    False colours, pixellated and flickering drawing area

    The first place I always go with any graphic display problems is VW Preferences > Display > Graphic Preferences and select either "Good Performance and Compatibility" or "Best Compatibility". Beyond that one would need more information such as VW version, computer model, operating system, other open applications, etc.
  2. Docking the snapping pallet on my Mac has occasionally been a challenge for me as well. Play around with the size/proportion of the undocked pallet, then try docking, seemed to help. Hardly scientific but who's got the time? 🤔

    3D Wheelchair

    Thanks @JustinVH . I downloaded it and will no doubt find it quite useful; however, note that the 5'-0" turning circle diameter measured at 4'-8 1/4" (??). I edited the 2D portion of the symbol and changed it to 60". 😉

    Callouts with Multiple Leader Lines - Line Thickness Issue

    Hmmm... might it be related to the old go-to: VW Preferences > Display > Navigation Graphics setting?

    Callouts with Multiple Leader Lines - Line Thickness Issue

    Hi @loretta.at.large. I tested it with both VW Architect 2019 and 2018 on my Mac running OS 10.12.6 and am unable to reproduce your problem. Could you add your VW version, operating system and computer specs to your signature?
  6. My first thought is to go to the Resource Manager > Hatches and right click on the applied hatch and select Edit. At the bottom of the Edit menu click on Scale and change the numerical multiplier to s suitable value. Note that this will change the appearance of all instances of the hatch so if it has been used in places where you don not want the change to show: Duplicate the hatch in the source Manager, give it a unique name and then change the scale. Apply the hatch as desired. HTH.

    Objects without faces!?

    And I of all people who has frequently railed to friends against the alphabetization of the English language! 😱 OIP = Object Information Palette. Click on the polygon and check and see if the small box next to "Closed" is check for not. If it isn't you can simply check the box manually and it will close the polygon for you.

    Objects without faces!?

    Another possibility... and not uncommon (for me!) was to draw the initial polygon and extrude without checking the OIP to verify if it is "closed". I now always double check.
  9. @CollaborativeMT thanks for the reference! I will look into Snagit and give it try.
  10. Alas Screenshot Plus is not available in the US App Store. Go figure. 😢

    convert vwx to dwg

    @michaelk from my perspective such guidelines would be very helpful. I am a sole practitioner and planning retirement in about a year with 20 years of VW files that I would like to archive/convert to .dwg. This will allow clients the maximum ease and flexibility in how they use the files in the future.

    2019 sp3 viewports pixelated

    @amcdonell if you haven't tried it already: My go to "Hmm, let's see if this will work" action with graphic display problems is VW Preferences > Display > Navigation Graphics > Good Performance and Compatibility OR Best Compatibility. 🤔 ...or try the low-tech progressively larger hammer approach in the hope it is a one-time anomaly: Viewport OIP > Update, close and reopen the file, close and reopen VW and finally restart computer.

    Tool Sets

    On the chance that this might make a difference Is the window set up with docked palettes or is everything floating free? My standard opening sheet and I do not have the described problem... (Despite what my signature says I am running 2019 SP3.)

    Buggy window deletion on VW2019

    I'm only guessing but it appears your machine specs might be marginal for VW 2019. Perhaps setting your graphic performance to "Good performance and Compatibility" or even "Best Compatibility"... Vectorworks Preferences > Display > Navigation Graphics.
