  1. has this issue been resolved yet? I still have it in VW 2019
  2. I am having the same problem. My origins in referenced file have jumped and no longer aligned with the annotations of viewports.
  3. Hi Matt, I turned out that the issue was related to whether the display planer objects box was ticked. For some reason when this box was ticked the 2D data did not appear as well. Thanks, Fergus
  4. Hi, I am having trouble with getting exported 3D section viewports to consistently appear cleanly as an exported DWG to match the PDF viewports. Viewports on a sheet that are plan section viewports or detail viewports often lose their crop box and the DWG line data is very unclean or does not appear at all when exported. Fills are also lost. I have attached screenshots to show how the bottom drawing is not appearing after exporting as 2D graphics in model space and re-imported into rhino. It appears as a block instance and once exploded appears a coloured surface and not cad data. The Hidden Line dialogue box is selected for foreground render. Help with this would be greatly appreciated as it makes sending clear well annotated information to consultants from 3D model in 2D very difficult.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  9. The create layer link tool actually worked well for creating floors. I have to got o fundamentals workspace and then it seemed to work.
  10. 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?
