  1. I don´t know if this already exists, but when im trying to extend a parametric symbol i have to 1.- i have to go ruler, 2.- take the size 3.-click on the object 4.- then input into the info palette 5.- move the object to the position so i could be a lot easier to: 1.- click on the objetc 2.- click on the value you want to modify 3.- draw the value you want to modify on the direction you want not to modify position (if it is a length ask you for two points or ask you for 3 if it´s an angle) thanks a lot

  14. 3 NEW FEATURE SUGESTIONS FOR FAST DRAWING 1.- An amazing feature i saw in another cad to draw very fast is the possibility of input numerical data on info palette with 2 clicks just like the way is done when you input the current distance on scaling objects bot you can do it for EVERYTHING!!! 2.- I insists toggle auto join walls must be on the main window also toggle group view and line thickness 3.- the attributes palette should be in info palette with possibility of making object all class attributes

    Artlantis 4.1: exporting wall component classes

  16. a new interface is urgent 1.- integrate attributes on info pallet with tabs 2.- fast buttons for AUTO JOIN WALLS for example 3.- multiple window view 4.- a totally black interface with black palletes is better for eyes 5.- and easy to find resources pallete

    Toggle auto join walls

    compiled successfully works great thanks!! this is a collection of various toggles complied
  23. I made a 2014 shortcuts version and workspace i think has more logic than the Nemestchek version it groups the tools in lines in keyboard if you want to download the editable vectorworks file go to www.lcda.org on lcda guides
  24. i have VW 2008 and 2009 full versions and 2012 student and i hate 2012 it uses a lot of vram so it's very slow on big 2d drafting and 3d models the faster is 2008 version it's very stupid that upgrades are just for doing software worse.
