  1. Try playing with the 2d/3d conversion import options. Text from autocad files is sometimes in 3d and can disappear on import if its not converted to 2d
  2. Thanks for that Islandmon. I had assumed the lastest system update would know it. Feels like summer already in Auckland today
  3. Similar to Roberts suggestion I'd do it with as a wall with a dashed cavity of the same width. Doesn't look as good at an angle though unless there is a way to square off the dash edges.
  4. Mike thats interesting to hear. The operator in question does have an extremely untidy desk so perhaps she has something else on her computer causing the problem It only happens with polygons apparently and not other objects.
  5. pwb While not wanting to disuade you from upgrading I'll say we have a copy of VW11 running on an intel mac. The only problem we have encountered is crashing when using the offset tool, otherwise it works as on a PPC.
  6. Sub layers perhaps? Similar to how classes can be organised.
  7. Yes it can. There is an option in the create class dialog box to control the visibility in saved views. I recall there also being a wish list item for this to be extended to viewports and thought it had been incorporated into version 12. It is of limited use though - how often do you want a new class to appear in every saved view or viewport?
  8. What interesting statements in absolutes. I have an almost entirely opposite view. To leverage the power of cad and minimise errors i try to use elements, including text, only once if possible. So such elements are likely to appear in more than one viewport. I annotate in both viewports & design layers but mostly in design layers. A couple of examples: common dimensions on floor & foundation plans, room names on floor and finishes plans. How to achieve this: classes
  9. Having viewports default to class none, with the alternative option to assign the active class would work wouldn't it? - as per the dimension classing options.
  10. eDrawings is totally reliable for me too and is the best viewer i've used
  11. Me too. I put this on the wish list some time ago but it didn't get a huge response http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubbthrea...=true#Post52831
  12. Hi Daryl. No I don't frequent the sketchup forum. I haven't had the time to explore sketchup in any great detail unfortunately. Cheers, Grant
  13. Daryl I've used the formula preceded by ROUNDDOWN or ROUNDUP in excel. Haven't tried it in a VW worksheet but would expect there is something similar.
  14. Jodyb17 you can already lock individual objects such as grid lines so they won't move if that is what you mean. Edit menu/lock. This is slightly different to Christiaans request I think.
  15. Christiaan The method described by G-Pang in this thread works pretty well. http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubbthrea...=true#Post53094
