  1. we have a project outside of the UK and working with the local architectural office there. We use Vectorworks and they use AutoCAD. For the better workflow, we said we can use their layer system. I managed to import their dwg files but how do i import their plotstyle? What is the best way to do it? I have their CTB file but can't work out how to import the plot style to vectorworks. Thanks for the help.
  2. Hi, I'm new to Vectorworks and wondered if someone could help me out. I have an elevation (Elevation A) that is repeated in several different drawings with different ways of cropping it. To be consistent with all the elevations, I've created a new file only with the Elevation A drawn. In the Section file, I referenced this Elevation A and used Viewport to bring it in. This way I managed to crop the viewport as i need without redrawing/ pasting the Elevation A to all the drawings. My question is when it comes to sheet file. So in my sheet file, I referenced Section file and obviously, the Elevation A and cropped viewport are unreferenced and not seen in the sheet file anymore. What is the best way to solve this so I don't need to re-reference and re-crop Elevation A for sheet file again? Also, I assume there is no tool like cropping Symbol as we have in AutoCAD? Thank you for your help!
