  1. @Tamsin Slatter Thanks! Ideally, rather than making us interrupt our work to go and hunt down and delete the rogue bit of drawing, I think it should be an alert that says, "Some geometry is further than n km/miles from the internal origin. It will not been shown and cannot be snapped to during 3d operations"1 as a modal alert first time, then as a minor alert in the message bar bottom right subsequently every time the user switches to a 3d view. From then on any stuff too far away is just ignored by the vectorworks graphics module when working in 3d. Sometimes it is unavoidable to have some things which are too far away from the origin e.g site mapping information, but they are almost never things that would be relevant in 3d so when working in 3d they could just be ignored by the system. 1 Where n would be whatever your programers calculate as the maximum the graphics system can cope with.
  2. @Tamsin Slatter Hi Tamsin, thanks for answering. There might be some stuff in other layers, I will check. But could I make a feature request that the software detects this situation automatically and doesn't do the weird clipping. Best, W
  3. Screen Recording 2020-01-08 at 15.39.23.mov Anyone know what to do about this? The project is centred on the drawing origin, user origin is set to (0,0). There are no objects in the visible layers that are far away from the drawing origin. Any other ideas how to stop it from doing this?
  4. Hi @Matt Panzer, I filed a bug through bug submit back when I made my original comment, with an example file uploaded. Not sure I have a copy of the file in that state anymore, but it should be in your system somewhere.
  5. Update on this for anyone else experiencing the problem. Export the file to VW 2019 open the file in VW 2019 then make a minor change e.g draw a line. Save the file. Re-open the file in VW 2020. Reshape handles are back. It is apparently a bug and they are looking into it.
  6. I think it must be a file corruption bug @PVA - Jim as if I create a new file the reshape handles show up fine. Here is an example screen grab video. As you can see, its not my selection tool settings and it is really annoying when trying to work with site pad objects as you have to guess where the handles are for editing the slope. Why does this always happen to me when I'm trying to get finished for a deadline...😭 Screen Recording 2019-11-28 at 19.06.10.mov
  7. Im also having this issue but only in one file. Very mysterious. Is it a document setting?
  8. And the weird moving external references bug which has been there for years. Triggered by moving the user origin or using rotated plan view, then close the file and reopen and boom! your external reference has jumped to another position. 2019-03-07_18-04-34.mp4
  9. Yes and the snaps that work in some contexts but not others. Why can I snap to intersections, line extensions and tangents when drawing or adjusting a polyline, but not when drawing or adjusting a polyline based object like a road? Likewise when drawing a line in 3d there are way more snaps available when drawing a line than when, say, adjusting a site model object or a wall. Why can't I grab the handle of something and get it to snap to a z axis locked intersection line with the face of a 3D object, but I can do this with a line. It's so confusing.
  10. Yep totally agree with this list. Before they upgraded the title blocks I coded my own integrated with my own drawing issue system, issue sheets and automated PDF creation and collation. But we gave up on project sharing because our jobs are to small for it to be worth the hassle, so I don't know how well they would work with that.
  11. Still poor general reliability. I've submitted about 6 crash dumps to bug submit in the last day and a half and experienced way more than that. Having a weird problem where VW sometimes randomly hangs while drawing 2d objects on planes in a 3d view. I had huge problems with generating sections yesterday where I could only get them to work by shifting them around until VW stopped crashing when I hit the update button. Not great.
  12. Can we have hidden line rendering done in a separate thread so we can carry on working while hidden line drawings are rendering. (I'm sure this must have been asked already but I'm obviously not using the right search terms. Please merge this thread if its been asked already)
  13. Do you think that's something that might be in a service pack as there are often instances where a wall or component is slightly out. Is the tolerance tighter than the max decimal places (in degrees) we can see in vectorworks because I'm still having problems with interior elevation viewports. I've got a set of symbols with front and side 2d components and they are working fine in two out of 3 rooms, but my last interior elevation marker is not generating drawings with 2d components. I have switched on all layers and classes, verified that it is orthogonal to the max number of decimal places. I duplicated an interior elevation marker that I know is working in another room and checked the section lines, just not seeing any 2D components at all. Thanks W
  14. Also, can someone tell me, is there a tolerance on how orthogonal the a view needs to be? E.g. If a toilet is on a wall that is at an angle of 30.002º and the interior elevation marker is placed at an angle of 29.999º is that going to work? I'm having real problems with some interior elevations not showing the 2d components. Thanks W
