    Orthogonal drawing lock tool

    Make sure the Snap to Angle constraint is on.
  2. The 2D components for Hybrid Objects feature movie should clarify it for you: https://www.vectorworks.net/en/architect/features Also have a look at Help: Concept: 2D Components for Symbol Definitions and Plug-in Objects

    convert vectorworks to sketchup

    Try exporting each 3D layer separately so they can import them one by one and assemble the model manually.

    Vectorworks 2019 release date

    I'm with Kevin on this one. An interface that looks like and works like it does in the promotional videos would be a real winner.

    Hatches for Humans

    Will, you can do this with Tile fills. For more information look at Help. There is a sub-section in Basic Techniques titled Using Tile Fills. I would still like to see a more visual way to define hatches though as per your Wish.

    sketchup import plugin

    No and it is unlikely that there is one.

    sketchup import plugin

    The Industry versions of Vectorworks: Architect, Landmark, Spotlight and Designer can import Sketchup files. Fundamentals doesn't have that capability.

    Symbols & layer scale

    Pammv, use page based symbols for electrical. They will then be the same size no matter what the scale of the Viewport is or the scale of the Design Layer. It is an option within the Symbol Options edit choices in the Resource Browser. If you are going to change the option for existing Symbols make sure you are in a 1:1 scale Layer when you do it.

    Stair data text attributes.

    Graphic Attributes pane of the Stair Settings dialog box.
  10. Apologies M5D. I missed the gist of your original post by not reading it carefully enough. Hopefully the Vw Inc people will be able to give you an answer.
  11. Rather than building the slab from three components try making it a single component slab and subtract the bottom recesses.
  12. Do you get the same result if you use the Subtract 3D Object From Slab command instead of using Solid Subtraction?

    VWX won't load

    Try trashing the Vectorworks User folder first. If that doesn't work then try reinstalling. Delete the 'clean my mac' program from your Mac and never be tempted to use it again.

    Slab Object As a Site Modifier

    - Full height single component slab (in this instance 172 thick) - Create a tapered extrude of portion(s) to be removed (in this instance 72 high with taper at 45°) - Align bottom of slab and tapered extrude(s). - Select slab and tapered extrudes(s) and use Subtract 3D Object From Slab command (AEC menu).

    Slab Object As a Site Modifier

    How would you deal with these scenarios though where the slab bottom varies and there are footings?
