  1. I know sometimes you have to click the flip button more than once but even multiple clicks of the button result in no change to the location of the sill.
  2. I have placed several windows in a wall and am now trying to add an exterior masonry sill. After adding the sill in the settings portion of the Obj. Info Palette, the result is a window with the sill on the inside. I tried clicking on the flip button but I see no change after. I can flip the direction of doors I insert into the same wall, but not windows. Anyone else experience this?
  3. I was speaking to a local surveyor recently about high definition surveys and was wondering if they are able to be imported into VW2010 Architect? Has anyone been involved with this technology? Thanks
  4. I'm experiencing some difficulties with Sheet Layer viewports. I have created a new Sheet Layer with a single viewport and when I move my cursor over the area of the viewport it flickers quite badly. When I select it, for example to change it's scale, it disappears and then I need to choose "Fit to page area" to have it reappear. If I select the title block I have pasted into the sheet the viewport disappears as well as the title block, but it shows as highlighted. It's very frustrating and a new occurrence since the upgrade to VW 2009. Anyone else seen this happen?
  5. Anyone else having problems trimming lines perpendicular to each other? If I try to trim a line back to a perpendicular line using the trim tool sometimes the boundary is not recognized and the line gets cut back to the next intersecting line. Never had the problem in VWA 2008, just started with the upgrade.
  6. I have 4 Gigs of RAM (which used to be plenty), and the Video card is an ATI Radeon 9600XT with 128 MB of VRAM. I read through the link too. Thanks. On larger files, some with detailed model and a variety of 2D details, might start approaching 20 MB, I do experience some hesitation. More noticeable since the upgrade though.
  7. I am running VWA 2009 on a Power Mac G5, and have really noticed some aggravating hesitation with the new version of the software. I was using VWA 2008 as of last week. The hesitation is most notable when editing viewport crops and annotations. Is anyone else using a G5 experiencing this? Would anyone suggest that I upgrade to an Intel Mac?
  8. I am having some difficulty with the Keyboard Shortcut for the Offset Tool in VWA 2009. In previous versions, I held down the "SHIFT" key and the tapped the "DASH" key twice to access the Offset Tool Dialogue. Since I upgraded I need to do this several times in order the bring up the dialogue box. Anyone else experiencing this?
  9. Here is one way around the problem. I have experienced it many times myself. Type out the Room Name the way you want it to appear, someplace on screen, then select just the text portion and copy and paste it into the room name portion of the dialogue box.
  10. When I try to apply a fill pattern now that I have upgraded to the new Mac OS, the majority of them are blank. Is there a way to reload them???
  11. I like to use a different font for my dimensions. I find it helps to distinguish them on a drawing already crowded with notes etc. I currently dimension the drawing as completely as possible using the default font then do a "custom selection" and change the font globally. This is acceptable, but wondered if there was a way to set the font for a class, and if not I would certainly make this a wish list item.
  12. It's frustrating that the worksheet generated by selecting "Create VA Schedule" is not easily editable to have the information you want displayed and the information you don't. It was a fairly simple excercise is V11. Is anyone else out there experiencing this problem????
  13. I am experiencing the same problem. I have placed several doors into my plan and am now going back and filling in entries within the "Door Settings" dialogue, that I want covered in the "Door Schedule" worksheet. There are certain items I want shown and others I don't. For example I want to display door material and finish, but not rough opening sizes. There are others but these are examples. How do I edit the worksheet columns to have the schedule appear the way I want. It was fairly simple in V11.
  14. Thanks to both of you. I appreciate the help. It worked perfectly.
  15. Can you tell me how do that? ie. "copy multi-line text into the room name box". Thanks.
