  1. My process in all other versions up to now have been the creation of a trio of custom created titleblocks for 2 different sizes of paper and 1 change in orientation of vertical layout on a page or horizontal, depending on the project and how best it will layout on the page visually.


    Title blocks were created using a custom block and graphics in VW in similar fashion to how one would layout in Illustrator (previous professional life) and placed in 3 different templates, one for each page. When working, all I had to do was launch VW, create a new document and pick one of my 3 choices, double click on it to populate the title block with pertinent information and 5 minutes later save out a new document ready to go. Each document was able to be scaled as I needed with no problems whatsoever, with no shifting of the titleblock, etc.


    Now I find after updating my templates, etc. for 2018, that they do not even remotely work.


    • The scaling does not work nor does the double clicking to enter any of the individual information.
    • Additionally it appears as some of the sections of the titleblocks the text has shifted to flow in one line versus being paragraph centered and stacked.
    • It now appears as I can no longer continue using old title blocks, even updated, or for legacy projects created pre2018? 


    I cannot see even using V2018, if the first, most basic step in creating a workable document that used to take 5 minutes or less, now appears to not work at all, and by other accounts take significantly more time as well. Please advise!
