    Framing take-off

    @Luka Stefanovic Is the Structural Member tool the recommended choice in general, or are there still some uses for the Framing Member tool? Is one or the other a legacy tool?

  3. They're there to let you know that the reference maker isn't referencing anything. It changes to green to let you know once you have. Someone else will have to answer whether they can be turned off or not. They don't print.

    Slabs and Plinths

    Also look at the settings of your Wall Component Settings and Slab Edge Offsets. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FFloors_slabs%2FSetting_edge_offsets.htm https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FWalls%2FCreating_wall_components.htm
  5. Or labeled as "legacy" similar to what they did for the old markers in 2021 (screenshot from VW 2021 workspace editor): I included a general request in items 10 & 11 in this post:
  6. Where & how do you make an "enhancement request" (and shouldn't VW have a formal mechanism of using the forum posts as such)? I am aware of these links at the footer of all the forum pages, but only the Wishlist (which this post is in) seems appropriate: Tech Support Request: http://www.vectorworks.net/support/help Wishlist: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/forum/19-wishlist-feature-and-content-requests/ Bug Submit: http://www.vectorworks.net/support/bugsubmit
  7. Changing the top tread dimension might be what you're looking for:

  9. I agree with the problems with the property line tool. For an alternate way of creating a property line, see:

    Center Tool

    I missed that. Ignore my previous comment. I'm not sure I see the benefit of inserting the sink into the wall. I would center the sink on the wall by pulling it away from the wall, turn off the "Wall Insertion" option for the symbol, and place at the center point using the smart points. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FSymbols%2FThe_Symbol_Insertion_tool.htm

    Center Tool

    VW needs to know what you want to center the object on.
  12. Try using the "Custom Tools/Attributes" command, and check the Tool and Class boxes while the Callout tool and ANNO class are selected. I believe the downside is that you lose the option of using key commands for the tool, and have to double-click in the script palette to activate.

    Center Tool

    "right-click on the object to serve as the alignment reference. The alignment reference is locked into place, and the other selected objects are aligned relative to it. Select Align/Distribute from the context menu. The most common align and distribute commands display on a flyout context menu. Select the desired command, or select Align/Distribute to open the Align/Distribute Objects dialog box." https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FObjects_edit1%2FAligning_and_distributing_objects.htm
  14. I haven't tested this, but you could try using the Extract Surface tool on the bottom of the wall, and then use the resulting object as a Site Modifier by changing its class to Site-DTM-Modifier. There's probably a better way of generating a 3d object to turn into a site modifier, but that was my first thought. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FShapes3%2FExtracting_geometry.htm https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FSiteModel1%2FSite_model_modification_overview.htm
