  1. @_James Same issue is happening with us. Publishing most recent issues will reverse the order. This is on macOS Catalina, and Vectorworks 2021 SP3.1
  2. @Matt Panzer This doesn't seem to work with VW 2021 anymore. The viewport when scaled in group becomes blank.
  3. Reference marker in Vectorworks 2021; Add the functionality for reference markers to link viewports from other Vectorworks files (similar to how the publish function works with multi-file publishes)? Primary use: - Allow plan/section/elevation files to link to separate details file.
  4. Regarding the new reference marker in Vectorworks 2021; Is there a way to link viewports to another Vectorworks files (similar to how the publish function works with multi-file publishes)? This is mainly because our office works with a separate details vectorworks file from the primary plan/elevation/section file. It would be ideal if we can link the reference markers on the plan/elevation/section file to the actual details on the details file.
  5. Hi, Is there a way to create a filter definition that contains multiple layer names? For example, if I want to filter out layers that are plans, sections, and elevation, I can add multiple criterias similar to how custom selection is done. Currently, the layer filter only allows one entry of each definition, so I can only create a filter that separate out plans, or sections, but not both at the same time. The current work around is to add 1 tag (eg. PSE) to all three types of layers and filter that tag separately. But this is not ideal since sometimes you want just plans and elevations or plans and sections. Then you need tags for those combinations as well.
  6. It looks like we may have found the issue. The problem occurs on the elevation design layer. On this layer, there are 24 viewports referencing back to the main floorplans (with lots of symbols and multiple layers turned on). Moving these viewports onto another design layer and turning it off when drawing on the elevation layer solves the slowdown issue.
  7. Yes, the file has been sent to the tech and they are looking into this. Thanks.
  8. The same thing happens with either "Best Performance" or "Best Compatibility" selected.
  9. We have noticed that Vectorworks slows down/freezes every time something new is drawn (eg. lines, squares, dimensions) on layers with a lot of objects (~1800 objects). Moving and duplicating objects are okay, just not drawing anything new. It happens with VW2019 SP2 only. Other versions seem to be fine. We think this is because Vectorworks is trying to redraw the entire design layer. If all the classes on the layer are hidden, then there are no issues with drawing anything. Drawing objects inside a group without showing other objects outside the group is fine as well. If there is a way to limit the redraw to the display area instead of the entire layer, then I think it should solve this issue.
  10. This has been fixed in Vectorworks 2019 SP2. Space objects now display the area correctly without the need to use the Record.Field format.
  11. @Tim C. Thanks, I have sent you the Vectorworks file that is experiencing the slowdown as well as the activity monitor report. Let me know if there are any issues with the file.
  12. We are seeing the same issue with SP2. Multiple files have spinning beachballs (sometimes up to 10min.) when changing layers and editing objects. This is solved when we move back to sp1.1.
  13. We are noticing this same issue happening with Vectorworks 2018 and 2019 as well. Our workaround was to restart the computer then disconnect and reconnect to the server. This seems to work but it's a bit of a hassle.
  14. Yes, all the database functions still work. It is just the regular spreadsheet function (=AREA(('Space'.'11_Number'='X'))) that does not. This is due to the space object not displaying an area for the polygon in the OIP.
  15. The area function in spreadsheets is not displaying space object areas in Vectorworks 2019. This has always worked in previous versions. Formula in spreadsheet: =AREA((((L='Design Layer-1') & ('Space'.'11_Number'='R1')))) Database still displays the space area correctly. The area formula displays correctly for polygons or rectangles. Probable cause: - Clicking on a polygon or rectangle will display the area in the OIP. - Clicking on the space object does not display the area in the OIP. Where the area should be is blank.
