  1. @Conrad Preen Worksheet report didn't update data upstream unless there is an extra step.
  2. This has been likely asked but I couldn't figure out how to search for it. I'm in a situation where across multiple devices I need to change a large number of sockets to have a new label. Is there an efficient way to do this either a find and replace from selection, or a data entry worksheet view where I would be able to change the labels on multiple sockets at once and see the change in my drawing take effect?
  3. Curious if I was missing anything in the imports that would allow it. So far no luck.
  4. Is there a known way to import an Adobe Dimension files directly into vectorworks?
  5. Hey all, I have been transitioning to a new device and pulling up a file my computer has been jumping to actively using 21 gigs of ram alongside my graphics card usage. This is me sitting in plan view on a file. Anyone know why the program would be pulling that much horsepower while just sitting? It seems like it would only go to like 16 gig since thats the recommended spec so trying to understand if there are settings or something weird that might be causing it to use so much.
  6. Using the walkthrough tool in gamer mode with multiple screens if I try to rotate my view the mouse immediately jumps to a different display monitor and I cannot rotate my view. I can still effectively use the look around tool in conjunction with the gamer tool but it does seem to be bugged to not function even in the most simple drawings. I have tested on both mac and windows to the same effect. Is there a fix or is this just a bug?
  7. I had to force quit with the pinwheel of doom. So I'm not seeing crash logs just system wakups and cpu resource.diag . But I cant wait over 15 minutes to change text, it just isn't feasible in a workflow so I had to force quit and redo stuff. Additionally theres been a slow down just clicking on different tabs causes like a 5-10 second pause. Just little things that feels like as the program keeps getting more "functionality" it loses its base efficiency.
  8. Question, I have had multiple cases where changing fonts, styles, and size of text has caused the program to simply crash. Is there any possible way to stop a process when you get the pinwheel of doom during something other than rendering? Just a stop process command?
  9. I am looking to purchase an improved computer in regards to performance doing large file renderings. I am curious what people would consider the ideal specs on both Mac and Windows. Stipulations is it would need to still be a laptop device as it needs to go on site to different locations at times but otherwise curious as to what I should prioritize. CPU vs Graphics cards and so on. Any thoughts or help is appreciated.
  10. I've been trying to make cable labels and keep getting the error "Drawing not numbered." On each of my cables I have the number section filled in and so I'm trying to understand what this error is referencing so I can rectify it. Any help is appreciated.
  11. Probably a simple fix but I'm struggling to figure it out. I have symbols that I have linked text to. When I do the text linking, #Text fills those slots making the symbol size appear huge compared to the actual symbol. Is there a way for the default of a symbol to be blank without it having the #text making the symbol larger? I've attached an image of the symbol with the text all blank.
  12. @ThreeDot I've always noticed it... just assumed I was doing something to cause it rather than it being an actual malfunction of the software. Makes it so difficult to navigate the view sometimes.
  13. Hello, Periodically I will have different files that will suddenly have strange effects every time I scroll within the file. I am trying to figure out if there is a common cause for this but for the most part I have no idea. I've attached an example. Scrolling Chaos.mov
  14. Would you be able to share the file?
  15. Gotcha, so that functionality does not exist, I wasn't just missing it in the options.
