  1. I do agree with @GatRed, this is a key functionality used in many design stages (architecture)
  2. Thanks @Tamsin Slatter, I had thought about but it looks like the "Area" OIP data I am referring to is not among the "customizable" items available in the "Space settings / Advanced settings". In the meantime I submitted this to our local distributor tech support as well, and it has been forwarded to VW (via bug report I guess, thanks @Pier Luigi @Zeno).
  3. Hello everyone, In VW2021 - Space tool - OIP the "Area" field seems missing. Quite a big issue for us at the office, since we were used to quickly check there areas sum ups (multiple selection of space objects) both for space planning studies in early stages and for quantities check in DD and construction stages. Any suggestion? I am aware it is possible to extract data info in sheets or convert space to polygons and polylines... but the Area field is/was a very useful tool for quick selections/checks. Thanks in advance for any reply!
  4. Thanks @Pat Stanford for your kind and prompt reply. Yes I did. Here running 2021 SP2 (Build 574483) localized italian on macOS 11.1 (20C69). My target: having a top/plan view in a SLVP where the "lean concrete" component is not showing (lean concrete class "not visible") while I need to have it correctly rendered/visibile in model&sections.
  5. Hello, In Top/Plan view - both in DL and in SLVP - slab components are visibile even when component class is set to invisible. In 3d views everything seems to work as expected. Is this working as designed? I am running VW2021 SP2 on Mac OS Big Sur. Attached both video & vwx file. Thanks in advance for any help!

  6. @Matt Panzer I might be out of topic here - I apologise for it - but do you know if there is any way to force multiline text in tags, as in the attached example? I very often need to duplicate tags, providing an "unlinked/manual" version (e.g. when modelling 3d windows which I am not able to model with the door/window tool). In that case, to avoid the "flipping" issue shown by @genie, a multiline text box is needed or some kind of spacer (e.g. the <br> html tag). Currently the only workaround I found is to combining text box width and font size, but this leads to many possible graphic issues (e.g. when scaling text). Thanks in advance all the work you're doing (smart markers are such a good tool!). MULTILINE TAGS.vwx
  7. hi @genie not sure mine is the right way to fix it, but here attached your file edited. This has happened to me in the past also with text in symbols and tags, and I still remember a night before a deadline spent trying to understand (and fix) a last-minute potential big fail due to mirrored information/symbols. When the position of the text (top-bottom) has semantic relevance (e.g. for windows dimension in some countries), using one or two text boxes and controlling text alignment is crucial in my experience. A question for @Matt Panzer: is there any other way to force a new/multiple line in dynamic text (e.g. section line, markers, tags etc.)? VW2021 SECTION LINES ISSUES.vwx
  8. This is a (very frustrating and quite old) bug
  9. To avoid “sheet” and “drawing no.” switching when “auto rotate” is selected, pay attention to the “sheet” and “drawing no.” text box settings: it might be related with its vertical alignment and with the fact that both values are in the same box (which mirrors on its center when rotated) instead of being in separate text boxes (so they don’t switch places)
  10. I do agree, this is a great improvement for localized versions usability. Well done!
  11. We run and tested both versions at the office, localized and international (US), with no difference. I’ll share with our distributor and submit as bug via VW website. Thanks again for your reply.
  12. Thanks @michaelk for your kind reply. This is very strange, I double checked but I am not able to find any misconfiguration. This is working as expected in VW2020 but not in VW2021 (attached here both versions). Furthermore I get more inconsistency with horizontal bars (showing, but with incorrect size, as in the image below). VW2020 railing.vwxVW2021 railing.vwx
  13. In VW2021 SP1 the Railing/fence tool seems to fail to create/represent flat-shaped vertical frame bars (while horizontal frame bars are behaving as expected). I tried both on a new file and on an existing converted one, where bars are simply not represented. Should I report it as bug? Screen Recording 2020-10-31 at 18.11.54.mov
  14. @_c_ wow, thanks a lot, this is very useful: clipping/adding also works with slabs, avoiding the "blind editing effect" when in Slab Editing Mode @zoomer.
  15. Hi @JuanP & VW, I do really appreciate all the effort made both for 2021 and for the design day. Here are my questions, all related to VW Architect: Is VW planning to improve consistency and shaping capabilities of slabs, roofs, roof faces, hardscapes, slab drainage (e.g. making non-horizontal ramps/slabs possibile)? Is VW planning to extend wall and component joins capabilities to non-2dplan environments? How VW plans to develop in future the most common BIM tools (walls, slabs, stairs, windows/doors, etc)? Is VW moving towards a shaping-friendly attitude (e.g. structural elements, walls) or towards a data-input approach (e.g. the current stair tool, lot of inputs to be inserted before getting a shape) Is there any plan to simplify and increase consistency - maybe even merging - of polylines and 2d/3d polygons tool? Thanks in advance for listening!
