    3D Connexion settings migrate to VW 2020

    Hello @halfcouple 1. Try find the configuration files in your 3DConnexion folder. Mine is located here - C:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxWinCore64\Cfg 2. Copy your existing VW2020 configuration file in the folder to somewhere safe, e.g. your desktop. My file is Vectorworks2020.xml 3. Find the configuration file you wish to copy from, in your example, it should be Vectorworks2019.xml. 4. Copy to your desktop as well, and open it using your favorite text editing program. 5. You should be able to find the signature section like below - <Signature> <Name>Vectorworks 2019</Name> <ExecutableName>Vectorworks2019.exe</ExecutableName> <Transport>S80</Transport> </Signature> 6. Change Vectorworks 2019 to Vectorworks 2020, and Vectorworks2019.exe to Vectorworks2020.exe. 7. Change this file name to Vectorworks2020.xml and copy back to the configuration folder: C:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxWinCore64\Cfg 8. Restart your machine and see if your macro setting is back. Let me know if this helps or not.

    Imported image background not transparent

    JPG files don't have the alpha channel that represents the transparent information. If you want to import an image with a transparent background, you have to import .png images. Also please make sure the "Import Alpha Channel" checkbox is checked under the PNG radio button. If the checkbox is grayed out, the image you are importing does not have an alpha channel attached to it.

    Are you using Intel integrated graphics? Do you have a discrete graphics card installed on your machine?

    VP Open GL fixed in 2019

    Don't thank me. :-) I only did a small portion of it. It's really an effort from a great team.

    VW 2019 Display Bug when rotating 3D model

    @bpsabatier Those Marionette doors are definitely the problem. It is located further than our observable universe (1070 times further!!). We are trying to see how and why these Marionette objects are generated and corrupted. So for now, I would avoid using NanaWall doors. Also, one trick you can do to delete these doors is to select everything you want in the view and do an inverse selection. You will see it selects the doors located further away. Then you can execute "edit>clear" with those doors selected. Then you should be able to get the correct fly over back again.

    Hello @bpsabatier, If possible, could you attach the file here or send me through the message? We could inspect the file carefully and identify the problem. Thanks!! Chih-Pin
  10. You can see more multi-core usages almost anywhere, including those listed above, especially transiting from one view to another, entering/exiting editing modes, turning on hidden layers, changing view render mode, turning on multi-view, and now switching between sheet layers.

    Virtual Reality (VR) & (VRaugmented reality)

    I haven't done the experiments on this by myself. But this is another way to reduce motion sickness -- https://www.wired.com/2015/04/reduce-vr-sickness-just-add-virtual-nose/ But no matter what, I believe that motion sickness will still be there unless the headset has some optical magic implemented, something like this -- https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/20/16800474/magic-leap-one-creator-edition-augmented-reality-goggles-announce

    Multi View Panes Default to Split Vertically?

    @Pat Stanfordis correct. The ViewPane and splitter data are saved with the document. So you are able to save your templates with your preferred view pane configurations. But if you do not load from the template when creating a new file, it will create the default pane and splitter configurations. Chih-Pin
  13. Just for the record before we can provide the fix. If anyone runs into the similar issue in MultiView, please try turning on Unified View. This may solve some navigation issues (e.g. zooming) in perspective view with Unified View off.
  14. Hello line-weight, If possible, could you send the file to me so that I can take a look? Thank you so much!! Chih-Pin

    Have you tried python -m pip install pillow? If successfully installed, you can see what version of pillow it tried to install.
