  1. Hi Guys, Make the texture transparent. Works then. Dont think its right to have to do this. Try layer and override opacity there Brendan
  2. I have had this problem with Pc to mac transfer. The mac shows no vectorworks recognizable icon? Save file on hard drive on Mac. Open from within vectorworks if you can. Brendan
  3. I have version 7 of windows 64 bit. Since updating to 2010 no help files?????????? I pride myself on not often having to go to the help files. Since this upgrade I have never had them. Adobe air sinks as far as I concerned. On installation it hangs for hours. What programming rubbish. Can NNA stop this love affair with fixing something that all ready works. Why Adobe Air when everything worked fine before?? Was hoping SP3 fixed it. Please as the end user no big rave as to what I have now to do. Just make the dam thing work. Brendan
  4. yep yep yep..... how may times I have done cool presentation stuff,(imho)only to find some spelling mistakes. Good ask. I wish techos who write software also had to spend long hours doing documents. B
  5. Why, Well when I install it hung for hrs. I gave up. I want to go to help files. well what a load of nonsense. It falls over. For years everything fine. I have had adobe products for a number of years now . I want to say this. They are following Windows Vista and going for bloat At least windows 7 has grown, it seems I know What all you Mac users are all Thinking !!!!. But its true. Is NNa so related to it that it has to use this junk ?
  6. Hi Benson I here what you are saying. But dont blame V/works solely for the problem,its with double translation with autocrap. The file transfer data dont you think. Its like converting English to Spanish to French. You have to blame the in between language as well. I was a cnc operator in a past computer life( a cnc operator for a joinery company ) , it feels like you are really in the groove. Problem is the whole cad system from start has been built on cards That is auto-cad(because they were first) There is your delema really. What we really need is a really good cad data transfer system. Not smashing V/works Please note I am yet to relieve a backhander Cheers Brendan
  7. I know this has been asked before. Ability to batch print a number of sheets as jpegs or any other image for that matter. When you have file with a large number of images as pdf does not do well, they can be hideously huge files. So jpeg is best Just had a job where I had to manually print and name 19 sheets printing jpeg. yes tick boxes, change res. check file size. Imagine a 30 something page file. Whats with that for workflow blah blah blah.... Brendan
  8. I would like for good presentation reason the ability to to have 3d hatching applied to walls and stuff. Yes I know we all ask from time to time, buts its due. Imagine how cool hidden line rendering could look with this in sketch. This is the most significant visual capability missing from Vworks I reckon at present. Brendan
  9. This is really small thing but...... Sometimes placing text over a dark background I have text white for clarity from background,eg commenting over a dark image. When text is white and you edit Vworks should switch it to black automatically as you cant see the text you are editing. Sure sure you can do work around by making it pink, yellow or blue but I like it to be white all the time and not have to change it back. Brendan
  10. Just thought a good idea everynow and then to look at all the good work done to date. Sometimes these forums can be all about the annoying stuff.. Im going to start -Love the screen plane layer plane options for 2d objects. - Also dimension editing capabilities. - Real assosciate dimensioning, you ajuste the dim. and the wall changes . Thats great a little clichey but good stuff. - Attribute mapping of hatches and images. with thwehatches this is awesome now. Jump in guys. Brendan
  11. Heres the thing. I left it alone after a couple of days. You know how it is. Mike contacted me by email and prompted me to revisit it. I had tried every button check box and slider I though could have that was possibly related. Adjusted the "page boundary opacity" of the Interactive View Settings.... no joy. So I switched to black background bang there they were. Switch back to white bang there it was. Funny way of refreshing the screen but hey finally there. Go figure. still OS thing I believe. No colour pickup for page boundary tho. Still dont really care. Its fixed , I dont know why but it is for now. Thanks for all you interest and help. Cheers Brendan
  12. Thanks for all the interest everyone. I had tried all these. You know how it is you go through huge mental gymnastics to find out what is not working when it has for years. Even if i changed my interactive view settings to pink this does not change. Cheers for all the help to date. Brendan
  13. I dont know about this. I can see the advantages for volume calcs. But imagine how slow things would become to render. Imagine radiosity. B
  14. Thanks Mike Yes thats true but still means Jack. I cant see the page cells. Real baffling. Im thinking sure it one of those cliche things. Damm. Brendan
