  1. Take a look at hybrid symbols and/or auto hybrids in the help files. These will let you have 2d geometry in top/plan view and 3d in all other views. The two are similar in concept, but work a little differently. Quick video on hybrids here:
  2. Hmmm. Can't see the video, but I'm doing it on win 10 as well. Sorry it's not working for you.
  3. Hi Nick! I just tried this (in VW 2019) - I grabbed a PNG that is on a design layer and copied to my clipboard. Opened photoshop and made a new canvas - this defaults to the size of what is on your clipboard - and then pasted and it worked a charm. I can also paste into a new blank layer on an existing file. What steps are you taking for your copy and paste?
  4. Double clicking on the polygon/polyline should launch the reshape tool for you automatically. If you are in the first mode - I think corner vertex mode (not in front of a computer) - the control handle should be selectable. I have a video on it here:
  5. A mesh is a group of 3D polygons. Usually, you have to remodel these to get them to behave when modifying. You can try going inside the mesh (double click on it), select all and run ADD SOLIDS. You can then try push pull on the parts you want to modify. Might work, might explode depending on complexity. Save before you try this ūüôā
  6. Is ambient occlusion coming into play here? I wouldnt think so, but it looks like it. *longshot
  7. Auto hybrid would take care of the 2d for you (hence the auto)...but I realize this is different then what you're asking for.
  8. You could make it a hybrid or auto hybrid symbol and control the top plan view.
  9. Hmmm, not sure Charlie. I don't usually bring obj into VW and try to preserve texture mapping, so outside my wheelhouse. I didn't think VW dealt with uv projection outside of Cubic.... Is that true?
  10. Orbit via the mouse with right click and move the mouse. Pan with middle mouse button and move the mouse. W A S D to move your body /camera. Q E to move vertical up and down. So, think less like cad and more like first person video game.
  11. Have to register, but with it : https://designsmithco.com/venue-library/ e.
  12. I don't know if it's specific for drafting, but I use Squarespace for my website. Great templates and easy to use. My wife uses Wix and likes it. Lots of options out there now.
  13. Mark is correct. I would say setting up fix profile and getting everything aligned first is more work then adjusting the profile after running the command.
  14. Maybe this helps? You just have to click to drop your pivot point before you orbit. Seems an extra click, but you get used to it. I don't even think about it anymore. Fly over tool starts at 6:00 minutes.
  15. We use zoom and goto meeting. Both work well.
