  1. 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)?


  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. katie,

    i got your info on the VW11 FAQ you posted on the technical support.

    "Do I need to set the scale in the design layer or should I always use 1:1 and scale the model in the viewport?

    While you can always change the scale of your model in the viewport, we still recommend that you set the scale of your design layer to the most likely printed scale. This will ensure that VectorWorks page based objects like text, dimensions, image fills, and some hatches will display correctly."

    2. so the best way is still to reference titleblocks in design layers and viewport it onto the sheet layer?


  5. 1. I realized katie mentioned it's still better to draw in various scales in design layers and "viewported" at the same scale that correspond to the design layers. in that case i don't see the use of being able to change scales of the viewports, and isn't the purpose of annotation viewports so that scales can be change without affecting (drastically) text/dimension?

    2. How can I reference titleblock onto sheet layer?


  6. IS THERE ANYWAY TO NOT HAVE DIMENSION BE AUTOMATICALLY PUT IN ITS DEFAULT CLASS "DIMENSION"? I NEED TO CREATE TWO DIFFERENT SETS OF DIMENSIONS, AND HAVE ONE OF THEM TURNED OFF WHILE WORKING ON THE OTHER.
