  1. Anybody from Vectorworks have any advice?
  2. Am I missing something? How do I get a custom rail profile to sit on top of the post instead of going through the post? I even set the insertion point at the bottom of the profile. The stock profiles sit on top. Also, is there a way to make the top of the post be above the rail (IE: a block top post)? Edit: I also noticed the dialogue box dimension settings don't match the actual model. Distance to floor is correct but "distance to top rail is not. Neither is the post height.
  3. Yeah, that's pretty much it. That's why I'd like to see the thumbnail/list view to have the option to view the resources you work with most. If I select "all resources" I have to scroll through tons of line types and text styles. At least with the old browser you could minimize those resources and sort of hide them from view. Anyway, thanks everybody.
  4. Thanks Tom, I do create folders. The problem is, some miscellaneous items don't make it into a folder, and the ones that don't might be a different resources like text styles, textures and line types. If they were listed by type you could scroll though them in some type of order. Andy, thank you. Yes, you can sort by type in list view. So how is that not possible in thumbnail/list view? It just seems like another "improvement" with baggage that will linger. _C_, yeah, I'm looking for the old way it worked, but it worked. I like the new layout, I think there's a lot more room to work, but just fix the little things,
  5. Is there a way to remove this pink plane from showing up when I'm in 3D view?
  6. Two things I would like to see improved with the resource manager. If there is a way to do these things, could someone please let me know? 1) It would be better to be able to check off (add check boxes to the left of each resource)which resources you want to view instead of one resource or all of them. symbols/plug-ins, and textures are what I use most but from what I understand you can only view one at a time or you have to view all resources. 2) Is there a way to sort the resource manager list by type instead of alphabetical? Having all of the resources showing at once, they are all over the place because of the naming. Visually, it's very difficult to find what I'm looking for. Screenshot shows "all resources". There is no sense of order.
  7. When I change from top/plan to 3D I get this... And if THAT doesn't work? if NA doesn't want to fix it, give us a "more workarounds" button.
  8. Thanks for your time everyone. Zoomer, this is just going from tp/plan to Right Iso. No editing mode or anything. Sorry, I should have made that clear. Pat, I will try your suggestions if I can't get it to work, I just don't want to have to go through resetting everything just for one setting. Just wish simple things like this would just work instead of spending half of my day fixing someone else's work. And now NA is asking for $400 a year for upgrades. How about going back and fixing all of these workarounds before adding more to the mess. Does anyone else have a problem with the trim tool? It only works for me if I zoom in ridiculously close otherwise the line, circle or whatever gets deleted.
  9. If I go from top/plan to 3D view I still have to manually change the setting from wireframe to Open GL. Is there yet another loophole to get this setting to work right? What am I missing? The last few versions have not worked for me so I 'm wondering, has anyone experienced this?
  10. Is it possible to rename some tools or options based on the region? Similar to versions for different languages. The stair tool has terminology that is not region specific either, ie: the "run" of a stair in the U.S. is known as the "going" in many places. (sorry to use the stair tool as an example, sore subject) Just a thought
  11. Thanks guys, I appreciate your time.
  12. Can anyone tell me how to turn off the axis lines in 3D? Sometimes I get the pink plane as well. This is on my Windows machine. Thank you
  13. Screen Plane. I'm sure some people use both or all of them. Again, depends on how you use the software. I hope they are able to fix your issue. I agree it's frustrating. Many times I find "screen align" has changed to "layer plane" on its own. It's annoying when you continue to draw and find out you've been drawing on the wrong plane, and then have to go back and find all of the objects that were drawn on the layer plane.
  14. I agree with the inconsistency of the tool but I don't think screen aligned should be eliminated. I do all of my stair drawings in 2D due to the stair tool being so useless, so just because some people don't use certain features doesn't mean they should be eliminated. Not everyone uses the software the same. Hey, I don't use the custom cabinet tool, maybe they should get rid of it...
