  1. The biggest problem with concentrating on OpenGL is that it is being deprecated. Slowly. These developers are going to have to re-write a lot of code in a couple years. Vectorworks is already working on the problem to stay ahead of the game. So. You can either write for the latest OpenGL and see it wash away, or you can future-proof with code for the replacement render engines. I agree, though, that a good stop-gap would be to have a better export option to get textured models into these other renderers.
  2. I suggest making it a high priority. The TB Manager has only so much space, so now we have to arrow through pages to get to fields. Very inconvenient, and being able to winnow these multi-line fields down to single-line fields would be eminently helpful. And, of course, the TB Manager could use a GUI makeover. Srsly.
  3. Until 2017, one could get a multi-line field generated for titleblocks by appending # to its name. Deleting the # sign turned it back to a single-line field. Now though, my fields seem to be a mix, with most of my custom ones being multi-line (but not all of them!) and this prevents me from simply tabbing through to the next field. Frustrating. How do I turn these fields back to single-line fields? Anybody know? Help and scouring the forum has been no use thus far. Cris w/ no H
  4. Never used LPS Pro, but LW can email your stuff, too. C
  5. I think he means rotation in 3D space, Kevin. I agree this could be a bit more user-friendly, Echo, but you can rotate 3D symbols. The only catch is that they can't be hybrid symbols (with the rare exception of Lighting Instruments in Spotlight, which have special controls for that). If you go into an orthagonal view - front, top, side, back, whatever - you should be able to use the simple Rotate commands and tools right out of the 2D workspace. Make sense? What you mention with hinges is what I did with a model of the new Jeep Truck, about six months ago. The hinges are all identical, but sit at varying orientations. Cris Dopher
  6. Wish I'd seen this topic in January. I have a whole library of wheelchair and ADA clearance symbols, including 3D wheelchair, w. or w/o occupant. I look foward to poking through the new library Justin.
  7. Scott, that is exactly what I've done at GPJ. And we count a lot of truss! Of course, I added other useful bits to my record. Things like truss color, purpose (set, lights, mothergrid, etc), position name (whatever that chunk of truss is going to be referred to, not necessarily a Lighting position), and booleans for pre-hung and sleeves/shrouds.
  8. I created empty symbol folders in a file I use to pull classes from. I can just import the folders I need, or all of them. Since they're empty, I don't pull in unwanted resources. Cris
  9. I just need the folder structure, not the content. How can I easily import that?
  10. I'm attaching a file showing my problem. Schedule of softgoods. It's the Length I need to round off. I'd like them to round up, but I'll settle for no fractions, at this point. DIMENSION ROUNDING TEST.vwx
  11. Still being frustrated by this. It might work in regular worksheet cells, but doesn't seem to work for database cells.
  12. DC, wouldn't the Section Line tool give you the A-------------------------A you're talking about?
  13. Odd. I don't have this problem you're describing. Whichever monitor I use the Dock on is where the main drawing window opens (and I can use the Dock from either monitor, of course.) . As long as I open from the same monitor, my palettes don't wander. Switching monitors means manual rearrangement, of course. I wonder if something is interfering, like using Spaces, Mac OS restore windows functionality, or something like that.
