  1. Mine is always on this setting you show Adam, it is the one that works best for my computer. But still get symbols to disappear when using floating pane.
  2. A way to force Smart Curser Cues to stay on until you click on an are you sure button. I use them often but mine keep switching off after 3 clicks of the mouse. I have removed all shortcut keyboard keys that could turn this off, but still it goes off as it wants to. And now with 2019 the Snap to Angles goes off on its own too.
  3. My symbols disappear when using a floating pane, which I love using having 2 monitors. Even after closing the floating pane they stay gone. I can not even select them or see any grab handles. The symbol even disappears from the Resource Manager. When I try to bring the same symbol back into the file, it ask if I want to replace it, so it is still there. The only way I can get them back is to close VW & restart it, this is with out restarting the computer. Then they are all back. Due to this I quit using the floating pane, which sucks, it is really nice to have the other view as reference & to be able to edit on the fly.

    Teigha library error

    I've just now getting this error when exporting a very simple VW drawing to a DWG version 10. My VW drawing is just 2D lines, hatches, & a PDF title block.
  5. Thanks to you guys, I got it working. You helped me pass a brain fart. Instead of searching for the word AS, I should have searched for AS METAL, because I also have AS CONC. & AS MASONRY BLOCK. I entered AS with a space afterwords & it found AS CONC. not a word with the letters AS in it. So I searched for AS METAL & found out I got all of them. Thanks again!
  6. I'll try that, Thanks Zoomer. I us AS in a lot of notes so construction knows what type of material to use for a fake finish, as in AS METAL JAMB. I have it listed everywhere on a drawing & now it changed to real metal. So I have changed all that I can find but it would be nice to double check with this tool, but it keeps going the the word BASE. I've never had this happen before.
  7. The Find & Replace Text Tool works great except when I am trying to find all occurrences of the word "AS". The Find & Replace Tool is finding every word with "AS" in the spelling of the word, like BASE. There needs to be a selection to find the exact spelling or single word, not every word that has these two letters in it.

    Thanks for asking, it does not happen in Best Performance setting nor did it happen in Best Compatibility setting. And in the Best Performance the Floating View Port is working much better now. Thanks!

    Just installed SP-3 and when zooming more ghost images are appearing that are not there & objects already drawn disappearing, but everything comes back after zooming. I have the Good Performance & Compatibility setting under Display. Any settings suggestions to minimize this ?
  10. is there a SP3 for VW 2019 ? I have SP2 and says I'm up to date when ever I check it. Also, I get symbols disappearing too & can not select then when selecting all items. They come back after closing the file & re-opening it. This happens faster if using a floating view port, which I use to use a lot but now in 2019 can not. This is with any of the graphics settings. And using the middle level of the graphics settings and working on a file for many hours I start getting random objects visible when zooming in & out, even thought they are not really there. That is why I'm hoping for a SP3 for 2019

    It is not in my DropBox, maybe somebody shared it with you.

    Export to SketchUp - 2019 VW

    Sorry cberg, I did not catch it was a plug in in Sketchup in order to do this. I'll give it a try. Thanks

    Export to SketchUp - 2019 VW

    cberg, I have SketchUp 2018 Pro & can not see the exported file FBX which becomes a 3D Object file. In SU using the import menu it will not recognize the file to import. Guess I'm going have to just edit somebody else's SU file to the existing as built conditions which will make it more fun. Thanks though

    Export to SketchUp - 2019 VW

    Thanks cberg, I just tried the first option (3DS), it took for ever to convert & a the same to get into SU, then it is very slow navigating it.
