    Project Sharing and Dropbox

    FYI for anyone here. We have had HUGE issues with referenced resources using dropbox and now OneDrive as well. We have some projects with master files having 50 or more referenced resource detail files. The reason we need a cloud service is we have multiple offices in different locations. Complicating things further we use both mac and PC. EVERY TIME a file with references is opened at the other location ALL of the references have to be re-referenced REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THOSE RESOURCES ARE ABSOLUTE OR RELATIVE file paths. Iv'e read other user blogs regarding Autocad on this and it seems it works fine there with cloud services. This seems to be another massive headache UNIQUE TO VECTORWORKS. If VWorks intends to market enterprise scale offices this will have to be fixed - otherwise do not use this software if you are a large office with multiple locations and need cloud sharing.
  2. Why are we still waiting for this? We don't really need to edit 3D contours on the fly in a 3d view - WE NEED CORNER FENCE POSTS THAT ARE SQUARED!!! I CAN'T EVEN SEND THIS DRAWING OUT TO BIDDERS USING THIS TOOL SINCE I DON'T WANT TO ARRIVE ON-SITE TO SEE MY CORNER POSTS INSTALLED THIS WAY.
  3. I would also like to know how to do this. I have years of resources I need to convert and we are not going to change to 2019 until this can be converted.

    DWG file importing problems

    I solved the problem by copying the files to the desktop. For some reason they crashed the program when trying to import them from the server

    DWG file importing problems

    Wondering if anyone can help. We have an entire set of civil files we need to import and every one of them crashes Vectorworks. I've tried on mac and PC in both 2018 and 2019 and get the same effect. I've attached 1 for starters. Any help from the team is always appreciated. SP7998-PR-P3.dwg
  6. With this tool as it is currently it is virtually impossible for anyone to tell what lateral pipe connects to what drip area. What is needed for this tool to be usable is that the connection point to have a small dot or other symbol to signify what line connects to what drip area.
  7. Here's an idea - make the breakline tool useful - Currently we have to create a breakline, explode it, copy it, draw in a white polygon fill and send the fill to the back to create the image below. The other option of course is to clip all of your detail graphics - either option is stupid. A better option would be to have a tool that works

    Text margins in worksheets?

    I WOULD SECOND THIS - LONGE WORKSHEETS OF MANY ROWS WITH AUTO HEIGHT ON THE ROWS IS HARDLY LEGIBLE

    Split view errors

    If you try and edit the same sheet view - annotations layer on one side and sheet layer on other - the sheet layer view turns the entire page microscopic.
  10. Why is there a difference between the reference marker text alignment vs. the section marker? Both are default scale of 1 but the text wont fit in the reference marker because the alignment is different. ARrrrrrrG!
  11. I don't know why you would want to have a sheet layer list with the ability to re-arrange the order and not automatically adjust the numbering. Can you please imagine a sheet layer list of 50 sheets and having to add a sheet somewhere and shift sheets around? Can you please study this possibility? Thank you

    Break line trim

    Just wondering why the breakline tool can't respond to 2D polyline inner boundary fill tool or trim tool? I guess we are supposed to explode them every time we use them? Is that the intent?
  13. The hardscape tool would be greatly improved if you could actually generate a materials schedule with it - one that includes the manufacturer, model/color, and installation notes and detail reference. I can't find any way to reasonably do this - am I missing something?
  14. The title says it - there is no way to make the keynote bubble match the callout it is linked to. Is this a known bug? All are on same design layer at same scale note the size of the callout and the size of the circle in the legend. I have tried and tried even on an annotations layer there is no way to make the bubbles the same size other than setting the text margin to 0. Seems pretty elemental - Am I missing something?
  15. In spite of what Vectorworks touts and a BIM modelling tool, the Hardscape tool isn't quite there yet. The major issue with this tool is the fact that if you are using it to modify terrain none of the edges or corners can connect lest it throw a slew of errors and not work well. I don't k now anyone who would issue cad files to a design team with poor drafting where edges and corners don't meet - as is what is needed for this tool to work properly. I know this is likely a difficult math problem to solve but the reality is that this tool is not yet useful until it is.
