  1. Trust me, I've been watching that thread 🙂
  2. It's in EVERY file I open. Even if the file started with someone else and I just open it on my computer.
  3. It HAS to be a bug. I've looked at a bunch of settings files that have a large number of default classes. But they only show up when needed. These two classes must be an oversight. I'll keep looking 🙂
  4. No. I'm about to go looking in the library for folders to delete 🙂
  5. Drag the image into VW. Double click on it. Draw a polygon, polyline, circle, oval, or rectangle around the part you want to keep. Exit the crop. Once you do that you can also clip that surface to make "holes" in the image.
  6. I'd love it there were a couple additional shortcuts: 1. While editing a class, I'd like a shortcut to edit the texture assigned to that class. 2. While editing a texture, I'd like a shortcut to edit the hatch attached to that texture.
  7. @hollister design Studio 🙂 That bugs me too! I know it's built into some stock wall styles. The class has a description: "Use this class for graphical representation of solid extra light lines." I just keep deleting it. But I bet there's a better way.
  8. You need to duplicate the worksheet resource in the Resource Manager - not the instance of the worksheet on the drawing. Rename the existing worksheet for the floor it covers. Then duplicate the worksheet in the resource manager. Name it for the next floor. Change the criteria. Insert into the drawing. Rinse. Repeat.
  9. Select the section viewport. In the OIP click on Advanced Properties… > Extents Your height range is set to be Finite from 0 to 0 Change it to Infinite or give a range greater than 0.
  10. When you have weird wall blobs like that you can often use a Pillar object. Draw a polygon > AEC > Pillar… > enter height Once you have a Pillar created you can join walls to it.
  11. The problem with most site surveys is that they don't have a lot of dimensions on them. 🙂 If there's a scale bar you've got it made. Even the property line lengths are usually dimensions of a projection and not the same as plan dimensions.
  12. I see these often. You can totally ignore that Civil 3D file warning. I find that's sometimes a good sign, because those files sometimes contain 3D information that speed up making a DTM. If you want to post it here or send it to me in a PM I'll give it a try :-).
  13. If you're using a brand new MBP I don't think you will get 2017 to run on it. System requirements: https://www.vectorworks.net/sysreq?version=2017
  14. Can you post a file with a viewport misbehaving viewport?
  15. Do you mean the group trick to copy between files? Or just copying VPs within a files? (I've copied about 50 viewports just today 🙂 If you mean between files. I agree. I miss it.
