  1. I second this request. That capability would be hugely helpful.
  2. The above sound good. Do you guys use the dormer tool or construct your own dormers from roof faces and "fit walls to roof"? When I used the dormer tool to make dormers they were hard to modify.
  3. Thanks, I'll try your techniques. They've got to be an improvement on how I'm doing it now!
  4. Why are my un-updated viewport boundaries very large and tall, the width of the page but about 5x the height of the page? I can't seem to resize them.
  5. Thanks, I made the gable in "create roof" and the hip in "roof faces". I guess I can fake it, but I thought maybe there was a "join command" that would connect the two types. Alternately, I redrew it all with one "create roof" command, and I"m now trying to move roof handle points to configure both the gable and hip shape out, but it's not easy.
  6. How do you join a hip roof face to a gable roof? I can't figure out how to get the hip to form a valley as it goes up the gable.
  7. Thank you!! I went into my wall preferences and got that straightened out. Now the viewport is displaying correctly.
  8. Thanks for the tip. The 3D preference was on medium; now I've got it set at low and it seems a little faster, but it may be my imagination.
  9. I've created a viewport of an elevation. In the Create Viewport window, I set it to render in hidden line. It displays in what looks like wireframe, but the object info palette shows it set to hidden line. I've tried updating the viewport, and I've tried resetting it in the Create Viewport window to hidden line, and I've tried resetting it in the object info palette. Could it be some other setting that's causing it to look like wireframe?
  10. I do have the tutorial CDs, and they are helpful, burt they don't answer all of my many questions.
  11. Hi, Jonathan, Can you tell me a little bit about how your online service works? Thanks, Ruth Ellen
  12. Hi, After years of hand drafting, I've recently begun drawing construction documents primarily in VW, but I'm struggling to draft efficiently and to produce elevations and sections. I'm wondering if anyone in my area would be willing to consult with me about VW. I live in Charlottesville, Virginia. If someone would be willing who doesn't live near me, I'd be willing to consider phone consultations. Thanks.
  13. Hi, I have a viewport set at hidden line in the object info palette and in the viewport organization menu, but it displays in hidden line even after I reset it. Any ideas?
  14. Thanks, I just purged the file and searched VW Help for a way to find artifacts and duplicates. Is there a trick for identifying them?
