  1. If you go into the workspace editor you can customize the shortcut for the Clear command. You wouldn't be able to set it to just "E" (You can only use single keys for tool key shortcuts). You could set it to Command + "E" or something like that. (Command + "E" is the extrude key shortcut by default so you'd need to change that as well). Your only other option would be a third party application that lets you remap your keyboard.
  2. Can't replicate the issue. But changing the attribute mapping to auto-align plane seems to work nicely.
  3. Do you have a picture of this happening? I would need a bit more info to see whats going on.
  4. Could be a number of things. I would check the light properties for the light object and make you you have cast shadows enabled and soft shadows disabled. Have you tried just using Fast or Final Quality renderworks?
  5. There is one video in the getting started guides. Let me know if this helps. https://www.vectorworks.net/training/2019/getting-started-guides/bim-architectural/data-tags
  6. Good, could you please post a file with just that tile fill in it so I can take a look?
  7. Are you using a Tile fill or a modified Hatch or Pattern fill?
  8. SP5 is available, you can get it here for Mac. https://www.vectorworks.net/downloads/ServicePack?major=2018&servicepack=5&series=E&platform=MAC
  9. I believe so, but I can certainly check up on this. Have you found this to be an issue?
  10. You just need to attach it. Click the hazard sign then click the title block or sheet border and it will attach. You can move it wherever you'd like after that. Attach data stamp.mp4
  11. Well, that was surprisingly complex. You can make this work with a custom data tag. I've attached a file with a data tag that you can import and reformat. The records for title blocks are hidden so I had to do some research to figure out what the tag definition needed to be. Enjoy! Title Block Data Tag.vwx
  12. I see, let me see if there is a quick way to do this without having to create different types of title blocks.
  13. You will need to select "Edit Title Block Layout" in the Object info Palette. An edit window will appear and you can move resize and link the text and any other objects inside your title block.
  14. All good, You will need to create a Renderworks Style in the resource manager by selecting New Resource>Renderworks Style. Edit the resource and you can change all the rendering settings. Environment lighting brightens the model using colors from the background. Changing environment reflections will not directly affect lighting, it just selects which environment image shows up in reflections.

    Cool, the card is definitely enabled. Now you just need to change the graphics settings to use the card for Vectorworks. Ive linked an article for doing just that.

    Can you please send another dxdiag to verify that you are using the Nvidia card?
  17. You can also select which background is used for environment lighting.
  18. If you only want it to show up in reflections you can select which background is used for environment reflections by editing a Renderworks style.
  19. @Jim Wilson Are you aware of any outstanding issues with SP5?

    That is likely, try enabling it for using Vectorworks and see if the issue persist. I would recommend restarting your machine as well once the dedicated graphics have been enabled.
  21. Well that is not the desired result, I'm sorry to hear about that. Are you working on High Sierra or Mojave? Can you provide any additional information about your machine?

    Do you currently have a graphics card installed? According to the diag you are using the Intel HD 620 integrated graphics from your processor which aren't recommended for our entry-level system requirements. (Although, it can work for some files) https://www.vectorworks.net/sysreq
