    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

    Dear VW, Is there a reason that the "guts" of a curtainwall do not disappear during a hidden line? They used to in 2017. I find this annoying, but perhaps there's another reason that I can't understand. I've tried to manipulate it, but it seems to reveal the inner lines when only the outline should appear. I noticed that once my model went to 2018, the inner lines started to appear. I opened a new file and inserted a new wall from VW library, but it still shows in the inner lines - not how we would show it or how it would appear. Thanks Lee Calisti curtainwall.vwx - file attached

    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.
  10. 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
  11. 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?

    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.

    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,

    Phantom Elements in My Sections

    Matt, Actually in the file I sent you, I moved furniture objects to a layer titled "1-First Floor FFE" because elements were showing up in the section foreground and background, even though I had turned off those classes. You could copy or move them back onto the "1-First Floor" layer and refresh the section (AA or BB).
  18. Is anyone else having a problem with sections and section detail viewports where some components are not accepting the Class Overrides? This is so frustrating as I've used this method for many years now to create details. In this particular case, the component that is the wall stud is not accepting the class override for a black pen line. I'd hate to draw that in or find a work around. I just downloaded SP1 and it still does not correct it.

    Wall Components not showing in Sections

    FYI, I went to a project created in v2018 and opened it for a test. One of the Detail Viewports, created from a Section VP came up with this. Similar problem, but a different wall component. BTW, I'm still having some issues with the problem brought up in this stream. I posted on it again. _)

    Phantom Elements in My Sections

    I opened a project created in 2018 and had this problem again after SP1. An element that was on a separate class was still showing up in a Section and Detail VP despite that class not being turned on in the VP. I had to create a new layer and move it since it was a demo item. Frustrating.

    Matt, I tried to upload via the community board (by clicking on your avatar, but it gave me an upload link. I sent a Dropbox link to you.

    Matt, can you give me a Dropbox account or other means to upload a large file? Thanks.

    Tom, I'm having the same problem. I just discovered it on Friday.

    2019 where I left off

    Ditto same here
  25. JIm It was just a typical situation of how it is to work with VW on my laptop - not just switching between files, but during heavier graphic redraws. My PC does the same, but has also been crashing multiple times daily. The dxdiag is from my PC.
