  1. http://blog.vectorworks.net/workflow-wednesday-3-guides-youll-wish-you-read-sooner To the VW powers that be: any chance we can get access to these guides in a downloadable format? PDFs would be great. And if there are other guides available, it would be nice to have access to those as well. If these are already publicly available , I'd appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

    I believe you can't have a story that is between other stories - that is, they have to stack. What I did in a similar situation is choose the story that was most applicable for the garage, and then adjust the Z-offset of the slab, and use AEC->Fit Walls to Objects... for the walls. When things change (and they always do), I have to go through and adjust.
  3. A quick search on 3dWarehouse yielded something close: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/u84cfae7b-3572-4a59-ab79-9fb3a64da896/BANQUETA-ERLAND-DUCH-BA-STOLL Not sure if this is close enough or if you could import it & then modify.
  4. Try Coincident Select: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FBasic1%2FCoincident_object_selection.htm Another option is to put site modifiers on a separate layer, but make sure "Use Site Modifiers on:" is configured properly in the Site Model Settings.
  5. ... and using the paint bucket mode to apply the attributes? https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FAttributes%2FTransferring_attributes.htm
  6. It seems to be hit or miss, as I've seen multiple posts where a VW employee directs someone to post the bug report. I've also seen some posts where the VW employee takes care of it directly. To be sure it's happening, I think you need to do it yourself. They also don't make it easy to find the bug report form. With a little google help: https://www.vectorworks.net/support/bugsubmit
  7. From memory, I think if you use the data tag on a revision cloud one of the default tag options is a revision triangle.
  8. It’s your working plane. It doesn’t print. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FBasic2%2FConcept_Understanding_the_working_plane.htm
  9. 2D symbol. As opposed to a 3D symbol or hybrid (2D/3D) symbol. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FSymbols%2FSymbols.htm
  10. Thanks for the followup
  11. Could this be a User Origin very far away from the VW internal origin issue?
  12. @Jalkana Iff it helps at all, I think you should be able to select multiple viewports on a sheet layer and paint-bucket the attributes at the same time. I haven't checked that it works. I also haven't looked into selecting viewports on separate sheet layers at the same time. Maybe one of the Vectorscript wizards can come up with something.
  13. @Jalkana The eyedropper tool might be what you're looking for. You can use it to transfer attributes, including class visibilities and overrides, between viewports within the same document. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FAttributes%2FTransferring_attributes.htm Watch out for the "Pick Up Sets Defaults" checkbox. You probably want to leave this unchecked in most cases.
  14. On Mac you can also look in the help system files: Applications -> VW -> VWHelp -> HTML5 -> VW2020_Guide ->.... I found that location when I was looking for the icon for the GIS Toolset, which I never found. I migrated my workspace from 2019 to 2020, and it did not bring in the new icon for the GIS toolset. If anyone knows where to find (or a VW employee can upload) this icon it would be appreciated.
  15. I believe you can use the Eyedropper tool to pick up dimension standards from one VP and drop them on the others. Double-click on the tool to open the Eyedropper Preferences. You can save the settings for future use. Watch out for the "Pick Up Sets Default" checkbox. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FAttributes%2FTransferring_attributes.htm
