  1. In 2018, we have to live with the issue where items often do not update on screen after being moved etc until the screen is refreshed in some way. Has this issue been resolved in 2019 SP3?
  2. Hi Mark Can you elaborate on what the issues are with the section viewports? We were thinking of upgrading to 2019, but might not now as we use section viewports a lot. Thanks
  3. @line-weight We are doing the same as you. Staying with 2018. There just seems to be far too many issues with 2019 to risk upgrading. We were going to upgrade when SP3 comes out, but will more than likely skip 2019 altogether.
  4. Have you tried turning off the Number Lock on the keyboard?

    Sloping Floors

    We have also done this by creating a nurbs surface for say the bottom side, duplicating this and moving it up the required thickness, then using the Loft Surface tool to create a solid.
  6. Could you use Patterns instead of colours? We use Patterns for different grey tones, but they could be used for lines also. Just a thought.

    Object Update

    Following on...when placing a symbol, the symbol does not show up until the screen is refreshed.

    Object Update

    I have a issue with modifying some objects where the change does not show until the screen is refreshed by zooming in/out etc. This is with the latest SP in VW2018. Is this a known issue, and resolved in 2019? In the attached example, a rectangle is resized using the OIP. You can see the ghost image of the modified shape but the original shape remains on screen until refreshed. It's more of an annoyance, but it would be preferable if this behaviour wasn't there.

  9. It would also be really good, when any viewport is linked to another viewport/sheet, when creating a PDF set of drawings, it automatically creates a link, so you can just click on the drawing title label it and it takes you to that viewport/sheet.
  10. It would be good if individual keynotes could have their formatting changed. i.e font, size, bold, italic, underline etc

    space tool sludge

    @JMR We tried using the space tool but as you mentioned, it is far too slow to use productively, and creates all sorts of lag with the drawing file, even on a blank file. It use needs to be instantaneous with no noticeable lag or delay. Hopefully this has been fixed in 2019, but it doesn't sound like it has.
  12. It would also be good if wall components heights (i.e. shape) could be adjusted individually too.
  13. Hi. We've actually found that it doesn't affect our work. In reality the top plates of walls are usually flat anyway so it kind of mirrors how walls are built. But you're right, there is no way to get the tops of walls angled to match whatever you are fitting them to unless the wall runs parallel with the object slope.
  14. Good example from Carmelhill, we would far prefer that some of these existing tools get updated so that they are usable rather than adding any new features. A properly functional HVAC tool would be very useful.
  15. One thing to note, when walls are 'fitted' to objects, their top surface always remains horizontal, i.e. if a wall is running perpendicular to a slope, the top of the wall won't be sloped to match the object. The slope of the wall will follow the object slope but the top surface of the wall will remain horizontal. So you usually end up with slightly odd corner junctions which is what it looks like you are experiencing.
