  1. Awesome! Thanks for the advice! The workgroup folders worked but now I'm wanting to use that same workgroup folder for VW 2021. Is it possible to share workgroup folders between VW versions? Currently that workgroup folder is being used for my VW 2022 Beta version. I tried doing the same exact steps for VW 2021 but I don't see the folder showing up when I restart the program. Would I need to make a separate library?
  2. Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to share an updated custom library between users in Vectorworks through Google Drive. I have built custom CAD devices and have been updating my template, but it's not as efficient since everyone would still need to download it and upload it to their User Folder. Is there a possibility if we all use the same User Folder on the Google Drive? How would I create my own custom library so that it shows up everytime I open Vectorworks? Thank you! -Nina Agelvis
  3. Hey Conrad, The files are now there but I realized that Notepad on Windows is different than Mac. So even if I was typing in the new Connector and signal types that I want. Vectorworks doesn't register it even if I save and quit and reopen VW. Should I use a different txt app instead of Note Pad?
  4. Hey Conrad, I tried following the steps but every ConnectCAD folder is empty. But when I access the user folder though my local drive then I see all the information in there. Is my user folder set up incorrectly? Thank you! -Nina Agelvis
  5. Hello, I am having trouble editing any of the Signal or Cable Type txt in my User Folder. Currently my license is owned by the company I am working with, so I am unsure if I have administrative power even though the serial number/license is under my name. Any changes I make and saving over the original file would show a pop up (image attached). Is it because I am not allowed to make changes to any existing cables/signal types in the VW program? Or is there another reason as to why I am denied.
  6. Hello! I was wondering if it is possible to add a new field in the Object Info Pallet for devices. I created a new label legend with an added field to the dev_rec Record Format called IP Address. Linking the text to the record format was fine and I was able to change the label legend on the device, but I realized I couldn't fill in the IP Address field because it doesn't show up in the Object Info Pallet, or in the records tab. If I double click on the device I don't have access to change the information on the legend label. For now I'm just going to add a text box to each symbol, but I really hope there is a way to add a new field and be able to fill it in. Thank you!
  7. Hello! I don't know if anyone is encountering this issue. But for some reason ConnectCAD won't undo properly. If I move a device accidentally sometimes the connector doesn't move with it but it doesn't show as disconnected either, and if I hit Undo it will undo the information but won't reposition the devices back to their original state. Yet if I try to manually move them back to where they were, the connectors would adjust and mess up my whole organization. It gets a little frustrating and sometimes it ends up crashing my entire laptop too. I don't really know if there is a solution to this. I have tried restarting the file, and restarting my computer, it no longer crashes but it still won't undo properly. Thank you!
  8. Hello! I am new to ConnectCAD and was wondering if it is possible to assign different devices onto different schematic layers. I was hoping to create schematic layers for different rooms I'm drafting. Each room has repeated devices, so while I was assigning the devices they kept going into the same layer. for example I would assign Device C in Room B into Layer "Room B" since I have everything set to ACTIVE ONLY, the devices will then disappear. once I have assigned each device to their designated layer, and I select Layer "Room B" again, everything in the object info pallet states that these devices all live in Room B...When I want them to be in their own layers. Am I not suppose to duplicate the Schematics Layer from the ConnectCAD template? If devices repeat in different rooms can they not be on different layers? or must everything be on the schematics layer and I must class each device in their own rooms instead of using layers? Thank you!
  9. Thank you Nikolay! So is there not a way to set the settings for creating a new device? I know that you can change the symbol through the recourse manager or double clicking on it to edit it and save it as a new symbol or replace the existing one. But when creating a new device it automatically creates a rectangular box (which I am hoping for it to be with rounded edges) and then with the default blue text that display Device name and Description (Which I was hoping to add another line for manufacturer). Is there not a way to have these settings set prior to creating the new device? or must these options be edited after creating the new device?

  11. Hello! I'm new to ConnectCAD and am running into the issue of editing the devices. So the company I'm working for wants the device boxes to have rounded edges and instead of it using the Device Tag, and Description, they want it to be the Device Name, and Manufacture/Model. Similarly to updating and creating label legends for lighting devices. Is there a way to edit the default legend of ConnectCAD Devices? Or do I need to go through every single symbol and delete the box and remake it to a rounded edge? But when I double tap to edit the symbol it doesn't let me change the device tag and description text box. I tried looking up online but am unsuccessful, and I feel like this will be wasting unnecessary drafting time but if that's the only way then oh well. 😅
  12. Hello! I am wondering if there is a way to link your VW on your website for people to navigate without needing to download the VW file or own VW. I was told that its a possible thing, I just don't know how to go about it. I would love for people to be able to look at my 3D draftings and navigate through the file on my website. Thank you!
  13. Hello! Just yesterday I was trying to reference one of my existing vectorworks file into a blank file. Usually it would display the reference window with the available layers and check boxes of auto updating your references, but this time it only showed the check boxes and when I confirmed everything, nothing showed up. Then suddenly it fixed itself, but then when I was walking someone else through their vectorworks on referencing the file, the same issue happened. BUT the strangest thing was that the layers ended up showing up with the classes but there was still blank, even in the resource manager. I'm currently working on windows and my friend is working on a mac.
