  1. I generally use the framing member tool, with the "beam" setting for non-sloped beams and the column tool for posts. With these two tools you get the hybrid 2D/3D and the ease of adjustment throught the obj info window. If you need to have rectangular columns (non-square) you could make simple extrudes.
  2. If anything they should email all license holders and let them know of the issue. We just experienced a total file loss due to this bug, if we had know we could have informed everyone not to minimize, etc.
  3. That doesn't seem to work for the sidelight or the transom. It does work for the int./ext. panels though. Am I doing something else wrong?
  4. I am actually not having trouble with line thickness, what I want to do is have the component wrap around as part of the wall cap.
  5. Is there any way to give a wall cap a thickness to match the components in the wall? I'm working on some pilaster type walls that extend out from the building with a plaster finish wrapping around them. It would be nice to see the line of the plaster wrap around in plan view.
  6. Any update on the fix for this bug? It would be nice to at least set the transom glazing to clear.
  7. We are developing a CAD standard at our firm and would like to set up our office template such that when a project is started and one runs the 'create standard viewports' command the classes would be created with our preferred colors, weights, fills, etc. It seems that Vectorworks pulls this information from the .sta (standards) files such as the AIA layer list. Is there a way to make a custom version that can be referenced for our own preferences? Or is there another way to make this possible?
  8. I've noticed the keynote misbehavior is more serious when working over a network than on one's own computer. Still experiencing problems but the beach ball doesn't spin quite so lone...
  9. I have submitted a file to bugsubmit. I will post any information I receive.
  10. I am experiencing the same problems with keynotes. Very frustrating. Has someone submitted a bug report and sample file? If not I can.
  11. Maybe a more general look at the NCS ids is in order as the note symbol key is also not consistant.
  12. Our office tries to follow the National Cad Standard (NCS) for our production work. Unfortunately, several of the notation tools do not offer the NCS recommended symbols. For example the window type indicator is a diamond in the NCS but the Vkwks ID tool does not allow for it. Also, the NCS keynote indicator is a regular hexagon, but the Vkwks keynote tool does not allow for it.

    Door Glazing

    The "special classes" settings are actually located under SETTINGS on the VIEW tab, not the PARTS tab as noted above.

    Door Glazing

    How do I get door glazing to be clear? I don't see an obvious class to change in the door settings.
  15. Thanks, I guess I'll just have to be patient...
  16. Anyone know how to eliminate the vertical lines in the stringer at each riser? Also, this is supposedly a "concrete" stair, but it looks exactly like the framed stair. What is this option supposed to produce?
  17. Here's the photo. The object I'm guessing is to get the white lines to match the width of the wall lines thus hiding them. I don't know where the white lines get there properties from though. Any suggestions?
  18. When I turn off "plan detail" for windows and doors the wall lines are showing through the trim. Is there some class or lineweight setting I need to adjust to make this look right? Currently my wall/door classes are set to the same width as the walls.
  19. Could be a bug in 12.0 try upgrading to 12.0.1 and see if it fixes it.
  20. I have added plug-ins and keystrokes with no problems. Are you sure you doing it right? The manual has a pretty good description of the steps involved if you need help.

    splay wall

    I am also experiencing the same problem with the splayed wall. We are running 12.0.1 and it doesn't seem to help.
  22. Is there a way to rotate callouts without the text staying horizontal?
  23. Put a 0 in front of single digit numbers.
  24. Engineer is complaining that: "When we copy & paste line work from your dwg to our dwg it copies fine, but when we copy Blocks from your dwg to ours they don't copy. We have to explode them down to line work." Is there anything I can do to help him out?
