  1. When I tried to open VW today a message popped up saying "Vectorworks application has stopped working" and the only option is to hit the 'close program' button. Anyone had this experience before? Thanks Brett VW12.5.2 Vista Home Premium
  2. The reshaper tool looks very interesting & we will consider it. Thanks BG
  3. This would be great. Maybe a "scale box" in the OIP? BG
  4. The rectagon does not "only work from the centre" there are 2 modes available - 1 is the "edge placement". This is a useful tool but it does have some limitations. BG
  5. Thanks Gideon, this has been bugging us for ages! Brett
  6. Hi Christiaan Good tip. We have replaced the default content files with ones that suit our office. Cheers BG
  7. Turn off "snap to Loci" in Vectorworks preferences. BG
  8. I have found that there are default hatches & wall styles that load every time you start VW. You can get rid of these by moving/deleting the files from these folders. \VectorWorks 12.5.0\Libraries\Defaults\Attributes - Hatches\ \VectorWorks 12.5.0\Libraries\Defaults\Walls\ Cheers BG
  9. try >tools>options>arrow heads
  10. It does say Vectorworks at the top of the message window. It is happening on numerous PC's in the office. Everyone has Norton Internet Security running which has been installed for some time. Will check to see if there is some adware programe running. BG
  11. Yes, just came back to my computer after leaving it for 20 mins & the message has popped up on the screen. BG
  12. Hi Katie I had just changed the colour of a line and about 5 secs after doing this the message popped up. Regards Brett
  13. Hi Katie Will try and get some indication of what is being done, it is very random and doesn't happen often. It has even popped up when the programe is sitting idle. Brett
  14. Just installed VW12.5 in our office and everyone is getting the following error message. The specified file could not be found or the file name has been incorrectly specified (failure on attempt to open file) This message just pops up occasionaly when doing nothing and after hitting Ok, goes away without seeming to cause any problems. Is this anything to worry about? Cheers BG VWA12.5 WinXP
  15. Have set the default arrow head to be an open type (Tools > Options > Arrow Heads) and this is reflected in the attribute palette - but when a line is drawn the arrow head in the attribute palette changes to a solid filled arrow. Classes are not set to "use at creation" so it is not classes that are doing this. How do you get an open arrow to be the default? Thanks BG VWA12.5 WinXP
  16. This is still very high on our wishlist. BG
  17. This is also going to cause problems for users in NZ. Stairs/ramps always have arrows pointing up. I guess the arrows can be manually drawn. BG

    Polar Array

    I want to draw rafters in section on a curved roof. Is there a way to do a polar array and specify the distance between rafters, the number and the radius? Or is there another way? Thanks BG VWA11 WinXP
  19. Hamma, I agree that this would be a great option to have. BG
  20. We would love this feature added. BG
  21. Our office is running VW11.0.1 with no problems. We did install 11.5 on a couple of PC's, but have reverted back to 11.0.1 due to stability problems. After using 11.5 for a while, I can say that there are no major improvements that will make you more productive than using 11. We also like to keep up to date, but are waiting for further maintenance releases of V12 to come out. BG VWA11.0.1 WinXP
  22. Everyone here would love to see the ablity to select objects that are stacked on top each other. We currently use all sorts of work-arounds and "sending to the back" is not always desirable. We have tools for moving or copying selected items from a remote reference point. I think these tools came from Ozcad. They should be integrated into standard VW. BG
  23. When an item is locked I wish that it couldn't be copied. You shouldn't be able to do anything to a locked item except snap to it. BG

    Worksheet hell

    I agree with your comments. The worksheets do need a major improvement to make them more user friendly. Have you looked at Ozcads "Worksheet on drawing" add on? It's only $20 US and provides some nice functionality that standard VW doesn't. BG

    splay wall

    We don't have v12 so can't comment too much, but this seems like a perfect example of a "new feature" added to VW that doesn't work properly. Are the new tools not fully tested prior to release? Obviously not. This sort of problem is why we are very hesitant to upgrade until maintenance versions are released. BG
