  1. thanks! I will check them out- I use classes for a lot of things but not getting it re doors windows walls etc. thanks again!
  2. I'll try that - I'm not so good with textures classes components etc but it's past time to learn! thanks very much
  3. Is there an easy way to present views with a few different siding colors without replacing all the walls? Just for the client to visualize and choose, project is nearly finished, and I'd like to do some perspectives in open GL with the colours they like. thanks!
  4. Great, thank you! I generally use the new version, once installed, just bc it's there and I didn't know any better. So will take your advice with great relief! and I will send the file to support as well. thanks again for the help.
  5. I just asked this in another thread, but it might be worth a new one. I just updated to 2020 Architect, this morning, from 2019. I thought it had to do with a faulty installation, but I can open some files but not the one I needed to work on. It crashes while opening - it says 82% generating Resource previews, then it shuts down. repeatedly. I tried the suggestion in the other thread to set navigation graphics to "best compatibility", no luck. also, should I delete VW2019? my system: wdws 10pro - 1809 intel corei7-4770 cpu @3.40ghz 16.0 GB RAM 64bit os x-64-based processor thanks
  6. help - similar problem, it sounds like? just updated to 2020 Architect, this morning, from 2019. I thought it had to do with a faulty installation, but I can open some files but not the one I needed to work on. It crashes while opening - it says 82% generating Resource previews, then it shuts down. repeatedly.

  7. OK, classes were the culpirit (but I'm positive they were all on). righhhht.... railings still an issue. thanks
  8. hi, this may have been covered - I have found a few similar posts but nothing exactly this problem: stairs, visibilities on VP's: defined upper floor and lower floors as seen in stair settings below, from 2nd floor DL. they are visible in the DL of both main and 2nd floor, but not the 2nd floor VP. (also visible in main floor VP). class is not the problem - all are on. should I copy the stairs to 2nd floor DL so it's duplicated? (I have done that before just to get the job done, or draw in 2d, so I can keep going, but don't think it's the idea intended with the stair tool) also, the hand rail is set to inside only but shows up both sides, that's secondary to this visibility thing and too much time spent already to figure that out.... thanks for any help!! ps is there a good video tutorial for stairs that covers stuff like this?
  9. Hi, thanks - did the type=door, doesn't change it. how do I remove the door record from those 2 doors?
  10. thanks Pat - I couldn't access add surface, but edit group was the thing!!! simple. thanks!
  11. I have 2 doors on my schedule that I don't want to show. in the oip the "on schedule" box is not checked, and I have tried checking then un-checking... what am I missing? in the criteria for the door schedule, record = door = present, and the specific DL's are chosen. all that is perfect. I don't see another option to choose ALL doors vs only ones that have the on sched. box checked - which makes no sense. thanks for any help!
  12. I know this is posted somewhere, and that it will be a "duh" moment to get the solution, but I can't seem to find the thread. I have clipped off parts of intersecting roofs (still having trouble with connect/combine - that's another discussion), the issue is that I need to restore a small part of one roof - how to do that? it's a pia to re-create the roof, but it might come to that... I know it's simple, like an ungroup command and re-group after, or something..... thanks in advance for any help !
  13. hi Wes, this is probably a no brainer... where is the complete list as you show to set window parameters? my list of classes has no level of detail like this - it has "door class" and no sub categories, same for windows, except for " windows main"... I had to add the window and door class, probably because I used a previous file which didn't have them. is there a resource to import all the standard available classes with their sub categories to fix this? I don't even know how to screen shot my list to show you. many thanks from lisa
