  1. I am using the join tool and I have the toggle set to T just like I did in v.9. In all previous versions (at least since v.6) the T join would also extend walls to one another and create the desired L intersection with no problem.

    Now I see that the engineering has been screwed up on the v.10 tool so you actually have to use the L intersect for L's and the T for T's. Too bad it got more complicated. The old way worked just fine. The new costs time.

  2. No specific functions or actions taken. The times that it happened, I actually wasn't even using the app. I had gone off to do something else and returned to my desk only to find a message that there was a problem and the program would be closed. Nothing specific in the error message or the error report that XP send off to Microsoft.

  3. I feel strongly that one should be able to produce a plan in one file and then reference that file into another drawing to add layers of information or show more detail.

    Unfortunately, the current Workgroup Reference function doesn't allow you to change scale, rotate or move the referenced object. Actually, you can rotate, move and change scale but all is lost as soon as the reference is updated.

    And God forbid that the paper size/origin has been changed! The whole reference will land in a different spot altogether! See wish list item "Absolute, Unchanging Origin".

  4. Three years ago I started a new job and had to learn AutoCAD. Now I'm back to Vectorworks and I'm realizing how much I miss what I think is a really straight-forward drawing concept.

    In ACAD and ADT one draws everything full scale and then makes "Viewports" to show those same drawings at different scales. Makes it really easy to arrange drawing sheets. Finally, when everything is organized and the viewport scales set, you dimension it all.
