    Vanishing Elevation Viewports

    Not sure what the issue may be but when confronted with viewport related anomalies my first action is to check class visibilities at both the document and viewport levels.

    Wall Component Problem

    @ccw, glad it worked. I do agree with you that using the Remove wall Breaks tool is a hack. It really shouldn't require the extra steps.

    Wall Component Problem

    Just a wild stab... after adding the wall component did you apply the Remove Wall Breaks Tool to to the corner and then rejoined?

    Missing Resource Browser Content?

    Thanks Andy, worked as you described. To quote the great American Homer, "Doh!"
  5. I know it must be me, but... Since upgrading VW2018 to SP4 I can't seem to be able to access my resource browser content. The menu lists the items I am looking for but the pane that normally displays the content is empty. This is the same for all the folders with only a few, and unfortunately, irrelevant items. I've refreshed the libraries, restarted VW and the computer, all to no avail. Come to think of it I did not get the usual "download updated libraries" request after I restarted after installing SP4. Comments will be accepted.😀
  6. @ericjhberg I agree, particularly in regards to the Attribute Mapping Tool. Perhaps a variation to a auto align feature would be to allow the entry of a horizontal and vertical (or angled) non-printing control lines relative to which the pattern generates. Not unlike how such a layout might be done by workmen in the field.

    Delete added Leader Line... how?

    In a similar vein to @markdd's reply, check your smart cursor settings. I have... I've had the most consistent success after zooming in, and with the pointing hand hover over the leader line end point until the red square appears. Then click, and Bob's yer uncle, the leader line disappears. HTH.

    ID Tags for Door Tool

    Absolutely needed. Hard to grasp how a CAD program relied upon by so many architects wouldn't have such a tool.
  9. No doubt you are right that there isn't likely to be a true retirement... perhaps more of a phased one?! I figure even without VSS, VW 2020 should carry me through a few years onward. I went as far as CS5 with Adobe then worked principally in Aperture (until Apple orphaned it) in conjunction with the NIK suite (until Google orphaned it)... hmm, is there a pattern here? I too looked at Affinity's software but ended up with Capture One Pro for it's RAW conversion and that it can relatively easily import Aperture's libraries. The NIK suite has since been resurrected by DxO but I am treading lightly on this until I learn more. Then there's the equipment... retirement ain't cheap. Maybe I can do an occasional architectural job.

    CallOut Tool

    I've learned to prioritize my frustrations all too well. I also think that the callout tool text/numeral graphic enclosure should be defined by size!
  11. @NeilB your comment helps add clarity to my situation. I too like using the VSS model (in a professional services context) but plan to end it when I retire in about 2 years... which will then bring me fully into the world of photography software. The appropriately described Adobe rental model is anathema to many in the photography community and continues to be the subject of much discussion. Many Adobe competitors have successfully taken advantage of the anti-rental sentiment as a marketing strategy aimed at those (me!) who still want to own their software. I suspect that since CAD software serves a largely professional community while photo software serves a more mixed professional/amateur community the rental model is and will continue to be a harder sell.
  12. Hello @dF_STL . I'm on a Mac using Trackball Works 1.03 and see the same grayed out button. I think it is working as designed. For instance if you were to selected "click" for the right hand lower button the left side button now becomes active and editable. This may be the means by which a left-handed person is able to change the basic click function, overriding the right-hand bias the programmers used. Then again, I could be completely wrong 🤔.

    Struktural member tool

    Brilliant! 😉

    Snap to midpoint question

    @TKA hmm, not sure I completely understand your issue but the text hints (SmartCursor Cues) can be toggled off and on with the "Y" key (some times inadvertantly!) or can also be selected from the same menu in my earlier post but under "General". Otherwise I am unable to experience the problem you described. I see you use VW 2014 but do not recall if there was some issue with it that was resolved on later versions.
