  1. Hello I drawing up 2 different plans but in the same workspace but each on its own design layer. They are same objects but in a different configuration basically. Is there a way to reference the symbol count only to a specific design layer? Currently when I do a symbol count it counts all the symbols in the entire drawing and not the layer I'm working on. As in I know 1 designer has 24 symbols and the other has 46 and it is giving me the total of 70, but I want to be able to have the worksheet on sheet layer show only 24 on one plan and 36 on the other. Does that make sense?
  2. due to to 2021 upgrade I have Vectorworks 2018 for-sale. Make me a reasonable offer.
  3. Don't know how to explain this but here goes. Say I want to draw a line 2 units length at 45°, I select the line tool, click where I what the line to start hit tab, type in the values then hit return and don't get a line 2 at 45° I get a random line. It never used to do this and its very annoying. Any ideas anyone? thanks MP1943
  4. Hello I am designing a venue inside a 4 pole big top. In previous designs I have just drawn a side elevation for my height references but as I now have a bit more time I would like to actually re-create the roof. I'm working from a PDF drawing with measurements. Do you know how I might draw the roof in 3d? It attaches round the king pins and flows down to the walls then the floor. I think I would create 1 quarter of the it then mirror it to the other king pins possibly? How would you do it? I am an intermediate user but I have never used NURBS etc. Is this what I need to research and understand? I use Vectorworks 2018. Thanks MP43
  5. There is no way that I can afford to update from 2018. Will it work with Catalina? This does annoy me. I spend thousands of pounds on Vectorworks and after 2 years they don't care anymore about keeping up-to-date with current OS. Should have a life span of at least five years.
  6. Hello Is there a way to have different height legs on on the same deck. Attached is a picture of what I'm drawing and the highest desk need 2 legs on the floor and 2 on the deck. Any help appreciated. cheers
  7. Hello, I'm looking for some advice on which package to get for my job. I'm a technical manager for an arts festival and my job involves (amongst many things) site plans, venue plans, general designing of equipment (flight cases, storage units, bespoke staging, hand rails and anything else that I need made or fabricated) and build plans. My question is which version of Vectorworks is best for my role do you think? I was going to get spotlight but that might be to restrictive to my needs but I would find the staging, trussing, soft goods and lighting fixtures useful but also I find trees and shrubs useful but then I found it useful the other day suing the doors & windows for plan of a storage unit. I use use the wood and metal textures because a lot of bits I have made is out of wood, so this is hand to show to people when describing what I'm intending and what it will look like. I am completely torn. Which one would give me the most for the money as it is very (some should say too) expensive. Thoughts, questions and opinions welcome. Thanks Stocky
