    Leader Line Tool

    If I open a new file it will do it only if I change the callout leader type to something other than default, which sucks because I hate the default and it is not our office standard. I've done the quit/restart and system restart many times. I quit out of vector works everyday when I leave. I shut down completely every couple of weeks. Question, is there another way to draw a leader line without text other than the leader line tool? Thanks, Peter!

    Leader Line Tool

    Peter, wouldn't that also affect the callout tool leader as well? The default arrow head is set to the program default. It's never been changed in this file. Thanks!

    Leader Line Tool

    When I click the leader line tool and place it in a drawing it has no arrow head. It appears as just a line. I've run into this problem before early on a project and just copied everything into a new drawing, which seemed to work, but I am way too far into the file to do that. Can anyone help? NO matter what arrow head type I choose, nothing happens. Thanks.

    Three-column sash with different ratio of muntins

    You would think this fairly easy within the Custom Window dialog. Perhaps the VW boys can put this in 2015. Another option that I see is to create the 3 windows separately (center window without jamb) and create a new symbol saved to your library.

    Revit IFC Import

    Has anyone had experience importing IFC format files exported from Revit? I have a large project for a university and our firm is partnered with another firm for the architectural development. We'll also be sharing models with the contractor at some point as well. Any help/guidance is always appreciated! Thanks!

    VW2008 text issues

    I have VW2008 Architect and my leader notes are funky. The leader line attaches either at the center of the text box or, when I select Top it attaches to the top of the text rather than the center of the first line. Can anyone help me out here? It's incredibly annoying. Thanks.

    my note text has a gray box

    Taoist, I tried that multiple times, multiple colors. I even tried it on other classes with no set attributes. nothing has worked. is there a way to copy the file content to a new drawing and saveas? As with auto cad? Thanks for your help.

    3D Hatch in Hidden Line

    This tool just saved my friggin life! I don't know about previous versions, but in 2013Architect you can extract a 3D face, assign a hatch and it will render in hidden line. SO stoked! J.

    Fit walls to object

    In my case, what worked was to move the walls from the attic layer to the floor layer and fit to roof. then move walls back to attic layer and adjust top and base offsets. Vincent, manually adjusting wall tops would take forever and so far I've not been able to accurately match it with the bottom of the roof anyway. There always seem to be little gaps no matter what.

    Roof - gable dormers

    Ok. This is weird. If I move the wall object from the Attic Layer to the Floor Layer Fit to Roof works fine. I move it back, no go. WTF?? J.

    Roof - gable dormers

    That didn't work. I've actually never been able to get walls to fit to roof if they are on the roof layer.

    Fit walls to object

    I'm having the same problem today. The tool does seem to have a bit of an attitude as this is an intermittent problem I've had since the beginning. In my current case, I have a floor plan, attic plan and roof plan. I have walls on the attic plan that I need to extend to meet the gable end in order to close the space and it simply won't work. I even deleted and recreated the walls on the attic layer and still no go. I'm ready to pull my hair our. The only thing I can think of is that the bearing of the roof and the level of the attic are the same elevation and this may be causing the hiccup. But this has never happened before and other walls have fit to roof with the same parameters. Anyone have additional thoughts? J.

    Roof - gable dormers

    Peter, Barkest, thanks! It seems that is what I did wrong - Edit Mode. Will give it a shot once I finish all the other updates and let you know. Now I'm having issues with walls not fitting to the roof. I'm ready for this week to be over! J.
