  1. Try switching to a different Workspace (Tools > Workspaces) and then back again.
  2. That doesn't sound normal, but I can't see that you're doing anything wrong. I think you might need some help from Vectorworks on this one. I would give VW support a call. Or maybe @Tolu can comment? When you clear the metadata, you need to make sure everybody else has refreshed their file first for them to carry on using their existing working file.
  3. I would try reinstalling Vectorworks. I haven't experienced any issues like this with v2024 and Sonoma. But before reinstalling, you could try opening the Vectorworks 2024 Updater (inside the Vectorworks application folder) and clicking on Advanced, then Repair.
  4. @jmhanby are you able to post a screen recording?
  5. How would you want to see it work? Unlike Classes (which a self-organising based on the '-' divider) layers would need a new UI element that we can create and drop layers into it, manually grouping them.
  6. Layer Filters is probably the answer to this problem. Would be good to have somebody at VW comment on this and put it to rest if that's the case.
  7. For sure is the same wish as these: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/42924-design-layer-and-sheet-layer-hierarchy/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/56819-organising-grouping-sheet-and-design-layers/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/106611-grouping-of-layers-please/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/55984-separate-sheet-layers-and-design-layers-in-pull-down-menus/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/102316-nested-layers-wanted/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/87753-group-layerssheets-and-viewports/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/66960-group-layers-like-in-photoshop/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/58271-organisation-design-layers-saved-views-sheet-layers-viewports/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/16256-ability-to-group-layerssheet-layers-like-classes/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/60380-collapsable-sheet-and-layer-folders/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/43404-better-layer-orginization/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/96185-design-layer-groups/
  8. Same goes if you using other syncing services. Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive etc. If you were using any of those services you might find they have your files. Sorry to hear that.
  9. No, you need to either go into the symbol and edit separately or, as I generally do, convert the relevant symbols to groups, ungroup them. You can actually choose to import everything as 'exploded blocks' (DWG Import Options > Advanced > Blocks > Explode all blocks) when you import the DWG but I find this can result in loss of information such as drawing numbers.
  10. Yeah, okay, separate layer is a good solutionmostly, but, for instance, add some car parks with the Park Spaces Tool and they will be located at z=0.
  11. This is where I remember having an issue. 3D views of a site model with objects also at zero are not easy to navigate.
  12. I'm in the habit of using a station point or a physical element on or near the site that I know is not going to change. So therefore never ends up being a nice round number like this. Why am I in the habit of doing this? It doesn't really matter to the builder what coordinates I use to define the internal origin does it.
