  1. Are there any answers to this question?
  2. It looks like this was submitted as a wish list request in 2014, but it was probably not implemented.
  3. Is there any way to show the slope dimension in fractions instead of decimals?
  4. 10.5 years later.... Is there any way to control dashed hidden line thickness?
  5. If you don't mind, I will send to you directly, because there is client sensitive info in the files. C.
  6. Hi Pat, Thanks for looking at this. The same file backsaved into VW2023 generates a different worksheet result. How is is this possible? Assuming you are correct, entering .33 into my record field should result in 4"; however when I do this, the Record Format Length displays as 3/8".
  7. I was struggling with worksheets this morning, and discovered a VW Worksheet glitch. VW 2024 makes an error when calculating lengths in a worksheet that is generated from a custom record. Document Units in both files are set to Feet and Inches. When I back saved the same file to VW2023 the error went away. In the first spreadsheet (VW2024) , a 4" Base Plate displays as 4'-0" (Not good!) You can see the record format shows the correct length, but the worksheet miscalculates the units. In the second spreadsheet (VW2023) the 4" Base Plate displays as 4" (Correct) Screenshot of the custom Record Format and worksheet at the bottom of page. Some more information about the custom Record Formats
  8. Thank you. The problem also happens when you make Roof Faces. (Rectangles seem to be the culprit).
  9. Thank you for the 67 New Toto Sanitary Fixtures. It makes a big difference getting useful VW Content. 😋
  10. Looks like the VW window tool does this but Windoor does not? Interesting.
  11. Is there a way to create this window in the Window/Windoor tool, or do I need to make a custom symbol? I guess the technical name of this shape is an arched single hung.
  12. Thank you. @M5d and @Tom W.. Interestingly. VW2024 now includes an option for gap below leaf, which did not exist in VW2023. For whatever reason, I can manage Windoor for windows, but I absolutely can't deal with Windoor for doors. Something about that tool is profoundly counterintuitive at times.
  13. Is there a way to set a keyboard command to activate the transform mode? (preferable to toggle). I know that U toggles between the different mode groups. But it would be nice to activate it directly somehow.
  14. It drives me absolutely crazy that VW can't even draw an "X" in rough timber sections. This can't be a difficult feature to add to the framing member object. While we are at it, it is also mind-boggling that the wall framer command resorts to making geometry as 3D Solids instead of something parametric with top and bottom offset controls. Conceptually, framing as an overlay to the wall tool (which can be manipulated separately as needs arise but could be updated/ linked) makes a little more sense than trying to keep everything contained in the wall. To incrementally achieve fully framed walls, VW needs to develop a tool (or set of tools) that accomplishes framing. VW has a horizontal framing member but no vertical framing counterpart, which is inexplicable and tragic. The roadmap mentions "openings" as a new tool that will be developed, but the description is vague. Conceptually, openings could be a critical element in creating a framing vocabulary. (Horizontal members, Vertical Studs/Posts + Openings -- Think of the infinite BIM possibilities...) The mullion tool (which few people probably use) could form the basis for a "to be developed" Stud/Post Tool. The Stud/Post Tool should have a few profile shape options, like LG Metal Studs and 2 x sizes. There should be options for some connections and data regarding fasteners. Most importantly, the tool could integrate top/bottom offsets. Once developed, there should be a way to link the horizontal and vertical framing elements, like in the structural member tool. The problem is that VW is too "plan-focused," and all of this connection needs to happen in a vertical plane. Maybe create a wrapper of some sort to contain all the elements). Just some thoughts with only a half cup of coffee this morning.
