    cycle through tool options

    7 years later I have the same question. Any solution?
  2. Maybe not the best practice, but I've done this a lot in the past without a trouble when making sections and elevations. The thing is, I copy a grid from a viewport into another viewport, Then, I mirror it horizontally to fit the opposite elevation. When I check the show dimension option, this happens: (dimensions) Maybe Im doing something wrong or there's an option not done properly

    Mirrored grid's dimensions goes bananas.

    I'm using VW2019 SP1 but I opened the doc in 2018 and it's there too. Thanks, I'll submit it as a bug.
  4. I couldn't find any related topic so I started one. I'll try to explain my problem. I'm editing fields within a worksheet and I need to use the calculator (macOS) so when I clic the calculator to inpout some values, the worksheet in the VW window becomes invisible. All I can see is the giant X. (see attached image) This dramatically reduces my workflow because I have to keep clicking (or Command+tab) VW to see the values. The other option is to get out of the worksheet but then, when I return to VW I have to double clic everytime to get into the worksheet. Maybe it is a hardcoded macOS thing but it will be GREAT if I could see the worksheet while using the calculator.

    Worksheet invisible when using calculator

    Believe it or not, the best workaround is screen capture the worksheet and work side by side with that image and the calculator. at least it reduces the number of clics.

    Tech Bulletin: Vectorworks and the new iMac Pro - 06-04-2018

    It has never worked well in these imacs. And unfortunately, I think it never will.

    Service Pack 1 for Vectorworks 2019 Released

    Well, after two days with SP1 and the new macOS 10.14.1 I gotta say, it works like a charm. Much better than 2018 pre mojave, much better than 2019 pre or post mojave. Faster, more stable specially with multiple doc tabs open. The angle constraint issue is gone, the text issue is gone. I haven't got any sudden close of the program, which I got a lot in 2018 and 2019 pre SP1. Also, I strongly suggest to change the autosave option from n minutes to n actions. it will not try to save in the middle of a heavy action, minimizing the crashes. The downside is, while editing a symbol, when it saves, you have to exit the symbol and get in again because it becomes crazy. In short, I don't know what you guys did but it's great now. thanks.

    Service Pack 1 for Vectorworks 2019 Released

    Anybody else having trouble with text? now all of my drawings become ultra slow typing or even if I touch the text. Even with new texts. Mojave+2019
  9. I'm having the same issue. Since Mojave, no angle constraints with two documents open. Not even using shift. Is there a service pack or patch available yet? Also, in some documents, when I enter a text field it slows down a lot, making it almost impossible to write, like 30 seconds per character. When you exit the text field, the document becomes stable again.

    VW 2017/2018 Cinema 4D Export Bug?

    Can confirm that I just performed 4 exports without restarting, with different settings and all work. Looks like it's gone! thank you devs

    v2019 Section viewport rogue geometry bug is back

    I'm seeing stuff that should not be showing. Toilets, sinks, fixtures... classes are off but they are showing in the sections (if the section line touches it, it will show). opened the document in 2018 and it looks as it's supposed to be. Guess I'll go back to 18 when publishing time arrives. BTW I'm noticing faster workflow in 3d, faster panning, zooming, etc.

    Door schedule is insane

    Thank you Pat. This was killing me.

    VW 2017/2018 Cinema 4D Export Bug?

    Hi Wesley, still no solution to this, but this workaround could work for you: Once you are ready to export, close the program. Open again and export right away. Try turning on and selecting every object you want to export. That could work.

    Project sharing: Huge door tag font size

    I had a different text size issue but I found the solution.

    VW 2017/2018 Cinema 4D Export Bug?

    Any news on this issue? I have the exact same problem. After the first export to c4d, it never works again. All .c4d files are 26kb and all .FBX are 900 bytes (not even a KB). Sometimes restarting VW works sometimes not. I have tried moving the angle, making different layers active, turning on and off all export options... I haven't observed a pattern, looks just random.
