  1. Thanks! I don't have VW21 anymore actually. I reached out to the local distributor in Sweden to report this as a bug, which I guess it is. It works when I right click the object, but then the point of having a shortcut is kinda gone. Thanks anyway! πŸ˜ƒ
  2. Thanks for the reply @Pat Stanford Unfortunately, neither of these options work. Not sure why this is, it worked out fine some time ago. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated πŸ˜ƒ Thanks!!
  3. Hi, I've assigned ⌘+Shift+1 to "Activate layer". All of a sudden nothing happens when I press that command. The class gets activated when I right-click on an object and then click "Activate class", but when I use the key command it doesn't. This also goes for a number of other commands that I try running. Why is this? Thanks! I'm on VW2022 and on a brand spanking new MBP M1 Max, 64GB Ram, 24 core GPU.
  4. Hi all, Vectorworks Design Suite 2022 - [B-hall.vwx] 2021-11-12 09-31-30.mp4 Can anyone teach me how to create a ground stacked trussbox without this hassle? The truss auto-rolls on me and I have no idea how to fix this. Bug, or is it just me? Thanks all!
  5. Hi all! I'm really looking into buying one of the 14" myself but honestly I have no idea what all these specs are saying. Can anyone translate to ordinary English? πŸ˜ƒ Jokes aside, the most complex drawing I've ever done so far is this one for the venue I work at (link below). Do you think that the cheapest of the M1 MBP's would be sufficient, or do I need more juice? I don't know computers a lot I just want them to help me do my stuff, haha. Thanks everyone!
  6. Hi all, I just updated to VW2022 and all my shortcuts are going crazy. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Now the Activate Class and Activate Layer just doesn't work. It doesn't even work when I right click and manually click the option. Any clue why this is? Thanks!
  7. Thanks line-weight! This is the look I'm after! So far the white model is quite slow but maybe there's a way around it. I'll dig through this post! Cheers! πŸ˜ƒ
  8. Hi all, I guess this is something people already know, but how do I make an easy and quite quick white clay rendering? Is there a setting in the rendering tab that doesn't take forever? Thanks all!
  9. EDIT: WRONG FORUM - MOVED TO "TROUBLESHOOTING". Sorry!
  10. Hi, 1. Why is it that 2D dwgs are super slow in VW when they are quite easy to handle in any other CAD software? How can I make them work better in VW? When I try to move around an imported (or referenced, tried both) dwg it takes seconds before it moves or anything happens. And it's a blank VW-document which has no other files in it. The dwg isn't too complicated and works super smooth in softwares like AutoCAD. 2. When I have made a crop of parts of the original dwg I want to use to make my 3D drawing, the crop doesn't "stick" to the dwg. I've changed the actual crop from Screen to Layer but problem stays. Hope this make sense. I have a drawing which have both section and plan view in the same dwg, and just want to split them apart so I can "stand" the section view next to the plan view. Just like Make Doubleday does in this video. Please let me know your thoughts on this πŸ˜ƒ Thanks! // martin

  12. That sounds nice! So, what windows do you have open? Would you mind share a screenshot? Just for inspiration πŸ˜ƒ
  13. Hah, yeah, I kinda' agree. I have a history in AutoCAD and the difference is huge. Whenever I open up VW I somewhat feel a bit ashamed of the UI.
  14. Hi, Just a 2021 update: how is this topic moving along? I'm looking forward to the day when VW looks, and feels, like a "real" professional software. Even though it's been 4 years since original post, and I've only used VW for about a year, I feel like the UI needs a serious update. What are your thoughts today? πŸ˜ƒ Take care all!
  15. By the way, do you understand why... 1. There are so many classes and layers still left in the "Lights only" file? They remain even though I've purged several times. 2. Why the single trusses act different then the box trusses in terms of looks? Thanks!
