  1. Disk permissions have been fixed, Logitech's latest driver has been installed. A fellow user has reported the following. The right-click functionality of the mouse becomes disabled in VW only, after several usages. It still works in Finder and other applications, and is restored after some manual cmd-C and cmd-V commands, but restored for only 4 or 5 usages before it craps out again. thoughts?
  2. I've found this to be a fix 95% of the time, but beware of corrupted symbols, too. C&P won't fix those.
  3. Are your VW elements at all editable in C4D? Can you selectively make certain parts of your import non-dynamic (like breaking a plug-in in VW)?
  4. Did you check to see if the plugins for those items in 8.5 were also in the 9.5's plug-ins folder?
  5. But if the 2D portion of the script is massive, that's a huge amount of code parsed for naught when in a 3D view. There MUST be a way to check IfPlanView();... Thanks anyway.
  6. Make them a group, edit the group, then 'bring to front' each item. Only a workaround, but it does what I think you are looking to do.
  7. Thanks a million for the quick reply. Two issues I still have though, are: 1) I don't want VW to go through the hassle of calculating 2D elements if they don't get drawn anyway. I separate the 2D and 3D code so that only the relevant code is executed. How do I determine whether or not I'm in Plan view? 2) How do I create extrudes that are extruded from different directions?
  8. OSX.2.3 Print Centre goes through normal print job messages. Plotter says 'Processing', but finishes with no output.
  9. Okay, I'm stumped. May NNA mods forgive my stealing this opportunity for querying fellow users, but... Are there any users who have gotten a HP DJ500PS to work under OSX.2.x? Both Gimp and GhostScript are installed. I can print from an OSX workstation to an OS9 host, but not directly from an OSX machine to the plotter. The 500PS -- connected via USB -- appears in the list as it should. Unfortunately, nothing comes out of the plotter, regardless of application. I've tried setting up the plotter from both the Print Centre and the ESP CUPS printer admin centre. The admin centre does not show the 800; the closest are the 450, the 455, the 700, and the 750C (I've tried them with no success). Under Print Centre, I've tried selecting the 800PS3 in Library/Printers/PPDs/Resources/en.lproj but to no avail. What am I missing? Any help would be appreciated to: dclarke'at'aciarchitecture'dot'com.
  10. I'm guessing that I set the view to a 2D view, draw the 2D version, then set the view to a 3D view and proceed with the 3D elements, right? When executing the PIO, would VW be smart enough to show only the 3D stuff in a 3D view and only the 2D stuff in plan view? For moving around in the 3D symbol, I use SetView, I suppose?
  11. Part of the reason it works so well in AutoCAD is because of the pickbox. I HATED VW's attempt at an extend tool, yet loved AC's version. Without a pickbox, it's just frustrating.
  12. Please don't tell me that this is actually an unkown... I thought that the trim tool was designed to work on only certain things. I've noticed for half a year that certain things (e.g. polygons) can't be trimmed, but can be split. VW9.5.3
  13. IIRC, .dxf does not support fills. R14+ supports a 'solid' hatch, but keeps that a secret, so you'll have to live with the fact that all fills are lost in translation.
  14. KT: He's referring to the menu text and titlebar text, I believe. Odd, though, since I've never been able to do an application specific font setting like that. System-wide, sure (Control Panel -> Display -> Appearance), so what version of Windows are you using? Please say XP.
  15. Nah, I've had three different behaviors with each. I feel your pain, Peter. Like Alberta weather, I just wait a while and it changes after a while. I don't know about OS9, but OSX.1.x has the problem, mainly with VW9.5.2. I just installed X.2.x, so we'll see if it's gotten any better, esp. since I'm now using VW9.5.3. Peter: third behavior is this: I can apply ONE formatting item to some text. Bold, italic, underline, but not bolded italic or underlined italic or bold underline, etc.
  16. Currently the linetype doesn't show on a NURBS curve. It would be handy if that feature was maintained with a NURBS curve just as it is with a polyline.
  17. I'm able to force the fill colours and styles, and the line styles and line weights, but NOT the line colour. Why?
  18. If you're on a Mac, did you try changing the mem alloc for VW to see if that would get you any further? Otherwise, it's like trying to tinker with memory and interrupts while writing in Java (i.e. your hands are tied).
  19. Are you sure that you're changing the correct field instead of the 'preview object size' parameter?
  20. The component is Authoring Tools.
  21. Plot three or more points, use cubic spline smoothing, and you'll get a cubic semi-parabola. Try a NURBS curve using known values on your parabolic curve. The NURBS should do a mathematically accurate job of connect-the-dots, provided that you give it some dots to follow.
  22. As time goes on, bugs are fixed. When enough are fixed to warrant a new release, NNA starts selling 10.1 or 10.5 or whatever, just as they did for VW9.0 to VW9.1.
  23. Under Classic, with QT6 installed, the image still works fine. Ergo, the Export Image doesn't work properly from OSX.2.2. I'll have to check an older machine with OSX.1.x to see if it had the same problem.
  24. Okay, it still works in Classic, so it's either OSX.2.2 or QT6.0.2. I'll update Classic's QuickTime and check if that breaks it. Anyone else having this trouble?
