    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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. it depends which version of Vectorworks you are using. Normally there is an option to add layers and other criteria from pull down menus.
  6. 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

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    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.

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    so the new Mac Mini has been released, I have been waiting for this quite a while, obviously it will come with Mojave. Is there a timeline for VW to be compatible with the new OS. Alternatively, has anyone (I know nobody has an answer to that today) successfully downgraded new Mac mini to High Sierra?

    Record formats

    this is something I have been trying to get done to avoid having two independent documents (drawings and cur sheet specs). So far the only way to accomplish that is to have all the cut sheets uploaded to to your website project folder and then create web link column in your schedule. The cut sheets have to be individual files in subfolders and so on, not a single book, so the sis not ideal. However, the good thing is that if you have cur sheets online than you use "link" tool to connect not only schedules but also the items on the plans to the cut sheets.

    iMac advice for 2019

    also., I would recommend the best graphic card you can get on iMac, I have been using iMacs and Mac minis (which is essentially the same thing) and I always run into graphics card issue, while the processors and ram are fine the graphic card is the one that limited Mac useful life span.

    I am trying to change one of the space tools settings: I want to change or eliminate Space Tool Area suffix - sf. ft., I would like it to be just SF in capitals. Anyone knows where is the setting for it?

    I have looked around at all the options and still cannot figure out whether it possible to separate tool set from tool sets: I would like to have more than one subset displayed simultaneously. For instance I use

    Sheet layer Drawing Coordination

    yes, this has been a problem and I don't know exactly why this is not fixed as the path for drawing names etc works so why wouldn't it work for the sheet number? My work around it is via drawing list, I managed to make it feed the title block sheet numbers. It is easier to change the numbers in worksheet but then you still need to double click each title block to actuate the change. It seems like the title block needs another command similar to the worksheet - "recalculate all title blocks".
