    Import PDF issue VW2018

    Thanks, Mike. I just updated to SP3 on VW2018 and I still have the problem. WTF VW?!? No other software that I use has this problem. The desktop/internal drive solution is not a solution. I've gone back to and still working on VW2017. I will file a tech support request later today. Highly disappointing and frustrating.

    Import PDF issue VW2018

    Ok, here's what I've learned. Thank you, John, for the test idea. I have confirmed that this works with a PDF file on the desktop, or anywhere on the internal hard drive. Where it fails is when I am referencing a PDF file on my external drive, the main drive where all of my project files are located. So VW tech support…what say you? Feel free to contact me and we can work through this issue. For the record, I also updated to MacOS 10.13.2 (which I hope I don't regret, for other reasons).

    Import PDF issue VW2018

    Thanks for the responses. I will do my best to help track down the problem but this one is a serious problem for my workflow. As an environmental graphic designer I work with a lot of imported files.

    Import PDF issue VW2018

    Did anyone solve this problem? I am having the same problem. And it's got my work stopped dead in the water for using 2018. At first I opened at 2017 file with a linked PDF. It was missing on my design layer. So I deleted the file using the Organization tool and tried to re-place the file. No luck. This is a very big problem for me. I also tried different version of PDF 1.4 v 1.7 for the original file generated from Adobe InDesign.

    Callout & General Notes Auto-Fill 2016

    Any update on getting this fixed?

    Callout & General Notes Auto-Fill 2016

    Ok. This needs to be fixed ASAP. It's affecting my productivity.
  7. In VW2016 callouts and general notes are auto-filling/auto-populating such that the last entry in one of these tools pops up as the entry for the next one that I choose. VW prior to 2016 NEVER did this. And I can't think of a good reason why these tools should work that way. And if someone thinks of a good reason why these tools should work that way, then make it a user-selectable preference. With this "change" I have to do three extra keystrokes: Command+A to select all and then the Delete key. This extra work significantly slows down my workflow for the projects and work that I do! And another thing, if this is a feature it should be noted in the release notes and I can't find that it is. This wish list item is really a bug report in my book. Thanks! Scott Souchock VW user for over 20 years!

    Callout & General Notes Auto-Fill 2016

    Thanks, Jim for the reply. Yes, it's a bug. And it's especially egregious because the change has not been noted in any release notes that I could find. And I can't find any reason why anyone might want this because it adds to workload. If someone can find a convincing argument why this feature should be maintained make it an option for users. Thanks! Scott
  9. Since starting to use VW2016, after the first callout or general note VW auto-fills my last entry. How do I turn this off? I've searched the help and forums but I'm coming up empty. Thanks.
  10. Discovered today that AutoCAD apparently has these color books of palettes that can be loaded. Found out by ordering color samples on the Benjamin Moore website. It would be REALLY HELPFUL to many, many users if VW had color palettes more akin to Photoshop, Illustrator, FreeHand, Indesign, Quark, and so forth. And if we can import the values of paint systems like BM way, way cool and useful. We can, and do now, customize our palette by finding the RGB values, and entering them by hand, and hoping we pick the one from the palette in the right location. But isn't it time that VW gets some similar functionality to those other software mentioned. It's not a dealbreaker but especially for us in EGD it would be a GIGANTIC HELP. Thanks, Scott

    Postscript Printing

    My bad. You were right. Thanks for your help G-Pang!

    Postscript Printing

    The problem is I don't even get the options for Quartz Imaging. Options are missing! All I have is Application resolution, print current view only, and print patterns.

    Postscript Printing

    I need to print my VW12 file to PostScript and then run it through Distiller. In VW12 I am missing the option to select Postscript like I had in VW11.5. From the online manual (yuck) it appears that I should have this option but it is missing. Of course it's hard to tell because the manual doesn't include a picture of what the dialog box is supposed to look like (and it should!). What do I need to fix to get this essential (vital!) option back on my print dialog box under VectorWorks options? Mac OS 10.4.3. Did VW not install properly? Is there a know bug?
