  1. Hi All, I am looking for some new opportunities to work in Vectorworks. I have got over 15 years experience in interior design, retail, architecture, but also manufacturing. If you are looking for someone reliable, accurate & passionate about 3d design to help with your projects, please get in touch. Here is my LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/greg-biernacki-a6121b48 My email: greg.biernacki@cadwise.co.uk
  2. @ZEROIN I have managed to sort it out myself. You have to go to your workspaces /Tools tab. Replace current Elevator tool in Building Shell palette with new one from the left hand side Tools column. It has probably something to do with migrating workspaces from previous VW version.
  3. I have got the same problem and message. Does anyone know how to resolve it?
  4. I have recently started using VW 2020 SP3 and I need to back up @Kevin C and others . It feels worse than VW 2019 SP6, especially in performance field, no question about it. What I do not like about VW 2020: - it is generally slower, It feels laggy & unresponsive, viewport refresh takes definitely longer (comparing exact same project & same viewports). It is against what has been promised on VW 2020 launch. Graphics Module Improvements - no , it is not true. - new icons - terrible, designed to confuse a user of previous versions. No idea what is a purpose of this change, perhaps they are optimised for 4k screens? There are some new nice features like: - class search boxes in wall / slab editors - love it, so much easier to use classes. However it feels like VW is dosing this sort improvements very gradually. Search boxes have been available in object info palette since VW 2019, it would be logical to propagate it to other dialog boxes straight away... - improved modelling history - great feature, finally if you need edit your Shell object, you dont have to start from scratch. - direct text editing in dialog boxes - finally - data tagging grouped object - like Enscape integration - it is a shame it is free for trial period only - I have noticed reduced amount of software crashes, but it could be just a case of specific project I am working on. There are lots of stance moments, with spinning blue ball or just freezing screen (this one is very regular), but small amount of them end up with crash 🙂 which is amazing.
  5. Did anyone else watch UK webinair about data tags? I am pretty much sure that tagging objects in group is possible (according to webinair), but I can not do it on my machine.
  6. PhysX setting is correct. My Geforce Card is the only active graphic card so no option to choose it in Program Settings tab. What email shall I send file to please?
  7. I checked all points mentioned by @Tamsin Slatter . All objects are just around Origin. Even though just after about 15 minutes of working with file, some objects start disappearing when rotating model. Longer I work, more objects become invisible. If I save file, close it and open it again, problem is gone for a while.
  8. @Tamsin Slatter please can we all have a solution for it? I am struggling with the same problem constantly.

    2019 Crash

    JuanP thank you for looking at my case. I have turned error reporting on. Will check on naming of classes in my projects. Yes I confirm it happens on all projects. Saying that, yesterday I used only one screen all day long as suggested by @Richard Finnegan and had no crashes at all, which is quite unusual. However this is reducing my productivity a lot, so I can not imagine it as a long term solution. Will keep on testing it with various project to be sure if an extra screen is a case.

    2019 Crash

    @JuanP Please see my DxDiag & Log file. I found only one log file in suggested location. DxDiag.txt VW User Log.txt

    2019 Crash

    Good point I will try to work with only one screen. Thing is, I have built that computer just 2 months ago specifically for VW. Graphic card is 1080 TI capable to manage 4 screens easily, I have got only two...
  12. Had the same problem , but title block is not the only one disappearing. There are also some symbols disappearing from plan. They are still there but invisible. Usually turning VW off and on will fix the problem for another hour or two.
  13. I have actually turned off Autosave completely recently just to see if it solves the problem but it doesn't. Crashes seems to be unrelated to Autosave. VW still crashes a lot randomly!

    2019 Crash

    I have got lots of same type crashes like the others. VW just turns off absolutely randomly or usually it happens when I look for some class in Object Info Palette , typing few letters in search box, it will usually result in crash. It happens several times a day and drives me crazy. I am using brand new PC of decent spec all drivers are up to date. I have attached DxDiag file and example of screenshot from Windows Events Log for a reference. Any advice would be much appreciated. DxDiag.txt
  15. @Kevin it is a very good point. I have not been aware of switching autosave to number of operations. However it seems to be just a temporary walk around. Interesting is that previously I have worked for several weeks on another machine: Dell 7710 mobile workstation and it has never happened to me. Just trying to figure out if any setting could prevent it but still no clue. For now I have reduced speed of RAM memory to standard 2133Mhz (was overclocked to 3200) and will test it for couple more days.
