    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

    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?
  8. 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?

    Classes
  10. 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

    EVERY time you open a drawing or start the program, it does NOT remeber the size. What a waste of time and an added step. I want my drafting to have fewer steps and be more streamlined.

    Simple frustrating publishing problem

    Below is attached what is happening in still photos. I am always having to publish twice, it won't save the correct name in the proper folder. It did not do this before. If I take the time to rename the folder instead of letting VWorks automatically name it and save it in the proper space I might as well save it twice and not take the time to type out the name. VW used to save it proper name in the proper folder the first time, otherwise what is the point of publishing. I shouldn't have to name a new folder each revision or each time I save it. That is why I save with unique names and set up each sheet with a unique name and number. It's all about NOT adding steps and having the program work as it should. IT was working before, is this a bug with the latest update??

    I turned document coordination on. Like I said it didn't fix the problem. For some reason your .avi file isn't working can you save as a .mov? How do I make yhis video? The issue is illustrated above in the screen shots.

    Nope no affect on the problem, still have to publish twice, only now I am getting annoying "Viewport name is already being used" error.

    Simple frustrating publishing problem

    OK I will try that, because I use A and B and my drawigns are sometimes coordinated with hand drafting I manually put in the sheet numbers and using that used to give me frustrations with the drawing label toolautomatically numbering using a differnt system I use and the carpenters are used to. Thanks for the feed back I will report back how it works out.
