  1. Matt Thanks ... Two problems here. One - (Went back and checked this ...) Unable to visually tell that the Organization Dialog is Sorted by the heading Op... (Something that I would never intentionally click on.) (Its that little arrow !) As the Op... is the same for the Layers in this case, (don't use this feature) the Stacking order appears correct. So... based on this, I could see how the drag & drop function may NOT work as expected, but... Yet, why is one is able to double click a Layer enter a new Stacking Order in the Edit Design Layer dialog box, then hit the return? The VW Help pop up appears on top, of this Edit Design Layer dialog box then tells you that there are other way to do this, though there is no indication that what you just were able to do, will not work. Very frustrating. Peter
  2. Pat Updated VW Still happens ... Right clicking to edit or to apply I use the track pad on the MacBook Pro and left hand on the keyboard. The video shows that, unless I click the resource first, then right click to edit, it edits what ever was selected (Often out of view). This is aggravating as I almost always apply / edit textures with a right click inside the Resource Browser. ¿ Something is not set right ? Same drawing method dating back to (even before ?) VW 2013 Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 Suggestions ? Peter ************************************************** Resource Select Error.mov
  3. Pat Already had the Automatic Graphic Switching Off Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 Suggestions ? Peter **************************************************
  4. Pat I find that the Legacy Screen Plane appears to resets it self. (¿ Something I do ? / something automated ?) Here is an example where the Worksheet appeared on the Layer Plane ( ¿ a useless location ?)So... added steps to correct, what once was not an issue. Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 Suggestions ? Peter **************************************************
  5. Pat If you only use 2D/3D Hybrid Symbols, with a single Screen Plane 2D component, how would / should you utilize the Component Dialog ? Suggestions are always appreciated Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 Peter **************************************************
  6. Backlit shader example Question: Does someone have an example of the Backlit shader in action. Preferably a Texture with an Image for the color shader ? The Backlit shader appears to wash out any Image I include with it in a Texture. Suggestions are appreciated Peter
  7. ¿ Do 2D Legacy / Unified View Drawing Preference auto reset ? Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 File / Document Settings / Document Preferences / Legacy 2D I have the Turn Off Unifed View checked. On several occasions I have successfully Published Saved Views to PDFs. (These Saved Views are Rendered Perspectives drawn on a single layer, accompanied by a border or other repeating layer set to a 1:1 scale) Returning to / re opening the drawing to make edits, I again Publish the same set of Saved Views, only to find layer(s) missing in the resulting PDFs. Checking the 2D Legacy Preferences I find the Turn Off Unified View option unchecked. ¿ Does this 2D Legacy Preference auto rest based on what / where / how you are drawing ? FYI - What is usually missing is a layer of a different scale than the active layer. Document Preference: Ignore layers with different scale is NOT checked Suggestions ? Peter
  8. ¿ Do 2D Legacy / Screen Plane Drawing Preference auto reset ? Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 File / Document Settings / Document Preferences / Legacy 2D I have the Screen Plane Only checked. On several occasions I have created 2D components drawing in a front or right view, that end up as Layer Plane (Working Plane) geometry. When I look at the Legacy 2D preferences they have re set to Working plane only? Typical this is when editing existing 2D / 3D Hybrid Symbols ¿ Does this Preference rest it self based on what / where / how you are drawing ? Suggestions ? Peter
  9. Custom Selection Tool Issue - Bug ? Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 Open the Custom Selection Tool dialogue. Selection based on Fill Fore Color - Dialog indicates that there are 129 Objects that meet the criteria: (See the attached - Page 1) Add a second Fill Fore Color now there are zero Objects that meet the criteria ? (See the attached - Page 2) ¿ Custom Selection is only able to select one color at a time? … or it is an AND situation for more than one criteria at a time ? Click OK, and the resulting selection is not indicated in the drawing, although components are actually selected. (See the attached - Page 3) FYI - Drawing was a 3DS import with a majority of Mesh Geometry. Suggestions ? Peter Custom Selection_Issue_1.pdf
  10. Unable to alter Stacking Order - Memory Bug? Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 Edit Layer in the Organization Dialog box - Unable to Manually or Drag & Drop to change the stacking order. Appears to happen after VW is open / running for several days. Quit / Restart VW fixes issue. (¿ Memory Issue ?) Suggestions ? Peter Stacking Order.mov
  11. Mac OS 11.6.5 - MacBook Pro - VW Designer 2022 In the Properties Dialog Box, for a selected item, with the cursor select the Width, enter a dimension, tab to the next entry to revise the dimension for Height and the cursor moves down to the Location X. Tabbing does not follow expected / successive order. (See attached) Suggestions ? Peter Resource Dialog Box.mov
  12. Mac OS 11.6.5 - Mac Book Pro - VW Designer 2022 You should be able to right-click on an item in the Resource Palette an pull down to the Edit option. This is traditionally what has worked. VW 2022 - one now is required to click once to select the desired item, then right click to get the Edit option for the desired item. ¿ Extra step now required ? Suggestions ? Peter Wrong Resource Selected.mov
  13. Thanks rDesign ! @Luis M Ruiz ¿ Are you able to share the CAD file for the above stained glass window example ? Thanks Peter
  14. Disappearing geometry bug inside Symbol Edit / Inside Extrude Edit VW 2022 OS 11.6.5 If you zoom or move, the base geometry (While inside the Edit Extrude Mode & Inside the Edit Symbol mode), it is visible. When you stop it “disappears” Able to edit, just not easily. See attached Frustrating Peter 2D disappears in 3D Symbold edit mode.mov
  15. Andy Component edit now required additional work when compared to the original simplicity of 2D / 3D Hybrid symbols. (I have gone back and tested in VW 2013 for example ...) My Work around is to copy the 2D / 3D Symbol and move it to a new drawing. (This isolates the edit process) I convert it in to groups, edit as needed, remake the symbol and import / replace the modified 2D/3D Hybrid back into the original document. Ugh ! Suggestions are always appreciated Peter
