  1. @Pat StanfordIs there a shortcut key to toggle on and off "Object Retention Mode" in the Move by points tool? Also Tape Measure? Or a way for me to add one to my workspace? Thank you!! (old school, prefer keys as much as possible for speed 😏)

    Crash test dummy

    @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Thank you. Oddly enough it has not been crashing lately. The driveway is turned on and it is odd that it shows it as it is rendering but the final does not show it. I will remember to do a screen recording next time I have this issue. (hopefully does not happen!!)
  3. I figured it out.... my linetype was set to fence! 🙃
  4. I have my floor layout as active and active class as none. Yes, I was working on this file and everything was going swimmingly and then I inserted a 2nd double patio sliding door and the entire drawing started giving me loci when drawing new rectangles or inserting doors. I closed and restarted VW and they were still there. You can see in the second clip, the first slider I inserted has no issues, that work was done yesterday. Did I accidentally turn on some setting I'm not familiar with? I have not tried printing yet but it is distracting while modeling. Im attaching the file for reference. Thank you! 20.10.21 G ave 839 v2021.vwx
  5. I"m having this same issue but everywhere nodes/loci are showing up. I have nonplot not visible and class for loci on doors are nonplot. hide guides is set.
  6. This file keeps crashing SFR Bldg 2. It has a reference file SFR 2, which does not crash when working on it, if I go from a sheet layer to a saved view in design layers. I am attaching both. I would prefer to not have to recreate this file (again! did once already and it didn't help). I have trees turned off as I was thinking that was the problem...but still crashing. Any help would be appreciated! (this file also created a 258mb, which I grabbed a backup so as to not use it) Also viewport of aerial view does not show the driveway on top of the surrounding area but it does in the other views, I have no idea how to fix it. SFR Bldg 2-Backup-20201020071830.vwx SFR 2.vwx
  7. FORUM stars save me again! Thank you all...
  8. Thank you! I also stumbled upon the "Enable Cut Plane at Layer Elevation" which also worked for my situation where the openings go to the floor... but I will definitely use this technique, also a "duh" but I have a lot of those in my newbie-ness.
  9. I have large openings in a CMU wall that show up as solid, how do I make them dashed line type? I made the openings with a bottom offset from top of slab. Thanks VeeDub Forum
  10. Yes it worked. Thank you!
  11. Thank you! Will give that a try!
  12. Why does the one wall not fit correctly to the object? I have tried different styles and it still leaves a gap. I checked components but I can't figure it out. Thanks for any help 20.07.27 Woodman_1_shed_roof.vwx
  13. Yes got it! That is what i was suggesting and then use the saved views for turning the layers that hold the viewports on and off, I think that makes sense?
  14. Did you see if I had something wrong with the text size by chance? my head scratching isn't solving it I do have the problem if I create new text but I just duplicate text I already have and change it, it is fine.
  15. Thank you both! I do have the models completed so I probably will not break them apart *great food for thought on planning future projects thank you!* I think I understand how I need to set up the hopefully most efficient CD sets. I think the master site model may be a bit tricky where I want to turn on and off the different versions. Let me know if this would make sense and do-able: use design layer specific DLVPS to reference each version of the model, controlling with what is visible in each viewport. Toggle on and off the design layers that contain the different version viewports and then create saved views for however many different site options I want to show. Once client decides on site versions, I can eliminate the viewports / design layers that are not longer needed. Thank you, I feel 100x smarter than I did this morning 😁
