  1. I use the 2 side buttons for layer-up and layer-down The wheel button as command-O to bring up the layer/class/etc.. properites window the Top button I have set to various Layer / Class views (Active Only, Gray Others, etc ..) my middle mouse is still set to pan -- think I'll change to something else Mabye Orbit
  2. Hi Gerard .. Isn't this the opposite of what Symbols are meant to do ??? ugh
  3. Thanks Pat ! I'll check that out! I"ve missed that since 2008! Go figure Thanks Ethan
  4. Truthfully "workshets" are such a great concept .. but the usability is so piss poor that - IMO - you really have to invest a lot of time to get them right. To this day, there is not an easy way to know what parameters are called. Calling parameters inside the sheet is a hit or miss whack-a-mole I usually have to create a report with ALL parameters and then sift through to find the ones I need. Then I have to create a new report (or delete a lot of columns) to get the report correct. Also - if you rename - i think it was layer names? - you have to go back into the report and re-call them? This entire system - like much else - needs a re-write. I'll say it again ... NO NEW FEATURES --- FIX THE ONES WE HAVE !!!
  5. This is the technique we use to get hidden line as well ! Kevin beat me to it
  6. Thanks Jim - yes that was it - the filelname was long and convoluted ! appreciate it.
  7. I'm getting this error on DWG export? anyone find a solve?
  8. Hi all, Trying to export a DWG and getting the enclosed error about a Teigha library? Any ideas? Thank you E_
  9. Copy that - explains a lot.
  10. Thanks Rob - Found them! Its bit odd as some are in the Service Select folders and others in the libraries folders. Question - once downloaded - is there a way to integrate them into the OIP Pallets? ie. if I download the new Espon Projectors or Meyer Speakers - can I use the Spotlight tools to insert them into my drawings? Thank you
  11. copy - think it is an error
  12. Hi Jim, That is what I thought - but some of the libraries (like the ETC Power Library or SquareLED) were not there - I had to go to the Service Select Portal and download them. Is this correct - or is something not connecting on my side? Thanks
  13. Question - aren't the subscription libraires supposed to be available via the Resource browser>VectorWorks Libraries ? Do you actually have to download them?
  14. If I have a large 3D Model of a venue in my drawing. Are you saying it Is better to ex-ref the 3D Model? Lower file size and faster performance? E
  15. Question on webview. When I create the webview via the cloud services - it generates a sharable link. Is there a way to get that link anytime afterwards? Or is this the one and only opportunity? E
  16. -- Update -- I realize that as I continue to work on my file and navigate around- the view-port is obviously knocked out of the correct rotation. So I have to go back to a "Saved View" Prior to exporting each time? Is that the workaround? To confirm that I'm always in the correct orientation for my design layer / sheet layer viewports to pick up the correct view? (Sorry - tired , I'm not sure if that made any sense!"
  17. Thank you - this method is a great workaround. I agree - simply turning the clip cube into a view-port would cut out many of these steps. I guess it would require 'instances' of clip cube - similar to view-port cameras? Seems a great tool though
  18. Thanks M_ Trying these out. I'd like to see an 'official' version for 2018. It seems this should be something updated since 2014? Thank you Ethan
  19. Man- it really feels as if .VWX is being left behind on many fronts Thank you
  20. Hello all Is there a 'definitive' recommended settings for nVidia GeForce Graphics Cards? I'm back to the PC and have not found any good answer. I"m having a decent amount of performance issues that I don't believe I should be having; as my new PC is epically superior to my 2012 MBP - yet my performance has not significantly improved; and in many cases has regressed. Help please! Ethan
  21. Seems this should be stock somewhere in vwx !
  22. I see that Maxwell works with ArchiCAD and Cinema4D - does it allay with VectorWorks? What would be the workflow ?
  23. I'm on a Gigabyte Aero15x - decent enough - they are coming out with a new model in the next months that will probably be way better Current has the 1070 Max-Q But the new ones will have the new chips and probably fix a keyboard issue that is annoying.
  24. Very cool render view. I've been doing the OpenGL without color to get quick white renders. E My screen grabs are a little ye
  25. Hi Jim, It is a bit better - once the file is drawn and loaded. Also - my screen flashes to black sometimes while it is redrawing? Is this normal? Ii sent you the file in a private chat. Could you open it and check it on your machine? Yes, There are a lot of tables and chairs - but its not a skyscraper or anything extra complicated Thanks Ethan
