  1. I make my own based on a custom Workspace. You can find the icons in this thread: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/62683-streamdeck-integration/ I'm attaching a VW2023 file that I use as a base, including the 2022 Architect-BIM Workspace to use as a starting point, though I am not sure it is accurate. Most of the icons are on a hidden layer. Enjoy.

  2. Yes, that seems to be a more comprehensive thread.
  3. Additional related threads: https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/78167-better-typographical-control/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/103142-better-text-formatting/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/40158-text-tracking/
  4. Referencing other related threads (I'm guessing there are others): https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/103142-better-text-formatting/ https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/40158-text-tracking/ If anyone at VW is tracking this as a moderator, would it be possible to merge the posts and/or Wishlist votes? EDIT: it looks like @trashcan has already compiled a list of text related threads
  5. I suggest moving to this thread to consolidate the conversation & Wishlist votes (up arrow at the top left of the page):
  6. I can. What's nice is that you can set it either way.
  7. Have you made sure the version of the font uploaded to your VW cloud folder matches the one on your local machine?
  8. I highly recommend The decision whether or not to use VW Stories has implications regarding double height spaces.
  9. I agree. As far as I know, the best you can do right now is use the "All Menus" or "All Tools" flip downs and search alphabetically. You can start typing to jump down to the appropriate place. Of course, this only works if you know the first letter of the tool or command name.
  10. I understand completely, and I'm glad they are helpful to you. When I looked into using them it seemed like the additional coordination of Materials, Textures, etc wasn't worth the effort for me. One of the nice things about VW is that it is so flexible. My point regarding Materials is that they were 95% of the way there at release, and have not seemed to make it to the finish line over the last couple of years and allow 100% of elements to use Materials. In terms of development resource priorities, I think they would have been better spent wrapping up Materials before tweaking the color management system. Others likely have other priorities.
  11. I don't know about Windows, but on Mac: File->Open Recent->last 20 files. I have the home screen disabled. It seems like anything I click opens a browser window to a page I already have bookmarked. Per the linked thread, I would have left out ALL of the new 2023 features to get significant improvements and bug fixes in already existing features. For instance, I don't use Materials because it is not a fully functioning feature that can be applied to all building elements. AND I like what I'm seeing in the new features (e.g. new Benchmark Elevation). I understand that there is a business reason to offer new features, and that it also offers a real benefit to users. It's just that I would appreciate it if VW would prioritize using available development resources (including those derived from the new subscription model) to clean up existing features, without racing to release new features every cycle. I think this is in the long term interest of both VW and the users. I'm not trying to argue about VW. I know its benefits and I love working with it. I started with MiniCad and don't see myself ever switching to another program. That doesn't mean I can't provide productive criticism.
  12. These are not all "critical bugs" but are long standing deficiencies and quality control problems that affect the productivity of long term experienced customers, who are requesting they be addressed before new features are rolled out. Did we really need development resources put into a new VW23 home screen that arguably does nothing for productivity instead of addressing any of the items in the linked thread (or the items in @jeff prince's signature line)? https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/49017-my-wish-vw2021-to-have-no-new-features-please/ We can make them because we have frustrations with the software, and a long term perspective. You might notice that many of the participants of this thread are experienced VW customers who are very active in supporting other users throughout the forum. We have a vested interest in voicing criticism in an attempt to get VW management to understand their customers' long term needs, and focus on actual improvements rather than marketing new features that are not ready for primetime.
  13. As far as I remember, I have never received a quick confirmation with a ticket number that a support request was received. I received a same-day response for a support question submitted online on October 13th, with prompt subsequent followups. At other times it's been no response, or a response after a few days.
  14. @JuanP Just to confirm: you are recommending that Service Select customers should not use the VSS "Get Support" button at https://customers.vectorworks.net/support, and should email tech support directly at premiumtech@vectorworks.net? If so, I recommend that you change the Get Support link, and replace it with the email link you'd like us to use.
  15. @jblock If you can't even confirm receipt, which would take all of a few seconds to copy & paste the submitter's address into a form email, how can you possibly provide support? Please note that this thread refers to "Service Select" which is a service we're paying for, although I do think this should be common practice towards all customers. Having support requests go unacknowledged has a direct negative impact on your customers' productivity, as we don't know if we should continue moving forward with a workflow, wait for response, abandon hope and use a workaround, etc.
  16. I'd like to suggest again that you respond manually until the automated response system is fixed. Thanks.
  17. I would also appreciate a Benchmark coffee break that includes workflows for architectural projects that DON'T use Stories.
  18. You could also draw the frame (or individual pieces if you want to see the joint) as a polygon in elevation, then extrude 1/2", then fillet front edges.
  19. I'm using VW Architect 2023 on Mac and don't see them in Vectorworks.app -> (right click, Show package contents)->Resources->Vectorworks.VWR. SEE WARNING AT https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/58476-toolset-picture-files/&do=findComment&comment=292007
  20. Here is a Zip file with the 2023 Tool icons, as well as the Toolset icons posted by others above. See also https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/62683-streamdeck-integration/&do=findComment&comment=448015 VW 2023 Icons.zip
