  1. Help!

    Anybody out there with an explanation why my walls would suddenly rotate out of square in plans? It had happened to random walls, rotating out of their places at varying degrees, when no one has touched the files?


  2. Hi,

    Has anyone ever encounter printing blank from a sheet layer or design layer? I would create viewport on a sheet layer but it would print blank if the whole drawing is uncropped. On design layer, I have the same problem when I try to print a portion of a large plan in design layer. Any insights as to why that is?

  3. 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!

  4. 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!


  5. Do you save the referencing file once the reference is fixed? Also, are you referencing relative or absolute and where and on what device is the reference file stored?

    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.


  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  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!

  9. 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!!

  10. 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.


  11. 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"?


  12. 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!


  13. 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.


  14. 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!
