  1. Hi Pat, Thank you for your suggestion. My response might have sound a bit harsh if I read it now but that was totally not my intention. My apologies. A script is not necessary for me. But thank you for volunteering to write this. Much appreciated. Best regards, Bert
  2. I'm indeed changing the viewport drawing title, which is not unique. I'm not changing the viewportname (this is unique). Thank you for suggesting a script. But I think that the expected behavior would be that I can just change the drawing title of multiple selected viewports at the same time. It's like selecting 20 rectangles and changing their width in the OIP. They all change to the new width. So If I want multiple viewports to have the same drawing title, I would prefer not going through the hassle to activate a script for this simple operation but just do my adjustment in the OIP. This would make the behavior consistent as with other properties of other objects (like the rectangle example).
  3. Hi, When I select multiple viewports and I try to change the drawing title of all of them only one is renamed. Please see the screenshots, I have 3 section viewports and I try to rename them to 'vertical cut'. After entering the drawing title only one is renamed: Is this a bug that not all the viewports get the new title? Would be a time saver for me if I don't have to go to every viewport and copy paste the same name in. Thanks, Bert
  4. @Christiaan I'm not sure if you mean this with your explanation. But we're missing Hidden line with displaying the textures/colors of the objects. A bit like OpenGL but without the need to up de DPI settings of the sheet to get a clean result. If we boost the DPI settings, other hidden line viewports take forever to render. So we mostly just draw colored polygons on our viewport: Left one is without coloring, right one is with manually coloring on the viewport itself. Would be a big improvement if there was a Hidden line with colors ofcourse.
  5. Thanks for the tip, but that's already low. (It's in the description. 🙂)
  6. Hi, One of the biggest issues we're having is the wait time when rendering hidden line section viewports. Our production environment is still VW2021. I've tested VW2022 but doesn't seem to be a big improvement. We use InteriorCad to draw our cabinets. From the moment a layer contains cabinets, rendering performance takes a big hit. Rendering simple extrudes,... is no issue. Settings have been optimized to hide classes with a lot of detail. Raster Render DPI has been reduces to 33 for the sheet. Hidden line rendering settings have been optimized to this: 3D conversion Resolution has been set to Low. But why is only 7% of my CPU utilized? Can't this be increased to speed this up? Are there any other settings I can change to speeds this up? (I can't hide any more classes, layers or geometry) Thanks, Best regards, Bert
  7. Hi, I have the following issue: When I create a 2nd viewport on sheet 1 and the checkbox "Name viewport as Dwg No./Sheet No." is checked. It receives the name "2/1". When I then duplicate this viewport on this sheet, (just to change some visible classes for example). The name of the duplicate is 2/2 and not 3/1 as one would expect: This gives the issue that when I create a 2nd viewport on sheet 2 with the auto naming checkbox selected that I get a naming conflict because 2/2 already exists on sheet 1... So is it possible to fix this that duplication of a viewport changes the name according to the autonaming convention "dwg no/sheet no"? Or even better in my opinion: Change the auto naming of a viewport to "sheet no/dwg no", then the duplicate viewport logic can remain the same. Thanks, Kind regards, Bert
  8. Thank you for looking into this and marking it as a bug.
  9. No one at Vectorworks support that can acknowledge this is a bug or not?
  10. Any news on this topic? Am I doing something wrong, is there a setting off? Or is this just a bug? Definitely not resolved in VW2021 SP3.1 Build 588748.
  11. Hi, I've noticed that the DXF export sometimes changes the polyline direction. This behavior happens since VW2021. Before I didn't have this issue. It's really important for us to keep the polyline direction as we use these lines for milling on our CNC machine. In the file in the attachement you can find 2 design Layers. The first one is "Export". Here I have 2 polylines with the direction as show in this image from top to bottom. After exporting with these settings: I noticed that the right polyline has it direction inversed during the export. After importing, you can see this in the "Import" design layer: Is this a bug, or some settings that has to be changed? Thank you, Best regards, Bert ExportPolylineInversed.vwx
  12. You can go to task manager, then select your GPU. Move a bit around in vectorworks and see if the gpu gets any workload. Or you can check per application in the task manager: I also find vectorworks really slow. especially when there're many section viewports in your file.
  13. Issue is still present on windows 10 version 2020 SP2 Build 519614! Any news on when we can expect an update?
  14. Hi Stephan, Whenever I try to change a value of this object I get the following issue: version: Kind regards, Bert
  15. Hey Dom, Great node! I got it working for our clothing rails: Maybe a great addition would be if we could resize it with the reshape or selection tool. Thank you for sharing this. Kind regards, Bert
  16. Seems to have solved itself.
  17. When going to Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences I get the following error: Version info:
  18. Great! Thank you Mark! I didn't know you could change this. If anyone else is having this issue, this has to be selected:
  19. Hi, Is the insertion point of symbols broken? Whenever I create a symbol and I chose the insertion point somewhere in the middle of the symbol, VW just ignored this and takes the bottom leftmost point as the insertion point. When I edit the symbol I see that the zero point of the symbol is on the insertion point I had picked. But VW seems to ingore this when inserting the symbol. Example of symbol: When inserting, the leftmost bottom point is used as insertion point: Thank you, Best regards, Bert
  20. does work here: Ctrl+A: pressing ctrl + shift + u:
  21. At the moment I help myself with: Ctrl + A, Ctrl + Shift + U Ctrl+A: select everything on the sheet Ctrl + Shift + U: update selected viewports (don't know if this is a custom key binding)
  22. This post points out my biggest issues on this matter.
