  1. Hi there,

    I know this isn't probably the typical workflow, but this is something we've experienced since ConnectCAD 2019. Is there any way around sockets pasting in place way off from where they were copied from on the schematic layer? From my limited knowledge I would assume it's to do with how planes work, but would love any explanation and workaround if someone else knows. Pictures below to explain it a bit better. This is the best case example, usually they're pasting way off which is time consuming to 'Fit to Objects' and drag it back to the device.

    Thanks a lot!

  2. First off, love the new functionality of "Navigate to Other End of Circuit" in the OIP for arrow connections in 2021. I'm guessing I know the answer, I didn't see it in the plug-in manager, but I was just curious if there's a way get a keyboard shortcut for that "Navigate to other end of Circuit" Function? Thanks a lot for the help.

  3. Thanks a lot for the response Nikolay. 

    So after your response I tried opening up the 'Test 2020' file in 2021 and I still get the extra socket information. I tried clearing preferences and reinstalling 2021 to see if that may have been a factor and it still opens up the file with the extra sockets in 2021. I also didn't experience the changing layer reset as you described. When I changed layers on the design or device layers neither reset the sockets. 

    However, after the reinstall - whether it was the newest service pack or the fresh install, the sockets are selectable and are able to be deleted in the 3D device layer. After deleting and re-saving the symbol all seems to work well. Still strange, but I'm just thankful to have a workaround. 

    Thanks a lot,

  4. Hey there, wondering if anyone else has experienced this, or has a better workaround than rebuilding all the blocks. I submitted this to Service Select portal, but haven't heard of a workaround yet, so we've been sticking on Vectorworks 2020. 

    We've switched to ConnectCAD this past year and have built a pretty extensive schematic block library of our own, to add a bit more of a polished look. However, the blocks we've built, when opened in Vectorworks 2021 from 2020 seem to hold extra information in the 3d layer that is not selectable nor deletable. Screenshots below to explain it a bit better and a couple example files.

    Would love any help, and also to know if there's any cautionary thoughts to consider with the roadmap of ConnectCAD and not losing, or having to redo all the work we've put in to our own custom blocks.

  5. I assume this is a setting I'm missing somewhere. Does anyone know why there would be Loci populating on the cable tool like this? I've dug around in settings, and it replicates on a brand new document. 

    The cable tools were working great in 2020 for me a couple weeks ago, not sure what I did to get here.

    Thanks so much,
