  1. Really like this plug-in.....extrude along path works, but I think this plug-in is much easier to use! Worked well for skirtings, cornicing/ coving & dado.
  2. ...just downloaded the free 'frames' plug-in from AFDesign... https://andreafacchinello.wordpress.com/summary/ A very nice tool; simple, easy to use. Does exactly what you'd like it too - albeit I did have to look up the meaning of passepartout Definitely recommend it if you want to show artwork in 3d...will be checking out the 'baseboard' plug-in for sure!
  3. This tool looks fantastic!. Please can we get this integral to VW?!
  4. Really like the windows (and doors) tool in VW. A real time saving tool and well worth spending a bit of time to set up window styles. Brilliant to be able to quickly place basic windows and then add more detail as project develops. The representation and control of sash windows is very good, but a couple of a couple of questions: 1) Anyone know of a simple way to show the 'boxes' for sash weights to more accurately represent the windows? 2) Splay wall: I need chamfered opening to walls vertically. Unfortunately it splays the sill (or cill) too, which needs to be flat. Don't think I've ever seen a sloping window sill.. Any suggestions appreciated.
  5. Thanks Tolu, Tried the non-scientific click things on and off and got it to work eventually and it's very good! I find my verbal reasoning lets me down when I read some of the 'help' dialogue information, eg this under 'automatically update out of date references during file open' option box (in 'edit preference'): Does this mean 'update resources during file open'? Maybe re-word the dialogue information and you wouldn't need the 'help' text?!
  6. Thanks for the advice Tolu. Finding it rather over-complex to reference in files so resorting to copying in info. from other files. Is this a function that needs improving (or is it just me)?
  7. More certain than ever this is a bug - just edited a chain line dimension (in viewport annotation) and it turns on the 'mm' display setting for a drawing in which it is set to off?! Is this happening to anyone else?
  8. Thanks for advice Kevin, I deleted & recreated title blocks. Now working ok. I think in hindsight I may have brought in old style title blocks (by copy and paste) from VW2017 which maybe had a bearing on things?!
  9. ....plus, why is the sheet project data specific to each sheet now. so you have to set it on each sheet in the title block manager?! In VW2107 you set it once for all sheets in a drawing?? Very strange or am I missing something?
  10. Why, in a a new VW 2018 drawing, when I go to add a first revision (A), is is it defaulting to Rev.D? There are no previous revisions to delete...?! Any ideas...?
  11. Aha, found it! Tick box in 'Edit reference' palette in 'organization/ edit'. Now why didn't I see that before?!
  12. ....I've added a drawing reference and then going to 'create a design layer viewport' to display the required reference file information, but 'select source' command is inactive...I must be missing something: any ideas?!
  13. Great! (anything like an 'add to favorites' so you can quickly refer back to useful posts)?!
  14. .. this has disappeared of late - has it moved or changed function?
  15. Thanks, that's very useful to know. Mark
