  1. PVA - Jim's post in Graphics glitch? was marked as the answer   
    It looks like you have three monitors, and all of them are using your Intel 630 integrated card rather than your dedicated Nvidia Quadro.

    First: Make sure your monitors are ALL plugged in ONLY to the dedicated graphics card's ports on the rear of your machine. Do not use any ports for video up near the USB among the rest of the ports along the back of the machine.

    Second: Perform the following, reboot, then see if the issue recurs:
     
  2. PVA - Jim's post in Issues with Active Document / Window Selection was marked as the answer   
    This is a bug we are actively tracking in 2018. I was able to replicate it here as well.

  3. PVA - Jim's post in Copying and pasting Multiple tabs causing Vworks 2018 to Crash was marked as the answer   
    Yes, I have it filed as a current bug. The only way I was able to get it to stop happening was to restart Vectorworks or close all open tabs once it begins.

  4. PVA - Jim's post in VW2018 SP 2 preferences not loading? was marked as the answer   
    This is because we added a new preference value that didnt exist before related to storing palette locations. It will not appear again, sp3 will have the warning removed.
  5. PVA - Jim's post in cAN NOT find worksheet was marked as the answer   
    If you drag the worksheet from the resource manager back onto the sheet, it does not appear? Same if all classes/layers (for the document, not the viewport) are set to visible?

    Moving thread to Known Issues, reposting a Best Answer since this seems to be common:
     
    If you are on a Mac and experiencing the issue where libraries do not install, try the following:
     
    1) Close Vectorworks.
    2) In your Application folder, right click on the Vectorworks 2017 folder and choose "Get Info"
    3) Set the permissions so that each listed user (System, YourUsername, etc) is allowed to Read and Write.
    4) Then, click the lock at the bottom right, unlock it with your admin password if prompted
    5) Click the gear and choose "Apply to enclosed items" like so, it may take a few moments to finish:
     

     
    6) Reboot your machine, then restart Vectorworks and try installing the libraries.

    Nope, same thing happened here in a test, the same odd fins appear even though they have no cage geometry defining them.

  15. PVA - Jim's post in Navigator style window for doing layout work in sheet layers was marked as the answer   
    Agreed! If anyone has not used it before, it looks a little something like this, a collapsible panel that saves you from having to pan around looking for the area you want to focus on next:
     

  16. PVA - Jim's post in CLT C an item then moving the item on the x or y axis was marked as the answer   
    You can hold Ctrl and drag (a little plus sign will appear next to the cursor) to create a copy, you don't need to ctrl-c first. Ctrl and Shift and drag will copy along a locked axis.

  22. PVA - Jim's post in Curved Walls in Hidden Line was marked as the answer   
    This is an active bug currently being tracked: VB-126062

  23. PVA - Jim's post in Data Visualization - Auto-Range was marked as the answer   
    I really, really like this concept. VE-97100
  24. PVA - Jim's post in import image file should create a resource was marked as the answer   
    I think a "Keep as Resource" option during import is the way to go, the image resource should be selectable as both a source image for renderworks textures as well as image fills in addition to being draggable from the resource manager into the document as a bitmap. Submitting request now. VE-97166
  25. PVA - Jim's post in Attributes palette opacity slider was marked as the answer   
    Agreed. Request submitted. VE-97163
