  1. Also, check the classes for the plants - they all start with 'Plant-Component'. If these are off, you won't see your plant.
  2. On one file, when I turn on the 2D plant rendering, the shadows and outlines show up, but the opacity and gradients are not showing up properly. These show up properly when the rendering is turned off. Any suggestions?
  3. Most of the symbols have a class for the colors - 'Plants-component-color fill' and 'Plants-component-canopy'. If you turn these classes off when printing for black and white, you should just get the outlines.
  4. Thanks! Who wold have thought of checking there?
  5. All of a sudden the standard color palettes changed on all my drawings, including new ones. Both the Classic and Standard Vectorworks palette no longer show the colours in the right order. Under the edit box, they look fine, but when I go back to my attribute palette, they are not. Is there any way to get back?
  6. Thanks. I will submit as a bug. What I was hoping for in rotate plan is to perform some of the tools more easily when objects are aligned. Doing text and plant tags at least works well, but some of the note tags do not. What it appears to be is that I will have to do most of the work in plan view instead and remember to switch back and forth - usually I would forget to do this. Another thing I caught on very quickly is that you cannot copy items from another file and paste in place when in rotate plan view, even if both plans are rotated, or referenced. They will not copy to the proper place. This at least does make sense to me, as the paste in place tool would use the point of origin to paste.
  7. I am having problems using some of the tools properly when I am in the rotated plan view with VW 2010. The ones I have come across is the trim tool, the connect/combine tool and the tangent attribute. For me, the trim tool deleted the whole line, arc, etc. instead of the portion I wanted to trim. The connect/combine tool connected to the wrong end or side, and the tangent tool wouldn't allow me to draw a line tangent to an arc (when starting from the arc). These tools worked fine when the view is in top/plan Has anyone else had these problems? I'm wondering if this is a bug?
  8. Has anyone else had problems exporting to autocad? Right now, I'm having to convert my drawings to VW 2009 before exporting.
  9. "There is a thread by Jeff Ouillette of Nemetschek that shows a comparison of IFC data exported to various programs. That is very telling of what translates and how the graphics will look" Can you tell me how to find this? Thanks
  10. Our office is thinking of trying this also. What is IFC?
  11. When exporting to autocad, my files open up with no 'real' viewports in autocad - they cannot be adjusted and are not in the same place. I like the option of being able to export using anonymous blocks, but when I click on this option - it gets worse - sometimes there is nothing in the viewports, sometimes the objects are at the wrong scale. I made sure the option to export viewports as 2D graphics in model space is clicked off, and I exported the sheet(s) I wanted to export. Also, the option to not export invisible classes is turned on. When I converted the file to VW2009, they exported with proper viewport crops that can be adjusted and the crops are in the right spot. Of course, the pdfs did not export. Is there some other option I need to click?
  12. Help I am trying to create paths using hardscape directly or by creating a polyline first and then converting. I keep getting the following error message: Problem creating pathway hardscape The pathway hardscape could not be created because it is self intersecting. Sometimes when I create the pathway directly from hardscape, it works, but if I try to modify it I get this message. When this happens, I either have to redraw the path or draw a new polyline to convert from.
  13. Thanks I never thought of looking there
  14. What happened to the number stamp tool that was in VW 12? Its very handy in certain cases.
