    Section View - No Hatch

    Hello forum heroes. I have drafted a 3D set piece and created a viewport on a sheet layer. From there I added a section viewport. Problem is my cut solids show as solid black instead of hatched like a cut piece should. What am I doing wrong? Christopher

    Creating a cropped viewport in 2019

    It was set to Screen Aligned. That solved it. Thank you. Don't know how I did that.

    Creating a cropped viewport in 2019

    Thanks for responding. I have done (3 times actually, out of desperation) and the dialog has not come back. Is it something they removed from 2019?
  4. I recently upgraded to VW2019. I usually create my viewports by placing a 2D shape over the part of my my Design Layer I want to use and clicking Create Viewport. Click yes on the dialog and move on. I don't know if I accidentally clicked on the "Do Not Show Again" at some time or if the pre-cropped option was removed in 2019, but I am no longer able to do this. I don't get the dialog box and I can't figure out how to get it back. I have clicked the "Reset Saved Settings" in the Session options and it has not helped. Any Ideas? I use this all the time. Thanks, Christopher

    Text is in outline

    I would like to mention that I am a windows user and I ended up with this problem due to some voodoo key strokes I used. I did not open a file from a Mac. So there is some way for a windows user to do this to themselves. The problem would have been figured out much sooner had those boxes been visible even if grayed out. Thanks to Raymond for saving me from insanity. C

    Text is in outline

    I just clicked plain text and restarted. Did not have to worry about the script

    I am using a student version, 2018 It doesn't matter what font I use but the file attached is Arial in a new blank doc. I do not have an option for shadow or outline. Thanks for your help C text_problem.vwx

    Text is in outline

    Thanks for the response. I have done this, but I still get the text in this weird outline (regardless of font chosen) and offset from the fill box.

    Text is in outline

    Hi, I cannot figure out how to fix this. It doesn't matter what font I use, or text size. Unstyled text is always in this weird outline style and extended beyond the text box. I cannot figure out what I did or how to get it back. If I select a pre-loaded style like Dimension 12pt everything is fine and I can alter size and font with no problem, but I can't make my own styles without this issue. Haven't been able to find any posts with this problem yet, any ideas? Thanks, Christopher

    Raked, Arc Floor

    Thanks Kevin, That's exactly what I did and it worked great.

    Raked, Arc Floor

    Trying to draw a theatre. The house has an arced layout that also rakes. So the floor rakes up 1.5' along the radii instead of straight from the stage so it is sort of a very shallow bowl segment. If the arc was a full circle it would be about 203' in diameter, also the center of the circle would exist some 50' from the section being used. How do I create this shape?
