    Simple frustrating publishing problem

    I have found the answer the problems is in the Update in AVG that automatically quarantined files trying to be written by a program in the desktop or on your computer. I switched from automatic to ask, then set a rule to always allow Vectorworks. Must be an update in my AVG. At first I thought it was the Acrobat start up I put to sleep but I was wrong.

    "Publishing" to PDF in VW problems

    UPDATE. VW tech support finally got it sorted. It turns out if you have AVG and are running tune up, in the Start up area, do NOT put to sleep "Adobe Acrobat DC". If you do it messes with publishing. I would like to take the time to thank Mike for staying with me an having a lot more patience than I do. VW support comes through again!

    "Publishing" to PDF in VW problems

    Just curious, anyone having problems saving and getting a blank page? All of the sudden I publish, it says I published but no file is saved, just wondering if I am the only one. I know it's not the naming structure or file length, I was on with Tech support yesterday and they did a team view session. Started with a blank file and published to the desktop with an untitled document that the support person made and same thing, shows it published but no file in the folder or anywhere in the computer. Can it be just me? M

    2019 SP1 is FUBAR

    The Majority of my crashes happen during autosave backing up. I noticed this recently if I make an action as it is saving, poof vectorworks is gone. A;so the keyboard shortcuts are EXTREMELY FUBAR. It's not just me, I use the same key strokes as with 2018, however especially dealing with text it wont' back out and give me control it continues typing my key strokes, or even worse instead of making a dimension I am typing an "n"N in the drawing labels tool or stuck in the tool I am trying to leave. so far 2019 is an efficiency killer for me.

    Completely random. It feels to me like the more you use hotkeys, the glitchier it is. The problem is I can't always repeat. IT takes several times hitting escape button and space bar to get the hand tool to come up. Not just that but several tools on just don't respond to the first touch of the keyboard. It's no tht keyboard, works perfectly with ohter programs like Sketch up and Photoshop.

    Anyone notice buggyness with the space bar (Pan tool)

    No worries, clarification is always great! Space bar is working, It happens consistently that is for sure under various conditions. I use IM client for Email. Also forgot to attach my reference lst reply

    Anyone notice buggyness with the space bar (Pan tool)

    It's all within vectorworks. I use Hot keys all the time to switch between tools. Easiest way is to select a font (like pictured) change the size, then hit the space bar to pan. Instead of changing to the pan tool it, changes the font size instead. The same with justification. you have to hit "esc" "x" then space to pan. When using short cuts for speed it kinda defeats the purpose when you have to remember to hit to more keyboard strokes. I'm also having some issues when I use "4" to make a rectangle then press "shift M" to go to the move tool, I end up creating another rectangle. Although this one isn't consistent, some times it works, others not so much. I am in "designer" workspace.

    VW 2019 viewports drop down

    I just saw there was an update I updated that and I am in the process of resetting the mode bar. Not really interested in the OIP being open. I either have to move to another screen to open it (Slows things down on a pen display) or clutter up my drawing screen. I think I may have found the fix though. I just did as you suggested and after the update to SP1 I am pleased to report IT WORKS!!!!!!! 😄 😄 😄 I'm very happy thank you!!

    Ah Mode Bar. To many Acronyms in my life LOL. I want to stretch it and have it stay stretched every time I open it.

    What is OIP and mode bar?
  13. Every time I go to move around the plate and use the space bar to bring up the temporary Pan Tool to move around it doesn't always bring the pan tool up. Often doing an action I don't want. One example I alter text either size, or justification etc. I have to hit escape then "x" then space bar to pan around. Every time I hit the space bar it switches things in the dialogue box I was working in. For example instead of going to hand it will change the txt justification, or font size. I hate the wasted movement of hitting two differnt keyboard strokes before having to hit Pan. 1- Does this frustrate anyone else or is it just me? B- Is there any work around?

  15. I was showing how cool it was to import a PDF and strip it down to lines to an ACad user. He then preceded to import same PDF and the layers were all labeled and editable from text to fills. Could be classes in Vectorworks
