  1. I am using windows XP and I can not turn off or on any tool palletes. I tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling with no avail. I click and click and still nothing happens. Any Ideas.
  2. I hate to say it but Autocad has a lot of great features and one of them is how they handle snaping to objects. Not only can you specify as a rule what snaps you want to use you can override the presets at any time to zero in one one particular snap point. also If vectorworks can't do this they may be able to do this: Allow me to locate my curser over an object at any point on that object and press some key (tab in autocad) to rotate through all the available snap points on that object - another great autocad feature.
  3. We are working with the VW 10.1.2 on windows 98 and we are having the same problem but the solution doesn't work. So now what
  4. Just a note this may be a problem associated with items that were grouped when the drawing was converted from 9 to 10. It will take me time to verify but, my test seems to support this. I ungrouped everything then grouped some things that I still wanted grouped and everything worked fine.
  5. Ungrouping all the object and then selcecting them all and nudging them does work. I have no issues selecting or drawing objects before or after ungrouping them. And switching the view snap edit options have no effect at all. So it seems that that the problem lies somewhere in how things are grouped. not as a whole but when some items are grouped and some are not. Also I have problems using the smart cursor while editing objects in groups if the "view others while in groups" option is selected.
  6. You mis-understand. I don't mean reasonably slow like all of the other versions, I mean that VW 10.1 takes about 50 times longer to nudge than it does in VW 9.5.2. I tried the same command in 9.5.2 and it took about .5 seconds but 10.1 took about 25+ seconds. I also have the same problem if I select all and use the 2d reshape tool, draw a halo around what I want to move and try to nudge. I takes just as long to do this as it does to nudge the entire drawing. VW 9.5.2 did not have this problem.
  7. You can edit by holding the CTRL and double clicking the item you wish to edit in the RB.
  8. When I select more than a few items ie. 129 objects trying to nudge them takes a very long time. But if I group them, it works fine. We are having this same problem on all six computers. Most of them are running on clean boots and the CPU, Ram, Video, and Motherboards are different on each.
  9. I am also having slow down problems. I also am using VW 10.1 and converted the file back to 9.5.2 and tried the same sequence of steps to move a wall. using the reshape tool. 9.5.2 took about .5 second and in 10.1 it took about 30 seconds. I am using Windows 98 SE the file is only about 1.5 Megs and I just restarted windows.
  10. the 499 note limit may be true for the data base but try to use the keynote tool when you have more than 250 notes in a database and you will recieve an error
  11. Some issues I have with the VW 9.5.2 Keynoting system: 1. the maximum number of notes you can have in the database is 499, but the maximum number of notes the keynote tool can handle is 250, both of which is to small. 2. The label for the keynote should have an option to refer to the keynote name which is given when the note is created. I don't want the type in the label every time and the auto increment feature is not for everybody. Have either of these issues been addressed in VW 10 and/or are there any intentions to resolve them in VW 9
