  1. Thanks, that and renaming it as a .jpg worked. If it works like MS then I'll be very happy indeed.
  2. Hi Katie, For some reason the link to the rotatable plan image isn't working for me. Could you perhaps repost it? It's one feature I'm really keen to see.. Thanks, Nick.
  3. One really nice thing to use for this kind of work is the Parametric Constraint 'Constrain Tangent' in the 'Dims/Notes' toolset. Draw your various circles, and then use the 'Constrain Tangent' tool to link them together. The really nice thing about this is that if you modify/move one of the circles the other circles then move to maintain the tangency. Once you have the shape you need you can then trace over it with arcs in a heavier line weight using the intersection points to snap the ends of the arcs to.
  4. Thanks Petri, that sounds like it should let me do what I'm trying to do. I'll give it a crack this weekend. Cheers, Nick.
  5. Hi all, I'm pretty new to this Scripting lark, but I'm trying to give it my best shot. I've just about got my head round the idea of 'handles' and 'arrays', but essentially what I want to do is create a series of objects - each with it's own serial number - so that later I can query the objects for their properties (e.g. position). How can I do this? Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I haven't found the answer yet. I'm reading a book with some Maya scripting in it, and in that an object can be assigned a name when it is created.Essentially this is what I am trying to do. Thanks for any thoughts, Nick
  6. Just to lend some weight to this, this has been requested by various other people in the past http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubbthrea...=true#Post53164 .... though none of those links seem to be working any more ....
  7. Petri, I believe it comes built in. If you look under the 'Text Options' button and 'languages' VectorScript is down near the bottom.
  8. I'm having the same problem. I have an internet connection. Hangs on finishing, with no apparent change to 12.0.1 Nick
  9. I agree as well. They are both things that I have needed in the past. In case it is useful, this post includes a script that will duplicate, rotate and elevate: http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubbthrea...h=true#Post1173
  10. Working on a small screen with all of VW's palettes open can be a bit difficult, and minimizing every palette after use is very time consuming. Could we please have a key to instantly hide/show the palettes (in the style of the Tab key in Photoshop). I have been working with a dual monitor setup which of course is great, but the toggle key would be the next best thing. Nick
  11. Hi John, if you draw your walls in plan then you can go to a 3D view and with the 3D reshape tool you can drag the corner points of the wall up or down to create the slope. HTH, Nick.
  12. Sorry Bob, I guess I don't see how the User Guide doesn't answer that...
  13. I haven't tried this so I don't know if it works but how about trying something along the lines of... Create a duplicate of the barrel vault Create a plane that lies on the roof surface Section/split the 2nd barrel vault with the plane Use the 'extract curve' tool to get the relevant curve from the split vault In plan view convert it to a 2D shape and then plug that into Katie's suggestion. Like I say, I haven't tested this so it's just a suggestion, regards, Nick
  14. BobD, this is straight out of the VectorWorks Online User Guide: "Note: OpenGL and RenderWorks rendering modes do not support the Oblique projections. To render these, use Hidden Line or one of the Polygon rendering modes" I have also tried it, and they both default to the flat, non-projected view. HTH, Nick
  15. David, I would just suggest that you leave the class on in the object info palette, but set both the fill and the line to 'none'. That way you won't see the crop, but you can do a 'select all' if you get in the situation described and it will select the crop object - when I tried to do it the same way that you suggested I always forgot to turn it on first. just a thought, Nick
