  1. I've turned off the grids and no luck. It seems to be more of a pattern in my background rather than a grid. The pattern does not adjust when I zoom in or out. Any other thoughts?
  2. I recently switched over Vectorworks to my laptop and now I have to readjust my settings. One I can't seem to remember how to fix is how do I turn off the fine gray grid on my background that I see when I have it set to white background. It makes it look like I have a gray mesh across my screen and it makes things very difficult to see. Thanks, Matt
  3. sorry...i'm running a Mac OS X 10.3.9. I'm a PC guy so I can't find my way around the mac as well as i should be able to. There should be a folder to copy and paste my fonts into but I can't find it.
  4. I recently had to reinstall vectorworks on my computer and my firm uses a custom font. Does anybody know how to, or where to copy the new font so that it shows up in vectorworks?

  6. Does anybody know how to create windows between floors. I'm modeling a house and have the first and second floor set up on different layers that are linked along with the roof. I need to place a window in the stair well the extends through both floors. Is there an easy way to do that? I am able to 'fudge' it by placing a window in both floors and adjusting the styles but there has to be a better way to do it.
  7. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what is the best way to create complex roofs. The roof I am trying to model is too complex for the computer to create. Is there a way to do it in sections and join them together? The roof doesn't have any organic forms to it. It is composed of standard slopes and valleys but with multiple sections to the house and different eave heights. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. If you have the door selected, you should be able to grab the door at the door jamb (within the wall) with the resizing arrow (the double arrow). You should then be able to enter a precise distance in the length box (L) next to the X & Y coordinates at the top. Make sure you grab the "door symbol" by the jamb and not the actual door or else it will usually remove the door from the wall.
  9. Does anybody know how to create an arched dormer? I've just started to work in 3D and have picked up most of it but my company uses a lot of arched dormers in our design and I don't have it as an option.
