  1. Hi all, Is there a way to increase or decrease the size of the text in the vectorworks menus? like windows have the EASE of Access option, i've tried to increase that and didn't affect vectorworks as i thought it would be defined by that option. i'm asking this because our monitors are getting higher resolutions and the text is getting smaller and it makes it harder to read! Any option inside vectorworks i can search for? This is an example of the text i'm talking about.
  2. Hi all, I've been touching this somewhat now as some more people are asking for the digital files instead of PDF's and when i was trying the settings to see what fitted better i got the result shown below. For the Floor plan works wonders and looks properly as i wanted it to show. But for some reason the elevations are not showing properly, it looks like its creating a very low res image on the front of the file and obviously this is not the result i'm looking and it takes almost 15 to 20 mins. although the fine lines and high res drawing lines as the above are there but it duplicated all the drawing as a low res image for some reason. The settings i'm using are these for both of the above images. What am i doing wrong here ??
  3. Isn't that the normal text font ?? I'm talking about the Software font in the menus in the picture i have a few arrows pointing at it! as the default font is not that one.
  4. Hi all, I have sometimes a "bug" (i think) and the font changes to a much pleasing one, is there a way to default this font (on windows system) this looks like a lot more like the MacOS fonts. Is this not possible at all ?
  5. Hi all, I know all or most of all architects go and use the Window schedule worksheet to dimension and size the windows. But when you designing the window, if you are going to have a 1200mm height by 1400mm wide, are those 1200mm height accounting with the Sill or not ? Why i'm asking this is every time i want to think of a window size i usually go to the structural dimension of the window and not the window size itself and the Sill has to be accounted for but when designing it if i go for 1200mm height i usually get to remove 75mm or 50mm depending of the size of the Sill. Relative to the doors the Threshold is incorporated with the door height so a 2100mm height door if i add a threshold it goes within this dimension and doesn't increase the height to 2150mm or something, Wouldn't it be better for the window to have that possibility too or am i thinking wrongly??
  6. Hi all, As per the title is it possible to add a button to make "all Settings by Class" (as it's added in the Wall style), so when we want to change them to match the class settings it doesn't have to be one by one. Stair Settings: Wall Settings:
  7. Hi all, Is there an easy way to create an Arched Soldier Course on the windows or Doors ?? What i'm looking for is a way to arch the top of the lintel without arching the top of the window (if this makes sense). The way i've done to actually contour this situation is creating a 3D symbol looking exactly as it would in real life, but i have to make/adjust every time if there is a different sized window/door. (takes a huge amount of time, i can make a few of them as i did, but sometimes i end up doing a new one to a new sized window/door) The way i contour this is by using the Lintel from the window/door and adjust it to try and match approximately. 1- Lintel from window (exaggerated dimensions to show in the picture what i do) 2- my 3D Symbol 3 - my 3D symbol inserted in the window without the window/door lintel option turned on. The final result with my adjustments. This takes quite a lot of time, when it should be able to just arch the top of the Lintel option without looking too "odd" and without arch the top of the window too. This is the look i'm after: Anyone has a better/Easier way of doing this??
  8. Hi Jan, You can, and this is my take: Duplicate the Brick Texture you're using, and edit that texture to Rotate it to Vertical, Save, then create a class (eg. Window-Lintel) Then inside the window you go to attributes and you go to Lintel and select the class you created above. IT will not look perfect. Another way (i use this way) Create a 3D Symbol with the soldier course as intended and add the texture and so on. (but this way will make you lose a little time in the beginning because you're creating a lot for different sizes of windows/doors but it will look quite nice in the end. It will look like that, but you need to fiddle with the Lintel options to let the 3D Symbol show correctly!
  9. Please make it a soon service pack!! This issue annoys the hell out of my 2D Drawing mind! (kidding) but hoping to come soon!
  10. @Tom W. I See, thanks for the reply, i will be keeping using the same method until they actually address this then.
  11. @Tom W. @TomKen I've done as you guys did but in 3D doesn't do what in 2D does!! any way to fix it?? P.S this was done in VW 2021 SP2
  12. Hi all, I've installed the free beta to test out Enscape and after the trial i've uninstalled the software but i still have the enscape logo on my toolbars how can i remove this from vectorworks ?
  13. Oh I see, i have to try that! I'm still surveying VW 2021 to see if we can have a smooth transition to it.
  14. What command is that? and is it only on VW2021 ??
