  1. Often times I run a command and vectorworks takes an exorbitant amount of time to compute. This time I was trying to convert an exterior elevation to lines. It has been running for about an hour now with no progress. There needs to be a way to quit commands without loosing your work. Or just fix vectorworks so it doesn't take so long. I am sure if it used 100% of the CPU's it would be much quicker.
  2. When using the move tool to create duplicates is great but often I forget that I have set the copy to on and increased the number of duplicates. It would be nice if there was one button to reset it to 1 and turn of the duplicate option.
  3. I wish that there was an option to make some objects that are hidden behind other objects to appear in rendered images even if the object it is behind is not transparent. See the attached image. PARTIAL FRAMING MODEL.pdf
  4. Could the "BeginFloor" command be replaced with a simple extrude? If you ungroup the floor, it becomes a floor and a rectangle. At this time the floor can be rendered by setting the correct attributes.
  5. Love the script but I do have a question. Do you know why the countertop does not have the correct texture in VW 2019
  6. This modification corrects the issue but it seems to me that if the points are read from HCenter as inches then they should be passed to RegularPolygon as inches. HCenter(h,Px,Py); RegularPolygon((Px*25.4),(Py*25.4),(9*25.4),6,1);
  7. Yes, I did try adding the unit to the script but that does not work either. The size and the location of the created polygon are still 1/25.4 scaled.
  8. I have attached a file with two scripts in progress. It is a script that I was developing to replace circles with hexagons. The first version doesn't work as expected. It creates the hexagons but they are 1/25.40157 sized and location from the origin. I modified the script to multiply the X,Y coordinates by 24.40157 and the size. This places the hexagons in their proper location and size. It seems that the script is converting the units to mm from inches. If I set the drawing units to mm the first script works Script Error.vwx
  9. Oh, how much joy it is to see that your file was backed up just before Vectorworks begins to not respond and you can just kill VectorWorks instead of waiting for the 20-30 minutes for it to come back to life.
  10. Not responding all of the time. I will not be sending Vectorworks any more money if they do not get this fixed soon.
  11. I have created a test file (attached). It seems to me that it is rather slow to update the viewport when all that is being shown is a 2d component of the symbol. Am I doing something wrong? Test.vwx
  12. Please add an overhead COILING door option to the door tool.
  13. The 2018 version is just slow all around!! zooming in and out as well as rendering and rotating renderings. editing PIO's. etc.
  14. Did you ever solve this issue, I have the same.
  15. Does anyone know how to use this (FUNCTION SetDashStyleName)function? I would like to make a vectorscript that can change a dash style of a selected object to a predetermined dash style by name.
  16. I would like a way to explode complex line types and also I would like a toggle option to be able to snap to objects in the complex line type.
  17. I wish that in addition to being able to turn viewport layers On/Off/Grey there was also an option to turn them "ON Dashed" or "Grey Dashed". I know I could do this if all my line types were attached to class options but this is not always feasible but it would be nice to make an entire viewport dashed lines.
  18. I wish there was a command to explode complex dash lines to a group.
  19. Below is a script by Peter Vandewalle and it work fine as a command or from the script palette but if I run it as a tool the angle constraints don't kick in to the second object duplication. Does any one know why and how to fix it. I like this script vs the move by point tool because it makes a duplicate object at every point that I click. and I don't have to keep switching the move by point from retain objects to not retaining objects. Procedure CopyPt; {Peter Vandewalle, 14-03-2003} LABEL 99; VAR ObjHdle,NewHandle:HANDLE; xi,yi,xm,ym,xp,yp,X,Y:REAL; YesNo:BOOLEAN; SelNum:LONGINT; Procedure do_error(s:STRING;v:REAL); BEGIN AlrtDialog(Concat(S,' = ',Num2Str(5,V))); END; BEGIN Absolute; SelNum:=NumSObj(ActLayer); IF (SelNum=0) THEN BEGIN Message('Select object to copy:'); GetPt(X,Y); SetSelect(PickObject(X,Y)); END; Message('Click reference point'); GetPt(xi,yi); YesNo:=false; xp:=xi; yp:=yi; REPEAT Message('Click endpoint, double-click to exit'); GetPtl(xi,yi,xm,ym); IF ((xp=xm) AND (yp=ym)) THEN GOTO 99;{Check 4 double-click} Duplicate(xm-xp,ym-yp); xp:=xm; yp:=ym; UNTIL YesNo; 99:ClrMessage; DSelectAll; RedrawAll; ClrMessage; END; Run(CopyPt);
  20. Is there anyway to call the "Move by Points" command from a vector script and set the parameters.
  21. I would like to know if there is a way to convert a 3d poly to a 2d poly in the layer plane so it moves in 3d the same way that a 3d poly does, not converted to the screen layer as a hidden line rendering of the 3d poly. If there is not a way I put out this challenge for some one to write a script that would do so.
  22. Ok correction the resetObject does not work the class does change but the objects are not reset.
