  1. Thanks for your answers. I am posting this as a discusion since I am very interested to know how people actually use this program. Our system is based on Mac computers. For single user projects we can manage to use VW properly. Since time is an issue and we also have to work with the current know-how resources I am gathering an advice to be discussed internally.
  2. Is there a magical way to really make Vectorworks WORK for multiple users sharing and working with the same project, with real time updates,.... etc What would be a basic structure for a medium size project, which we currently share as a team of 5? Disappointment comes as I don't understand how this program is made to function since all the options have so many errors.. it really should be more user friendly, better structured for people that are not at a genius level with their knowledge... more intuitive but that's another topic.. How is your team really using Vectorworks? Can you please share a structure? At our office we are strugling to set up a working environment witch can be accesed by multiple users. Currently we are trying to do the work separation by creating multiple files, each one containing a part of our building. example: File 1:structural elements; File 2:hotel rooms; File 3:restaurant; . . File n:nnn We are using the reference option to have as a base the needed environment to work - for ex for File 2 we reference File 1 Problems appear when we reference in File 1 a part from File 2 as that may be needed for further alterations We encounter this issue that we are creating a loop which causes crashing or just deletion of the ref file in one or both of the drawings. So as a conclusion this way of working is not actually working as unexpected errors may crash the file. Also did some studies about project sharing- but the forum is full of discussions about errors and I would be very scared to use it for the team as long as our VW knowledge is quite basic. (tutorials, the project sharing video, forum discussions, consultations with local service partner and even had training in the office for the whole team..- no one is able to share a way that actually WORKS for VectorWORKS) Looking forward for the light at the end of the tunnel!
