  1. I have never seen this when having a wall with 2 door symbols in it. I'm using the Split Tool to cut the wall into 2 sections, each with a door in it so I can move one wall further into the room. But every time I try to cut the wall in two it moves the symbols in the wall & is doing weird stuff. I've always been able to trim a wall in between symbols & at the ends wit hthe Split Tool or with a line crossing over it & using the Trim tool with no movement of the symbols in the wall. Anyone else having this happen? Would it be a setting somewhere I've changed by mistake? Any suggestions would be appreciated! Now the only way I can do this correctly is to re-drawl both walls & re-insert the symbols into the same location. CRAZY! Update - It is good to know others are having same issue with the symbols in walls when splitting the wall. I've been trying everything I know & trying to find a work around. I have done a complete un-install of everything VW & Nemetschek from my computer, even from the registry. Then a new install, after setting everything back to the way I like & trying the split the wall with symbols in it, the same thing happens, it splits the wall but moves all symbols in it. I have now tried this with my wall style & my 2d door symbol & does not work correctly. Then tried with a VW wall style & my 2d door symbol and it does not work correctly. Then with a VW wall style & a VW 2d/3d point plug in object & it worked. It also works with my wall style & VW 2d/3d point plug in object. This sucks because all I am doing is 2d drafting work & the 2d/3d point plug in object is larger in file size which will make the file size larger which leads to problems with the file. All I need are 2d symbols for the doors & windows & do not see any in the Resource pallet. I even tried to make a 2d door symbol from the VW plug in door & it does not work right when splitting the wall. Attached is a blank document file with my wall style, my 2d door symbol, & a VW plug in 2d/3d door symbol for anybody else to see if they get the same results or can tell me what the difference is between my 2d symbol & the 2d/3d plug in symbol. Thanks for any suggestions to resolve this or a good work around. Thanks! VW wall test file.vwx
  2. Thanks jnr, this is something else to try. Since I just got done uninstalling every instance of VW in my computer, even everything in the Registry, & a complete new install, the same thing happens which really sucks. On Friday I was editing a long wall in a movie set that connected many rooms in a hospital set. It was determined we did not need to build some of the wall between some rooms. To edit this wall I had to mark where each door & window symbol was, pull them out of the wall, split the wall to the sections I needed, then re-insert the door & window symbols. Funny when you drag the door symbol back over the wall to insert it, VW flips the orientation of the door so you have to edit it again. So I just tried changing the work space from Architect, which I always use to Architect BIM and the same thing happens, What gives? Only in version 2020 has this happened to me. jnr, which workspace did you switch to that corrected this issue? Thanks
  3. Update - after renaming the user folder, rebooting, and starting VW, when using my wall type & VW door symbol it splits fine, no problem. But if I insert my 2d symbol, so far any of them, it does the same thing. So it must have something to do with my 2d symbols that I have been using for years with no problems. So either just deal with it or remake all of my 2d symbols. After making a 2d door symbol from a 2d/3d VW door symbol and inserting it into a wall I'm getting the same strange results. So I guess the next thing I'll try is to re-install VW.
  4. Thanks!!! I have shut down & moved the computer to my office today, & same thing happens when I split a wall with symbols in it, even in a new blank file. I will try the user folder rename & see if that is it & then try re-installing VW. Of course it does this right as I start work, had many months of down time & practiced lots of 3d work with no problems.
  5. Here is another example of the issue. Now I can split the wall into two walls as lone as there are no symbols inserted in them. But when the symbols are inserted into the wall & then using the Split Tool in the Split Line Mode & trying to split the wall at the red line, as shown in first image, the second image shows the results, it moves the door symbol. I did this one in a clean new default file. So once you insert symbols into the walls you can not use the Split Tool to break the wall into separate walls with out rearranging the symbols. WOW, I just tried the Split Tool in the Point Split Mode & it locked up VW & then VW crashed. Something not right!
  6. Sorry to confuse. To clarify, in the first image, the wall in the center with 2 door symbols, when I use the split tool to split the wall in the center into two sections each with one door in it. When I did this it moved one door symbol to the far right end of the wall, the door to the left disappeared & the wall did not split in two, but the line of the wall angled towards the drawing origin. You can see the results in the second image. Hope this is a better clarification. I had to completely redraw the walls & re add the doors to get wht I was trying to do.

