  1. Anyone from Bristol (or South West) going to the Vectorworks Roadshow in Manchester 5th November? Be good to either car share or just meet up there and say hi ūüôā I would consider going up the day before and staying the night
  2. First of all sorry for my rubbish title, could think what to write!! So in VW2017 when editing your viewport crop you could see (in grey) what was outside of your crop, I find this useful. I have noticed however that in VW2018 this doest seem to happen? Is it a feature that just needs to be turned back on? I have (hopefully) attached two images to show what I mean. Thanks in advance.

    Room Name & crash

    Hi all, I've created a drawing where I've used the 'Room Name Simple' tool to name rooms give their floor levels. This file was fin while inserting these and was fine when I used the file yesterday but today as soon as I click on the room name tag to either edit it, move it or delete it my VW19 crashes - the laptop also sounds quite loud (the fan) while its crashing. I'm unfortunately using Mojave as its a new laptop and that's what it came with - stupid me forgot to check first (although I shouldn't have too really!!) Any tips on how to get around this, and will this be solved with the new service pack when its available? (I really hope SP3 is coming soon!) NOTE - while typing this my Vectorworks has come back to life.....but that took sometime - usually I would force quit it and start again but seems if I just leave its ok - but for how long that took I can't do that every time. Many thanks Here is my computer stats (updated my profile but signature has stayed the same) Vectorworks 2019 (SP2) MacBook Pro 15" 2018 MacOS Majove 10.14.3, 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 32GB 2400 MHz DDR4 Radeon Pro 560X 4096 MB Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

    Drawing registers

    Hi all, I'm trying to create a 'clever' drawing register. I've created a worksheet data object and its on a sheet; looks great etc. However when I change the name of a sheet for example it doesn't update on the worksheet - I have tried recalculating it. This is also the same with adding revisions. I have my own sheets set up with title blocks that all seem to work fine. I've looked online for videos/explanations with no luck. Can anyone point me in the right direction/give me some pointers? Example.vwx

    Drawing registers

    I kind of gave up to be honest. It was a busy period when I first raised the issue so I have been continuing with using excel to create my drawing registers. (luckily we're a small office; only me producing drawings!) But now there are some more answers here I shall have a read through and try again.

    VW 2019 crashing

    I believe there are issues between the Mojave & VW19. Maybe call tech support - they're always helpful.

    viewport update crashes VW19

    Hi all More often than not when I update a viewport or all viewports my VW 2019 SP1 crashes. Its getting very frustrating now. Finding myself saving my work before I update viewports just incase but occasionally I do forget! (my autosave is set at every 5 minutes but that doesnt always seem to happen!) Hoping for an easy fix. Its not a large or complicated file either. (52.2mb)

    viewport update crashes VW19

    Hi Tim Sorry I've been meaning to update my post. I have spoken with technical support UK and George has sorted it out; fresh install I think. Do you still want to take a look at the file incase?
  10. Hi Is any one from South West England going to the Design Day in London 2nd October? I'm considering it and thought it was worth checking and sharing a lift with someone - or even just getting the train there together. (I haven't been to London on my own before nor travelled by train alone!)

    I was hoping this would be in 2019 also :(

    Vectorworks Design Day‚ÄĒLondon

    Yes now I have done more research you're right Bristol to Paddington is very simple. I just need to convince my employer that its a good idea now. Bristol would make a fantastic venue for the South West yes. As you say it will be expensive, hopefully be worth it. Be good to meet you all if we all do go.

    Vectorworks Design Day‚ÄĒLondon

    Ah I love Bristol, nothing scary here. I've been to London a couple of times but with others. Just wondered about getting lost! My partner goes all the time and says its so easy to get around. Just thought if anyone was driving (which I imagine would be a silly thing to do) a lift share makes sense

    Drawing registers

    I cant actually insert the formula into the required box (see attached screenshot) as the box to type in wont let me type. So maybe your example might be helpful!

    Ok thank you. I will take a look and have a go myself first. Thank you for all your help and time.

    Drawing registers

    So I've created a new title block following Jonathan's youtube video (as mentioned above) and have added some revisions to see if it works and then created the Sheet revision log worksheet instead. This works fine but I much prefer the layout of the revision history sheet - this looks like a drawing register as I'm used to seeing them but it won't update with my revisions. I've uploaded my test file. Test.vwx

    Drawing registers

    I've just had a play with a standard one and cant quite get it to work 100% - I'm watching your video on youtube about the VW 2018 title block and am editing the standard sheet border to suit and still cant get the revisions to come up on the sheet. There is nothing in the formula box - what should be there?
  18. nikihoops

    Drawing registers

    Um I'm not sure? The title block was half set up when I started with this company and I've been adding to it and amending. There is a file attached to my original post which has the title block in.

    Drawing registers

    Well that seems pretty pointless! Might as well create the register in excel. I thought the idea would be that the register would update as I add revisions/issues to each sheet - or least update when the sheet name changes. Will wait and see what others say too. Thank you for your response Line-weight

    Blank viewport when rendering

    Hi all So I have a 3D viewport on a sheet layer and it has been was rendered with 'Final Quality Renderworks' since yesterday (it was fine and visible yesterday too). However all of a sudden the viewport is now blank, I've only made changes to the actual model and not the viewports. If I change the render to Open GL I can see the items again. This has happened many many times and different files. Its slowing driving me insane (more so than normal!) Please can anyone help? I'm using Vectorworks 2018 SP3
