  1. Thanks for the info. After writing, VW has been crashing nonstop. I was in 12.5.2 and will update.
  2. I just upgraded my machine and am now running OS10.5.7. When I opened VW12.5, the ruler showed as filled with "noise", like a sand pattern. Any ideas on what may be causing this/how to fix? Thanks!
  3. Katie, while you're at it, another graphic bug is that the line weight of the door thresholds is controlled by the door jamb setting! One would never want the line weight of the jamb (heavy) to look the same as the threshold (light). If you know a way around this, please let me know.
  4. I have windows in a plan with walls that are filled solid grey to indicate they are existing. I would like to have the windows in the same wall also show filled jambs, as I'm able to do with the doors. However, when I try to do this with windows, the whole window shows filled, including the sills both interior and exterior. dis be craazy. I can't find a setting to fix this so only the jambs show filled. Please don't tell me to turn off the sills, I bought this program for its graphics!
  5. As a novice, I was wondering what might be the best way to become the subject of one of Petri's insults? I feel really left out. I have posted, but so far, I haven't heard a peep from Petri; but then again I tend to only ask questions about line weights.
  6. Very sad. This program used to handle this type of thing so well, especially compared to the other modeling programs. Such is progress.
  7. I've noticed that when the thresholds are turned on for a typical door in a wall, they take on the line weight of the jamb in plan view. This is sillier than tree squirrels with bridal gowns coming out their butts. Does anyone know why or how to override this crazy setting. I would like to use the lightest line weight available for thresholds in plan. Perhaps I'm missing something? Feed the freaks!
  8. Do you think its possible we're the only ones? This seems like a huge ball of fire you don't want to play around with twice! Any veterans out there care to comment? Or am I just stupid to rely on the undo tool to undew?
  9. I was using the eyedropper tool to update some doors in a floor plan, but made a furr-duck and used it on a door that needed to remain as is, so I sped off into command-Z land and found that not only wouldn't it undo the action, but it deleted the door, leaving me only a wall with a hole in it! No amount of "undo" would get me my doors back! What planet did I visit? Whats going on here?
  10. thanks much! One of the problems I have is that although I'm making a free form object, I'm making it from rational dimension circles so that a carpender can easily lay it out. So I need to use arcs to connect the circles. But it seems that your suggestion will work regardless.
  11. I'm trying to create a freeform undulating shape composed of arcs where all the arcs are tangent to adjacent arcs. I find this easy in sketchup but cannot figure how to do it in VW, without a wholesale "construction" of something I want to be freeform. How do you do it?
  12. My window settings are set to class 'None', there is no fill asssociated with this class, yet the window displays grey. I am working in plan, and the window showing grey is distracting like an old man with no pants. There must be a solution!
  13. What I don't understand is why it all of a sudden went grey. Is this a 12.5.1 thing? I'm afraid to select any of my other windows, as they are fine!
  14. A window in a plan I'm working on turned grey when I selected it, which is to say, it became filled, though not the whole window, just the sill/stool/sash, the jamb remaining unfilled. I searched all over for a class within the window that might be hiding a fill that became engaged, but there is nothing. All parts are set to class "none", which has no fill. Any ideas?
  15. Nice drawing. Do all line weights have to be added afterward? I can't tell if there are more than 2 line weights.
