  1. Thanks. I'll give it a try.
  2. I am on Designer 2017 SP4. I tried the restart (several times) and the preference reset (twice) this past weekend. Maybe something in the Vectorworks application has gotten corrupted and I need to reinstall Vectorworks?
  3. Ha! I knew it had to be something simple, since it works in other files. Thanks.
  4. My question is that the view is supposed to automatically change to OpenGL because the Vectorworks Preferences are set to do that. It doesn't happen. I can manually change this setting to OpenGL and it does so, but it's supposed to be automatic.
  5. I have a project with three floor levels. The Story elevations are set up (LL=-8’-8 ¼”, 1st Flr=0’0”, 2nd Flr=9’1 ¾”), w/ Design Layers set the same. When I invoke the Unified View in Top/Plan, all of the plans show up. When I change to 3D (say left isometric) only the active design layer switches to 3D. If I change the other layers to 3D they all show with the same bottom elevation, not stacked as they should be. What am I doing wrong?
  6. I have my Vectorworks Preferences set to display in OpenGL when I change from Top/Plan to 3D, so, when I change to a 3D view, it should display in OpenGL but it does not. What's going on?
  7. When using the Measuring Tape tool, the text is not readable. For some reason it is dimmed to the extent that it is not usable. Currently, I have to use a magnifying glass to make it large enough that is differentiated from the general background. It is a real time-waster and incredibly irritating. Please change this so the text is standard black. Better yet, change it so the user can control the size, color, etc.
  8. The color and density of the text used for the floating data display of the Line Tool, Rectangle Tool, etc., are readable, but when using the Tape Measure Tool, the floating data bar is almost unreadable as the text is very faint. It appears to be almost completely greyed out. I have not been able to find any way to fix this problem. Users should be able to control both the size and color of the text used for the floating data display.
