    Ok the setting is in the pen settings where you can adjust the background colour and the pen widths. There are colour palletes standard... Vectorworks colours and if you expand this area there are rgb and cmyk options....i am not in front of my computer so I hope this will at least point you in the right direction

    bending an object with an applied decal

    i was hoping the decal would follow the shape of the deform of the pyramid i was hoping the decal would follow the shape of the taper but that may be asking too much..... maybe it just won't as its a piece of artwork.......but the curve will certainly be good to have..... wonder if there could be some distort handles that you could apply to the decal whilst on the shape as you can do in photoshop?
  10. just been testing a few things I use a lot of curved fascias as I am an exhibition designer and always have a problem applying a decal, to the right position when i use the attribute mapping tool it can distort the decal image....so I have applied the decal to a flat wall and then used the distort to tool to curve the wall and it seems to work fine......it keeps the decal at the same size as when applied..... I have tried it on other deform tools but only seems to work with the bend solid mode.......hope it would work on the deform shapes but it doesn't seem to deform the decal to the deformed shape......this is not a criticism just my findings ......maybe this should have been in the rendering section of the forum test.vwx

    Grain direction, Renderworks texture

    Sometimes it's not a bad move to extract a surface it my be on the other side you may want another texture as the applied texture without the extract will Indeed show on the other side.....of the object which in itself is a pain..... But I used to use Artlantis and that has the same problem..... but does have an interactive display to rotate textures as you require..... Maybe vectorworks needs a separate module for the rendering side to allow ease of applying textures and decals..... Only a thought and not a criticism.....

    Rendering isues.

    All I can think of is that you may have the class set to say 20% opacity on your class or have you a texture on your class set to a Fresnel option
