  1. @Nikolay Zhelyazkov thanks againūüėÄ
  2. @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Thank you very much. The tool does pick up on all the lines! Very accurate, although the lines are serrated but nevertheless this is a big help. Thank you. Is this a tool that is being developed by VW Inc? Again, much appreciate this, I was trying to trace over a new design layer and this is so time-consuming.
  3. @Nikolay Zhelyazkov I am using 2019 SP6 (Build 522773). I thought I had the latest though.. do you think that's why
  4. @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Thank you can you please explain how you did it? I cannot open the file - see screenshot sadly! Do you convert that pdf to become a bitmap object? If I upload the bitmap image of the pdf file it won't work.
  5. @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Sure thank you so much! This is the bitmap file which once I upload to VW I would need to resize to 1:50.but I can't upload it on here so let me send you the pdf (but this is not a vector pdf) instead - I need to redraw only the outlined red area. Maybe I am doing something wrong? plan.pdf
  6. I have then selected modify --> Trace Bitmap ( using the bitmap file as above) --> The pop up box is set to 4 and medium. And then it seems the computer starts struggling (or worse crashes) and I get these crazy lines all over with no snap points. Does anyone know why? Or is there any alternative to get those snap points to I can trace over some of the plan? Hope someone can help! Thanks
  7. @unearthed I think I have managed! I simply converted my pdf to a bitmap file and then rescaled to size. Let's see how I get on now (this is my first time doing this). Thanks though.
  8. Hi guys, I am trying to trace over this plan using bitmap (this is actually my first time doing this) I need to red-draw the plan at scale 1:50 which is now to scale. I have uploaded the PDF and re-scaled to size. So far so good. Now I tried to go to Modify --> Trace Bitmap and this pop up comes up "A Bitmap object must be selected". Can you please help why I am doing wrong? Thank you for your help.
  9. Thanks @Phil hunt I have figured it out now - once i select ISO A2, the layer becomes 29.7m x 21m which should fit now! Thanks again!
  10. Hi guys, I am a little stuck here as I am trying to draw a plan which is roughly over 20000mm in width and it won't fit on my VW sheet (see screenshot). I already have that plan at a scale of 1:100 on a large printed paper which I need to re-draw at a scale of 1:50 and then should be be printed out on a A2 sheet. Can you please advise? The size of the plan does not seem to fit as the width is only 4850mm (?) Thanks in advance for your help.
  11. @Pat Stanford thank you very much - It now works - much appreciated!
  12. Hello, I am drawing a one-point perspective drawing and need to render the floor - see picture. If I use the image from attribute (wood) the default direction of the woodboard will be vertical but I would like it to be horizontal. How can I do this? If I select the image and chose rotate this will rotate the whole object not the actual image of the wooden floor. Same goes if I want to scale the object if I want the floor to appear bigger in foreground and smaller in background. Even If I flip horizontally but nothing doing...Can anyone advise please ?
  13. Thanks for this. I am going to give it a go. @@Benson Shaw
  14. @cberg agree on that one with you. and thanks so much@Jim Wilson for clarifying this - this is going to help me.
