  1. I think the problem is that there are no icons for these Menu Items. And at present the Smart Option Display only works with Tools and Tool Modes.
  2. @zoomer Sure I can go to the menu bar and select. Or right click from the context menu. Or remember / set up a key command combination that i can remember.... I guess you are right that i can put Layer and Class Visibilities into the object context menu. Having worked as many years in VW, as I have, I think key commands are probably quicker than the smart option display. Trying to figure out how to make this feature work for me.
  3. It would be helpful if you could quickly toggle Layer And Class Visibility Options in the Smart Option Display. On any given VW day I find myself using these options quite a bit. And while I usually control them via right clicking, doing this requires one to avoid clicking on any objects. Not sure how hard this would be to implement, but it would be useful to have this as a Smart Option. While we are at it, a visibility toolbar would be helpful. Being able to hide and show objects would ease working in complex model conditions where grouping and clip cubes are not feasible.
  4. Just a quick question. If I am reading your note correctly, for licensed SmartPaste users, (not PRO), it will cost £50 to upgrade to upgrade to PRO. Is there an option for upgrading to a "non-PRO" version of SmartPaste? Or is the mid-tier version the one that will be discontinued? Will that allow you to upgrade to VW2021?
  5. @GioPet Any updates regarding Smartpaste and VW 2020/2021/2022?
  6. I would LOVE to see what's in store for VW 2022. :-). (Just giving you a hard time.) Looking forward to VW2021 as well. I very much appreciate the dialogue with the VW team. Cheers! C.
  7. In the Resources Manager, find the nested texture for the image prop. Select the "Edit" button next to the Transparency Pull down menu. Adjust the image to the desired opacity.
  8. I've wasted countless hours making a homebrew 3d Grid using 3d rectangles (so they would show up in my sections). Excited to use the 3d Grid tool. I think this was on a wishlist from a few years ago.
  9. While the stacked wall/custom wall component feature was previewed in this year's Virtual Design Summit, it was made clear shortly afterwards, that wall improvements would not be included in this year's release.
  10. Thank you. Looks like the person making the dwg would have needed to change the settings. Importing this type of file anyway seems to show me what I need.
  11. I am getting an odd error message when trying to import a site dwg file. What does this error message mean? And what is VW suggesting the user do to fix the issue?
  12. If you are using a DTM site model, then I would use a similar approach but do it slightly differently. I would build the DTM model in a separate file, the file with your civil information. Reference it back into your original model, rotated and place the referenced file normal to your building. Then I would copy the DTM from the civil site file into the building file, and rotate it into position to match. The benefit to working this way is that civil drawings are often set far from the drawing origin which creates VW modeling issues. The other way is to use this tool to work your building model in a rotated view. Which I don't always like.
  13. If it's a 2d survey, I would reference your survey into the building drawing/model as an external reference. That allows you to rotate the reference file viewport and maintain your orthogonal building orientation. It also prevents a bunch of civil engineering / survey classes from polluting the file.
  14. This is what comes to mind when I think of bi-fold doors. If so, you can do this in VW.... Are you thinking of something different?
