  1. I am working in the theater, and Vectorworks quits when I go to print; it does not get as far as the print window. Indeed, it now quits spontaneously and without any provocation. Restarting does not solve the problem. I am away from home in-theater, and don't have my disks to reinstall or my registration code to run under OS9. I do have high speed internet access. Please advise. I am running a Powerbook G4 667, 768mb RAM, OS 10.2.2. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the link. The tutorial was very useful, although it appears to be for an earlier version of Vectorworks/Renderworks, as the dialog boxes don't corespond.

    I am trying to create a backdrop from a jpeg file. I had understood that one imported it as a texture. That doesn't seem to be working for me. Please provide step-by-step instructions for doing this. Many thanks.
  4. I've been contemplating this problem too. The best I've been able to do is create a 2d/3d symbol for the boom itself, with the 2d boom at an angle and the 3d boom straight up. Lights are inserted along the line of the 2d boom, get the Z-axis set by hand, are moved to the pipe origin to draw the beam, and then moved back, one by one. To do a 3d rendering, I drag the units on top of one another in 2d, then view in other views. It's awkward, but you get a hangable 2d plot.
  5. Does this happen when you print out, or only on screen? I had and was concerned about the problem, but in fact my plot prints out properly.
  6. Why is it that I lose the lighting position and Z height information when I rotate a unit on a pipe as I'm clicking the lighting instrument tool, and the Z height information when I rotate in the object information palette? I'm using VW Spotlight 9.5.0 in OS X.

    I would agree that the inability to threefer is an annoying drawback to the program.
