    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    That is what I meant @Nicolas Goutte, yes. Thank you for clarifying. Since @Andrew Davies had asked about the plan for VW2018 and Mojave, I thought he might like to see the mention of the plan on that page. @bpbpbp As for discussion on the topic, that can certainly take place here of course. (And welcome to the Forum by the way!)

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    I believe this article mentions the plan.

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    For a little perspective... Launch day Mojave sounds like it needs a bit of work too. Read more here.

    Snap / constrain function not working

    At the moment that it is what's advised until Vectorworks can be confirmed compatible with the new Mac OS. I know how tempting and easy Apple makes it to upgrade, but it doesn't hurt to wait a bit to ensure compatibility before upgrading the OS.

    Snap / constrain function not working

    While @RGyori is correct that the most likely culprit is Vectorworks and Mac OS incompatibility, I don't believe VW2018 and VW2019 are confirmed compatible with Mac OS Mojave just yet. The official Mojave compatibility article can be found here. And if you need them, instructions on how to downgrade from Mojave to High Sierra are here. Older versions of Vectorworks (and other software that is out of its development cycle and that relies on internal components of the Mac OS) are not typically updated to run on newer Mac operating systems. Apple often changes the Mac OS enough "under the hood" from one OS to the next that trying to update an old version of software for a new OS can be a tremendous amount of work, if it's even possible at all.

    Renderworks - is it worth the effort

    @Andrew Davies I just happened upon this comment of yours about Vectorworks Cloud Services. I hope you’ve had a chance to check it out since you posted. Cloud Services is actually great for individual users, because it’s like you have a second computer available to render your sheet layers. It does quite a bit more too. The descriptions along the bottom of the login page help explain what one can use it for. If you haven’t given it a good look, I encourage you to do so... It can add some rather interesting abilities to your workflows.

    to renew or not to renew (that is the question)

    @Aspect_Design If you are indeed still running VW2018 SP1 as your forum signature states, it would be good to update to SP4.

    Trainings in/near Seattle?

    Welcome @cleonidas! While I don't know of any in-person training in Seattle per se, I can recommend that you start out by doing relevant the Getting Started Guides here. These will give you a good introductory knowledge to using Vectorworks. Another great head start into using Vectorworks for Entertainment and Events is the Spotlight Virtual Training that Vectorworks itself offers. Keep an eye on the training calendar for upcoming dates. I have done the course myself and it's superb. In addition to the training above, another very good resource to have on hand is the Entertainment Design manual by @Kevin Allen. I hope that information helps. -Neil

    Finding IFC objects by "tag"

    @David Poiron Can you tell what that tag refers to in your particular file? That is, what objects are similarly tagged?
  10. @dbrumbach I see what you mean... That is very interesting! I haven't used the workflow you describe myself, but I can totally see how being able to re-assign a Design Layer for an object within a group could indeed be useful. @JimW Might this "change" be a bug of sorts?

    Basic pallet is blank on opening VW 2016

    @jeremybWhat a coincidence! I saw this very same thing yesterday in VW2016. Doing as @JimW suggested should work, as should simply dragging the bar at the bottom of the palette to stretch it taller.
  12. @hlagos If Ion’s suggestion didn’t work for you and you are not able to post the file, then I’m stumped too. I’d suggest testing with Vectorworks 2018 if you have access to it. Beyond that, if you still have tech support coverage through your distributor you could try running the issue past them.

    "Owned" doors and windows uneditable

    @baronjutter This sounds like the same thing you were dealing with in March. (Previous post is here.) What did the firm that created the file say about the doors/windows and the plug-in used when you contacted them?
  14. Neil Barman

    "DIALOG" doors??

    @baronjutter Is the firm that provided the file to you DIALOG, based in Vancouver, BC? If so, what did they say when you contacted them about the doors and windows?
  15. Interesting, @Ion. I hadn’t seen this one. @hlagos It would also be great if you filled in your signature here on the Forum so that others know what version of Vectorworks and hardware/OS you are using. This information often helps diagnose issues. Thanks!