  8. I spoke to soon, VW just crashed again. I have even switched back to one monitor just in case the GPU could not handle everything. I know I'm pushing this older computer, my work house listed below is at my office so I'm now stuck using this older one at home. I've this one a lot last year & up to the past few days with no problems. And yes the BIOS is up to date. Attached are the crash logs. Vectorworks Log.txt VW User Log Sent.txt VW User Log.txt VW Crash REPORT 4-4-20.pdf
  9. Update - after un-installing the graphic driver & reinstalling it, then resetting the NVIDIA control panel settings to VW program settings, today, after working for 4-1/2 straight hours I had no issues. I did this graphics driver re-install after seeing issues in the Event Viewer with NVIDIA LocalSystem Container Manager. I also updated VW back to SP3.1. It must of been something with the latest NVIDIA update. Still not sure, but as anybody that works with computers as much as I do each day can bring new issues that you must learn how to resolve or work around. I'm very thankful for this VW forum to get help from other users!
  10. Update - after switching the SP3.0 back to 2.2 everything worked fine during 1 hour of continuous work on the same file and with the display set to Best Performance & Best Compatibility & a 3148 kb PDF file open on the other monitor for reference.
  11. Well I should have switch back to the 2. what the previous was, instead I tried switching back to the SP-3.0 & just now another crash, no warning & lost a half hour of work. I'm now going to switch back to the SP 2s & I am done for the day!
  12. Juan, see attached for DxDiag text doc. Thanks for letting me know how to switch back to previous version. I've changed the display setting, have nothing else open, & still every so often the screen go blank while working on an object. Which is usually what it did before crashing, so I just saved then selected a different layer & had to recenter the page & it was all there, then changed back to design layer that I was working on. Everything in my computer & VW file are the same I've been using for past 5 days working from home. Thanks for any help with this matter. I'm now going to switch back to previous service pack version so I can use the middle Display setting like I always do & have other things open. FYI, I always do a Windows update & GPU update each day I start the computer. DxDiag 4-1-20.txt
  13. I've just updated to the service pac 3.1 a couple days ago. This first day I had no problems, today with in 3 hours of 2D editing it crashed twice & the most recent auto back up was not there & lost 20 minutes of work. First time it makes both monitors go black and had to force re-boot at computer. Just now, my second monitor that was displaying a PDF of the original set of drawings came back on long enough for me to photo the error message. See attached. Strange thing, after restarting the first crash I tried opening the most recent VW backup file & it gave me a memory error & did not open, never had this before. Also I am at home using my home office computer, not the one listed in my signature. This one is as listed below; Windows 10 Pro Intel i7-3770 cpu 3.40GHz 32.0 GB installed memory 64 bit Operating System NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITIAN Black HP ZR24w Wide LCD (main) & HP 22eb monitors VW & RW 2020 SP3.1 64 bit Also, my Display setting is on Good Performance & Compatibility and now switching it to Best Compatibility to see if this helps. I just found out I lost about an hour of work this time & auto back up is not working with this crash. I have my backup set to 15 minutes & the most recent file in my backup folder is from over 45 minutes ago. How do I go back to the most recent service pack, this one is giving me problems?
  14. I have a interior model of a house with all floors, walls, ceilings with white colors. No environment lighting, no light objects. When I render it using the Realistic White Colors it comes out almost completely black & can not see any details of the rooms. The only way I can see the details is to turn off the solid fill in the floor polygon, then I can see the details but the ceiling shows up bright white while the walls & other are lighter greys. I thought Ambient lighting is suppost to light up an interior model. Am I wrong ? #4 Library-Study-Floor No Fill & grey ceiling.pdf #4 Library-Study-Solid floor & grey ceiling.pdf
  15. #Walid R., the set has changed a lot in the past 2 days & is not as big, and they are having me work on 2d elevations to work out panels & wainscots which are in a different file. Today I've tried working in the 3d file that had the issues & I can not get it to happen, I don't know if I need to be working in it for a while or not. I was able to get the walls to be visible by closing & re-opeing VW with no problem. Now the only problem I'm having is trying to do a Realistic White Colors rendering with the floor as a solid white fill the view renderings so dark you can not see anything. I do not have any light objects in it, but have the Ambient Lighting on maxed out. The only way I can see a white rendering is to have no fill in the floor polygon. Shouldn't the ambient lighting light up the room in renderings?
