  1. Using VW2021 & NVIDIA Control Panel Program Settings, see attached 3 images for settings. The perspective OpenGL viewport view is very jagged, even with the Sheet Layer Raster Rendering DPI set to 144. I have the viewport Detail Level set to high & OpenGL Options set to high & only Anti-Aliasing & Edges selected. The design layer actually looks better than the viewport. So I have reset all the NVIDIA Control Panel settings to the default with no changes and do not see any changes to the design layer & sheet layer quality. I’m trying to determine if it is just a settings issue or if I need a new graphics card, this one is about 4 years old Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Wood Scaffold Perspective.pdf
  2. JBscalia, this is some of the delay issues I'm having with VW2022. Attached is a file of a work file of a house I'm modeling. I had to copy these components into a blank file to make easier to work on that in the main model file thinking it would work faster. But no, In trying to extend the stair stringer trim, shown in red, down to the other stringer trim, shown in red, the Push Pull Tool selects the wrong face & takes time to get the correct face selected, then can not zoom in as I pull it & even the pull feature takes time to work correctly. Please if you get the chance open this file & see if you have the same delays. I'm trying to find another PC user that does not have delays like these so I can study the differences between our computer set ups. Thanks JayMilam-2021house_Model-Bldg-WORK_v2022.vwx
  3. JBscalia, I'm having this same issue in VW2022, it seems to me being a graphics issue. I've switched back to VW2021 & all of my same symbols are visible from selecting them in the Resource Browser to placing them into the walls which helps with door swing direction. With VW2022 I had to inset the door into the wall & then move it & change the swing direction I wanted. I was also getting many random black screens flashing's which I believe is related to not being able to adjust the display setting anymore. In VW 2021 I had to set the Display setting to Good Performance-Compatibility to work with minimum delays even though everyone I question says my computer should be powerful enough to run it fine. In VW2022 I was getting major delays in 2D drawing and many in 3D work. Would love to find out what in my computer is casing these graphics issues.
  4. Thanks so much for re-posting this video, now I see how to do it. Before I was making a hole in the wall with the brick mold off set & then placing the window with the brick mold attached into the opening. I knew there had to be a better way. Thanks!
  5. I'm getting lots of delays with Duplicate Array in duplicating one line to a distance, it sometimes take a count of 5 to see the new line. Getting delays with 3D work too. I'm not seeing 2d symbols after clicking on them in the Resource Browser, all I can see is a small cross hair, sometimes the symbol is not visible until I click into the drawing, on a wall or blank area. I'm also getting black outs, that last for a 5 count then the screen come back. I've had a few VW crashes & a few VW Not Responding when trying to close the program. Now that we do not have any Display Options it seems in this version of VW I do not have a powerful enough computer to push it. Yes my graphics card driver is up to date & the graphics card control panel has VW 2022 program added. After working VW2022 for about 2 weeks I'm thinking of back saving everything to use VW2021 which worked better for my computer. Any suggestions?
  6. In the door & window tools there is a Exterior & Interior Wall Detail settings. They only allow you to splay the jamb/wall edge. In all brick veneer buildings I have worked on here in USA the typical exterior details is to stop the brick back from the opening to allow for a Brick Mold to cover the window or door nailing flange. This is so you can you can remove it to remove/replace the windows. In the settings for the Ext-int Wall Details in both the window & door tool, it only allows you to splay this jamb/wall edge. This would be an easy place to have the setting to hold the brick back and a user defined distance. I could easily add the brick mold trim myself. I have mad a door & window symbol with the brick mold attached to it but this does not work well especially for the interior side, it make the opening in the wall to the exterior width of the brick mold. Am I the only person using brick mold around doors & windows in a brick veneer building?
  7. For some reason in VW2022 after selecting my 2D symbol from the Resource Browser all I see is a cross hair mouse curser until I click in the drawing area. This make is hard to put windows & doors into walls. IS there a setting for this or do I now need a more powerful graphics card for VW2022. I'm also getting a black screen on occasion & then back to original screen. I have all drivers up to date. Seems to be working now for some reason.
  8. Yes, you can export to a 3DS file & then when opening in SketchUp you will have to try the import 3D options to get the objects with out the diagonal facet on each face. You have to have both programs & in VW make a 3D square or rectangle & a sphere then export them & practice opening in SKU to get the best import options. Then you can do the reverse with same trials of export options & import options.
  9. Export to a 3d file, practice with the different options in export & importing into SketchUp, I was finally able to open in SKU with having the diagonal facet lines but right now do not remember the exact setting or if was in the export or the import. Just lots of trials & errors. Hope that helps some
  10. Every day I'm finding more crazy things happening with this version of VW. Some days some things work like they are suppose to, then like today when I add a hatch & want to give it a fill color it is not visible until I use the scroll wheel on my mouse to zoom in & out. Then new color fill is only visible in wireframe 2D Plan when zooming in & out unless I use Open GL. I have not seen this issue before. Anybody else having this problem? My VW Preferences Display is set to Good Performance & Compatility See short video of this happening attached - I changed the brick grey hatch to green & added a white fill to the sand hatch with in the basin After switching the display setting to Best Performance it is working like it should. 20210408_084805.mp4
  11. Following up with another VW crash when opening a file that I had open earlier this morning. It is a file of people symbols that I copy past from. I open it & copy from it many times before with no problems like this morning. I'm going to see if I have time to create a new user profile. Juan, you mention other are having issues after upgrading to windows 10, I did this a long time ago, and have had no crashing issues until recently. But do have many other issues; like when using the arch, polyline, & polygon tools, I can not change any attributes until I click off & then back on to the object. The arch tool, sometime it can only be drawn in one direction, other times I can draw them either direction. The Navigation Palette, I can not scroll thru my classes, layers, or sheet layers until I adjust it size, then it will allow me to scroll down to see all of the classes, layers, & sheet layers. I've had problems with my default text changing to some system font, but this has not happened for a while. Every day is a learning experience on how VW is going to act for me. This is why each morning I save the file I'm working on to a new date so if a crash I can always go back to yesterdays file & continue. Is VW more stable on a mac?
