  1. A feature that is critical for productivity is adding live updating of text as your resize the text or note block. I shouldn't have to resize the text block to see how the text repaginates. The text show repaginate live as I reside the text or note block.
  2. Vectorworks is missing some basic word processing functions, including multi-column layout where the text can flow from one column to another. This function would be most helpful when creating basic specs on a sheet to include in a set or residential construction documents that don't require an entire spec booklet.
  3. When drawings walls in Vectorworks, all the components that make up the wall, gyp. board, plywood, stucco, show. How do I get it so that when I print, all I see are two lines with the center poche? similar to old school drafting?

    Bi-Pass Closet Doors

    For a residential closet I inserted a door and changed the doors to a bi-pass. The issue is though that in plan view the doors show mostly open and I would like them to appear closed. I didn?t find any settings to change the look of these doors. Can they be changed?

    construction lines

    Does Vectorworks have an equivalent to AutoCAD?s Construction lines? In AutoCAD Construction Lines are lines that extend to infinity in one or both directions and can be set either vertically or horizontally.
