  1. 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
  2. @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
  3. I (and many other users I know) would LOVE this. -Neil
  4. Very good idea! This would almost certainly help users explore new features and improvements earlier. -Neil
  5. What about you @rgcn? -Neil
  6. 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
  7. Wow! That's a fantastic use of Marionette and superb results Stephan! -Neil
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. All the new videos are fine and dandy @JimW, but I think that going forward they should be more like this one below. I find this presenter's explanation very clear and understandable. Without a doubt, I definitely feel completely ready to use this equipment the moment this video ends. -Neil
  12. It's good to see that this thread has been moved to Wishes Granted, because the new Forum is indeed great... and seem to be getting even better as more and more people bring their energy, enthusiasm and cooperation to it. -Neil
  13. I have Bluebeam Revu and I'm quite fine have the overlay (compare) and notation features in it, rather than in Vectorworks itself. Having those features in Revu means that far more people in my spheres can and will use them compared to the smaller number who use Vectorworks. This makes it so I encourage colleagues towards better and more efficient workflows without them thinking I'm trying to make them switch to my 2D/3D/BIM software. (That will come later... mwah haw haw.) Also, having Revu as a separate application that handles a fairly universal file format (PDF) means I can use it more quickly for documents created by other applications. -Neil
  14. @Erik B, I'm not able to reproduce the issue either. I opened your 2015 file into 2016 and it only went from being 1.5MB to 1.6MB. Also, did you mean that your file ballooned to 61,235 kB, as in sixty-one-thousand two hundred and thirty five? If so, in your original post it looks like the comma was replaced with a period, hence my previous question about that. -Neil
