  1. @Luis M Ruiz Looking forward to seeing the webinar regarding producing drawings from a model. You'll get bonus points if there's at least some written documentation, such as a "cheat sheet", for future reference. BTW, I heard promising info regarding updates to training materials and the VW University interface at yesterday's virtual open house. Thanks.
  2. @Luis M Ruiz Any chance this will happen? I think this is the biggest hole in the training & documentation for an architect's workflow.
  3. Are Classes visible in View->Class Options->Show/Snap/Modify Others?
  4. Not sure why your screenshot is pointing to Show/Snap/Modify Others. If you want to gray others, it should be "Gray Others" or Gray/Snap Others". Do you have the other layers you want to see in grey mode set to visible? Layers that have visibility turned off, stay off in grey mode. "Gray Others - Displays the active class/layer normally and all other classes/layers are grayed (except for those set to invisible)" per https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/index.htm#t=VW2021_Guide%2FBasic2%2FSetting_global_visibility_with_class_and_design_layer_options.htm BTW, I think (others can correct me) that "Show/Snap/Modify Others" is usually not advisable for Layers, but is frequently used for Classes.
  5. I believe site modifiers for existing & proposed can't cross. I posted a Wishlist item here: Has this been fixed in 2021? If not, please follow the link & vote.
  6. This is beyond my pay grade, though I'm hoping to learn more if/when this thread gets feedback from someone with more experience & knowledge.
  7. Try this trick courtesy of @Tom W.. I haven't tried it, but if you decrease the spacing between the topos before ungrouping, you should get a higher level of detail:
  8. @JBowsh I didn't quite understand your question. If you're trying to back reference details, this might help:
  9. I think you can also duplicate the first viewport and then edit the layer and class visibilities in the new viewport.
  10. This isn't an answer, other than this is a common request. Please vote at (triangle at top left):
  11. There is a problem regarding progress bars in general, as seen in the posts below. It would be nice if whoever at VW coordinates the Wishlist items ( @JuanP?) would consolidate these into a single action item & thread.
  12. If so, submit here: http://www.vectorworks.net/support/bugsubmit
  13. @Renato There are people working successfully with Stories and without Stories. It's a personal preference, but should also be influenced by the type of work you do. For my purposes (custom single family residences) not using them was the clear winner. If I was doing multi-story buildings I'm guessing I would have chosen otherwise. There are several other threads on this topic. I think this one is a good place to start and links to the others: And to get straight to the source of the No Stories workflow, head to:
  14. A few years ago I tried using Duet with a Mac (Mini without a keyboard/monitor), and gave up after too many inconsistent connections.
