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.

  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
  16. my VW dwg has italics but its shows up not italicized on the PDF that I export... I am on the verge of a new version just need this invoice. thanks all.
