  1. I figured out the problem. The culprit was one of the VW hatches, particularly 'Crushed Stone Coarse HF.' As soon as a substituted a simple tone for it, the PDFs worked well again. Maybe has something to do with the complexity of the hatch pattern. RLB
  2. In my current project I have Sheet Layers composed of five Design Layers. All visibilities are good and the Sheet Layers in VW (2019, Mac) look complete on the display. Recently, though, when I 'Export to PDF' pieces of one or more Design Layers are missing. However, when I zoom the resulting PDF in and out the missing parts are visible, sometimes only momentarily. It's difficult to find a zoom distance where everything is visible. This started occurring several days ago. Before that the 'Export to PDF' worked fine for making PDFs to print. I can't think of any changes I've made. I tried quitting VW and re-opening, etc. Any ideas or sympathies will be appreciated! Thanks. RLB in Brooklyn
  3. As a faculty member I have the educational version of VW2019, which I love. I've used previous educational versions for many years. However, I can't export my drawings to PDF format. I get a message that I must enter my PDF password. What is that? I've tried my VW and my system password, to no avail. I need to make prints and circulate the drawings electronically for my classes. Note: the drawings are quite dense. Any help will be appreciated. Without making good prints (with watermarks as previous), the program is not of much use to me or my students. Thanks.
  4. Upgrading to VW2019 SP1 seems to have solved the text problems I had before (see above). Thanks.
  5. A problem has come up in the last several days. When adding text to a Sheet Layer carrying viewports of plans, sections, and elevations, a Time Lag of about 10 seconds and a spinning beach ball are plaguing each step of my process. Everything is in VERY slow motion. This situation also affects text in Design Layers. Lines, circles, and other drafting elements are fine . . . just text. I've restarted my iMac 27" (OS Mojave) and have the latest updates for VW2018. Any ideas will be welcome and receive most sincere thanks! Rachel in Brooklyn
  6. I am working on the plans of a house, using various wall types and opening types from the Resource Browser. All of a sudden several of the six design layers I've created so far (plans of levels, etc) have lost their hatches, colors, and components. Likewise the windows and doors from the Browser have lost their unique properties. What's strange is that this occurs on only about half of the layers, not all. Attached are screen shots of two layers in the stack. One, the 'Living Floor' looks the way ALL the plans have looked. The second, the 'Bedroom Floor' has changed, lots of info being stripped away. And all this in the same file! Any help will be appreciated! RLB
  7. I've noticed in YouTube videos on Vectorworks that often the various individual menus are consolidated into arrays of symbols along one or more edges of the screen--this rather than a lot of individual palettes. Are there ways to accomplish this in VW 2018? I'm still a novice and can't find the instructions. Thanks.
  8. Hello, I'm new to some of the resources in VW and need advice / help on drawing a patio door for one of my projects. I've gotten as far as the three panel patio door type in the "Doors" resources, but cannot size it correctly. The desired unit consists of a fixed glazed panel in the center 80" wide by 80" high. On either side are sliding glazed panels 32" wide, for a total combined width of 144". This provides two means of access to a balcony beyond and better ventilation in the room. Thanks in advance for any help. RLB in Brooklyn
