    Beware of Navigation Graphics Settings

    This is still an issue that I've just experienced in Vectorworks 2019. My hatches in an annotation layer would display incorrectly (larger) and would publish at a much smaller size. The size of the hatches would change for a split second every time I zoomed in with the scroll wheel. This was observed on both Mac and PC machines running OSX Sierra and the latest Windows 10. This display bug was fixed upon switching to 'Good Performance and Compatibility' on both Mac and PC.

    Loss of renderworks options / Renderworks disappears

    Okay, I just remade the component from scratch and the issue resolved itself. That was really weird though. I'll make a new thread if this comes up again. ūüĎć

    Loss of renderworks options / Renderworks disappears

    I've just opened this file on another Windows 10 PC as well as a 2014 iMac on Yosemite. This issue persists in both computers which also leads me to believe that my file is at fault.

    Yes, here is an image of the component class settings. These are default settings and textures for the roof style named "Sloped Wood Struct Insul Spanish Tile". I have converted these roof objects to unstyled.@zoomer

    Loss of renderworks options / Renderworks disappears

    This issue returned. Restarting my computer did not solve the issue this time. Here are images. The 2D representation of what appears to be the top component (Spanish Clay Tile) of my roof object is showing as a wireframed object. This affects my hidden line render in my elevation viewport as well as my openGL render. Just yesterday, these roof objects rendered as solid. I came into the office today and opened vectorworks to find that these objects were transparent. I went back into a backup file not too long ago and found that these same roof objects behave normally. These two files, one with transparent roof components and one with solid roof components, are open simultaneously. This appears to be caused by a bug in the software as opposed to my own doing. Let me know if you have a solution, or if I should be posting this to a different location on the forums. Thanks, Raymond

    Slab Line Visibility Issue

    This issue went away after making the slab objects again from scratch (polyline tool -> AEC -> Create objects from shapes -> Slab..

    Custom Wall Shapes

    Hey guys, I'm having a hard time shaping this wall with an elongated arched opening. Not a seg head and not round. I have a wall with a squared opening, and I have modeled these two filleted extrudes to round out the corners. However in elevation, these two objects, although they touch, still leave behind a line. I need the stucco component from the wall to combine with the custom extrudes in elevation. I've looked online for help, however it still isn't clear to me how I would do this. Thanks, Raymond

    Door Schedule Criteria

    Hey guys, I'm trying to isolate my door objects that have the number "1" for its ID Label value. However inputting this into the criteria window identifies objects that have 0, 1, 2, and 3 for their ID Label values. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Raymond

    Slab Line Visibility Issue

    Hey Guys, I'm having issues with my section viewport where a line from the a slab object is showing through a wall. In the attached images, I've circled the three instances where a line appears where it should not. I have tried moving the slab far beyond the wall, but the line still displays. The line disappears when I delete the slab object and update the viewport. The strange thing is, when I pull the clip cube away from the building for an elevation, the lines disappear. Let me know what you guys think the issue is. Thanks, Raymond

    Hand Rail Line Weight

    @Alan Woodwell Hey Alan, this worked. Thanks!

    Hand Rail Line Weight

    @Btreen The line weight for this class is already set to 0.13mm. I have tried changing it to 1.0mm from the class organization window. This has no effect on the handrail object when updating the section viewport.

    Hand Rail Line Weight

    Hey guys, I'm just trying to change the line weight of a hand rail object in the elevation/section viewport. I'm sure this is possible, however I haven't been able to find the solution. My desired lineweight is 0.13mm, however it displays thicker in elevation/section view. I've included images of the OIP and attributes. The layer that the object is placed on is set to 0.13mm, but as you can see this is not the case. Thanks, Raymond

    It seems the issue went away after restarting my computer. So things are back to normal for now.

    Yes, I'm running VW 2018 on windows 10 professional and I am having this issue where my roof component texture is transparent. I would like to see if this update file would work for me, Thanks.
