    Data Entry didja know

    In the PIO box, entering text in the Leader or Trailer fields of a dimension object is not actually entered if the next thing one clicks on is the 'Show Dim Value' checkbox. Hitting Enter, Return, Tab, clicking anywhere else (afaik) accepts the entered text, but not on the checkbox. Why?

    Multi-processor for v10?

    Is VW10 or RW10 designed for multiple processors?

    Tape measure tool

    I certainly hope that your input-display has operations have been synchronized in v10... It appears, though, that NNA aimed more at the architects designing the buildings (I'm okay with that) but really not as much to the draftspeople who have to do the other 90% of the documents. I'm eager to test this...

    Fixes in version 10?

    ...but that doesn't answer the first question. No, I doubt there is a complete bugfix list, though there should be a standard release fix list that covers the main and the obscure bugs but not the annoying time-killing ones.

    1. Make a constrained dim. Keep it selected. 2. Type something in the Leader field. Do not hit enter. 3. Click on the checkbox. Now, tell me: does the text that you entered, appear on screen? Does it even remain in the field?

    Data Entry didja know

    yes, I know what the fields and boxes are FOR. With that in mind, please re-read my post. After typing in text to either field, one must do something to make it appear in the dimension. One can hit Enter, Return, or Tab, or one can click anywhere in the drawing, or somewhere on a toolbar. However, if one clicks on the checkbox, the entered data is NOT recognized. There is no run-through of an idle user input loop -- which updates the display, and which would explain the twitchy tape measure tool -- before the checkbox's functions are called.

    Previous View

    Is there a way I can assign a key combination to the 'previous view' function otherwise accessed by the bottom left arrow button at the end of the scroll bar? 9.5.2OSX.

    I'm curious, what are you doing with RW

    hmmm... http://ca.photos.yahoo.com/bc/titaniumsamurai/vwp?.dir=/render&.dnm=John+A.+McDougall.jpg&.src=ph&.view=t&.hires=t

    dunno if that works, but... This small 800x400 loses a LOT of detail. The full 2880x720dpi printout was printed at 50cm wide, so you can see the ornate tops of the newel posts in the stairway.

    Polygon vs. Polyline

    Is there a way to force a PIO to draw a polyLINE instead of a polyGON?

    Polygon vs. Polyline

    Here's a snippet: this_path_handle:=GetCustomObjectPath(this_object_handle); if( (this_path_handle<>NIL) AND (GetVertNum(this_path_handle)>1) ) then begin { ------------------------------------------------------- } { -----------begin the core drawing section-------------- } { ------------------------------------------------------- } NumberOfVertices:=GetVertNum(this_path_handle); GetPolyPt(this_path_handle,1,x_prev,y_prev); GetPolyPt(this_path_handle,2,x2,y2); x1:=x_prev; y1:=y_prev; FillPat(0); { blank } PenSize(15); PenPat(-8); { standard: dash with two dots } PenBack(line_colourval,line_colourval,line_colourval); {penfore} OpenPoly; { sets poly mode to 'open' } BeginPoly; for VertexNow := 1 to NumberOfVertices DO begin {GetPolylineVertex(this_path_handle, VertexNow, x_current, y_current,Vtype,Vradius);} GetPolyPt(this_path_handle,VertexNow,x_current,y_current); AddPoint(x_current,y_current); end; { of vertex loop } EndPoly; { finish the polyline and draw it } ---------------------------------- I can draw a 3-point poly manually while creating the PIO, but cannot delete the extraneous 3rd point using the reshape tool.I could try adding code to add segments to the poly, then delete them, as has been suggested. Better yet, I should make the two automatically-drawn end 'legs' part of the poly; they are currently just separate lines.

    I have one pretty spankin' rendering I did, but I'd need a host site to post it, right?

    Polygon vs. Polyline

    I need the ability to create single-segment polylines (new feature to v9, AFAIK) within a path-type PIO.

    Previous View

    As you can tell by the overcooked pie, I tend to be absent-minded. It turns out that I had already found the 'previous view' command, AND had already assigned a shortctut to it. Glad to have sparked a friendly discussion about how Matt wastes valuable time here...

    PIO trivia

    Didja know that PIO code is not run at load-up? Objects are not re-executed at that time; they are just drawn as the elements which comprise the object.

    Missing some keyboard shortcuts

    Some combinations are reserved for use by the OS, but the ws editor does allow for overriding.

    does it work?

    Renderworks palette?

    Tools and menu items are handled separately, and VectorScript doesn't appear to have render-related commands -- meaning you couldn't make up a plug-in tool.

    1. Find someone whose revcloud works under OSX. 2. Both you and that person shut down VW. 3. 'Connect to Server...' to that person's machine. 4. Look in YOUR VW plug-ins folder, and delete the Revison Cloud Tool.vst file. Look in the OTHER person's plug-ins folder, and copy it to your plugins folder. Done.

    Dimension Demensia

    Here's what I did, and it seems to have worked.I exited VW, toasted the .vst, RE-copied from the SAME person from whom I had to get the plugin file in the first place (don't know why I didn't have it), restarted VW, edited the wspace to delete the cloud in my toolbar, recopied the source (left) cloud tool to the toolbar, and presto.Previous to that, I had checked file properties of mine and those of the file that was working on other machines: identical AFAIK. I don't know whether or not the other person had VW open, or a drawing open, during either the first time I did it a month ago, or just recently, but maybe shut down VW on both ends.Copy from someone who is working. VW952OSX.1.5iMacG3 blue slotload I'm interested in knowing if this helps Pedro or suzanne...

    Shift+Click .. How many people ..

    Never:OS 9.1 9.2 X.1-X.1.5VW9.0.1, 9.5.0b5&7, 9.5.1, 9.5.2iMac (blue) G3 ...unless you don't hold your mouse still long enough when selecting the second object.

    Does your dimstyle have 'fixed witness length' turned on? Is it specific to a particular file, do old files still work? P.S.Did you ever fix your revcloud? Mine still won't work, even in OS9 bootup.

    MacOS X 10.2 Causes VectorWorks to Fail

    ... and discover that 'snoody' should have been 'snooty'? Dang that writing backwards... what is this emoticon supposed to be? Is anyone who has the problem -- random or consistent -- NOT working on a network, regardless of whether or not the file being worked upon is on a remote drive?i.e. Does jumping off the network -- including pulling the CAT-5 or whatever -- help?

    What common properties do the lines have?

    MacOS X 10.2 Causes VectorWorks to Fail

    I'm getting the impression that VW keeps the file's handle open. This explains corruption without saving (also v9 wref corruption if a v8 dwg is opened during the same time). Am I correct? If so, why in the world would you do this? If the program crashes, it cannot correctly close the file handle. This is like OS9 giving total control. McUsers know what this does.
