  1. Fair. Thank you very much for your time Redmodro.
  2. Hi Redmodro, thank you for such a quick response!! So, the process you describe is what I went through (and is my normal way of setting this). I should mention that we have just moved to 2021 (SP2), and this is the first time doing this in 2021. I have also ensured that the Internal Origin is over the known station point. Ah! That last screenshot of the Document Georeferencing! My Latitude and Longitude have the same values, but I can't find anywhere that will convert milimeter accuracy OS grid references to Lat and Long values with the same accuracy. As you mention, we don't tend to use Georeferencing that much either, but when we share files with others (or even copy and pasting from one drawing to another) the sites are miles apart and potentially dangerous for us to 'eyeball it'.
  3. Hi gang, sorry to butt into this slightly old thread, but it's the closest thing I could find to my issue. I'd like to reverse this operation... I am (probably through my own ignorance) unable to get the Easting and Northings to be what I want them to be. The X and Y co-ordinates are perfect (by 'Next Mouse Click Is' on a known station point), but when I use the 'Set User Origin to Match the Georeferencing Coordinate System' the X and Y get moved to the Easting and Northing values. I'm not sure what I need to do here.
  4. Hi all, I'm having some issues with the Component Join Tool. I've joined two walls (in the normal fashion - Wall Join Tool > L Join Mode > Uncapped Join Mode) and I would like to have the outer component of one wall finish on the back of the outer component of the other wall. However, whenever I try to do this (Component Join Tool > Capped Join Mode) the second selected wall pulls back to thickness of the first (screenshot below). The walls are the same height, thickness, at 90 degrees to each other; the only difference is the outer component. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? (Vectorworks 2019 SP6) Original before component joining with desired effect in green mark up lines: Outcome:
  5. Matt, That is some fantastic detective work! Thank you very kindly for this info. I'll make sure this is corrected in our templates.
  6. Hi Matt, Thanks for replying. I've updated my original post with the Vectorworks version and OS version. See attached a simple file with just an Elevation Benchmark object in the middle. A little testing: I did try a brand new - Blank (metric).sta - file and the tool worked as expected. Then I tried again in brand new drawing based on our office template file and it went wrong, so I assume that something is wrong with our template (or the way my Vectorworks seems to interact with it). I believe I am the only person in the office to have updated to the latest 2019 service pack. Maybe there's an interaction here. Benchmark Issue.vwx
  7. I've just started having the benchmark problem... Any drawing I open and select/move a Benchmark object, the text changes from what I would expect to be 'normal' and then looks like the screenshot attached (does not want to go 'above line'). Any ideas? EDIT: This is Vectorworks 2019 SP5.3, on Mac 10.13.16
  8. Yes! Thank you Boh. I knew it would be something simple. I thought that would just make the text go down so never tried it - my bad.
  9. Good afternoon all, Hopefully a simple one that I'm missing a tick box for... Is it possible to get a text box containing the revision letter, and the date to align with the top of the text box containing the revision description? So the revision letter is at the head of the revision, rather than the base? See the screenshot below for how it currently works. P.s. this is Vectorworks 2019 SP5.2.
  10. Thank you Elepp! I've just had a reply from tech support telling me the same. I didn't realise there were more sneaky options!
  11. I only want to download this enormous file once (rather than killing the bandwidth of our office with everyone downloading it). That updater is for either pointing to the already downloaded update file, or downloading and installing in one. Unless I'm missing something?
  12. But what if there's no wall? Or the tapering of the stairs is more than the thickness of the wall can hide?
  13. Hey gang, Every time I use the Mac link to download the offline updater, it downloads SP4... https://www.vectorworks.net/support/downloads/product-updates. Anywhere else I can download the offline SP5.1 updater?
  14. Apologies, I've just sorted this out. 1) Convert Stairs to 3D polylines. 2) Delete sides (optional) 3) Create guide extrusion for cutting the stairs (steps 3 and 4 can be swapped around) 4) Select the risers and treads of the stair, and then Model > Add Solids (this step makes the stairs into a single 'thing'). 5) Select the guide extrusion and the stairs and use Model > Subtract Solid (make sure the thing you want to keep is selected red). 6) Done.
  15. Hi all, I'm doing the same but struggling. @Wes Gardner, what kind of explode would you go for? 3D Polylines, 3D Mesh? Whenever I try this method and then use an rectangular extrusion as a guide to Subtract Solids, nothing seems to happen. @James Corbett, how 'simple' do the stairs have to be. I've got a single run of what I'd call simple stairs, but the Split Tool doesn't have an effect.
