  1. Thanks so much Tom W, that's a great help.
  2. Thanks Tom W - kind of you to share your own 3D files - that would be great, if you don't mind. Assemblance, I'm also thinking something like what you're describing would be a revelation! I think it will just have to be a set of symbols that I spend a day putting together myself and keep in a Doc M file.
  3. Could there be symbols specific to UK Building Regs, for example for a Doc M compliant WC layout and specifically door furniture?
  4. This would be such a useful symbol - finding the door furniture available pretty limited, and it's time consuming to draw up compliant WCs. If anyone knows the fastest way to do this or any plug in to help that would be great. A lot of Vectorworks symbols seem to be for the American market - wonder if there are plans to offer updates for UK based architects and designers, separate to the American versions, since we have different regulations to comply with?
  5. Sorry I appear not to have replied back in November! But just wanted to log that this doesn't appear to be an issue anymore! Thank you for your response.
  6. Update - it is crashing just because I'm duplicating a design layer, regardless of whether I try to edit it or not. Can this be fixed please?
  7. Hi, Don't know where to report this but it seems there is a but with 2020 - I've gone through the same process twice now and both times resulted in Vectorworks crashing. Here's the sequence: 1. Open Design Layer tab in Organization window 2. Edit proposed layer to add "Op 1" at the end (using new edit in live window feature) 3. Duplicate layer and edit "Op 1" to read "Op 2" 4. All fine but when I try to move Op1 above Op2 so that they are listed chronologically, both names change to say "Op 2" at the end. 5. Tried to change one of the same titles back to Op1 but window pops up saying "name already in use" even though they are both displaying as "Op2" 6. Click on 'Cancel' - Vectorworks disappears. I'll try to find a way around it but want to report it so if it's a bug it can be fixed. Thanks.
  8. This appears to still be an issue with 2020? I had it with 2019 as well. (Signature updated)
  9. THis appears to still be an issue with 2020? I had it with 2019 as well.
  10. I was working from a file saved in the cloud and it has crashed twice so I've saved to the desktop and working from there - is it not recommended to work from a file on the cloud or is this just a glitch today?
  11. Ps. Clip cube is something I'll have a look at next as not sure I've used this yet...!
  12. Thank you Gadzooks and David for your helpful responses. Gadzooks, is the term 'class action' a thing? I'm still learning a few things and have been teaching myself so there could be some gaps in my Vectorworks knowledge. David S, I can never seem to get the camera to take the perfect shot without backing out of the room and seeing the backs of walls, which is how I ended up putting the wall which was in the way on a different design layer, only to be turned on in other viewports. I like your new Ikea mirror though ūüėä understand you have to have lights on to get a reflection? But still if there's nothing to reflect it won't look so mirror like.... Thanks again both
  13. So I'm drawing a small bathroom and to get a good perspective of 2 walls and floor I've removed the wall to the left. BUT there is a mirror on one of the walls and it would, inreality reflect the wall opposite which I have removed - then you would see a heated towel rail on the removed wall and the texture of that wall. It would be a great way to show the full design. But of course because I had to remove that wall to be able to see into the room, these features are not there. I was thinking that it would be brilliant if you could select in the mirror texture which classes should be turned on - so I could put wall and towel rail on classes which are turned off in the main view but not in the mirror. Does anyone know if there is already a way to do this, or has anyone had a similar issue which they have overcome in another way? Thanks in advance for all responses!

  14. I know this is an old discussion, but wanted to add a request for something which would be amazing! Or maybe there is a way to do this already which I don't know, which would be even more amazing!
