    Notes Manager VW2020

    @jnr I am having similar problems. I can't seem to add notes or additional Sections in the Database. They disappear once I've added them. This feature used to work, now it does not. I have copied and pasted notes from another file, but they don't seem to stay in the database - the VW one or the User one. I tried to add a Section titled "Restrooms" for relevant notes. They disappear. Confused

    2021 Architecture Wishlist

    I've read all the posts on this stream and I understand the need to prioritize. Over 11,000 wishes? I'll add one more. WISH - Please allow symbols or PIOs to be absorbed into slabs and the A.C. tile tool much like a door or window is absorbed into a wall. I like to model the lights for both visualizations and for RCP's. Unless I'm missing something obvious, I have to do far too much editing to clip holes in AC Tile objects and ceiling slab objects.

    Keynote legend in more than one place

    Simply put... 1. I created a Keynote Legend from Call Outs (Floor Plan notes). The call outs are located within VPs (the numbers with leader arrows). The Legend is on the (Floor Plan) Sheet Layer, but not in a VP. 2. I created another Keynote Legend from Call Outs (Interior Elevations) on another Sheet Layer (Interior Elevations) and linked them to the Legend on the same Sheet Layer. 3. Those Call Outs appeared in the Keynote Legend on the first Sheet Layer (Floor Plan) even though I selected them an linked them to the second legend (Interior Elevations). 4. I started getting additional notes, gaps and the keynote legend renumbering itself. Maybe my problem is I moved the first Keynote Legend to another Sheet Layer. However, that was never a problem before. At that point, I couldn't correct it, VW crashed and I needed to get the job out the door. Funny, I've done this many times by having a unique Keynote Legend on a Sheet with notes connected just to that Legend. (i.e. First Floor Plan and First Floor Play Key Notes...and so on.).

    Keynote legend in more than one place

    I just posted this on another thread, but maybe someone here can help. Today I am getting a related problem - that has never happened before. I use the Call Out Tool and then place the notes in a Keynote Legend. I'll do one per Sheet Layer. The drawing has numbered symbols that relate to the Keynote Legend. Yesterday and today VW decides it wants to keep all notes on one Keynote Legend even though I've specifically selected the Keynote Legend for that Sheet Layer. Then the file got corrupted (I think) and I had to go back to an earlier version (thank you DropBox) and start over. Can anyone lend any help? This is ruining today's productivity. I've corrected the file and used General Notes on some sheets just to get this project out the door! Thanks

    Vive VR Setup

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, if not please redirect me to where that is. I'm considering purchasing an HTC Vive VR headset for my business. With it, showing models to clients would be a lot easier and more immersive (and I could play VR games in my spare time). I've researched how Vectorworks interacts with VR and received varying opinions. Many people recommend exporting my project as a web view, and I've also seen exporting as an object and playing around with Unity. The web view option is a lot easier, but would that work with Vive? I've only seen that with cheaper systems that you put your phone in. If not, what other options do I have? I just want to know how much of a hassle it will be to do this as the headset is a big purchase. I'll probably only use this setup a few times per year, but it would greatly improve the experience.

    Curtainwall Tool and Hidden Line

    This many months later with VW2019, I still don't have an answer. According to this model, I have the same wall type inserted twice - one renders correctly, one did not.
  9. VW As I was running a Batch Convert in VW2019 two things happen. 1. It generates duplicate files with a tag (DESKTOP - DMEIHE1'S conflicted copy...date) 2. Eventually, VW closes I chose a folder with all my projects files (years worth) I paused Dropbox from syncing I paused OneDrive from syncing Any ideas? Thank you

    Issue Data / Title Block Manager - CRASHES!

    Nikolay, I sent you a personal message with a file. Today, VW decided to open the TBM for me with the file in question. I'll test others today too.

    Issue Data / Title Block Manager - CRASHES!

    Here's an update - no good news. I let VW run for who knows how long, to see if the Title Block Manager would open. No luck, but I got a message I've never seen before. It wouldn't close, so I had to reboot...again.

    Open GL problem seeing walls

    I admire your tenacity, but that could prove quite tedious and impossible in my current schedule to get things done. Bravo for your attempt, but I hope VW has a more sophisticated approach.
  13. Come on Vectorworks, why must you change everything for no reason? In 2018 (and earlier perhaps) we could include an issue date in the Title Block Border Settings and have it include it on one sheet, all sheets, all active sheets. Where did that go? When I monkey around with the title block manager it crashes every time. It just freezes with (Not Responding). Then I have to Cntl/Alt/Delete or something to get out of VW and start over. If I stop each time I get lag, crashes, or some other oddity to post on this forum, we'll be talking all day. I'VE GOT WORK TO DO! How can I fix this please? Do I have to type in an issue date for each sheet?

    Open GL problem seeing walls

    I have similar problems, but cannot pinpoint specific instances. Today it was using a floating view pane on my other monitor. Glitches like this were happening, things disappearing like section and elevation markers, symbols disappearing and reappearing. I too have a pretty robust computer. It seems to be a lag in redraw ability on the part of VW. << sigh >>

    Phantom Elements in My Sections

    Matt, thank you. Originally I had the furniture on the other layer. I tend to use one layer per floor, but have many classes. I added the FFE layer to deal with this bug. Thanks again,
