    Roof boundaries (clipped eaves/ verge)

    Thanks for taking a look - it's odd that apparently this hasn't been noticed yet. I have files in 2018 where this worked so it looks like this was broken in 2019.

    Wall Seams on elevations

    Thanks Alan - I solved it on all the elevations - one of them was a simple matter of turning off 2d display objects

    Wall to roof association not working

    Thanks Alan. Though this is what I am trying to do - as shown in the image from the help here http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2019/eng/index.htm#t=VW2019_Guide%2FRoofs%2FCreating_Roof_Components.htm&rhsearch=creating roof components&rhhlterm=creating roof components&rhsyns= I am not able to accomplish this as shown no matter what I do - to have the core insulation clipped by the walls as in real life. You are showing the insulation going beyond the walls under the eaves - not how we would show it or build it.

    Wall Seams on elevations

    I've tried the suggestion above without success. Here's the file. Nothing I do removes the seam. Perhaps this is because I have the slab thickness factored in and the exterior finish extended above the top of wall? I have once again resorted to manually drafting elevations and sections because i cannot get any of these tools to work properly. WALL SEAM TEST.vwx

    Roof boundaries (clipped eaves/ verge)

    Just wondering if the root of this question was ever answered fully. I have found that none of these roof and wall associations work as advertised even in the simplest of cases. Take the attached for instance. I am able to get the roof insulation to clip at the wall only in some places but on the gable ends. No matter what settings are input I get the same results. This is created from a VWorks default wall style with 4 walls and a 'create roof' command. All the components are VWorks default library - I can't draw any other conclusion from this other than it is a tool that simply doesn't work right. ANyone else?
  6. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get a roof to properly meet a wall. The image says it all - the gable ends aren't working - the structural/insulation component is different on each pitch when the wall is the same along the entire side. All walls are properly joined. I've sunk hours into this -- I give up. Attached is the file if anyone can figure it out. ROOF TEST.vwx

    Wall Seams on elevations

    Am I missing something or is there no way to get rid of the seams between wall levels on a hidden line elevation?

    Framing Member Section Appearance

    really? Here we are in 2019 and this attempt at a usable BIM solution still can't produce basic section details? I continue to be at a loss for words each day with more discoveries like this.

    KEYNOTES - Bi-directional editing from keynotes worksheet legend

    I recently had to delve into an architectural drawing package and coming from the Landscape Architectural side of things I'm shocked to learn that the notes system completely fails here. Every architect we've ever worked with has included such a CSI format notes system on each sheet. The workaround above, though crafty and doable, is still a hack for something that is at the root of our daily work. That Vectorworks still has not solved this glaring failure is pretty depressing.

    THIS SPELL CHECK DOESN'T WORK

    Boh, Could you please send your worksheet? I'd like to know how to get callout content in a worksheet. Thanks
  11. This is silly. It seems to me that one could write a script easily to spell check an xml database - which is what general notes generally are. We have extensive general notes and keynote legend on ALL of our construction documents. To be able to spell check is elemental. Please add this feature ASAP.

    THIS SPELL CHECK DOESN'T WORK

    Perhaps I'm doing something wrong here? I deliberately misspelled some words to test this. All I get is that the 'word' 'Arial' - which is the title and body font of the general note - is misspelled. none of the other misspellings are noticed. Is there something wrong here? Does anyone use the spell check tool? does it work for general notes?
  13. PLEASE HELP. I AM TRYING TO SHARE A FILE WITH THE TEAM - WHO OF COURSE USES REVIT-AUTOCAD AND MUCH OF THE CURVED GEOMETRY IS EXPORTING AS SEGMENTED. NOT ALL - ONLY SOME -

    Mulit-Viewport Anomalies

    I often have issues using the multi-viewport feature where a the view on one side is f-ed up with different scales showing. The attached image shows the effect with the view split up. I have experienced this on multiple machines both windows and mac - all 4k and imac 5k displays. Sometimes closing one view then re-splitting the windows makes it go away, sometimes not.

    Faceted Curves in hidden line views

    yes thanks - that didn't solve the problem, Is is a Hardscape object and always shows this way with curves, no matter the setting
