    VW 2019 How to import PDF?

    I am sure there is an obvious answer but as usual searching help or googling don't answer this simple question. I cannot figure out how to import a PDF! My old VW 2013 had an import option but it has vanished in my 2019. Thanks for your patience with me...

    Trim tool 'cuts' up rectangles

    I draw purely in 2D using lines and polygons/rectangles. In older versions of VW I would plunk my window into a wall and 'cut' the wall with a temporary line to break it. Now when I do this it also breaks up the rectangle I have that represents the jamb which I don't want. Older versions used to leave the rectangle intact. Is there a fix or work around to this aside from using a addition number of key strokes to remove the rectangle then paste in place when I am done cutting? Thanks in advance

    Old dog, new VW - Custom Legacy Script Pallette problem

    Wow, Thanks - Problem fixed. Thanks rDesign!
  5. Hi Just made the leap from VW 2013 to 2019 and am having problem with a custom script pallette we had made 20 years ago that allows me to easily set lineweights. Have been able to use it with out problems through all the years but now does not seem to work. I have confirmed the script is the same as it was on my v2013 and it works there. Also have another script pallette to change line weights and that one seems to work fine. Attached here is a screenshot of the pallette, the error message, and the script. Any help would be much appreciated. I very much value being able to keep same setup and workflow as before and do realize there are other ways to change lineweights, but this is simple and very familiar to me. thanks in advance. Regards Mark

    VW 2013 Jumpy cursor

    Indeed it was and I clung onto it as long as I could. When I finally made the jump to 2013 it always boggles my mind that, while they do fix and improve somethings, they seem to also undo little good things that existed in earlier versions. For example - in 2013 when I generate a pdf - VW requires me to click to ok acknowledge it has successfully generated the pdf - like it wants me to say 'good job VW' before I am allowed to keep working. Oh, and my most hated one is when I draw sections and have rectangles for plates and joists and then have to trim some lines that touch the rectangle - the bloody thing trims the rectangle too and turns it into a 3 sided polyline!! Makes me want to scream. I must click my mouse a million times a day and if I was VW I would design future updates to reduce the number of clicks I need to make - not add to them for no aparent benefit Sorry, I had to rant. I'll stop now

    VW 2013 Jumpy cursor

    Mouse is clean, snaps are off - It doesnt seem to help - I am thinking maybe my Macbook is the issue now - I guess I spend all day on VW so notice it most there but my computer does sort of hang up - it is 7 years old. Problem is if I upgrade my laptop - I pretty much have to upgrade my license and am not ready for such a big hit

    VW 2013 Jumpy cursor

    Been gettting worse and worse - my cursor seems to ping around when moving my mouse and it is difficult to make accurate selections. Granted I am on a 2010 Macbook pro with 8GB Ram and my first guess is I am running out of RAM or the computer is getting too old. My files sizes are all small and it doesnt happen in other software like Sketchup. Any suggestions ?

    VW 2013 - All of my saved views just disappeared!!!!!

    Yeah - I did a reboot hoping it would restore the views but it didnt in the one file - but when I reopened other ones the views were there - musta been a 'hick'

    VW 2013 - All of my saved views just disappeared!!!!!

    Nope - neither - that said I just tried opening an older version of the file and for some reason the views reappeared so I cut and paste my new work over and resaved - seem to be up and running - but was super weird they disappeared.
