  1. its a bug, VW knows about it and most likely will be fixed in next SP, this has been brought up a while ago, I think it happens only on windows.
  2. click on "name" in publish window - you can control the order of pages there
  3. if you don't have 2018 you can use attached space object.vwx
  4. Something happened with graphic attributes in space tool. It seems impossible to have a label 100% opaque and 2D boundary in less than 100% opacity. This functionality was working in VW2018 but 2019 and 2020 has rearranged info and settings boxes and it is no longer possible. Its kind of indispensable when dong planing and color coding different uses etc.
  5. you are right, it's a bug, I will report it to the tech. I formatted my space tool/object in VW2018, just checked and it works in 2018, then you can reuse the same space object in 2019 or 2020 but when formatting it in settings it reverts to opaque.
  6. yes, highlight the space object, then in the info box click on settings, then navigate to graphic attributes.
  7. Is this 2020 native or from previous versions of VW? Just wondering if something is "lost in translation".
  8. you can activate "by name" order by clicking the "name" header, you should see little arrow on the right hand side of the header

    I have a file which has been in use since 2019, it has a bout 110 pages (sheets) and for some reason I cannot print past the page #58. This applies to published pdf set, trying to print directly from VW, same with the same file from 2019. I replaced the printer driver, tried different printer too. I tried printing via apple print, preview and in all cases the print appears to be spooling to the printer and then disappears. Eventually I determined that it is the pdf part of the page that's the cause. Whether in sheet layer or in viewport it makes no difference, I have made a new pdf (screen grab) and it still doesn't work.
  10. I am sure someone asked about it before, is there a way to have VW not display all available fonts? On OSX is there a way to limit the list or divide it into "user" fonts and general fonts? Or may be convert the last used fonts (at the beginning of the list) to favorite fonts?
  11. actually dark mode would work just fine in reverse (white on black background), polygon double line looks like a single thick line, I just hired 2 new people, worked on 2019 and now they are getting confused
  12. I have been working in "dark mode" for a few weeks now and I wish I could go back to 2019.
  13. on new MacBook Pro testing 2020 on Mojave. So far I have not any problems so many people reported, zero. Today though I have run into a strange problem: Upon opening 2019 file I noticed stair data font defaulted to ARIAL, tried to change no effect, new blank file in 2020 with new stair has the same problem. Does anybody has this issue?
  14. this is a good point, shading and 3d like graphic elaborations do not help. The screen resolution, graphic cards etc all get significantly better, I would recommend just sharpening up old icons and use color and fill sparingly and only when necessary. I am on Mac and I have been using Dark Mode for 2019, for 2020 there is no way I can use Dark Mode, to hard to look at and the White Mode looks just clunky, though here and there some icons are a bit better.
