    2021 Feature Maybe

    You sound like a good contender for joining the beta testing group.
  2. What does the Masonry Module option in the Window/Door PIO do?
  3. We need support for bi-folding sliding doors. There shouldn’t be any limit to the number of configurations (i.e. please don’t use a drop-down list of options, use a Custom Door Options graphical user interface instead perhaps). Examples of common bi-folding sliding door arrangements:

    Vectorworks Preferences, Revisited

    Doe maximum undos really have a significant effect on performance? I have it set to 100.

    Cor that's a long time to wait for pre-selection though

    Vectorworks Preferences, Revisited

    Excellent advice Neil, thanks. One little trick to have it both ways on this one is to check Allow option-click in-place duplication, which allows you to duplicate an object in place—even with Offset duplications checked—by holding down the option key down when clicking an object. This way you have both options available without too much thought. I'm still trying to get used to this myself but it's an option.

    Oh that sounds great, well done.

    All videos were there previously I think. This is just a much better web design.
  10. Any thoughts on the best notes app for iPad? We're looking into settling on a particular app for taking notes at meetings etc., maybe sketches. Three that stand out to me are Noteshelf 2, Notability and Goodnotes. They can all convert writing to text. Is there anything we should be looking at with more of an architectural or Vectorworks bias?

    Bread and butter.

    Best notes app for iPad?

    Hi Andrew, we went with Noteshelf 2. Does everything we want and has a very responsive developer.
  13. Still need 18 votes to even catch up with the the top request of "no new features" 🤣

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    Agreed. I do think v2020 SP0 is very different to v2019 SP0 but our entire office is also running on iMacs that are not even a year old.

    That's interesting. How can you tell?
  17. @iborisov I note you say this problem is peculiar to Fundamentals, but I'm seeing this same or similar problem in Designer. Should I submit a bug?
  18. @iborisov thanks for that, was just about to submit a bug report. Will this fix files that have been converted v2020 SP0 already or will it only fix files that are converted using v2020 SP1?
  19. Looks to me like your Callout has lost its connection to the database. Try clicking on the Database dropdown menu and choosing the correct database. I'd submit a bug for that too. That's going to be annoying if you have to do that for each Callout.

    I disagree with this sentiment. I waited until SP3 or SP4 to convert the office to v2019 but I've converted the office to v2020 SP0 on day one. There's no hard and fast rule. The reason for the difference is that the stability of each release of Vectorworks depends on many factors, including the invasiveness of Apple's (or Microsoft's) own OS updates, how well beta testing goes, Vectorwork's priorities, etc. Some of it can be out of Vectorworks' hands (like the OS provider dropping an invasive upgrade) but after the release of v2019 I think Vectorworks balanced the scales a bit by putting more focus on making sure v2020 is stable. It's always a balancing act between stability, performance and capability. Personally I also made a decision to beta test Vectorworks 2020 on the pre-release version of macOS Catalina in a production environment because I wanted to help avoid what happened with the release of v2019 where we had to wait until a later service pack before it was ready to roll on Apple's latest OS. P.S. I would note that there are some small but noticeable speed issues using both v2019 and v2020 in macOS Catalina; I'm told Vectorworks are in contact with Apple working on this so hopefully it will be resolved by the time Catalina is released. Hasn't particularly slowed me down on the machine I'm using.

    Put it this way, I converted a couple of important projects during beta testing and I have the whole office running SP0 today with all current projects converted to 2020. There'll be some glitches that I haven't come across of course but I've been hitting deadlines without 2020 ever getting in the way. P.S. on top of that I'm running macOS 10.15 beta

    Our experience on macOS 10.14 is good so far. I'm also running v2020 on macOS 10.15 beta. Stability is good but there are a interface speed issues to deal with (in both v2019 and v2020) before macOS 10.15 is released.
