    PC and Mac

    Question for users who use both PC and Mac. Forgetting the hardware i may have to use a Mac occasionally and am a long term PC user. Apart from the shortcuts PC= Alt & Mac Option, PC= Ctrl & Mac=Cmd. etc, is is basically all the same interface so easy to switch from PC to Mac to draw? Thanks in advance Alan

    Wall styles

    @SadeHi, see attached. Note the setup of the wall, all is by class and components. Get this right and you can change walls easily. Always draw walls clockwise so you know which is the right side or left so when adding textures all will work. HTH Also have a look at this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkK32tglmIE Wall with Insulation.vwx Wall with Insulation v2016.vwx

    Glass Railing Transparency in "Hidden Line" render VP

    @khumennyHi, It doesn't appear to be able to adjust the transparency in the viewport. What i have done is use a mask in the annotations layer and adjusted the transparency of the mask. HTH Handrail.vwx

    @khandschuhHI, you can control it in the Viewport by making the glass class no fill. See attached. HTH Glass Handrail.vwx

    3D Roof not re-positioning

    Hi, I am finding that if i move a 3D roof for some reason and then do an undo (Ctl_Z) the roof often does not move back. Everything else is undone but the roof remains in the moved location and has to be manually moved back. When this happens its also a sign that the program will crash very soon so i close without saving (As is save all the time) and all is good again until the next time. Any one else experiencing this??

    How do I Auto-Rotate text in 3d view VW 2019?

    @Olivier Jauniaux Hi, you can convert the text to polygons and extrude it then rotate as needed . Or create an image prop from a text block say use photoshop and create a jpg and make a transparent mask. It will rotate toward you if you wish, Good Luck.
