  1. For some reason the original resource was created as nurbs instead of lines. I had to edit in the 3D objects. I basically Copied the nurbs, pasted into a document, converted to lines then composed. Finally saving the symbol. Just in case some one has the same problem.
  2. I have a moldings resource manager. Some I double click then on the third click I can place the resource in the drawing. Others I double click and Vworks places it seemingly randomly on the design layer. My question is there any way to edit the properties of placing a resource object on the design layer?
  3. True but if clients are looking at the software we use and think it's less than autocad, then the job will go to the person who is perceived to have the more professional program. It is about efficiency true but also about perception. Throwing the bathwater out for 1/3 at the most of the users is a mistake.
  4. Yes a couple times, I might be missing something will call support tomorrow.
  5. Wireframe is even though I have it set to Open GL Yes solid fill see below this is when I manually change to open GL
  6. Taking some time learning 3D ,I usually draft in 2D, I wanted the Default when working in #D to be oppen GL. In my preferences it is set to Open GL but when I go from top plan to any 3D view it still in wire frame. Am I missing something.

  7. Yes I wonder that too, Why design the interface for 1/3 of the users? Disregarding Mac Light Mode and PC users? I don't understand the need for icon change just so Mac Dark mode would look good. was there an outcry from Mac dark mode users, or was there one person on the GUI team enamored with Dark Mode?
  8. I was taking the Core concepts class just to keep my skills up in VW, they were using the 2019 version. Sigh I forgot how professional the program looked back then compared to the cartoon icons we have to deal with right now. Glad I don't have to show anything on zoom. @JuanP - Are you guys working on this? Can we get it fixed before we are going to go back to work virtually in the fall
  9. Just wondering if there are any plans in the works for discounts for subscribers? I accepted that the price went up but for the past few months thanks to Covid 19 I am not using Vectorworks. I was wondering if there were any plans for a discount in the yearly subscription (I just paid my 715$ for the year). Both Gieco and State Farm insurance companies acknowledge that cars are not being driven as much and have both offered a 15% discount. Might be a nice community thing to do. Just a suggestion as a way for Vectorworks to help give back to their supporters.
  10. Yes to all of that! thanks for working on this!! I have always said VW has the best tech support, you have always been there when I have had to call in a problem. It's nice to see this being addressed to. Thanks again Martin
  11. Yep that's how I do it. @Andy Broomell really brings up a good point @Pat Stanford @Nikolay Zhelyazkov . If there are multiple scaled viewports the TBB should be able to recognize that and defalt to the scale being "AS NOTED" This would be the same reason we want to have the choice of architectural or engineer depending on how the design layer is set up, it just makes things more efficient and faster than typing it out. All you have to do is click on Update scale.
  12. Hmmmm so where does a user "set" that then? Or are you saying that is how it "should" work and I am misunderstanding you saying this is how it works. You can clearly see in my example that the Drawing Label is default architectural style, however the TBB is in engineer. If you look at screen capture #1 you see the design layer is set at 1/2" scale. Screen Capture #2 the viewport is set at 1/2" scale which is reflected in the drawing label. Screen capture #3 shows when using the update scale in the TBB it defaults to engineer and I have to manually type in architectural. Note the viewport scale is set to 1/2" (Architectural) and the scale in the TBB is clearly 1:24 (engineer ). Capture #4 shows the document settings in units is set to fractional / feet and inches, not decimal. I can't think of any place else where I can set scale or units. If you know please direct me. Thanks
  13. @Pat Stanford No if you press "update scale" in the TBB sheet Data the scale is engineer if I want to have the TBB scale architectural I have to type in manually 1/2"=1'-0". see below examples.
  14. Prefer the option to use either and have the flexibility to set either as the default. I prefer Architecture, which is "Actual Size" for 1:1 or 1/2"=1'-0" instead of 1:24.
  15. Still annoys me too, but I have customized my tools so there aren't so many. If I had real confidence I would just turn them all of and use short cuts. Alas sometimes I forget the short cut.
