  1. Under which menu is the "tile" command found? VW9.5.2 Thanks Brett
  2. Dear Nemetschek Can you add this to the wish list please (hopefully near the top of the list!) The alt selection (rectangular & lasso method) must only select actual objects. Thanks BG
  3. Yes, the same effect does happen with a group. From our point of view it is definitely a bug. Nothing should be selected unless it is crossed. On our version the lasso selection mode works correctly so we will use this method in the future. Is it the same in Version 10? Thanks BG
  4. Draw a largish rectangle and turn this into a symbol - make sure it is un-filled. With the 2D selection tool and the rectangular selection mode enabled, hold the alt key (windows) and select "nothing" inside the symbol - Notice the symbol is selected even though no lines are touched/crossed. Now try it with the lasso selection mode enabled - Notice the symbol is not selected - as it shouldn't be because none of the lines are touched/crossed. This is an annoying bug with the rectangular selection mode. BG VW9.5.2 WINXP
  5. It's probably been said before, but why do rotated rectangles become polygons?. We want to be able to resize the rotated rectangle with the OIP or simply dragging a corner/side. BG
  6. P Retondo Try the "Clone PIO" plug in from Vectordepot to copy settings from one PIO to another similar PIO. BG
  7. Agreed, but I do feel there should be an option in the "eye dropper tool preferences" that could be selected so that the wall attributes are copied. BG
  8. Be nice to have a tool like the eyedropper that picks up wall attributes eg color, fill, width, height, class etc BG
  9. When entering text in to a cell it would be so much better if there was and option to wrap the text. Thanks BG
  10. You can also "right-click" on an empty part of the drawing and choose "deselect all" BG
  11. Thanks for the replies. I definitely downloaded the windows version, but I can't explain why I ended up with a .sit file. I extracted the file on a friends Mac & that worked fine. It's a neat little tool to have. Brett
  12. I have already uncompressed the file (tried it twice) using Winzip & this is the file that was created. Any ideas? Brett
  13. Dear Cloud Hidden This may seem like a basic question. I have just downloaded the script & ended up with a file "hidden line smoothing angle.sit" which I placed in the "plug-ins" folder. I then re-started VW and went to the workspace editor but I can't locate this tool. Where do I find it? It is a "menu" item not a "tool" right? Any help appreciated. Brett
  14. One feature we had in an earlier CAD program that we would like to see in VW is. A "counter" that told you how many items you have selected. I can't imagine this would be very hard to incorporate. Please consider it, as we found it very useful. Thanks Brett
  15. You can put arrow heads on curves but they - open arrow heads, don't look the same as an arrow head on a straight line, and they don't seem to be able to be manipulated. NNA - This needs to be addressed. BG
  16. Some basics for layer linking. When you have linked a layer it comes in "locked" i.e. it cannot be moved, rotated etc. You have to go to the Edit menu and choose "Unlock ". To delete a layer link you do not do this through a menu item. You simply click on the object on the screen and hit the delete key. (must be unlocked) We have found layer linking one of the best features of VW. Hope this helps. BG
  17. It would be great if we could assign a class to the fill/pattern within a wall. We would find this very helpful when layer linking plans & being able to turn off the fill. Is there already a way of doing this? Thanks BG
  18. I would like to know how people set up there framing / ceiling foundation plans etc. The layer linking off the "base plan" from which to draw over seems to be one method. but the control of the line type from the linked plan is impossible?. For example in a "floor framing plan" how does one show the walls under as dashed so as to make the framing layout over clearly represented. I am also aware of "greying" out classes layers etc.. but this is unsatisfactory for copying and reproduction. Any ideas would be much appreciated
  19. We have also noticed this & would prefer the group to only include the actual objects - not the arc centre points. BG
  20. Matthew, while you are suggesting easy ways of drawing... Is there a way of drawing an arc with a defined arc length? I cannot find any tools to be able to do this. The arc length is shown on the OI palette but it is not editable. Brett
  21. Hi Katie Yes, this is what is happening. Thanks for your reply. Brett
  22. When using the unconstrained dimension tool, if you pan (hold the space bar down) in the middle of dimensioning, the tool seems to stop working correctly. Has anyone else experienced this? Using VWA 9.5.1, Win98 Thanks Brett
  23. Hi Katie Thanks for your reply. I want to draw an arc (or curved wall) and be able to specify the radius & the arc length (not the chord length). I have tried the arc by 3 points but I can't seem to get this tool to do that. Regards Brett
  24. It would be nice if there was an additional arc tool - One that allows you to draw an arc and specify it's length. An editable box in the OI pallete that allows you to define it's length after you have drawn it would do.
  25. What is the best way to handle revisions to drawings?
