    Exterior Elevations Linework

    In revisiting my workflow and how it can be improved with the latest version of Vectorworks: What's the best way to produce 2D linework exterior elevations from a 3D model such that those 2D drawings can be exported to colleagues /consultants /clients using legacy software? Same drawing file, raw or exported, must be usable by similar people using legacy Vectorworks. Thank you in advance.

    Convert Copy to Lines of LL model

    Just upgraded to VW2019 from VW2017 Architect. From my layer-linked model, I've always selected all, then Convert to Lines, Hidden Line Rendering, to produce Elevation drawings linework. I do so for each side of the building. But now it's NOT working in VW2019. Only Wireframe Rendering possible. No good. Help.

    Text Block Lag in Version 2017, Mac mini, Mojave OS

    That's unfortunate. And especially sad that, and I quote, "because critical bugs were introduced in the release of macOS Mojave that will affect the performance and stability of Vectorworks."
  4. I've recently upgraded hardware. Got the fastest Mac mini (2018 model) with SSD storage. It came with macOS 10.14, and I've been keeping the OS up-to-date (currently 10.14.3). Problem is, in Vectorworks 2017, there's a noticeable response lag when typing in or editing a simple text block. In fact, it's quite disrupting. Can't get much done. It's not snappy at all, not like in my older slower Mac. Probably a good half second to two seconds for anything like inserting text, double-clicking to highlight text, tapping enter after writing the text — even drag-moving a text block, which is weird. Might be a clue. But a clue to what? Everything else seems okay. Walls edit okay, dimensions okay, modeling okay. What could be the cause of this problem?

    DXF/DWG Export Colors

    I'm trying to understand the benefit of "True Colors" when exporting to DWG. What exactly is it? I'm using VW 2017 and don't have Autocad. I'm posting here rather than asking such seemingly annoying questions to my colleagues and clients who use Autocad. Specifically, it seems, when I import back the exported DWG (version 2004 or later), that "True Colors" is available without mapping line weights to colors and yet layer colors are also properly exported. Does the exported DWG file keep color assignments for layers separate from and in addition to objects line weights? Not sure if it's just my Vectorworks interpreting the line weights back to my color preferences because I run a script to set line weights to various colors, and I see those same colors in the imported drawing. In other words, what do Autocad users see when they import my drawing — do they get the layer colors from my settings? Do they also somehow get object colors separately, like when changing settings to turn off Layer Colors?
