  1. As a lower cost option, there's a version that uses a phone or tablet ( iOS & Android) as the hardware. I've just started trying it out, but it looks promising: https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/stream-deck-mobile
  2. I had another random crash, and occasional OpenGL surfaces showing as white with no lines at edges, but unable to reproduce the errors, so I'm just plugging away for now.
  3. You might be able to accomplish what you're after by putting the different texture beds on different layers (not classes), and using "Use Site Modifiers on:" -> "Visible Layers Only" option in Site Model Settings EDIT: @Tamsin Slatter beat me to it.
  4. @JuanP Thanks. I'll let you know if any problems persist.
  5. VW crashed (quit without warning) while I was adjusting a RW camera. After I restarted, I tried to open the Visualization Palette and got an error message (screenshot is attached). I have a VW Architect license, so the message is wrong. Then I quit & restarted, and VW allowed me to open the Visualization Palette. However, when I tried to insert a RW Camera, I got the error message in the second screenshot. Then I quit & restarted and VW allowed me to insert a RW Camera. That's where I am right now, but I assume something else will go wrong soon. Any suggestions to avert disaster? My system info is in the signature below. Thanks
  6. I'm having the same problem. No progress bar. I believe (but am not certain) that the progress bar disappeared after upgrading from 2019 to 2020. VW Architect 2020 | SP3 (USA) Mac OS 10.15.3 iMac 27", 2019 | 3.7 GHz 6-core i5 | 40GB RAM | Radeon Pro 580X 8GB
  7. I agree. You might have better luck getting this changed (eventually) by posting it as a wishlist request: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/forum/19-wishlist-feature-and-content-requests/
  8. @Mark Mullany Thanks.
  9. Could you use data tags? You can tag all of the walls at once, though I think you'd need to manually check that they are on the correct side of the wall. Missing one could be a costly mistake.
  10. @Tamsin Slatter As a US customer, thanks for posting the link to the webinar. I thought I should let you know that the link takes me to the presentation in a VW University page, but the course itself does not show up in the VWU course list. I'll let you decide if this is a feature or a bug.
  11. I've been using this setup for non-VW assistance for family members. It allows you to control the remote Mac if given authorization. System settings need to be set up correctly first or it won't work and you won't even get an error message explaining why. Here's some guidance. https://support.apple.com/guide/messages/screen-sharing-icht11883/mac https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/turn-screen-sharing-on-or-off-mh11848/mac
  12. I had a similar situation yesterday. Opening a file with OpenGL, and all surfaces were gone. This happened after installing 2020 SP3 as well as a demo of InteriorCad XS, so either/neither could have been a cause. My fix was to: 1. Select all classes in Navigation palette in list mode (not in hierarchical mode - because the next step won't work otherwise) 2. Right click on the selected classes and select "Edit..." 3. Select the "Textures" option in the Edit Class(es) window, but don't change anything 4. Click "OK" I have no idea why this worked or if it is repeatable. I don't even remember why I tried it.
  13. Try: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FShapes2%2FExtrude_along_path.htm I didn't check to see if your specific issue is covered.
  14. I've never really understood this either, but I think it becomes a little more official if you submit a bug report: https://www.vectorworks.net/support/bugsubmit Similarly, I think the only way for a feature request to have a chance of being noticed is if it is posted to the appropriate forum section: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/forum/19-wishlist-feature-and-content-requests/&do=add If someone has better info, please chime in.
