  1. The Pictures are 1 of each Rotated check box clicked 1 without Fail Answer Try Again
  2. Is it lost on you guys that this basically Confirms my argument that everything up to SP3 is a Release Candidate because you cant fix all the problems in the release version until then? Truth in advertising goes along way.
  3. Label Legends Rotations and alignment are Mangled. Total contract renewal price: 1829.00?????? for this Really???? single seat per year! this is behavior in a brand new 2020 file. How can you even make anything with this to present to client? What good is a schematic view if you can not present fixture data. yet another example of how your QA Team is Failing your paying customers. and the software is Never Usable when Released. HOW do errors like this get through your Beta? Why do paying customers have to wait until SP3 to get a working version? This is what the label looks like and this is what happens in drawing back to 19 and fighting Broken Display view ports because they are still better than this.
  4. Links to the files have been sent to support
  5. File this Under Frustrated Rant. When I open an existing file from another version. I expect it to look just like it did in the Old Version. What good are new features if you can't open old files with out re-editing things that you have already drawn? Is this too much to ask from software that we pay Thousands of dollars for? My company does not pay for my software I do. 2019 2020 Instead of the Rotated 3d pipe I get a schematic view of it. Did I want this? No Is this what you would call expected Behavior? Not to me Did no one Use a rotated pipe at any time during your beta? Just a question I would have for QA? Text added to Non-Rotating Label Legend does not display correct. We should not have to Re-edit every file we open to see what is going to be broken this time. This is Death by a thousand paper cuts. I saw a Reply to another comment about batch converting reference files to not have to update each file manually. This would Scare the living Crap out of me because of things like this. Now you would have Broken views in every file that used the reference. Everything Before SP2 should be re-branded as RC-1 RC-2 etc. This is not Production ready software and making paying customers Beta test for you is getting old.
  6. 5 Years Running Still Have this in 2020. Anyone Surprised?
  7. Could we get a New Version of Vectorworks that you could just take whatever file you are currently working on in the last year version. Open it in the New Version and it Work without errors? 3 years running this has not been an option. This year it is my Label Legends even though they are non rotating. Extra text elements in the label rotate. I can import the legend into a new drawing and all is good. it just Breaks in the conversion to 2020 opening the existing file. I understand this is an S*** comment but the Frustration is High. Most company's pay their beta testers not make the testers pay them. I said the same thing last year. Your Beta Test Pool does not use enough of a diverse workflow to catch errors that should not make it through your testing. You guys need to cast a wider net.
  8. I had a similar issue this morning. I could double click and the Mouse would let me highlight the text but the box would not accept input from the keyboard. I could tab to another application and type away I could type in other sections of vectorworks but the in line edit would not work. Yet another year of not enough beta testing and let the people paying you test it until at least SP3 then mid year it is kind of working until the next version. Wash Rinse Repeat.......
  9. I had a similar problem after requesting a profile. I got the following response. I did not attach file as it would be out of date but I would say hit support up again. "We’ve recently had some reports of issues with the updater. There’s several things that can cause the updater to fail such as, issues with internet connection, firewalls, antivirus, and user permissions. To by pass that we can manually update the library file. Save the attached file to your computer, then move the file to the location listed below, overwriting the existing file and you’ll have all the latest fixtures. On PC: Program Files\Common Files\Vectorworks 2019\Library On Mac: Mac HD\Library\Application Support\Vectorworks 2019\Library"
  10. Version 1.0.0


    My First Run at creating new objects. I used the swivel CB object below for the start of what I made so thanks go to him. just Drag into your File and set the sliders in the OIP.
  11. you are not alone in this. Had an issue where I have a truss Structure with fixtures attached. Rotate Structure to apply a rake. Do not like the angle I chose undo and only the fixtures move Truss Stays Rotated and Locked in Position. Only Revert to Save corrects.
  12. I have also had this and similar problems with undo Rotation. I have a Truss Structure that is hung on a 25 DEG angle when I rotate the structure it rotates correctly in place. Hit undo and only the Lighting fixtures un rotate they revert back correct but the truss is still displayed as rotated but can only select when you select as if the undo had worked. so you can select the truss as if it had no rotation but it is still displayed rotated. only a revert to saved fixes this issue. Also show 3d only option on truss deletes 2d info from drawing if you unselect show 3d only after you have saved drawing truss is not visible and only insert points are shown. and we are @ SP2 level. Hours of my life I will never get back
  13. I am not using Lightwright but have had similar issues trying to get U/DMX to map correctly. I gave up and had to map them separately and use universe and dmx as separate fields. and built a symbol legend that merges the fields to look like i'm using U/DMX. Would love to see an answer to this as well
  14. The issue for me is related to the Custom Lighting symbols I have created. as soon as I import one of my custom symbols into a new 2019 file the instrument summary tool crashes to desktop. So if I want to keep my current Document Style I have to use 2018 or Generate Summary by hand. Support says they hope to have the issue fixed in SP1
