  1. We run VW 10 on PC's & currently just print at A3 but are exploring the options for going larger to A1. We don't have an A1 plotter (all suggestions welcome) so will be sending out to a reprographics company. We have been told that it is much cheaper if we can create plotfiles (as opposed to dwg's). (We are based in the UK where Vectorworks is not as popular as Autocad or Microstation). Are plotfiles possible from VW10 (or 11 or 12)?? & if so, how do we go about creating them? Thanks for your help.
  2. How do I make a PDF file from my PC - using V10. I am doing a report in Quark & don't have Illustrator - do I need to go & buy this? We have tried a free download called Desk PDF but this is no better than exporting as an EPS into Photoshop & then into Quark (this actually works better). We only have the free Acrobat Reader 5.1 & Adobe Reader 7.0 installed too. Thanks!
  3. Katie, Our query was posted in this section in error - we cannot move it as only an admin person can do this...perhaps you can do it. When you click the post message button it does not offer options as to which section you have want to post your query in. If you have done a search & just happen to be in the wrong section when you post your message you automatically get put into this section. Sorry, but easily done!

  5. How do you regroup into a hybrid object again? I thought that once a hybrid object was ungrouped that it was not possible to regroup?
  6. Hi! I am a new VW user (V10 Architect) & used to Microstation. Is there any way of having more than 1 view open on the screen at the same time to help when drawing elevations?
  7. I am trying to modify a plug-in window from the Vectorworks Resource Files. I want to change the profile of the jamb detail/profile to something much more complex than a rectangle. How do I do this & retain it's 3D capability. Every time I try to do it, it converts to a 2D symbol. This doesn't seem to be covered in the Vectorworks V10 manual. Help!
