  1. I have noticed a small issue with the dialog box when saving a pdf from the print dial box. I can only see 3 rows and cannot expand the panel. I noticed this before on 2019/Mojave but seemed to go away with 2020/Catalina. Its not the end of the world but feels funny looking at my files through a letter box.

    MBP 2016 TB - 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 - 16GB RAM


    UPDATE : I have just noticed the same issue in Numbers (Mac app). So perhaps this is a OS issue.

    Upgraded without thinking, just because I'm off work over Christmas and figured was a good time to do it, but VW21 with BigSur seems to have the navigation lagging which I've only ever had before on a very large file. the Mac is well specced for what's needed and not missing anything so I'm guessing it must be a bug? Zooming in and out and panning across the screen is has like a half second delay with every move suddenly. Anyone else finding this? 


    Hi - I have gone for it with 2021 and Big Sur - all up to date with latest VW service pack. 

    From my experience everything works okay and I felt panning and zooming was in fact faster/smoother than Catalina. 

    I am using a Mac Book Pro late 2016, 2.7ghz, 16GB RAM


    My files though may be a bit light and so not pushing the limits with full on BIM. It is mostly CAD with some 3d modelling, wall and roof components. 3D more of a sketch. 




  3. @JuanP I am following both this and the main Big Sur and I wanted to ask if there was a general update or the upgrade following the release on the 12th of Nov. It was said that some feedback would be given in a few days after its release and I was wondering how that was going? 


    I am using -

    VW2021 SP2

    Mac Book Pro Late 2016

    2.7 Quad core i7

    Radeon Pro 455 2GB

    16GB RAM

  4. Interesting idea 

    How do you approach it - is it all free form solid elements? Does this integrate okay in your 2D drawings too. woudl be interested to also see an example.

    Get out now! It's a trap!


    The lesson I have learnt the hard way over these many years is the tool in its many iterations is a time sink so I model my own stairs.




  5. Dear All


    Does anyone know how to stop this happening! I am a fledgling VW BIM learner 

    I have noticed that top and bottom of the stair has a weird clip / cut fill that comes through all layers. It does not show in the camera mode - just in clip cube - so If I want to export a view it shows through. 


    Any solutions approaches appreciated!

  6. Dear VW community 

    When I try to apply the class overrides from one view port to another using the 'bucket' apply attributes tool - it does not display the change. 

    In the view port I just tried to do this with the class indicates in the object info that it has changed but does not display. 

    Some viewports can work but mostly it doesn't. 

    Has anyone also had this problem? or know a fix. 

    Below is an image of the attributes I have ticked. 


    I have had the same issue with that last two Vectorworks 2019/20.


    Any help appreciated as it's a real time saver.

  7. I am selling a Vectorworks 2020 licence with no VAT

    The price of the licence is £2250 and what is special is there is no Vat to add to the licence cost so its a nice saving. The cost of transferring the licence is also included - it is £150

    Contact me directly if you are interested




  8. Hi 


    The only glitch I can see is that it feels a fraction slower, but maybe thats VW19 anyway. 

    I do not experience the polyline beach ball mentioned. 

    I have modelling in 3D / using stories / making sheets doing all things normal and it seems to hold up fine. 

    Im on a Mac book Pro 2016 2.7ghz i7 / 16GB RAM
