  1. Hi Pete In the preferences:
  2. Hi @mattryan Is it an older project opened in 2022? If so, I have learned that sometimes it helps to move the window by zero to make the plugin regenerate and the opening appears again
  3. You can always delete it, inside the annotation part of the viewport
  4. You have to select the active document. It seems you are choosing symbols in a not active document and the only option is to import.
  5. Hi @Thomas English If you click the name in the resource browser you can edit it, its also possible to right click end choose rename
  6. @ParkerJames You can drag and drop pdf´s to preview´s sidebar to make binders of single pdf files.
  7. Hi When using layer referencing its important to make a good system for layer names to avoid conflicts We use typically 6 layers for each floor and named by building, floor, purpose every floor have layers for slabs, walls and furniture, spaces for calculations, ceilings annotations for scale 1:100 and 1:50
  8. Hi We are using a workflow without stories and with old layer referencing like described her below: Currently we are doing the opposite as you ar asking for, a file with four buildings distributed on several layers, and referencing each one to drawing sets with sections and elevations for printing.
  9. About the misaligning windows: Got a complaint today from one consultant if I could fix the windows! This is the attachment:
  10. Hi @riccardo mazzoleni If they are simple extrudes, they have to have a solid fill. Check the attributes palette
  11. I have reported VW Window's (not Door's) Jambs and/or Sashes rotated by 90° (from vertical to "Layer Plane ?)
  12. Just guessing but you also might have some layers set as grayed in the viewport. Grayed layers render transparent
  13. Hi You can select the dimensions you want and then choose Menu / Text / and choose whatever font size you like
  14. Hi Liz I don't know if its help but one idea would be to export to twinmotion, then import to UE. For example exporting as FBX you can choose native VW organization, by texture, by class and so on
  15. I see I think you could use data-vis to achieve this: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FViews%2FCreating_a_new_data_visualization.htm&rhsearch=data visualization&rhhlterm=data visualization&rhsyns=
  16. If you uncheck unified view you should be able to see them https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FViews%2FUnified_layer_view.htm&rhsearch=unified view&rhhlterm=unified view&rhsyns=
  17. Are you on an unsupported OS version? https://www.vectorworks.net/sysreq
  18. agree with @Tom W. I have often used them and nice to have it all built in the app. https://www.mtextur.com/materials/41920?color=Weiss&locale=de-CH&subtype=&type=Beton+%26+Zement
  19. It depends on what version you are using. In newer versions it should be possible to use image effects and remove saturation https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm?#t=VW2021_Guide%2FRendering1%2FImage_effects.htm&rhsearch=image effects&rhhlterm=image effects&rhsyns=
  20. I usually limit to wall style, wallstyle starting with interior*, wallstyle starting with exterior*,
  21. Two stacked viewports? background is horizontal section viewport with open-gl rendering, no color front regular top/plan viewport to get door openings and wall detail
  22. Hi Worksheets are powerful in VW. This should get you started https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm?#t=VW2021_Guide%2FRecordsSchedules%2FCreating_reports.htm&rhsearch=Creating reports&rhhlterm=Creating reports&rhsyns=
  23. I tried to open your file and got this message: THIS FILE WAS CREATED WITH AN ILLEGAL COPY OF VECTORWORKS You have just opened a Vectorworks file that was created using an illegal copy of Vectorworks. You may have obtained this from someone at your company, a partner company, a vendor, or from an unknown source such as an Internet download.
  24. Hi Jonathan We have two of them with Vega 64 3,0 ghz 10 and 3.2 ghz 8 and they work well for VW and TM. We bought later the iMac Mid2020 3,8 Ghz i7 AMD Radeon Pro 5700 XT 16 GB for roughly half the price of the iMac pro. I believe they are faster but in day to day work but I haven't done any systematic comparison.
