  1. I made a copy of the door, turned it into a group, edited it then made a symbol. In the door PIO I checked use symbol geometry. You could also create a custom door leaf.
  2. Challenge accepted. sliding-door-challenge-complete.vwx
  3. Create an extra design layer with an flat extrusion object above the wall you want to removed the peaks from, at an elevation you would like the walls. Select the walls you want to change the peaks on then run the AEC fit walls to objects command and choose fit to objects on the layer you created. This will remove the peaks from your walls.
  4. So this is a strange one in VW2020. I've created a railing with the railing tool. I want to move a post using the position dialog. When I input a number in the Offset Position I have to type the number backwards ie I have to type 63 in order to get 36, this is because the cursor is moving to the left instead of the right after I type each number. Not a big deal when you have a number like 36 but try 3'10 5/8" backwards quickly. See attached image. Has anyone else seen this?
  5. Do you have a mouse with any programmable buttons. You could assign the calculator to one of them.
  6. When the edit section in place option became available I had great hopes for it. I quickly found out it took way to long for an edit section to load. It was much faster to go to plan view or 3d view and use the clip cube.
  7. Pat, If you look at the image in my post you can see that the first thing I did was to start a new document with five blank sheets. I did this to see if it was an issue with my file. I'm working on a Window's 7 machine, I opened the same file on a Mac and we didn't have the same issue.
  8. Clicking on the name button did reorder them for me. But I would still like to know why it is reversing the order of the drawings. This was not the case in previous versions of VW.
  9. In Vectorworks 2020 when I select multiple sheets to print the order gets reversed. In the attached image on the left is a list of sheets 1 to 5 when I select them and send them to the publish list on the right the order is reversed from 5 to 1. This means I have to select each sheet one a time to get them in the correct order. Not a problem for a small project but most of my projects have 70 to 100 sheets. Anybody have an idea what is causing this?
  10. I faked a coiling door using a door PIO. File is attached. Coiling Door v2018.vwx
  11. Have you checked the settings to make sure they are set for the object properties you want to transfer?
  12. Boh thanks for your answer I just tried it and worked as you said. I think it is a little confusing that what is labelled in the Dim/Notes tool pallete as "Section-Elevation Marker Tool" creates a section line and you have to ungroup it to actually make a Section Elevation Marker.
  13. Does anyone know how to make the section marker tool link to a viewport. I have a very simple drawing with a few elevations so it is all 2D drawing. I want to link the section marker to the 2D wall section viewport on another sheet. With the detail callout tool there is an option to link the callout to a viewport. This option doesn't seem to exist for the section marker tool. Which makes me wonder why they bother showing whether it is linked on not.
  14. In our office we use a hybrid B.I.M. approach to our projects. This means that we are using life building sections, elevations, wall sections and interior elevations. When generating a publish set a lot time is spent updating viewports. Am I correct in thinking that the elevations that use a renderworks style will take advantage of all available cores? Therefore more cores better. What about the live building sections what part of my computer system would I need to improve to have have faster update times for out of date viewports. CPU cores, CPU clock speed, or graphics card.
  15. With the curtain wall edit tool select the edit panels button select the panels and right click on it to access the edit panel dialog, make sure the panel has a texture assigned to it.
