    Screen flicker

    Hello hello! Screen flickering here every time I do anything on the "Classes" tab of the Organization menu. It is reeeeally weird and I see this post is from 2007, any solution? Version of VW : Vectorworks Architect - VW 2019 SP2 (build 463397) (64-Bit) Operating System: Windows 7 Professional What is your screen resolution? 1920 x 1080 (I work with two HP Elite Display E222 monitors). A detailed explanation of what flickers: when I click on the "Classes" tab of the Organization menu or when I click on any Class name, visibility, tags etc in that same menu the drawing on my design layer (visible behind the window menu) zoom by itself to a different position and then, back. Also funny (although not exactly a flickering issue but maybe relevant): when I'm working with viewports or referenced files and I reload them, changes are only visible after I zoom out. Need to scroll the mouse or I can't see the changes.

    Traditional window schedules

    Wow there's still so much to learn. I'm a VW beginner and I have no idea how this works =/ would anyone reccommend a tutorial for using this marionette tool?

    Sheet layer navigation drop down alphabetical

    On VW 2019, you can open the Organization window and drag and drop your layers/sheets stacking order. The dropdown layer menu will be updated accordingly.

    How to use Dual Monitors ?????

    Update for VW 2019: Enable multiple View Panes; then, Create a Floating View Pane. Unselect Use Same Visibilities in All Panes (I usually save views to work on two screens).

    Not able to snap to referenced items in viewports

    If like myself you're a beginner scrolling through the page: try to update All Viewports (I have a shortcut key but I wish there was a shorcut for this similar to the "refresh" button on Internet Explorer). I've learned this routine to be the key for the snapping tool. Also, make sure Single Object Interactive Scaling Mode is on; Snap to Object is on; Layer Options is Show/Snap Others and Class Options is Show/Snap/Modify Others. I had other issues before with the Snap tool in a different file but it was related to slab objects only: (see link) - if anyone knows what caused it, it's difficult for me to understand what is the cause of most of the issues I experience with VW. It's like: one minute everything is working, and then without changing any settings next time I open the file things go weird.
  6. What I do at the moment is creating Layer filters, so I can "group" my design layers for each floor. If you go to Organization > Design Layers > Manage Filters you can open the "Layer Filters Manager" and create filters that will be available at the navigation panel. I agree it would be lovely if you could expand a menu using the hierarchical display mode as you can do with classes.

    Slab disappears, crash when trying to edit. Bug?

    Hi Ida Having very similar problems working in Vectorworks 2019. I see that your post is from 2016. Did you ever find a solution? This is happening only to this one specific file, and to slab objects only. All slab objects in this file have the same issue. When I select reshape tool, the polygon handles are not visible. If I try to move the slab object, it disappears. If I try to create a copy of it, both objects (original and copied) disappear. If I try to edit the slab in any other way - boundary, modifiers, etc. - nothing is shown and when exiting the edit mode I get that same message: "The geometry for the slab you are editing can not be computed. Hit Yes to delete the slab or No to continue editing." Those slabs are native VW objects; with class "None" and "Z Ref: Top of Structure" referent to my stories. If I remember correctly probably all of those slabs were created from shapes using the AEC tool. After some reading in the VW forum I figured the best approach would be to delete and redraw all my slabs. The new slab objects have normal edit behaviour. But this is a complex project for a tennis club with multiple levels, so you can imagine how annoyed I am with this solution...
