  1. This may be a ridiculous question or one with a no answer . How do you import a mac file into windows & visa versa. Thanks poeple
  2. IsNewCustomObject I thought may work. Have set up a record that relates to the Dialog . This is good for after object creation then can load dialog from Record . The above function I Am trying to set up is before object creation. Maybe two Dialog setups in the layout routine . Good to here youre voice mate Go the Chiefs. Brendan
  3. I know why that Q was asked .I have imported and stuffed everything up.I dont know if there is a better way but I have a sacraficial import file and reconvert classes then bring into file. Any suggestions
  4. Yes there has been a reply to this before. With your selection tool on hit the shortcut key I(the wall insertion mode is turned off now) Now you can move this along the wall without dragging the symbol out . If you want to duplucate Hit I again and drag out of wall Then use the alt/ctrl key to place in another wall .Toggle with the wall insertion mode (I) Key if you must to reposition. Some others will probably have a better way Regards Brendan
  5. Yes your right I will think A bit more before I blab .Cheers
  6. Have u tried Edit Group . (Or Control[).It then gives u the option of editing the Path or the profile. Go into profile And shift the rectangle either side of the centre ,by default it applies it to tha center.And if you have to flip the rectangle 90degrees. Then control]to get out of the group. A bit of trial and error then your there.
  7. Before anyone aks this I will provide . Video Card is Nividia GeForce Fx 5200 128Meg
  8. By the way I have found this occurs with file having other sheets added with a viewer height that is different .If this is being naughty doing this how can one look up a stairwell or for that matter walk up one?
  9. Have a movie that plays very stilted. Saved it as video and animation but no difference . Updated my drivers .Is there any other settings I should change in relation to my video card. What about the QT file format is there a better option from the selection that allows some sort of file compression maybe PNG. 6000 frame 200 secound movie.30frames per secound .Rw settings are high with ray tracing and anti aliasing . Sorry if this is the wrong foram but wont to hit the most eyes on this on . Any input appreciated .
  10. Any had this or has a suggestion.In middle of saving sheets for a movie then this error pops up and parralizes me .Is there any settings that can help me here ? "one or more operations was aborted due to lack of memory" It will render but then this comes up. 9731kb file not overly big . 24 sheets saved and rendered. Have quickly in between the messages deleted some sheets ,saved rebooted ra,ra,ra no differece .

  14. Katie have tried with varying amounts just to see if i can get it to work.30,5,10 Brendan
  15. Yes I have used custom selection to just select 3d Loci.The error message is this'Error There isnt enough valid data on the specified layer to buld a DTM". I dont see what the difference is To 9.5 version? Perhaps I have Alzheimers and am forgetting something really basic. Again I have tried Polygons Grid still nothing. Thanks for the reply Katie.
  16. 10.5 Xp Pro Gig 1 Meg ram 128Video Used to use the Dtm frequently in 9.5 now I keep getting error ' Not enough data in source layer to create '. Have tried D polys , 3d loci which i prefer and tried grid . Have i forgotten to do something basic here .Or has the Dtm Changed in Version 10????? Regards all Brendan
  17. Have had a problem with a floor plan with layer links that once hatches are applied is very slow on zooming in and out.They are endeavouring to correct this Bring on 10.5.Have been suggested to use patterns instead of hatches as they are faster.I dont like the control of patterns that I have seen (lineweight so forth When zoom levels change so do they)Am I missing the point about VW here or am I trying to autocad Vw P4 ,Xp 2.66gig processor.128meg video VWA10.1.2 Your comments please
  18. Copy of question sent to Retailer in New Zealand Gidday Dave Its Monday morning and I have had enough. Have sent Queries to VW,s over TextSpacing problems and Slow down in zooming .Nemetschek has to seriously provide some back up .I have files with 10.1.2 that are uselessly slow when I zoom around. Also Arial text that every now and then places itself at a 1.5 spacing .Absolute rubbish to look at printing .. We need answers not silence .If it is something obviously dumb we are doing or a bug which I presume is the later, it needs to be answered. Grant(my boss) is quite unsure of switching us over to VW because of the lack of backup and answers, which I don?t blame. This in no way is helping us in production It is unacceptable. When you think about the sales pitch used that it speeds up draughting by sizable percentage. This is not the case at this point. It?s a pig when I have layer linked to a ground plan . Have hatches in my walls with text populating the Plan . Xp 2.66 meg processor 128meg ram video 1Gig ram . I have sent copies of my files to them .They are in the General discussion area. Now even Katie who tried to care is not there helping any more. Whats going on?. I personally think 10 has some excellent features that are intuitive, but when it wont do the basics properly its like a Ferrari that wont get out of first gear. Perhaps I have to learn Autocad Because Im not making money at this rate. Do you want me to show you an example or two? I hope this finds you well and happy but I,m not . Regards Brendan. Does anyone out there have any answers. I am only doing this out of frustration.Have been pushing the Vw barrow for some time now ,but am concerned bt the lack of answer Regards Brendan
  19. Text type is arial,size is 6pts, In symbol I have created.One example is an capital S inside a circle used as an symbol for a legend.Not imported from another program.
  20. Have a problem with text in files altering in symbols when you zoom in and out . The spacing changes by about one and a half.This also shifts the location of the text slightly and looks a whole lot untidy. Anyone know whats causing this ?. xp 128Graphics 1Meg ram 2.66 meg P4 VWA 10.1.2 Cheers
