  1. I know what you are talking about and I have already done it and it works only when you choose a standard line thickness. If you choose a line thickness from the set thickness menu it won't work. give it a try. I am thinking it is a bug.
  2. I am trying to set my dimension class to have line thinkness of 3mil and for some reason it wont' take anything but the standard thicknesses. so if i pick 5mils it is ok but 3 wont' work. unless I go and pick my dimension one by one and fix them. I am on VW08 with SP3. Is anyone else having this problem and how can I fix it please.
  3. I am trying to add the layer options menu with the small plus sign to my right mouse click and it won't do it, everytime I try it adds all my options rather than giving me the option of a sub menu like the class options. Does anyone know how to fix this or is it a VW2008. I am on VW2008 SP2.2. Rafa

    Linking Files

    in plain english please jonathan?
  5. Is there a way of linking a file to another one like I am doing this job now where I am doing half of the plans and someone else in our office doing the other half, so I need to link both files so when I make a change on my copy the other one changes accordingly? is this possible? I am working on VW 12.5.1 on a PC.

    Thank you for your reply Katie, but I am afraid I can't find the Layer Overlay option anywhere? I tried to add it to my workspace but it is not in my menue. Can you shed more light on this please.
  8. I finally managed to get it to work, thanks for all your help guys.

    Layer Opacity

    Thanks Ray, I have been told by someone else too that it is just for MAC. but I just couldn't belive it. This is unbelievable.
  12. Sorry about that it is actually an ozcad ad-on, it is called select similar but looks like the magic wand in Photoshop CS. I have been to the supplier support and still waiting to hear from them.
  13. I am having trouble creating a PDf book, it would be really nice if we can click on our batch print and create a PDF book rather than seperate pages and then I have to go into adobe to make the book, when you have a big project or even a small one like 15 - 20 pages it is time consuming.
  14. Has anyone used the layer Opacity yet? in VW12 or 12.5 or 12.5.1? I can't seem to find it on my layer window options. I am on a PC machine, any suggestions???
  15. It is not a special ad-on, it is a regular VW ad-on, and I have posted my problem to our supplier, still no reply yet.
