  1. Someone in the "The Project Sharing - Where are we?" thread mentioned that hosting shared files on a third party server and other files on an on-premises server is not a functional way to work. I'd argue that a hybrid approach to file storage/sharing is the way most people work, irrespective of the profession. The Dropbox LAN sync feature bridges the gap between cloud and on-prem quite nicely. This topic, along with a full year of a global pandemic under our belts, raises good questions about different ways to work on project files with a project team in various locations. I realize it's only recently been released, but with the advent of VW Project Sharing with synching on Vectorworks Cloud Services (VWCS), do users have any in-the-wild reports yet about stability or how much Project Sharing on VWCS differs from their Dropbox or OneDrive experiences? Do any users have any pros/cons they want to share on the below platforms? Maybe a brief Good/Better/Best comparison? Dropbox OneDrive VWCS If I'm not mistaken, all platforms use delta synch, so that somewhat levels the playing field. Some real world feedback on cloud file sharing services with Vectorworks reduce the learning curve for some project teams. Cheers!
  2. It would be great to see OpenGL texture rendering made available for the VW Viewer. That said, exporting to 3D PDF retains the textures, the saved views and allows the user to adjust perspective and lighting in their respective PDF viewer.
  3. I'm observing a repeatable VW performance hit with particular tools and processes in VW2019SP6 and 2020SP5 with an open VPN connection running win Win10 Pro. Can anyone comment on the below scenarios? With a VPN connection open and working/saving locally, using the Publish tool can take minutes. Disconnect from the VPN, publish from the same local file and the Publish tool takes seconds. With a VPN connection open and working/saving locally, modifying Space Objects is considerably slow. Disconnect from the VPN and modify the same space objects in the same local file and there are no issues. Thanks.
  4. Placed on a sheet layer viewport annotation, this Data Tag can be modified to pull standard and custom data from the Window PIO for a particular type of window schedule. Window Schedule Data Tag.vwx
