  1. Hello, We have space labels set up for permitting documents, and until now we have had to create separate labels for each story because there is no automatic gross elevation showing the height of the slab. It's very strange since the slab is usually built before the finished floor. Why is there only a finished floor elevation and not one for the slab? When is this coming and why can't we just add it? I'm attaching a screen shot of the label in question. We are using the French Belgian version so we have NF niveau fini (finished floor), but you see we have to enter in the NB niveau brut (slab elevation) manually.
  2. Tech support answered the question. It is not possible to activate a demo version. You have to re-install and then enter the license key.
  3. No, it isn't activated. And even if it were, how could I change the license number? In the past, I could always find a "Licenses" button under session.
  4. I downloaded a demo version and then got my license number assigned. When I go to Preferences and then session to activate the license, it is not there. Where did this go?
  5. Wow, thank you so much for the in-depth explanation. That is really helpful!
  6. Thank you for this answer! But I am a little confused. If I have edited the notes and I do this, will it update the database with my edits? If one of my team mates updates the notes and I want to add those newly updated notes to my plans, how do I do that? In other words, is it updating my notes on the plan or is it updating the database? Is there a way to choose?
  7. Has anyone found a solution for this? We are preparing to go back into lockdown and when we put our notes database file on Dropbox, it doesn't work at all. If I work on the file and connect the notes to the Database file on Dropbox. It uses the full folder chain down to users/my computer name/project number....But when my colleague tries to update a note, it can't find the database from her computer because it is users/her name/project number.... This set up makes no sense. When the database file is sitting in the same folder, why does it need to find the entire folder chain? As long as it is sitting in the same folder, it should just directly connect to it. Is this at all possible to do? I should add that we can't work on the VW files directly from Dropbox. Way too slow. We download the VW files to our computer and then want to link to the Database. Either it should be able to find that file on Dropbox without issue, or we should have a simple way to point to it so that all of the notes stay linked. Having to double click on each note and update them is insane.
  8. I resolved this by duplicating our favorites file and renaming it. After that it wasn't a problem to attach it as a favorite file in the resources manager. It's a work around though. Not sure what was causing the problem. Oh, and sorry, I meant we were using iMacs.
  9. I was doing some house cleaning with our office file folders. I renamed the library folder that our Vectorworks favorite file was sitting in, and now we can't see this file in our Resource Manager. I tried adding it again and nothing happens. I removed the file from the folder, restarted Vectorworks, and I can't add it from my desktop either. I have also tried restarting the computer and I went through the permissions. Nothing has helped. I saw a post about removing it from the "cache", but I have no idea how to do this. If anyone can walk me through that, I would appreciate it. We are using Mac Pros. It is happening on all of our computers.
  10. Thanks Boh, Unfortunately, the gradients are all on the same, general furniture class. Your idea of deleting the gradients out of the resource manager might have worked, but we found the solution is to edit the symbol in 2D, select all, and then change all the attributes to style of class. Still a bit of a pain, but goes faster than trying to take the gradients out individually.
  11. Thank you drelARCH, but the work involved with editing every furniture symbol in 2D to put it in wireframe would be overwhelming. It simply does not make sense that a GL rendering is coming through when looking at the plan in 2D wireframe.
  12. We are using furniture symbols in our floor plans. We are happy with the type of furniture, but these symbols are coming in rendered even when the plan is set to wireframe. Without editing each symbol, how can we get these to appear in wireframe?
  13. We're still discussing that, so thank you again for the pdf.
  14. Thank you so much Peter. That is helpful to have.
