  1. This has been my experience as well.
  2. @Selin, Interesting. I don't know why that's even on, (or how to turn it off actually) I haven't had time to even look at it. I did notice some weird new geometry that showed up in my template file with 2020 but hadn't had time to investigate.
  3. I have studio too.... I don't mind everyone having the same version, makes a lot of sense from a development standpoint. I would be somewhat surprised if VW didn’t do something similar in the future.
  4. Interesting. I'm haven't made the transition to R21 yet, Some of my plugins haven't been updated for it yet. So this is occuring in R20 for me.
  5. I submitted a bug report. Just curious if anyone else has been able to confirm.
  6. Box is indeed checked: Saving the file as 2019, and re-exporting from 2019 works as desired. I was liking 2020 pretty well so far, but that's a bit of a show stopper in my workflow.
  7. No matter what I do, symbols are exported as individual geometry. Anyone else?
  8. This 100%. I couldn't quite put into words what I was feeling since his departure, but this is exactly how I feel about it. For me the seemingly apparent lack of a "man-on-the-inside" feeling around here has made it far less compelling to visit as frequently. And I know that there are many staffers that make appearances on here. and help out. But we all know Jim was a fixture you could almost guarantee a response from, and it was rarely riddled with company speak. In many ways, to us, he was the end-user advocate that made people felt heard and could run things up the appropriate channels. The voice/human touch of a large company. I think we all miss it. I also have no idea who I'm gonna drink/BS with at Design Summit 2020 now. 🙂
  9. I wish I could say that it's hard to believe that some sort of self-service activation/deactivation portal hasn't been put into operation in the 5 (quickly approaching 6) years since the original post. But, in general, seems par for the course from what I've seen. I'm not sure why this is such a hard concept. I don't know about everyone else, but 9-5, M-F isn't exactly how the Entertainment Industry rolls. I haven't completely written off VW 2020 yet, and actually have a tiny bit of (probably misguided) hope that it's possible this year. Solely based on Cinema 4D R21's new Adobe style login system. (Of which Nemetchek is also the parent company) Though I know full well both Maxon and Vectorworks operate completely independently from one another. In any case something needs to happen here. Machines crash, Laptops get stolen, usually at the most inopportune time, and an immediate replacement is required (sometimes it might even be a rental just to get you through to the purchase/repair whatever) and there is a pretty good chance that doesn't always fit in to the usual tech support hours when you need to reset your activations. (of which the limit is stupid anyway, if nothing else make it so 2 can be activated, one in use at time and it auto deactivates the oldest one if a new one comes on.) I'm also somewhat concerned that @PVA - Jim was the only real end-user advocate regularly on these boards, reading these things, and sending them up the chain. And if people in the know are reading these things, lurking in the shadows, an update would be really nice.
  10. Right! I really want to read "All tools/modules/processes are 100% multi-threaded now, we'll use every core you got."
  11. I take it, this is the "tease" part:
  12. This is what is stupid about the tool right here. Having seating sections selected and opening the numbering tool it defaulted to this. Why on earth, if only one thing is checked doesn't the tool automatically highlight the checked section. This is how I bone myself on the regular.
  13. If I'm not mistaken this is exactly what the Data Tag is for. But it has to attach to an object, such as a "space" or whatnot to obtain the info the tag displays.
  14. My complaint with the whole new new(ish) numbering tool is just the fact that it's so easy to inadvertently highlight an unintended field blue and not realized you edited the numbering information for the wrong field until you get unexpected numbering results.
  15. You might double check that you have unit number highlighted blue on the left column when you enter "1". I've had the wrong field auto-highlighted, or inadvertently bumped the selected up to the wrong field bone me numerous times. It's pretty easy to do the way that tool is laid out.
  16. Yes, it's under Spotlight>Rigging>Replace Truss / Replace Truss Type. I've only used them once but they were completely unintuitive and it was a miracle I got it to work at at. For example, using it to replace some 20x or something, with tomcat 12x12 you have to tell it to change the type first, then replace the truss, but by my recollection when you tell it to use the Tomcat 12x12 truss, it lumps both Spigotted and Bolted together, and the tool doesn't tell you which one is which, it just double lists all available truss and you have to guess if you picked spigotted or bolted. It's such a garbage tool it would almost certainly be faster to re-draw with the new symbol. You might be able, however, to (if it's the same size just a different symbol) convert the current truss to a symbol (Braceworks>Convert Truss To Symbol) replace the symbol with the correct one then Braceworks>Convert Symbol To Truss.
  17. Interesting to note they mentioned Maxon and more specifically Redshift (GPU render engine now owned by Maxon) which is currently NVIDIA only.
