    Making some layers opaque but not others

    Simon, If you use Stack Layers instead of layer links you can set any layers opacity independently of the other layers.
  13. Sarah, I did not get any returned emails while testing the Student Services email, please try again. Also as Pat mentioned, VectorWorks 12.5.3 is not available for educational users. So please request a copy of VectorWorks 2008, so that you are compatible with Leopard.

    Plant Symbol Corruption

    Marc, First, are you using VectorWorks 12.5.1 or 12.5.3? If you are using the educational version you cannot update to 12.5.3. For this reason we suggested that our educational users request a free copy of VW 2008. Also to get a better idea of what is happening. Please sent one of your problematic files to tech@nemetschek.net
