  1. If I understand correctly the wish is for 2 parts A) a better system to combine a group of elements together and have that group react to each other if further edits are required. So once you've created the the flat and trimmed it with a baseboard you could combine them to a symbol-like "thing" or a super-group. The Object info would expose some controls from the combined object (like styled objects do) to allow selective changes to the object. ie a Flat with Baseboard could be resized and it would all grow in the way you've told it to grow. B) on the back of new system complex plug-in objects break up in to smaller easy to maintain object, allow 2 complex objects to use the same sub-object so for example a Stair-object and theoretical Balcony-object would both internally use the same balustrade object to the point of exploding either would lead to a group of the sub-objects.
  2. Also why does it render different to the rendering engine in the installed app. Helpful that it is less buggy.
  3. Also - - why does it cancel 5 hours worth of rendering without an "are you sure?" - why does it look just the same as close dialogue buttons. Why Oh Why oh Why?
  4. Which is there for when you do Reflected ceiling plans.
  5. If there is something in the works it could be called "Vectorworks - Director" for those who've outgrown their desk bound career as a Designer but don't think going back to paper should be the answer in this day and age.
  6. But has no problem if done with each viewport done as a separation.
  7. Add iPadOS benefits over base iOS. I'd be willing to pay for another 1/2 license to use on the iPad for users who need access to some but maybe not the full feature set.
  8. Also should report if the Back up file is more recent than than the recent file in the list.
  9. Well I was kind of hoping if they seriously looked at an iPadPro Version of Vector/Nomad it might get them looking at how bad some of the old interface like OIP is regear it totally and make it better for everyone.
  10. When working on BIM projects that are multi-storey doing Facade/Elevation treatments I find a lot of time I'm bouncing from a full model, Active only it would be most useful to isolate just the active layers of the current storey of the building.
  11. I have script somewhere that makes an object in every class with the attributes by class. Make a symbol of that have it in your library and if purge gets to happy you drop the symbol back in and bingo classes all back. Have that symbol on a layer that is other wise empty unlikely to get turned on like a group divider and purge then says there are object in those classes and leaves them out of the purge list.
  12. Will Viewport styles even make it to VW2024? It hasn't even made it past "Active Research" since the roadmap was first released.
  13. That looks to basically the same Versioning system software engineers use to manage complex projects larger and small. I'm very envious of the those tools and how useful they could be to BIM projects. Would dearly love to see a GIT based IFC federation system that worked with Multiple venders and lots of useful tools. No more file formate worries or dealing with contract boundaries stopping co-ordination. As Blame and CodeOwners could really help streamline a single model being worked on by multiple companies.
  14. Or even relative to the file. If your standard folder structure allows it these options would avoid the need to think about it.
  15. It’s in the roadmap under viewport styles. When that arrives I have no idea. since this was posted we now have storeys and story layers have a type as well strikes me a viewport style could have a target story as well and visibility of layers could be automatically set by that.
  16. If this happens what would be the effect of the flip button?
  17. With many still working both in office and home or other remote locations. (some because they discovered how good it is others for many other reasons) It would be good to have a recent files list that covered files we opened in either location. Sure files would need to be accessible both locations like Vectorworks Cloud, dropbox, et al and office server but would be great if it was synced. Even maybe have a team options to share my recent list with co-workers.
  18. Do you have another larger spaces called 1? I've found the function returns an array of spaces in that location anywhere vertically in the file.
  19. Until you hit a tool that Is hardcoded to only use the primary units of the file and can't switch to dual.
  20. Given the working file is a complete copy your using say at least 4 times the volume on your server and getting on bandwidth reduction from read or write. Keeping working files on local means a lot less read times. @Benson Shaw if you don’t save your working file how do you get auto save to work?
  21. Also, and it depends on usefulness to you, A reference of the original file can have different units. So our working files remain millimetres we often reference presentations files set to metres so Space objects work well.
  22. Unsure why this setting is still marked slow. Is it really slow? you can set so the snap loupe zoom is independent. I have line thickness on in main view but off in the snap loupe to make the line ends clear.
  23. Agree fully anyone using Project sharing probably worked or still works with Workgroup referencing. We are very much geared to dividing layer (which are free after all) to allow more people to work in files without tripping over each other. Checking out a full layer is faster. as you only need to do it once per layer. Not sure I've seen any advantage all all to per object check outs.