  12. I'll try that when I get the chance, very busy at the moment. FYI, about 2 weeks ago I did a complete re-install of VW, I even removed every VW & Nemetschek item from the registry, rebooted, then new install, & re built my user folder. Was having many little issues, it helped some, but past few days it is becoming unstable. I'll reply to this thread when I get the change to make a new user profile. Thanks!
  13. Hey Juan, this morning it crashed when trying to open vectorworks, it is really becoming unstable. VW User Log.txt
  14. Hey Juan, it just crashed again when trying to open a 18,230 kb file from the files folder, this time the dialog box that said VW not responding, below that it showed a number of steps in trying to open & then crashed. Attached is the latest crash reports. Thanks! VW User Log Sent.txt VW User Log.txt
  15. Sorry Juan, I should have included them. See attached. Thanks! VW User Log Sent.txt VW User Log.txt
  16. VW SP3.1 is crashing on my when trying to open files from file folder & when opening from Recent Files. This has happened 3 times since down loading the latest service pack. Is anybody else having these crashing?
  17. For some reason after installing the SP3 all of my title block PDF page objects on a design layer will not view port on to a sheet layer like I have always done. When I draw a rectangle around the PDF page object & try to create a view port it gives me this error message "This command only works on layer links that are not locked" I have never locked any layer, nowhere does it show my anything is locked. The PDF image is not a link, it is a PDF I imported on to a design layer. What is locked? the design layer? The PDF image? or the sheet layer I'm trying to sent the view port too? I can not unlock the PDF image or the design layer. Totally bizarre!!!! This is happening in different files, when ever I try to make a Viewport I get the same error message. I just opened a new blank file, drew a rectangle around it & tried to make a view port & get the same error message. Something is not right! Am I missing a new setting? The new blank file is attached Layer Link file problems.vwx And YES I always use the Architect Workspace & this command is only in the Fundamentals, great! Dag, I believe I just found the problem I was using Convert To Viewport instead of Create Viewport, I had added to command to my Object Right Mouse Click & added the wrong one! Thanks for all of your help!
  18. Wow, none of these Hatch Folders contain any hatches. After further investigation into the original file the conflict has something to do with the Resource folder having the same name as a class definition & the file I am pasting the object into did not have the Resource folder Hatches. It was an older template file of a stage that was created some time ago. Sorry, I thought both files started from same Template file & when I do the same copy & paste into a second file from same template it works fine, no issues. I've never seen this before though & of course it happens when your in a rush doing quick changes to a file. This does tell me that I need to update all of my stage template files to all have the same folders & hatches in the resource folders. Thanks for questioning me to help me think of checking into the files further
  19. Tom, your close, I have 2 files open, both created from the same template, so they both have the same resource folder :Hatches", with the same typical hatches I mostly use. I was copying an object with the brick shaded hatch from one file to the other & every time I pasted it into the other file it kept asking me to rename the "Hatch" folder. It was the same hatch in the same resource folder with no options. Hope that explains it better.
  20. I have 2 files open, both started from same template with the same hatches in a Hatch folder. While trying to do a quick revision and copying object with a hatch from one file to another it kept forcing me to rename the Hatch folder. Why is it doing this? I was copying & pasting a few objects, all with the exact same Hatch from the same folder, now in one file I have many Hatch Folders, this is insane. I thought by grouping all of my typical Hatches into a Folder was being organized, but if this is what happens I'm going to remove all folders. What am I doing wrong to make this happen?
  21. Yes markdd, they are in the same order as my Basic Tool Pallet but I have a lot of similar tools grouped together, so they look different in the Smart tool pallet display. I guess it is getting use to the different layout. I find my self staring at it a lot longer to find the tool I'm looking for then just moving the curser to the basic tool pallet which if used for years I do not even have to think where they are & with keyboard short cut keys it will take a while to get use to them all showing in the new smart pop up display. But thanks for bringing this to my attention that they are the same
  22. Is it possible to re-arrange the icons in the tool pallet so it is in the order of my Basic Tool Pallet ? I find it taking longer to find the tool I want because I'm use to the arrangement I have been using for years. So for now with short cut keys & being use to my tool pallet arrangements it is quicker not using this new feature unless I'm going for a tool I have just been using.
  23. This is fixed in version 2021 SP1, but then there are other new issues I have found
  24. Yes Andy, it was a learning opportunity, for now I am switching back to 2020 so I can have control on the labels & Detail Callouts. The new smart linked labels & callout are of no use to me in my business. All of my finished released drawings are exported as individual PDF's sheets. Being able to change a detail callout to a section callout on the fly is much faster. Yes the ghost image stays after closing & reopening & it appears in all new & existing design layers & view ports, lucky it does not print. But from now on it will be VW202o for my on this production & I'll deal with the major issue of editing a wall with door & window symbols inserted in it.
  25. Thanks to VW & these new smart labels I now have an ghost image of one on every one of my new & existing sheet layers that I can not delete. The red icon does not need to be seen, the object info pallet shows if it is linked or not. It has no use for me! I tried to edit one smart label with out realizing it changed al of them thru out a 30 sheet set of drawings, ARG !!!!!!!!!! Oh, I love this, I tried to cover this ghost image with a rectangle white fill & no lines & it stays on top no matter what
