  1. Unfortunately I find there is no coordinated and combined release of information on these valuable webinars, seminars and training. I find out about them ad hoc through emails from VW, or on Facebook or You tube or the pop up message center on VW. Whilst its nice to have regional focused training it would be a great improvement if there was a single central place where all this training was shown.
  2. Trying to see and find the tool box icons has reduced my productively down considerably.
  3. So far I have not noticed an improvement in speed. In fact my speed has dropped significantly as I am having to wast time trying to find these new icons! There is a long thread elsewhere criticising the new icons. So I would say 2020 is worse than 2019! I am considering a refund!
  4. Import the image rather than copy and paste
  5. I am surprised that the new icons where not released for user feedback before the update. I see no reason why the original icons had to be replaced. It was not on any wish list I have seen. I am disappointed that VW have not replied to this thread of upset loyal users and given any justification for the change. Maybe they work better with a black background and on apple macs.
  6. Thank you for your replies and feedback. As suggested I am going to start a fresh new file. Do I need to write in all the classes again or can I simply import the classes from the original template without importing any glitches or problems?
  7. We have a drawing / document which we use as a 'master project' template. When starting a new project rather than start with a new file we open this document and use it as the template to set up the new project. This year 2019 to 2020. The file contains our classes and sets out our standard layers and contains our drawing title templates. I belive it was started as a template on version 2018. At each vectorworks update we update / convert our 'master project' file rather than set up a fresh file. Is this the correct procedure? I am concerned that I may be setting up bugs or faults inherited from the original file.
  8. You are all most probably aware....You Tube has a good set of videos of 2020
  9. Thank you for your swift response. Tried Andy's suggestion first and it sorted it out. Thanks to you all.
  10. Viewport renderings appear 'see through' , as the attached pdf. This happens when exporting to pdf or publishing to pdf. Background renders are set to OpenGL Renderworks. The walls are set to solid in the class settings. Foreground render is set to sketch. I thought it could be file size all be it the pdf file size is only 10MB, so I have tried to reduce the file size by reducing DPI of sheets to 72 or turning off 3 D people and trees and cars but this has not worked. Any suggestions appreciated. 0458-WesthillPavillion-FeasibilityStudies-OPTION-7-test 2.pdf
  11. I have recently been searching for videos on Augmentative Reality and Virtual Reality. So far without much success. I am pretty sure some time ago there was a very good one with an architect designing a building and then taking you around the inside of the building. I have looked here on this site, on VSS and You Tube and have only found one video and this is on You Tube entitled Web View and Virtual Reality in Vectorworks 2017, but I am sure there was a better one. Any thoughts?
  12. Hi Justin. Thanks for the update. I will check it out.
  13. I got the vectorworks library back ...........but I had to reinstall Vectorworks......what a pain!
