  1. I am trying to do a simple thing: have space tool elements different attributes via classes. Class assignment is working fine, however, it seems like pen and fill cannot have different attributes, namely, I am trying to have fill @ 5% and label @ 100% opacity - space sits on top of everything else with label being 100% sharp and area fill color coded but showing furniture etc behind. Is it just me or is the label tool working that way.

    stair tool

    so I managed to get it done with legacy custom stair tool. I think there should be a check box "override stair tool logic"

    stair tool

    I have been trying to configure rather simple stair. In 2018 it nearly impossible, but in 2019 I am getting close. My main issue is that I am getting error messages (two treads are partially melted..., etc) that doesn't explain what is wrong and it does not make sense geometrically. So I am wondering if anybody knows which settings are causing this. Also, I arrived at this configuration by trial and error changing different values till I almost got what I wanted. Also, it is not possible to have nosing in this stair, I unlocked overall stair dim . Attached is line drawing of the stair and above is VW stair which has one offset set at 2" and it cannot get smaller.

  5. there is a line type edit in resources, is there a way to edit line thickness in a similar way to removing classes: remove unwanted thicknesses and make them conform to whatever new standards I want. I know I can do it by custom selection tool but its time consuming and not as instant as removing classes.

    Strange Cones:

    I think these are lights and cameras, go to light and views palette and make them invisible

    stair tool

    the stair tool doesn't allow for stair that is composed of two raisers and one tread, is this right??? or is there a trick?

    Wacom tablet?

    I have been using small intuos Touch (very useful for scrolling and zooming), and various versions of Wacom tablet before Intuos. Small works fine for me, and yes its just the right size relative to the natural movement of hand, similar to small sketching writing.
  9. take a look at this, this is a schedule of different light fixtures on a number of floors, is this what you are trying to do?
  10. Boh, you are right, I have misunderstood your question, may be if you . What I understood is that let's say you have 6 layers and 3 different types of seating spread across all layers. You want to have box in a spreadsheet showing just type 1 seating on layers 1,2,3, that will be scenario where both chair type and layer will have to be present in order to register in the box. But I suspect you might have something else in mind.
  11. it depends which version of Vectorworks you are using. Normally there is an option to add layers and other criteria from pull down menus.
  12. select whatever cells you want then go to format cell and under "number" you can force it to no fractions

    palette position

    I am saving palette position and yet every time I start VW the top plate gets squished, and every time its different, just wondering if any body has an idea why this is happening. I am enclosing saved position and then 2 examples after quitting VW

    thanks for the info about Sierra, I have been using Mac minis in my office for years now, one I have now is from 2012 and works fine for me, however, I wouldn't mind speeding up rendering times. I use it as a portable device: I have screens in my office and at home and I bring my mini with me hence my questions about it. But I see the point about graphics, usually it is the most limiting part which rendered all my old iMacs unusable at certain point.
