    Unable to see the drawing

    I have recently upgraded from Apple OS 10.4.11 to OS 10.5 and i am running Vectorworks 10.5 also. Since upgrading i cannot see the details of any of my architectural drawings as there appears to be a hatch on each drawing. The drawing prints ok, but i cannot work on it due to the hatch like background. This appears to be directly related to Mac OS 10.5. Any suggestions please. Gerry

    VW Opening issues

    When i click and open a Vectorworks 10.5 drawing it opens as a viewer, which i cannot work on, until i open the VW programme and then click the drawing. Is there a way to open a drawing that automatically allows me to work on it. Also when i open the VW programme i always get a blank sheet, which ii don't always want. Can i get rid of this or change the format? Gerry

    When i try to export a VW10.5 drawing in JPEG format, i get a message stating 'Could not export image due to lack of memory", Is this the VW memory, which i have tried to increase but cannot, or some other programme's memory? Gerry

    I have recently started a new drawing, 2-D, and started dimensioning it. The dimensions are invisible? Any suggestions please.
