  1. Now you're talking SERIOUS productivity! fjjRA
  2. Thanks, I feel sort of stupid for asking. fjjRA
  3. Does VWA automatically assign lineweights to objects, if so, can these be changed on the fly without screwing things up?
  4. Last night I imported a small floor plan from MiniCAd into VWA... all of the arcs representing door swings, electrical wiring, etc.. printed with the arcs filled back to the radius points, like several pieces of pie. These wedges were not visible on screen but printed. Upon selecting a sample arc I noticed that VW had assigned a solid fill where MC had "none". I was able to get rid of the wedges by selecting each one and changing the background to none, a disturbing process. Has anyone else noticed this or can recommend a method to avoid this condition. TIA, fjjRA
  5. Kevin, Got around to experimenting with the markers and object info palette... everything works just as you described and all choices are there. Thanks for your help, fjjRA
  6. I'm curious, Can't you open the file from within 8.5 (file-open-etc..)? fjjRA
  7. Kevin, Thanks, I'll give it a try. fjjRA
  8. Thanks Mark, Installation was a smap and worked in accordance with the manual. I experimented with bringing a MC7 drawing into VW, translation was flawless. fjjRA
  9. I have noticed that the section marker in Architect is not the same as the one in VW, nor does it resemble the picture on the palette..(circle with a small filled point, instead of a filled triangle) is this really the case or am I missing a marker. I also prefer the way VW works in placing the markers to Architect, can VW's pull-down menu be brought into Architect with the workspace editor? fjjRA
  10. I have upgraded to VectorWorks and Architect. My question is this, where, exactly, in the VectorWorks folder does "Architect" need to be put, "Workspaces", "Plugins",or what? My initial installation did not list Architect as available under workspaces. There is also a folder labeled "Workspaces" within the Workspace folder. Need a little advise here. Mac System. fjjRA
