    Records that work as a symbol

    Please don't change how it works now. You can change bulk symbols by selecting them and edit teh info in the OIP or by listing them in a spreadsheet and change them there.

    Any Drawbacks to VW 2019?

    I don't know about these two. Just major problems in displaying 2D plans: - Objects not showing, just selection handles visible - Objects showing on a different location, Selection handles seem to be in teh right place - Showing objects that are actually on invisible layers - Editing a group still seeing objects outside the group even though "show other objects while.." is switched off. - Plans redrawing not showing the whole plan. Quit VW and then open VW and the file again seems to be the only cure.

    Sorry, the Intel UHD Graphics 630 graphics card is not up for the task.

    Backwards Compatibility

    In other words, you need a MC7 or, in my experience, VW 8 (not 2008) running as steppingstone between MCD files and current VW versions. This means running an old Mac with OS9 in a classic environment. An old G3, 1st generation iMac for instance or a G4 (blue front) will do.

    Problem with pen size tool

    There is a build 461124 maybe it helps? https://www.vectorworks.net/downloads/ServicePack?major=2018&servicepack=5

    Screen Plane Lock - Please

    You can add them to the Vectorworks menu using the workspace editor. (dragging them from left to right). .vsm file are menu items and .vst are tools.

    Screen Plane Lock - Please

    Hi Onyhus, We ran into the same problem and found no standard solution for it. As a workaround we made a menu command that runs through your document and puts everything on ScreenPlane. The Set to Layerplane command was just a small change so we made that, too. Set_to_Screenplane.zip Kind regards, Gerard

    PDF Export - Scale oddities with positioning?

    Again a VW 2018 dialog: A similar dialog opens when you hit the Options button.

    PDF Export - Scale oddities with positioning?

    The export resolution is too low. Increase its setting. Shown here is the VW 2018 dialog:

    Clever workaround!

    Hinge-like 3D 'Rotate along line' function?

    Use my "Set WorkingPlane By Vector" Plug-in which sets a working plane perpendicular to the vector in its name.

    Hinge-like 3D 'Rotate along line' function?

    For now there isn't. You need a working plane perpendicular to your hinge-line. Vectorworks 2018ScreenSnapz004.mov

    In Vectorscript we recreate the polygon/polyline as changing the vertices took way to long.

    VW2019 Fundamentals - Tools Taken Away

    BIM is used in a small minority (number) of projects, (which is not the same as volume). Walls are easily setup for Dutch standard. By keeping portions of Walls lying about on separate layers, or copying them from older projects you can bypass to some extend the fact they can not be saved in styles. Replacing one style for another is a bit cumbersome, but for an architect on a budget apparently something they can overcome. And finally: Be very careful judging the advise I give to my clients on a forum like this, hiding under an abbreviation. What my clients happily use may not be exactly what I advise them to buy. But if they insist on working in Fundamentals, yes, I might advise them not to upgrade. Over and out.
