  1. I'm not sure if this is a bug or if there is a workaround- but i am reorganising my Resource browser and have created a bunch of empty folders to re-sort my existing symbols into, however it appears i can move a symbol from the root folder into a folder which already has other objects in, but if i try and drop it into a newly named and empty folder, it just won't move. The folder doesn't appear with a [right-click] {move} and the items just go straight to the root folder if you try and drag and drop? Im on build SP4- 435714.

  2. Hi,

    I still haven't been able to solve this.

    Ive tried various different configurations, new drivers etc and it doesn't seem to help.

    I was wondering if somebody would be able to send over an A3 setup document that prints to scale to check that its not any weirdly different setting in the drawing.

    In the latest set of tests i have been doing i have a 7500mm scale test line along the bottom of the page, and in some occasions that appears to be correct hen scaled with an architects rule however a shorter line, lets say 5500mm (along the same axis), appears to be too short when scaled after printing.

    Should i uninstall Vectorworks and re-install? It sound like a printer issue rather than a Vectorworks issue however i have never had this problem before.



  3. Hi,

    I am experiencing a bizarre scaling problem for the first time.

    I am using an HP Officejet 7500A Wide Format printer, but have also tried on a Brother MFC-J5625DW A3 Printer.

    I have tried this with two completely different versions of Vectorworks (Spotlight 2014, and Fundamentals 2016). However i am still seeing the same problem. I have also tried this on two different machines, both Macs, both running El Capitan (one 10.11.2 and one 10.11.3)

    I noticed the problem when scaling a plan that some of the lines along the X axis of the page were slightly longer than the correct scale despite the Y axis lines being correct. So, to begin troubleshooting i took the problem back to basics. I have set-up an A3 drawing in 1:25. In Page Setup i have ensured the Horizontal and Vertical are both set to 1 and i have selected an A3 page in the Printer Setup (ensuring the scaling says 100%). To be sure i have created a custom sized page (the problem occured with a standard A3 selection also). I created a 297 by 420mm zero margin page and selected this as my paper size.

    I have tried using a Viewport and setting the page scale to 1:1 and Viewporting to 1:25, the same problem occurs.

    I have also tried printing directly from Vectorworks and exporting to PDF. The same problem occurs.

    I am sure its a Printer Driver issue, but the weird thing is i have never had this problem before, even though i am using the same version of VWX and have not changed my printer.

    Has anybody else experienced a similar issue?

    I have attached a bunch of screenshots showing a basic box drawn at 7500mm by 6000mm, as well as a picture of the line against an architects ruler showing the 6000mm line reading at 6020mm.

    Thanks in advance,


  4. Hi,

    I have 6 or 7 different Label Legends and if i click 'Edit Layout' and go into one of them and make the Channel attribute BOLD and then go back to the document it has made this legend Bold, but then after a 'Refresh Symbol' if any of the channel attributes in any of the other legends were bold, they then lose this within the document. Is this a bug? Or meant to be like this, if so is there a way of disabling?
