  1. It seems that so many tools have a preview option. Is it possible to get one to see what an area might look like before committing to the settings?
  2. The past couple of days I've noticed that I can't select a polyline object after I've rotated the view to simplify drawing. The interactive scaling mode is unrestricted. Is it operator error? Any tips are welcome!
  3. I've been using 2018 for some time now and am frustrated with the inability to change the class assigned to the North arrow. It defaults to Notes-Sheet. No matter how many times I try changing it to my own desired class or editing the class, I can not get rid of the blue fill. I can't even override the class settings in the attribute palette. What the heck am I doing wrong? (I just discovered that it is blue in some of the arrow configurations. I happen to like Config 10 though. Yes I can make my own symbol & probably will.)
  4. It used to be that I could populate the plant definition records into a new plant using the “Use Currently Selected Record”. What’s happening now is that I find a plant that matches what I want to use and run that command. None of the plant records fill into the plant style and the placeholders are deleted. Thoughts? Is this a bug?

    Fences with gates needed

    I discovered that if you change the format to curtain wall, the header goes away. I also learned how to adjust the width of the wall to quite thin and added a texture of perforated metal to both sides of the wall to create a wire mesh deer fence. It’s kind of cool!

    Fences with gates needed

    Has anyone created a workaround to insert a gate into a fence? I see that it's a wish list item but don't know if it's been acted upon yet.
  7. I've been learning more about the landscape area tool lately and appreciate the randomization options. BUT - Is it just me or are the plants moving themselves out of the area drawn? Viewing the object in 2D is not a problem, it's only when I switch to 3D that this happens. The location of these errors changes every time I modify either percentage of randomization or to randomize at all. Bug?
  8. While learning more about the Title Block Plug in style (read this as fighting with it), I tried adding a new drawing border to a brand new file. No such luck as the Tool set palette location showed the red X in place of the normal icon & an ominous message popped up. I've restarted both my MacBook Pro (High Sierra) & Vectorworks 2018/SP1. Anyone else had this happen? I've submitted a request to the Tech Support group, but haven't heard back yet today.

    VW 2018 Crashing

    I've had problems when tracing over large PDFs. I ran the SP1 & it's been ok so far. I'm also running on a MacBook Pro, though not a new one.
  10. Is it possible to create a Dimension style where the data for the line sits right on the line instead of using the default offset of 6? My office uses the 0 offset & it takes time to adjust them. Yes, I can select similar and run the adjustment, but I'm just wondering if it can be done at creation. Thank you!
  11. Hardscape area tags have the option to be None, Left, Right, or Float. I'd like to be able to o the same with Landscape Tags as well.
  12. Since we can toggle through tool use options with the U key, can we include the Plants? Double clicking on a plant symbol brings up a 4 option menu. It would be more convenient to allow a keyboard toggle instead of moving my mouse up to select between 2D/3D/definition/path.
  13. A potential client provided an existing Realtime Landscape Architect file with the hope of being able to use it in a new project. I'm not familiar with this software. The standard import converters don't recognize it. Can they export it as a DXF/DWG file and send that or am I stuck with tracing over a PDF? Thanks...

    Panning a pdf underlay

    I stumbled upon a way to trace PDFs a while back. I was using VW2014 at the time. If I switched from Top/Plan to Top, I could see the PDF to trace an existing plat file. So happy with that!
  15. I tested the schedule comments & works in the plants placed with the Place Plant tool. If I add them into a Landscape area, won't that pull them from the resource manager and then impact the same plant type definition fields used elsewhere in the document?
