    BUG -Auto-Pan No Longer Working

    Perhaps not only toggle but to allow adjustment in preferences of the time delay that initiates the auto scroll. This should help account for differences in mouse/trackball, etc. sensitivity settings.
  2. An inadvertent key stroke has sent me to top view at times so I have learned to notice the light green background after which the ctrl-5 sends me back. Part of my work flow 😉.

    Viewport / sheet layers content missing

    Hello @Aurore B , Thanks for the follow-up. My first thought was to check the viewport's layer and/or class visibility settings in the Object Info pallet. These settings have changed on their own in the past... at least for me.

    Snap / constrain function not working

    The most likely culprit is that I believe only VW2018 and VW2019 are compatible with Mojave... and even those users are having significant compatibility issues that are documented at length in the NEWS YOU NEED section of the forum. Do read through the many posts regarding Mojave compatibility. From what I have read VW2017 will not be updated to work as you have become accustomed with Mojave. 😢

    Callout tool, no arrows

    Hello@Ride I am unable to reproduce the noted behavior trying 2 approaches: 1. Using the initial settings dialog located in the upper left of the menu bar I selected an arrow style other than the default. The arrow appeared as intended after placing he note. 2. After installation of the note I changed the arrow style via the OIP "marker attributes". It changed as intended. I was able to sort of reproduce the described behavior by first installing the note with the marker box unchecked. After placement the note would then not accept any arrow or other marker using the OIP "marker attributes". screen shot.pdf

    2019 Undo Bug - VB-154417

    @Taproot I have been unable to duplicate this behavior, though there are many possible settings, etc. that you used of which I am unaware. Could you post the file?

    Transparent walls on "Hidden line" elevation render

    Hello BenjaminD and welcome to the world of Vectorworks. The first thing I suggest is to inspect the transparent walls, in top/plan view might be best, and verify that they have a solid fill. HTH.

    Teaser Tuesday - Image Effects - Vectorworks 2019

    Sounds analogous to how RAW photo post-processing works in programs such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One, DxO Lab, etc. True real time non-destructive edits that leave the source image unchanged. And that is very good thing. 😀

    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?
  12. 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.😀

    Missing Resource Browser Content?

    Thanks Andy, worked as you described. To quote the great American Homer, "Doh!"
  14. @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.
  15. Should be simple some how it escapes me. I have created several callouts to which I have added leader lines using the CTRL-click pop up menu. Works fine. When I use the same pop menu to delete a leader line... nothing happens. I've searched the help menu to no avail as there appears t be no mention of the leader line delete function. A nudge in the right direction would be appreciated.

    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.
  18. 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!
  20. @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.
  21. 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.

    Struktural member tool

    @jb.trystram I too am frustrated by the long drop down list not remembering your last selection. When I work on a floor plan beam layout the structural members usually fall into a relatively narrow range of sizes so it would be nice if the drop down list remembered your last selection so you wouldn't have to scroll from the start again and again.
