  1. Thanks, that helps. However, I've attached the pdf as a referenced file meaning when I update the orignal .xls file it updates automatically in VectorWorks. This is working for me except I don't understand what circumstances VW uses to auto-update the file (when it opens?) nor do I know how to tell VW to update the referenced files, which I'd like to do directly after changing the xls file so I see how it looks on the VW page. Any advice on that? Cheers!
  2. Using VW 2009, just created an active worksheet (dumbly located as "VA create report" under Tools) imported a tab delimited Excel file and it was badly mangled as to be useless. Imported a .pdf of the fle instead. Theres got to be a better way. The VA Create report allows only a bunch of pre-created templates (Door Schedule, etc.). Can I create a blank worksheet? Surely someone has done this sort of import before with success? Novice user, RJC
  3. Hmmm, I use VW 2009 in conjunction with Sketchup. Only 1/2 of my work in VW has been in 3D as the drawing / ideation and results are so much faster in SU and altho I have RW I use a repeat drawing in SU to show finishes, cause its quicker. My hope was VW 2011 was 3D oriented enough to eliminate the use of SU. The online training/webinars showed that promise so I was excited about loading it up. I'm confident that NV is dealing with the slow regen issues and stability but I will stick to VW 2009 and Sketchup together until this forum reports better success. Maybe that's pessimistic but better the evil I know...... Your posted thoughts appreciated! RJC
  4. Slow in the office after completing a couple of projects. Pulled out the 2011 install discs and thought I'd check out the forum for reviews / instructions before installing. What I see about VW 2011 being slow and crash-y has made me hesitate. Is everyone using VW 2011 regretting the upgrade?
