  1. I've upgraded to 2021, and now the option for an end marker on sections lines is gone. Am I missing something? Thanks, Kit
  2. Here's a video showing what I'm seeing: https://www.loom.com/share/e88c76a11c374cc5bed515a1173731a5 I'm hoping someone has a fix for this.
  3. I am having the same issue as Gabriel. Export to panorama via cloud, it comes out as a white image. I'm on 2021, up to date.
  4. Nevermind. Miraculously working now, and I don't know why.
  5. We're working with a group of students who are on VW 2020 on windows computers - up to date with service packs. In 3d views the model disappears. The only render mode that works in 3d views for them is sketch. Clip cube is off. Has anyone experienced this? Thanks, Kit
  6. I'd like to render a scene using an animated flickering fireplace. I tried importing an animated gif as a texture, but when importing a gif, Vectorworks converts it to a bitmap or png. Similarly, I'd like to do this with a pool scene, where the water is animated. Has anyone tried to do something similar to this? Thanks, Kit
  7. Thanks, no arrows on class settings. I guess it must be a bug. I'll send it to the bug page.
  8. Thanks Cipes, that was my first thought too, but it wasn't that.
  9. When I create a railing using the railing/fence tool, there is an arrow shown at the end of the railing. Does anyone know what's up with that? I attached a file. Thanks, Kit Railing arrow.vwx
  10. I have, thank you for the links rDesign. For anyone reading this in the future, our current method is to set the story to the lowest floor in the level, then manually adjust intermediate slab Z heights in the OIP or just drag them up in the model. Then either AEC>fit walls to objects (slab layer), or manually adjust them with the reshape tool. Fitting the walls to the slab layer doesn't always work well because it will defer to the top slab in overlapping instances. I think there's definitely room for improvement.
  11. I'm not sure what the best method for VW would be to build in this functionality, but it needs to be done. We're designing a home with multiple floor levels on each story. It should be easy in Vectorworks, but it's actually complicated because stories aren't set up to handle split levels. The advantages of BIM decrease when you have to manually fiddle around with slab levels and wall heights.
  12. Associative dimensioning doesn't seem to work in viewports. Am I missing something? I'm in a plan viewport annotation. I have auto associate checked in document preferences. I'm dimensioning wall objects. If I go back to the design layer and move a wall, the dimension in the viewport annotations does not follow the wall move. What's up with that?
  13. We're using Vectorworks cloud tours fairly often these days. It's great for remote meetings and allowing clients to easily walk through designs. One of the larger drawbacks is that there is no way to update an image without deleting it. This means that when we create our next iteration of a project we have to create a completely new presentation and relink all of the images to the other views. It's not efficient. I'm asking for an option to update images (panoramas) within a tour so that we can continue to improve the tour without starting over. Here's a better explanation: https://www.loom.com/share/61e510d34ded48a9822b844d311a8526 Thanks
  14. Since covid, we're doing all of our meetings virtually. Cloud presentations have been very helpful in this way. We export panoramas from each room to organize and share walkthroughs with our clients. But... it takes too much time to manually export a panorama for each individual saved view. You can batch publish saved views to images, so it seems reasonable to ask for a batch export panorama feature. This would be a big time saver. Thanks
  15. Ah ha, thank you. That did the trick.
