  1. Hi @Wes Gardner im wondering what about the graphics attributes that are assigned to the classes in the templates that have been stripped off? Im currently working on custom template for my company and I think AIA templates would have been a great reference if nothing else.
  2. I have been trying to find the best way to select similar door type, using the select similar tool in VW2020. It doesn't work under object type as it selects all doors. Most likely if there is an IFC tab in the preferences, it should do the trick but there isn't. Any suggestions? Thanks
  3. @Scott Crane Everything looks perfect now!! Thanks for your help!! @gfp38 Ive had similiar problems in the past.. after playing around a lot, I still find adding texture to the walls very complicated. One way I could deal with it is, make class for each component. In the wall settings, assign the classes to each component and choose to apply texture by class. Then for each component, you can apply textures through its class properties. Let me know if this works, or you find a better way.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm facing this somewhat exceptionally strange occurring in VW 2019. Im Using wall tool to create my walls and they appear just fine in the 2D mode but the moment I go to 3D OpenGL 'I can' see walls which are in 2d/3d symbols but not otherwise. Further, if i hover around the supposed position of the wall, it even highlights and I can select them, but cant make them visible. Any suggestions why? I have attached the file just in case.

  5. Found it! I don't know how I missed it.. Thanks for the quick reply 🙂
  6. Is there anyway to click an object and hide the whole class of that object? Or change the behavior of visibility tool to hide the object instead of graying it out? I came across the following thread from 2009 with the same subject but I can't find "Class Invisible" feature in the context click. Im using VW 2019
  7. @Pat Stanford Thanks for the reply Pat. I'm not very familiar with the encoding of fonts and how it works, but if I understand you correctly, the font shouldn't print (or pdf) but on the contrary, I can make a pdf of the single sheet using print command; but it doesn't work for the publishing. Is there a way to define which font should it replace for only unsupported characters, but keep using the same for supported characters. I can, of course, use a different font but that's not what we want to do.
  8. Hi, We use US version of VW 2019. I'm having difficulty using japanese texts in our file. We were using Osaka font, which comes pre-installed on mac and worked fine. But if we use any other ttf japanse font, it works okay for print command but once we publish pdfs, all japanese characters become boxes. Any way to fix it? Thanks!
  9. I see what you mean, which means providing as many of such tools in the base package would avoid causing the issues of editability. I hope the future versions include these exclusive additional features in their base package.
  10. I tried using the class mapping feature on another occasion while i was on vw2018, it wasn't very user-friendly and eventually, I did things manually. Thanks for reminding though, I'll dig into it again on vw2019.
  11. @Boh Thanks for the script. In my case, I directly import DWGs into my project and add a prefix to imported classes from advanced import settings. :3 Are you aware of any other script which allows me to rename multiple classes instead of ALL classes? 🙂
  12. @Art V sorry for my naive question but how can providing tools which are already tested ok elsewhere cause issues with editability of same file format drawings, because of their geographical locations? I honestly fail to understand the real cause behind it but that's not my concern unless i'm provided a software which helps me focus on my design projects rather than unnecessary programming. 🙂
  13. @Jonathan Pickup I don't see the point of paying for Vectorworks and then program to make basic tools. I'll consider talking to the local distributor nicely though it's hardly useful 🙂 Thanks for your time.
  14. @Jonathan Pickup Thanks for the insight, Jonathan. Is there any way to INCLUDE these additional features whenever not available?
  15. @Boh I couldn't find it in the workspace manager. I use US version of Vectorworks, its surprising such a basic feature has been excluded. Is there a way around, to install it as a 3rd party plug-in or something like that?
