  1. Hi,


    I am trying the new autoturn feature in Vw2019, but have some problems with it.


    When I open a drawing (created in Vw2018) and send to autoturn online it appear fine in the window.

    But when i then zoom or pan the window the drawing disappear.


    Why do this happened?


  2. Hi there


    I have a title block and in this title block  I have a field, that tells which revision the drawing is in (see picture below)1.thumb.JPG.9e822c94897ba75d76e5cfb51bbdce70.JPG


    But when I create the revision and select "apply Revision Data to : All Active sheets"  Theres is a problem

    The revision line on top of the title block is correct on all sheets, but the field in the title block is not correct.

    on the sheets where i stand, when i creating the revision is correct with "A" (see picture above" but in the remains sheets the field say "none" (see picture below.



  3. Hi,


    I have created my own custom title block.

    It has a field where the file name is, this field contains a file stamp that gets its information from the actual file name.

    When I insert this title block on a new drawing in my project, the file name field is correct filled. But if i change the file name and open the file do the old file name still appear in the "file name" field.


    The other day i discovered that if I mark a title block and then uncheck the "This title block is active" box and the check it again, the file name stamp is updating on all drawings.

    BUT is it possible to force this field to automatic update the file name, if there has been a file name update? I work in a quite big department, and I am afraid that not everyone remember to do the "uncheck and check" thing.

  4. Hi you all,


    My workplace are looking into Vectorworks, and i am the man to setup our new template.

    I was told, that they want to draw in 1:1 scale, so the design layers are in 1:1.

    Our sheet layers (viewports) is typical in 1:100 and 1:200.


    Everything is good, excpet of one "hopfully" small thing.

    We have different line types in our drawings (water, electric, gas etc.) and these have different line styles and colors.

    I have made different classes to these lines, so it is easy to switch around them and to edit the style.


    Now the problem:

    When i draw a line in my design layer (scale 1:1) can i see the color of the line, but the style is "gone". Well it is not gone, but I have to zoom alot in to see it.

    When I then switch to my sheet layer (scale 1:100) is the line just fine, with the color and style.


    Is there a way (a check mark, option, etc) to do so the line is looking correct both in my design layer and sheet layer?


    Alternativ must we draw in scale 1:100. 

  5. Hi,


    I have some rendering problems.

    I have created this small file, where i want to make some renderings, but something seems to go wrong.


    I have created a camera and created a viewport on this camera. I have then duplicated the viewport, so I have three of them and I have rendered them with three different styles.

    But there is a differens in these. It looks like the perspektiv on the white line is strange on the fast and final q. also on the final q it seems like that the tiles are jumped a bit up?


    This is Open GL render




    This is fast q. render



    This is final q. render



  6. Hi,


    I have created some settings in my import options and I am wondering if it is possible to save these in our template.

    Now is it just storred on my local computer, but because we all need them, it would be great to save them in the template, so I dont need to go to every computer in the company and set it up. And if there is an update to it, would it also be much easier to do this.
