  1. bump! c-stands please, I have been hoping for years too. Fubbi
  2. Hi What is the syntax for summing a bunch of cells? Say I have numbers in B3, H4 and J8 for example. I can't do =SUM(B3+H4+J8), so what is the correct way? Thank you
  3. I could have sworn i posted this the other day, but I cannot find it. If this is a double post I apologize I opened a drawing in v2021 that I was working on in v2020 and when I hit numPad 0 to go to plan view the rotation is -90°, it says 0° in the plan rotation box, but I am looking at my drawing rotated. I can type 90° in the plan rotation box to get it back to where it should be, but as soon as I hit numPad 0 it flips back to -90° and calls it 0° degrees again. EDIT: I was working inside a rotated symbol when I saved the doc and thats where I was when I opened the document. So it was just a silly self inflicted situation. Thanks
  4. hi @Alex Sagatov yes, I see it, also while zooming in and out I have seen other "shards" that led me to believe that is was a failed boolean operation. I have spent a lot of time tracking those down to see if they "pointed" at anything, but they do not. and as @bjoerka points out, 3D is not needed of course, and it is 2D. But in the documentation/presentation/planning of this I have components mounted on the back of this plate and they are 3d. In conclusion, I extruded a copy of the shape to 3mm and that looks clean in the openGL views, confirming that this is some kind of bug or limitation to how the display in plan view handles this. It also makes me feel that the 2d lines I am sending to the manufacturing are not confused. Thanks
  5. Hi I am doing a lot of surface clipping because I am preparing an aluminum laser cut. Lots of small and big shapes. Inevitably after a certain amount of "clips", I get what looks like a problem. I can only see it in open GL by looking at the fill and the selection. I have tested all individual shapes and none of them seem untight or cause problems on their own. It's risky to send it off to the laser company before I know that my model is "tight" so I want to try to get to the bottom of this. Thanks for any ideas Fubbi Plan view: Open GL view with weird selection markup:
  6. I understand now. Never noticed there were three preferences. A bit confusing with two already 🙂 Also I had not clicked in the scene graph, sorry. Now i get the fps. Empty document, nothing except chrome running: I do not have the tool selection bug on my laptop which is also running catalina. It must be specific to my system on that 6,1 machine. Vectorworks is also giving me grief on the same machine which I have detailed in another post Time for a wipe perhaps
  7. Hi I tried both letter o and zero, none of them spawn a fps counter for me. Interestingly enough, the preference bug is back, I get the same window (the one without haze settings) in both menus. Made a recording... Screen Recording 2020-06-17 at 15.05.54.mov
  8. I tried to open a new file, set the haze to low - still the same behaviour
  9. HI I am running sp3, I had my hopes up when sp3 came, but it's something deeper. If you experience this too, maybe you are more qualified to report the bug in a constructive way? ps. to close the about box I clicked ok exactly 6 times before it "took"
  10. Hi I tried it, and them immediately made a screen recording Screen Recording 2020-06-16 at 14.01.18.mov
  11. I have a PC built for Vision and it works like a charm, but on my mac osx catalina — trashcan 6 core — d500 — 32gb, its always been less capable. Thats ok, its an old machine. However, at the moment I cant use it all because its bugging out. I think the last time I successfully used vision on mac was the 2019 version, which is of course also before i updated to catalina. Thats ok, I don't expect to crank the settings on this machine. I just open MVR/ESC components to check them as I build them. I can only do some quick viewing with ctrl-middle mouse, after that I close the document because its pointless to try to do anything beyond that without fixing the basic functionality. I am adding a small screen recording of the tool selection phenomena. It was definitely giving me the same prefs window on both separate menu commands. A wipe and reinstall of Vision fixed that particular mystery. NDI is its own little beast, I should not have mentioned that in this context... ps. added the same recording twice by mistake, sorry Screen Recording 2020-06-16 at 13.52.32.mov Screen Recording 2020-06-16 at 13.52.32.mov
  12. Hi I have tried extensively to track this down. I suspect it happens if I "edit report" in a worksheet that was initially "placed on drawing". When I close the editing of the report I see the pointer turning into a crosshair briefly, which is the behaviour for the initial placing on the drawing, It's a really a bummer. I use a lot of worksheets and when I edit them I am left with the dead windows taking up screen space and forcing me to regularly restart VW.
