  1. Check out this post: http://techboard.nemetschek.net/cgi/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=12;t=000230 That's what I'm talking about. Has this been addressed yet? I'm hoping there could be a way to make text an "exception" to the way the rest of the layer link works. I mean, you often want to see a site plan twice as big, but who ever wants their text twice as big? As for locating the text, it could simply remain anchored (as specified by the Alignment settings on the Text pull-down menu). This would work just like when you select a text object and then choose a different font size. The size changes, but wherever the little locus "x" is (from Alignment) stays put. This would be extremely useful to us. Thanks, CD
  2. We wholeheartedly add our support for a "Rotate 2D view" or "Rotate world" command. Trying to draw elevations upside-down or sideways is driving us nuts. Thanks, CD
  3. Have you noticed any pattern to when it happens? It's kind of a horrible error since it wastes so much ink. The Gimp-Print bug list doesn't seem to have anything on this; maybe I will post on there. CD
  4. Occasionally (usually on documents imported from VW9) we see some of our arcs change into straight lines that run vertically the length of the sheet. This usually happens on arcs that have been duplicated. It happens on both paper output and PDF output as well. We use VW Architect 10.1.2 and Gimp-Print 4.2.5. Anybody else seen this behavior, or any other problems with printing arcs from the above setup? Thanks, Chris
  5. Having a similar issue on the Mac. See my post at: http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=22;t=000206
  6. Using VW Architect 10.1.2 and Gimp-Print 4.2.5: At apparently random intervals, our plots (from an HP 455CA and an HP 430) come out like this: The drawing we plotted is there, but all compressed along the top couple inches of the sheet (along the long edge). The rest of the sheet is full of 100% black with a few thin white breaks in it (running lengthwise). This makes a mess and uses tons of ink. We can basically determine no pattern to when this occurs. I'm not sure whether to blame VW, Gimp-Print, or our network hardware. Has ANYBODY else seen this behavior? Thanks, Chris
  7. We get it mainly when producing large numbers of PDF's (throught the print dialog box) in rapid succession.
  8. This is a serious problem that seems to have gotten worse with either the 10.1 or 10.1.2 release (can't quite recall). I can't make my tools snap to any symbol or plug-in object. All I get is a lot of "Align V" and "Align H" that don't seem to indicate any particular point. Specifically, I'm trying to insert simple columns on a framing plan. I used the wood cut PIO, but couldn't snap to the corners. So I made simple symbols (rectangle with an "x" made of 2 lines) and placed them down only to find I couldn't snap to the corners of them either. A serious pain. Any hints? [MacOS 10.2.6, VWA 10.1.2, Power Mac G4]
  9. Katie, I'm sending an example of one of our files. Also I've noticed that the "broken" saved sheets don't appear in the list of sheets to be edited.
  10. We're having the same problem with a few documents. I think they are all translated from VW 8 or 9, or based on templates from 8 or 9. The saved sheet is there, but unresponisve when you hit it. We are on VWA 10.1, MacOS 10.2.5, G4 workstations.
  11. Yes, it seems to have something to do with the PostScript language. Except I've discovered (despite my earlier post) that it doesn't appear when creating PDF files. Our one non-PostScript printer doesn't show the "speck".
  12. I'm referring to the Layered Document Format for the Apprentice software. I've been sending PDF's to our reprographics service for printing, but they have to convert these. So I'm trying to make the process more streamlined / elegant by sending them a format they can print directly. They use Oce Repro Desk for plotting. It can accept (among others) LDF, VIC, HP-GL, HP-GL-2, HP-RTL. If you know of any drivers for MacOS X that can easily output (or convert to) any of these formats, that would be helpful. Thanks for your help.
  13. Anybody know of a way to output LDF files from VW 10? Or perhaps convert PDF output to LDF? Thanks.
  14. This might seem like a triviality, but it's bugging me. Why can I not use the slash (/) character in VW file names? VWA 10.1, MacOS 10.2.5, G4 Thanks.
  15. My users also report that this most often happens on the trim and offset tools, but one seems to remember it happening with the Measure tool as well.
