  1. We had the same issue with section viewports not showing information correctly in 2018. It was on files converted from 2017.  It didn't occur on every file converted, but we reverted back to using 2017 on the problematic files as we couldn't find a work around to fix the issue & didn't want to spend any more time trying to fix it.


  2. Tried on VW2018 and nothing shows up at all with the Vehicle Swept Path tool.  The path line is there, it's blank in top plan view, but visible in a 3D view, but no vehicle outline is displayed.


    The Driving Curve also doesn't show the vehicle outline, but does if you choose 'Custom' as the vehicle type and enter the vehicle sizes manually.


    What is the difference between the two tools?


    They both don't seem to be functioning correctly.  I did try these some time ago with the same results and gave up on trying to use them.

  3. Jim, can you confirm this is a bug please.  I don't think it matters if a simple or complicated way is used to create an object, if it can be created, then VW should display it.  I just wanted a quick way to create a hollow box with no fill. I don't consider extruding lines complicated.



    Gadzooks, I've been using the 'choose files' button to upload an image.

  4. Is there any update on whether back referencing is going to be added in 2018?  We were requested recently by a Council processing one of our Building Consents to include back references on all details.  This took considerable time and of course, they are all manually added, so no automatic coordination.

    This doesn't seem like a major to implement.

  5. Hi


    We are using project sharing on a fairly large residential project. The file is currently around 100 MB and the project file is saved on our NAS drive.


    We only have 2 working files, but we are noticing a 3-4 second lag when even doing the most minor drawing changes, and the information bar at the bottom of the screen says 'waiting for project file'.


    Is a setting we can try, to avoid the lag?  Working on the file now is painful.



  6. Just realised that the printer setup scale also affects the placing of text using text styles, and placing hatch patterns.  If the printer scale is set to 50%, they are all double the size.

    Be preferable not to have the printer scale affect drawing, but at least we know why the odd behaviour now.  Been annoying us for a long time.

  7. Hi

    No, it's nothing to do with the scale of the design or sheet layers.  The dimension text size is being controlled by the scaling in the Printer Setup which is unwanted behaviour.

    See attached.
