  1. What is the best export settings to create smooth vector shapes? 300 DPI is fairly good when viewed at 100%, 1200 dpi is a lot better, but both are pixelated rather than vectors. I've tried many different settings all with the same results. Is there a way to make the exported PDF vector shapes? PDF at 300 DPI: PDF at1200 DPI:
  2. I asked for this a long time ago, and it's still missing from Vectorworks. It's impossible to drag to move grouped or multiple objects to a desired location since there's no preview of the objects. Please add this functionality. It would save me a lot of time. As it is now I have to move objects individually if I want to "see" where they are going.
  3. I have all classes off but one, I turn on all classes, and then go to previous view. The classes are not visible on my screen anymore, but my Navigation palette shows them all turned on. I've resarted Vectorworks and restarted my computer. No change. I've checked my prefs and see nothing there, and I have not made any prefs changes. All classes off. Note the Xs in the Navigation palette. None class is active. I turn all classes on. Note the eyeballs in the Navigation palette. Then I go to Previous View in the view menu. See the objects are not showing, but the eyeballs in the Navigation palette are still on.

    Resource Manager Symbol Thumbnails Disappear

    Must be a bug.
  5. My resource manager symbol thumbnails are disappearing. I have no clue why, but I go in and set them to Set Thumbnail View to Right ISO, they appear again, and then sometime later the thumbnail has disappeared. Looks like this first (the other two thumbnails were missing as well yesterday). Then I set it again:

    Ipad Pro 2018 and Vectorworks

    Is the any hope that someday soon we may have a version of Vectorworks that works on my iPad Pro? That would be very nice.

    OIP Text Styles List?

    Maybe this would be clearer if the sections in the list had headings like Text Style in this File and Default Text Style.

    Got it. Thanks.

    OIP Text Styles List?

    I've altered my default text styles file by removing the styles that were there when Vectorworks was installed, and I replaced them with my text styles. Now I'm trying to understand what I'm seeing in my OIP and in my Resource Manager. Can you help explain this to me? In this file I removed all text styles from file's resources. Then using the default text styles I applied the two that now appear in the Resource Manager. So I'm assuming that in the OIP text style dropdown list the second section shows me which styles are used in this file, but I'm confused about what the third section is showing me. All of the styles listed there are in my default file, but why are the two noted as (Text Styles.vwx) and the others not?

    Say it ain't so!

    This message appeared when I launched Vectorworks 2019. This isn't true, is it?

    Navigation Graphics Compatibility

    Yikes! Not good news. Will I be able to run Vectorworks on my MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar when the VGM is updated?

    Navigation Graphics Compatibility

    Do you know of an inexpensive eGPU that would work with my MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar, and would using one give my Mac an all around performance boost?
