  1. More window tinkering, social distancing lends itself to learning more tool features. The first image shows a window with interior and exterior trims. The second image shows the settings for the sizes of the trims, this means on the first image the interior is at the top, the exterior is at the bottom. Then in right axiomatic view, the tag is shown facing to the interior. Or am I missing how interior / exterior relate to the wall and I have pretty much everything flipped? And if flipped, how do I recognize this while laying out a floor plan?
  2. Just tinkering with the window tool and have a question about how the sash and mullion are related. The first image shows a window with a custom sash to represent two window units mulled together. The second image shows the window sash offset to locate it closer to the exterior face. The mullion does not offset with the sash and there doesn't appear to be a setting where one can offset the mullion. Is there a setting I haven't found yet?
  3. Have you looked at the Vectorworks University? https://university.vectorworks.net
  4. Over at the Vectorworks University I'm working my way through the 'Model Setup' course to see if I should incorporate Stories into my workflow. Starting the section on Wall and Slab Styles and came to this paragraph. It could be me but I'm not sure how this relates to this particular topic. Was the course designer having a 'moment' or is this an easter egg to see if anyone actually reads the course notes?
  5. Don't think this has been posted elsewhere, Vectorworks has made a number of their online seminars free until June 30. I just took the Architect Essentials and the Vectorworks Hidden Treasures seminars and picked up a number of tips that I will explore further. If you have time on your hands at the moment, these are worth looking into. Thanks VW. https://blog.vectorworks.net/how-vectorworks-is-helping-customers-during-covid-19?_hsenc=p2ANqtz-8nVatovbhuGs42FFvL9jBa66aOexcdPJEXptIdawXmfHcYlMIGhkePtv9okh5FMTqV0mecsANucbfpj5KULQm5R8IgJg&_hsmi=85077778
  6. I do something similar fairly often. I usually duplicate the symbol so the original can remain in place and the duplicate can be adjusted, If you didn't want two symbols for some reason, then place a second symbol and convert to group. Then edit the symbol or group using the reshape tool to move the legs but "stretch" the seating portion.
  7. Apple and Google have moved their cancelled public events (WWDC and I/O) to online events. Is there any content from the summit that could be moved to online as well? (given that a number of us now find ourselves with unexpected time on our hands)
  8. Not an answer to your question but I am in similar situation and was starting to look for links and YouTube content to brush up my skills.
  9. And what about today's headline . . . . . SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom has issued sweeping, statewide “guidance” in response to the coronavirus pandemic, asking Californians to postpone all non-essential gatherings through the end of March, including even small social gatherings in places where people can't remain at least six feet apart.
  10. A little later after some tinkering I solved the wall cutting / gap issue with new 3D loci at the corners of the window frame. (not the trim) And then started again with a different idea. Using two symbols, one for the window and a second symbol for the mullions with class control I get the look and control I was looking for.
  11. I'm tinkering with a window symbol to add a different munition pattern. The first image is the window inserted in the wall and looking as expected. The second is the same window after I edited the 3D component adding the new muntins. The window symbol now cuts the wall inline with the exterior edge of the interior trim. I tried adding 3D loci and made a further mess of things so thought I'd post the question for guidance from wiser minds. Thank you in advance.
  12. I've attached two images showing my question about an inserted window. The first is rendered in OpenGL - everything looks as expected. The second is the same wall & window rendered as a Unshaded Polygon. The second image seems to show "creases" in the wall running from the wall corners to the corners of the window. Have I set something wrong on the window tool?
  13. There are several You Tube videos dealing with classes and layer organization. Once you get a handle on them you will find them a very powerful tool.
  14. Can you assign each colour to a class and then switch between classes?
  15. Where is that first icon on my toolset? Do I click it and lunch is delivered?
