  1. Ok. to answer my earlier self... and for others who find themselves stumped by this. I solved it by going to Advanced properties under the section viewport, then the "Attributes" tab where I changed "Line Style" from "Use Class" to "Use Original". This worked for me. I hope it helps others faced with this problem. Matt
  2. Hi. I have been trying to export a sheet layer that shows elevations and sections. I am using OpenGL as my background render with Hidden Line as my foreground render. In the foreground render settings I am selecting a careful sketch style. This shows up nicely in Vectorworks. However when I go to export, the foreground lines are no longer visible. When I export with the hidden line not as a sketch style, the pdf works and shows the hidden line. I'd love to use the sketch style for a client export, so does anyone have any ideas what might be going on here? Images attached show the issue. Many Thanks Matt

    Rotating plan

    Thanks Pat and bcd. Good tips. I've been using saved views on and off for a while and didn't quite get on with them, as I was too used to the keyboard shortcuts (flipping from plan to elevation etc.). I'll try the viewport / design layer suggestion, this is something i've not thought of. Many thanks for the help Matt

    Rotating plan

    Hi. I'm working on a drawing, which is oriented by site plan so that North is pointing up the page. The issue is that when I wish to add 3D elements in elevation, I need to always rotate the plan using the "Rotate Plan" tool. This is fine, however it's starting to become frustrating doing this every minute or so... Is there a way of orienting the drawing permanently (so that it is at right angles) without altering the North point? Sorry if this is a dumb question... I cannot seem to work it out. Thanks, Matt
  5. Hi. I'm placing a window into a wall that has splayed jambs only. However when I select splay internal wall, in 3D it seems to splay the head and the cill as well. I only need the jambs splayed... Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? Thanks, Matt
  6. Thanks for the tip. I've just added the "custom stair tool" and have been using this to work around the problem. Wow, a blast from the past, as I had forgotten about this tool. I did notice however that the custom stair tool seems a little "buggy" in VW2020 as it does not render some of the treads as solid objects in 3D. I hope the standard stair tool gets updated to reflect this simple change. Many thanks, Matt
  7. Hi. I'm modelling an existing building with a stair that winds at the top of the flight and has no 'straight' top tread. See attached image. I cannot seem to get Vectorworks (VW2020) to model this stair without having a single 'straight' tread at the top of the winder. Does anyone know of a work around for this? Thanks, Matt.
