  1. I couldn't agree more with Matt. It's incredibly frustrating to have the resulting objects selected after an offset. I brought up this same issue a while back. Here's the thread: http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=12;t=002012 Dan
  2. Just curious...What do you mean by a "dual-platform" iMac? Do you mean OS 9 and OS X? Or, do you mean Mac and Windows (Virtual PC)?
  3. I assume you're using the Windows version? No, you're not doing anything wrong. This is a known problem and NNA is apparently working on it.
  4. We must not be talking about the same thing. The VectorBits eyedropper doesn't set all the attributes to "the little hooked arrow", no matter what settings I use in its preferences. For some reason, the fill, color, and arrow heads are properly set to use the class's, but the pen style and thickness attributes are not. FWIW, Katerina just emailed me her "match attributes" tool, and it works great! It does what the eyedropper tool should do.
  5. I tried the eyedropper tool at VectorBits, but it doesn't seem to be much different that the standard one. It adds some improvement for text, but I still can't "aquire" the attributes that are set to "use class's". (the little hooked arrow symbol). Katerina, I'd love to see what you're working on.
  6. Katie, Yes, but wouldn't it be better if I could individually select which classes and layers would be "locked" and which wouldn't? Instead of just considering them "others". Greying them does this, but limits how objects are represented. For example, text and dashed lines aren't indicated properly. And, I can't snap to objects on greyed classes and layers!!! This brings up another feature suggestion...In addition to a "lock" button, how about a "snappable" button? This would let me determine which classes and layers can be snapped to.
  7. I'd like to see a "lock" button within the Class and Layer windows. It seems odd to me that I can't lock an entire class or layer...or can I? [ 04-03-2003, 12:08 PM: Message edited by: Dan Kessler ]
  8. Tasfire, I couldn't agree more. I hate how objects remain selected. I've set up a keyboard shortcut to deselect all. It seems as though I hit that key combo every other procedure. I wish there could be a preference to keep objects selected or not.
  9. Why not just make it an option (checkbox) to change layer within the eyedropper tool? Some people might want that (me), and some might not (you).
  10. In addition to just changing an object's class and layer, I'd really like to use the eyedropper tool to set the current class and layer to that of an object. With the "pick up sets default" option, I can do this, but I now have the problem previously mentioned...The current attributes aren't set to use the class's anymore.
  11. Katie, I've always been current with the latest version. I don't recall if it was v10.01 or not. If that was the last update before 10.1, then yes.
  12. I typically have an object's attributes set to use a class's attributes. If I use the eydropper tool with the "Pick up sets default" button checked and click on on of these objects, the defaults are not set to use the class's. The defaults are set to the same pen color, fill color linestyle, etc. as the object, just not set to use the class's. This is frustrating to me if I want to later tweak a class's attributes. Some objects update, some don't. I think the option to "Pick up sets default" should recognize if an object's attributes are set to use class's.
  13. I'm having the same problem. Mine started when I updated to VectorWorks 10.1. I've been fixing it by quitting the program and relaunching it.
