  1. Hello all Since upgrading to Vectorworks 2024 when i insert doors/windows to my walls the hole's no longer take on the texture settings I choose. It appears that the holes take on the texture of the one of the sides of my wall however! I have brick texture to the left and 'wall paint' to the right. I have changed the 'holes' texture but it keeps the brick from the left side texture option. Screenshot attached - you'll see I have some tiles selected for the holes and it's not showing that - I dont want it tiled, this is just to show as an example of it not working. I'm sure it's a simple fix but I can figure it out!
  2. if you do what Ian above suggested that works. I’ve not had to do it every time I open VW22 but a few times. It’s not a long term fix but it does resolve it for you to carry on and use VW22 in the meantime
  3. Hi Ian, That seems to have worked!! How odd.
  4. Hi all I've spoken with the tech team through my service select and they're looking into it. We tried a couple of things with no luck I will report back if I get any updates.
  5. Ignore the above....BUT after a reinstall the menu bar still isnt working!
  6. I've just uninstalled VW22 as per the above suggestion and now I'm re-installing its saying there isn't enough disk space! I have 80GB free space, the installer says 30GB is needed.... Can anyone help ASAP?
  7. Hi all Just upgraded to VW2022 and I've noticed when I want to change a class colour or line thickness in the viewport nothing changes once I update said viewport. I opened the same file in VW2021 and carries out the same action and it worked fine. Is there something new in VW2022 that doesn't allow this for some reason, or a setting I need to change?
  8. Hi pjjmcc, Whilst the window/door is selected go to your Object info pallet and amend the 'Plan Wall Offset' under the general section. I hope this is what you meant Niki
  9. Just updated my VW2021 to SP2 and the tabs still detach fairly easy.....maybe its me?
  10. is the "dock tabs' option available to you as mentioned above? I notice you are running Catalina too and wondered if thats why my option is greyed out!
  11. The option 'Dock all tabs here' is greyed out on mine so I'm unable to select it, any ideas?
  12. Morning all Every time I insert a door it puts itself on the 'dimension' class. Some of my windows are ok but some not so I've obviously set some up correctly. They are 3D door styles that I once set up to use on all projects. I cant seem to find how to now edit these so that they insert on my chosen class. Any help/advice welcome please.
  13. hi BizGoz Yep I've already tried that and it didn't work.
  14. Hi all, I've read a few topics on the subject and think I have it all covered yet I still cannot see my ID tags on my elevations. I can see them in my plan VP's, they are on a separate class which is turned on for each elevation viewport, I have checked the show 3D option in the OIP for each window/door and I've also checked the display options in the OIP for each viewport.....still can't see the tags. I'm running 2020 SP4 Thanks in advance
  15. Ignore the above please - I've figured it out - my width was set at 0 for the glazing bars!! Sorry But.. How do I get the number of glazing bars to be different in each sash? Say 2no. vertical in on and 1no. vertical in the other?
  16. Hello all, I've recently installed VW2020 and have noticed with the custom sash dialog box in the window settings the tick box for 'include muntins' is gone so therefore I cannot get my glazing bars to show, any ideas?
  17. 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 🙂 I would consider going up the day before and staying the night
  18. 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
  19. Yes it was solved as above. What are you having an issue with specifically? Sorry for the late reply.
  20. 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.
  21. I believe there are issues between the Mojave & VW19. Maybe call tech support - they're always helpful.
  22. 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?
  23. 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)
