  1. Yes. There are no issues through any other software or accessing and/or editing files in those folders.
  2. can a mod please change the title to reflect 2020? I can't seem to edit it
  3. This was posted under the 2018 thread, but I am having the issue on 2020 VW Designer. I have been having this issue now for several weeks. Updated to 2020 and it did not solve the problem. I get "(failure to attempt to write to file)" in a window 4 times in a row. That is, clicking ok only brings the warning up again four times. Then a final message box that says: "An error occurred while saving this file. This file is now corrupt on disk. Try saving this file to a different location. If you close this file before you successfully save it, it will be completely lost" I am the only one with the issue in the office. I have no other issues saving to the sharepoint in other software I can save the file to my hard drive and then drag it to the shared folder with no issues.
  4. I agree. And I actually think there could be creative ways to make the other functions remain clean. Lumion has some nice symbols that depict complex ideas that are only whit on grey (as tshelton effectively created above - kudos to him). And those marketing videos always grind my gears. SOMEONE understands that creative professionals want this interface took beautiful, unfortunately it's marketing and not the UI/UX team.

  6. Russ, you've laid it out quite succinctly. One thing of note, as I am currently dealing with this, is that VW is very easy to train on due to it being GUI-based, with intuitive hot keys. Daftsmen are quickly trained due to the core elements being so intuitive. I had a new grad drafting in 2 days, and with the standardized templates and class system being wrapped up in the office this winter, that process should be done in a day. The designer functions are the trickier items, but there is always going to be an on-boarding process due to ACADs need for plug-ins, workarounds, or convoluted processes to achieve a firm's particular style. Anyway, your original post was spot on, as you were here. I don't think it comes off as petty. I think VW must recognize this as well, due to the high visual design of their marketing material and their stylized representation of functions within. I thought it very telling that those were the videos you show to sell the software, as does VW. 😉
  7. There was a post here that seems to have since been deleted from @RussU that I think was interesting regarding the look and being results driven. I totally understand that point of view, but for anyone having an outward-facing design business, perception is very important. Looking the part is important to instilling confidence, as well as reinforcing perceived competence. I'd like to be able to share my screen and not have someone think I'm working on a fresh copy of "DIY Homebuilder Pro" from Home Depot. Appearances are important, no matter how little stock engineers hold in them... sorry, i couldn't resist. 😉
  8. use polyline; freehand; or, draw a circle and 3-sided poly, add the faces, then clip at appropriate space to mirror a heart
  9. If I remember correctly, that has to do with setting visibilities of detail at scale
  10. Completely agree. GUI is becoming really cumbersome, visually. I had this exact thought of embarassment when sharing my screen duringg a conf. meeting. It just looks really unprofessional. The palettes, iconography, and organization could really use an overhaul.
  11. What do you mean by the second question? Do you mean through scripting, or are you just trying to change them?
  12. You can request a dongle-style activation. Just contact your sales rep.
  13. I'm having this issue. Folder working on colleague's Landmark 2020, but after directing to same folder in my 2020 Designer, it is not showing up, even after multiple restart and refresh
