  1. Vectorworks Architect 2021 NZ/AU version but available world wide with no transfer fee. $3000 NZD (around 1535 pounds)
  2. Ok, but when you "add dimension" you can only do one point at a time, then right click for another, is that right or is there a way to invoke the chain dimension right from the start? Is there a way to have a shortcut for the tab key on a mac as being left handed the tab key is annoying?
  3. Are you saying I have to make a new dimension line? I can't add points to the already placed ones?
  4. Hi, I can't find anything on adding dimension points along an overall dimension. i.e width of walls intersecting that walls overall dimension. I see you can right click and some times you get the "add dimension" but that only works for one point. How do I keep adding many in the one operation?
  5. Thanks for that, re delete leader line works in 21-SP1 but doesn't work in 21-SP5. Another strange thing is the file I was working on last night in SP5, I did a Save As. When I opened SP5 this morning it wasn't listed in "recent", so had to use "open". This seems wrong. On same theme, can Vectorworks open the last used file always on startup instead of an the blank "untitled" file?
  6. Hi, After placing a callout text, according to Help, you can right click and get "delete leader line" but it isn't listed. Clicking Delete Leader in the OIP you get the hand with the X hover over the leader line, it changes to red and I click but nothing happens. Bug or am I doing it wrong? Reason I was trying this is I can't find anything in Help re using the Database to place plain text with the text tool. Can this be done? Also when you add a leader line to a placed callout, it automatically starts at the intersection and then you mouse it to where you want it pointing to and click but the arrow head is at the automatic starting point which of course is wrong. What controls which end the arrow head should be?
  7. Hi, you have a Callout tool and General Notes tool that uses text databases. So how do I get my existing text databases from other CAD programs into the Vectorworks databases to use? I haven't tried any way as I can't find any instructions on how to do that and what format it needs. Hence the question.
  8. Hi All, I assume Vectorworks can import text and label databases from other CAD programs in for example CSV format? I have searched the Help and this Forum and nothing comes up. Surely I don't have to type thousands of text descriptions one by one into a Vectorworks database file?
