  1. Will this new tool be Available in VW 2021?
  2. Night Owl. https://nightowl.kramser.xyz/ Free. Comes with a Menu Bar Icon. Lets you set any app to run opposite of your main settings. There are other apps. Stopped trying them when this one worked
  3. Done to accommodate the Dark Mode on the Mac platform. #SoI'veBeenTold
  4. @Harald Yes...but... VW allows the install on 2 machines. Their activation process remembers your machine log in for 90 days (so I have been told) When a user has a laptop at home and an iMac in the office with their licence number installed and we purchase a new iMac (or laptop) we have had to call VW and "ask for forgiveness" to allow us to install a licence on the new machine. (a third machine for the next 90 days) We only are using the installed software on 2 machines but VW temporarily sees 3 logged machines for about 90 days. #YourMileageMayVary
  5. @livespace josha Exactly. None and Dimension are fixed. Show up in every file. If you delete a class and reassign any objects using that class to the new assignment, the class will vanish. If you then turn around and import a standard symbol again, you get the class back again. Unless your Document Settings are adjusted. Killing Classes and New classes showing up unannounced is also a tracking nightmare when you already have VP's that use the class you want to delete/replace. Not sure that there is an easy "fix" to manage classes because we keep a fairly tight leash on the naming but without fail, someone will copy a symbol from an old file that is drawn with classes not in the current document and the question always comes up, "Where is the thing I just drew in the VP?"
  6. Control them by turning off the Document Preference for Standard Naming... You can set up your own standards if you wish. Not sure why you can't delete classes. If the Class exists in the file, simple right click on the Class in the Navigation Palette and select Delete. If the Class is being used in the document, reassign objects to another existing class.
  7. @Chris Morrison You don't with the PIO. You have to break the PIO into pieces and make a symbol. Probably a good candidate for a wish list item. The legs and pedestal options for round tables are also not quite right.
  8. @rmorris6 Does this happen in a new Blank file or an existing file? Not seeing the crash in either existing or new. Can add, delete, duplicate and rename without issue in the Organization palette. I only have VW 2020 SP2 - Architect however (519614) Didn't know SP3 was out yet. That may be your issue?
  9. @Marco Zavagno Well, the app is a solution to your original question. Didn't understand your IT constraints. Guess you will have to stay on the Dark side. #MayTheForceBeWithYou ūüėČ
  10. There is a app on the Mac that lets you switch individual apps light or dark. https://nightowl.kramser.xyz/ Free. Seems to work so far. #JusSayin
  11. @mac@stairworks Not seeing the white box that you are. All seem to load up a full view. 2D and 3D seem to be working. REstart VW?
  12. Jonathan, Thanks for the suggestion. What happened was that layers were added after the VP creation and the new layers would not sort in the proper order. Since the VP's are for multiple floors with different layers for some of the VP's, I changed the settings slightly and got a solution. If you uncheck "Layer Visibility" and only have "Layer Overides" selected, it does exactly what I need. Revert the Stacking on one VP, then pick up and then select ALL the VP's and Put Down. ALL of the VP's keep their layer visibility but revert the stacking order. Never would have thought to try this. Thanks for the help. Much appreciated.
  13. Jonathan, Is there a way to do this for multiple VP's? If you select 2 VP's the option goes away, even if the layers used in the VP are the same. I have 12 VP's on 6 sheets and they all are out of order. Hoping there is a quick fix.
