    Viewport Annotation Dimensions

    I dont think this has been a thing for a while. Set up two dimension standards, one for the primary dimensions and one for the secondary dimensions. this has been available for years.

    What is the Set Up Best Procedure for 2019

    every once in a while it is worth starting from scratch. I too have been starting a new template for 2019, trying to use the new class tags and filters, custom tool/attribute palettes, etc.

    @BG we need a tool that creates all the flashings, coverings, boards, gutters, and downpipes in one go.

    to renew or not to renew (that is the question)

    was there supposed to be a link to show which tools don't work?

    Pre-selection highlighting ...

    hi John, you might be having trouble selecting objects, one that is in front of the other. Vectorworks uses the stacking order to select objects. This means that the last object created is the first one selected. try holding your finger on the B key to make all the objects see-through. It sounds as though you need of an introduction to Vectorworks.

    OT: professional practice question for UK architects

    Dan, I think it is a good practice to have “NOT FOR CONSTRUCTION” on the drawings, until the client has paid.

    Not getting smart points at all

    Have you tapped the Y key, by mistake? It is the hot key for hiding or showing screen hints

    to renew or not to renew (that is the question)

    when I get asked, my advice is to pay for vss and keep Vectorworks up to date if it is your main tool for generating work. It is cheaper in the long run to have Vectorworks up to date, rather than paying the price of not having tools that you need.
