  1. Thanks for this. One class was greyed out and it solved the problem. thanks Thanks for the hint on the screengrab

    Can't select objects created in a layer

    Thanks. I had saved the file again whilst I was waiting for replies and when I did made sure that I did the class visibility option and assumed that had made it work. Now that I have saved and gone back into the file I can see that it wasn't that issue at all. If you don't mind I can send it to you but it does sound like it might be one for vectorworks. Up to you. I've resigned myself to redrawing and using the old design as a grid for speed's sake as I need to deliver this tomorrow.
  3. I created a garden design and am now tweaking amends. Originally I thought the problem was with layer and class visibilities but it is not. When I visit the layer with most of the concept design ion I can see it in grey outline but I can't select or amend any of it. It is appearing in the sheet layer that I created to print the design. Some of the objects (a table and chairs) are showing but the majority of the objects - hardscaping planting etc isn't. I attach a screen grab of the design layer and then the sheet layer to illustrate what I mean. View, design layers and classes are on show snap others and apart from this I can't work out what I have switched on or off to make this happen. When I save as the original file I can select and amend the elements. It is only after I have finished working and I revisit the file to continue working that everything appears greyed out. Is this a bug anyone knows about? Because I am on the student version, I don't appear to get access to the newer versions of the software.

    Can't select objects created in a layer

    Turns out I wasn't such an idiot. So I have saved my original file as another version to revise the design. Whilst I am working on it in the session I can see my old design and modify the elements on it. When I close and come back to it the next day everything is greyed out apart from a couple of elements exactly as shown on the attached files that I uploaded before. The original design is always OK it is only happening on the saved as versions of the files and only happens to the old elements not the ones I create after I have 'saved as'. Is there a bug I should know of?

    Thanks...that seems to be the problem. What an idiot.

    Sheet Layer Printing Issues

    I have VW2017. I had feel set up as 1:50 on A2. I need to print A3 for a meeting first thing, I set the sheet layer up as 1:100 and reset the doc set up to 1:100 and A3. It all looks great on the sheet layer using Viewport to get all the layers in. However, when I print it appears to be printing as A2 despite the printer and the page saying A3. Does anyone have any ideas? I am presenting in 8 hours and Vectorworks put me to the backlights of the queue because I still have a student version of the software. I've attached a pdf of one of the files. Concept 3 Simple.pdf

    Moving Educational Watermark

    I have VW2017 and have just caged the page steep from A3 landscape to A3 portrait and the student watermark is located in the middle and top of my page. Can I move the one in the middle. As you see it's overlaying the design.
  9. I am a student working on Vectorworks 2017. I was working on a file in vectorworks 2016 and have opened it and am now working in Vectorworks 2017 on Mac. If I select any item - text, shape etc - and try to move it using the arrow buttons on the keywboard, it doesn't move the selected item, it throws my view in that direction. As far as I can tell the item is still selected. The view changes in the direction of the arrow.
