  1.  I think I figured it out. It actually has something to do with  when i created the symbol for the chair within the drawings. When I create the symbol in a blank new drawing and pull it into this drawing it seems to work fine without creating a 3rd symbol and editing it. Now the table is one symbol and the chairs are another plan1.thumb.PNG.d9444d7f6941ad37c05ff5f2f9cb5326.PNG and show correctly in both the plan and ortho view.


  2. Thanks, this does seem like a lot of extra work compared to other BIM programs where the 2D matches the 3D. It is not letting me rotate the 3D object in ortho view right on the screen. It only lets me put in a number and then it rotates way off the page. I guess I am just still confused how Vectorworks functions compared to what I am used to. Do you know of a video showing how to do this?

  3. I am new to Vectorworks and I am playing with importing 3D models from Sketchup and creating a hybrid object so that the 2D is simplified. I attached some screenshots where for some reason the 2D position of the objects does not match the 3D. I am not sure how this happened or why.
