  1. I am trying to add some Marvin window symbols to my old VW drawing. All I can download are .skp files...any way to change these or get symbols that work with my older version of VW so I need not re-invent all these Marvin windows? thanks, michelle old VW version (still works great!!!) 12.5 on Mac OS 10
  2. thanks a million, Peter..I have not used it in so long I forgot and could not find it! feeling silly
  3. I need to run my floor boards perpendicular to the way they show up when rendering. I tried the flip vertically and horizontally to no avail. thanks for any help. Michelle VW 12.5 renderworks, architect Mac OSX 10.6.8
  4. thanks for your tip..I did just that with the latest version evaluation copy have a Generous New Year! m
  5. Happy New Year all! I have a .dxf I am trying to open by importing it in VW 12.5 and I keep getting an error message after it tries to open itself. Any tricks? I really need to get this open today! HUGE thanks Michelle VW 12.5 OS X 10.6.8
  6. so happy VW does not let you call yourself names even if not curses
  7. Oh Jonathan I am an idiot..but FWIW I did try that very thing in the Document setting and she did nothing THANKS again invisible friends!
  8. forgive me I am an architect not an engineer...doing some drafting for an engineer and cannot seem to change the "Arch" type dimension (ticks) to his desired arrows (inside)..and yes I am using an old but beloved version on my mac thanks michelle 12.5.2
  9. oh if only!... mike, if only I had missed an invisible class! off to remeasure and redo..it was not closing up anyway and surely I missed something...if I learned one thing its get my time machine working...so if I used it I would go back to the time I had all the info right? I am a new mac user (how the heck did I work for years on a PC???????) thanks for all of your untiring support to my dumb questions! michelle
  10. yes should have said I tried that to no avail... If I'd stopped when I when I should have I would be so much farther ahead. c'est le vie gonna leave it open and hope theres another magic answer i have not tried
  11. ok this is a last ditch attempt... I just had a complex as-built group disappear. (I erased it accidentally ..should have stopped hours ago as I am fried) Is there anyway to go back in time with more undoing than what is allotted on my settings? thanks as always to all! michelle mac OS X vw 12.5
  12. I select all the lines which are connected but convert to polygon does not make them one? Normally I use the polygon tool but is there another way? thanks
  13. I am tracing a pdf of a site plan with 2' contours & would love to slope the perimeters of the extrudes I am creating..instead of the chunky square edge I get when I extrude the polygon. Thanks for any ideas! even if way different than this method still using 12.5 on my mac can't wait to get the newest version.. michelle
  14. Does anyone know/use this software. My dear friend a contractor draws his own (simple) plans (by hand), he has tried to learn Vectorworks and gave up and felt this program Chief Architect could be easier for his very simple purposes. Does anyone have an opinion? Thanks and happy new year! m
  15. I worked on the eval of 2010 version for a month and then I went back to my old version 12.5 BUT failed to save one file as an older version (12) Is there a way to translate that file so I may open it without 2010? I see it has a .vmx suffix not an .mcd.. or need I email it to tech support to transfer? Thanks M VW 12.5 on my PC VW 11 on my mac
