  1. Hi All, i have an issue which is bothering my quite a time already and i would like to know if iam doing something wrong here. When i use the Spotlight tool "align and distribute" on a horizontal selection of fixtures it works like expected, the fixtures are aligned and distributed in the same order as they were initially. However when i do the same on a vertical selection, vectorworks reorders my fixtures seemingly "per type". Please see screenshots attached. I dont know since when i have this problem exactly but i can say that it is in 2020 the same as in 2021 EDIT: this happens always regardless which distribution mode i choose. Also depending on the initial position, vectorworks seems to reorder randomly, i dont get the pattern how that happens. pls see additional screenshots I have several workarounds for that already but iam wondering if iam doing something wrong here maybe or if somebody else experiences the same problem. TIA Michael
  2. Thanks Pat for your suggestion and sorry for the late response, i missed the notification of your post somehow However it seems to be not a problem of the user account, i did create a new user account in osx but the problem stays the same. I even did a reset on my preferences but with no success. There is always a small "thinking pause" in the UI after i click preview, so i assume the command is executed, but the preview is not displayed. I just verified that it works in vwx 2020 as expected.
  3. thanks for the feedback, idk whats going on here...it just doesn´t work i have no idea why...
  4. Hello All, here is another one which is bothering me since quite a time, the Preview in "Duplicate along path" just stopped working in vwx 2021 i guess, i am sure it worked in previews versions but right now nothing happens when i push the preview button. I have this issue all the time even if the duplicate works. it is just annoying because i would like to check before i hit ok. Has anybody the same issue or is it just me? TIA Michael
  5. OK after playing around with it, it seems that it is possible to attach several objects at once but one has to detach every single object manually, unless iam doing something wrong here
  6. Thank you very much Sir, this is exactly what i was looking for and i would never have found that in the rigging palette without your help! However, can i detach/attach several fixtures at once? I followed your advice of selecting the fixtures but when i run the Manage loads tool, i have to click on every single fixture to detach it...
  7. Hi All, this is probably a noob question but it keeps bothering me from time to time and i can´t find an answer to it in the search or anywhere else. Somewhen lighting fixtures started to get attached automatically to trusses, which is most of the times is a good thing. However, when i want to make the truss shorter for instance and i want to nudge the truss to the center again, the fixtures stay on the truss and i have to select them, nudge them back etc. I admit i don´t have learned the principles of hanging positions since i don´t need them actually for my mostly conceptual workflow. Most of the times, i just need to place fixtures on the right position and i don´t care about hanging positions and everything related to that. Most of the times i just want to select my trusses indepent of the fixtures and i don´t want the fixtures sticking on the trusses. Can anybody tell me please how can i deactivate this behaviour or what iam doing wrong here? TIA Michael
  8. Thanks to Jesse, it seems he pushed me in the right direction and the problem seems to be solved now. I assigned a text style to the class where the summary lives and since then i had no more issues with the text disappearing when publishing. It seems the Instrument Summary needs a class text style assigned, i´ve never done this before because it always worked for me. Howsoever, it seems again, like mostly, the bug sits in front of the screen 🙂 Thanks again and keep all safe and sound, Michael
  9. @jcogdell Thanks for your answer Iam working with exact the same Version 2021 / SP3.1 / Build 588748 However iam on a mac and still on osx 10.14.6
  10. Please find attached a testfile where this actually happens...maybe anyone of the vectorworks team wants to have a look at that! Thanks, Michael 210503_IS-Test.vwx
  11. Just want to let everybody know that this issue is back in VWX 2021 and does not go away with updating to SP3 This one just drove me crazy the last days since i have to fight with it on every reissue i have to do. Sometimes it works, sometimes it only affects one sheet, sometimes another. Thanks for the workaround with the eyedropper, it speeds up the process of renewing at least a little bit. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP !!! This is very annoying at not acceptable for a professional and quite expensive software and the fact that this bug is in the software since more then two years now doesn´t make it better!
  12. wow, thank you for your extensive answer, i really appreciate this! i actually just wanted to get rid of the dashed line but know i know a bit more about that whole title block border mystery 😄 thanks again and best wishes from the other side of the pond, Michael
  13. sure, this is the bottom line of the published pdf but i see the lines also in the viewports
  14. Hello All, i have created a custom title block and discovered a dashed line around it which is probably the papersize itself. i would like to remove this line but i cant touch it nor do i find any options anywhere to switch this off. can anybody help me here? thanks, Michael
