    3D Pine Trees

    The image props appear as two 2D images 90º opposed to one another. Is there a setting that may be used to make them appear as 3D images? I will try update my profile with OS an VW version. I use a Mac and I am currently using VW 2018.

    3D Pine Trees

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had already tried that. I only found 2D elevations, 2D plan images, and image props, no 3D pine trees. I did find some stylized 3D conifers in Entourage Plants, but nothing realistic.

    Does Vectorworks have any 3D pine trees?

    VW 2017 Project Sharing

    The project sharing in VW 2017 is very cumbersome. Is there a way to convert a project file that is set up for sharing back to a regular VW file?

    Project Sharing

    I am trying to save and commit a working file to my project file. When I select save and commit, a window pops up stating "Are you sure that you want to continue with this operation and lose your uncommited changes on that layer, A-100? The administrator revoked your exclusive lock on that layer and other users have subsequently committed changes on that layer. If you choose to continue, your uncommitted changes on that layer will be lost. YES NO" This window came up for almost every sheet layer and many design layers. I selected yes for all of them. VW crashes after I select yes for the last item. I have tried restarting computer and the crash still happens. Any idea how to fix this?

    Windows

    Is it possible to get the windows from window manufacturers to be drawn accurately? Typically the bottom rail of the bottom sash of a window is taller that the top & middle rails. The bottom rail is also taller that the sides of the sashes are wide.

    Extruded 3D Polygon

    I am trying create a difficult roof shape. I have created a 3D Polygon by selecting the three points of the roof plane. Vectorworks will not allow me to extrude the 3D Polygon. Any suggestions as to how to accomplish this?

    Auto Hybrid

    When I try to edit an auto hybrid, the object disappears in the edit auto hybrid function. The object is not there when I exit the edit auto hybrid function. Also, when I try to create an auto hybrid from an extrusion, the extrusion becomes 2 objects, one of which is in a different location from the location that I created, and the other is an object that I can not see anyhwere on my screen. The only way that I know it becomes two objects is that the object info palette states that 2 objects are selected. This has not happened before when working with auto hybrids, and does not occur in any of my other projects. Has anyone else experienced this? The project I am working in was created by a coworker who is no longer with our firm. Could there be some setting that she used that i am not aware of that causes this issue?

    Volume of a mass

    Does VW have a tool to calculate the volume of a mass?

    Large Cumbersome PDF files

    I opened a PDF file that was 3.7MB, and after exporting from Color Sync Utility using the Reduce File Size filter, the file is 6.6MB. Not fully double, but still larger than original.

    Large Cumbersome PDF files

    The VW file size is 143.1 MB, The file exports as a 8.2MB PDF file. I have been able to reduce the PDF file size to 3.7 in the Acrobat Pro Application. Items within the PDF still generate individually even after reducing the file size in Acrobat Pro. I have attached the screen shot of the PDF export settings

    Large Cumbersome PDF files

    I tried your suggestion. I have a Mac. The size of the PDF file doubled after opening it in Color Sync Utility, then exporting as a PDF format and selecting the Reduce File Size filter.

    Large Cumbersome PDF files

    Rasterizing the text did reduce the file size slightly, but the quality of the PDF was reduced significantly. The link you included in your response stated that there are a number of changes that allow you to create faster and smaller PDF's, but it does not elaborate on what those changes are, or how to create faster and smaller PDF's. It only talks about how to address PDF's within a VW drawing. The large files that I am having issues with do not contain PDF's within the VW drawing.
