  1. I suspect that in prior iterations the fonts were automatically re-mapped to Arial by default, and I missed the bit about prioritizations. @Rick Berge gem of an article, thx. PWF
  2. @inikolova Thanks. That resolved the issue. PWF
  3. @inikolova If it’s helpful the font in the contact fields is Yantramanov, available at fonts.google
  4. The fonts are pulled from the same folder VW uses to call fonts locally. I began exploring this after receiving the email Iskra mentioned about missing fonts. Practically, I'm not opposed to this, the current set up was the result of being very new to the software and running into resolution issues between exporting from gd software, drawing, web publish, and printing that I have probably grown out of. This however, only resolves the issue illustrated with the logo, and not the alignment and/or wrapping issues in the other fields Philosophically, I think a product that asks for a significant investment from its users should work as it is advertised. @inikolova Thank you for the detailed response, I agree the font looks like it is being mapped to Arial but I am not getting a notification about missing fonts. I did receive those emails in my initial experiments and have since included fonts in my cloud folder per VW Cloud docs: "Place the font file anywhere in Vectorworks Cloud Services". Based on re-reading, I can confirm they are .ttf files but I am unsure if they were converted in the process of uploading to cloud folder. One is custom that I built using a tool similar to fontForge and the other imported from Google fonts, then both installed as system fonts. I am pretty sure I pulled them directly from Font Book to upload to cloud. I will explore a little more as time allows and reach out if I discover anything. PWF
  5. I have custom fonts used for branding that are not being properly mapped to title blocks when using cloud publish. First screen shot is local, second is cloud. The differences seem to be either in size or line weight. What are best practices/things to keep in mind when using custom fonts or other custom settings in cloud publish? Cheers PWF
  6. Cleaning up and updating my plant library and I've noticed something odd with plant objects. They are retaining some kind of mapping to the "none" class, despite the entire object being assigned to another class, and graphics being assigned to their appropriate classes. The screen recording and attach reprex are plants populated from old drawings and plant objs that shipped w/ v2022, please excuse the redundant classes. I've tested this in a blank drawing as well. Is this expected behavior? If not, how to resolve? Thanks, PWF Screen Recording 2022-11-11 at 12.50.57.mov 2022.11.11_forumReprex.vwx
  7. In my experience, the level of detail I include is directly inverted to how much I enjoy talking to the installation contractor.
  8. For posterity and anyone else coming across a similar issue: I've been able to self-diagnose while waiting for tech support that this is related to working in full screen. There seem to be other issues with floating palettes appearing outside the fullscreen window, or migrating to the active desktop. For me it's the resource manager and attributes palette. This was not an issue in previous versions (2019-2021) and seems like pretty basic u/x stuff. PWF
  9. So looks like the update didn't push to this post...specs are 2021 MacBook Pro, M1 chip, 64 GB, OS 12.5.
  10. I updated signature this PM. Specs for MacBook Pro M1 are accurate. OS is 12.5 and the mouse switches between a Bluetooth Logitech when mobile and Bluetooth Evoluent in studio. I keep timer settings off, just had it set to 20 for demonstration purposes
  11. Ugh, I was sure I had covered all the basics 😵‍💫 Thx
  12. Upon upgrading my hardware, upgrading VW to 2022 and w/ latest service pack, migrating my user folder and workspace preferences, and several bouts of restarts and tweaking, I no longer get a smart options display when tapping space bar, middle mouse wheel, or waiting 20-30s. It just doesn't appear. Sometimes, on a Monday, after the computer has been shut down for the weekend, it randomly pops in for a visit. This lasts maybe 1-2s but if manage to catch hold of it, the icons simply disappear, even if I've been to the gym that morning. More often, the settings icon randomly appears on screen somewhere, not in the vicinity of my cursor but off to the side, down in the corner, wherever it feels like really. Possibly this is due to my response to the feature when 2021 was released, I thought it was cute but not super relevant to my daily work. Now it knows I need it, and it is being coy. Seeking suggestions for reuniting with my smart options display. Sweet talk? Jewelry? Spice? What does it want? Attached is a screen recording of me doing all the things and getting no results.

  13. For anyone is interested in racing tech support. I have a site model picking up a texture from a texture bed and displaying across whole site model. I can disable the texture in class settings, but site model simply returns to solid white, not what is in the site model settings. Restarts etc bring no joy. Reprex attached. Winner of the race will be announced as a reply to the thread. PWF forumReprex_siteModelRendering.vwx
  14. Perhaps an overall "Cat Supervision" mode as part of the complete toolset. Mine has since been promoted to Chief Executive Officer, due to her talent for sitting around looking important and delaying projects by several days when she tries to "help."
