  1. Hi, This issue started yesterday afternoon after a few hours of working on a simple building with basic walls. One of the walls just disappeared and when I attempted to re-draw it with all of the same specifications that I had used earlier in the session the issues listed below began to occur. 1. When Show/Snap/Modify other classes is turned on all walls are able to be selected in both ISO and 2D Plan view. When Active Only classes are turned walls are able to be selected in ISO view only. 2. All walls that have been selected or edited in 2d top plan view begin to randomly disappear in ISO view with Active Only classes are turned on. 3. The newly drawn wall is unresponsive to height adjustments and the OIP reflects correct dimensions but the wall itself is still at 0' high in both Active Only and Show/Snap/Modify others class specifications. 4. When switching between Active Only and Show/Snap/Modify others the newly draw wall will suddenly land a different location at be 5000' long. I'd call it a ghost in the machine but i think it may be worse than that. macOS Catalina Version 10.15.5 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Radeon Pro 575 4 GB
  2. That did the trick! Thanks!
  3. Hi Dave, It's a 2d object mimicking a ground plane. Stephanie
  4. Hi, I am encountering issues and inconsistent results when rendering my viewports. Attached is one viewport in openGL and the second in final quality RW. Any suggestions on what is causing the blocking out in some areas and the white square behind my human figures? Thanks
  5. Hi there, I am having inconsistent results when viewing hardscapes. The hardscape will disappear in open GL in both veiwports and design layer and when rendered an annoying red line appears. Any suggestions on what could be happening?
  6. Hi, My VW is repetitively crashing for the past 15-20 minutes. I've restarted my computer, checked for updates on both VW and my OS and still am experiencing repeated crashes. My file isn't that detailed so it's not an overload issue. Anyone else experiencing this? I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.3 and VW 2020.
  7. @Pat Stanford thanks for chiming in. Do the 3D plants have seasonal images /classes included automatically? To achieve what I’m requesting would the workflow resemble creating a copy of each plant instance and pasting a ‘generated’ Version on top of it with the visibility being controlled within classes?
  8. Hi, Queston 1: Can a single plant instance be viewed with a 2D symbol in plan view, a 3d 'generated' conceptual view and with an image prop for a more realistic view? Question 2: Can a single plant instance have multiple image props for seasonal shifts? Any suggestions or advice is appreciated!
  9. @Nico_be I have unchecked Mesh Smoothing and my landscape area is still rendering grass upside down. @Altivec My object is a Landscape Area. And I've created a work around with a 3D poly and texture applied to that. Since then, I haven't experienced the issue again.
  10. I've created a work around with a 3D poly and texture applied to that. Since then, I haven't experienced the issue again. @Nico_be Mesh smoothing is now unchecked and I will test my landscape area. The landscape area I'm working on is a planting bed not relative to the site model in any way other than it just sits on top of it. Does mesh smoothing affect landscape areas aside from the site model? thanks for all the help with this!
  11. Actually, to correct my comment above, my grass texture is applied to my landscape area. I can't flip the orientation of this, can I? Any suggestions on how to work around?
  12. I am having the same issue. I'm not working with a site model but simply applying textures to shape objects so I'm not sure how to change the mesh smoothing preference.
  13. @Tamsin Slatter Thanks for suggesting that tool! I was struggling with driveways and roadways and that tool does it all!
  14. Is anyone else experiencing repeated crashes with VW 2020? I am operating with Catalina 10.15.1 and have been stumbling through with this upgrade for a few weeks but as of yesterday things began to become super glitchy, ie; inconsistent renderings in viewports, line work and textures randomly appearing and disappearing and most recently inconsistency between working and published viewports, specifically when customizing the classes and layers visibilities in various viewports. I'm not seeing any software updates to remedy this. Any suggestions other than reverting back to the old operating system, which isn't an option. Thanks for any feedback
  15. I'm definitely experiencing some bugs with the VW 2020 and Catalina 10.15 specifically lag time and frequent crashes. I would suggest holding off on the upgrade and i'll keep my fingers crossed that issues are resolved soon.
  16. Hi, I'm new to the surface sculpting and am trying to figure out how to turn find the toggle that allows me to switch back and forth between the 3D rendering and the surface details? Also, I can't seem to add any vertices to my surfaces. Thanks for any feedback. Stephanie
  17. Hi, I've created a pillar (post) and would like to join it to the roof face. I've extruded a surface from the underside of the roof and have selected both the surface and the pillar and then used the section solids tool to 'break' the pillar at the newly created roof surface however I continue to get an error message saying the geometry i've chosen is incorrect....or something along those lines. Help?
  18. Hi, I've created a stair object and would like to generate a materials report to submit to my builder. Any advice on how to achieve this? Thanks, Stephanie
  19. Ok, thanks for the info! I'll work with adding my own geometry to the fence after it's creation.
  20. Yes, I added 3 additional lines to the symbol. Is there no way to convert the new version of the symbol back into a plug in? Thanks, Stephanie
  21. Hi, I am designing a custom exterior deer fence. I've used the Railing/Fence tool to build the basic structure but am wanting to add additional guy wires and other details that aren't options in the railing/fence tool. To work around this, I've edited my design through the resource manager by editing the 3D component . After editing it, the new fence is no longer available as a Plug-in through the railing/fence tool. When I hover over the new fence in the resource browser it is still described as a Symbol/Plug-in, but when I filter to only display Plug-in items its no longer available. Also, when I right click and use click the 'Edit the Symbol Options' dialogue, I do not have the option to 'Convert to Plug-in Object' but am limited to 'Convert to Group' option. Is there a way to convert this symbol back to a Plug-in so I can use it to plot out my fence? Thanks! VW2019
