  1. I Agree completely. I've had to create separate files where I render extruded boxes just so I can actually see the difference between the textures.
  2. Agree - totally useless when you can't really even see what you are looking at. The same goes for textures and image thumbnails - can't see enough to tell the difference between them.
  3. This is an unbelievably frustrating problem we have encountered throughout the last 10+ years and never seems to get resolved. For all the time we have spent correcting drawings that have randomly had referenced files shifted, Vectorworks technically owes us money.
  4. Why did the help menu move to the right side of the screen? I think this change is really silly and makes for an annoying transition since almost every other software wiki I use the menu is on the left of the screen. Why do you insist on changing things that aren't broken to begin with?
  5. Rendering a section view is not well thought in VW - here's why. You can't include a background/sky that extends past any of the objects in your viewport. So it will look like this with the sky cut off at the roof. The only workaround is to place an object in the background with no fill or line at the height you would like the background to render.
  6. I have this problem too.
  7. This is ridiculous. What is the point of using a database for notes management if it doesn't have the ability to spell check?
  8. I've noticed over the years that when you save a file in a rotated plan view containing referenced files and then re-open the file later all of the referenced files are no longer located properly in the file. For instance you have a civil survey file referenced in to your architectural site plan file. For ease of drafting you rotate the plan view so objects are orthogonal 90deg to your view. if you save and exit this file when you re-open it your civil file will no longer be located where you need it. This has been a HUGE problem for our office over the years and makes the 'rotate plan' tool pretty useless and in fact dangerous. VW 2018 SP01 MAC pro 2009, 64gb, 12-core 3.33, 12gb titan pro
  9. Yes sure, here's one. Atelier_vierkant.vwx
  10. 2018 - SP01. I just tested this in other files and it does the same thing in every file I tested.
  11. Chih-Pin, I have a rotated plan view in the left pane. I have a perspective view in the right pane. In the right pane I am not unable to select 'OpenGL' from the rendermode dropdown or 'view->rendering->openGL' menu. As you can see from the attached screenshots there are, oddly, rulers displaying in the perspective window pane. When I change the left pane to a non-rotated plan view I can render in openGL just fine.
  12. It took me a while to figure this bug out - If you have 2 view panes and one is in a rotated plan view the other will not render in anything but wireframe.
  13. Am I missing something? If you try and Document Setup>Sheet Border/Title Block and select your newly created 2018 title block style it's not there. Only the default content is available. How is it possible to create a document wide title block?
  14. Alan, Were you ever able to figure this out. I too am puzzled by this tool association with roof/wall clipping. If the core roof component is set to be clipped by walls for instance is the wall supposed to extend all the way to the roof component in question and be clipped at the angle of the roof? Or will the wall always have a square top section no matter?
