  1. Hello everybody, please excuse if this has been posted before, I've been searching for it but didn't find anybody to have the same issue. I'm working on a massive map, which i need to export to illustrator in order to continue working. The document is fairly big with 2000*600mm on 1:5000. My issue is that, when i export it to pdf, all the lines become kind of wobbly, straight lines have dozens of curves and appear thicker than normal. The document itself is a mess, i've got it from a colleague, originally it was an illustrator document, but due to the massive size i had to convert it to dxf and edit in in vectorworks. Now i reduced the number of objects, but can't get it back to illustrator, when i export the document to dwg, illustrator wont open it (unknown format, despite me hitting "open dwg" and selecting the .dwg document) I hope i could express myself in a clear way, if anybody could help me, i'd be really happy. Attached you'll find before and after screenshots of the issue. Thank you very much for your efforts and have a great day! kmdf
  2. @Jessica G. unfortunately i havent, im just working without the luxury of having a second screen now
  3. @Art V thanks for responding! I tried setting the smaller screen as primary monitor, but windows somehow doesn't let me, as soon as I hit the box to set up the second screen, it automatically switches back to secondary monitor. It works though that the drawing space is on the secondary monitor and all the pallets on the primary, don't know why..
  4. Hello everyone, hope you all had a good christmas (or whatever you're celebrating). I've got the following problem and was hoping somebody could help me fix it. I already went through several posts regarding similar issues, but none could help me. I'm using the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV_UX581GV (Win10 Pro 10.0.18362 Build 18362, i7 9750h, rtx 2060, 16GB RAM, two 4k monitors 3840*2160 + 3840*1100). While I haven't got any problems dragging pallets and windows used in illustrator, indesign etc on to the second screen, vectorworks just doesn't want to support it. I can drag the entire application down to the second screen and then use my mainscreen for the pallets and extra windows. But while Vectorworks is open on the bigger main screen, I can't use the second screen, pallets just disappear as soon as they hit the other screen. Funny thing is, I can drag pallets to the bottom edge of the mainscreen and have parts of them show on the bottom screen. Attached you'll find some pictures, please excuse that they aren't screenshots, but I don't know how to take a screenshot of both screens in one. I illustrated them a bit for you to see what I meant to show you. If you've got any questions or need more information, please let me know. Thank you very much for your efforts Konrad
