  1. I'm working on a multi-family condo. I have unit plans 'multi dlvp'ed' onto each floor plan. What's the best way to generate door and window schedules? It seems that schedules can only reside in the file that contains the original PIO's (i.e. not in dlvp), is that accurate? Can someone point me to a tutorial about creating and manipulating schedules, if any exists. Thanks in advance! VW2009 SP4 OS X 10.5.7

    Broken Reference

    Every time I open a file, it will require me to "manually locate the broken reference" even though the reference files have not been moved. What would be the reason for this and can anything be done to rectify this? Thanks in advance for any suggestions! VW 2009 Architect MAC OS X 10.5.7

    Broken Reference

    I was hoping it may not be the server's problem. I guess no such luck. Files are never moved around and we have had that happened on almost every workstation, having to 're-link' broken references each time. Very annoying. Thanks IanH!

    Broken Reference

    IanH, I do save it after re-linking with all the references, and then after it has been closed for a while, it will happen again when I reopen it. All my references are "absolute" and all files reside in office server. Thanks for your help.
  5. I'm trying to export a file that has drawings composed of several "design layer viewports". Site Plan, Building Footprints and Unit Plans are all drawn in separate files and brought together in one file through design layer viewports. I can't seem to export the file as ONE dwg file. Each design layer viewport is simultaneously exported as separate dwg files. How can I export that file to contain ALL of the design layer viewports in one dwg file? Thanks! vw2009, OS X 10.5.6

    WORKSHEET TUTORIALS

    Can someone direct me to where I can get some pointers to use the worksheet and its formulas for something as simple as counting number of symbols or viewports in a drawing. Thanks a bunch! VW 2009 Mac OX 10.5.6

    WINDOW TOOL

    Is there a way to draw corner window with the window tool? Vectorworks 2009
  8. Is there a way to rename "automatic classes" generated by plug-in objects and have the subsequent objects created use the renamed classes? e.g. When inserting a door, 'ceiling-main' and 'sills' are created. If I edit the names of these classes, the same ones will be generated again when I insert a second door. Thanks! VW 2009 Mac 10.5

    Toggling Class

    Is there a way to toggle class "invisible" after right-click on the object to "activate class or force select"? Thank you for any input!

    CLASSES

    Katie or any VW gurus! I remembered way back in VW 10, there was a way to set it so that doors and windows when inserted, are in a designated class or class 'none', and not have their automatic classes "Sill", "Ceiling main" appear. How can I do this in VW 12.5? Thanks for your help!! Mac Os X 10.4.10 VW 12.5.2

    Print quality fuzzy in vw12.5

    Katie, I doubt it's the printheads, because i was plotting from 2 different stations with 2 different versions of vw in order to compare the quality of the plots.
  14. I have recently switched from vw11 to vw 12.5 I'm on OS 10.4.7 since the switch, the print quality is noticeably worse. lines are not as crisp, heavy lineweights appear fuzzy, patterns are not as fine. i tried both quartz imaging on and off, that doesn't solve the print quality. I plot to hp designjet800ps. Any advice? Thanks.
  15. I'm using VW12.5.1 on OS !0.4 On some of the files that I have been working on for a while, some lines of a specific lineweight will stop printing, while others are okay. Has anyone had this problem before? Any explanation as to why this happens and how to prevent it? The only solution I got if I need that lineweight, is to cut and paste into a brand new file.

    LINEWEIGHT WON'T PRINT

    Katie, The file has become progressively worse. Now "patterns" won't print and more lineweights aren't printing( with quartz off). However, everything prints fine when I cut and paste into a fresh new file ( even with quartz off). what's causing this "deterioration"?

    LINEWEIGHT WON'T PRINT

    Hi Katie, I have quartz imaging off. I have printed to both ricoh 1018 2027 laser The lines won't show up on pdf files either. The problem is corrected when i turn on quartz imaging. So i should have quartz imaging on at all times? I'm not quite sure what the function of "quartz imaging". Thanks!
  18. I know I can import color palatte so that it is consistent between files, but how can I do the same for dash style and hatches? if i cut and paste, the dash style will just take on the style of the file that it is pasted on. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  19. I'M NEW TO CREATING DOOR SCHEDULE AND HAVE COUPLE QUESTIONS THAT I CAN'T FIND THE ANSWER TO IN THE MANUAL: 1. MY "MARK" IS NOT IN ASCENDING ORDER BUT IN RANDOM ORDER. HOW DO I EDIT IT? ( SO IT WILL SHOW FROM DOOR 1 THROUGH DOOR 10 FOR EXAMPLE) 2. HOW CAN I UPDATE MY SCHEDULE AFTER I MADE CHANGES TO THE DOOR WITHOUT "CREATE SCHEDULE" ALL OVER AGAIN? THANKS! I'M ON VW 12.5 ON MAC 10.4.7
  20. My question is: When I have a group selected, I can't see its general (group) dimension in the obj info box. Have I switched something off? I tried group 2 rectangles together in a new file, and the obj info box has the group's size. I'm using VW 12.5 on MAC OS 10.4.7

    Door Classes

    I have just upgraded from v11 to v12.5. All my doors which were on custom layer A-Door has extra classes attached ( sills and ceiling-main). Is there a way to not have these default classes show up when inserting doors? Or is there a better way to manage these default classes(I use AIA standard of naming these classes)?

    file corrupted?

    I have had this happened on couple times with different files. The entire program would crash if I try to open an 'affected' file. I have tried rescuing some information from other files that referenced the said file but i lost all the annotation and layout. what can be the problem? both occasion they had been floor plans with site plan referenced into it.

    Moving Walls

    When I was using VW10, I used to be able to move a wall without it being disconnected from the others it is joined with. Is this a feature only in VW architect? I'm using VW11 without Architect now, and can't seem to find the toggle to lock the wall joints. thanks.

    Moving Walls

    archoncad, i don't have that button. all i have are "interactive scaling", "wall insertion", "rectangular selection" and "lasso selection".
