  1. used to be able to select multiple objects (grid lines or datum for eg) and reshape line length by all simultaneously - what happened?
  2. just had the issue for the first time - odd. I was running vw 2022 and 2020 at the same time. Closing 2020 corrected the problem
  3. Hi 2022 - seems this was happening in 2007 or so. Custom elevation option greys out - close vectorworks restart..... works for a while, close vectorworks, restart works for a while....
  4. this is now happening in 2022 - shut down fixes for a while then custom elev option greys out
  5. i'm getting lags changing door label text size and memory drain as a result. Running windows 11 on a 16 core i9 w/ 64gb ram w/ a wx 7100 amd radeon card - this should not be happening that I have to kill and restart the program to keep working....
  6. I might have mentioned this before but increasing issue with callouts 'disintegrating' into lines and groups - frustrating that an automated feature of creating callout instances turns into more work..... the callouts randomly appear all over the drawing and refuse to go home or sometimes reappear but bring all their friends along. Makes for a stupid drawing.
  7. thanks Benson. I've had good luck with align surface in general but no this is simply the geodetic reference for top or bottom. I have a .15m hardscape and I want a modifier (stake or grade) to reference the top and some hardscapes reference to the bottom (seems random). I'll send a screenshot when I am back in that project
  8. Hi- modifying hardscapes and settings are for modifier at top and it seems to randomly work at top or not. Frustrating in that the workaround is to go back and set modifiers to adjust to the component thickness... Especially fustrating when it aligns to the top of one edge and then to the bottom of the next. Is this a known issue or is there something I am missing thanks john
  9. Hi - when adding a callout reference to a sheet the outline appears but the callout does not, when editing the annotation the grip handles show for the callout but again no callout - as a work around I switched the callout styled (or position) and it appears randomly on the drawing as circle, lines and text - (instance references are correct). This is happening across numerous drawings (randomly). VW2022
  10. probably more of a wish list item but is there a way to increase the decimal accuracy of the slope tool. Frustrating to show a ramp on plan at eg. 7.72% 'Fall' (also wish that term could be edited) and then on section at 7.7%
  11. is there a trick to placing a texture on the underside of a roof face - texture tool does not work nor is the object giving face options in the OIP thanks
  12. I'm having the same issue - running i7 8core with 32gb but this is with basic modelling. Am upgrading but not liking that processor with a bigger cache and twice the memory is still having problems
  13. the above is a very patronizing disclaimer?? - I've had the same issue continually and have had to restart 4 times so far modifying 4 slab drains running an AMD radeon pro WX 7100 'assigned' to vw - do I need to update a 1K card every 6months to modify a slab drain??
  14. I'm having the same issue across multiple files - wondering if it is a AMD compatibility issue - running radeon pro wx 7100
  15. that is all I found as well - I wanted to change the arrow and circle - figured the circle marker should be optional at worst. Oh well thanks appreciate it
  16. Hi - have been looking how to modify the 2d graphics for hardscape (class options don't affect arrows, etc). I am sure there is a setting that I am just missing...
  17. have been using slab drainage tool somewhat effectively to avoid 2d drafting work in sections. BUT how to deal with visibility on plan. It seems the slab slope lines have no controls other than linework settings for the entire slab. Am I missing something? thanks john

  19. i've had that issue as well but not recently - this is different and happens in copying in both iso or plan views. Waiting to see if it re-occurs in 2022
  20. Hi this issue seems to be continued in 2022 - commented on previously no responses symbol of a floor layout prior to editing a door - editing the symbol and making a change in the door OIP plan is still considered a top/plan view? Have to exit symbol and re-enter to continue editing - is getting tiresome. Is there something obvious (or not) that I am missing? thanks john
  21. just went to plot a project and on a stairwell section (6 stories) was amused (not) to find the stairs had gathered together on the 3rd floor for an impromptu party. stairs were properly on their layer but had shifted in Z either up or down. Visually was humorous in section but had to insist they stay on their floor in the OIP but had to retype a few times. On a 6 story building with a few stairwells this gets time consuming. I typically configure a staircase on the main floor and copy and pip to successive floors (adjusting the landing floors in the OIP as needed). Its gotten to where I will do this in an iso view to ensure they land where they are supposed to. Is there something in this to imbed the error? thanks
  22. this is definitely a bug - asked the question recently but no responses. Editing within a symbol of a suite - editing a door - the plan switches to a 3d plan plan view (or a mixture of both). Also a big lag in editing time - but that seems typical of working within symbols (this is 2021) - if you hover over the 3d door a ghost of the 2d plan is there anyone else had this issue? thanks
  23. HI - yes the bubble handle and line will align with the crop border (top and bottom) then the 'shoulder length' setting in OIP will either align it to the crop (set at '0' or raise it above however much you want. I discovered the end position does work but only if you use a bubble at the end position - in a viewport the line length (at bottom) can only be controlled by the crop - hope that makes sense
