    Reference markers

    Thanks! But I need to create a few unique tags that I didn't find in the Resources, please advise if you know of a way to accomplish that. Thanks
  2. How can I create Reference Marker/ Drawing Labels. Please help
  3. We are using workgroup referencing on a project, but since we started using it we noticed that the files that are being referenced by other drawings are coming up as read only when they are not open in any other location. Is there a way to fix this? Also if a file is open by one person & someone else wants to open the file, is there a way for vectorworks to notify exactly where the file is opened over a network as oppesed to just saying that the file is currently open....open as read only? Please help

    patterns

    is it possible to create patterns or hatches from drawing objects?
  6. Jan15 You have some serious issues, with comparing programs, all the stuff you said (advice) I allready know. So thanks for not helping. Vector Works is great. It's the Porsche of all Cad Programs.
  7. George It's not about caring for it, I don't care what program I use as long as I get the job done. And actually there are a lot of jobs for autocad users, way more than for vectorworks users so that's not the question. I still use AutoCad when needed, & Revit, & Rhino...etc. And from my experience with all these programs they all have limitations & strong points. Jan15, just made nosense whe he/she knocked Autocad when the question wasn't about autocad.
  8. Jan15 If you used Autocad the right way then your 10 years would have been more pleasing. Using a program for a long time the wrong way might lead you to think that it's not good. for example do you like drawing in vector works where all the line are the same color, leading to people drawing inthe wrong class and a lot of thime the wrong layer causing headaches when printing views. I autocad that's not a problem. because you draw in color but you have full control of you printing simply by setting plot styles & layer plotting options.... Anyway when Vectorworks users keep referencing Autocad everytime they speak there must be a reason. I am here to learn not to Bicker about which program is better (Potato-Potaato) I also used Autocad for 10 years. Thanks for your help
  9. I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASS & LAYERS, I WAS WONDERING IF LAYERS COULDL BE EXPORTED. AND WHAT'S UP WITH THE AUTOCAD COMMENT. AUTOCAD IS STILL THE BEST CAD PROGRAM AVAILABLE.
  10. Can I copy & paste an object from one drawing to another with the pasted object transfering the layer info? Also is there any way to import layers & saved views from one file to the next. Thanks in advance Cami
  11. I did a drawing in vectorworks where I gave the different classes different colors to facilitate my drawing, Allowing me to know which class is which while I draw. Also I have a few color fils etc. But when it came to printing I realized that the drawing printed in color not black & white. Is there anyway where I can have my drawing classes have color so that I can distinguise between them while drawing but have them print in B&W & keeping all my fills in color or grey. P.S. I already tried changing the drawing to B&W but I lost my color fills. PLease help Cami Thanks
