Texture Mapping onto Wall and Slab Components

    This is not done yet...since 2016 !!!! Seems more important than point cloud toys to me... I have a slab not perpendicular to the axis and have to workaround.

    2019 sp1.1 - Window Custom Sash BUG

    BUG, if I divide my window in 4 columns, then lock the 2 center panes, then divide the unit in 2 rows, I get what you see to the left of the attached image. The BUG comes in when I make the 2 top end panes as operable casement (as they were all fixed type initially). This cause sash and glass panes to get change sizes and misaligned to one another.

    Service Pack 1 for Vectorworks 2019 Released

    VW is still not remembering the last view of a saved file with 2019 SP 1.1.....note that I posted here as Juan locked his forum post, guessing he did not want to get beeped with all our comments!?

    Service Pack 1 for Vectorworks 2019 Released

    Glad to see the Hamster wheels are spinning at VW 😉
  6. With all this AI and machine learning stuff going around on the internets, would it not be feasible to enable Autosave but have VW software recognize that we are in the middle of an operation or viewport rendering, in which case it would either abort the autosave & reset it's timer OR monitor the usage till the next inactive opportune moment to autosave.

    2019 BUG - Fit walls to object not working

    Hey Peter thank you once again for putting me back on the right path, this is what I tested out and resolved my problem. The fit walls was not working properly as my gypsum ceiling plane extended to the interior face of the exterior walls only (as it would be built). But because my interior walls have T-joins to the exterior walls, their control point in plan view ends up at the center of the exterior walls. So to remedy, as you suggested, I simply duplicated the and offset temporary "dummy" geometry for the ceiling plane and ran the "fit walls to object" command again, all was resolved. @Jim Wilson this is odd behavior as every-time I have a sloped ceiling with wall joins i'd have to create temp "dummy geometry" due to the control point being offset outside the ceiling plane.

    Service Pack 1 for Vectorworks 2019 Released

    The frustration with VW 2019 on this forum is very reminiscent of several years ago...what has happened to the quality control and pride of issuing stable software. I personally feel that VW should be paying me/us to file all these bugs as it's become ridiculous. Sorry but here's NOT HAPPY. I mean issue a release with less new features, but it's got to be usable software at a minimum.

    Translation of Marionette object?

    I have a Marionnette object written by DomC in German, can Vectorworks translate to English?...Can a Marionette object be done to translate another Marionette object using Google Translate?

    Nesting parts for CNC

    Hi, I thought I saw somewhere a Marionette network for nesting geometric shape parts within a rectangle. I need this to layout parts quickly on a plywood sheet for CNC cutout. Here's an example, Anyone?

    VW2017 - OpenGL render not working in SL viewports which view DLVPs

    I don't know if VW get's it, but they need to slow down on the annual release features that simply make the latest version UNUSABLE. To top it off they actually advertised that this release as follows and I quote "Dr. Sarkar said this year when they approached the development of version 2019 they divided 90 tasks into three major categories. These three categories were simplifying workflows, enhancing modeling, and lastly, enhancing quality and performance." Pretty hard to do when the software barely works, Rant over!

    BUG - Viewports with applied image effects

    So it seems that if I disable viewport cache, switch viewport to open GL and update, then switch back to Realistic Exterior final and update, then finally re-apply image effects....I actually get my viewports to update properly...This is crazy !!! Oh and Make sure I move zoom level to update screen refresh. I hope this 2019 get's better quick!
