  1. Is there a tool in VW that allows me to grab hold of storiess, such as walls? I have to put some kind of teeth on a corner of a wall and make a penant is not an option because it is about a corner see image. I would like to get that toothing from floor to floor, for example. Now I made it in the form of a column but here I always have to enter the height and feed height manually.
  2. In Sketchup you have a function called 2 points perspective. In this way you see all lines perpendicular to each other in your 3D. Is there such a thing in Vectorworks or how do you set that up? Kind regards Pascal
  3. Thanks in advance for the effort, but even now I get the same with low cabinet I get it correct, but with high cabinet I only get to see a line but when I deselect I see nothing anymore. When I change back to a low cupboard, I see what I want in the right color.
  4. Could you not help me by adjusting the script according to your comments please. What I don't really understand much about it. Thanks in advance
  5. With my limited knowledge of Vectorscript, I tried to write a simple script for the sign of a low and high cupboard in floor plans. The intention is for the low cupboard to have a white filling and the high cupboard to have a dark gray filling. I want to get this by choosing the high or low cupboard in my info pallet. I manage to draw the low cupboard with white filling, but if I choose high cupboard, I only get a line and my cupboard disappears. Could someone help me make this script workable. If it is possible to give a height via the script, this would be a very nice extension for me. Thanks in advance for the help.

  6. Can someone tell of give me a good workflow to create a curved window in 2d/3d a in the picture please thank you
  7. Hello Thank you for te very fine and clear explication
  8. so there is not a method to make it in 2d/3d with the stair tool?
  9. Hello Can anyone tell me how I can create this stair. Before the curved part I need 11 steps in the curved part I need 3 steps witch must end right, because I must place after the corner 2 steps. My stair is in 90° ( see picture) thanks for the support
  10. Hello Is it possible to get a short introduction how i can work with this script please in 2019 Thank you very much Pascal
  11. Hello I get the same problem, I run the script in vw 2018 but everytime I used it I get the message need a comma. But how do you use the script in a menu or as a tool. Pascal
  12. Thanks for remember me to update my specifications about my computer. This is what it is for the moment iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) Processor 4,2 GHz Intel Core i7 memory 24 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 Radeon Pro 575 4096 MB and sometimes by rendering section viewport in Open GL I have 1,8MB left of my memory Programs that run on the same time are outlook, safari and iTunes. Greetings Pascal
  13. Yes there is also a Dutch version of Vectorworks. Designexpress is the distributor for Belgium and the Netherlands. I work with MacOs Mojave, and there are no antivirus programs running on the mac. CleanmymacX. And I usually get the message that I am running out of memory. I also feel the longer you work with VW the more the cach files increase,
  14. Thank you for the answer. It is mainly in the vectorworks 2018 SP 6 where I have the problem, while only 1 drawing is open. But then everything goes very slow, selecting, moving, until the only solution is to close the program, empty the cache and restart, then I can usually work again for half an hour, but then you feel it slowing down considerably. I work with the Dutch version, so SP3 for 2019 is not yet available. But it is frustrating to have to work that way.
  15. What is that with the memory, speed of vectorworks 2018 and 2019 on a mac? I notice that as I work with vectorworks the program gets slower and slower. Sometimes I get the message that I am out of memory, while I have 24GB of memory. When I close Vectorworks after a long look on a rotating beach ball and restart it goes very smoothly for a while. Someone also solve that problem and how.
  16. transparency. Is this a bug. For example, if you draw a rectangle with a transprance of 50% and you want the lines to follow 100%, the lines always follow the settings of the fill. Or how should you set that please? Pascal
  17. I don't use the script in 2019 but in 2018. And there is get the message comma expected for every class in the document. Pascal
  18. Hello I try to use this script. But when I selected the script and click in my drawing, I always get the message "comma expected" When there are 2 classes and I click twice on OK I get the sheet with the tings I need. But when there hundred of classes than I have to click as many times as there are classes. I think I don't use it on the right way. Mayby you can give me a tip how to work with it Thanks Pascal
  19. Thank You Pat works Perfect Pascal
  20. Could someone help me with a script, which moves a selected object to the active class. Thank you Pascal
  21. I have a workdoc. in my teamwork. This evening I want to save and commit to my project file. But I always get a window for replace a wall style. He want to replace and existing wall style always in the same wallstyle. I can not push the annulation button only the OK button is available. Problem is every time and I click maybe 100 Time the OK button but gets always the same window. Anyone know what the problem her is and how ik can solved it? Thank you for the feedback
  22. ok I find the problem, with the help by DrelARCH. It is like you said. When you are one active class with a opacity lower than 100%; it comes a kind of gray. When you change the class with opacity 100% and you edit the wall everything is coming just fine Thanks for the hint Pascal
  23. thank you and how do you reset a thumbnail please? I choose for edit the wall style and than choose everything by class but nothing change thanks Pascal
  24. Would anyone know why some wall styles in my resource browser have a kind of gray film above them, while others are again according to the set characteristics. See image. for example the walls [MU] isolava 20 Thanks Pascal
