  1. For those experiencing windows files that keep reverting to read only: https://appuals.com/how-to-fix-folder-keeps-reverting-to-read-only-on-windows-10/ I had to use command prompt to remove the folder attributes. A real pain in the neck, but it solved the issue.
  2. You are correct! Now I have a new issue, where windows is not saving the change and reverts back to read only...🤦‍♂️
  3. I am having an issue saving customizations to the built in Plug Ins in VW Spotlight 2020. Specifically, I am trying to add cable options to the cable tools. Have done this in the past (on VW2019) without issue, only 2020 seems to be giving me problems. Once I close the plug in manager, nothing seems to save. Any thoughts?
  4. I did... still not functioning. Also, re-ran the SP2 installer and still no luck.
  5. Ditto! I am having the same issues. These problems have been around way too long not to have been addressed by the Vectorworks team. My 'make-shift' solution is adjusting my custom render settings slightly. For instance: adjusting "Curved Geometry" from medium to low. Its not perfect, but it keeps me from rebooting.
  6. I also use excel spreadsheet. I want to create a worksheet that can run it for me in VWX, but I'm afraid it will be more trouble than its worth.
  7. I think the most recent service pack may have solved the issue for me. I got so used to adjusting the curved geometry render settings that I continued to do it, even after it seems the issue was gone... HA! I'll report back if the issue arises again.
  8. I agree with RickR, seems like sloppy work. To be sure, you can check the "Default Instrument Angle" at File > Document Setting > Spotlight Preferences.
  9. I'm having render problems in 2017. When I render any viewport for a second time, the entire viewport turns black. As in a complete black rectangle. I can update the settings in the "background render settings" and it will render perfectly, but only one time. Then I will have to change the settings again, or else the blacked out viewport comes back. Has anyone else run into this? Any tips for fixing it? Corbin
  10. Hey RB, It is not possible to remove the "'xtra" when showing length. Hopefully that can be addressed in future updates. Corbin
  11. Also check the "Dimension" class. I've run into this issue with several of the Elation symbols. Id suggest editing the classes within each of the symbols you use most frequently.
  12. Does anyone know if it is possible to define/customize the cable options presented in the OIP? Im sure everyone can agree the connector types are not exhaustive..
  13. Any news on when we can expect the new human figure tool? I love the tool, but Ive found it much more efficient to use mannequins lately. I'd be very interested in a more realistic human figure tool.
