  1. Not stickers, but this might help: https://www.vectorworks.net/community/partner-community/partner-products/product/vw-keyboard http://www.coronal.net/freebies.html
  2. @Tom Klaber I already posted a wishlist item that you can add your vote to:
  3. 7 de Enero LA VISPERA v2020.dwg
  4. Looks like it's related to "sketch" settings: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FRendering1%2FSketch_rendering.htm Check your settings in View Menu -> Rendering -> Sketch
  5. It sounds like your problem might be overlapping site modifiers. My understanding is that you can not overlap any site modifiers, including existing vs proposed site modifiers. You can try adjusting the existing site model without using site modifiers (e.g. change the underlying points or contours before generating the model), and only use site modifiers for the proposed changes. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/SiteModel2/Correcting_site_modifier_conflicts.htm It would be nice if the site modifiers for the existing and proposed model should be treated independently and be allowed to cross. I added a wishlist item - please follow the link and vote it up (triangle at the top left corner).
  6. Site modifier conflicts should treat existing and proposed modifiers separately. My typical workflow is to adjust the existing site model as needed to reflect existing conditions (survey data typically needs adjustment), and only then applying proposed site modifiers. This means that there are often conflicts between site modifiers needed to correct the existing conditions, and site modifiers needed for the proposed design.
  7. I don't know if the command was added before or after 2016, but if you found it in the architect workspace I'm guessing it should work. If you're having trouble editing the workspace, these might help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SC_HQqmMzOw https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2016/eng/index.htm#t=VW2016_Guide%2FWorkspaceEditor%2FCreating_or_Editing_Workspaces.htm
  8. @ilimatiare You should be able to find it (and all other menu options) in the workspace editor "Menus"->"All Menus". I believe the default location in VW Architect 2020 is the AEC menu.
  9. You should be able to accomplish what your looking for by creating a sheet layer viewport, duplicating it, and then changing the class overrides for the walls (or wall component) for each viewport to show a different option. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FViewports2%2FChanging_the_class_properties_of_sheet_layer_or_design_layer.htm https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FStructure%2FThe_Organization_dialog_box.htm
  10. Not as far as I know. However, you can modify the Basic tools palette, or make a new one with the tools you want to see, using the Workspace Editor: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FStart%2FCustomizing_workspaces.htm https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FStart%2FModifying_tool_palettes_and_tool_sets.htm
  11. @sarnoldesign You can try the "pilaster" or "create wall projection" tools: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FWalls_edit%2FCreating_columns_and_pilasters.htm https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FWalls%2FCreating_wall_projections.htm I haven't used either of them much, but they might do what you need to do. I've found the wall projection tool difficult to edit, so have just deleted & rebuilt if I needed to make changes.
  12. I had played around a bit with this plugin that might do what you want: https://www.smartpaste.co.uk/product/class-visibility-toolset/ They are a VW "partner": https://www.vectorworks.net/community/partner-community/partner-products/product/smartpaste The website is down right now. I don't know if it's short term or long term. You might try later.
  13. @Jim Smith The request is to be able to set the default insertion mode. VW defaults to aligning to center after each wall change, requiring me to remember to change the insertion side every time. I'd like to be able to change this default behavior (to left side of wall core in my case) and then select other alignments on as needed basis.
  14. Absolutely. It's just that VW could revert to 2019 with minimal effort, as the icons already exist, so it seems like a more realistic ask.
  15. I didn't see a previous request in the Wishlist forum, so I added one. You can add your vote (triangle at the top left of the web page) at:
