  1. Hello all, I have several design layers that have viewports referencing different elements in from an external file. Everything looks good and works well, until I restart Vectorworks.Then those viewports have disappeared. Sometimes I can just "update" the reference files, and they will reappear. Other times, the viewport are just gone and I have to re-setup the reference viewports. What is going on here? This never used to happen before 2019. Is this a glitch or am I doing something wrong?
  2. Hello all, When I print drawings, even at 1/8" sale, the hoist symbols are tiny. And to keep my drawings looking clean, I don't want to resize the text only. Is there a way to scale to hoist symbols, themselves, to be bigger in the vwx file?
  3. Ha... That was totally it. Thank you, sir.
  4. Is there a way to re-organize the hoist worksheet data based on alphabetical order or coordinates? Every other worksheet I've ever seen has the buttons to set the parameters for the column at the top of each column.
  5. I'd like to quickly shift between the classes & layers tabs. Does anyone know if there are is a keyboard shortcut to toggle between tabs on the Navigation Palette?
  6. I don't see any delete option in the context menu when right-clicked. How did you solve this?
  7. Hi JimW, Thanks for responding. Here's the file I just started working with. Let me know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks for all your help. SkatePark.vwx
  8. I switched to fundamentals to do a video tutorial, and reset all preferences, just as the video suggested. However, when I try to use trim mode of the fillet tool on two adjacent (straight) edges of a polygon, the action is blocked and a message at the lower right corner of the document says "the fillet tool can only be used on adjacent curves." I know this action used to work, I've used it many time. What is going on?
  9. Hi all, This may be wishful thinking but.... How can I attach automatic ordinate dimensioning to a symbol? In other words, just like the motor tool in spotlight, I'd like to place a symbol in the document and have the x & y coordinates automatically display in the symbol classes which could be made visible, or not. And, the origin would be another custom symbol which I could place anywhere in the document. Is there a way to do accomplish this when building the symbol? How did they do this accomplish this with the motor tool in spotlight?
  10. What is the difference between copy-paste and duplicate? And do the differences only matter depending on exactly what you're replicating?
