  1. I had a similar problem yesterday. Open GL render was OK with walls until I switched on textures in the Open GL options. With textures on, I could see everything except the walls even though I'd not added textures to anything. Once I added a texture to the walls, then they showed up. Is this normal?
  2. Laura, Thanks very much for your advice. My team hadn't moved the origins either and it's a bit of a worry that this can happen no matter what size of project. I've not suffered the problem since, so fingers crossed it was a glitch. Having said that, you experienced it on 2019. Garth
  3. Scratching our heads, we've been wondering if it's because we have Macs and PCs working with these referenced files. Maybe the references behave themselves with a Mac only or PC only VW team? Nonetheless, it's unacceptable.
  4. I'm getting a 'Teigha Library Error' when exporting some DWGs. Does anyone know what this is?
  5. Thanks Alan. I think this only happens when someone updates a drawing on a PC, whereas most of us use Macs. The drawing pack is fairly large and then I hate to think what would happen to all the annotations and sheet layers.
  6. Anton, No, we're all working in Vectorworks Fundamentals so don't have that luxury. We could be working on the project, updating drawings through Dropbox for weeks without a glitch, but then get this origins problem. I need to try and track which designer is upsetting the XREF setup. Latest thought is that a particular designer is using VW 2017 on PC whereas the rest of us are on macs.
  7. Our Vectorworks project has been problem-free. Well, I meant in terms of the user origin jumping miles from where it should be. Problem-free until last week when a colleague updated one of the referenced plan files, saved it and lo and behold, it's way off when the master plan references it back in. I don't know if it's anything to do with Dropbox; I don't think so. Perhaps something to do with my colleague using a PC whereas I use a Mac? I'd love to get to the bottom of this.
  8. No. When I open a drawing, the origin has moved along way away. Oddly, not all the referenced files move, but the ones that do, have moved in relationship to the new origin position. I then reset my user origin, open the 'Organisation' box, select the ref files and update them. Then my drawing is all back together again.
  9. I'm running Fundamentals 2017 SP1 and having problems with the XREF user origin jumping way off from where it should be. This has happened about 6 or 7 times since upgrading to 2017. Is this a know issue for 2017?
