  1. Hi, I'm trying to mirror seating sections created using the event tool. Whenever I do this, the seats are duplicated, but not mirrored. I've attached a couple of screen shots. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

    Windows GPU-1 Not Working

    Yes, I already had that. Up until the 1909 update I used exactly the method you are describing, and it worked. After 1909, even if you tell it to use the GPU it does not. You have to tell it in Windows settings/Display/Graphic settings.

    Windows GPU-1 Not Working

    Previously I used that method, but it no longer works on two of my machines running 1909. I tried to run Cinebench but my Geforce GPU didn't show up, I used your method and it still didn't appear. I then used the new method and the GPU was there.

    Windows GPU-1 Not Working

    This happened with VW 2020 and Windows 1909, not sure about 2019. It seems to be the "upgrade" to 1909 that does wacky things to the driver.

    Windows GPU-1 Not Working

    Since upgrading to Windows 1909 I have had issues with my dGPU not working in Vectorworks. This has happened to two different laptops and in both instances the Nvidia dGPU would not turn on, and the on board GPU was doing all of the work. I reinstalled the Driver, and used the Nvidia control panel to set the High Performance Graphic card to be used always. It still wouldn't work. I then found this article: https://pureinfotech.com/set-gpu-app-windows-10/ Windows has changed how you set which GPU to use in which app, and it never seems to turn on dGPU unless you force it. Thought that I would share just in case any of you hit the same issue. The method on https://pureinfotech.com/set-gpu-app-windows-10/ Fixes the issue.

    Auto Hide Docked Palettes?

    Hi, Is there a way to Auto Hide Docked Palettes in VW2018 for Windows? I use Auto Hide on my palettes that are not docked, but it would be great if they could be docked to the side and neat. Any advice gratefully received. Steve

    Lighting Symbol Greyed Out

    Hi, I've stripped everything else out of the file and attached below. Thanks for looking at this! Ballroom_V11_-_Copy.vwx

    Lighting Symbol Greyed Out

    Update. I deleted the layer and removed all instances of the fixtures and Records in the Resource browser. I then imported the fixture from the library onto a different layer and still had the problem.

    Lighting Symbol Greyed Out

    Hi If I edit the 2D component of the fixture it is made up of 3 classes, but these all have standard visibilities. Interestingly, if I cut and paste into a new document I don't have the problem...

    Thanks for taking the time to get back to me. Classes and Layers are set to Show/Snap others The Class is active The Layer is active The Class and Layers are set to visible.

    Lighting Symbol Greyed Out

    Hi, This is probably a stupid question, but does anyone know why my Lighting symbols are appearing greyed out? If I zoom or move the page, the symbols look normal, but a few seconds later they revert to grey. I'm on the correct layer, and the symbols are selectable. I've attached two pictures, one is the normal greyed out version and the other is whilst moving. Any help would be gratefully received.

    Symbol Crashes Vectorworks Spotlight

    Hi Rob, Any thoughts on what it could be? I changed the fixture type but the crash still occurred. I guess there must be something in the data attached to that fixture, or the record? I've got a plan with 30 of these on that I really don't want to reenter all of the data for. Any thoughts or suggestions would be gratefully received.
