  1. Hi All, If I delete a lighting instrument and then hit undo, it returns as a Renderworks light as opposed to a lighting instrument. Anyone know what might be causing this? It's happened to me in multiple unrelated documents and is driving me insane. Thanks!
  2. My Info is now below, but I let a co-worker post this--he's running VW2008 Spotlight/Renderworks on Windows XP SP2 with an Athlon 64 3200+ with 1GB of RAM.
  3. I am trying to print directly from VectorWorks to an HP Photosmart Pro B8350. When I try to print most documents, the job goes into the print queue and immidiately dissapears without printing. Some VW documents seem to print fine--there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which ones print and which ones don't. One of my co-workers with an Apple can print to it directly from VectorWorks without a problem. When I print from any other program I have no problems. Any suggestions?
  4. If it helps, the previous version I was using in which it worked was 11.5. A friend of mine who uses the same script told me it stopped working in one of the 12.5 updates.
  5. I have several vectorscripts that run when I change views, mostly so that when I go into a section/elevation/back to plan all of my 3d layers align themselves. For example: DoMenuTextByName('Standard Views',4); DoMenuTextByName('Align Layer Views',0); Until I started using 2008, this worked fine. Now I get a vectorscript error: Error: no name DOMENUTEXTBYNAME - Menu cannot be found. Align Layer Views I can't figure out what's wrong with the script, if anything. Has something been added in 2008 that makes this easier so maybe I don't have to bother with vectorscript at all?
  6. Is there a way when rotating an instrument in 2d, (i.e. by hitting cmd-L or tool --> rotate --> rotate) to make it rotate around the center of the symbol (as determined in the edit symbol screen), as opposed to rotating around the center based on any label information? I hate rotating lights and having them no longer be on 1'6" centers or even on the pipe anymore. If there is not a way to do this currently, may I suggest it for VW 12?
  7. Anyone else have an opinion?
  8. All that i've gotten from this thread thus far is that VW9.5 will run in OS10.3, it will just cause printing issues.
  9. Thank you. That's exactly what I was looking for.
  10. I always save as a PDF before I print (i'm using 9.5.3)--since I don't actually use print center out of Panther, can I still use 9.5? Or will there be errors with that as well? Has anyone tried saving to a PDF out of VW 9.5 in panther? Any response is appreciated.

    Stair Tool

    I am using the stair tool in the scenic elements pallete, and I am wondering if it is possible to make the railings have posts going from them to the stairs. As it stands, when i turn on the railings they float 3' above the stairs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
