    Extents above Cut Plane - Clean wall outline

    can you turn off the classes for the components? (assuming that the components are on separate classes to the overall wall?

    Classes how to create subclasses?

    why dont you use Layer and Class mapping to convert all the classes into the order that you want. you can save the layer and class setting to reuse them

    Can't Mirror a Hybrid Symbol?

    Yes, this is the expected behaviour. Hybrid symbols can only be rotated or mirrored in top plan. Removing the plan portion of the symbol should allow you mirror the object vertically.

    Best way to create site model without VW Landscape?

    you don't need landmark to create a site model, the commands you need are in Architect, in the AEC menu. You can create a site model from 3D loci, stake objects, or 3D polygons.

    Different component heights or layers?

    put them on the same layer and set them to the different heights. Having too many layers would get confusing.

    PDF Manipulation?

    if it has been created as a vector-based pdf. If it a raster-based pdf, then no.

    PDF Manipulation?

    i think it's reasonably easy. crop the PDF, clip a hole in it. I made a movie to show you

    Extrude along path

    to start with, Vectorworks uses the center of the profile object. Create the EAP then edit the profile. Move the profile to the desired location.

    nudge disabled

    Do you have other software running in the background. I seem to remember something like chrome interfering with nudge.
  12. You can scale a symbol with the Object Info palette or the selection tool
  13. This Is just one way to do it, there are others. You can start with the site model file. Create a new design layer. Instead of creating a blank design layer, copy a design layer from another file. This is the lower part of the dialog box. Ensure that you choose all the layers that make up the 3D model and that you choose the option at the bottom to import later options. Now adjust the plan location to suit the site and adjust the layer elevation of the site model to suit the building. Another way is to use a design layer viewport where you reference in the 3D model. That will make it easy to move and rotate the 3D model and change the elevation to suit the site.

    Viewport Layer Stack Order

    it should be on the right. try restarting your Vectorworks if you don't see the numbers. You have to be able to see the numbers sometimes I have to make my navigation palette wider.

    How to Move Walls.

    I thought of the move too, but I thought the original question was more about dragging a few walls together
