  1. To add some more info here.. In Big Sur latest beta and VW Designer 2020 SP5, I spent the last few days working in a file doing some simple things.. (corrections for a permit cycle) doing a lot of annotation editing in viewports, clouding, callouts etc.. and experienced no issues whatever.. This is simple stuff.... not modeling, stair tool etc..BUT.. I hope it bodes well for 2021 and Big Sur. (YMMV) I do NOT recommend anyone try this unless they have backups of both system AND all of the VW assets that you're using...
  2. Just for information, this is a fresh install of VW Designer 2020 SP5 on an external SSD, (same disc as the OS) I did not do any customization of VW (I do have custom workspaces and commands on my main install) Don't know if that has any relevance.
  3. trashcan mac, 2020 sp5, beta 5 of Big Sur.. I don’t have this issue. exit edit button displays normally
  4. @zoomer any feedback on Big Sur? I have an external disk with Big Sur to play around with, looking for compatibility issues and VW2020 seemed stable.. That's just playing around with some existing files, and not extensively.. what are your experiences..
  5. Very longtime user here... I fully agree with the contention that the icons in 2020 are a serious drag on productivity.. one can only hope that this will be remedied.. undoubtedly, 2021 is pretty frozen in terms of features.. I guess we’ll see very soon..
  6. hi @FBernardo did SP4 resolve your issue? Seems to be better here..
  7. I did a fresh install of 2020 SP4, I'll report back re: whether this shows up again
  8. Hi.. @FBernardo, yes, this does appear on elevations as well.. I have updated my installation of 2020 to SP4 and this issues seems to have gone away.. we'll see if it returns..
  9. I seem to remember that this may have come up before, if so please point me in the direction of the previous post or solution. I'm having an issue with the display of components not being consistently rendered. A particular roof component periodically becomes "invisible" and renders in outline only.. see the attached files. Seen in a design layer, the project renders correctly.. then when I create a sheet viewport.. some of the roof components display incorrectly as edges only. Yes, all classes are turned on and unmodified in the viewport. Yes I've reset my preferences, Yes, I'm using an unmodified workspace.. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. We really should be able to cause a site model to simply fill in the area around a foundation. Using all of the various site modifiers, .1" gaps etc is very time consuming and tiresome.. in other words, the foundation "is" the site modifier, since in many cases, that's essentially what happens... excavation occurs, foundation is poured.. backfill, and the site contour is more or less as it was, with the exceptions of some minor drainage slopes etc..
  11. I'd like to bump this topic.. I've tried a number of strategies here, without a bombproof solution. texture mapping mode consistent between floors, attribute mapping tool used to align the texture bitmap.. Often the hatch is still not aligned between floors.. Anyone have a reliable repeatable method here?
  12. I'm experiencing crashing as well.. VW itself, crashing at different times , it's been when working on VP annotations.. just last night, VW crashed on quitting the application.. Also, most concerning yesterday, VW kernel panic'ed my machine.. (first time in probably 10 years this has happened). VW crash log 02.rtf VW crash log.rtf Mac Pro.spx
  13. Hi all, taking a bit of a poll here.. how do folks deal with the large blocks of notes and text (code citations, other paragraphs of boilerplate)? Do you keep a library of formatted text, use the notes tool with database, edit text in an outside tool and import... all of the above Just curious how you all have tried to become more efficient with this necessary aspect of creating a drawing set. Thank you for your input.
  14. After updating to 25.0.2 (530873) I ran the repair utility to see if anything needed correction.. The repair fails to complete.. anyone else having this issue?
