  1. Mac question: Would/Should the "Uninstall" application do it's job properly and fully if the Vectorworks application folder had been brought over to a new computer vis Time Machine?
  2. Wow. Impressive. And great timing too as I am designing a restaurant right now where I will be using bulbs like this.
  3. Excellent! Thank you Jim for making these available and to all the speakers for their presentations! This year's Design Summit was once again fantastic. I learned so much and it was great to connect with other users from all over the globe. What a great community we've got.
  4. I'm wondering if someone here might be able to shed some light on this... What is the Window (and Door) Schedule's of "Front" and "Back" in terms of the images it displays in a Worksheet? Do "Front" and "Back" correlate to the model views of the same name? Thanks in advance!
  5. @Marc Powell I'm not suggesting the automated Migration process is behind this floating data bar oddity per se. I was just curious since migration does "interact" with the interface to an extent, so I was looking for a possible connection. Migration doesn't seem to be at play so that's not a concern. It does sound like the team at Vectorworks Inc is on top of this one so I'm sure a fix will come in the near future.
  6. Now that High Sierra is “out in the wild” here’s the official word so far...
  7. Hi Spotlight users, I have a workflow question for you... I have a Spotlight user who has pointed out that the previous (v2017 and prior) "Replace with Active Symbol" button in the OIP for a Lighting Device has been changed to "Replace Lighting Device" in v2018. In previous versions, the button simply swapped the active lighting device in the Resource Manager for the currently selected Lighting Device. This meant that you had to select your new Lighting Device in the RM first, then select the placed Lighting Device you wanted to swap out, then click the "Replace with Active Symbol" button. Now, in v2018, the "Replace Lighting Device" button in the OIP brings up the Resource selector... No more need to pre-choose the new Lighting Device in the RM before you press the button to swap it out. However, this change or operation obviously requires a slight change (or perhaps a reversal) of workflow, so it's taking the user some getting used to. Q: Is there still a way to replace Lighting Devices as it was previously done, by pre-choosing them in the RM and "pushing" them to the already-placed Lighting Devices? Thanks in advance! -Neil
  8. Patrick, when you say you migrated your workspace, did you do so by responding Yes to the actual migration question, or did you "migrate" it by another method?
  9. Out of curiosity, for any of you who are experiencing this, when you first ran 2018 what did you answer when you were asked about migrating from a previous version?
  10. Might you still have these available @Christiaan? Thanks, -Neil
  11. This would be a very handy feature! Great idea @David Poiron!
  12. I've been getting more and more requests for this from clients. it would be a very welcome feature.
  13. For what it's worth, I have been getting this error in the last week while trying to import into VW2017 DWGs that were saved out of the latest version of Revit. By default, Revit saves as DWG 2018 format, according to the person sending me the files. They had to a manually down-save to a previous DWG version for me to use in VW2017. Incidentally, I even tried opening the the DWG 2018 files in the A360 Viewer and not even THAT could open the files. Oh, the irony. -Neil
  14. @orso b. schmid, Can a single Workspace be shared between a Mac installation of Vectorworks and a Windows installation of Vectorworks? I have a colleague who has one of each computer, and two licenses of Vectorworks, and would like have a shared Workspace between the two computers. There is already a Dropbox folder shared between the two computers and a shared Template file is working well, so the sharing connection is good. I just wasn't sure if a Workspace could be shared cross-platform due to keyboard/character differences. Thanks, -Neil
  15. I (and many other users I know) would LOVE this. -Neil
  16. Very good idea! This would almost certainly help users explore new features and improvements earlier. -Neil
  17. With the recent SP3 Update for Vectorworks 2017 and the improved performance of 3DConnexion's Spacemouse Radial Menus, I'm curious to hear what other people are assigning to their Radial Menus... What about you @JimWand@Luis M Ruiz? Thanks in advance, -Neil
  18. Wow! That's a fantastic use of Marionette and superb results Stephan! -Neil
  19. This would be very helpful change. When I am training new (and even some experienced) users, it is one aspect that I do need to spend time "translating" almost every time. Disambiguating the two terms within the application would definitely help users' adoption of core concept best practices. -Neil
  20. Related to this subject... I've found a collection of HDRI backgrounds, each at a variety of resolutions (256p, 512p, 1k, 2k, 4k, 8k, 16k). Which resolutions are best used in Vectorworks? Which resolutions would be beyond what Vectorworks can handle or are beyond what would be appreciable? Thanks! -Neil
  21. Hello! Might anyone have a 2D/3D symbol of the American Standard ADA compliant "Murro" sink? (It's the American Standard sink 0954.000 in the Vectorworks libraries, but the Vectorworks Library version is only 2D.) Attached is an image of the sink, Thanks in advance, -Neil
