  1. I have been having trouble using section viewports and hidden object display. I had set up a plan section viewport with: Open GL (background - colour) Hidden line (Foreground) I wanted certain hidden objects to appear dashed. Within the Hidden Object Display dialogue I changed two classes to appear as dashed hidden line and applied dash hidden line attributes to these objects. This worked and the drawing was as I had intended. However I updated certain components of model refreshed the sheet viewport and these setting no longer work. It appears to temperamental. In addition to this, fasteners and structural components do not show up consistently with hidden line attributes? This seem a simple drawing to create but it is very frustrating when it works and then no longer works. Help with a reason would be very useful. Also requesting for Gridlines to appear in all viewports, section and plan! Thanks for your help.
  2. It would be nice if the break line too had a fill that neatly obscured the drawn details.

    Grid Lines

    I find using the VW grid line bubble tool very cumbersome and objects often struggle to snap to the lines as well as if the gridlines were drawn just as lines. It is also very cumbersome to adjust, are their advantages to using it? Is there are quick way of transferring gridlines on plan to elevations or section viewports without drawing planes to transfer them to the viewport and then adding them within the annotation layer?

    Multi Floor Buildings

    The create layer link tool actually worked well for creating floors. I have to got o fundamentals workspace and then it seemed to work.

    Multi Floor Buildings

    I am currently using vectorworks to design a tower in 3D. I would like design one or two typical floor-plates that are repeated up the building. Does VW recommend a way of doing this that allows the floors to be constructed from multiple layers that are still editable?
