  1. Hi Jim,

    I un-istalled and did a complete re-install.

    At the end of the installation it says that it failed and to check the installerlog.txt

    I then proceeded with the SP5 update. When I start the app I get the same XML message. Interestingly I have tried moving the program out of the VW2009 folder in applications to the applications folder and when I start the program I get a slightly different message (attached below).


  2. Apologies for the delay.

    Yes exactly right. The old HD can be mounted but 'READ only'. I'm running VW off that as I write this.

    I have clean installed on new drive - icon just bobs up and down in dock and then after several minutes fails.

    I have copied complete VW folder over to new applications and when I launch VW I get the attached message re XML Library.


  3. Hey. I'm wondering if there is a simple solution to this?

    I was using vw 2009 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard. After a few months of release I decided to take the plunge and try out 'Lion'. I've been using VW on it since Novemeber last year, no problems or issues in what we use VW for - it worked fine.

    Last week my HD crashed. I had a bootable backup so could carry on. Well everything was fine except for VW 2009. It obviously doesnt like being cloned. It said my XML library couldn't be located. VW suggested a clean install - but it still doesn't work.

    I'm wondering that because my original install was on Snow Leopard that could be the reason why I had no issue with using Lion as when I upgraded VW 2009 was already present. Obviously now when I do a fresh install its operating within Lion.

    My old bootable drive now in an enclosure allows me access to my files/apps. I can open and use VW 2009 through it, however I'm not too sure how long it will last.

    I don't really want to have to wipe the drive. Install Snow Leopard and all my other files and then install Lion.

    Does anybody have any other idea of how I might get round this?

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks


  4. Peter,

    It is from a design layer.

    At home now and dongle is at work so will double check dpi of sheet layer in the morning.

    Whats odd is that depending on the size/shape of the object the gradient fill is ok.

    I'll get back to you 1st thing in the morning. In the meantime attached image showing larger area and problem as I just explained.

    Thanks for your help on this. Much appreciated.

    Matt


  5. Your help will be much appreciated.

    When I export a 2d drawing with gradient fills to PDF (even at 300dpi) I get a grainy looking fill in the PDF viewer.

    On screen in Vectorworks the fill is smooth & fine.

    The PDF prints no problem i.e. no grainy effect.

    I've tried various combinations under Preferences/Display/Quartz imaging + Anti Aliasing but still end up with the same result.

    Am I missing something here?


  6. Hi guys,

    Wondering if there is some bright spark that can help me out.

    As you can see from the attached image this is currently a very simple 2D demi-lune shaped piece of furniture. I need to split the face on elevation into a series of panels 136mm wide, no problem on the flat face, is there some way of accurately working this out for the arcs either end from the plan?

    Really appreciate any help on this.

    Matt

  8. Hey Everyone,

    Got this reply from Nemetshek today:

    "Some fonts, even system fonts are not supported well when the

    Vectorworks Preference, "Quartz Imaging" is turned on. If you turn off

    this preference on the Display tab of the Vectorworks Preferences, the

    text should export as expected."

    Not being the most technical I don't know how that will affect documents but at least people can now read my text.

  9. Hey,

    On a recent drawing I sent I suddenly realised after sending that when exported as a PDF my drawing altered. The text in the call out box changed itself from reading "Move DG Socket at least 435mm off corner boxing" to "Move DG Socket at least 435mm of fcorner boxing".

    The second 'f' in 'off' moved itself on one space. I then noticed wherever I had written 'off' in diff boxes the same thing happened. Design Layer showed it as ok - it only changed on PDF. Anyone know why? I resorted to saying 'from' instead but would rather use 'off' if I can find out how. I've attached an image to show.

    Thanks

    Matt


  10. Hi Guys,

    I've just done a custom Title block with company image - but still pretty simple, I'm no expert.

    The block uses the same font/size as my default font/size for text - Fine. Is there a way of using a diff font/style or size at least in the record format between the title block titles and the entries I put in there when in place on a drawing?

    Thanks,

    Matt
