  1. Not done yet. Definitely needed.
  2. Jesse, Thanks for that. I will definitely give it a try. I didn't know that the eyedropper tool would also work for this. So much to learn.
  3. Having just edited 12 viewports with the same class overrides, viewport styles (including overrides) can't come soon enough for me.
  4. Jesse, I can see that you certainly have use for the current organization. My needs are much simpler.
  5. Why the visibility of the section lines is handled like this is a total mystery to me. Just using classes would be so much simpler.
  6. For me it was a workspace issue. I put the new menu command into my workspace and now all is well.
  7. Found it and fixed my workspace. Thanks.
  8. I've installed SP3 and I am not seeing Unreal Datasmith as an option under Export. I've restarted VW but no luck.
  9. I'm going through the file and replacing all the walls with a style I have tested and know works. Royal PITA. Seems like the walls in the file have been corrupted. While I have had plenty of crashes with VW, I have never had corrupted elements before. This is by far the buggiest software I have ever used. However, there are too many good things about VW to abandon it. If VW was stable, it would be truly great.
  10. Restarted the computer. Now I can see the control points of a wall change but the the OpenGL representation doesn't change.
  11. Adobe mucked up my computer the other day. There were some issues with the C++ runtime. After rolling back to a previous restore point everything was working again. Vectorworks seemed fine yesterday except fit to walls wasn't working properly. Again this morning, the fit walls to objects wasn't working properly. This afternoon, changes in the OIP for walls stopped working. I could only change wall height by going into components and adjusting the height there. So reinstalled VW but the problem persists. VW as part of its install reinstalled the C++ runtime so that shouldn't be the problem. Not sure where to go from here. Any suggestions out there?
  12. Good tips. Problem solved. Thank you. Another VW mystery solved. About 90% functional with VW now. 100% is an elusive goal.
  13. In using the door tool, under options for the leaf, there is an option for a custom door. Picking one of the available options (a Craftsman style), the door comes in coloured brown and the glass is blue. I can not find any way to alter these two colours. They are not affected by class settings. The colours seem to be built into the leaf option. Is there a way to control them?
  14. Yes, while VW has some great features, it is riddled with these behaviors which seem designed to send you to some other software.
  15. I don't have a strategy. I average about one crash a day. While I have found VW to crash more (a lot) than any other software I use, I find it crashes very politely. I have never had a corrupt file. I have my backup set to 10 minutes plus do a save probably every five minutes. The most I lose is 10 minutes work and it never appears to effect anything other than the work since the last save or backup. VW has some great parts and I put up with the crashing because of them.
