  1. Solved!! @Benson Shaw Just what I needed; a checklist! It was the corrupt object that had me thinking. My biggest hint was that it didn't happen every time. About 1/3 of the time I was able to flyover especially if I clicked and held for a few second then rotated. I started with each layer selected and tried to flyover. I systematically deselected a layer and tried the flyover again. Eventually I isolated the top floor plan containing the walls only. Even if I only selected this layer it would glitch. Next I selected "top/plan" with just this layer then "Zoom/Fit to Objects". There it was. Then "Front" and "Zoom/Fit to object" and the ruler scale went to some astronomically distant number. I think I was viewing the model from Neptune. A quick redraw of one layer (still in prelim phase) and I'm back in business. My guess as to what happened is something in the "AEC/Fit Walls to Objects..." command. I think I'll do this manually next time. Thank you everyone and all the best, Jake
  2. I've had that in the past if I recall. Lucky this time that I can reset to Top/Plan. I'm using VW 2018 on a PC for what it's worth.
  3. more... -after disappearing, if I Ctrl A to select all it will indeed select everything, but no highlighted items shown -the only way to reset and have model reappear is to go back to top/plan mode -definitely improves with fewer layers selected -I'm guessing a graphics card issue
  4. I had the same thing happen to my model. Was just about to start new post thread: Model disappears when flyover- This only happens occasionally and have had to rebuild the model in the past. Hoping to avoid that this time. Occasionally something happens to my model that makes it disappear when using the flyover tool. It doesn't happen every time, usually when more layers are selected and more often in OpenGL, not Wireframe. Has anyone had this issue and aware of a fix? By the way, I did not have the issue resolved by deselecting ClipCube. I've also got the Navigation Graphics set to "Best Compatability" I can upload the file if that helps...
  5. @AJ Roslevich Yes I think I followed those instructions to a tee; still no dice. The one piece that was missing for me was finding the old version of the installer. It is located within the unpacked folder/resources/installer folders. VW tech support helped me with and had it going tickity-boo in no time.
  6. @Jeremy Best I really appreciate the info but unfortunately, this isn't working for me. I've downloaded multiple times, unzipped with 7zip, Winrar, and Winzip and still I get the warning saying I don't have space. I do indeed have space, 150GB in fact. I have contacted my VW tech support directly and am waiting to hear back. Thanks again for your efforts. I'll post a solution if I find one. Would love to hear from @AJ Roslevich if he/she was able to get a better result.
  7. I would love to see the ability to rotate text within the dimension regardless which way the dimension runs. I run some very tight dimensions and need to change font size to 6 sometimes to fit it all in. See images below as a before and wishful after.
  8. Unfortunately, if I move a framing member (or 10) I'm looking at lots of time changing dims. Thanks, I'll add this to wishlist.
  9. I have a lot of tight dimensions and just want to turn the text within the dimension by 90° as seen in attached jpg. (1'-9 1/2" dimension shown is not a solution but a very slow workaround) It seems like this should be somewhere within VW...? Am I missing something?
  10. Wow, clearly I have to change my forum settings so I get emails when people respond to my questions. You guys are amazing! Thank you so much. Yes, I design climbing walls and am slowly adding to my library of itsy bitsy details so I can just plug them into any drawing I'm working on. (It isn't great for opening a beer bottle, better to use a H-frame carabiner :))
  11. I'm looking for any help (tools, tips, suggested videos) in drawing this in its 3d form as accurately as possible: ... any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  12. I haven't done that yet. I'm still in "work-around mode". Also, I feel like there's possibly some preference that I accidentally selected that's causing my issue.
  13. Not just a Macbook issue. I'm running Windows 10 home with VW2018. See screenshot. I'm still able to render using keyboard shortcuts but drop down menu option is greyed out. Unlike the others, my issue occurs while working on a standard design layer, not a viewport.
